the team






Elisa Fromont is associate professor in Computer Science and Head of the Machine Learning project in the Data Intelligence team of the laboratory Hubert Curien. Her research focuses on data mining (pattern mining, graph mining, clustering under constraints, inductive databases) and computer vision (image classification, full semantic scene labelling, object tracking in videos). She defended her “Habilitation to supervise researches” (HDR) in December 2015.

She manages the first year of the French Master program “Web Intelligence”. She coordinates the ANR SOLSTICE (2014-2017) research project on design of new models and tools for representing and managing images and videos and is involved in the ANR LIVES (2016-2020) on learning with Interacting ViEwS.

Hubert Konik is Assistant Professor (1st class) of University Jean Monnet, member of the laboratory Hubert Curien, the largest CNRS research laboratory of this University. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science and Image Processing in 1994 on pyramidal approaches for the segmentation of textured images. His research interests are focused on image processing and analysis, more particularly content aware image processing for new services and usages. In this field, he was co-director of manye PhD students, some in collaboration with companies.

He manages at Télécom Saint-Etienne (engineer school from this University and associated to Mines-Telecom Institute) a work-linked training in apprenticeship entitled “Image & Photonics, smart-industries”.
