Challenge of a Balanced Research Program
We want a balanced Research program
7
Challenge of a Balanced Research Program
We want a balanced Research program
But gravity pulls things downward...
So we need some anti-gravity

Gravity
  • Return on short-term investment
  • Short-term Advanced Development Business Units
    want
  • Assuming more or less predictable trends
  • Being best in the current competitive arena
  • Engineering excellence

  • Return on short-term investment
  • Short-term Advanced Development Business Units
    want
  • Assuming more or less predictable trends
  • Being best in the current competitive arena
  • Engineering excellence
  • Return on long-term investment
  • Long-term Research the Business needs
  • Anticipating business upsetting trends
  • Putting a stake in the next competitive arena
  • Scientific excellence

11
The Chief Scientist Function at a Glance
  • Scientific Substance Image of Thomson RD
  • Scientific orientation of the Research program
  • Interface with the Thomson Scientific Council
  • External scientific relationship with
  • the academic world
  • peers in technology companies
  • funding agencies public authorities
  • Scientific knowledge network in Thomson RD

12
Scientific Orientation of Research Program 1
  • Work with Corporate Research management senior
    researchers on the mid to long-term orientation
    of the Research program
  • Objectives deliverables
  • Technology trends roadmaps
  • Assessment of long-term business relevance
  • Including in Intellectual Property
  • Assessment of competitive positioning
  • Work process to be defined

13
Scientific Orientation of Research Program 2
  • Strawman list of long term research topics to
    study
  • 3D imaging
  • Compression, beyond MPEG-4?
  • Computational imaging (to be defined...)
  • Cognitive radio
  • Content distribution technologies (P2P and
    beyond)
  • Software tools methods for IC firmware
  • Architecture modeling of systems
  • more to be discussed and then selected

14
External Scientific Relationship 1
  • Build a bridge to the academic world
  • Not a gangplank...
  • Nurture research collaboration with the best
    academic institutions worldwide
  • Help (not replace!) peer-to-peer research
    interactions
  • Scout the academic environment for best teams in
    Thomsons fields of interest
  • Be a Thomson technology ambassador
  • Discuss setup formal collaboration frameworks
    (if useful)
  • Priority on China universities

15
External Scientific Relationship 2
  • Seeking advice from the academic world
  • Thomson Scientific Council
  • Advising the academic world, e.g.,
  • Scientific Council of CEA-LETI
  • Scientific Council of Groupement des Ecoles de
    Télécommunication (GET), etc.
  • Advising funding agencies public authorities
  • Scientific interactions with other technology
    companies?

16
Scientific Knowledge Network in Thomson
  • Make technical experts a valued company resource
  • Debate widely
  • Wide-ranging lively technical discussion fora
  • What tool?
  • Advise, but also learn
  • In-house academic conferences?
  • Only the technical community can make it happen!
  • The Research community can get it started!
