François Pachet's past activities at Lip6
I used to belong to the research team OASIS,
at LIP6 laboratory, the Computer Science
of Université Pierre
& Marie Curie (Paris 6), itself in Campus
I currently work at SONY CSL-Paris
where I head the computer music team.

My research often produces experimental systems: NéOpus,
MusicSpace, RecitalComposer at Sony
is an extension of Smalltalk
with first-order, forward-chaining production rules. It is being used in
a number of applications:
automatic ventilation of patients, automatic analysis of tonal music, database
model transformation, etc.
MusES is an environment
for experimenting with knowledge representation techniques in tonal music.
It contains a representation of the basic concepts of tonal harmony (pitch-classes,
notes, scales, chords, intervals ...), and their most current operations.
Several systems have been built on top of MusES: automatic analysis of
jazz chord sequences, automatic harmonization of 4-voice chorals, simulation
European people participate in the JIM
conferences on Computer Music.

for Backtracking in Smalltalk. It is a framework for stating and solving
combinatorial problems (CSP) involving object structures. It is the basis
of Pierre Roy's Ph.D. thesis.
Liret's Ph.D. thesis concentrates on combining rewriting techniques
EpiTalk is a
platform for the specification and automatic generation of advisor systems
It is based on a botanical metaphor: epiphyte systems (hence the prefix
i.e. systems that feed from existing systems without perturbating them,
in order to analyse their behavior. As ivy grows on a tree, our advisors
grow on - and adapt to the evolution of - arbitrary host applications.
