Cities Under Siege
Cities have become the new battleground of our increasingly urban world. From the slums of the global South to the wealthy financial centres of the West, Cities Under Siege traces how political violence now operates through the sites, spaces, infrastructures and symbols of the world's rapidly expanding metropolitan areas. Drawing on a wealth of original research, Graham shows how Western and Israeli militaries and security forces now perceive all urban terrain as a real or imagined conflict zone

Lloyd George - the great outsider
David Lloyd George became the authentic radical of British politics in part because of intellectual conviction, but, more significantly, because his birth and upbringing had made him contemptuous of the establishment and its values. He did not so much break the rules of conventional society and politics as refuse to acknowledge their existence. He remained an "outsider" to the end. This event celebrates the publication of Lord Hattersley's new book David Lloyd George: The Great Outsider.

The Tsar Liberates Europe? Russia against Napoleon, 1807-1814
In 1812-14 Alexander I defeated Napoleon's invasion of Russia and then created and led a European alliance all the way to Paris. This lecture explains why and how he did this. It discusses Russian grand strategy, diplomacy and espionage, as well as the tsarist military machine, and the mobilisation of the home front. In both Western and Russian historiography the Russian achievement in 1813-14 is greatly underestimated, which seriously distorts understanding of European power politics and the ca

Combien d’objets dans une image ?

Dans cet exposé Jean-Jacques Lévy propose de décortiquer quelques algorithmes d'étiquetage des objets dans une image, c'est à dire de segmentation de cette image en régions homogènes, et de regarder en détail la complexité algorithmique d'un tel mécanisme. Cela permet de montrer dans un cas concret, quels formalismes permettent d'analyser les performances d'un algorithme et de vérifier sa validité. On y croise la fonction d’Ackermann dont le rôle est essentiel en informatique
