A comic strip about IT environmental impact

In December 2023, Spirals1 colleagues and I welcomed Marie Spénale2, comic strip author, at the lab to talk about our research in the team; the idea for this collaboration was to create a comic strip about a research subject, environmental impact of information and communications technology (ICT) in our case (Marie already worked with other Inria teams previously).

This is a good opportunity to communicate with the outer world about what we’re doing in the team, in a more accessible way to the public than through very serious scientific publications :)

A companion blog post3 was also published today on Inria’s website.
