Gilles Dowek

I am a researcher at Inria and professeur attaché at the ENS Paris-Saclay.

I am a member of the Laboratoire Spécification et Vérification, in the Deducteam team where we develop the logical framework Dedukti and the encyclopedia Logipedia.

I am interested in the formalization of mathematics, in proof processing systems, in the physics of computation, in the safety of aerospace systems, and in the epistemology and ethics of informatics. Here is the list of my scientific papers and some books and philosophical papers.

I contribute to the Logique course in the third year of the bachelor degree. I contribute to the preparation of the Agrégation de mathématiques. I teach the course Foundations of proof systems at the MPRI. Here are its course notes Proofs in theories. Here are the videos of ten lectures of 1:30 each of the course the principles of programming languages I taught at École polytechnique.

Some of my course notes have been published, as books, others are on line.

I am a member of the of the Comité national pilote d'éthique du numérique, of the Conseil national du numérique, of the Scientific board of the Societé informatique de France of the Scientific board of La main à la pâte, and of the Comite national francais d'histoire et de philosophie des sciences et des techniques.

I am interested in education and I try to draw the attention of the adminstration to the need of introducing computer science in K-12. I have been a member of the Committee apointed by the Minister of Education to suggest a computer science curiculum for senior high school students, this has lead to the curiculum published in the Bulletin officiel on October 13th 2011. I have participated to the report of the Academy of Sciences L'enseignement de l'informatique - Il est urgent de ne plus attendre.

I also have been a consultant for the National Institute of Aerospace, a lab of the NASA Langley research center. Among other things, I have participated to the development and the proof of ACCoRD, an Airborne Coordinated Conflict Resolution and Detection system.

I try to make science popular with books, videos, a monthly column in Pour la Science.
