Data analysis and interpretation is a critical step in metabolomics. In metabolomics studies, large amounts of data must be evaluated by appropriate analytical tools in order to transform data into knowledge. Chenomx Inc. is a company that provides metabolomics research software and services. Its flagship software product Chenomx NMR Suite is an integrated set of tools for identifying and quantifying metabolites in Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra.
Reliable communication over wireless channels has been an active research area for decades. By employing multiple transmit and receive antennas, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems increase the capacity of a wireless channel, bringing significant gain over single-input single-output (SISO) systems. One of the main tools to achieve the improved capacity are error correction codes. During the years since the introduction of the error correction codes, there have been many important breakthroughs in this field. Polar codes are the most recent of these revolutions.
We propose to develop smart algorithms for document generation, by innovating in the field of natural language processing and document intelligence. We envision the next generation of business applications able to parse and understand documents, to compose documents automatically, and to respond intelligently to voice commands. Our industrial partner, Koneka Inc. has a document automation platform that generates documents by assembling clauses (content-blocks) together based on a set of user inputs.
Cellular wireless communication has reached a level of coverage and reliability that it is considered a commodity. However, the dramatic increase in Internet traffic to and from wireless devices poses significant challenges for network operators. While the current growth of traffic is mostly due to consumers communicating more frequently and larger amounts of data over the wireless infrastructure, much of the future growth is predicted to come from non-human operated devices or so-called machine-to-machine (M2M) communication.
The objective of this proposed project is to develop a prototype numerical simulation software that can simulate the physical processes inside semiconductor lasers and exchange information with a simplified compact model. The combination of these two models can better balance the trade-off between accuracy and simulation performance. The resulting integration will be suitable for studying issues arising from the integration of semiconductor lasers in photonic integrated circuits with 1000s of elements, which is a critical challenge for the next generation of optical communications devices.
The objective of this project is to develop an analytics platform that will give us an understanding of sensory data in predicting trends and relationships between sales and wine sensory data. The wine sensory data we will use in this project is entered by reviewers and consumers rating various attributes such as Aroma, Appearance and Flavor during wine tasting. The Wine Sales data is gathered by the BC liquor board.
In the Internet of Things (IoT), physical objects are connected to achieve a variety of applications. Many rural and remote communities lack the fast connectivity to the Internet that will allow the advent of IoT. This project aims at providing this connectivity by exploiting unused TV channels, gradually made available by a growing number of regulators worldwide for digital communication applications.
The performance we require from our buildings is ever increasing. Heightened security needs, the push for increasingly efficient use of resources, improved comfort, flexibility of facility space, and changing threats from climate change or other environmental factors are some of the challenges facing designers and operators. There are a complex array of interrelated components that are necessary to confront these challenges. Integrating these systems effectively is essential to meeting the challenges facing designers while providing value to the client.
A well-maintained hydration status is important for the well-being of human body. Significant deviation from the proper hydration state, either dehydration or hyper hydration, could lead to neurologic complications or even fatal results. Existing hydration measurement carried out in laboratory settings, such as blood and urine test, though accurate, require both expensive equipment and professional experiences. Some newly developed devices which measure saliva, sweat, or bio-impedance improved measurement flexibility but either with compromised accuracy or limited to specific activities.
