A chance to excel in Canada

Together, the students and their professor developed a system to visualize the evolution of a software program from its first inception to the latest edition. The system provides useful information to software engineers and designers as they continually advance computer software packages to be faster and more user-friendly for new computer operating systems.

Taking home fond memories of Canada

However, now that she’s here, she cannot stop singing praises for the beautiful city and culture of Québec as well as the top-quality research climate which she has now been a part of.

“I wasn’t originally thinking about doing an internship abroad during my undergraduate degree, but when my Professor in Brazil told me about Mitacs Globalink, I had to apply!”

Geo-spatial Data Mining Applications in Marketing

The project will develop methods for constructing profiles and predictive models for geo-spatial data. The socio-demographic profile will be developed for the geographical areas of interest. In addition, the models will be developed to identify areas with high potential; for acquiring new customers. The targeting of these areas may be conducted through unaddressed direct mail. Methods of testing effectiveness of marketing campaign and predictive models will be developed.

Classification of Acoustic Signals using Deep Learning Architectures

The classification of acoustic signals whose factors of variation are due to different atmospheric and sound propagation effect is a challenging problem. The internship will explore new learning algorithms for this application, which have the potential to capture some of the complex structure in the data.

A Generative Model of Impulsive Sound Production and Propagation

The overall objective is to design a learning system that takes a training set of acoustic signals and produces a classifier that can identify the category of the acoustic signal, out of a small number of categories. We have already found that it is important to consider the factors of variation that can influence the signal, and the proposed project aims at exploiting physical modeling knowledge to structure a generative model of the acoustic production of the observed signals.

Diabetes Tele-Monitoring for Older People via the Use of BlackBerries and Tablet PCs

In this project, 10 older patients who have uncontrolled diabetes will use wireless technology including a blood glucose monitor and a Blackberry or a Tablet PC to transmit their blood glucose readings from home to two nurses working at a private homecare company. These patients will transmit their blood glucose readings approximately three times a day during two 3]month phases, the total duration of the study period being 6 months. Throughout, patientsf blood glucose levels will be monitored by the two nurses.
