Heart failure is among the causes of death in developed countries. Scientific and medical research has made improvements in treating this condition. Mathematical modelling and computer simulation would help in developing the necessary technologies to detect and treat heart blockages and also give a better understanding and protocols for ablation, the clinical procedure used to treat this condition.
We propose to design and build an advanced visual analytics tool to support the analysis of large-scale e-commerce datasets. This data is generated by software platforms that collect information about the performance of e-commerce systems, consumer behaviour, and messages sent by retailers to consumers. Current e-commerce tools provide only simple overview statistics because of the scale and complexity of this data, but more sophisticated analysis could lead to much more effective strategies for e-commerce engagement.
Researchers have recognized Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) potential but have not fully understood the benefits of ICTs as ways of strengthening rural communities in places such as Manitoba.
Investigating geographical footprints of income shifting by multinational enterprises. PwC owns a large data set across all industries in Canada from its tax consulting engagements and annual standard tax filings from clients. This growing data source is an opportunity for accurate tax benchmarking, trend analysis and gaining deeper insights by transforming them into market differentiating knowledge that can be dynamically shared and accessed by multiple teams.
The proposed research project aims at evaluating and improving a technique in Statistical Natural Processing called Topic Modelling in order to apply it to real-life scenarios. Topic modeling is a techniques that allows the quick discovery of what the main topics of a document collection are, and thus automatically answers the question What do these documents talk about?.
Several approaches have been proposed to implement topic modeling, but their evaluation have rarely taken the end-use into account.
The Graphene Audio group at TandemLaunch is working to revolutionize loudspeaker design through the use of graphene composite materials (Graphene-CMs) in loudspeaker membranes. Graphene is a newly discovered material with exceptional mechanical and electrical characteristics. Its low mass and high strength make it ideal for use in acoustic transducers offering an immediate benefit over existing loudspeaker technologies.
This project seeks to improve the manufacturing techniques and acoustic characteristics of these Graphene-CMs.
Cloud computing has emerged as an important platform for business and companies, providing a cost-effective way to scale business service with users demand. The proposed research project aims to take full advantage of cloud computing for legal-service companies in Canada, with a particular focus on cloud resource allocation. Unlike conventional resource-allocation schemes that are either centralized or distributed, the proposed research will develop a new hybrid resource-allocation scheme that enjoys clear advantages over conventional schemes.
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.
