Système de classification automatique de la rétinopathie diabétique à partir d’images de fond d’oeil

L'évaluation des lésions rétiniennes sur des images de fond d'oeil permet de diagnostiquer et de stadifier la rétinopathie diabétique, complication du diabète pouvant entrainer la cécité. Actuellement, ce processus est manuel, long et dispendieux. Le projet envisagé consiste à proposer un premier système complet de classification automatique de la rétinopathie diabétique. Nous développerons et validerons de nouveaux algorithmes de détection et classification de lésions rétiniennes en exploitant des techniques d’apprentissage-machine et la base d’images de Diagnos Inc.

Design and Optimization of Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) and WiFi Heterogeneous Networks

In this project we intend to find an abstract understanding of heterogeneous networks (HetNets. Our main focus is the small cell networks based on LTE-A and WiFi systems. We will start by investigating simple and efficient resource management algorithms in such networks and attempt to find a simplified model for the quality of service (QoS) in such networks. This model will be interfaced with a software tool already developed at Siradel and used to clarify the expected performance of a HetNet in a given wireless environment.

Low-Cost Ultra-Thin Flexible Silicon Photovoltaics

Performance optimization and prototype demonstration of the low-cost high-efficiency Localized Inherently Thin (LIT) solar cell technology platform will be carried out during the two year Mitacs Elevate Post Doctoral Fellowship program. The candidate will also design and optimize the fabrication process, working alongside industry staff, for technology transfer and commercialization. A business study will also be carried out as part of the program in order to establish the framework for large scale manufacturing.

Combined Harvesting and Storage of Solar Power

This project aims to develop a low cost, biologically inspired solar energy harvesting and storage device. This unique combination addresses the intermittent availability of sunlight during different times of the day by smoothing out variations in the output using stored energy. Solar energy will be captured by very efficient bacterial proteins that normally drive photosynthesis. The captured energy is harvested from the proteins and stored in a liquid salt solution that forms the bulk of the device.

Image Deblurring for Mobile Devices Year Two

The wide proliferation of digital cameras has resulted in a massive flow of images captured then shared online in various forms. At the same time, capturing high-quality images with embedded cameras remains a significant challenge. One of the most common image degrading effects is motion blur, produced by camera movement while taking a photograph. This problem is widespread and has attracted considerable research and development efforts, but there is still no satisfying solution in place suitable for a wide variety of conditions.

Smarter Microelectronics Packaging for Performance Scaling

This research project will investigate materials and process behaviors in microelectronic packages that are become increasingly dense and explore novel alternatives to accommodate such densities. When more components are placed and interconnected with each other in smaller and smaller spaces, traditional materials and methods for package assembly become difficult, if not impossible, to replicate.

Development and testing of networked equipment program

In this project, the objective is to design and develop a mechanism for building networking solutions that would be used for automatic communication of machinery devices in the Utility facilities. For this purpose, the intern will conduct a research on the requirements of the desired applications in the target industry and extract the technical parameters that need to be considered. Also, he will study the potential in the existing technologies for enabling these communications.

Signal/Noise analyzer for EM Telemetry tool

he ultimate objective of this project is to design and develop a signal/noise analyzer to improve the reliability and efficiency of EM-based measurement-while-drilling (MWD) tool within various strata formation under high temperature, deep drilling environment. In order to analyze the received signal contaminated by surface and underground noise, it is essential to understand the electrical and magnetic field behavior with respect to rock formation and the transmitted signal properties including frequency, amplitude, and phase.

Contextual recommendation for online merchants

Shopify provides a platform for merchants to sell their products online. Shopify merchants typically face various common concerns at different phases of their development, such as uploading their product descriptions, marketing their shop, increasing their sales, etc. The goal of this project is to build a software system to identify which problems the merchant is currently facing and for which some help is welcome, and to make customized, pertinent, timely and yet unintrusive suggestions to solve these problems, thus acting as a virtual business assistant.
