Rule Based Systems in Parametric Modeling

Computer‐Aided Design (CAD) systems have matured into comprehensive environments that enable designers to efficiently represent and refine their designs. Parametric modeling, in which a design can be easily altered after it is made, is a major recent development in the building sector of the CAD industry. Bentley's Generative Components (GC) is a one such system.

Process Visualization, Communication and Collaboration in Design Teams

Computer‐Aided Design (CAD) systems have matured into comprehensive environments that enable designers to efficiently represent and refine their designs. Parametric modeling, in which a design can be easily altered after it is made, is a major recent development in the building sector of the CAD industry. Bentley's Generative Components (GC) is one such system. It implements a suite of tools that supports designers in developing adaptable part libraries, in configuring designs to fit context and in reusing design work across projects.

Parametric Design Patterns

Computer‐Aided Design (CAD) systems have matured into comprehensive environments that enable designers to efficiently represent and refine their designs. Parametric modeling, in which a design can be easily altered after it is made, is a major recent development in the building sector of the CAD industry. Bentley's Generative Components (GC) is a one such system. To use GC effectively designers build models in logical pieces and often write programs in its scripting language. In doing so, they must use skills that are more typical to computer programming than to design.

Evaluation of Analytics requirements in Socio-Economic Benefits of e-Justice

The goal of this internship is to provide the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and the Attorney General’s Information Technology team with a set of recommendations identifying the key factors in support of a business case to be presented to the Minister in 2009. The business case will delineate key initiatives related to the design, development and delivery of a citizen‐centered electronic Justice service. These objectives fully support the stated mission and goals of the Office of the Chief Information Officer and the Attorney General of British Columbia.

Analysis of Decision Support System Metrics

Octothorpe Software is a decision sciences company that offers systems which organizations can use to improve their performance. This MITACS ACCELERATE internship project will be focused on developing new methods and metrics that organizations can use to improve their competitiveness. This will be achieved by developing the procedures, processes and the tools for displaying and understanding the key factors to improving the organizations success.

Performance Metrics/Leadership Development Analysis

This internship will assist in the development of a diverse generational employee survey towards leadership development and workplace goal alignment. Initial baseline measurements will be obtained from Watson Wyatt, who have worked with BC Hydro since 2002 to develop, deliver and analyze the annual employee survey and results. The main objective of the research is to understand the perspectives and gauge the level of engagement of the workforce of BC Hydro.

Visualizing Fan Trends

The objective of this research project is to insight trends and associations between fans of various entertainment properties, the entertainment industry and the media properties themselves. The intern will begin by analyzing data from various sources such as product sales reports, market growth rates as well as data previously collected by the company. Based on the data, key factors will be extracted and employed in the analysis. Existing visualization techniques will be tested and if necessary, new methods will be created to better interpret the data.

Zeros 2 Heroes Data Model: User Experience

The aim of this research is to design and implement a model of social currency in a networked community which is based on the stock and flow concepts most commonly associated with investment forecasting and user choice in an environment of scarcity. In other words, creating a system which can assist in predicting those things users would most be willing to put their actual money behind. This research is intended to ultimately assist developers of film, television etc.

Mathematical Investigation of a Balance Metric using Hypergraphs: Finding a Paper, Rock, Scissor-like relation between Game Scoring and Gaming Strategies

Fit Brains technology uses five classes in skill development that are loosely associated to certain regions of the brain. Together, these skill sets help define the human experience. It is also believed that increased fitness across these five classes can better a sense of wellness. Sometimes, incidental effects in game strategies have demonstrated that the point metric contributing to the fitness levels can be tampered with and can mislead the player in various ways.

Increasing the Number of Targeted Unique Visitors on FitBrains.com by Using Contextual Advertising and Search Engine Optimization

Fit Brains is an online platform providing fun and entertaining games that exercise the five key cognitive areas of the brain. Since inception, the platform has attracted about 20,000 unique visitors per month. Although the number of visitors is reasonable, Fit Brains’ goal is to expand the platform to several millions interested in exercising their cognitive functions. Therefore, Fit Brains is exploring the use of contextual advertising and search engine optimization (SEO) to increase the number of targeted unique visitors.
