Optimizing the design and implementation of technology education programs to advance skills and diversity in information and communications technology (ICT) in Canada

There is ample evidence that increasing Canada’s innovation, productivity and competitive advantage depends on expanding its skilled digital workforce to both implement and adopt innovative technologies. Despite the pressing need to increase the digital skills and participation of underrepresented groups in information and communications technology (ICT) industry and programs to diversifying computer science, the numbers have remained persistently low. While some initiatives have demonstrated success, often it is transient and not sustained.

A Context Aware, Lightweight, and Adaptive Authentication and Authorization

With increasing security risks in critical network infrastructures and emerging cloud technologies with shared capabilities, as well as increasing regulatory requirements on privacy, and data protection, there is a growing need for new approaches to manage security and privacy compliance.

The intelligent virtual agent as a patient Personalized companion

In this project the intern will develop an intelligent virtual concierge and integrate it with Curatio’s social network platform. The intelligent concierge will learn about each user over time and act as a personal assistant of the user in using the social network platform.

Feature-based process modelling and customized software development for adopting ISO 10002 and ISO 10004 in Food Industry

Several customer satisfaction problems are identified in service industry as the causes of inefficiencies, and then further they could potentially lead to value destruction and loss of competitiveness. Such emerging organizational threats can be turned into opportunities by integrating a customer satisfaction management module into the existing operating software tool.

Network Traffic Classification for Cyber Threat and Malware Detection

Bell’s Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) team is collaborating with academic institutions in order to further research and develop cyber security analytics for the protection of critical infrastructure and data. The focus of this research is to create and leverage a traffic classification project specifically for network security purposes. This research to design distributed algorithms fast enough for analyzing massive high-dimensional
data generated by network traffic to detect cyber threats/ attacks and anomaly in the network.

Cooperative economy in the era of collaborative economy platforms

This project's overarching goal is to spur cooperative enterprises to move into the collaborative economy. Even though the "collaborative economy" shares many values with cooperative enterprises, too few of them have entered the pace in Quebec and Canada, but also globally. This paradox puzzles Quebec's cooperation and mutuality council (CQCM). They want to reverse this trend and help old and new cooperative companies to offer services linked to the collaborative economy platforms. In order to do so, the CQCM want to know why there is such a paradox, and how to act upon it.

Strategy and legitimation in blockchain innovations and multisided markets

This research project will work with Canadian start-up 6Sensmatic in two areas: building a digital marketing platform and exploring strategic opportunities related to the blockchain; a digital ledger technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. First, the intern will help 6Sensmatic design, develop, prototype and analyze a novel digital marketing platform that will connect firms to social media influencers that can advertise their products.

Development of Computer Vision-based Intelligent Control System for Drones

In recent years, the small-scale drones have gained a growing interest in industry and in academia since they are widely available and have many potential applications. The integration of intelligent camera into drone systems broadens the range of potential drone applications and enhances the performance of the drone. However, how to design and implement the computer vision-based control algorithms on the drone with limited computational resources is very challenging.
