Machine Learning for Auto-Scaling Corda Node Containers

We are looking to drive the operational cost down for Corda R3 nodes. Corda R3 is a smart-contract Distributed Ledger technology. Our strategy is to do so by minimizing the cloud computing resources. Using machine learning and historic data we can proactively orchestrate a large number of nodes on behalf of our clients. The interaction between nodes is a type of social network lending itself to machine learning.

Dynamic Scheduling of NPC Behaviours in Modern Video Games

Persistent Non Player Characters (NPCs) in many modern video games follow schedules guiding their routines and behaviors over time as the player engages in play inside the game’s virtual world. In a game like Ubisoft’s recently released Watchdogs: Legion, where schedules are a player-facing game mechanic, a robust scheduling system is highly important and critical to the game’s financial and critical success.
Making good schedules for NPCs in this context, however, is surprisingly complex.

Water Protection and Participatory Film Making: Empowering connections among intercultural groups, Indigenous youth, water, culture, tradition, and technology

The shared goal of researching how filmmaking can be an effective tool in contributing to water protection efforts, and in promoting safe water access for Indigenous communities, has brought together groups from different cultures, sectors, and countries (Canada and Australia).

Understanding Failed Forensic Science: A Research-Based Radio Documentary Series

This project enhances scholarly and public understandings of how technical scientific knowledge shapes legal outcomes, especially through the process of finding facts. Fact determination is an unregulated yet enormously consequential task for courts. Yet the law of evidence remains widely conceptualized as an essentially rule-bound domain, including in legal pedagogy. Meanwhile, despite judicial efforts at gatekeeping for reliable science, forensic expertise continues to feature in miscarriages of justice.

A Community-Focused Pilot Project to Control the Impact of the Invasive Green Crab on the Native Lobster Population in Fortune Bay

This is a community focused two-year pilot project which brings together community leaders, the public, Memorial University, and Government Researchers to control the impact Green Crab have on the lobster and the environment in Fortune Bay.

Machine Learning based System Suggested Critiquing for in-car Conversational Recommendation

Car Infotainment and Navigation systems to date have only basic interactivity and functionality, and there is nothing in the car today that will keep drivers aware of their surroundings outside the car when the car is in a fully autonomous driving mode. Therefore, we want to contribute in the development of a new in-car infotainment system that is both interactive, personal, contextual (aware of the car’s location and surrounding services).

Examining the effectiveness of interactive digital media on children’s self-regulation through game-play and movement.

The proposed project plans to assist in the development of software that is designed to accompany traditional fitness equipment like stationary bicycles. By utilizing game-design elements in the software, in conjunction with the spin bike, our goal is to show improvements in physical exercise, self-regulation, and learning in children. We also plan to take a closer look at the impacts and implications that COVID has had on physical and mental health outcomes and seek to examine the barriers and opportunities that currently exist in today's shifting education sector.

Model-Based Security Compliance-By-Design for Low-Earth Orbit Satellite Operations Segments

Low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations require high levels of security and resilience to provide high quality, reliable and trustworthy global connectivity services to customers. For these systems to develop customer trust and find widespread use, developers must demonstrate compliance to a variety of security standards, policies, and regulations. However, because these systems are very large and complex, it is difficult to clearly and effectively show how the system satisfies all of its compliance requirements throughout its development lifetime.

Toward the development of a framework for research collaboration between public libraries and universities

Public libraries and universities can benefit greatly by partnering to conduct research. To ensure the sustainability and impact of these partnerships, they need to be grounded in an awareness of each organizations’ research needs, goals, resources, and strengths. This project will produce a framework that guides public libraries in identifying research needs, strategically selecting university partners, and developing research plans that address each organizations’ roles and responsibilities.

Creating a migration utility for a SaaS Content Management System (CMS) platform

A content management system (CMS), is an application that helps control the creation, publishing and archiving of site's content. CMSs also allow extending the functionalities of a site by installing modules or plugins. A considerable number of different CMS platforms with variety of sizes and capabilities can be found on the market. Some of the most popular CMSs are Joomla, Drupal, and WordPress. With the varies capabilities those CMS provide, organizations may decide to migrate their CMS-based Web applications to other CMS platforms to better meet their needs.
