Predicting productivity in UpBeing app users

It is no secret that people strive to be more productive in their personal and professional lives. Productivity applications have made life easier for people by enabling them to meticulously monitor their output in numerous domains. Even so, there remains the problem of how one can most effectively use all this knowledge in order to improve oneself. In the current project, I will work with UpBeing to determine how productivity can be measured and which factors contribute to improved personal productivity.

Timely and Extended Monitoring in Emergencies and Disasters (Tx MED)


Assessing user experience of a Virtual Reality (VR) based visual field exam when compared to the Gold Standard Humphrey visual field exam

2.2 billion people live with vision impairment: Over 1 billion of these cases are, or were, preventable/treatable. Most of these individuals live in low income Countries, where access to care can be limited. Why do people still go blind from preventable conditions? In order to treat, first, you need to be able to diagnose. The first step to prevent these conditions is to make diagnostic technology available, accessible, and affordable. This project is to assess the usability and feasibility of portable vision health screening in a clinical environment.

Automatic alignment of subtitle and audio track for TV broadcasting

Subtitles are typically generated postproduction and might be mis-aligned with the audio track. Alignment of subtitles to audio is a task which aims to produce accurate timings of the words within a subtitle track given a corresponding audio track. The alignment task is of significant relevance to Bell media. Semi–automated solutions exist, and they involve different degrees of human involvement in post-edit. Automatic subtitle alignment will reduce production time and human labor costs. This research project will look at automating the subtitle alignment.

5G Enabled Energy Management for Smart Buildings

The data and AI revolution that is sweeping many industries is also poised to revolutionize automation, control and safety in commercial and residential buildings. In order to activate the full power and promise of AI, we need large volumes of data that are accessible at high-speed over physically separated buildings/equipment. The fifth generation (5G) wireless communication networks provide large bandwidth for high throughput data, unparalleled reliability with low latency and high level of security and guaranteed bandwidth.

Expert explanations via video: The key to unlocking scientific journal articles for university students?

Scientific research papers are complex, dense, and filled with jargon, so traditionally the valuable knowledge they contain has been accessible to only a handful of experts. SAGE publishing, one of the world’s largest academic publishers, and Dr. Adam Frost, a cognitive neuroscientist, independently created video formats that help scientists directly communicate their discoveries and practices in approachable ways so that that knowledge can reach a much wider audience. Both SAGE and Dr.

Dilution prediction and reduction in underground mines based on stoping methods using artificial intelligence

Given that dilution is a problem that reduces the profit of many underground operations, the dilution monitoring, prediction, and reduction convey the capability to increase operational efficiency. The proposed research aims to develop an unplanned dilution monitoring, prediction, and reduction tool. The research methodology will be based on artificial intelligence (AI)-based models. More specifically, the research will focus on the applicability of ensemble classifiers, naive Bayes classifiers, logistic regression, and neural networks.

The development of an online shopping browser extension that empowers consumers to choose brands based on ethical certifications and company practices

Over the last 20 years, online shopping has been steadily increasing, and recently doubled since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Shoppers have also become more ethically conscious and interested in fair trade, sustainability, the source of goods, and company working conditions and taxes. However, for the average online shopper, the ability to make ethical choices is limited as the necessary information can be difficult to find.

Dynamic Network Management and Performance Optimization for Smart Talk Beacon’s security architecture

Internet of things (IoT) systems require significant management related to external intrusions, internal threats, device failures, access management, and performance monitoring. In addition to network management issues, quality of service (QoS) must be maintained to predict changes and determine device and network performance. A good IoT system should be able to identify, track, and mitigate problems while dynamically adjusting its operation.

Bioenergetics and population dynamics of polar bears past, present, and future: Understanding the effects of climate change

In the Arctic, climate change is leading to declines in seasonal sea-ice cover. Polar bears are increasingly at-risk from sea-ice loss because they use the ice as a platform to hunt seals, their preferred food source. When the ice retreats seasonally, bears rely on their stored energy reserves as fuel, but climate-driven changes in sea-ice melt and refreezing have forced bears to go for longer periods without access to seals. With temperatures expected to increase, it is important to know how polar bear populations will respond to never-before-seen declines in sea ice.
