Video-On Demand Equipment Allocation

The content delivery network market is undergoing rapid growth as a broadband penetration develops and the demand for Internet delivery of high-quality media increases. To facilitate the planning phase of Video-on-Demand (VoD) networks, in collaboration with Nortel Networks, we developed the VoD Equipment Alocation Tool.

Computer Modelling of DC Plasma Torches with Draught Air in a Gasification Reactor

The use of plasma torches enables the gasification of waste into clean energy without producing any secondary residue. Because of the extremely high temperatures produced by plasma torches (more than 5,000 to 10,000 degrees Celsius depending on the type of gas used), the design of plasma torches and reactors presents new technological challenges to designers. Computer modelling of the plasma jet and gasification reactor will provide the basic data required for designing new equipment.

Model Transformation

In recent years, model-driven approaches have been used to tackle problems of ever-increasing complexity. A crucial component is the modelling of model transformation. This project will develop theory, techniques and a prototype implementation of a model transformation system in partnership with Manyeta, a provider of high-performance support systems and content management solutions which help clients to optimize business-processes by using technology more effectively and through the control of IT spending.

An Automated N-Dimensional Brain Tissue and Lesion Classifier in MS Patients using MR Images

NeuroRx is a Montreal, QC-based company which provides professional management of MRI-related study activities and delivers precise MRI outcome measurements that are performed in a regulatory compliant environment. The intern’s project will involve examining the computational issues associated with multi-dimensional analysis, namely, the computational efficiency and memory utilization, while creating an N-dimensional algorithm for segmenting and classifying the different tissue types in the brain (white matter, grey matter and cerebral spinal fluid) as well as white matter lesions.

Precise Calculation of Brain Atrophy Due to Focal Lesions in MS Patients: Modification of Non-linear Registration Algorithm

NeuroRx is a Montreal, QC-based company which provides professional management of MRI-related study activities and delivers precise MRI outcome measurements that are performed in a regulatory compliant environment. This internship research project will involve image processing to quantify local volume changes in serial MR images of the brain based on deformation field analysis using techniques that are relatively independent of pathological changes in image intensity.
