Designing Social Value Architecture for Social Ventures

Tyze Personal Networks Ltd. (www.tyze.com) is a for-profit, social venture business interested in designing infrastructure that supports its dual goal of achieving social and economic value.

Gas Phase and Surface Chemical Consequences of Dielectric Barrier Discharge Plasmas

The proposed research will work to characterize plasmas of the type that form where the charging roll contacts the photoreceptor in a typical xerographic printer.  Laboratory experiments will form discharges under ambient atmospheric conditions and at the high-vacuum exit of a dielectric-barrier-discharge pulsed molecular beam.  Spectroscopic measurements will record fluorescence emission signatures of plasmas under these conditions, and time-of-flight mass spectrometry will monitor the presence of reactive intermediates.  

Accelerating Automated Synchronization of Multiple-Camera Videos on multicore platforms.

This project aims to explore the feasibility of and the tradeoffs involved with accelerating multi-camera synchronization algorithms on multicore processors. Specifically, this project plans to explore acceleration using ‘traditional’ multicore CPUs and massively-parallel Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). PluralEyes, a product for synchronizing audio and video recordings released by Singular Software, a Vancouver-area company, is the software application informing this research and stands to directly benefit from the insights gained.
