Trunk task-oriented training combined with functional electrical stimulation to improve functional independence in spinal cord injured individuals

Following a spinal cord injury (SCI), sensory and motor impairments affect the ability to perform daily life tasks independently, such as transferring or grabbing an object. Intuitively to accomplish these tasks, the use of the upper and lower limbs is obvious, but the trunk is equally essential. Trunk control alterations generate deficits in the functional independence (FI), even in sitting position. However, alteration processes and clear treatment guidelines have not been issued.

Elaboration of a high-throughput toolbox for analysis and visualization of mesoscale longitudinal cortical imaging dataset

In recent years, a dramatic increase in computer processing power and storage allowed the exploration of new frontiers in science by analyzing large, complex datasets. The field of neuroscience is evolving towards larger and more complex studies creating a huge amount of data that is hard to understand using classical analyses. Thus, the development of tools able to process voluminous datasets is necessary to advance our understanding of brain function.

IL-1-dependent ncRNA-based-therapy approach to enhance the bioactivity of endothelial progenitor cells in ischemic retinopathy: a new vasoprotective strategy

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is the leading cause of blindness in premature neonates. ROP is associated with inflammation largely mediated trough interleukin (IL-1), which triggers an initial critical phase of ocular vascular degeneration. ROP is also an excellent model of ischemic retinopathies in general. The formation of new blood vessels after tissue ischemia is not only restricted to local endothelial cell proliferation, but lately shown to involve endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) capable of forming a neovascular network on their own.

Les incidences de la pandémie sur l'État de droit du point de vue de la garantie des droits économiques, sociaux et culturels des migrants: approche comparée au regard du droit interne et du droit international

Le projet a pour objet l'étude des conséquences de la pandémie sur la garantie des droits économiques, sociaux et culturels des migrants en situation de mobilité, volontaire ou contrainte, pour des motifs économiques ou des considérations d’ordre humanitaire.
Le contexte d'urgence sanitaire à l'échelle mondiale a conduit de nombreux gouvernements à adopter des mesures d'exception.

Digital transformation with glassware

This project aims to develop a new deep learning algorithm based on various existing CNN-based algorithms, like SPPNet, Fast RCNN, Faster RCNN, YOLO, RetinaNet, CornerNet, etc. to detect the specific machine, forklift, in an image stream and classify the images by the type of forklift. Meanwhile, the company's existing cloud environment and the speed requested by a real-time system must be considered. The project will resolve a couple of problems.

Methods for Polymorphic Screening

Many chemical compounds can exist in multiple crystalline forms, which are called polymorphs. Polymorphs have the same composition, but their properties can vary markedly. In many fields, conditions for crystallization are screened exhaustively to generate as many polymorphs as possible, from which the most advantageous form can be selected.

Optimization of task sequencing and allocation

Nowadays, software projects are no longer isolated but drive the business process of many non-IT companies. With the rise of AI applied in many industries, the problem of optimally scheduling tasks and allocating proper resources has significantly increased the challenge because of the diversity of tasks and stakeholders in the project. Due to the large volume and dynamic nature of the required information, manual optimization is typically error-prone and inefficient.

Développer le leadership et améliorer le fonctionnement des équipes : Développer et évaluer des interventions basées sur les données probantes en entreprise

Dirigeants et chercheurs insistent sur l’importance du développement du leadership pour assurer un fonctionnement organisationnel optimal. Les études qui se sont attardées au développement du leadership stipulent que les programmes utilisés à cette fin doivent être développés en se reposant davantage sur la logique de l’utilisation des données probantes en gestion (evidence-based management) pour en assurer l’efficacité.

Providing value to SMB by optimizing ETL

New point-of-sale (POS) machines help small businesses catalog transactions and inventory by warehousing customer, vendor, product, and sales data. This data, however, is usually warehoused in a data table that is not accessible to modern analytics and management software, such as Lightspeed. To help these businesses take advantage of their data, Enkidoo provides a service to export small business data by building an extract-transform-load (ETL) pipeline to Lightspeed. However, this process can be tedious, due to mismatches in column data and the template.

Unsupervised Anomaly Detection in multivariate Time Series Data

The enormous amount of data generated can be exploited using state-of-the-art AI algorithms to drive business decisions. However, a significant drawback of existing approaches is that the algorithms require a considerable amount of human effort and energy to prepare and annotate the data. Recent advances in deep learning and AI propose to solve this bottleneck using a paradigm referred to as 'Unsupervised' algorithms.
