METHODS AND COMPOSITIONS FOR SCREENING AND TREATING DEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS

Hospital for Sick Children, POPULATION DIAGNOSTICS

This document provides methods and materials related to genetic variations of developmental disorders. For example, this document provides methods for using such genetic variations to assess susceptibility of developing Autism Spectrum Disorder.

SYSTEM, METHODS AND NODES FOR PROVIDING ZONE-BASED SERVICES BASED ON PAIRINGS BETWEEN COMPATIBLE PROFILES

Laval University

Disclosed methods and systems allow provision of zone-based services to users. Both zones and users have their own profiles. A detection system allows determining when users enter or leave a zone. A pairing is calculated between compatible elements of zone profiles, or between compatible elements of the user profiles. Delivery of zone-based services may conditionally be granted according to a level of the pairing. Pairings may also be established between users or between zones. A server may...

EMERGENCY DETECTION AND RESPONSE SYSTEM AND METHOD

University Health Network

Disclosed herein are automated emergency detection and response systems and methods, in accordance with different embodiments of the invention. In some embodiments, a system is provided for detecting and responding to a potential emergency event occurring in respect of a user in or near a designated area. The system comprises one or more sensors disposed in or near the area and a controller operatively coupled to the one or more sensors to receive sensor data therefrom indicative of the...

JOINT COMMUNICATION AND ELECTROMAGNETIC OPTIMIZATION OF A MULTIPLE-INPUT MULTIPLE-OUTPUT ULTRA WIDEBAND BASE STATION ANTENNA

University of New Brunswick

A multi-input and multi-output multi-user antenna array system comprising an asymmetric array of antennas optimized for multi-user performance and a method for generating a configuration of elements for a multi-input and multi-output multi--user antenna array system comprising the steps of selecting elements from the group consisting of at least two antennas and, at least one antenna and at least one electromagnetic signal modifying element; and applying a genetic algorithm to the antennas...

SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL INTERACTION ANALYSIS IN BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING

University of Toronto

Described herein are systems and methods for building information modeling. An embodiment of the method includes: receiving a BIM; and transforming the BIM to flatten solid-volume geometry for space bounding elements into thin-walled boundaries of the thermal zones by: determining wall volumes from the BIM; collapsing the wall volumes to provide single surface walls; determining wall center surfaces and end points from the single surface walls; aligning, and trimming or extending, the single...

IN-EAR EEG DEVICE AND BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACES

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

An in-ear EEG device is provided. The in-ear EEG device comprises an over-ear support arm coupled to an enclosure, and an earpiece coupled to the enclosure. The enclosure has a power switch, an analog output, a power input, and a processor. The processor is configured to receive EEG data and generate output data for the analog output. The earpiece collects the EEG data and transmits the EEG data to the processor.

SYSTEM, METHOD AND COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR DYNAMIC GENERATION OF A RADIO MAP

University of Toronto

Embodiments described herein provide a system, method and computer program for dynamic radio map generation, which may be used for indoor positioning of one or more mobile devices based on received signal strength (RSS) in some examples. In an aspect, a dynamic scheme may be used to learn the RSS radio map from only a small number of fingerprint samples. Compressive sensing may be applied to build the graph structure and calculate the graph weight in some embodiments. Once the RSS radio map...

SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ONLINE ANALYSIS OF STAKEHOLDERS

University of Toronto

Described herein are systems and methods for stakeholder analysis, and particularly for infrastructure project stakeholder analysis. An analysis engine models stakeholder data, such as social media comments, in the form of subject-sentiment dyads. A combination of the influence level of the person that generated the sentiment, the subject, and sentiment of the sentiment data provide a numerical model of the social media data as a data-point in the semantic space of the analysis. An...

EFFICIENT FETAL-MATERNAL ECG SIGNAL SEPARATION FROM TWO MATERNAL ABDOMINAL LEADS VIA DIFFUSION-BASED CHANNEL SELECTION

University of Toronto, University of Washington

In some embodiments, techniques capable of obtaining high-quality fetal ECG (fECG) information using as few as two composite (maternal and fetal) maternal abdominal ECG (aECG) signals to derive the fetal ECG information are provided. In some embodiments, maternal ECG information and fetal ECG information are both obtained from the aECG signals, and are either presented or stored. The techniques may use novel proposed diffusion-based channel selection criteria. To validate the proposed...

DEVICE, SYSTEM AND PROCESS FOR ROBOTIC RADIOBIOLOGY

University Health Network

A high throughput automated assay platform for temporal image processing of cell growth and colony formation before and after radiation therapy treatments. The platform is designed to compute and monitor a therapeutic protocol by measuring sensitivity of cell growth to treatment based on a radiation therapy protocol. The platform is designed to detect relationships between the temporal images being tracked to colony formation behaviour.
