Adaptive Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing System

Western University

DescriptionA robust adaptive transmission technique is being developed at The University of Western Ontario to address these challenges.Our proposed adaptive orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system offers a substantial improvement in spectrum efficiency and flexibility over conventional wireless communication systems. In this system, precoded cyclic prefix (PCP) provides a mechanism of sensing characteristics for spectrum sharing and eliminates the preambles and handshaking...

EEG BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE PLATFORM AND PROCESS FOR DETECTION OF CHANGES TO MENTAL STATE

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

A system for a brain-computer interface (BCI) is provided. The system comprises an output unit configured to trigger a series of mental tasks for the patient, a device having a plurality of electrodes to continuously capture real-time raw electroencephalography (EEG) data from a patient, a server, and a display device to display and update an interface with visual elements based on issued control commands from the server. The server has an acquisition unit configured to receive the electrode...

BRAIN-COMPUTER INTERFACE PLATFORM AND PROCESS FOR CLASSIFICATION OF COVERT SPEECH

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

A device and method are provided for real-time classification of covert speech. The device comprises a plurality of sensors for capturing real-time bio-signal data for brain monitoring in response to mental tasks delivered to a user, and a brain computer interface with memory storing instructions to configure a processor to perform a method of real-time classification of covert speech. The method comprises capturing real-time bio-signal data for brain monitoring in response to mental tasks...

DATA VISUALIZATION PLATFORM FOR EVENT-BASED BEHAVIOR CLUSTERING

University of Toronto

A platform for processing event traces to generate clusters of journey maps for an interactive user display. The clustering can be implemented using a genetic process. The clustering can be implemented using a distance measures. Other clustering techniques can be used. The platform can use the clustering results to generate interactive dynamic visualizations with interactive selectable portions. The platform can integrate processing mining and journey maps to generate interactive dynamic...

ROUTING METHODS FOR MULTIPLE GEOGRAPHICAL ENTITIES

TECHNION RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, University of Toronto, YISSUM RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT COMPANY OF THE HEBREWUNIVERSITY OF JERUSALEM

Routing method for computing routes over uncertain geo-spatial data whereby only upon visiting the geographic entities it can be determined whether the needed service or product is actually provided and is adequate. When dealing with uncertain data, the returned route may need to go via several entities of the same type. Another routing method consists of finding an efficient and effective route from a starting point to an ending point going trough a predetermined number of objects, wherein...

PLATFORM, DEVICE AND PROCESS FOR ANNOTATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF TISSUE SPECIMENS USING CONVOLUTIONAL NEURAL NETWORK

University Health Network

Embodiments described herein provide a platform, device and process for digital pathology that enable multi-level annotation and visualization of histopathologic slides using a modular arrangement of deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs). The CNNs can be trained using pathology images (e.g., in some cases increasing the base of data by breaking larger fields of view into smaller ones) to learn features consistent with certain pathologies. The platform can use the CNNs to visually...
