AI Deep Defect and Vulnerability Prediction

University of Waterloo

Description of the inventionSoftware defects (i.e., bugs) significantly impair software quality and dependability and cost the global economy over $300 billion dollars annually. More than 80% of software development budget is spent on quality control. There is a high demand for effective automated test and bug detection tools using AI and Machine Learning  to improve software quality and dependability.The market for Automated Test & Verification Tools is expected to grow from $3.31...

Pattern Alignment Clustering to Reveal Functionality in Biosequences - WeMine™

University of Waterloo

BackgroundWith the increased accessibility of lower cost high-throughput genome sequencing hardware, individuals will soon be able to secure personalized genome information for under $100. Similarly, this increase in sequencing efficiency will significantly enhance the productivity of basic medical and drug research efforts. Thus there is a pressing need for software that can unlock actionable information contained in this explosion of big data.Currently available biosequence software tends...

AMEE™ - Algorithmic Music Evolution Engine

Western University

DescriptionTraditionally, the focus in video game development has been on increasing the complexity and realism of video imaging to produce a life like portrayal of the action and characters. Only recently has there been interest in significantly improving the musical content in video games. AMEE™, a proprietary music generation software conceived at Western, can independently create aesthetically pleasing music for multiple applications, including video games. The music composition...

Hardware-in-the-loop for autopilots

Laval University

Description The hardware-in-the-loop system consists in connecting the autopilot to a target computer running a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) model at real time. The target computer plays the role of the UAV and the autopilot can control the model instead of the real UAV. More precisely, a simulator of the UAV, comprising the UAV model, reads the commands sent by the autopilot to the actuators, namely the elevator, the ailerons, the rudder, and the throttle. Then, the simulator traduces...

Control Design Software

University of Toronto

DescriptionA new software tool for the design of linear controllers to meet a set of pre-specified closed-loop performance criteria. This software solves the control design problem and thus simply and systematically determine a closed-loop controller to meet a set of pre-specified closed-loop performance criteria. Compared with existing techniques to design PID controllers, this approach is substantially less reliant on highly developed controller-gain tuning abilities, applicable to a wide...

“Lightweight” Security Algorithm for 4G/5G Networks

University of Waterloo

Description of the inventionAs newer fourth generation (4G) wireless telecommunication systems areintroduced, such as “LTE” (Long Term Evolution) and IEEE 802.16m (i.e.,Wi-MAX), more robust security algorithms are required to comply with theassociated 3GPP security standards. Typically the implementation of higher security cryptography methods are computationally more complex and thus have a negative impact on bandwidth efficiency, throughput and processing efficiency, storage,...

Software System for Automated Segmentation of Digitized Histological Sections for Vasculature Quantification

Western University

Short Description    Immunohistochemistry is a routine method for evaluating the distribution of antigens in microscopic tissue samples. For example, visualization of smooth muscle actin in histology is commonly used to study vascular physiology, understand disease progression and/or visualize organ development. To achieve this, the distribution of smooth muscle actin in the tissue of interest is quantified to reveal the overall number of vessels present, and/or determine...

Rapid Optimization of Dose Distribution for Radiation Treatment (FIDO)

Western University

DescriptionFast Inverse Dose Optimization (FIDO) is an algorithm and associated software that does not rely on the current “trial and error” search to find the optimal radiation beam plan for a patient, but instead solves a single algebraic procedure directly. As a result, FIDO delivers an optimal treatment plan in seconds rather than the current standard of minutes to hours (e.g. the TomoTherapy Inc. system uses 32 computers to develop a treatment plan and it can still take...

Image Processing Optimization

University of Waterloo

BackgroundMemoization is a computing optimization technique that is used to speedup computer programs by having function calls avoid repeating the calculation of results for previously-processed inputs.Traditional memoization techniques have mostly failed to deliver tangibleperformance improvement in practice due to the generality of the techniques and lack of a priori knowledge about the characteristics of the input data or algorithms.Description of the inventionUniversity of Waterloo...
