  • Optimization of the fiber production process

    Kruger aims to improve the fiber strength consistency by developing new approaches to reduce the negative impact on inconsistent recycled fiber quality caused by the variability of the fiber at the beginning of the process and understand how we can act effectively to optimize output. This will be followed by better predicting the output quality of the fiber to minimize production cost. This project will focus on implementing advanced predictive & prescriptive analytics supported by Machine Learning (ML), to predict and calibrate fiber quality to provide better quality control.

  • Machine learning driven electronic media detection solution

    The scope of this project is to develop a machine learning driven electronic media detection algorithm. This detection solution will be integrated with our existing x-ray scanner technology for customers that are seeking automated detection assistance in order to protect ingress and egress of data bearing devices into / out of their facilities, which could pose a risk to data security. By automatically identifying and alerting the scanner operator of the potential presence of these devices, the tool reduces the dependence upon visual detection. This task can be incredibly challenging, particularly for smaller media devices (e.g. SD card, USB sticks, etc.).

For reference, pre-testing is a series of measurements taken by a technician, often using diagnostic equipment. These measurements are then transferred to the optometrist for interpretation prior to, during or after the patient appointment.

    Patates Dolbec wants to implement artificial intelligence in its potato sorting process. Using a modern vision algorithm based on deep neural networks and the installation of sensors and cameras, we want to detect defects directly on the production line. The sorting of these defects, 30% of which escape the upstream industrial sorting solution (NewTech), is currently done by visual inspection by two workers. In addition to detecting defects, the workers must manually remove the potatoes, a task that is imprecise (30% of rejects are unnecessary) and promotes injuries due to repetitive movements.

  • Open platform to facilitate drug discovery research in both academic and industry settings

    As an early step in drug discovery, hit identification involves testing molecules in a cellular or biochemical model of disease. Molecules that show early signs of efficacy in these models (e.g. a molecule that kills cancer cells) are then advanced for further evaluation as drug candidates. However, much of this testing is done by screening large chemical libraries in a randomized fashion, with scientists having limited ability to know a priori whether the molecules they decide to evaluate are likely to be efficacious. We therefore wish to develop an AI-enabled platform for molecular search. We wish to allow scientists to select molecules likely to be efficacious in their specific disease model, in a fully automated fashion, to help save time and costs in drug discovery research.
