Computer scientists with Dalhousie's DeepSense team are helping make marine environmental monitoring for tidal-energy projects easier, more reliable and more effective by creating custom applications for use by researchers and developers.
Using AI to understand ocean trends, plotting breakthroughs in solar-energy storage, and slashing exposures to cancer-causing substances: Learn more about some of the exceptional Dal-led projects to receive funding this week from the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
New research from Dalhousie is using artificial intelligence to analyze the public emotions expressed through millions of tweets across the globe and identify trends that could make a significant impact in this area.
Researchers at Dalhousie and ocean data analytics innovation environment DeepSense have developed a machine learning method for predicting wind speed and wave height measurement — research with direct impact on managing safety in the Halifax Harbour.
New smartphone apps being developed could help track and trace where people with the virus have been and alert others who might be at risk of coming into contact with it. But Stan Matwin, director of Dal's Institute for Big Data Analytics, says decision-makers must grapple with how to make these programs both effective and respectful of people’s privacy.
