A project led by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Cooke Seafood and Dalhousie is using sophisticated sensors to convert a mussel's distinctive behaviour when exposed to stressors into an early detector of toxic algae. This is one of the first projects DeepSense, hosted in the Faculty, will work on.
The Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Digital Government was on campus Monday to officially launch DeepSense, a unique research partnership between industry, academia and government that will help companies solve ocean-related data challenges.
Dalhousie welcomes four new Canada Research Chairs studying topics such as pain, Indigenous health, data visualization, and addictions and mental health. Two existing chairs (in advanced batteries and psychiatry) have also been renewed.
The award was granted to Axel J. Soto, Vlado Keselj, and Evangelos Milios (Dalhousie University, Canada) and Ryan Kiros (University of Toronto, Canada) for their article "Exploratory Visual Analysis and Interactive Pattern Extraction From Semi-Structured Data"
