Platform for predicting a compound’s cardioactivity

The invention is a platform that combines a screening system and machine learning algorithms to investigate and report the cardio-activity related information of a certain compound.

Such information is crucial for the drug development process, especially for evidence based decisions.

A simple, accurate and inexpensive device pointing system using head tilt gesturing

Current device pointing systems, which control the movement of cursors on screens, suffer from several drawbacks which often preclude their use by individuals with special needs or medical conditions. This UCI invention describes a simple, inexpensive “head mouse” that, in combination with proprietary software, tracks the position of the head relative to the body, allowing for full control of a pointing device.

Researchers at UCLA have developed a novel mathematical theorem to revolutionize the training of large-scale artificial neural networks (ANN).

Query-Based Graph Data Reduction

The invention is a set of algorithms that can reduce the amount of graph data for specific applications, based on the type of queries that the graph data needs to answer. Reducing graph data size for certain applications allows them to be run efficiently on devices with limited storage and/or bandwidth.

GPS-Based Miniature Oceanographic Wave Measuring Buoy System

Oceanic monitoring helps coastal communities, economies, and ecosystems thrive. The coastlines and open oceans prove to be very important to maritime countries for recreation, mineral and energy exploitation, shipping, weather forecasting and national security. As solar power, GPS, and telecomm improvements have been made, directional wave buoys have emerged and set the standard in wave monitoring. Non-directional and directional wave measurements are of high interest to users because of the importance of wave monitoring for successful marine operations. Wave data and climatological information derived from the data are also used for a variety of engineering and scientific applications.

This is a fast, fully automated method to accurately model a patient’s left heart ventricle via machine learning algorithms.

ParBreZo - a rapid, high-resolution flood inundation modeling software

By mid-century, flooding is predicted to cause annual losses of $52 billion. The ParBreZo v.8.0 software developed at UCI can predict flood inundation at better than 30 feet resolution, and within a short span of time. These predictions will help plan and prepare for future floods, respond intelligently to on-going flooding, and learn from past floods.
