Purdue University researchers - during the international IEDM 2016 conference the week of Dec. 5 - showcased a range of concepts and technologies that foreshadow the future of the semiconductor industry.
Davista Technologies LLC, a startup that licensed a Purdue University innovation, has developed a visual data analytics solutions technology that could provide real-time information to help first responders save lives.
Two recent Purdue graduates are developing a user-friendly, cost-effective camera and software system designed for brick and mortar retail operations. The system could allow retailers to understand more about their customers, formulate better marketing strategies for their stores, and increase sales performance.
SensorHound Inc., a Purdue-based startup co-founded by ECE alums, develops software products that could increase the reliability and security of the embedded software that drives IoT devices and thus protect them from being used in attacks, known as DDoS. The company also provides products and services that reduce developmental and operational costs for large networked systems of internet-connected devices.
Purdue University is working with Argonne National Laboratory to supercharge a "metagenomics data" system that could bring innovations in personalized medicine, better management of oil spills and other clinical and ecological applications.
ECE researchers are part of a National Science Foundation effort to enhance the public's access to a radio spectrum that will become increasingly congested due to a proliferation of smartphones and the "internet of things," spurring greater demand for wireless broadband.
Researchers have confirmed the existence of a naturally occurring exotic property in which a material becomes thicker when stretched - the opposite of most materials - a discovery that could lead to new studies into the fundamental science of nano-materials behavior.
New research in game theory shows that people are naturally predisposed to over-use “common-pool resources” such as transportation systems and fisheries even if it risks failure of the system, to the detriment of society as a whole.
