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.
