  • By predicting seizure before its onset, doctors could act preventively with actions that include stimulation treatment recently proposed. To facilitate that, scientists at Rice University and the University of Texas Health Science Center will work together to develop algorithms that will optimize the development of an implantable device. The device will deliver low-frequency electrical...
  • Imagine a gym that helps you keep track of your exercise, its intensity, its correctness and your vitals while you focus on exercise. Automatically. Accurately. Even without a wearable. Every time. Welcome to the Digital Gym. We are developing technologies that will convert any gym into the digital gym of the future. Digital Gym is a project in the world’s first Quantified Communities (QC)...
  • The game of golf has existed in its modern form since the 15th century…and one club stands alone: the putter. About half of the shots in golf are made with the putter. Putting is not easy – the putter swings slowly, and with a very light force. It is incredibly challenging and frustrating. Even professional golfers often miss short putts. The DISSECT team aims to provide feedback to the golfer,...
  • Recent advances in VLSI technology are enabling fast computing systems with tens and hundreds of processing units. These range from field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) to graphics processing units (GPU) to multi-core processors, such as the Intel Xeon Phi. These parallel systems can be used to accelerate applications in wireless communications, image processing, and data science. Current...
