  1. Semi-supervised learning for image classification

    SBC: Enelect LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Semi-supervised learning is an approach to machine learning that combines a small amount of labeled data with a large amount of unlabeled data during training. Semi-supervised learning falls between unsupervised learning (with no labeled training data) and supervised learning (with only labeled training data). Unlabeled data, when used in conjunction with a small amount of labeled data, c ...

  2. Machine Learning Enabled Electrochemical Biosensor Rapid Diagnostic Platform


    The value of diagnostic tests and tools is undisputable whether it be for healthcare, homeland security, law enforcement, or environmental impact monitoring. While traditional diagnostic testing methods have progressed immensely in recent decades, there are still non-ideal aspects of common testing methods that prevent them from being more widely accessible2. For example, they are commonly analog ...

  4. Airborne SARS-CoV-2 sterilization via high-power UV-C LED arrays

    SBC: NITRIDE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Nitride Solutions intends to determine the commercial and technical feasibility for design of UV-C LED components for disinfection of SARS-CoV-2 for commercial and residential HVAC units. We believe that UV-C LEDs are the best sterilization solution to the issue of aerosol spread in HVAC systems, replacing current mercury-based lamps. NSI will use its expertise in UV-C LEDS, optical design and ref ...
