  4. Engineered DLC based Wear Resistant Coating For Extended Life Foil-Air Bearings

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N16AT005

    Foil/air bearings have the benefit of negligible friction and wear once sufficient airflow is obtained; however, during spin up and spin down these bearings are subject to contact with the rotating surfaces upon which they act and thus are subject to frictional losses and wear. Modern air-cycle machines (ACMs) depend on solid lubricant based coating materials such as polyimide coatings to protect ...

  10. Large-scale Entity Linking and Disambiguation with DeepDive

    SBC: CLEARCUT ANALYTICS, INC            Topic: N16AT016

    DeepDive is a system for extracting relational databases from dark data: the mass of text, tables, and images that are widely collected and stored but which cannot be exploited by standard relational tools. If the information in dark data --- scientific papers, Web classified ads, customer service notes, and so on --- were instead in a relational database, it would give analysts access to a massiv ...
