The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  2. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  3. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: iReprogram, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  4. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...

  5. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  6. Transgenic Black Soldier Flies for Sustainable, Improved Nutrition

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: SB163002

    We propose to continue our project generating transgenic insect with improved nutrition for humans and livestock, building on the milestones we have reached and will continue to develop in phase I. We have already demonstrated insertion of exogenous reporter DNA into the insect, and continue to develop genetic engineering tools and techniques. We have expressed the biosynthetic pathway of interest ...

  10. Rapid Configuration of Heterogeneous Models (RaCHeM)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: A13056

    SoarTech and our partner, the University of Michigan Center for Health Communication Research, propose to apply heterogeneous modeling to health communications to provide a means to project the effect of communication strategies on target audience behavior. We will create a prototype system for Rapid Configuration of Heterogeneous Models, RaCHeM. To support the current health communications commun ...
