  1. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  2. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...

  3. Chemically Engineered Process for Enhanced Carbon Mineralization Potential

    SBC: COMMUNITY ENERGY, INC.            Topic: G

    Globally, carbon capture and storage technologies are being developed to prevent CO2 from entering the atmosphere. One promising version of these technologies is carbon mineralization. Carbon mineralization reacts CO2 gas with minerals containing magnesium and/or calcium. When CO2 reacts with these minerals, it forms solid carbonate which may be sold for use in building materials. One plausible so ...

  6. Novel Circulating RNA-based Markers as Diagnostic Biomarkers of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD18A001

    In resource limited settings, rapid and accurate diagnosis of infections is critical for managing potential exposures to highly virulent pathogens,whether occurring from an act of bioterrorism or a natural event. This is especially important for hard to detect intracellular bacterial andalphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable and ...

  7. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terriblemorbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditionalvaccines have proven to be a huge contribution to public health, they do have some limitations especially in the cont ...
