Research and Development Projects

The AI4AI program is dedicated to broadening the use of artificial intelligence for applied innovation.

We are actively exploring collaborations worldwide to promote awareness of the latest AI techniques and technologies and their commercial applications.

Current Projects

In Q4 2017 we began developing a cloud-based, AI-driven application to optimize content summarization and resource distribution for various organizations. This work is still ongoing.

In Q3 2017 we began planning and implementing deep learning software for an early-stage startup in the St. Louis area, Optar AI. This work is still ongoing.

Past Projects

Geospatial Big Data Architecture and Engineering for Analytics

Beginning in Q4 2016 we began implementing a big data pipeline for a major biotech/agricultural services company operating in the St. Louis area.  It incorporates a variety of geospatial data sources and is cloud-based.

Implant Design to Treat Type II Diabetes

We recently developed an implant design that holds promise as another step toward the treatment of type II diabetes.  This is a disease that millions of people suffer from, and numbers only seem to be increasing.

The details of this challenge are available here.  We collaborated with a major pharmaceutical company and a research institution to implement and evaluate our design over the course of nearly a year.

Novel, Efficient Wastewater Treatment

We conceived of a non-reverse-osmosis method to efficiently remove salt, boron, and organic materials from industrially produced water at scale.

This water may be sourced from the ground through hydraulic fracturing, or produced in an industrial process.  Nonetheless, the end goal is to return the water to a condition suitable for agricultural use.

The details of this particular challenge are available here.
