Travis Ratnam (BASc ’06. electrical engineering) remembers the first time he felt self-conscious about his grades.

In elementary school, the classroom bully went through everyone’s report cards, “trying to figure out who the dumbest kid was and concluded it was me,” he says.

Ratnam is using lessons learned from that early setback to help other children as the co-founder and CEO of Knowledgehook, a software platform that uses artificial intelligence to help teachers uncover each student’s unique learning needs.

Linda Wang quickly pivoted her work last spring to develop technology to detect COVID-19.

Wang, who will receive her master’s degree in systems design engineering this week, helped create COVID-Net, now an open-source tool designed to Linda Wang and parents at 2018 convocationscreen coronavirus cases from chest X-ray images.

The much-anticipated REEM-C recently arrived on campus and has already started an extensive training program.

The humanoid robot is described as the slightly smaller and lighter brother of TALOS, the full-size black and purple robot that was welcomed with great Katja Mombaur and REEM-Cfanfare at Engineering 7 almost two years ago.
