New technology could help reduce malnutrition and improve overall health in long-term care (LTC) homes by automatically recording and tracking how much food residents consume.

The smart system, developed by engineering and health researchers at the University of Waterloo, the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging and the University Health Network (UHN), uses artificial intelligence (AI) software to analyze photos of plates of food after residents have eaten.

Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have made a key advancement in the development of technology to automatically analyze video of hockey games using artificial intelligence (AI).

The researchers combined two existing deep-learning AI techniques to identify players by their sweater numbers with 90-per-cent accuracy.

A longstanding partnership between Waterloo Engineering researchers and a leading projection company has yielded new technology for a state-of-the-art laser projector.

A patented algorithm developed at the Vision and Image Processing (VIP) Lab drives resolution enhancement in the new M 4K25 RBG projector produced by Christie, a global company with engineering headquarters in Kitchener.

A non-contact laser imaging system developed by Waterloo Engineering researchers could help doctors diagnose and treat eye diseases that cause blindness much earlier than is now possible.

The new technology is designed to detect telltale signs of major blinding diseases in retinal blood and tissue that typically go unseen until it is too late.

With current testing methods, diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma — which have no symptoms in their early stages — are usually diagnosed only after vision is irreversibly affected.

An alumnus of Waterloo Engineering who parlayed his graduate research into a startup company that is out to solve worldwide water problems has been recognized by a national innovation organization.

Jason Deglint, a co-founder of Blue Lion Labs, is one of five winners of a Mitacs Entrepreneur Award for turning research into businesses that impact the lives of Canadians.

Hamid Tizhoosh was looking for a new idea, a fresh start, when he began talking to doctors about how they do their jobs and how they might do them better. 

Six months into his consultations, with his engineering lab at the University of Waterloo reduced to a one-man show by a failed artificial intelligence (AI) startup, he heard something that almost floored him. 

A spin-off company with deep roots at Waterloo Engineering has won a second Emmy Award for its work to improve the quality and reduce the costs of video.

SSIMWAVE, based in Waterloo, was founded in 2013 by Zhou Wang, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Abdul Rehman and Kai Zeng, who both earned their doctorates at Waterloo Engineering the same year.

Five former nanotechnology engineering students at the University of Waterloo have come a long way since they came together over a shared interest in optics and frustration with the poor quality of their smartphone photographs.

Just over a year after they teamed up, their startup technology company, Scope Photonics, earned international attention with the announcement today that it is a worldwide runner-up for the 2020 James Dyson Award for student inventors.

One of the surest signs that Sam Dugan, 22, is a born entrepreneur might be this: he got the brainwave for his latest business venture, completely out of the blue, when he was on a date.

Two years later, while juggling studies as a third-year mechatronics engineering student at the University of Waterloo, he has turned that idea into a startup technology company to reduce injuries at ski resorts.
