Intelligent Profiling of Blood Donors in Ireland

Joanna Kossakowska one of the researcher at IMaR is currently researching methods for improving efficiency of blood collection in Ireland. The main goal of the study is to examine currently available techniques for intelligent profiling of blood donors. This involves examination and identification of most suitable data mining techniques and machine learning algorithms which will be applied on individuals’ historical data in order to predict their future blood donation patterns. This research can be run thanks to the support and collaboration from Irish Blood Transfusion Services. However, further help from volunteers is needed, as a special survey has been developed to provide data for the research. If you would like to know more about the project and participate in the study by filling out the survey please visit: http://blood-donors-research.imar.ie/

Technology Gateway Industry Show Case May 18th 2015 at Silver Springs Hotel Cork Starting at 9.30am with Registration & Coffee Enterprise Ireland, in partnership with the Institutes of Technology, has established a nationwide network of 12 Technology Gateways which deliver technology solutions for Irish industry close to their market needs. The Gateways have a proven track record of working with industry and since 2008 along with their predecessors the AREs have completed >1,200 innovation based industry projects with over 600 Irish based companies. At IMaR, I.T. Tralee, we engage with industry across Ireland to increase competitiveness in the area of Intelligent Mechatronics and RFID. We encourage you to talk with us so we can provide the best possible solution to meet your industrial needs. A number of service we provide include: Intelligent Mechatronics:
  • System and Equipment Development
  • Mechanical Design and Prototyping
  • Analog and Digital Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Design
  • Electronic Prototyping Design
RFID:
  • RFID strategies
  • Data Analytics
  • Software Development
  • Artificial Intelligence
This industry showcase event is an opportunity for companies to network and discover how the 12 Technology Gateways can start your company on its innovation journey. Technical demonstrations will take place on the day from each Gateway. Industrial partners will also attend to present and provide information on their collaborative projects with specific gateways. Enterprise Ireland will provide information on available Innovation Supports to assist companies in research and development of a high impact collaborative projects.

Kerry Technology User Group

Members of the IMaR team gave a short presentation at the Kerry Technology User Group meeting on Tuesday evening which was focusing on the topic of the Internet of Things. While it is alway good to get the word out about the current work and research projects within the centre, it was also a great opportunity to hear presentations from and have the opportunity to meet others currently working and studying in this area.
Kerry Technology User Group a group that meets every month to discuss all things technology. Our members are a mix of staff and students from the Institute of Technology, Tralee and individuals from the software industry.
The group have recently set up a new Meetup group with which you can sign up for updates on future events or suggest/propose future topics.
