Coronary heart disease is the single most common cause of death before the age of 65 in the UK and affects nearly half the population over the age of 40. The accurate detection of heart problems is therefore of prime importance.
Noise can be a problem in busy intensive care units. OCC has helped to develop a pilot noise awareness system for clinical staff.
OCC, with its strong maths and physics background and experience of programming supercomputers, was a natural fit to help develop the modelling software that could take the concept reactor from a test rig in a laboratory towards fusion.
ESPRC Impact Acceleration funding awarded to Oxford University enabled their researchers to begin commercialisation of software for predicting adverse heart complications in early stage drug candidates. They turned to OCC to transform their early stage software into a package for today’s user expectations.
One of the most significant sources of Big Data is social media: a continuous feed of unstructured, unvalidated, near real-time information about what people are experiencing. As part of the European EmerGent project., OCC is developing a cloud-based emergency management service to gather and mine social media.
