In August, we submitted and received in October a National Science Foundation USIgnite Global Environment for Network Innovations GENI EAGER Grant.

Partner and Platform Evaluation

In milestone:dm-ignite-eval, we are evaluating potential partners for different components of the Dementia Caregiver Support Use Case described in greater detail on our blog item, which also links to the proposal. The main picture for the uses cases is shown below.

We've had excellent discussions with USIgnite leadership to identify potential partners for helping families coping with dementia. These include:

  • Behavioral Imaging Solutions which is developing next generation technology for store and forward video capture as well as a cloud based solution deployed for the provider (right side) of the use case in the picture below. Dr. Williams' current pilot to help families caring for Alzheimer's patients has used their current technology offering where a web cam is coupled to a laptop.
  • Juniper Networks a corporate partner in USIgnite and producer of innovative network infrastructure.
  • Mozilla Ignite a partnership of the NSF with the Mozilla Foundation to establish an open innovation challenge for developers to tackle next generation applications that will exploit high bandwidth environments. We've listed our application.

Notes from Jan 16, 2013 call

contract administrivia...

JS: Mohammed recovering from travel.

RS: competing stuff in Feb

Events, Presentations: Google, …

event at google space Feb 11 11am to 1pm

RW: hacker house... we talked with them; not clear what will happen...

RW: I talked with missed at Alzheimers disease center; I'm giving a talk in the Apr/May? timeframe. Apr 25.

Partners, Potential Collaborators

Steve reports BI MOU progress... BI expectation is that we engage later in the spring.

RW: CW, has he been in contact re next generation?

CW: Yes; ETA March.

CW: BI seemed ... HIPAA... I talked with Karen Blackwell about using an iPhone... about making sure iCloud is turned off etc.

RW: we'd like to treat the iPhone as patient equipment, not provider equipment, but I can see that from the perspective of evolving your prototype, it's part of the KUMC investigator's stuff.

CW: I talked with Shelly B... who does geriatric interdisciplinary (education?) as a potential for the simulation. As a telehealth (experience? experiment?). She's interested, but... later.

SF talked with another potential collaborator... missed it....

JS: do you know Osama Toffic sp? RW: yes. JS: Osama is interested in google fiber to move big images around. SF: it's not a fiber-to-the-home application. RW: Osama has done stuff with image exchange between radiologist and pathologist; maybe this is related. But Google doesn't have a commercial offering. SF: Google has been saying "soon" about a commercial offering. My impression was early 2013. JS: I'm copying my reply to all of you.

RW: CW, FYI, I've been talking about consulting with Gary? at Iowa about using the HERON approach in their informatics division?.

Toward Amazon cloud hosting

RW: possibly relevant: we're working toward this.


InitialThoughts and ideation regarding the development of health related projects that might exploit the google fiber infrastructure.
