HPS Biotech Inc.

HPS Biotech has launched a new product, BIOBOOST to be used by fermenters. Note not all distillers do fermentation as some acquire alcohol to then distill it to their desire percentage as per the market addressed. We do not produce alcohol or hand sanitizers and our product is not incorporated into hand sanitizers. It is used in the production of the main ingredient in hand sanitizers, ethyl alcohol or ethanol. Our BIOBOOST product, when used at the start of fermentation during alcohol production, increases the production of alcohol (ethanol or ethyl alcohol) by alcohol producers by 25% per batch with no other change required to the work or materials of the fermenter. This increase occurs whether it is alcohol intended for consumption (food grade), for industrial, pharmaceutical or cosmetic purposes. At the same time, our product shortens the fermentation time by 25%. This frees up the fermentation equipment if the fermenting company wishes to increase its production even more because it will have more batches of supplements in the same period, in addition to having more alcohol in each batch.

A product that increases the production and capacity of alcohol for use in hand sanitizer.

Perform data collection and analytics to provide early indicators of looming problems, before their exponential growth makes them unmanageable. When businesses have to deal with consequent results of the pandemic, usually in the form of increased or decreased customer volume, their ability to respond in a timely way to the health system is affected. The issue we will address is the difficulty in detecting and reacting to fast changes in customer demand and other behaviour, within the health system itself and its ecosystem. We will leverage a product called ccRobot provided by Korah Limited, which provides a chat bot with extensive back end capabilities for data analysis and management reporting - chat bot system that faces customers is a source of early indicators of changes in their needs and behaviour.

We seek partners who would benefit from analysis that demonstrates with quantified confidence trends resulting from the pandemic's continuing impact. The nature of this information would be early warnings of such events as supply constraints, public sentiment, extended reply or supply times that interfere with the normal pace of business operations.

Darwin AI

DarwinAI's GenSynth platform uses AI itself to observe a neural network as it is being trained and then generates a number of new and highly optimized versions of said network.

In collaboration with University of Waterloo, the solution is a diagnostic system using Artificial Intelligence to detect COVID-19 from chest X-Ray images, ready for deployment. While it can be difficult for a radiologist to discern COVID-19 from other conditions, AI can help to increase specificity and sensitivity of X-Rays to aid radiologists in decision making. The deep learning platform will enable clinicians to not only screen more rapidly, but more importantly be able to perform better risk stratification, which is critical for patient population management and individualized care based on risk level. This will have significant benefits to improving the supply chain for hospitals in many ways.

Operationalizing the system involves two primary activities: 1) improving system performance as data is collected and clinicians provide nuanced feedback 2) developing the tool's UI and supporting infrastructure so the platform is accessible to clinicians and radiologists in an intuitive and useful manner. This requires: 1) a project manager to run the initiative by means of development planning and logistical coordination with clinical and industrial partners on data collection, 2) a deep learning engineer, to focus on improving the machine learning models that undergird the system, 3) a full-stack engineer, to develop the system's underlying software, 4) a designer, to develop an clean and powerful user interface for radiologists and clinicians.

RideShark Corporation

RideShark is a market leading multimodal Mobility as a Service (MaaS) company. RideShark provides a custom branded unified mobility platform to public and private sector customers around the world. RideShark helps people get to their destination by combing all options for real-time trip planning. An integrated app combines all travel options, rideshare payments and supporting services. We empower people to make sustainable travel choices. We provide an AI-powered mobility solution with proven value in reducing congestion, growing ridership, and increasing efficiency and transportation resource utilization - ultimately shifting car drivers to consume public and shared mobility.

RideShark's initiative is to launch a Canada-wide trip tracking platform, enabling users to report on how they are travelling to work or personal trips. The tracking of telework, transit trips, carpooling, cycling/walking or drive alone would better help to understand how people are moving during Covid-19. A self-reported indicator of Covid-19 status (e.g. self-isolation, 14-day quarantine, Covid-19 suspected, Covid-10 confirmed, etc.) would assist with disease tracking and research.

To launch this initiative, RideShark needs:

  • Medical collaborator to assist with COVID-19 status definitions and national outreach
  • Private sector partner to co-brand the national tracking platform and assist with national outreach
  • Funding

Raven AI

Raven has developed the first Intelligent Awareness Platform (IAP) used by pharmaceutical, medical devices, and other leading manufacturing companies. The platform supports improvement efforts and provides real-time feedback using proprietary mobile hardware, cloud-based analytics and AI. The system can be quickly and easily installed and made operational, using the existing wifi network and the cloud. Raven recently launched IAP for Healthcare and is serving hospitals in the Maritimes helping them improve safety and efficiency through improved situational awareness. Raven was founded in 2013 and is based in Ottawa, Ontario.

Raven's Intelligent Awareness Platform (IAP) has been developed to protect healthcare workers from COVID-19 infection by increasing situational awareness and improving the ability to follow complex safety protocols and required precautions. Current best practices rely on printed documents, ad-hoc communication between hospital staff and whiteboards. Raven's IAP improves real-time knowledge of activity and risk-state in operating rooms (OR) helping hospital staff choose appropriate PPE and safety precautions to protect themselves from infection from aerosolized virus particles. Aerosolized virus particles may pose the most significant threat to OR staff and patients and, according to one recent study, can remain present in the air for up to three hours. Both aerosolized and droplet particles are formed during many common operating room procedures; most notably during intubations (inserting a breathing tube), extubations, or any procedure involving manipulation of the airway. In addition to the safety benefits provided by Raven's technology for hospitals, it also can help reduce lost time helping to lower operating cost and improve the timeliness of patient care. Raven's IAP is used by numerous global manufacturers helping them improve profitability by millions per year by highlighting inefficiencies in real-time.

Raven is seeking additional hospitals in Canada as early adopters of Raven's Intelligent Awareness Platform for Healthcare. Raven is deploying this cloud-based technology at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia in partnership with the Nova Scotia Health Authority.
