PRECISE Seminar: About PCI
March 28, 2018

The Penn Center for Innovation (PCI) is Penn’s one-stop-shop for commercialization and entrepreneurship. PCI's staff are here to help researchers navigate the fields of intellectual property, startup companies, and corporate partnerships. PCI can help you if you want to learn how to launch a startup based on your research, understand if your new idea is patentable, or connect with corporate partners for research collaborations. Ryan Mendoza and Ryne DuBose from PCI will be discussing these topics and answering questions about PCI and the technology commercialization process.

PRECISE Seminar: The Use of Mobile Health Technology in Clinical Research
March 8, 2018

The ability to efficiently develop new medicines for patients with unmet needs is limited by the current model for clinical development.  Fundamentally, the conduct of clinical trial has not changed significantly over the last few decades.  Emerging digital and mobile health technologies have the potential to improve the conduct of clinical trials, allowing for more efficient development of new medicines for patients.  Seeking patients’ input into the design and conduct of clinical trials is now possible via mobile devices, sensors and remote technologies that can enhance recruitment,…

GRASP-PRECISE Special Seminar: The Future of Anomaly Detection
February 1, 2018

Anomaly detection is the process of identifying abnormal events. The proper identification of anomalies can be helpful for almost any domain and is critical in achieving level 4 and 5 autonomy for self-driving cars. However, classical anomaly detection is principally rooted in point-based anomalies, those anomalies that occur at a specific point, which are only a small subset of the more general range-based anomalies that occur in real-world systems.

In this talk, we will discuss necessary advances in anomaly detection to make it relevant in today’s range-based systems. We will…

PRECISE Seminar: Electricity System Planning with Distributed Energy Resources - New Methods for an Evolving Power System
January 31, 2018

Distributed energy resources (DERs), including distributed generation, storage, and demand response, are expanding and decentralizing options for the provision of electricity services. These novel resources compete with one another as well as conventional generation resources and network assets to provide a limited range of important electricity services. Distributed resources derive much of their comparative advantage from the ability to be located in areas of the electrical grid that maximize the “locational value” delivered by these resources. Locational value…
