The Augmented Reality (AR) for Maintenance and Inspection project will incorporate AR technologies to enable inspectors to examine historical and current data of an aircraft, enabling a comparison of its current state to its state during previous inspections.
Climate change is a threat to food security, with increasing challenges from pests and pathogens that destroy crops. With an initial focus on leaf rust disease in barley and wheat, this project will develop new pest and pathogen controls through the application of computational biochemistry, genomics, machine learning, and robotics.
Physicians need to balance pain management with prescribed medications; recognizing that up to 6% of surgery patients are at risk of becoming opioid abusers. This project is building a post-surgery monitoring system that will collect patient data and provide doctors with the information they need to better manage the prescription and use of opioids.
HyperTalent will connect more than 100 teachers from rural and urban school districts with educational seminars, tours of leading technology companies, and hands-on experiences. This will build awareness of the kinds of tech careers open to students, and connect school curriculums with real-world examples of the opportunities ahead.
“The opportunity to collaborate with some of the bigger partners creates outcomes beyond immediate Supercluster projects - we are already in discussions on what else we can accomplish working together, achieving greater growth at a faster pace.”
“Being part of the Supercluster will allow Finger Food to collaboratively create and export products and solutions to the world – we are confident it will accelerate the growth of our company.”
“Digital technologies are transforming our industry and contributing to improvements in every step of the mining process. As a Founding Member of the Supercluster, Teck is working collaboratively to harness the power of these digital breakthroughs to make our operations safer, more productive and more sustainable.”
What is the Digital Technology Supercluster?
The Digital Technology Supercluster is a cross-industry collaboration of diverse organizations, including some of Canada’s biggest names in healthcare, communications, natural resources, technology, and transportation.We are a proud member of a national network of five business-led innovation superclusters that is energizing the economy by fostering new partnerships. By co-investing in ambitious technology development projects, strengthening Canada’s most promising clusters and building superclusters at scale, the Innovation Supercluster Initiative from the Government of Canada is making an unparalleled commitment to this proven model for innovation.
There are two ways that your organization can join the Supercluster and start to get involved in collaborative projects designed to build world class digital technologies while growing our ecosystem and capacity as we become a world leader in the digital transformation of our economies and our society.
