Professor Usman Khan Receives Funding from the NRC-IRAP for Two Research Projects

Innovation York announces the successful recipients of the third round of the National Research Council Canada’s Industry Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) Artificial Intelligence Industry Partnership Fund.

Innovation York and NRC-IRAP collaborated to develop and launch this funding program, which encourages industry-driven research projects in artificial intelligence, deep learning and machine learning. Canadian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that have partnered with York University faculty members were encouraged to apply for the grant, which awards $12,000 to support each successful research project.

Professor Usman Khan from the Department of Civil Engineering was selected to receive funding for two of his research projects:

  • Creating an automated calibration process for a cloud-based sewer capacity management system using existing rainfall and flow monitoring data in partnership with Civica Infrastructure
  • Mine stability improvements using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and existing data from sensors leading to increased usage and predictive capability in partnership with Mine Design Engineering
