Fitness related gears and Apps are gaining more and more popularity. Speedo has an App that runs on Samsung's smart watch that records the number of laps in a pool. However, it works only in free-style swimming mode and won't recognize the breaststroke motion at all. Given the various built-in sensors available on this and other watches, it is possible to develop an App that recognizes breaststroke.

What might the team need to succeed?
Develop an App that can recognize breaststroke motion. As a first step, this app can run on an iPhone/Android phone to prove the concept. Ideally, this can be customized for other (water-proof) watches.

What sort of team will it take?
A student who can develop iOS/Android apps

We can now set alarms on Amazon Echo and Google Home and wake up with a preset music. Sometimes, it'd be better if Alexa/Google Assistant can announce the next appointment with a user-specified keyword (e.g., leave for a meeting).

What might the team need to succeed?
Enable Alex/Google Assistant to announce appointment.

What sort of team will it take?
One or two students who know about Alexa and Google Assistant

Apps like "19 crimes" (now called Living Wine Label) use smartphones' built in cameras to recognize labels on a merchandise (or simply QR codes) and then perform an action (e.g., playing a video). I am not sure how difficult it is to develop a simple app like this from scratch, but it would be nice to have a "framework" which could make such an app development very easy by providing a library of functions that can be called by an app developer such that all the developer needs to do is to specify what input(s) to use as a trigger and what actions to perform. Here, the input could be an image of the object/label captured by a camera, keywords associated with the object, or voice input containing some keywords. The actions to perform can be as simple as playing a prerecorded youtube video or displaying prerecorded background information on the object/product.

Develop a "vision assist" solution on a mobile phone to allow the visually impaired gain a better understanding of their surroundings as they move through their environment. This solution would include: object recognition, estimate of object distance from subject, detection of collision with object, and ability to scan area in search of object. The UI for this application would need to be predominately voice commands.

Develop a "local cloud" Internet-of-Things type hub that focuses on keeping sensor and device information under the user's control. Ideally it would be able to speak preexisting IoT protocols (such as Z-wave, ZigBee, 6LowPAN, etc.) and pair with commercial IoT devices, keeping their communications local and private. User-managed gating to public IoT services (or even an in-house IoT SaaS solution) should be available for those things the user *does* want to access remotely. The door is open for developing connected devices, as well, although I would suggest that this is a separate or follow-on project.

What might the team need to succeed?
Probably a SBC platform (Pi, etc.), some IoT devices.

What sort of team will it take?
CS, CEng, possibly EE, depending on what devices they want to support and how much implementation they want to do in-house.

A contactless power monitoring solution for installation in a residential electrical system. It would use current transformers to monitor the power usage on individual residential circuits (either at the breaker panel or elsewhere) and provide the data in some standardized form for local or cloud processing. There exist commercial solutions in this space, but they are generally either a) very expensive (typically not intended for residential use), b) proprietary cloud-based solutions with limited data protection or access to raw data, or c) complicated inference-based collection (using, e.g., only the incoming service lines for detection, not individual circuits), or even all of the above.

What might the team need to succeed?
A working knowledge of power systems (including, but not limited to, basic electrical principles and AC concepts such as power factor), data collection, electronics and software design. For "product" quality design, many standards will have to be engaged, and likely conformance testing from the FCC and an entity like UL. There are almost certainly NEC/NFPA concerns as well. The key for marketing of such a device would be ease of installation (either easy for a homeowner or inexpensive to hire an electrician) and a simple interface for understanding the collected data and its implications. Good engineering and HCI will be necessary.

What sort of team will it take?
EE, ME, CEng, and CS. The basic design is mostly EE/ME, and then CEng/CS can take the collected data as far as they want.

Develop a printable identification header for exams and assignments that students can quickly and easily fill in that is also easily computer-interpreted from a scan. For example, a bubble-form interface or a Person Number entry similar to Russian postal codes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postal_codes_in_Russia), along with the software to find and read this data from a scanned assignment. Ideally the header would either be modular or generated in some flexible markup system (producing PDF, SVG, or similar, or embeddable directly in the assignment document; say, LaTeX), so that professors could adopt their own exam formats and the software could still locate and interpret the ID block. The associated software must be platform-independent and either standalone (e.g., given a scanned exam on the command line, output either a person number (perhaps with confidence) or a failure value) or an easily embedded library (a Python or Java package, for example). While "platform independence" need not be universal, it should certainly be able to be run on Linux, Windows, and macOS.

I'm a software engineer working on an event-planning app. This app essentially allows anyone to browse various events at any time in any location. These events can be small, personal events (ex: "come play board games at my house") or large-scale, highly organized events (ex: "come see Musician X perform at Venue Y, tickets cost Z dollars). These events can be free or paid, and can have enrollment capacities. With enough users, this app can serve as a marketplace for ticket sales (similar to Eventbrite or Ticketmaster).

What might the team need to succeed?
As of now, the core needs are ideation, software development, and marketing/branding. Once the app is ready to release, marketing and legal assistance will be needed.

The vision of Crowdlearning is that of a self-sustaining problem-posing and problem-solving environment, where the students of a given subject intermittently take on roles as (A) the creators of subject-focused problems; (B) evaluators of problem quality; and (C) problem solvers. The activities that the learners perform in roles (A) and (B) are consensus-driven, wherein learners create and ``vote'' in the problems that help them learn, thereby building ``banks'' of subject matter problems to use for learning and assessment.

What might the team need to succeed?
At this stage, we are looking for programmers, to take part in the development of our online Crowdlearning platform. We would also welcome talking to an interested MBA.

What sort of team will it take?
We already have a strong, active team, with specific steps going forward. We are looking to add someone who would be just as excited about the project as us - someone who would value innovation in education as something they would like to contribute with for the benefit of the entire world.

The idea is to taking automated vending machines to a further step. As a college student living off-campus, it is troublesome for people like us to get food in an affordable price. Since the price of the food ingredient is somewhat determined, the only way for us to eliminate the cost is the human resources that we put in each restaurant. I want to develop an automated vending machine that will be able to cook actual food, not the instant food, in the machine. For example, pasta, would be something to begin with. Eventually we can bring more complicated recipe to the vending machine and replace chef. Pros of food vending machine: 1.Way cheaper, as the human workers' salary is eliminated. 2.Takes lot less space since there's no need for a huge kitchen. 3.Stable outcome, people would get the taste that they expect to get since the recipes are programmed. 4.More viable in University since students lack of stable income and they're willing to try new things. 5.Eliminate the wait time since the ordering can be done with an app. CONS 1.Engineering, there will be difficulties when making the machine, but it is definitely possible overcome the difficulties. 2.People might not trust vending machines: they prefer chef made food; nonetheless, every new idea takes time for people to get adapt to it. 3. Maintenance, every machine breaks down. However, the human resource in repairing the machine will be lot less than working in the restaurant. Also a human technician can maintain multiple machines. 4.High cost in making the machine. The machine would cost a lot to make, but as people uses it more, the marginal cost will decrease significantly. 5.Monitoring for food safety. This could be fixed by security cameras

What might the team need to succeed?

Build a simple, web based application that allows for woodworkers to build isometric sketches of basic projects. The application should allow users to create an arbitrary number of "boxes" representing lumber (2x4, plywood sheets, 4x4, etc). Once they are created, the user can drag them around the screen, and attach them to one another. The program should avoid collisions (not allow the boxes to intersect) and allow for snap alignment of edges. There should be the capacity to output SVG graphics files. There are many potential enhancements for this as well, depending on team size and availability of libraries to support basic CAD operations in a web context

Develop an iPad application that allows users to simulate output from a DNA sequencer by scribbling a DNA signal shape on the iPad. The application would then convert this scribble to a well formed DNA sequence (information on how to do this is available!) and send it to a server for analysis. The project would also include making calls to a server side API that would look for the DNA sequence in a database of signals, and return a JSON object of the potential matches. The app would then show the user the potential matches for their scribble.

In parallel computing, we frequently want to visualize what is happening on different processors (for example, how communication proceeds). On the backend side, there is a tool that generates an execution trace and stores it in a log file. Then there is very poorly designed and annoying frontend tool that allows you to visualize the trace. The task would be to implement a new, completely web based, visualization tool. Once started, the tool should load a trace and create a web server, to allow visualization via web browser running on any machine. Trace data and information on the current tool are available.

A local business digital rewards program. Think punch cards at a coffee shop, but as a mobile app and cloud service. Enrollment and reward management should be easy (ideally, almost fully automated!) for both the user and the business owner. Privacy should be a central tenet, while still gathering enough information to be valuable to the business owner -- perhaps as aggregations or without PII. Business owners should be able to purchase push notifications that go out to customers fitting a particular profile (frequent reward redeemers, nearly full reward cards, etc.) or all customers enrolled with the business.

Scheduling multiple people across multiple events at a time is hard, especially when you have to consider the schedules of the people. Currently there is a framework that allows for the creation of events, inputting of schedules to use, and some functionality to schedule the people to the events. This needs a bit more to be fully usable to help with scheduling teaching assistants to recitations. Features that need to be added include the tracking of hours for each person, assigning of people to events (not just times of the events), and some user interface structuring to support scheduling over 30 people to 24 events (with up to 4 at the same time). Once these features are added, an extension to a starting out auto-scheduling feature to do the initial mapping is desired.

FlowQL is a collaborative platform that will turn layman readable queries into pure SQL syntax scripts while returning corresponding data. Companies have been investing in countless of hours and developer resources to create ad hoc reports; such development can be costly and is extremely inflexible in showcasing users the kind of data they want. If an ad-hoc query isn't built, reporting data are requested for import/export, thereby creating bottlenecks within the IT department due to developers sidestepping their current tasks. An alternative is to use a 3rd party toolings which generate charts, graphs, or a way to bind data onto a simple report, which is costly as the time is spent on design. To circumvent all of those issues, FlowQL will offer a way for anyone not in IT to create readable, reusable queries that will return the data they need without much IT intervention. Departments will use this tool as a collaborative effort to build and document their reports in such a way that knowledge transfer is minimal and the creation of complex queries is effortless.

A solution for client based business. Have you ever tried scheduling appointments outside of your outlook / google calendar? It's incredibly difficult to sync with clients to build a work week and we often find ourselves emailing back and forth, re-scheduling, altering, not knowing locations, making meetings and doing business difficult. With this solution, a client can simply click a link provided via email or SMS and see your real time block of time and the appointments you have scheduled so they can make a quick and efficient decision as to when and where they can meet you, and if they can meet at all. Such an application eliminates confusion and optimizes time spent scheduling clients. No longer do you have to share your private outlook calendar or google calendar.

I would like to develop a mobile application that makes it easy for elementary/middle school students to scan papers and post them to a network location with minimal/no teacher intervention. The simple application will use the camera on a mobile device (or a classroom scanner) to take a picture of a student’s paper (the simple app will consist of a viewer to center the image and a single button to collect the image). However, instead of simply dropping the scanned image into local memory or a standard network dropbox, I want to develop a system that identifies students based on information written at the top of each paper and then stores the image in a predefined network location for each student without teacher intervention. While this can be accomplished by having students place QR codes or ID stickers at the top of a page (or by printing papers with unique barcodes for each student), I would like to use OCR or machine learning techniques to identify a student based on what he/she writes to simplify the process for teachers. While the description above presents the core idea, I have additional ideas to expand the basic program concept that I will be happy to discuss at a future point. And, I am aware of similar software solutions in business, I have not found my applications that address the specific needs of the k-12 classroom. Thank you for considering my proposal.

What might the team need to succeed?
I am a graduate of the geography program at the University at Buffalo. I have experience working with students at the university level to develop programs of this nature. The proposed application may be released on the app store, or integrated into a larger-scale program concept that I am developing with a colleague. The program will need a mobile application to capture and process the imagery, and a server/database system for organizing and filing the scanned images.

What sort of team will it take?
The team will need programmers with experience developing mobile applications and a background/interest in OCR and Machine Learning with mobile interfaces). The team will also need programmers with back-end database/server experience and interest. In addition, I am interested in exploring hardware solutions to this problem apart from mobile devices (e.g., developing a simple low-cost scanner that could be placed in an elementary school classroom w/ very simple functionality for students).

Tesserae is a UB Classics – Linguistics web tool project to find subtle similarities in literary texts written in English, Ancient Greek, and Latin. It allows for the discovery and analysis of trends in how language is used. This project is to replicate and improve an existing display for the examination of textual similarity. The current Version 3 full-text display shows two full texts one on each side of the screen, with the parallel phrases highlighted. The first task is converting existing PHP code for this display to the Javascript React framework. The second task is augmentation to provide new, specified functionality. The new display should allow users to click on highlighted words in one text on one side of the screen and have the second text on the other side of the screen move to the respective parallel phrase(s).

What might the team need to succeed?
Github has the code for both the current Tesserae website (Version 3) (https://github.com/tesserae/tesserae) with the existing display and the revised version of the website to go live in spring 2020 (Version 5) (https://github.com/tesserae/tesserae-v5) into which the code for this project will fit. Tesserae has a development server for use by the project team.

In order to bring this idea to reality, we need people who can design an app that will prompt the user to take daily symptoms tests and design an algorithm based on predefined data which can determine the patient's likelihood of experiencing a leak. The final product will be an app compatible with a smartwatch that can also send data to medical professionals in the hospital.

What sort of team will it take?
We are looking for programmers and those interested in medicine, diagnostics, and saving lives to undertake this project. The team must have an innovative mindset and the desire to help make a difference.

Aphra SP : Smart Mirror For a few years on the side, we were building "magic mirrors" with the use of Raspberry Pi's and the use of MIT's MagicMirror software. Essentially this is a monitor behind a one way mirror showing the user their face but also various data suited to the user's needs in a form factor slightly larger than the average tablet. While doing this we came across problems and realizations. The first problem was the software was very limiting and hard for common people to understand without knowledge of basic Linux commands which in turn made the gui hard for ordinary people to use. An example would be us creating a mirror for someone in the Buffalo area but if they moved to somewhere outside the Buffalo area, they would need to go in and use Linux command line to change various items being shown on their screen representing their area. There was no plug and play. The next problem we found was the target audience. For most the mirror was liked but could only really be used by people with a technical background thus severely limiting the audience due to most not having a strong technical background. And for the final problem, we had a realization that nobody was mass manufacturing smart mirrors, there has been various demos that were just that, demos. With the realization that smart home appliances are a rapidly growing sector, we started planning. With that came solutions to our problems. First and foremost was creating an easy to use gui that would possibly be based off Android and in turn have it's own app to sell on various stores for phone compatibility. This would open the market to a wider audience that lacks coding skills due to easy accessibility. The idea is the only thing the user would have to setup is their wifi as soon as they receive the mirror which once done will automatically always have their data based off location and other factors ready with them being able to customize the user experience in an easy and limited way taking out any need for the user to know code and use through a touch screen, motion gesturing, or an app that allows control through the users phone instead of keyboard and mouse plugged into it. With that comes various applications to make the audience wider such as using AI and AR for a real time cosmetology software that would help people do their makeup and hair near perfect without having to go to a beauty shop from the comfort of their own home. Coupled with hardware behind the mirror such as cameras, various sensors, mics, audio, and lighting, this gives the user more uses for the item beyond basic data such as time and weather. The idea is to craft a quality smart mirror that can be built at a low enough cost and still be a quality product. Taking into account that the basic magic mirror uses a raspberry pi wouldn't be realistic due to price, size, and features. A custom pcb built for use of only needed accessories with most likely an arm/qual processor and at least 4gb of ddr4/5 ram to mass produce which in turn would be smaller and cheaper to mass produce than a preexisting smart board. The product would be inspired from: For looks, design, marketing, and product quality. This company had gone under due to mismanagement. https://www.instagram.com/amirohsmartmirror/ For what the software should be similar to but in real time. Panasonic only used this as a test demo and never pursued it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgQ9yqM4et4 They would come in tiers with price points listed below Bottom tier : controlled via phone app at around $250.00 Mid Tier : controlled via touch screen at around $350.00 Halo Tier : controlled via motion gesturing/hands free at around $450.00

What might the team need to succeed?
A strong background in their respective fields, drive, hunger, motivation and various types of support that can be offered through UB and other entities.

What sort of team will it take?
This will certainly need programmers, various types of engineers, financial, and possibly medical people to help build and become apart of.
