ITTC Project

Machine Learning for Failure Prediction in Computer-Controlled Devices

Project Award Date: 11-01-2003


ITTC researchers will develop technology for Cigital Inc., a software quality management company. Dr. Perry Alexander will direct the ITTC research and provide design and implementation expertise.

Researchers will develop software that attempts to predict device failure by finding anomalies in data streams from the devices. They will use machine learning techniques to learn sequences of events that indicate future problematic behavior and attempt to perform maintenance prior to failure.

Mr. Edward Komp will provide design and development expertise. Mr. Komp will develop prototypes as needed, define system architectures, and perform general implementations.

For more than a decade, Cigitals Software Quality Management (SQM) solutions have helped more than 1,000 companies increase their software security and reliability.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
