ITTC Project

An Enhanced Genetic Algorithm with Direct Manipulation of Sets for Data Mining.

Project Award Date: 08-01-2004


According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 70 million Americans currently live with a cardiovascular disease. Discovering common factors among people with heart disease will aid doctors in the early detection, and hopefully, eventual prevention of the number one killer of men and women in the United States.

ITTC researchers are developing a genetic algorithm that uses Darwinian concepts of "natural selection" and "survival of the fittest" to discover patterns within the data. They will compare the results of their results to published results that analyzed the same data sets.

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.
