PROMO: Detecting frozen lumps of oil sands material is the motivation behind a new iCORE research Chair in intelligent sensing. Partners in this 4.9 million dollar collaboration are Syncrude, Matrikon Inc, NSERC, the University of Alberta and ICORE, the Informatics Circle of Research Excellence. And the scientist holding The chair is Dr. Hong Zhang.

SFM Network researcher Mark Kachmar has found a better way to use satellite Imagery which will help foresters and ecologists find islands of live trees that have survived devastating forest fires.
