Watch the 4min recap video from the 2017 TKS Showcase!
Ben and Sunrose are using multi-nuclear magnetic resonance for cell differentiation to “make medical imaging better”. They have made quite a bit of progress and have received over $300,000 in free software to simulate their findings.
Jay is a young Solar energy expert and wants to share how in the next few years it will make a lot of financial sense for Canada to adopt Solar on a mass scale. He can help you save money by installing solar in your home, reach out!
13 year old Natalie was looking into anti-aging on a genetic level. She believes that we may be able to slow aging by combining telomere and free radical theories.
Sabarish breaks down the Microsoft Hololens into its software and hardware components and explains why this will be game changing. He also talks about real world applications and the future of A/R.
Erica uses cryptocurrency to explain how transactions are kept safe and secure using fundamental encryption principles. She then theorizes how we can use similar a-symmetric keys to protect identities.
As a self-taught drone pilot, Gene identified a way to use existing AR technology to significantly improve the performance and safety of drones. He’s currently using and SDK to make this happen.
Ben is confident that wireless energy transfer will change how we live in as fast as 5 years. Using radio frequencies, we will now be able to power medical devices, collect new data to disrupt industries, and provide a more convenient way to stay connected.
After explaining how a revolutionary gene editing technique called CRISPR-cas9 works, Ananya describes how with CRIPSR it may be possible to remove the gene that may lead to Alzheimer's.
During TKS last year there was a massive DDOS attack that caused security vulnerabilities through IoT devices. Madhu took it upon herself to create software that will detect security vulnerabilities in IoT devices and provide remedy recommendations so we will never have to face a threat like that again.
Josh walks through one of the most difficult topics in the world to understand - Quantum Computing. He also discusses Quantum Error Correction Codes in detail and what that will mean for the future of this new industry.
Sarvesh explains Neural Networks as a branch of machine learning and talks about some interesting applications using this method.
There are many different hypotheses to address genetics conditions like age-related hearing loss. Alex is exploring using viral vectors to suppress or activate genes that can contribute to this condition.
Ben breaks down the budding field of Quantum Biology, which uses sub-atomic particles in effort to explain creation, photosynthesis, consciousness, instinct and more.
Denesh discovered that liquid biopsies are a great tool for detecting cancer, albeit not at its early stages. He’s hypothesized a way to prevent macrophages from consuming floating cancers cells and leave them in the blood stream for early detection.
After the discovery of CRISPR-cas9 there has been a proliferation of genomic startups and large companies experiencing rampant growth. Kevin walks you through how to potentially capitalize on these opportunities from an investor standpoint.
Gaurav designed and built an online ecommerce store called "abocado" using shopify. During this side-project, he learned how to validate the market and use different forms of ads like Facebook and Google to promote his product and generate revenue.
As a side project, Charlie designed and built a new form of convenient personal transportation to save him time everyday.
Rishi and Ezra realized there was a better way to identify like-minded people and exchange contact information at networking events. So they solved their own problem and built Flamingo.
Simon walks through his hackathon experience building some really cool projects. His most recent experiences involve using Brain ECG IoT to make better decisions in the workplace as well as drone management software.
A deeper look into what it's like building a medical imaging company from the perspective of two 16 year olds. They talk about their journey and struggles while disrupting the mri industry.
