Touro College And New York College Sign MOU To Create Powerhouse For Patent And Technology Development

Touro is the Latest Institution to Enter New York College's New Applied Research Center Consortium

NEW YORK, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Touro College and University System, together with its affiliate New York Medical College, comprises one of the largest health care educational systems in the country. Touro College and New York College of Health Professions, a 30-year pioneer in holistic health care and education, today announce that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop, on a product-by-product basis, many of the cutting edge technologies that are currently part of New York College's Applied Research Center.

The products include patents recently granted that enable a small coin to expand into a bandage that turns into a cast in minutes, as well as security systems that use biometrics to sound alarms for military and security personnel. New York College also has patents pending on real-time diagnostic technologies that allow doctors to have instant access to the results of biopsies and cultures. These technologies use scopes to enlarge cells with computer graphics, feeding them to multiple databases with real-time feedback to thin film technology.

Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College, stated, "We are thrilled to partner with an institution as acclaimed as Touro College. The goals of our association with Touro are two-fold: to further develop the College's portfolio into major industries in conjunction with other major universities and corporations; and to allow the Applied Research Center to direct university research at Touro into more patented consumer and industrial products."

Dr. Alan Kadish, president and CEO of Touro College said, "We are excited about working with New York College and other esteemed universities and corporations associated with the consortium and hope to use this relationship to increase both the health and commerce of the communities we serve. Touro has incubator programs and works with New York State and other states and governments on projects to enhance the quality of both personal and economic health in the community. These projects are exciting and represent a new frontier in bringing together the strengths of several colleges and universities, as well as outside corporations, to allow the consortium to be competitive with top research and development centers around the world."

Donald Spector, Chairman of New York College, is well known as one of the most prolific inventors in the world, having opened up several billion dollar industries. Bristol-Myers Squibb, previously the Squibb Corporation, set up a separate division for his products. Spector also opened up the field of hydraulics in exercise equipment with the Bruce Jenner Exerciser, the MuscleWorker and Musclemaster. Spector has a portfolio of hundreds of patents and is highly active in computer technologies, having written the first-known patents for Location Based Advertising and the first Hyperbaric Chamber for seeds. The College also has patents from Spector to reduce contagion through the use of UV LEDs that disrupt the DNA structure of contagions in vents, specifically for cars, planes, and housing.

The new Applied Research Center Consortium expects to make announcements shortly about its ventures with other universities, corporations and well-known individuals.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
