Our vision for Research & Development at Elder Research is to discover, incubate, and accelerate innovative and validated research into viable technology to solve the most challenging data problems and address real needs.
Our Vision for R&D
We draw on our collective in-house experience, extensive network of academic collaborators, and partners to identify needs and opportunities.
We establish priority for our R&D investments based on market opportunities and execute proofs-of-concept to demonstrate value of a solution pathway.
We accelerate promising proofs-of-concept to prototype through funded development (e.g., SBIR) to commercialization.
Our SBIR Successes
We have had the honor to work on many challenging and rewarding problems in R&D. A few recent results we are particularly proud of include:
NASA’s "First Ever"
Pioneering Disease Research
Awarded $2.5 Million
R&D Focus Areas
Biomarker Identification & Detection
Machine Learning based approaches to the detection of pathogens and degenerative neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s.
Modular, physics-based frameworks for predicting gas-turbine engine hot corrosion and fatigue life of critical components.
Geospatial AI & ML
Novel applications of Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques to complex data fusion and analysis of geospatial datasets for decision support and earth sciences applications (e.g., disaster relief, GCM downscaling).
Innovative applications of Machine Learning to complex fault diagnosis and detection problems in IIoT systems for critical infrastructure management.
Practical and innovative applications of Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning, and Machine Learning technology to anomaly detection using unstructured text information.
