Sustainable Smart Computing

Cloud Computing is a form of distributed computing over a network based on different service models: Infrastructure as a service (Iaas), Platform as a service (PaaS) and Software as a service (Saas) and Deployment models such as: Private cloud, Public Cloud, Community Cloud and Hybrid Cloud. Under the Canada Chair (CRC) many projects cover this field for example by developing a framework of green smart eco-cloud platform capable of managing a converged infrastructure and hosting multiple classes of applications. Also GreenStar Network (GSN) project integrates data center networks powered entirely by renewable energy, the architecture include cloud facilities and an IaaS architecture.

Computational Pattern Analysis

Document image processing understanding Processing of huge volumes of unprocessed, handwritten and historical documents is a critical challenge in front of many heritage and cultural institutes and organizations. Our main objective in the field of document image processing and understanding is development and implementation of novel models and techniques which may help in generating, enhancing, presenting and understanding of handwritten document images. Direct involvement of scholars and researchers from various institutes and universities, such as McGill University, allowed us to choose goal-oriented directions for our research and development. Currently, our focus is on providing a complete understanding system which consists of imaging, pre-processing/enhancement, word-spotting, transliteration and data mining units in an user-friendly collaborative and virtual environment.
