Professor Aldo Faisal / Imperial College, London

Professor Aldo Faisal

Aldo Faisal is one of the few computer scientists in the EU to lead clinical trials of their own AI inventions. Dr Faisal is the Professor in AI and Neuroscience at the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. His work with Nokia and co-inventor Mahendran Subramanian has focused on non-invasive ways of measuring human movement and physiological function during sleep.

Abstract: EP 3671631 A1

An apparatus, method and computer program is described comprising: receiving depth data for a first plurality of pixels of a video image of a scene; determining depth data over time for each of a second plurality of pixels of the video image, wherein the second plurality of pixels comprises at least some of the first plurality of pixels; and processing the determined depth data of successive instances of the second plurality of pixels to generate movement data, wherein each instance of the second plurality of pixels comprises depth data of the second plurality of pixels.

Abstract: US 2020/0350924A1

A capitance-to-digital converter and an associated method and computer program product are provided that have an extended measurement range. A capitance-to-digital converter includes first and second capacitors with the second capacitor being configured to measure a change in a value. The capacitance -to- digital converter also includes first and second switches switchably connecting the first and second capacitors, respectively, to a reference voltage while the first and second switches are in a first position such that charge is stored by the first and second capacitors in response to the reference voltage. The capacitance-to-digital converter further includes a saturation detector configured to detect the charge stored by the second capacitor equalling or exceeding the charge stored by the first capacitor and, in response, causing the first and second switches to switch to a second position while continuing to measure the change in the value with the charge stored by the second capacitor.

Success story

"Over the years, I've filed dozens of patents with Nokia and had 14 granted. Long-term commercial relationships like this are very helpful as an academic inventor."

Abstract: US9602480

Systems and techniques for controlling access to data are described. Data is delivered to a repository in such a way that access to the data can be controlled, for example, by encrypting the data before delivery. The power to provide a requester with the ability to gain access to the data is divided, so that multiple entities can provide the requester with a portion of the information needed to gain access to the data. The portions of the information may be partial keys that can be assembled into a complete key. The requester can gain access to the data only if it receives all portions of the information needed to gain access to the data, and different criteria may be used to decide whether or not to provide each portion of the information to the requester.
