Researchers share results of their Qatar National Research Fund projects

Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) hosted the third in the series of Qatar Foundation Research & Development (QF R&D) Research Outcomes Seminars (ROS), which highlighted innovative research projects in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

The ROS are a QF R&D initiative designed to provide researchers with a public platform to share the results of their QNRF-funded cutting-edge research projects.

Sharing his thoughts on the event, QNRF Executive Director, Dr Abdul Sattar Al-Taie said: “Through ROS we want to spread knowledge about the excellent research taking place in Qatar and demonstrate to  stakeholders from various sectors and the public at large how research funded by QNRF will benefit communities in Qatar and globally.”

Dr Ali Jaoua, Professor from the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Qatar University, presented his innovative text mining platform, comprising a set of tools designed to extract and analyse information pertaining to online financial data in Arabic and English and adaptable to several other languages. Decision-makers can then be alerted to any newsworthy developments that are identified.

Dr Daniele Trinchero, professor and Director of iXem Labs Foundation at Politecnico di Torino, Italy, and Dr Abdullah Kadri, Senior R&D Expert from Qatar Mobility Innovations Center (QMIC), presented an innovative solution to monitor underground civil infrastructures for fluid transportation and distribution.

The researchers’ technology uses microwave wireless sensors that can flow inside pipes to determine the presence of existing or potential leakages by monitoring variations in noise levels produced by fluid flowing in the pipe.

Director of Kindi Lab for Computing Research at  Qatar University, Dr Qutaibah Malluhi, presented his team’s research about managing data in cloud computing to protect the privacy of individuals and ensure that sensitive information is known only to the user.

Dr Amr Mohamed, Assistant Professor from the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Qatar University, spoke about his team’s development of energy-efficient wireless body sensor networks. These wireless computing systems based on wearable sensors can be adapted for use in healthcare and biomedical research.

The Program Manager for ICT at QNRF, Dr Munir Tag, said: “The projects presented today demonstrate Qatar’s capability to produce high calibre ICT research. With continued hard work, I expect many more projects to deliver remarkable results across ICT and other research areas.”
