Software & Algorithms


Scientists at NDSU, in collaboration with architects at RLE Holdings, Inc., have developed SpecMapper™, a plug-in that enables existing architectural software to automatically produce, update, and maintain the specification manual for a building. This saves time and money throughout a building’s life (including design, bid, construction, and post-construction facility management). SpecMapper™ is a mapping of building assembly codes (as used in Building Information Model (BIM) software products such as Revit) and specification sections (as found in the MasterSpec set of specification sections). This plug-in links building components in a BIM to appropriate specification sections, which may also include maintenance information for facilities management. The result is a streamlined workflow in a paperless environment and a reduction of errors, which result in significant time savings and reduced risk of liability.

This technology introduces a user-friendly software platform designed for the mass customization of artificial neural networks (ANNs).

This technology uses a gradient descent expert system (GDES) network to analyze patient vital sign data to prevent patient misidentification
