Developed Web-application (as grant's or collaboration's output)

MyNeuroDB (http://myneurodb.cs.usm.my/)
A collaboration with Prof Dato' Jafri Malin Abdullah from Jabatan Neurosains, Pusat Pengajian Sains Perubatan under Brain and Behavior Cluster
A data-sharing repository on HUSM historical clinical data archive of neuroimaging records. To apply for data from this repository, a researcher will need ethical clearance from JEPEM. The repository system is ready but data entry is still ongoing. The development project is entering phase two where more people are involved in analytics and visualization platform development.

Drug Herb Interaction System (http://drugherbsinteraction.cs.usm.my/#/home)
A collaboration with Assoc Prof Dr. Tan Mei Lan from the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences for SMART FUND grant.
A web and mobile application meant for the public and also researchers. Public: to query (via mobile app) on possible interactions for the medicine and herbs they took to the pharmacist (cum researcher). Researcher: This system act as a platform for them to annotate the focused-crawled literature on the interactions discussed in the article. The visualization is currently being improved after the final presentation to MOSTI.

Water Quality Monitoring System and Dashboard (http://waterdash.cs.usm.my/)
A web and mobile application for water quality monitoring connected to low-cost sensors placed in marine aquaculture platforms (seawater fish farms). The setup is robust in which it can be used in any water environment. At the moment, it is equipped with prediction using the Long Short-Term Memory algorithm for algae growth. This work is now being adapted into the Gamat breeding use case and we are also working on interfacing our system to other commercialized sensors (directly or by acquiring data from their server). This work is supported by TRGS research grants. More details can be found in our publications and presentations: Publication1, Publication2, Publication3, Presentation
