3 Big data security analytics techniques

KiwiNet has launched a database of New Zealand university IP with a aim to attract companies interested in developing and commercialising NZ-led research.

The database is designed to act as a shopfront for research projects and patents from across New Zealand. As KiwiNet director Andrew Turnbull puts it, the database “is designed to jumpstart the transfer of research technology to the marketplace by bringing together science and business.”

Organisations with projects listed in the first release of the database include commercialisation arms of the Universities of Otago, Waikato and Victoria, along with Lincoln University, the University of Canterbury, and others.

IT projects listed in the database include a high-yield fabrication technique for zinc oxide semiconductors, underwater communications systems, and voltage regulation technology designed to extend the battery life of mobile devices.

There’s also a number of food technologies, along with medical and green techs.

And yes, there is a “better mousetrap”: one Dr Wayne Linklater is developing a synthetic compound that resembles a pheromone to lure rodents into traps.

The full database is here. ®
