Featured Application: iNotify
iNotify is a versatile multipurpose cloud-based AI platform capable of real-time generation and delivery of intelligence from video, audio, and text. Designed by University of Texas at Dallas student Ashlesha Nesarikar, the iNotify app started out as a tool for identifying weapons on a security video feed, and for monitoring high-level threat situations to improve emergency response. The app has grown, however, into a full-fledged platform that can be applied to other scenarios beyond weapons identification.

The Corridor to Innovation.
You’ve heard of Silicon Valley, but do you know about the Telecom Corridor? Stretching 6.5 miles along U.S. Route 75 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, this technology hub is home to some of the biggest tech companies in the world. By providing a creative space for innovation to blossom and thrive, it’s no wonder Richardson, Texas working with US Ignite has become a breeding ground for next-gen application creation.
The Telecom Corridor is the perfect location for eager, forward-thinking students from the University of Texas at Dallas to innovate and execute their tech dreams. The school’s determination to be at the forefront of innovation and technology can be understood through their partnership with the Richardson Economic Development Partnership (REDP). Together, the two organizations plan to create two next-gen applications that focus on industrial cloud robotics across software-defined networks and timely health indicators using remote sensing and innovation.
With the Telecom Corridor right next door, it makes sense that the passion behind these projects is ingrained in UT Dallas students and the surrounding community. The dynamic collaboration between students, researchers, and innovators support the development of highly responsive, big data applications to help support local institutions.
UT Dallas houses a Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) rack, giving researchers, businesses, and entrepreneurs access to a low-latency, ultra-fast edge network that will support highly interactive and visually immersive experiences. This isn’t just a commercial internet, this is the future.
Ground Level Impact: LEARN
Tag-teaming the effort to connect the community to the Texas-based LEARN network is Donald A. Hicks, Ph.D., Special Assistant, Office of The President of UT-Dallas and Professor, Political Economy/Public Policy and Michael Skelton (pictured above), Director, Richardson Economic Development Partnership within the Mayor’s Office of International Business. LEARN connects 41 private and public institutions of higher education, community colleges, the National Weather Service, and K-12 public schools with over 600 affiliated organizations on a high performance optical network service. With Internet like that, you can bet on seeing next-gen application ideas emerge from this area.
