Newark City Government's Twitter project Enables Newark City Government to be aware of citizens interests, issues, and desires through collecting and analyzing the citizen tweets. Citizen participation and government responsiveness can enhance the citizen services and possibly transforms government policies, such as resource allocations, event organizations, and identification of "pain" points for the government. [ Research Version ]
Collaborators: CIMIC Rutgers and Newark City Government

Newark City's Data Analysis
Analyze the Crime data, Business Licenses and Vacant Plots Data to find the target areas in the City and analyze based on Neighborhoods and the types of crimes for the betterment of the society.
Collaborators: CIMIC Rutgers and Newark City Police Department

SMART-C
Smart Citizen projects monitor emergency tweets, multimedia citizen messages for Emergency Management
Collaborators: SRI International, NJ; UC Irvine, Florida International University, CIMIC Rutgers

311 Project
Citizen emergency phone calls and multimedia data Visualization for Emergency situation Awareness & Response
Collaborators: CIMIC Rutgers, UC Irvine, Floria International Univ

UICDS - Unified Incident Command and Decision Support System
Provides application to application interoperability among Emergency management systems using Service Oriented Architecture for Emergency Response Plan generation. The system automatically generates an emergency plan (emergency response plan) by identifying the relevant response agencies and resources required, based on Emergency Ontology and inference rules over the resource databases.
Collaborators: CIMIC Rutgers, ARDEC, NJ State Government

Other Research Areas

Digital Meadowlands: As one of NASA's Regional Application Centers CIMIC is involved in an environmental monitoring project from space, enabling the Hackensack Meadowlands Development Commission (HMDC) to benchmark and target environmental improvements throughout the district. The space and land- based environmental monitoring systems will address such areas as land monitoring, fire detection, urban planning. This work is sponsored by HMDC and NASA.
     
Multi layered Clinical Decision Support System. The focus of this project is to design and develop a Clinical Decision Support System that facilitates patient-oriented, time- oriented, event-oriented, and problem-oriented, type of analysis that help to conduct research studies or trend analysis. This work is being carried out in collaboration with St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center.

MERI:Meadowlands Environmental Research Institute is established to develop a better understanding of the complex environmental factors that affect the Hackensack Meadowlands ecosystem, the research and monitoring activities of MERI will focus on six interrelated themes: 1) Vegetation patterns 2) Inter-tidal and shallow sub-tidal habitats, 3) Contaminant hot-spots 4) Water quality 5) Air quality and 6) Scientific information management. These distinct themes have common investigative threads and complement one another within an environmental monitoring program that can establish baseline conditions and periodically issue an environmental "report card" for the District.
       
Methane Imaging: In collaboration with Bowling Green State Univ. and Hudson Research Inc., CIMIC will be a partner in an experiment to image and map methane plumes with high-spatial-resolution, multi-spectral thermal IR satellite data collected over a known active solid landfill. Methane is a green house gas that contributes to global warming and is the principal gas escaping from solid waste landfills. It is expected that by implementing the methane mapping objective, a new, more effective and inexpensive methane emission monitoring technology will be developed.
Security for Digital Libraries. To provide support for security of objects and to protect privacy of users accessing these objects through (1) the development of suitable access control models that can model and administer security policies specified on credentials and characteristics of users and concepts associated with the objects, and (2) the development of methodologies for ensuring copyright and copy prevention using digital watermarking technologies. In collaboration with University of Milan.
         
Universal Access. To provide flexible and highly customizable access to systems by making the multimedia DL objects intelligent enough so that they automatically manifest themselves to different users' capabilities (such as physical, linguistic, technical), expertise, preferences (such as presentation quality), and hardware and software capabilities. This research is being undertaken in collaboration with Lucent Technologies and University of Pittsburgh.
Security for Workflow Management Systems. The focus of this project is to develop models, techniques and algorithms for incorporating multilevel security into advanced application domains such as office information systems, CAD/CAM, software development and publication environment. It also investigates how Petri Nets can be used to model and analyze workflows. Sponsored by NSF and NSA.
       
Content based Image Retrieval. The aim of this research is to develop a methodology for efficient retrieval of images based on the content of image objects in terms of their color, shape, and relative positions. The contribution of this methodology is in the ability to retrieve images based on any combination of color, shape, and spatial relationships among the objects depicted in them. In collaboration with IBM Watson Research Center and NASA.
Information Extraction and Concept based Search. To extract concepts from multimedia objects for building conceptual indexing. In collaboration with Law Library of Congress.
        
Interoperability. To provide mechanisms to integrate new data sources, ingest data, and provide seamless access to heterogeneous, autonomous and distributed data sources.
A Distributed Database Approach to Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). To develop an approach to EDI that can eliminate the process of standardization where EDI messages are exchanged through database transactions via a database-to-database communication rather than application-to-application.
      
Channel Competition in internet consumer market. To investigate the nature of conflict between channel members that arises when manufacturers begin to sell products online in addition to selling through the traditional retailing channels. In collaboration with IBM Watson Research Center.
Data Warehousing. To develop methodologies to detect changes in the underlying sources and propagate them to the warehouse and build a system that can conduct drill-down analysis. Sponsored by DPSC and Lawrence Livermore National Labora- tory.
Development of a Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) system for CRAMTD (Combat Ration Advanced Manufacturing Technology Demonstration) to support several key manufacturing and management functions of small to medium businesses in manufacturing packaged food products for civilian and military. Sponsored by DLA and DoD.
