The Nouse™ technology was originally developed at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) by Dr. Dmitry Gorodnichy. His group developed a Video Recognition System that became the first in Canada and one of the first in the world with the focus on developing technologies for real-time automated understanding of video data.
In 2007 Dr. Gorodnichy founded a company called IVIM Inc. and licensed the Nouse™ technology from NRC. The main focus of company's work is to support and further develop the Nouse™.
BRUYÈRE RESEARCH INSTITUTE
The Bruyère Research Institute (BRI), a partnership of Bruyère Continuing Care and the University of Ottawa, was established to support researchers who contribute to the relevant and practical knowledge needed to improve continuing care; specifically, to foster quality of life for the elderly, through programs of research. The BRI has been one of the key partners in assisting with the development of the practical use of the Nouse™. With access to clinicians such as occupational therapists we has been able to develop real-life solutions and work with people with disabilities who need to keep using a computer.
