FREE graphical data analysis tool to fight against COVID-19

How can iCoSys help researchers and clinicians fight against the COVID-19 ? Our colleague Dr Beat Wolf developed with Phenosystems SA a graphical data analysis tool for genetic data since 2012 : GensearchNGS. He expanded it now to include the SARS-CoV2 virus genome, to help researchers and clinicians work against the virus. GensearchNGS allows geneticists to work with […]

Anomalies detection for an Industry 4.0

At iCoSys we bet on an Industry 4.0 future. Lorenz Rychener, Frédéric Montet & Jean Hennebert asked themselves about how to detect anomalies of production machines by using machine learning ? They wrote a reflection about the impact of using machine learning algorithms to increase the reliability of industrial process and also highlight the advantages of such […]

iCoService Update !

We are proudly releasing a nice update to our microservices cluster! We recently added shared GPU support on top of Kubernetes. This was needed to deploy some larger deep learning models. The task was not easy as, by default, Kubernetes schedules only one container per GPU, which results in a considerable waste of computing resources. […]

Making Fribourg and Bulle smarter

La Liberté newspaper wrote about the SmartCity applied research project iCoSys, ISIS and Energy worked on. The project is about creating an intelligent network of measures using IoT Lora technology which will help the cities of Fribourg and Bull solve their problems of increased road traffic, noise and air quality. Read all about it there […]
