Ontario Brain Institute partners with the University of Toronto to help young scientists intern in industry

TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2012, 2012 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- -- Experience away from the bench for Ontario's graduate neuroscientists.

In its second initiative this year to offer on-the-job training to graduate researchers, the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI) is partnering with the University of Toronto Graduate Enterprise Internship Program (GEI) and the Engineering Career Centre - Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, to provide work internships in the province's scientific industry. Each internship provides 6 months of employment with a southern Ontario-based company. The province is at the forefront of global neuroscience research and ranks fourth in the world in terms of brain research.

The Ontario Brain Institute Graduate Opportunities (OBI GO) Internship program is part of OBI's Experiential Education Initiative (EEI). This initiative provides opportunities and experience away from the bench, for students and recent graduates from neuroscience and related programs, from across the province. The specific goal of the OBI GO Internships is to give neuroscience graduates the skills and experience they need to thrive in careers in the neurotechnology industry.

The OBI Go internships are, in turn, part of a broader $4 million initiative funded by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario and the University of Toronto to help up to 300 graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs transfer their skills to the workplace.

Said Dr. Donald Stuss, President and Scientific Officer of OBI: "We're working to translate Ontario's huge potential for breakthrough discoveries around the brain into new jobs, businesses and entire industries. The new internship program is another step towards reaching that goal."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
