ORNL wins eight R&D 100s
Date:7/11/2014

tively reduces friction and wear. This ionic lubricant technology has the potential to save the United States millions of barrels of oil each year.

The research was sponsored by DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Vehicle Technologies Office.

iSPM: Intelligent Software for Personalized Modeling of Expert Opinions, Decisions and Errors in Visual Examination Tasks was developed by Georgia Tourassi, Songhua Xu, Hong-Jun Yoon and Sophie Voisin of the Computational Sciences and Engineering Division at ORNL.

By combining innovative visual diagrams and pioneering analytic rule sets, iSPM helps analysts perform visual tasks such as making medical diagnoses. The software uses eye-tracking hardware, user-interaction and advanced analysis to predict a person's perceptual behavior, cognitive response and risk of error for complex decision tasks. This technology could improve patients' health outcomes and lower medical errors, while providers could pay lower malpractice costs. In addition, the software can be used in fields such as education and homeland security where experts also perform risk-sensitive visual tasks.

Funding for the research was provided by ORNL's Laboratory Directed Research and Development Program.

Portable Aluminum Deposition System, or PADS, was developed by ORNL, the University of Mississippi and United Technologies Research Center. ORNL researchers were Sheng Dai, Xiao-Guang Sun and Youxing Fan.

The aluminum plating advancement is expected to replace hazardous coatings such as cadmium, thereby potentially strengthening the competiveness of United States manufacturing companies worldwide and cutting the cost of aluminum plating by a factor of 50 to 100. By using newly developed ionic liquid electrolytes and a novel electrolyte dispensing mechanism to deposit aluminum, PADS allows manufacturers to safely conduct aluminum deposition in open atmosphere for the first time.
