The MIT Technology Licenses Office welcomes companies to get to know us personally. We find it most effective to work individually with a company to identify specific areas of interest. We then bring inventions, which specifically match the company's interests to the attention of the company. With 500 new invention disclosures coming into our office each year, our portfolio is constantly changing. The technologies highlighted here do not encompass our entire portfolio. We therefore encourage companies to keep in touch on a regular basis and also to contact us when a particular technology need arises.
Our technology is usually early stage and often requires substantial development by the licensing company before a commercial product is ready for market. Because of this, we often find that the best contact person from the company is one who is knowledgeable about the company's science and technology and also familiar with the long-term strategic plans of the company.
15647 – This technology is a method to secure sensitive data in hardware systems and can be used broadly across all cryptography-based systems to provide higher security by preventing leaks. Modem cryptographic systems are constructed to secure data from eavesdropping and manipulation by untrusted parties, while still allowing trusted parties access to the data. Robust, well understood... Read More
16575 – This technology is a self-contained cryptography and key-management solution that is applicable to any crypto-based system or device, and especially suited for applications with strict size, weight, and power restrictions. Traditional cryptographic schemes typically “scramble” or “unscramble” information using a data-permutation algorithm and a short cryptographic key. These keys... Read More
15641 – This technology is a self-contained cryptography and key-management solution that is applicable to any crypto-based system or device, and especially suited for applications with strict size, weight, and power restrictions. Traditional cryptographic schemes typically “scramble” or “unscramble” information using a data-permutation algorithm and a short cryptographic key. These keys... Read More
14407 – This technology facilitates the dissemination of data among mobile devices with cryptographic protections. It has applications in the aviation, auto, trucking and taxicab industries, as well as satellite and mobile communications. Specifically, one application of this technology is for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to broadcast video surveillance data to selectively chosen mobile... Read More
16258 – The Inventors have developed new methods in the application of machine learning techniques that allow for significant extension of current convolutional deep learning networks. These networks are used widely for commercial purposes including image classification/artificial vision and speech recognition. Animal brains are far superior to present supervised learning algorithms in... Read More
9891-10516 – This technology is a fast and improved method to display high-contrast, high-dynamic-range (HDR) images. In digital photography, the management of contrast via exposure, lighting and printing (among other methods) is crucial to the craft. Contrast reduction techniques are therefore in high demand for use in digital photography as well as numerous other applications... Read More
9978 – This technology relates to computer vision and image processing, specifically for contour detection. It has applications in the digital photography market for enhancing photo quality and improving editing techniques. Consumers of digital photography have come to have high expectations of the rapidly expanding market, including artifact-free photographs and the ability to easily... Read More
17529 – This invention is an optical device which uses shortwave infrared light to detect middle ear pathologies. Studies have shown that about 8 million children in the U.S each year are diagnosed with otitis media, the medical term encompassing middle ear infections. A clear diagnostic sign of a middle ear infection is the buildup of fluid behind the ear drum. Reliably identifying the... Read More
14291 – This invention proposes the ear as a location to measure vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac output, and blood oxygenation. Vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, cardiac output, and blood oxygenation are necessary in determining the overall health of a patient. Continuous monitoring of these vital signs can help identify a patient's risk for stroke, heart... Read More
15585 – The Inventors have developed a laser illumination technique to detect surface changes in physical objects. This technology can be used in security and law enforcement scenarios to determine whether physical objects have been tampered with. Laser illumination generates precise speckle patterns on a surface depending on the phase of the light wavefront. These laser... Read More
