W. K. Ng, M. H B. U C E Bandara, M. H. S. Tharaka, and O. N. N. Fernando, “Design and Implementation of Blockchain on Distributed Database System,” Filing Date: 30 July 2018, NTU Ref: 2018-225.
Technology Disclosure (TD 2018-225) on Design and Implementation of Blockchain on Distributed Database System was licensed to the company CME Private Limited on August 8th, 2018 for S$70,000. Latency of transaction is a core problem associated with all leading blockchain networks, which deviates most of the platforms from real time transaction processing capability (Bitcoin takes 10 minutes to verify a transaction). We incorporated blockchain features into fault tolerant, highly available and high throughput compatible Cassandra distributed database for this project.

Technology Disclosure (TD/248/14) on Socially Mediated System for Vector-Borne Diseases Surveillance, Engagement, and Communication was licensed to the SKOLL GLOBAL THREATS FUNDS on September 4th, 2017 for S$5000. This project, called "Mo-Buzz, a mobile participatory system for dengue surveillance" which was launched in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The overall architecture of the system has three main layers, each of which is comprised of a set of components and serves distinct functions.
Research work related to Socially Mediated System for Vector-Borne Diseases Surveillance, Engagement, and Communication (Technical Disclosure: TD/248/14) received widespread publicity and news coverage in Sri Lanka (Sri Lankan Newspapers and TV channels over the period of March-April 2018). It has made significant impact in helping combating Dengue among school children with the ‘DengueFreeChild’ app. The app enables users to proactively report of Dengue or suspected Dengue fever so that action can be taken to the premises around which the infection is prevalent for mosquito breeding areas as well as to alert other parents to keep a keen eye on Dengue-like symptoms in their own children. This app was made using our Mo-Buzz framework (Technical disclosure: TD/248/14) which was licensed to SKOLL GLOBAL THREATS FUNDS.
