2010 Thomas Alva Edison Award

Nirwan Ansari, of Montville and New Jersey Institute of Technology inventor, along with co-inventors Yun-Qing Shi and Zhicheng Ni were honored for their roles in inventing "System and Method for Robust Reversible Data Hiding and Data Recovery in the Spatial Domain."

 
Inventors, from left, Yun-Qing Shi, Nirwan Ansari, of Montville, and Zhicheng Ni, from the New Jersey Institute of Technology were recently awarded the 2010 Thomas Alva Edison Award.

This innovation is capable of identifying a robust statistical quantity based on a statistical analysis of natural images and employing it in data embedding, differentiating the bit-embedding process based on the pixel's group's different distribution characteristics, and using error correction codes and permutation schemes. The invented scheme can achieve both reversibility and robustness while not generating salt and pepper noise on the marked image, which is unlike its predecessor modulo-256.

More than 30 New Jersey inventors from eight companies and universities were honored with the 2010 Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award on Nov. 4 during a ceremony and reception at the Liberty Science Center hosted by the Research and Development Council of New Jersey.

This coveted honor recognizes the outstanding work done by New Jersey scientists and their respective organizations by highlighting the most exceptional efforts. These awards, along with individual honors received by Nobel Laureate Dr. George E. Smith, Governor Tom Kean and Merck Institute for Science Education's Dr. Carlo Parravano, were presented in the nation's largest IMAX Theater where a film paid tribute to the work of the honorees.

"It is essential to the Council's basic mission of advancing research and development in New Jersey to celebrate our inventors' accomplishments," said Tom Degnan, council chairman and ExxonMobil manager. "In doing so, we are not only supporting what has been done, but we are encouraging what remains to be done."

Also recognized were Stevens Institute of Technology, BASF Corporation, Alcatel Lucent, Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Osteotech, Rutgers University, and ExxonMobil.

The Research & Development Council of New Jersey is a non-profit organization dedicated to cultivating an environment that supports the advancement of research and development throughout New Jersey. The Council is composed of senior representatives from industry, academia and government. Many R&D Council members represent today's Fortune 500 companies.
