SUrvey Network for Deep Imaging Analysis and Learning (SUNDIAL)

Start date: Apr 1, 2017, End date: Mar 31, 2021,

Though Big Data has become common in many domains nowadays, the challenges to develop efficient and automated mining of the ever increasing data sets by new generations of data scientists are eminent. These challenges span wide swathes of society, business and research. Astronomers with their high-tech observatories are historically at the forefront of this field, but obviously, the impact in e.g ...

TRANSITION FROM LINEAR 2 CIRCULAR: POLICY AND INNOVATION (R2PI)

Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2019,

"R2π examines the shift from the broad concept of a Circular Economy (CE) to one of a Circular Economy Business Models (CEBM), by tackling both market failure (business, consumers) and policy failure (conflicts, assumptions, unintended consequence). Its innovation lies in having a strong business-focus, examining stimuli beyond environmental goals (including ICT and eco-innovation), and in examini ...

A Unified Model of Induction (UNIIND)

Start date: Dec 1, 2011, End date: Nov 30, 2016,

In a recent paper with Larry Samuelson and David Schmeidler, we have proposed a model of inductive learning that unifies Bayesian, case-based, and rule-based learning. The model allows one to study the dynamics of induction, and, in particular, it showed that under fairly reasonable conditions, a reasoner who does not know the process she is facing is likely to converge to put more weight on case- ...

Vibration energy harvesting at micro-scale is considered essential to enable low-power, maintenance free and long-lasting wireless sensor networks (WSNs). However, many problems still limit the efficiency of current vibration-driven generators: narrow bandwidth, low power density, MEMS scaling, inconsistent vibrating sources. The scientific objective of this research project is to overcome the pr ...

In the era of life-long learning, the recognition of informal and non-formal learning is crucial. The competence profile of a person is shaped by different forms of learning and should be assessed as a whole. The European Standard on Personnel Certification (EN ISO 17024) controls this process but it is difficult to apply it to all the EQF-levels because there are not enough offers which apply thi ...
