  1. 1. Accuracy of turbocharged SI-engine simulations

    Author : Fredrik Westin; KTH; []
    Keywords : boosting; turbocharging; supercharging; modelling; simulation; turbine;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis deals mainly with modelling ofturbocharged SIengines. A model of a 4-cylinder engine was runin both steady state and transient conditions and the resultswere compared to measured data. Large differences betweenmeasurements and simulations were detected and the reasons forthis discrepancy were investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Visual Object Tracking and Classification Using Multiple Sensor Measurements

    Author : Yixiao Yun; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sensor fusion; Riemannian manifold; visual pattern classification; multiple view geometry; Visual object tracking; boosting; multiple sensor measurement;

    Abstract : Multiple sensor measurement has gained in popularity for computer vision tasks such as visual object tracking and visual pattern classification. The main idea is that multiple sensors may provide rich and redundant information, due to wide spatial or frequency coverage of the scene, which is advantageous over single sensor measurement in learning object model/feature and inferring target state/attribute in complex scenarios.

  3. 3. Mixture Effects of Environmental Contaminants

    Author : Erik Lampa; Monica Lind; Jonas Björk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mixtures; Environmental Contaminants; Atherosclerosis; Metabolic Syndrome; Boosting; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Chemical exposure in humans rarely consists of a single chemical. The everyday exposure is characterized by thousands of chemicals mainly present at low levels. Despite that fact, risk assessment of chemicals is carried out on a chemical-by-chemical basis although there is a consensus that this view is too simplistic. READ MORE

  4. 4. Boosting behavioral change in residential electricity consumption : demand response programs and feedback

    Author : Cajsa Bartusch; Lars Wester; Monica Odlare; Thomas Porathe; Mikael Larsson; Kajsa Ellegård; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : As part of realizing national and European climate ambitions, it is imperative to bring about increased energy efficiency and consumption flexibility in the residential sector of the Swedish power market. In addition to governmental policy instruments to this end, market-based measures play an important role in making behavioral change in domestic electricity use happen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Scalable Machine Learning through Approximation and Distributed Computing

    Author : Theodore Vasiloudis; Anders Holst; Henrik Boström; Seif Haridi; Daniel Gillblad; Indre Žliobaitė; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Online Learning; Distributed Computing; Graph Similarity; Decision Trees; Gradient Boosting;

    Abstract : Machine learning algorithms are now being deployed in practically all areas of our lives. Part of this success can be attributed to the ability to learn complex representations from massive datasets. READ MORE
