  1. 1. Autonomous Systems in Society and War : Philosophical Inquiries

    Author : Linda Johansson; Sven Ove Hansson; Philip Brey; KTH; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; UAVs; drones; military robots; laws of war; justification for killing; ethics of care; care robots; functional morality; moral responsibility; Moral Turing Test; robot morality; artificial agent; artificial agency; autonomy; norms; disruptive technology; co-evolution; scenarios; autonomous systems; security; decision guidance; technology assessment;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis is to look at some philosophical issues surrounding autonomous systems in society and war. These issues can be divided into three main categories. The first, discussed in papers I and II, concerns ethical issues surrounding the use of autonomous systems – where the focus in this thesis is on military robots. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electron Transfer in Ruthenium-Manganese Complexes for Artificial Photosynthesis : Studies in Solution and on Electrode Surfaces

    Author : Malin L. A. Abrahamsson; Gerald J. Meyer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Artificial photosynthesis; electron transfer; energy transfer; ruthenium; manganese; titanium dioxide; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : In today’s society there is an increasing need for energy, an increase which for the most part is supplied by the use of fossil fuels. Fossil fuel resources are limited and their use has harmful effects on the environment, therefore the development of technologies that produce clean energy sources is very appealing. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electron and Energy Transfer in Supramolecular Complexes Designed for Artificial Photosynthesis

    Author : Helena Berglund Baudin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; artificial photosynthesis; electron transfer; energy transfer; ruthenium; manganese; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : In the society of today the need for alternative energy sources is increasing. The construction of artificial devices for the conversion of sunlight into electricity or fuel seems very attractive from an environmental point of view, since these devices are based on processes that does not necessarily generate any harmful biproducts.

  4. 4. Model Membranes and Their Interactions with Native and Artificial Lipoproteins

    Author : Sarah Waldie; Marité Cárdenas; Michael Haertlein; Selma Maric; Timothy Dafforn; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Model Cell Membranes; Cholesterol; Lipoproteins; Apolipoprotein E; Lipid Exchange; Reconstituted HDL; Atherosclerosis; Deuteration; Neutron Reflectometry; Small-Angle Neutron Scattering;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis arises from build-up of plaque in the blood, can result in cardiovascular disease and is the largest killer in the west. Low- and high-density lipoproteins are involved in the disease development by depositing and removing lipids to and from artery walls. READ MORE

  5. 5. Artificial neural networks in models of specialization and sympatric speciation

    Author : Niclas Norrström; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Biologi; Naturvetenskap; Natural sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with specialization and how it is linked to sympatric speciation. The trait driving specialization is a cue recognition trait modelled with artificial neural networks that exploiters use to discriminate beneficial resources from detrimental resources based on the signals of the resources.
