  1. 1. Free Ensemble Improvisation

    Author : Harald Stenström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; aleatorics; artistic research; attractor state; central tone; chaotic systems; collective understanding; comprovisation; conceptual model; directed motion; ensemble size; feedback and feedforward; free ensemble improvisation; gesture; importance of rhythm; indeterminacy; interactional skill; listening skill; musical evaluation; musical interaction; musical maturity; musical chemistry; musical interpretation; musical composition; non-idiomatic improvisation; rhythmic flow; sound properties; stylistic influences;

    Abstract : The aim of this doctoral project has been to study so-called non-idiomatic improvisation in ensembles consisting of two or three musicians who play together without any restrictions regarding style or genre and without having predetermined what is to be played or how they should play. The background to this thesis has been the author’s own free improvising, which he has pursued since 1974, and the questions that have arisen whilst music-making. READ MORE

  2. 2. Utilizing Diversity and Performance Measures for Ensemble Creation

    University dissertation from Örebro universitet

    Author : Tuve Löfström; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ensemble Learning; Machine Learning; Diversity; Artificial Neural Networks; Data Mining; Information Fusion; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : An ensemble is a composite model, aggregating multiple base models into one predictive model. An ensemble prediction, consequently, is a function of all included base models. Both theory and a wealth of empirical studies have established that ensembles are generally more accurate than single predictive models. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimal weather routing using ensemble weather forecasts

    University dissertation from Örebro universitet

    Author : Lukas Skoglund; Jakob Kuttenkeuler; Anders Rosén; Wengang Mao; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; route optimization; ensemble weather forecasts;

    Abstract : Ships small and large all battle the elements when crossing the worlds oceans.  As such, ships are designed to operate in situations with high speed winds and heavy waves.  There are however limits to what any ship can handle safely and it is thus important to avoid the worst weather systems as much as possible.

  4. 4. Improving diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes in an emergency setting: A machine learning approach

    University dissertation from Örebro universitet

    Author : Michael Green; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ensemble; artificial neural network; machine learning; acute coronary syndrome; electrocardiogram; case based explanation; decision support system;

    Abstract : Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is the biggest people killer in the western world today. Despite well trained physicians and reliable diagnostic tools, diagnosing ACS early in the emergency departments (ED) remains a challenge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diabetes Mellitus Glucose Prediction by Linear and Bayesian Ensemble Modeling

    University dissertation from Department of Automatic Control, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Ståhl; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Diabetes; Glucose Prediction; Identification; Ensemble Prediction;

    Abstract : Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic disease of impaired blood glucose control due to degraded or absent bodily-specific insulin production, or utilization. To the affected, this in many cases implies relying on insulin injections and blood glucose measurements, in order to keep the blood glucose level within acceptable limits. READ MORE
