  1. 1. Comparative Assessment of Fuel-Based Systems for Space Heating

    Author : Åsa Karlsson; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiforskning; Energy research; cogeneration; district heating; electric heating; external cost; carbon dioxide mitigation; detached houses; fossil fuels; Energy systems; bioenergy;

    Abstract : Replacing fossil fuels by biofuels and increasing energy efficiency are often considered to be options for reducing the net emission of greenhouse gases. This thesis presents the results of analyses of energy efficiency, emission and cost of whole energy system chains, from the natural resource to the end user when heating detached houses in a Swedish context.

  2. 2. Cognitive and Self-Adaptive SoCs with Self-Healing Run-Time-Reconfigurable RecoBlocks

    Author : Byron Navas; Ingo Sander; Johnny Öberg; Michael Hübner; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER;

    Abstract : In contrast to classical Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), partial and run-time reconfigurable (RTR) FPGAs can selectively reconfigure partitions of its hardware almost immediately while it is still powered and operative. In this way, RTR FPGAs combine the flexibility of software with the high efficiency of hardware. READ MORE

  3. 3. Complex methods of inquiry: structuring uncertainty

    Author : PETER BEDNAR; Institutionen för informatik; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; information system; Contextual Analysis; Contextual Dependencies; Systems Approaches; Systems Thinking; Organizational change; Complex adaptive systems; Uncertainty management; Organizational Emergence; Change Management; Organizational Learning; Human Activity Systems;

    Abstract : Organizational problem spaces can be viewed as complex, uncertain and ambiguous. They can also be understood as open problem spaces. As such, any engagement with them, and any effort to intervene in order to pursue desirable change, cannot be assumed to be just a matter of ‘complicatedness’. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developing digital support for learning and diagnostic reasoning in clinical practice

    Author : Chunli Yan; Helena Lindgren; Juan Carlos Nieves; Lars-Erik Janlert; Franziska Klügl; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Clinical decision-support systems; knowledge representation; possibilistic logic; multi-agent systems; formal argumentation; ontology; automated decision making; inquiry dialogue; end-user development; continuing medical education; dementia;

    Abstract : The two main purposes of clinical decision-support systems (CDSSs) are to provide healthcare professionals decision-making support based on evidence-based medical knowledge, and a continuing medical education. This thesis focuses on both purposes and shows how fundamental theory in the field of artificial intelligence can be developed, adapted and implemented in a CDSS for supporting learning and diagnostic reasoning in clinical practice.
