It is already acknowledged that Nature-based Solutions can be used to attenuate waves, however it is still uncertain to what extent the vegetation can contribute to decreasing the flood risk. So far mainly small-scale tests have been performed to quantify wave attenuating properties of vegetation. To quantify the effect of more extreme wave...

As the elderly world population increases, caregivers are switching to remote care and monitoring solutions to enable their patients to live autonomously at home for as long as possible. Such services are based on detecting and recognizing Activities of Daily Living (ADL) by using diverse types of sensors at the elder's home that transmit...

Flight control of the DelFly is challenging, because of its complex dynamics and variability due to manufacturing inconsistencies. Machine Learning algorithms can be used to tackle these challenges. A Policy Gradient algorithm is used to tune the gains of a Proportional-Integral controller using Reinforcement Learning. Furthermore, a novel...

Today's coastal zones are densely inhabited as the majority of the world's population lives in these attractive areas. The shorelines in coastal zones are shaped by complex spatial and temporal variable interactions between natural forcings like changes in mean sea-level, tides, wave and wind conditions, and storm surges. Besides, natural...

Training machine learning (ML) models for natural language processing usually requires lots of data that is often acquired through crowdsourcing. In crowdsourcing, crowd workers annotate data samples according to one or more properties, such as the sentiment of a sentence, the violence of a video segment, the aesthetics of an image, ... To...

The novelty-raahn algorithm has been shown to effectively learn a desired behavior from raw inputs by connecting an autoencoder with a Hebbian network. Hebbian learning is compelling for its biological plausibility and simplicity. It changes the weight of a connection based only on the activations of neurons it connects, and can effectively...

Mechanical metamaterials are a new emerging class of materials which achieve properties outside the bounds of conventional materials. A metamaterial consists of a unit cell which is periodically repeated in space. In this study, a new metamaterial unit cell is proposed, derived from a class of space structures known as deployable masts. What...

Cardiovascular diseases and stroke are currently the leading causes of death worldwide. Atherosclerotic plaque is a mostly asymptotic vascular disease, but rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque in the carotid artery could lead to stroke. Automated segmentation of plaque components could help improve risk assessment by producing fast and reliable...

Convolutional neural networks are showing incredible performance in image classification, segmentation, object detection and other computer vision applications in recent years. But they lack understanding of affine transformations to input data. In this work, we introduce rotational invariant<br/>convolutional neural networks that learn...

The newest generation of aircraft has seen a strong increase in sensor data generated on-board. The available data has the potential to indicate the health state of individual components based on which their maintenance requirements can be determined, a maintenance strategy called Condition Based Maintenance. Predictive Maintenance is a specific...

Motocross is a popular, but dangerous sport: improvements in performance and safety should be made to make it more attractive and less dangerous. By automatically recognizing activities of the rider on the track, riders can be informed about dangerous situations, and fans can be provided with insights into the performance of the riders. The goal...

The Low Earth Orbit (LEO) region has been attractive to many space agencies and organisations because of its ease of access and the ideal opportunity for remote sensing. Due to the low altitudes, a satellite's orbital state is highly affected by the atmospheric drag force acting on the satellite's body. The largest variation in this drag force...

When sunlight illuminates a body, a tiny pressure is exerted upon its surface due to the photons impacting on it. Such a principle forms the basis of solar sailing, in which the solar radiation pressure is used to accelerate highly reflective lightweight structures called solar sails. Similarly, a laser-enhanced solar sail is a solar sail in...

A prevalent approach for learning a control policy in the model-free domain is by engaging Reinforcement Learning (RL). A well known disadvantage of RL is the necessity for extensive amounts of data for a suitable control policy. For systems that concern physical application, acquiring this vast amount of data might take an extraordinary amount...

The aviation industry is vastly growing, as travelling by air is more common today than it ever was. However due too inefficiency and lack of communication of accurate flight information between airports, congestion and delays are occurring on a daily basis. While Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) is developed by Euro control to address this...
