The use of machine learning systems has great potential to better predict probabilities of default for credit underwriting. Despite this advantage, herewith there exists the substantial risk of discrimination. Moreover, machine learning models with the highest prediction-accuracy are often the least explicable (i.e. explainable). Nonetheless,...

Passenger travel characteristics (PTCs) are characteristics that are sought from the information contained in trips, such as travel frequency, travel mode, departure location, and etc. Understanding PTCs can help develop passenger-oriented planning and service policies, so analysis of PTCs is a topic of constant interest to researchers and...

In case of finding an optimised solution in real-time, automation may not be a helpful tool to be able to select preferable decisions and implement actions due to the complexity involved. More notably, in the case of an over-constrained dynamic vehicle routing problem as there is no solution which can satisfy all the constraints in real-time...

Cartilage repair remains a major challenge and treatment of osteochondral defects generally results in inferior quality fibrous repair tissue. This study aims to elaborate on the work of Korthagen et al. who developed a thermoplastic polyurethane and polyetherketoneketone implant to treat osteochondral defects. Although promising results were...

In the Netherlands the preterm birth rate is around 7%. The problematic part is that these preterm infants make up for 72% of all deaths during or shortly after birth. To provide a way to aid these infants the following question was stated by the doctor: "turn on a light in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when the preterm infant’s development...

This thesis describes the creation of the Equivalent Shear Masonry Model (ESMM). This is an orthotropic material model for low bond strength masonry that uses a smeared cracking approach. It was developed as an improvement of the Engineering Masonry Model (EMM) and adopts that model’s constitutive relations for the behaviour normal to the bed...

Traditional Artificial Neural Networks(ANNs)like CNNs have shown tremendous opportunities in various domains like autonomous cars, disease diagnosis, etc. Proven learning algorithms like backpropagation help ANNs in achieving higher accuracy. But there is a serious challenge with the increasing popularity of traditional ANNs is of energy...

The amount of international shipped cargo grows steadily, and seas are exploited for seabed mining and energy production more than ever. As a result, there is an increase in traffic density and decrease in free navigational space, potentially causing a higher incidence of dangerous navigation situations that may lead to ship collisions. This...

This master’s thesis documents the design process behind Microfarm, a small-scale indoor farm designed specifically for restaurants. Facilitator of this project is Priva, which is a company specialized in horticulture and venturing into indoor farming. Indoor farming involves growing edible plants in closed structures using artificial lighting...

An entrepreneurial ecosystem has become a paradigm between policy makers, regional developers as well as profit seeking organizations to spur start-up establishment and growth rates. Numerous studies have focused on conceptualization of an entrepreneurial ecosystem and the potential benefits that may be accrued regionally by effectively...

Recently, by Z. Shen, resolvent estimates for the Stokes operator were established in <i>L<sup>p</sup>(Ω) </i>when <i>Ω</i> is a Lipschitz domain in <i>R<sup>d</sup></i>, with <i>d≥3</i> and<i> |1/p-1/2|&lt;1/(2d)+ε</i>. This result implies that the Stokes operator generates a bounded analytic semigroup in <i>L<sup>p</sup>(Ω)</i> in the case...

As the digitisation of the world progresses at an accelerating pace, an overwhelming quantity of data from a variety of sources, of different types, organised in a multitude of forms or not at all, are subjected into diverse analytic processes for specific kinds of value to be extracted out of them. The aggregation of these analytic processes...

Safe navigation in unknown environments is a challenging task for autonomous Micro Aerial Vehicle (MAV) systems. Previous works generally avoid obstacles by assuming that the environment is static. The purpose of this thesis work is to develop a MAV system that can navigate autonomously and safely in dynamic environments. We present an onboard...

This thesis is dedicated to the application of data science to sports data. The research for this thesis is part of a bigger project on injury prevention and sport performance called Citius Altius Sanius (CAS). Two data sets from two different projects within CAS are analysed, with two different goals; one focusses on sports injury prevention in...

Spectral Monte Carlo renderers are capable of reproducing several advanced phenomena of light, such as chromatic dispersion and fluorescence. As spectral renderers must sample the spectral domain, they are typically hampered by a multitude of sampling issues leading to notably poor convergence rates, which are reinforced when realistic emission...

In the last decade, an increasing amount of people has become aware of the negative impact their behaviour has on the environment. However, most consumers are not aware of the negative environmental impact of the products they purchase and possess. Research has been done on different aspects of products for a circular economy, such as product...
