Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) have found extensive applications across diverse fields, such as image classification, speech recognition, and natural language processing. However, their susceptibility to various adversarial attacks, notably the backdoor attack, has repeatedly been demonstrated in recent years. <br/>The backdoor attack aims to...

In evolutionary biology, networks are becoming increasingly used to represent evolutionary histories for species that have undergone non-treelike or reticulate evolution. Such networks are essentially directed acyclic graphs with a leaf set that corresponds to a collection of species, and in which non-leaf vertices with indegree 1 correspond...

Interactions are essential to life. At the cellular level, the most fundamental processes rely on interactions between DNA, RNA, and proteins. Given that the structure and function of these molecules are determined by their sequence, it is ultimately the sequence that dictates the strength and specificity of these interactions. Thus, to improve...

Hydraulic transport pipelines are used in dredging, (wet) mining and deep sea mining. These pump-pipeline systems are typically designed using steady-state principles. However, recent cases have shown that steady-state design does not always guarantee stable pipelines. Transients like self-amplifying density waves have shown to be able to...

Improving the efficiency in deploying deep neural networks (DNNs) and processing complex high-dimensional data has drawn increasing attention in recent years. Yet, the deployment of large DNN models is challenged by the high computational complexity and energy consumption, making it difficult to run on resource-constrained devices such as mobile...

Recently, there has been a growing need for sustainable agriculture to increase food security, alleviate poverty, and contribute to climate change mitigation. Smallholder farmers (SFs) play a key role in this endeavor as they are a considerable segment of the global farming population. Despite their relevance, SFs face several challenges that...

The main objectives of bioprocesses are to reliably deliver drugs in a relatively short time frame with high quality within a tight regulatory framework. Bioprocesses are highly complex, the level of automation is moderate, and there is constant pressure to improve efficiency and costs. In addition, climate change and resource scarcity...

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common tachyarrhythmia in the heart. Irregular RR intervals and the absence of a P wave before the QRS complex characterize AF. Although many studies have been done to detect atrial fibrillation, many aspects of this intricate disease need further analysis. AF is often diagnosed by the interpretation of multi...

Meyer, M. (author)
The spin of a single electron or hole provides an attractive candidate for implementing a quantum bit when confined in a semiconductor quantum dot. Such a spin qubit is characterized by long coherence and short gate times. High-fidelity single and two-qubit operations have been demonstrated as well. Additionally, semiconductor quantum dots have...

van Duivendijk, J. (author)
The dissertation focussed on the kind of closure methods used, in the past and at present, to repair breached dikes and to close tidal channels by simple means. By simple means one must think about the application by (mainly) manual labour of local materials and small-scale tools and equipment. The closure of tidal channels is also required in...

le Poole, J.J. (author)
Early-stage design of complex ships is of an iterative nature due to a coevolving problem definition and solution generation. In addition, design decisions are often made based on assumptions early on. To inform the stakeholder dialogue to support the definition of the design problem, designers need to gain insight into the technical feasibility...

Kroon, J. (author)
Because of the large uncertainties associated with rising sea levels, present coastal management is inclined towards utilizing soft, nature-inclusive, and adaptive measures over traditional hard protection structures. This shift towards more sustainable and multi-functional solutions is often called Building with Nature. In the coastal zone,...

Activities underground, such as gas extraction or fluid injection, can disturb the natural stresses present and can cause human-induced earthquakes along pre-existing faults. Even though they are related to engineering, these earthquakes are currently unpredictable. Monitoring and understanding how these earthquakes occur are essential for a...

Indonesia has been dependent on its abundant coal reserves to meet its increasing electricity demand. The Indonesian government is aware of the negative environmental effects of coal combustion and pledged to become carbon neutral by 2060 or earlier by transitioning towards renewables. In principle, it is known that Indonesia has large renewable...

Automated vehicles are anticipated to not only improve safety and comfort but also redefine the nature of driver-vehicle interactions. With these advancements, drivers in automated vehicles share the monitoring and supervising role with the system, creating a unique human-machine team. In this relation, beyond technical excellence, it is...

Transition zones in railway tracks, which occur at changes in track form and or substructure properties, are known to cause issues with track degradation. Examples can be found where a track section, usually a ballast track, transits to a slab track to cross a roadway or waterway through supporting structures such as bridges, level crossings,...

As a response to climate change, substantial efforts are being made to achieve global net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year of 2050, as established by the Paris agreement. To decrease reliance on fossil fuels, we are transitioning to renewable energies and electrifying various sectors. However, certain segments of the global supply chain...

Advanced high strength steels (AHSS) have been widely employed in the automotive industry to meet the requirements of improving crash performance while reducing vehicle weight. The excellent performance of AHSS in strength and ductility comes from a dedicated design of alloy composition and microstructure. However, the addition of some alloying...
