Beamforming is a signal processing technique used in highly directional antennas. An array of antenna elements transmits the same signal, but with a different time delay for each element. By providing the right time delays for each antenna element, the whole array transmits a high-powered signal in one desired direction. This technique can be...

Among all the contributors to fatal accidents, in-flight loss of control (LOC-I) remains one of the largest categories, as indicated by statistics of investigations into past civil aircraft accidents. In flight LOC generally refers to accidents in which the flight crew was unable to maintain control of the aircraft in flight, resulting in an...

Wind turbines are growing bigger to becomemore cost-efficient. This does increase the severity of the vibrations that are present in the turbine blades, both due to predictable effects like wind shear and tower shadow, and due to less predictable effects like turbulence and flutter. If wind turbines are to become bigger and more cost-efficient,...

In theory, hosting providers can play an important role in fighting cybercrime and misuse. This is because many online threats, be they high-profile or mundane, use online storage infrastructure maintained by hosting providers at the core of their criminal operations.
However, in practice, we see large differences in the security measures...

Reservoir operation is a multi-objective optimization problem traditionally solved with dynamic programming (DP) and stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) algorithms. The thesis presents novel algorithms for optimal reservoir operation named nested DP (nDP), nested SDP (nSDP), nested reinforcement learning (nRL) and their multi-objective (MO)...

Multiple instance learning (MIL) is an extension of supervised learning where the objects are represented by sets (bags) of feature vectors (instances) rather than individual feature vectors. For example, an image can be represented by a bag of instances, where each instance is a patch in that image. Only bag labels are given, however, the...

The development of high-throughput measurement techniques resulted in rapidlyincreasing amounts of biological data, which made computational methodsessential for biological research. Hence, the field of bioinformatics emergedthat since plays an important role in storing, making accessible, integrating,and analysing different types of biological...

To facilitate finding of relevant information in ever-growing multimedia collections, a number of multimedia information retrieval solutions have been proposed over the past years. The essential element of any such solution is the relevance criterion deployed to select or rank the items from a multimedia collection to be presented to the user....

Scale is an important parameter of images. Different objects or image structures (e.g. edges and corners) can appear at different scales and each is meaningful only over a limited range of scales. Multi-scale analysis has been widely used in image processing and computer vision, serving as the basis for many high-level image analysis systems....

Cancer is a genetic disease. Step-wise alteration of genes that have a normal function in the cell can lead to the transformation of a healthy cell into a malignant cancer cell. Cancer genes provide several traits to the cell that allow it to become malignant. These traits have been researched for many years, and currently one knows quite well...

On many websites users can personally contribute information, ranging from short text messages to photos and videos. Users can see the information contributed by others and respond to it. These social media actively engage their community in the structuring of the collection by making use of collaborative annotation methods. Next to an improved...

The very basis of this thesis is the collective behavior of ants in colonies. Ants are an excellent example of how rather simple behavior on a local level can lead to complex behavior on a global level that is beneficial for the individuals. The key in the self-organization of ants is communication through pheromones. When an ant forages for...

This thesis contains a study in a subfield of artificial intelligence, learning theory, machine learning, and statistics, known as system (or language) identification. System identification is concerned with constructing (mathematical) models from observations. Such a model is an intuitive description of a complex system. One of the main nice...

The thesis treats classification problems which are undersampled or where there exist an unbalance between classes in the sampling. The thesis is divided into three parts. The first two parts treat the problem of one-class classification. In the one-class classification problem, it is assumed that only examples of one of the classes, the target...
