The use of machine learning (ML), especially neural networks, in modeling control systems has shown promise, particularly for systems with complex physics. However, applying these models in safety-critical areas requires reliable verification and control synthesis methods due to their inherent complexity. Formal methods, using stochastic finite...

This study explores the potential of ChatGPT, a large language model, in scientometrics by assessing its ability to predict citation counts, Mendeley readers, and social media engagement. In this study, 2222 abstracts from PLOS ONE articles published during the initial months of 2022 were analyzed using ChatGPT-4, which used a set of 60 criteria...

To cope with the groundwater depletion problem and achieve sustainable groundwater development, groundwater conservation measures and managed aquifer recharge (MAR) have been implemented worldwide. However, knowledge gaps exit how does the aquifer system respond to these interventions differently and if these interventions are adequate to...

Autonomous robots are often successfully deployed in controlled environments. Operation in uncontrolled situations remains challenging; it is hypothesized that the detection of abstract discrete states (ADS) can improve operation in these circumstances. ADS are high-level system states that are not directly detectable and influence system...

This thesis investigates the practice and theory of Unism, art theory developed by Polish avant- garde painter Władysław Strzemiński and his wife, sculptor and designer Katarzyna Kobro. Artists who initialy worked under the influence of Russian Constructivism and Suprematism of Kazmir Malevich, along with the creation of Unism gained...

Current approaches of abstraction and conceptuality in the discourse of memorialisation can be useful to commemorate contemporary events, but the inherent flaws and<br/>shortcomings in the misuse of abstraction are insufficient in the quest of establishing a connection with the distant past. This thesis acts as a call for a different direction...

Event-triggered control (ETC) is a major recent development in cyber–physical systems due to its capability of reducing resource utilization in networked devices. However, while most of the ETC literature reports simulations indicating massive reductions in the sampling required for control, no method so far has been capable of quantifying...

Due to an increased presence of robots in human-inhabited environments, we observe a growing body of examples in which humans show behavior that is indicative of strong social engagement towards robots that do not possess any life-like realism in appearance or behavior. In response, we focus on the under-explored concept of a common locus as a...

There is growing interest to control cyber-physical systems under complex specifications while retaining formal performance guarantees. In this thesis we present a framework for formal control of uncertain systems under complex specifications. We consider dynamical systems with random disturbances, whose probability distribution is unknown. When...

Reinforcement learning (RL) has grown tremendously over one and a half decades and is increasingly emerging in many real-life applications. However, the application of RL is still limited due to its low training efficiencies and surplus training cost. The sampling and computation complexity normally depends on the size of the state space and...

Event-triggered control (ETC) and self-triggered control (STC) are sample-and-hold control paradigms in which sensor data is only updated to the controller when necessary, often aperiodically, in contrast to the well-established periodic sampling paradigm. In ETC, a state-dependent event triggers a transmission, while in STC the controller...

A fundamental challenge in networked control systems is reducing the amount of communications of each system in the network, so that bandwidth and energy are used efficiently. To address the challenge, the research community has shifted its focus to Event-Triggered Control (ETC), in which communication between the control system's different...

Architecture is a creative craft within certain limitations of program, technical requirements, environmental aspects, etc. and every project comes with a vast number of challenges that have to be tackled, giving the designer endless possibilities for solutions. A design tool used by many architects throughout the centuries to explore these...

The project proposes a bathhouse for Teraizije Terrace in Belgrade. It is not intended as a place of repose or contemplation, but as an urban void, a receptive space that listens to its users instead of speaking to them. Kenya Hara's sensibility of 'emptiness', which he calls 'whiteness', is used as a leading figure to create such a place....

Saltwater intrusion in groundwater is a concern in many aquifers around the world. It results in deterioration of potable and irrigation water quality and degradation of ecosystems. The problem is exacerbated by fresh groundwater abstraction, drying climates and a rising seawater level.<br/>Esperance is a small town situated on the south coast...

Complex real-world systems pose a significant challenge to decision making: an agent needs to explore a large environment, deal with incomplete or noisy information, generalize the experience and learn from feedback to act optimally. These processes demand vast representation capacity, thus putting a burden on the agent’s limited computational...

Within the majority of port city literature, the evolution of port cities is still explained as an inevitable or ‘logical’ process whereby maritime land-uses gradually migrate from city centres towards waterfront zones with deep water access. Between the 1950s and 2000s, obsolete port areas around the world have surely become waterfront...

Human activities both aggravate and alleviate streamflow drought. Here we show that aggravation is dominant in contrasting cases around the world analysed with a consistent methodology. Our 28 cases included different combinations of human-water interactions. We found that water abstraction aggravated all drought characteristics, with...

We present ETCetera, a Python library developed for the analysis and synthesis of the sampling behaviour of event triggered control (ETC) systems. In particular, the tool constructs abstractions of the sampling behaviour of given ETC systems, in the form of timed automata (TA) or finite-state transition systems (FSTSs). When the abstraction...

Model-based reinforcement learning methods are promising since they can increase sample efficiency while simultaneously improving generalizability. Learning can also be made more efficient through state abstraction, which delivers more compact models. Model-based reinforcement learning methods have been combined with learning abstract models to...
