More is more applies in particular to systems with interacting parts. These interactions enable the emergence of collective behaviour. Examples can be found among the behaviour of animals, such as the V-shaped formation of migrating geese and the flight of a flock of starlings. More examples are found among the electromagnetic properties of...

The world around us is rapidly changing and evolving. In a new report by the World green structure committee, the building and development industry are liable for 38.8% of all CO2 emissions internationally, with operational outflows (from energy used to warmth, cool and light structures) representing 28%. Our designed structures depend upon many...

Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is one of the leading causes of permanent vision loss. Its current prevalence is around 45 millions across the globe and is projected to 70 million by 2045. Most of the people with this disease condition belong to remote and low income settings. We can reduce this incidence, if quality medical care is accessible in...

Recent developments in quantum annealing have shown promising results in logistics, life sciences, machine learning and more. However, in the field of geophysical sciences the applications have been limited. A quantum annealing application was developed for residual statics estimation. Residual statics estimation is a highly non-linear problem...

Learning from demonstration is a technique where the robot learns directly from humans. It can be beneficial to learn from humans directly because humans can easily demonstrate complex behaviors without being experts in demonstrating required tasks. However, it can be challenging to gather large amounts of data from humans because humans often...

Siltation of fine (cohesive) sediment in navigation channels and harbour basins may cause serious problems for the shipping industry. Intensive maintenance dredging is required to ensure safe shipping traffic. Conventional dredging methods are highly expensive, and therefore port authorities seek for more efficient solutions to reduce costs. One...
