The music information retrieval community has long recognized the need for better evaluation. Frameworks as comprehensive as in the field of text retrieval are missing. An important problem of evaluation for music retrieval is the high cost. This work continues on the proposed low-cost evaluation model. The low-cost model allows for cheap...

Global hydrological models (GHMs) have become an increasingly valuable tool in a range of global impact studies related to water resources. However, glacier parameterization is often overly simplistic or non-existent in GHMs. The representation of glacier dynamics and evolution, including related products such as glacier runoff, can be improved...

Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) is a geothermal technique that is an important component in the transition towards renewable energy in the heating and cooling industry, which accounts for half of the world's energy consumption. However, the technology has not yet been implemented in many countries. The main reason is that extensive...

Commercial FSI solvers employ partitioned FSI, wherein CFD and CSM solvers are used sequentially to resolve the coupling of interface displacement and stress/force. For strongly coupled problems, multiple sub-iterations of both the solvers are required for a stable and accurate solution. IQN-ILS framework requires fewer sub-iterations for...

BACKGROUND: The Human-Centered Design methodology advocates VR prototyping, as an effective tool to evaluate concepts in a cost-efficient, time-saving way. It is the question of whether it works in the development of a product intended to increase privacy while flying. OBJECTIVE: The current study aims at the application of virtual reality on...

In a context of global warming, summer thermal comfort is a key issue for the design and operation of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEBs). Although there are various methods and benchmarks for the long-term evaluation of summer thermal conditions in free-running buildings, their application to the residential sector is still debated. Based...

Current developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) led to a resurgence of Explainable AI (XAI). New methods are being researched to obtain information from AI systems in order to generate explanations for their output. However, there is an overall lack of valid and reliable evaluations of the effects on users' experience of, and behavior in...

Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) is a new method to assess the desirability of government projects. In a PVE, individuals select their preferred portfolio of government projects given a constrained public budget. Individuals’ preferences for (the impacts of) government projects can be determined based on these choices. The obtained...

This thesis explores how the benefits and drawbacks found in previous government-citizen use cases of Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) translate to a company environment PVE use case. This research is conducted at and with the help of Liander. Liander is one of three energy distribution system operators in the Netherlands. The following...

For real-world problems even the most complex machine learning models can only achieve a certain accuracy. This makes it important to understand why a specific prediction is made. Explanations can provide human decision support by allowing human experts to assess the reasoning of the model as well as the correctness. Specifically, in this thesis...

E-commerce has grown rapidly worldwide over the past decade and thus more parcels are shipped into urban areas. The last mile delivery of these parcels into an urban area create big problems such as congestion and pollution. In order to tackle these problems new solutions have been found by either changing the operations of the system or using...

Many grand challenges like climate change or health security cannot be solved by only the policymakers. Support and expertise of citizens is needed to solve these challenges (Gerton & Mitchell, 2019). Due to the demand for public participation, Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) fulfils the needs of involving many participants in a...

This study investigates paternalistic and non-paternalistic altruistic preferences in the Willingness to Allocate Public Budget approach (WTAPB) in a transport context. To the best of my knowledge the extent to which citizens are willing to sacrifice effects for themselves to realize effects for other people, has not been studied in a WTAPB...

Our society is facing a number of great challenges which will require all of us to significantly change our lifestyle in the coming years. To support people in those transitions, next to systemic changes, new design interventions have to be crafted that intentionally aim to redirect behaviour for the common good. As changing behaviour...

Image2Speech is the relatively new task of generating a spoken description of an image. Similar to Automatic Image Captioning, it is a task focused on describing images, however it avoids the usage of textual resources. An Image2Speech system produces a sequences of phonemes instead of (written) words which makes the Image2Speech task applicable...
