Guichard, Etienne (author)
Neural Cellular Automata (NCA) have recently been proposed as neuromorphic robot controllers. Despite their promising behavioural characteristics and small parameter counts, training NCA for control tasks has proven difficult and unstable. It is so tricky that curriculum-like multi-stage training programs must be used for simple control tasks....

Life, the most complex and admirable machine that one could think of has evolved over billions of years to display a beautiful variety of mechanisms that keep cells adapting, self-maintaining, reproducing, and evolving. If we think about it, what is this magic? What are the mechanisms behind life’s origins and wonderful coordination? Attracted...

n the rapidly evolving semiconductor industry, precise material characterization is crucial. This thesis focuses on enhancing Ion Beam Analysis (IBA), a pivotal tool in semiconductor characterization, through the integration of differential evolution optimization. This research proposes a single and multi spectra optimization algorithm approach...

In society, institutions are the foundation that governs human behaviour through rules, norms, and regulations. The actions and interactions of individuals are shaped by these institutions, forming a cyclic system with numerous parameters and factors. Altering any of these factors, triggers the entire system to transition into a new state that...

With a dedicated mission to the Martian moons, Phobos and Deimos, set to launch soon, there is a growing interest in further exploring these moons using low-thrust propulsion. This paper investigates the trajectory design for a sample-return mission from Deimos using fuel-free solar sail propulsion technology, aiming to maximize operational time...

Social disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic challenged existing institutional arrangements that govern the society. During that time, nation-states had to prevent the collapse of society and rapidly establish new institutions and adapt existing ones to address public health, job security, and freedom-of-movement concerns. At the same time...

Contemporary Biocatalysis heavily relies on enzyme engineering as natural enzymes frequently lack the requisite attributes for effective organic synthesis. The inherent limitations in stability, catalytic activity, and selectivity of wild-type enzymes often hinder their suitability for chemical synthesis. Over the past 25 years, there has...

Calcium sodium aluminosilicate hydrate C-(N-)A-S-H gels, formed through the alkali-activation of calcium silicate-based materials, may exhibit greater susceptibility to aqueous environments when compared to traditional C-(A-)S-H phases formed by hydration of blended Portland cements. This study investigates structural changes in synthesized C...

Early-age cracking risk induced by autogenous deformation is high for cementitious materials of low water-binder ratios. The autogenous deformation, viscoelastic properties, and stress evolution are three important factors for understanding and quantifying the early-age cracking risk. This paper systematically reviewed the experimental and...

Technological innovations are becoming increasingly systemic in the complex and interconnected world. The initiation and evolution of systemic innovations take time and include numerous challenges, and the mechanisms through which systemic innovations emerge in the interaction between different technologies represent a research gap. This...

Astonishing progress has been achieved in unlocking new-to-nature biocatalysis in the past decades. The progress in protein engineering enabled research to efficiently incorporate artificial structural elements into enzyme design. Recent trends include cofactor mimetics, artificial metalloenzymes and non-canonical amino acids. In this...

Urban areas are dynamic systems, in which different infrastructural, social and economic subsystems continuously co-evolve. As such, disruptions in one system can propagate to another. However, open challenges remain in (i) assessing the long-term implications of change for resilience and (ii) understanding how resilience propagates...
