This graduation project arose from Erasmus MC’s mission to continuously improve the patient experience. The results of the patient monitoring by Erasmus MC showed that an intervention at their ophthalmology outpatient clinic (OOC) could contribute to this objective. The patient satisfaction scores on wait time experience were very low at this...

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) that are integrated with the electricity grid have proven to be a suitable solution for reducing costs by providing flexible demand, but are often uneconomical when used solely for this purpose. Despite the research efforts showing the benefits of an energy-integrated harbor-area smart grid (HASG), the...

Food waste remains a large problem globally, not only in the light of global greenhouse gas emissions, but also in the light of decreasing resource availability. Research in this area has so far mainly focused on behavioral factors influencing production of food waste, while the formal and informal institutions that relate to the management of...

As the amount of information available in the world grows, Information Retrieval (IR) systems have become an integral part of day to day life. They determine what subset of the large pool of information is shown to people. IR algorithms determine which items should be returned in response to a query and rank the results in a ranked list.<br/...

Out-of-domain (OOD) generalization refers to learning a model from one or more different but related domain(s) that can be used in an unknown test domain. It is challenging for existing machine learning models. Several methods have been proposed to solve this problem, and multi-domain calibration is one of these methods. Model selection with the...

We analyze three different methods that can approximate the expected shortfall of a financial portfolio in a nested simulation. In this simulation process, the outer simulation generates risk scenarios, and the inner simulation approximates the value of the financial portfolio under each risk scenario. The first method is the most standard one,...

Retrofitting residential buildings can help mitigate the effects of climate change. Cognitive biases are systematic deviations from rationality in decision making and can lead to inaction, delay, and uncertain decisions. Understanding the cognitive biases involved in residential renovation decisions and developing interventions to overcome...

Contagious itch can be evoked by observing people scratching. Verbal suggestions about to-be-received itch can influence itch intensity, as shown by placebo research, but it is unknown whether this extends to contagious itch. The current study aimed to replicate prior findings that listening to scratching and rubbing sounds elicits contagious...

The complexity of corrosion mechanisms in harsh offshore environments poses safety and integrity challenges to oil and gas operations. Exploring the unstable interactions and complex mechanisms required an advanced probabilistic model. The current study presents the development of a probabilistic approach for a consequence-based assessment of...

In 2020 an article about USA experts’ opinions on the future of technology education was published. Several concerns were expressed by the experts in the Delphi study that had been conducted, such as a shortage of teachers and funding. From the start of the study in USA the idea was to conduct similar studies in other countries. In Finland such...

The free energy principle from neuroscience provides an efficient data-driven framework called the Dynamic Expectation Maximization (DEM), to learn the generative model in the environment. DEM’s growing potential to be the brain-inspired learning algorithm for robots demands a mathematically rigorous analysis using the standard control system...

BACKGROUND: eHealth interventions have the potential to increase the physical activity of users. However, their effectiveness varies, and they often have only short-term effects. A possible way of enhancing their effectiveness is to increase the positive outcome expectations of users by giving them positive suggestions regarding the...

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the Netherlands, often caused by having too much exposure to UV radiation from the sun. An effect of this is that the part of the body that is exposed the most to the sun is also the body part where skin cancer is seen more often; the head. When the skin cancer gets removed surgically, the defect...

Interest rate products form a large segment of over-the-counter derivatives. When the interest rate became negative, for the first time, in July 2009, interest rate models needed to adjust. Where first a log-normal model, as the Brace Gatarek Musiela (BGM) model, might have seemed logical for interest-rate products, as they were<br/>bounded by...

Scientists have been warning for years about the consequences of the current take-make-waste system, and incremental change is needed to enable the environment to regenerate and move towards a sustainable society. Especially electronic waste (e-waste), which currently increases three times faster than regular waste and is hard to collect and...

The Rebuilding Macroeconomic Theory Project, led by David Vines and Samuel Wills (2020), is an important, albeit long overdue, initiative to rethink a failing mainstream macroeconomics. Professors Vines and Wills, who must be congratulated for stepping up to the challenge of trying to make mainstream macroeconomics relevant again, call for a new...

In this article, we estimate the mean-variance portfolio in the high-dimensional case using the recent results from the theory of random matrices. We construct a linear shrinkage estimator which is distribution-free and is optimal in the sense of maximizing with probability one the asymptotic out-of-sample expected utility, that is, mean...

The purpose of this paper is to explore the expectations of academic staff to learning analytics services from an ideal as well as a realistic perspective. This mixed-method study focused on a cross-case analysis of staff from Higher Education Institutions from four European universities (Spain, Estonia, Netherlands, UK). While there are some...

Ever-increasing numbers of human interactions with intelligent software agents, online and offline, and their increasing ability to influence humans have prompted a surge in attention toward the concept of (online) manipulation. Several scholars have argued that manipulative influence is always hidden. But manipulation is sometimes overt, and...

In this paper, we propose a neural network-based method for CVA computations of a portfolio of derivatives. In particular, we focus on portfolios consisting of a combination of derivatives, with and without true optionality, e.g., a portfolio of a mix of European- and Bermudan-type derivatives. CVA is computed, with and without netting, for...
