Machine learning applications are increasingly being implemented in socio-technical safety-critical systems, but the safety of these applications is not well understood. This thesis used a mixed-method design and applied four methods to explore the field of machine learning and safety. With the results of these four methods, a framework was...

Machine Learning (ML) is a rapidly growing field. There has been a surge of complex black-box models with high performance. On the other hand, the application of these models especially in high-risk domains is more stagnant due to lack of transparency and trust in these black-box models. There is a disconnect between the black-box character of...

Wind turbines are growing bigger to becomemore cost-efficient. This does increase the severity of the vibrations that are present in the turbine blades, both due to predictable effects like wind shear and tower shadow, and due to less predictable effects like turbulence and flutter. If wind turbines are to become bigger and more cost-efficient,...

Trace metals appear in estuarine systems in two forms: dissolved and particulate.
Describing the partitioning between these two forms is done by a coefficient, K_d, which relies on a number of environmental parameters, such as the salinity of the water and the seasonally dependent biological activity. Although this coefficient is known to...

It is desirable to predict construction cost with a high level of accuracy in the early phase to compare the budgetary with feasibility determinations. Additionally, it is required to be as quick as possible. However, the accuracy of the cost estimation depends on the design details which are extremely limited in such an early phase, rendering...

The Self-Organizing Map (SOM) is an unsupervised neural networktopology that incorporates competitive learning for the classicationof data. In this thesis we investigate the design space of a system incorporating such a topology based on Spiking Neural Networks (SNNs), and apply it to classifying electrocardiogram (ECG) beats. We present novel...

Training machine learning (ML) models for natural language processing usually requires lots of data that is often acquired through crowdsourcing. In crowdsourcing, crowd workers annotate data samples according to one or more properties, such as the sentiment of a sentence, the violence of a video segment, the aesthetics of an image, ... To...

Turbulence modelling corresponds to one of the greatest unsolved problems in physics and mathematics. This phenomenon is marked by the emergence of chaotic vortex structures in the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, and it corresponds to the leading-order effect in the majority of the flows observed in nature. Due to the importance of...

An estimated 40,000 people have trauma related above knee amputations in the United States alone. A transfemoral prosthesis is an artificial limb that replaces the amputated limb. Although trauma related amputations are going down annually, there is still the need for prostheses that are capable of restoring normal biological knee function....

In several machine learning problems, a relatively small subproblem is present in which combinations of (negating) objects or structures result in a negation or otherwise other classification compared to when these (negating) objects are not present. To be more specific, a variant of the XOR problem is present in a small amount of objects in...

Rapid developments of both new (digital) fabrication techniques and innovative software facilitate the possibility to design, check and construct objects with great complexity and uniqueness without a large price tag. After new techniques slowly entered the field of architecture, the next step is to apply them in civil engineering to design load...

Modern refineries typically use a high number of sensors that generate an enormous amount of data about the condition of the plants. This generated data can be used to perform predictive maintenance, an approach to predict impending failures and mitigate downtime in refineries. This research analyzes the scalability of machine learning methods...

Monitoring the release logs of modern online software is a challenging topic because of the enormous amount of release logs and the complicated release process. The goal of this thesis is to develop a pipeline that can monitor the release logs and find anomalous logs, automating this step with anomaly detection and reducing the required manual...

Machine learning techniques receive significant responsibilities, despite growing privacy concerns. Early-stage autonomous vehicles are increasingly appearing on the streets, carrying the burden of transporting human-lives to their destination. Meanwhile, doctors are involving Artificial Intelligence (AI) in their medical diagnoses, basing...

The last decade saw the rise of e-commerce trade and the shift of the manufacturing industry to the emerging economies, China first of all. In this context, the European Customs Authorities experienced an explosion of small parcels coming from e-commerce websites, often from China, and faced difficulties to detect fiscal frauds and security...
