Interactive information retrieval (IIR) is a user-centered approach to information seeking and retrieval. In this paradigm, the search process is not confined to a single query and a static set of results. Instead, it emphasises the active involvement of users in refining their information needs, iteratively modifying queries, and exploring...

In this thesis, research is presented that explores the characteristics and possibilities of hole spin qubits defined in quantum dots in a germanium/silicon germanium heterostructure. The results of the most important experiments are concerned with distributing quantum information: either by entangling three qubits as the basis for the phase...

Understanding how users retrospectively evaluate their interactions with adaptive intelligent systems is crucial to improving their behaviours during interactions. Prior work has shown the potential to predict retrospective evaluations based on different real-time aspects of conversations, such as verbal cues and non-verbal behaviours. However,...

This paper presents an encoder-decoder-style convolutional neural network (CNN) for the purpose of improving monocular and stereo depth estimation (SDE) estimates, by combining them with the corresponding monocular estimates through a fusion network, assisted by prior information to provide context for the fusion. Video cameras are commonly used...

Plastic has many valuable properties and has become an intrinsic part of our everyday life. An approximated 400 million tonnes is produced every year, consequently, vast quantities of plastic waste find their way into the oceans. The question "Why don't we just clean it up?" led to the founding of The Ocean Cleanup by Dutch entrepreneur Boyan...

The building industry's emphasis on cost-driven standardization has led to more waste, prompting a need for resource-efficient methods. While coreless-filament winding (CFW) with materials like flax fibers show promise, a research gap is present. This study explores how computational design, coupled with coreless-filament winding, can create...

The growing threat of climate change highlights the necessity for long-term solutions in the construction industry. Buildings account for a large share of worldwide energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, so there is an urgent need for creative techniques to improve energy efficiency and reduce their ecological footprint. This thesis...

Recent studies have highlighted the significant impact of built environments (BE) in residential neighbourhoods on well-being, focusing on correlations between micro-scale BE features—such as trees, grass, fences, and bikes—and specific well-being aspects like physical health, social interaction, or perceptions of safety. However, these studies...

Artificial intelligence has a strong need for faster and more energy-efficient solutions, especially for computation performed at the sensor edge. On-chip photonic neural networks (PNNs) offer a promising solution for high speeds and energy efficiency. A less explored side of PNNs is their application to time-series data, which is often the case...

As data centers worldwide consume more power than ever, lowering the energy consumption of software is increasingly important. Software energy testing is often unclear due to a lack of comparable baselines. In this paper, we look at the use of regression testing to alleviate some of the struggles with energy testing. We introduce E-Compare, a...

With the shift to renewable energy becoming more important than ever before and offshore wind farms being one of the sustainable energy resources available, many offshore wind farms are currently being built. <br/>One of the difficulties of these wind farms built with monopiles is that the monopiles and electricity cables must be protected from...

Within the field of computer science (CS), women are under-represented in the workforce and education settings. As Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) grow in popularity, understanding the gender differences in reasons for enrolment and engagement remains crucial to improving learner outcomes. This study investigates why men and women enrol in...

The inability to check how our Internet traffic is being handled and routed poses all kinds of security and privacy risks. Yet, for the typical end-user, the Internet indeed is such a black box. This thesis, adheres to the call for an Internet that is more transparent, and as a step forward proposes a mechanism that carefully balances the desire...

Conventional computing systems involve physically separated storing and processing units. To perform the processing, data is shuttled from the storing unit to the processing unit followed by the actual processing, and the processed data is shuttled back into the storing unit. Unfortunately, this data shuffling contributes significantly to the...

This thesis introduces a new computational methodology to solve partial differential equations within cracked domains, focusing on coupling in-crack physics with the adjacent environment. The crack is represented discretely, allowing to describe explicitly the crack opening, which is a key parameter in the description of the in-crack physics....

Introduction:<br/>Virtual surgical planning is often used to prepare mandibular segment resection with subsequent reconstruction. Patient-specific cutting guides translate the planned resection and reconstruction osteotomies to the surgery. The accuracy of computer-assisted surgery is currently evaluated by heterogeneous methodologies for post...

Structural design for unconventional aircraft can be quite challenging and could undergo<br/>many iterations until a solution is found for all load-cases such as static sizing, stability and<br/>crashworthiness. Ultimately, all of the design aspect are integrated in the earliest design<br/>changes for which Topology Optimization (TO) could...

With climate change posing increasing risks, the Advisory Council for Aviation Research and Innovation in Europe (ACARE) aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 75% and NOx emissions by 90% per passenger kilometer by 2050, compared to a baseline aircraft from 2000. The ARENA project addresses this by developing a waste heat recovery system using...

With the ever-increasing issues caused by global warming, the emission of carbon dioxide has to be minimized. With the transport section being responsible for 24% of global emissions, the demand for electric alternatives is on the rise. <br/>The electrification of passenger vehicles comes with benefits like a smoother driving experience,...

Motivation: Effective management of liver tumors through thermal ablation requires precise monitoring of the ablation zone to ensure successful treatment outcomes. Computed tomography (CT) thermometry offers a promising non-invasive solution to monitor if tumor cells have been heated to the lethal temperature threshold. However, achieving...
