Recent advancements in deep learning for aircraft engine fault detection have been predominantly focused on research using simulated datasets. Despite significant progress, the gap between simulated and real-world data underscores a pressing need for models that are more applicable and adaptable to the aerospace industry. This discrepancy stems...

Visits to the pediatric outpatient clinic are often accompanied by stress and anxiety, not only in the child but also within the parents. Within current trends in healthcare, parents are becoming more and more involved in the treatment of their child. The Hospital Hero Foundation, that already developed an app to reduce hospital related fear and...

Machine learning models have improved Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) in aviation, notably in estimating the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of aircraft engines. However, their 'black-box' nature limits transparency, critical in safety-sensitive aviation maintenance. Explainable AI (XAI), particularly Counterfactual (CF) explanations, offers...

Introduction<br/>Approximately 9 in 1000 children are born with congenital heart disease (CHD), of whom a quarter are classified as critical CHD (CCHD) and require an intervention within their first year. Monitoring these patients in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is crucial, yet with increasing amounts of data, detecting subtle...

The main bearing is a critical wind turbine drivetrain component, and its failure can cause the turbine shutdown and expensive repair. As the main bearing degrades, its temperature increases, indicating health deterioration of the component. Various methods proposed in the literature employ physics-based normal behavior models (NBMs) using...

The use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) has seen a breakthrough in clinical research for personalized treatments (Hamburg &amp; Collins, 2010.) Despite the potential advantages of vast EHR data available, constraints of privacy and legislation hinder its use (Rieke et al., 2020.) Health data exists in an interconnected healthcare system ...

Without realising it, a building can have a lot of impact on user health. Using literature studies and interviews in two case studies, we looked at how physical elements in a building affect the user's experience. These physical elements are nature, material, air, light, dimensions, smell, sound and temperature. These interviews took place in...

Cervical Cancer (CC) is a preventable disease and is easily treated when detected early. Yet it is the second most prevalent cancer related death in Cameroon, causing an estimated 1787 deaths each year (Woks et al, 2023). Cameroon has implemented no national strategy to prevent this disease and so screening practices that are in place are...

Global passenger air traffic has doubled in the 13 years prior to 2019, and is expected to double again over the next 20 years or so. Growing demand for aviation is met by a corresponding increase in jet fuel being burned by aircraft, releasing multiple pollutants into the atmosphere. Besides disturbing the Earth’s radiative balance, these...

We humans evolved in nature, but over the years we moved from being a part of nature to being apart from nature. This causes our mental health, with stress as the most important aspect, to suffer from our modern life in the city. A significant challenge we face is finding ways to integrate nature into our build environment for stress relief. A...
