Infant Blink Detection

Distributed machine learning is becoming a popular model-training method due to privacy, computational scalability, and bandwidth capacities. In this work, we explore scalable distributed-training versions of two algorithms commonly used in object detection. A novel distributed training algorithm using Mean Weight Matrix Aggregation (MWMA) is proposed for Linear Support Vector…

Local energy systems

Sustainable energy transition aims to develop low-carbon, reliable, secure and affordable energy systems. Local energy systems (LESs) are a promising solution. LES can take advantage of decentralised renewable resources and can lead to, e.g., increased reliability, flexibility, resilience, and security of supply of the energy system. Moreover new business models emerge around peer-to-peer…
