  1. 1. Is Deforestation in Colombia Caused by Oil Palm Expansion?

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Mona Date; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The palm oil industry is growing globally and palm oil is today the most used vegetable oil for biofuels, however, over the last years research has showed that it has caused great deforestation in Southeast Asia where the grand majority of oil palm is produced. There has also been reports on poor working conditions showing that the palm oil is not socially sustainable either. READ MORE

  2. 2. Life cycle assessment of a plus-energy house

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Tim Lohse; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Purpose: This study analyses the environmental impacts of a plus-energy house. Such buildings produce more energy in their use-phase than they consume, by generating energy with photovoltaic cells and saving energy via extensive insulation. The entire life cycle of the building is investigated form cradle to grave. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the topological features of plane geometric shapes and financial transaction data. Topological properties of the data such as homology groups and their stable ranks are analysed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Decarbonization of the building sector : A systematic map of the roadmaps, strategies and action plans for Net-zero and Net-positive energy buildings around the world

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Ajay Kumar Korpal; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Buildings account for 36% of global final energy consumption and almost 40% of total direct and indirect CO2 emissions (IEA, 2019). Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) are an option to reduce both energy consumption and environmental emissions from the building sector. READ MORE

  5. 5. Machine Learning Based Prediction and Classification for Uplift Modeling

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik; KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Lovisa Börthas; Jessica Krange Sjölander; [2020]
    Keywords : Uplift Modeling; Data Pre-Processing; Predictive Modeling; Incremental Modeling; Random Forests; Logistic Regression; Neural Networks; Ensemble Methods; Machine Learning; Multi-Layer Perceptron; Inkrementell responsanalys; databehandling; prediktiv modellering; random forests; logistisk regression; neurala nätverk; mulit-layer perceptron; ensemble metoder; maskininlärning;

    Abstract : The desire to model the true gain from targeting an individual in marketing purposes has lead to the common use of uplift modeling. Uplift modeling requires the existence of a treatment group as well as a control group and the objective hence becomes estimating the difference between the success probabilities in the two groups.
