  1. 1. A Comparative Study of the Effect of Features on Neural Networks within Computer-Aided Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Mikael Kolanowski; David Stevens; [2019]
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease; computer-aided diagnosis; machine learning; artificial neural networks; Alzheimers sjukdom; datorstödd diagnos; maskininlärning; artificiella neuronnät;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that affects approximately 6% of the global population aged over 65 and is forecasted to become even more prevalent in the future. Accurately diagnosing the disease in an early stage can play a large role in improving the quality of life for the patient. READ MORE

  2. 2. Crime Prediction in Swedish Municipalities with machine learning algorithms

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Nils Dominguez Berndtsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Crime rates; machine learning algorithms; Random forest; K-NN; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : In this thesis we use a number of common machine learning algorithms to predict crime rates in Swedish municipalities. As predictors we use a mix of municipal socioeconomic variables. For some years we are able to correctly classify up to 85% of the municipalities that have a high crime rate. READ MORE

  3. 3. Baumol’s Cost Disease in the Second Machine Age

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Erik Nelsson; [2019]
    Keywords : unbalanced growth computerization digitization employment; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Baumol argued that technologically stagnant sectors with relatively low productivity growth over time will experience relatively higher prices and increased shares of total labor, and thereby slow aggregate growth. This theory, known as ‘the cost disease’, also claims that services, predominantly found in the public sector, generally are stagnant due to their perceived dependence on human labor as an input.

  4. 4. Implementation of an 8-bit Dynamic Fixed-Point Convolutional Neural Network for Human Sign Language Recognition on a Xilinx FPGA Board

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Ricardo Núñez-Prieto; [2019]
    Keywords : Artificial Intelligence; Computer Vision; Machine Learning; Convolutional Neural Networks; FPGA; Sign Language Recognition; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The goal of this thesis work is to implement a convolutional neural network on an FPGA device with the capability of recognising human sign language. The set of gestures that the neural network can identify has been taken from the Swedish sign language, and it consists of the signs used for representing the letters of the Swedish alphabet (a.k.a.

  5. 5. A Machine Learning-Based Statistical Analysis of Predictors for Spinal Cord Stimulation Success

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

    Author : Trolle Jacobson; Gustav Segerberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Machine Learning; Predictors; Spinal Cord Stimulation; SCS; Outcomes;

    Abstract : Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is a treatment for lumbar back pain and despitethe proven effcacy of the technology, there is a lack of knowledge in how the treatment outcome varies between different patients groups. Furthermore, since the method is costly, in the sense of material, surgery and follow-up time, a more accurate patient targeting would decrease healthcare costs. READ MORE
