  1. 1. Modelling Mosquito Prevalence on a City-Scale in Gothenburg, Sweden. A Methodological Development Study

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Ville Stålnacke; [2021-06-14]
    Keywords : Culex pipiens; Weighted Multi-Criteria Analysis; mosquito suitability; Species Distribution Model; city-scale;

    Abstract : Mosquitoes are one of the most prominent carriers (or vectors) of diseases worldwide, whichhas an impact on human societies, as up to 1 million people pass away each year from mosquitorelated diseases. Mosquitoes are known carriers of, e.g., malaria, dengue fever and West Nilevirus. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling rare events using non-parametric machine learning classiers - Under what circumstances are support vector machines preferable to conventional parametric classiers?

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Lukas Ma; [2021-04-06]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Rare event modelling is an important topic in quantitative social science research. However, despite the fact that traditional classiers based upon general linear models (GLM) might lead to biased results, little attention in the social science community is devoted to methodological studies aimed at alleviating such bias, even fewer of them have considered the use of machine learning methods to tackle analytical problems imposed by rare events.

  3. 3. The Tower: Design of Distinct AI Personalities in Stealth-Based Games Modeling personalities with believable and consistent behaviour for NPCs in games using stealth gameplay style

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Marek Cernák; Lianoudakis Orestis; [2021-03-03]
    Keywords : stealth gameplay; games research; AI; NPC; autonomous agents; personality modeling; thesis;

    Abstract : Computer games using stealth situations for defining their gameplay often rely onmodeling an immersive, yet exploitable non-player character behaviour. Traditionally, the aim of the design of such a behaviour is to provide players with memorablebehaviour patterns of the in-game agents in order to facilitate the means of devisingstrategies used by players to finish the game levels.

  4. 4. Option Modelling by Deep Learning

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Niclas Klausson; Victor Tisell; [2021-02-10]
    Keywords : Deep learning; deep hedging; generative adversial networks; arbitrage pricing;

    Abstract : In this thesis we aim to provide a fully data driven approach for modelling financial derivatives, exclusively using deep learning. In order for a derivatives model to be plausible, it should adhere to the principle of no-arbitrage which has profound consequences on both pricing and risk management. READ MORE

  5. 5. A comparison of different machine learning algorithms applied to hyperspectral data analysis

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Axel Vikström; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Hyperspectral image analysis works with image data where each pixel contains hundreds of wavelengths acquired from spectral measurements. It is a growing field of research in the sciences and industries because it can distinguish visually similar objects. READ MORE
