  2. 2. The possibility of machine learning algorithms to explain long-run economic growth

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : Gabriel Ehrnst Grundin; Daniel Helldén; [2021]
    Keywords : Economic Growth; Machine Learning; ; Empirical Econometrics;

    Abstract : The empirical investigation of economic growth has been one of the most researched topics in economics. Most recently, machine learning algorithms that can handle nonlinearities, discontinuities and other issues inherent with traditional linear approaches have been proposed to be able to more accurately describe the empirical determinants of economic growth.

  3. 3. Long-term forecasting model for future electricity consumption in French non-interconnected territories

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : MATHIEU CARON; [2021]
    Keywords : Long-term forecasting; electricity demand; peak demand; energy planning; clustering analysis; artificial neural network; generalized additive model; Långsiktig prognostisering; elbehov; topplast; energiplanering; klusteranalys; artificiellt neuralt nätverk; generaliserad tillsatsmodell;

    Abstract : In the context of decarbonizing the electricity generation of French non-interconnected territories, the knowledge of future electricity demand, in particular annual and peak demand in the long-term, is crucial to design new renewable energy infrastructures. So far, these territories, mainly islands located in the Pacific and Indian ocean, relies mainly on fossil fuels powered facilities. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparing Resource Abundance And Intake At The Reda And Wisla River Estuaries

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Statistik och maskininlärning

    Author : Saman Zahid; [2021]
    Keywords : Reda and Wisla river estuaries; resource abundance; change in mass; multiple linear regression; generalized additive model; linear mixed effect model; Expectation-maximization; AIC;

    Abstract : The migratory birds stop at different stopover sites during migration. The presence of resources in these stopover sites is essential to regain the energy of these birds. This thesis aims to compare the resource abundance and intake at the two stopover sites: Reda and Wisla river estuaries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Birds' Flight Range. : Sensitivity Analysis.

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Brian Masinde; [2020]
    Keywords : Flight; Sensitivity Analysis; Sobol indices; meta-modelling; quasi-Monte Carlo method;

    Abstract : ’Flight’ is a program that uses flight mechanics to estimate the flight range of birds. This program, used by ornithologists, is only available for Windows OS. It requires manual imputation of body measurements and constants (one observation at a time) and this is time-consuming. READ MORE
