  1. 1. Forecast-based Humanitarian Action and Conflict : Promises and pitfalls of planning for anticipatory humanitarian response to armed conflict

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Teologiska institutionen

    Author : Loic Hostetter; [2019]
    Keywords : humanitarian; humanitarian action; international aid; forecast-based financing; forecast-based action; humanitarian aid; international humanitarian aid; FbF; FbA; anticipatory humanitarian action; Loic Hostetter; German Red Cross; Red Cross Movement; Start Fund; Start Network; early warning; early warning system; anticipatory humanitarian response; EWS; FbA;

    Abstract : Practitioners of Forecast-based Action (FbA) argue that a humanitarian response able to utilize forecasts to accurately predict disaster, secure funding, and take action before the onset of a crisis will benefit donors and beneficiaries alike. In search of effective and efficient early-action regimes, a number of major humanitarian actors are developing FbA projects of various designs, predominantly in response to natural disaster and famine.

  2. 2. Transit Oriented Development assessment of Handen Pendeltåg Station

    University essay from KTH/Urbana och regionala studier

    Author : Cristina Covelli; [2019]
    Keywords : Transit Oriented Development TOD ; sustainable mobility patterns; land mix-use; densifying; walking; cycling; connect; shift; railway station; Handen.;

    Abstract : Transit Oriented Development theoretical and practical framework represents an important tool for municipalities, private actors and citizens to enhance quality of life in urban contexts. Planning cities that encourage sustainable mobility patterns can contribute to aim at diversifying land use and making cities more accessible, safer and attractive for people. READ MORE

  3. 3. Learning Phantom Dose Distribution using Regression Artificial Neural Networks

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för beräkningsvetenskap

    Author : Mattias Åkesson; [2019]
    Keywords : machine learning; artificial neural network; convolutional neural network; quality assurance; radiation therapy;

    Abstract : Before a radiation treatment on a cancer patient can get accomplished the treatment planning system (TPS) needs to undergo a quality assurance (QA). The QA consists of a pre-treatment (PT-QA) on a synthetic phantom body. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transfer Learning for Sales Volume Forecasting Using Convolutional Neural Networks

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

    Author : Marcus Alsterman; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Improved time series forecasting accuracy can enhance demand planning, and therefore save money and reduce environmental impact. The idea behind this degree project is to explore transfer learning for time series forecasting. This has boiled down to two concrete goals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Automating synthetic trip data generation for an agent-based simulation of urban mobility

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Paul Dos Santos; [2019]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; Agent-based Modelling; Simulation Science; Network Modelling; Simulation of Urban Mobility; Emissions; Environmental Modelling; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This paper explores the use of an automated pipeline to construct synthetic (artificially derived) trip data from aggregate socio-demographic sources to build a simulation of individual vehicles interacting with one another. The study shows that quality data sources are required in order to do this effectively and accurately. READ MORE
