    Author : Hugo Ekström; [2022]
    Keywords : Radical right populism; immigration; criminality; political communication; Facebook; normalization; discursive shifts; moral panic; imaginaries; borderline discourse;

    Abstract : In the last decade, we have witnessed a new stage in the mainstreaming and normalization pro­cess of populist radical right policies and ideas in the Western world. This has resulted in in­creasing politicization of issues related to immigration. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reducing the environmental impact of new neighbourhoods during early planning stages using life cycle analysis (LCA) : Towards effective decision support tools for settlements projects

    University essay from KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Author : Pierrick Francois Gervasi; [2022]
    Keywords : district LCA; residential neighbourhood; EPD; Urban Print; urban; modelling; normalization; weighing; planet boundaries.;

    Abstract : Since the first warnings on the limits of planet Earth, 50 years ago, policies havenot been sufficient and fast enough to create a more sustainable world, which is todayillustrated by climate change, an increase in resource scarcity, and tremendousbiodiversity loss. Cities have been playing an important role in those environmentalconsequences, today accounting for 60% of greenhouse gases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis of Electricity Usage Time Series with K-means Clustering

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Elektricitetslära

    Author : Göran Iliev; [2022]
    Keywords : electricty usage; office; residential; time series; clustering;

    Abstract : As the amount of collected and analysed data for electricity usage from buildings is increasing it becomes an important component in energy efficiency efforts. A huge problem when developing algorithms fordetection of anomalous electricity usage series is the lack of data setswith annotated normal usage series for training and evaluation purposes.

  5. 5. Use of Stochastic Switching in the Training of Binarized Neural Networks

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

    Author : Svante Åkesson; [2022]
    Keywords : Machine Learning BNN Binarized Neural Network Deep Learning Convolutional Batchnormalization Stochastic Switching Training Gradient Accumulation Undo Binary Weights Memristor FTJ Hardware; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Most prior research into the field of Binarized Neural Networks (BNNs) has been motivated by a desire to optimize Deep Learning computations on traditional hardware. These methods rely on bit-wise operations to drastically decrease computation time, however to address the resulting loss in accuracy it is common practice to reintroduce continuous parameters and train using batch normalization.
