  1. 1. Development and characterization of tissue-mimicking phantom materials for photoacoustic imaging

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Chen Xu; [2019]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Tissue-mimicking phantoms are of great interest in the development of bio-medical applications. Instead of applying to biological tissues directly, phantoms enable stable and easy accessibility to validate spectroscopy systems and measuring processes. This thesis project is centered on the development and characterization of phantoms. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. Survival Analysis Using Time-Frequency Analysis of Heart Rate Variability During Exercise

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Carl Sjögren; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Heart rate variability as an indicator of increased morbidity has been established in previous studies. It is defined by different frequency bands, corresponding to different biological mechanisms. This thesis aims to study heart rate variability indices in the time-frequency domain through extraction from the UK Biobank dataset. READ MORE

  4. 4. PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS? A qualitative study investigating attitudes toward policy aimed at reducing meat consumption, especially a meat tax

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Daniel Burgos-Nyström; [2018-03-07]
    Keywords : beliefs; attitudes; meat tax; policy; cognitive dissonance; sustainable development;

    Abstract : In order to curb negative externalities from meat production and meat consumption policy measures have been investigated and were elaborated on by the Swedish board ofagriculture in 2013. Due to subsequent inaction despite increasing awareness of seriousconsequences for animal welfare, the environment and for human well-being caused by the meat industry, this thesis aims to investigate the grounds for political hesitancy.

  5. 5. Utveckling och test av en leverantörsportföljmodell för industriell virkesförsörjning

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Resource Management

    Author : Elin Andreasson; [2018]
    Keywords : portföljmodell; beslutstöd; scenarioanalyser; råvaruförsörjning;

    Abstract : Skogsindustrin klassas som en processtillverkandeindustri vilket gör att deras drift och vinst är helt beroende av tillgången och priset på råvaran. Det sätter stor press på inköpsenheten och även små procentuella förbättringar av råvaruförsörjningskostnaden gör en stor skillnad på företagets finansiella resultat. READ MORE
