Improving the effectiveness of speech recognition
How can you ensure that a computer understands exactly what someone is saying even if they cannot speak the language perfectly? In her quest to make this possible, Odette Scharenborg (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Studies) is researching automatic speech recognition.
‘Rapid development of LEDs offers all kinds of medical potential’
You can use ultraviolet light from LEDs to combat coronavirus. But it’s not as simple as commercial providers are presenting it right now, concludes Professor Guoqi Zhang. On the need for a sound scientific basis and the potential for LEDs in medical applications.
Firm ground for cloud datacentre planning
Just like the roads that provide access to them and the dikes that protect them, cloud datacentres have become an essential part of our national, and worldwide, infrastructure. Thanks to capacity planning research by TU Delft master’s student Georgios Andreadis, these datacentres may continue to meet the ever-growing computational demands while reducing their operational costs and increasing their efficiency and environmental sustainability.
Looking over Vermeer’s shoulders
In 2018, Johannes Vermeer’s world-famous Girl with a Pearl Earring underwent a total ‘body scan’: using state-of-the-art techniques, the painting was studied in painstaking detail from top to bottom. It provided a wealth of new insights about the painting and the painter. Four TU Delft faculties worked on the project.
New sensor chips: low-cost, smart and efficient
Imagine using a chip to analyse heart cells, or being notified by a smart plaster if your heart rate gets too high. These are two examples of research that Frans Widdershoven is working on. This fresh new pro-fessor is developing new smart sensors.
Travelling to a black hole
Black holes are one of the most remarkable phenomena in the universe. But what do they look like? And how can you depict something like this? Researcher Annemieke Verbraeck is developing a new simulation based on the Hollywood film Interstellar.
The urban puzzle of where to put a million solar panels
A million solar panels on the rooftops of Amsterdam? How do you get that done? Researcher Maarten Verkou figured it out.
Increased road safety with high-resolution automotive radar
If it is up to Cicero Vaucher, cars will be transformed into robots with the capability of sensing the environment, thinking, and acting autonomously.
So much more than 3D visualisation
Elmar Eisemann and Ruben Wiersma tell about how mathematics and computer graphics will enhance our perception of art.
Understanding noise – from quantum fluctuations to climate models
Mark Veraar researches mathematical models to reduce the disruptive influence of noise on all kinds of processes.
Smart data collected from grandmother’s living room
Chatting with family via a hologram or selecting your own camera angles for your favourite club’s football match. Computer scientist Pablo Cesar is researching how we can make these kinds of applications possible.
Protecting the electricity grid of the future
Marjan Popov is looking for ways to make the electricity grid more robust in the future.
