Working remotely and in hybrid work arrangements is the future. This research is focused on developing the “Futures of Hybrid work.” We will design and develop artefacts and processes to support organizations in exploring and preparing for successful collaboration in the future. In particular we will focus on the role and representation of embodiment, artefact interaction, and physical surroundings in a digital/analog setting.
The centre operates Bridge projects, which are joint research / development / innovation projects between universities, companies, the public sector and GTS institutes with the aim of increasing the capacity within digitization and innovation in companies.
When developing novel IoT services or products today, it is essential to consider the potential security implications of the system and to take those into account before deployment. Due to the criticality and widespread deployment of many IoT systems, the need for security in these systems has even been recognised at the government and legislative level, e.g., in the US and the UK, resulting in proposed legislation to enforce at least a minimum of security consideration in deployed IoT products.
Embedded AI will revert the current AI processing flow from collecting data at the edge and processing it at the cloud, to a flow where AI algorithms are migrated from the cloud to a distributed network of AI enabled edge-devices, which will increase responsiveness and functionality, reduced data transfer, and increased resilience, security, and privacy.
In this project, we will combine knowledge and experience in human-robot interaction, AI for multi-robot control, and business innovation to develop novel methods for human-swarm interaction. The methods will be evaluated in concrete case studies directly relevant to the industrial partners and their target markets.
Most research in medical AI never makes it to the clinic. We aim to create more clinically useful AI and increase technology acceptance among clinicians by establishing Human-AI collaboration as a target that can be optimized similarly to predictive performance. In terms of explainable AI, this deﬁnes a shift from researching what we can explain to also researching how we explain it well.
Business processes in private companies and public organisations are today widely supported by Enterprise Resource Planning, Business Process Management and Electronic Case Management systems, put into use with the aim to improve efficiency of the business processes.
Business processes in private companies and public organisations are today widely supported by Enterprise Resource Planning, Business Process Management and Electronic Case Management systems, put into use with the aim to improve efficiency of the business processes. Recently, also blockchain technologies are being proposed as a means to provide guarantees for security, computational integrity and pseudonymous agency.
The mobility of people and things is an important societal process that facilitates and affects the lives of most people. Thus, society, including industry, has a substantial interest in well-functioning outdoor and indoor mobility infrastructures that are efficient, predictable, environmentally friendly, and safe.
Today, the manual visual inspection of grain is still one of the most important quality assurance procedures throughout the value chain of bringing cereals from the field to the table. In order to improve performance, robustness and consistency of this inspection, there is a need for automated imaging-based solutions to replace subjective manual inspection.
The rapidly growing application of machine learning techniques in Cyber-Physical Systems leads to better solutions and products in terms of adaptability, performance, efficiency, functionality and usability. However, Cyber-Physical Systems are often safety critical (e.g., self-driving cars or medical devices), and the resulting need for verification against potentially fatal accidents is self-evident and of key importance.
SciTech and explore projects
In addition to the bridge projects, the centre operates with SciTech projects, which are strategic research projects with the purpose of building up research and education capacity at the universities and Explore projects, which are small agile research projects with the purpose to quickly screen new ideas.
