Lunch lecture April hosted by Demcon

"Developing unbiased and excellent algorithms without real life data”

The availability of data is one of the limiting factors in algorithm development. And if data is not a bottleneck, bias in datasets causes bias in algorithms which is often not acceptable. Starting from physical principles and combining these with Hollywood animation-software it is possible to generate synthetically fully annotated sensor images for every object in every environment. This solves the problem of availability as well as the problem of bias in datasets and algorithms trained on them. We will give examples of various applications in Life Sciences & Health and High Tech.

Speaker: Marnix Zoutenbier, CTO Demcon Data Driven Solutions

This lecture will start at: April 8 on 12:02pm (Teams digital and only for members of the DSPE)

synthetically generated beans make it possible to identify individual beans with 100% accuracy.


Order of frictions and stiffnesses…

For lumped systems consisting of different frictions and stiffnesses, there has been confusion in literature about hysteresis curves and virtual play for many decades.
