Bayesian analysis of risk- and ambiguity aversion in two information sampling tasks
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2020-07)
Humans are aversive to risk (irreducible uncertainty) and ambiguity (reducible uncertainty). However, strong ambiguity aversion does not necessarily imply strong risk aversion. Further, in real life it can be challenging to attribute uncertainty and one may treat ambiguity as risk. This can lead to biases in information sampling, i.e. premature stopping of collecting information that could ...
Novel bio-compatible tracers for Positron Emission Particle Tracking
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2020-09)
To study the flow of objects (tracers) in opaque flow processes, the PEPT (positron emission particle tracking) technique is utilized. The PEPT technique is based on the same principle of PET (positron emission tomography) which detects the characteristic back-to-back gamma pairs caused by positron-electron annihilation. The annihilation takes place within a few millimeters around the tracers labeled ...
Electrospinning of chloramphenicol-containing nanofibrous dressings for treatment of chronic wounds
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2021-03-10)
<p><i>Background</i> An efficient treatment is crucial to overcome the delayed healing process and high infection rate in chronic wounds. Nanofibrous dressings, having a nano‐sized fiber structure, can enhance cell ingrowth and support the healing process. In addition, nanofibers can deliver active ingredients e.g. antibiotics into the wound to treat wound infection. By incorporating broad‐spectrum ...
The Marine Natural Product Mimic MHP88 Shows Anticancer Activity and has the Potential to Cause Immunogenic Cell Death
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2020-03)
The marine natural product mimic MHP 88 is a novel synthetic molecule based on unique structures found in molecules from an arctic marine bryozoan. Initial studies showed that MHP88 kills cancer cells efficiently, but is not hemolytic. In this study, we look closer at the mode of death induced by MHP88 in oral cancer (HSC-3) and lymphoma (Ramos) cell lines. Immunogenic cell death (ICD) is a mode of ...

On the Use of Time Series Kernel and Dimensionality Reduction to Identify the Acquisition of Antimicrobial Multidrug Resistance in the Intensive Care Unit
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2021)
The acquisition of Antimicrobial Multidrug Resistance (AMR) in patients admitted to the Intensive Care Units (ICU) is a major global concern. This study analyses data in the form of multivariate time series (MTS) from 3476 patients recorded at the ICU of University Hospital of Fuenlabrada (Madrid) from 2004 to 2020. 18% of the patients acquired AMR during their stay in the ICU. The goal of ...
Chemical and Enzyme-Assisted Extraction of Fucoidan from two Species of Brown Macroalgae (Ascophyllum nodosum and Saccharina latissima)
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2022)
Macroalgae are vital species and are known to produce a wide range of bioactive compounds including polysaccharides, such as fucoidan. Traditionally, these compounds are extracted using hazardous solvents that leads to environmental pollution and waste. Considering this, more sustainable technologies are being investigated as greener alternatives.<p> <p>The main goal of this study was to ...
Spillbasert læring: motivasjon for å ta i bruk ny teknologi
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2023-03)
Spillbasert læring bruker prinsipper fra spill for å engasjere og motivere studenter i sin læring. I kombinasjon med innsikter om effektive læringsstrategier kan spillbaserte læringsressurser sikre både motivasjon til å lære og en effektiv læringsprosess. En forutsetning for å lykkes med introduksjon av ny teknologi generelt og spillbaserte læringsressurser spesifikt er at teknologien aksepteres av ...
The blind leading the blind? Filling the knowledge gap by student peer assessment
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2023-03)
Prior knowledge in certain mathematical topics is essential for fundamental understanding of most STEM subjects, and closing the gap from secondary education is a prerequisite for success. The teacher's dilemma in higher education is the time dedicated to teaching secondary level maths versus the course's actual curriculum. To close the knowledge gap for a group of PhD students at the Faculty of ...
Cancer detection for white urban Americans
(Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2023-06)
Development, validation and comparison of machine learning methods require access to data, sometimes lots of data. Within health applications, data sharing can be restricted due to patient privacy, and the few publicly available data sets become even more valuable for the machine learning community. One such type of data are H&E whole slide images (WSI), which are stained tumour tissue, used in ...
