George has been successful in a prestigious NERC proposal entitled “Engineering Transformation for the Integration of Sensor Networks”, in collaboration with the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and the Engineering Department of Oxford University. The project is part of the Constructing a Digital Environment call, and has initially secured funding for one year. However the whole programme spans until 2022, with subsequent calls to be announced within 2019, offering the opportunity to apply for additional funding to continue the project into a Phase 2. The total amount secured is in the region of £363,000 (~£295,000 at 80% of fEc), with about a third of it coming to Lincoln.
A very nice article about the funded project “The Development of Dynamic Energy Control Mechanisms for Food Retailing Refrigeration Systems” we are participating to.
A paper entitled “Optimising remedial outcomes for Gas Turbines through large scale data analysis” has been accepted and presented by our MSc by Research student Jason McGinty. The paper related to a project that investigates faults in Gas Turbines in collaboration with Siemens Lincoln. Dr Georgios Leontidis, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, and professor Stefanos Kollias have been supervising the project.
Paper entitled “An adaptable deep learning system for optical character verification in retail food packaging” has been accepted in the International Conference on Evolving and Adaptive Intelligent Systems. Our PhD student Fabio De Sousa Ribeiro presented the paper, which attracted much attention and very positive comments.
Recently, professor Stefanos Kollias, was invited to give a lecture at the University of Lincoln, spanning his career and contribution to the machine learning and AI fields. It was a great evening, very well attended with some interesting discussions taking place at then end and after the lecture finished. The Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University, professor Andrew Hunter, opened and closed the lecture.
