  1. 1. Samtal med den värdefulla naturen : Ett studium av miljöetiken hos Knud Lõgstrup, Holmes Rolston III och Hans Jonas

    Författare :Staffan Kvassman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Religion; Anthropocentrism; biocentrism; instrumental value; intrinsic value; value nihilism; objective value; correspondence theory; moral realism; absolute human dignity; deductive knowledge; inductive knowledge; cosmophenomenology; science; creation theology; sensation; disposition; appealing nature; interplay; Religionsvetenskap Teologi; Religion Theology; Religionsvetenskap Teologi; etik; Ethics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis has three aims. One aim is to explain and analyse the environmental ethics of Rolston, Jonas and Lögstrup. A second aim is to compare and criticize their environmental ethics. A third aim is to put forward a personal proposal for an acceptable formulation of a weakly biocentrical environmental ethic.

  2. 2. Machine learning for identification of brain activity patterns with applications in gentle touch processing

    Författare :Malin Björnsdotter Åberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Somatosensory; Machine learning; Pattern recognition; fMRI; Support vector machines; Neuroscience; Brain; BOLD; Signal processing; Artificial intelligence; Touch; Human; Unmyelinated; Sensory; Affective;

    Sammanfattning : Since the first mention of artificial intelligence in the 1950s, the field of machine learning has provided increasingly appealing tools for recognition of otherwise unintelligible pattern representations in complex data structures. Human brain activity, acquired using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), is a prime example of such complex data where the utility of pattern recognition has been demonstrated in a wide range of studies recently (Haynes et al.

  3. 3. Trust in Aesthetic Testimony

    Författare :Rebecca Wallbank; Elisabeth Schellekens-Dammann; Derek Matravers; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Trust; aesthetic testimony; aesthetic belief; Filosofi; Philosophy;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis has two main aims. The first is to examine the kinds of circumstances in which we form new aesthetic beleifs in light of deference to aesthetic testimony. The second aim is to examine some of the implications of forming aesthetic beliefs through deference to aesthetic testimony. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Securing Clock Synchronization in Industrial Heterogeneous Networks

    Författare :Elena Lisova; Mats Björkman; Christian Rohner; Mälardalens högskola; []

    Sammanfattning : Today, wireless solutions for industrial networks are becoming more and more appealing since they increase flexibility and enable the use of additional wireless sensors, but also bring such advantages as mobility and weight reduction. Wired networks, on the other hand, are reliable and, more importantly, already existing in most distributed control loops. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Coarse-Grained Models of Ionic Solutions

    Författare :Ryan Szparaga; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Monte Carlo; Classical Density Functional Theory; Coarse-Grained Models; Ionic Liquids; Prewetting; Capillary Condensation; Electric Double Layer; Differential Capacitance.;

    Sammanfattning : Room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are compounds composed entirely of ions, which are liquid at temperatures below 100 degrees Celsius. Their high ionic strength and strong coupling make them useful for a number of applications, e.g. as electrolytes in supercapacitors. LÄS MER
