Machine learning algorithms build a mathematical model based on training data, in order for the model to learn representative knowledge of the data and then employed the learnt knowledge in new data analysis and tasks. Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that also includes “deep learning” (neural networks).
NORCE has solid background and expertise in machine learning, e.g., artificial neural networks, support vector machine, hidden Markov model in classified machine learning, and convolution neural networks, recurrent neural networks in modern deep learning, and has applied them in different areas, e.g.,
Aquaculture: object detections from images/video, species classification, fish behavior analysis
Transportation: road surface condition monitoring
Industrial automation: metal casting quality assurance
Marine: object identification from acoustical marine data, underwater event recognition
Environment: plastic litter detection
Machine learning has made big advancements in several fields the last years, and with the deployment of IoT and the prevalence of smart sensors, machine learning will become more and more applicable for both small and large corporations and the public sector.
