Researchers test Artificial Intelligence solution for near real-time classification of epileptic seizures

Description
A team of researchers from INESC TEC and the University of Munich tested a solution to classify seizures, the main symptom of epilepsy, using infrared radar and 3D videos. The study presents an innovative approach, which is the first to consider near-real time classification from two second samples, showing the feasibility of a system to support diagnosis and monitoring process (based on action recognition) that uses deep learning; it allows distinguishing between frontal and temporal lobes seizures (the two most common classes of epilepsy), or non-epileptic events. The results of this research were recently published by Nature Scientific Reports.

INESC TEC researcher wins international Merit Award from EDP Labelec thanks to her thesis, which improves the predictability of renewable electricity production

Description
At the age of 30, Carla Gonçalves won the first edition of the international EDP Labelec Merit Award 2022 for best PhD thesis, thanks to her work "Renewable Energy Forecasting – Extreme Quantiles, Data Privacy and Monetization". The researcher at the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) developed mathematical models that allow reducing errors in predicting the production of renewable-based electricity, contributing to increase the renewable energy sources in the power grid.

INESC TEC will promotes a discussion on "Accelerating the decarbonisation of the economy"

Description
Which and how much investment must be made to support clean energy? What is the geographical scale that will lead to a smaller climate dependence? How far is Europe from adopting a policy that does not just consider the interests of individual nations? These are some of the topics that will be addressed at the seventh edition of the INESC TEC Autumn Forum, promoted by the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC). This year, the event focuses on issues related to the energy transition and how the environment, energy, and the economy interconnect. Governments, researchers, and entrepreneurs will discuss technical, regulatory, and environmental solutions to help define public policies that promote the decarbonisation of the economy.
