A common thing to do at the department of Automatic control, where I work, is to write a Licentiate thesis halfway through the Ph.D. The Licentiate degree is an academic degree used as a “declaration of future research in the Ph.D.“. I plan to present in about a year, but the planning starts now. ItContinue reading “Planning for a Licentiate degree”
Some colleagues and I take the course Matrix Theory this semester. I will learn a lot, but it will take some hard work. Though I’m still not sure I can trust the book yet, it calls me a liar….
Few books that I read give me the feeling that they are written for me, but the book Mathematics for Machine Learning does. The book’s authors start from the basics and present advanced mathematical concepts in an understandable way. If you ever want to get “under the hood” of machine learning, I suggest you start here.
During the spring, I took a course in Cloud computing. The idea is to use cloud computing with BCI systems to make them faster and mobile. The overall concept of a cloud is that the service should more or less always be available. Availability means, among other things, that the service needs to scale accordingContinue reading “Cloud Course”
I visited my first conference this spring. I presented a poster (abstract and video) for an adaptive approach to the calibration of BCI systems. I was very nervous before it started, but it was great – so much inspiration and new ideas. Some thoughts that I bring to the next conference I visit: Don’t be afraid toContinue reading “vBCI – reflections”
So far during the summer, a colleague (Martin Gemborn Nilsson) and I have been working on setting up a real-time BCI system. We had our struggles, but in the end, we managed. We used Timeflux and Psychopy. The BCI system detects the user’s workload (“how hard is the user thinking”). To calibrate, the user does an n-back experiment where theContinue reading “Summer BCI project”
This week has, without a doubt, been one of my most productive weeks in a long time! I started the week with a lot of research, and the days just flew by. I plan to submit my work to a poster session in the BCI society later this year. I’m currently studying a setup for calibratingContinue reading “What a Week!”
The Christmas holidays are over for this year. I did not look forward to starting to work again. It turns out that it is quite nice to have a vacation. But now I have worked for a few days, and they have been some of my best in a while. I have had no meetings,Continue reading “Back to Business”
I got some wall decorations to put in my home office, which turned out to be a better improvement than I expected. I highly recommend you to do something similar!
The teaching for this semester has soon reached its end. As I have said before, I love teaching. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback for my webinars and for the labs I have supervised. Teaching has genuinely been one of the few glimpses of light in these dark Corona times. But more teaching willContinue reading “Preparations for more teaching”
