Le CERISIC, Centre d’étude et de recherche de la catégorie technique de la Haute Ecole Louvain en Hainaut, a organisé sa troisième après-midi scientifique ce jeudi 26 octobre 2017 entre 16h00 et 21h00. Deux sessions auront lieu en parallèle.
Session du pôle électricité/électronique :
Humans & Machines… & Engineers in between
Improving diagnostics accuracy is an obvious challenge in all fields of medicine. Nowadays the development of low-cost sensors makes possible a large-scale use of sensor-based devices in medical diagnostic/evaluation: Such devices are more and more used as a “third party” modifying the classical “Patient + Doctor”- scheme. The outcome of many measurements in this domain is a metric that can be related to some scale or threshold value (“Is your temperature greater than 38°C ?”). However, extracting relevant information from complex biological signals, like e.g. assessing the kind of pulmonary disease from the sound of a patient’s breath, demands more involved techniques related to pattern recognition, data mining and machine learning. Deep learning is one of the methods that can efficiently classify complex signals based on the construction of multiple level abstraction; it is therefore expected to play an important role in the future of clinical evaluation. As an example, related to physiotherapy, we will show how deep learning based on random forest algorithm may help to distinguish a normal, healthy walker and a walker who is perturbed by a galvanic vestibular stimulation, both kind of walks being hardly discriminated by any other approach.
It is easy to think about science and technology as an “expert-only” area of interest , a place where just a few have the ability to understand and contribute. But technology affects us all. Some very cutting-edge research in digital media has made its way into becoming completely pervasive in our lives. Funnily enough, we think exactly the same about arts, design and creative work: some sorts of elite disciplines, as in fact it shapes most of what surrounds us. This talk browses a 15-year journey between high-tech, the arts and creativity, a journey that led to the creation of Hovertone, a startup that pushes the boundaries of our imagination, by keeping humans at the center of the design process.
Presenting a cognitive science focus on human-machine teaming, this talk will sample the latest research efforts and challenge the audience to consider such topics as: “When should a machine (computer, plane, car, spaceship, etc.) trust a human?” “Should human-machine teaming be taking a Turing Test approach in design engineering?” and “How should we define and measure team and trust in these domains?”
Session du pôle électromécanique/thermique :
Confort hygrothermique et systèmes €nergétiques de demain
L’intervention débutera par une mise en contexte de l’utilisation de la pompe à chaleur comme source d’énergie renouvelable pour ensuite détailler l’expertise du CERISIC dans ce domaine. Par après nous aborderons 2 projets concrets de pompes à chaleur sur lesquels le CERISIC a pu collaborer pour enfin clôturer par quelques conclusions et perspectives d’avenir.
Quand ? Le jeudi 26 octobre 2017 de 16h00 à 21h00.
Où ? Campus HELHa, 159, chaussée de Binche 7000 Mons.
Un prix ? 25 euros.
