Adéu, Barcelona.

The sea through the train window

Well, I’m writing this from back home in Norway after a great summer in Barcelona! This time, I’ve decided not to write so much hard scientific stuff as before. For that, I refer back to my two previous posts one on

More on Deep Q networks

Nature cover

It’s time for another blog post apparently! Just as last time, I have decided to fill it with science! This time I will talk mostly about the “Deep Q Network” and the “Stochastic Gradient Descent” algorithm. These are all fairly

Artificial Brains for enhancing Crowd Simulations?!

A visualisation of a biological neural network.

Hi all, In my previous post I introduced myself and the SoHPC programme. Now it’s time for my project. Why Crowd Simulation? Throughout history, humankind has had a clear preference for grouping together in larger and larger groups. On the global scale, 54

Hybrid Monte Carlo Method for Matrix Computation on P100 GPUs

Project reference: 1701 The focus of this project will be on  enhancing further hybrid (e.g. stochastic/ deterministic) method for Linear Algebra. The focus is on Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo hybrid methods and algorithms for matrix inversion and solving systems

Monte Carlo and Deep Learning Methods for Enhancing Crowd Simulation

Project reference: 1702 Simulating realistic large scale crowd behaviours is a complex endeavour. The use of real data and realistic perception models is required. And once the behaviour is established, one must generate and animate varied characters for realistic visualization
