Bio-Inspired Modeling & Learning Systems
Introduction - Research and Teaching
We are concerned with design and development of adaptive systems for industrial and business applications, based on our expertise on machine learning, (recurrent) neural networks and bio-inspired algorithms as well as different simulation methods. A central speciality of our group is the development and research on complex (i.e. multi-methodical) forecasting systems. The polysemy of the term «LEARNING SYSTEMS» is an inherent element of the group’s spirit. Our self-concept as a team is the concept of a learning system. We are keen to learn more about new methods and more about ourselves in research and teaching. We are involved in teaching at Bachelor’s and Master’s level as well as continuing education and we actively work on the development of novel teaching methods to learn for our students and together with our students.

PiaBreed: Machine Learning for automated ovulation and birth monitoring in horses
The project comprises the tasks of a comprehensive data collection (Piavita/ University of Bern) and the development of a mobile, non-invasive system (Piavita/ZHAW) for veterinarians and breeders. The goal is to collect important vital data and to develop a new algorithm scheme with which - ovulation in mares can be reliably determined without ...
Fighting bites with bytes: Promoting public health with crowdsourced tick prevention
Ticks are on the rise and transmit several infectious diseases, leading to serious illness or even death. The smartphone App “Zecke–Tick Prevention helps people, to remember the tick bite location and to check it for potential Lyme disease symptoms. In an interdisciplinary approach, ZHAW-scientists want to find out more about spatial tick risks. ...
