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.

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. ...
An integrated modelling and learning framework for real-time online decision assistance in Swiss agriculture
We are developing an agricultural risk decision assistant based on a unique model that can assess and visualize reliable weather and seasonal climate forecasts, soil data, and crop growth forecasts. Based on real-time and historical weather, climate, soil and crop data and novel learning algorithms, the system calculates expected weather and ...
