Jawad Essallami (HvA): Eddy Lite
The global transport makes for about 25% of our daily energy use. But what is the best way to use less energy in transport? It would help to make our vehicals lighter by using carbon composite. This is a very strong and light weight material, used more and more in the Aerospace, Automotive and Sustainable Energy industry.
Inspection of carbon composite during manufacturing, maintenance and while in use is essential for safety requirements. Eddy lite provides a sustainable solution for the next generation of carbon composites, by making it possible to check the quality of carbon in a non-destructive way. We use high-precision sensing technique and measurement technology. Eddy Lite is able to inspect carbon composite precisely and faster with easy to use equipment. In the future we want to scale up, to be able to inspect larger carbon constructions in one run. This would not only save time and costs, but also dramatically reduce Co2 emissions.
Sem Vijverberg (VU): Long-lead time predictions of weather and its impact using AI Our society is vulnerable to weather variability and extremes. Think of energy consumption and production, potential crop failures, forest fires, etcetera. Climate change can make weather more extreme, and at the same time we become more and more reliant on renewable energies. […]
Tiago Matos (Amsterdam UMC): Dermoscope We developed a scientific-based app capable to quickly identify which personal care products are safe and effective for each specific individual’s skin type. We use on average 10 PCPs daily, that means more than 500 different chemicals that we put in our skin every day. Many products still contain dangerous […]
