ML4GE – Machine Learning for Green Energy

Project Description   MARKET NEED ML4GE explores machine learning techniques to analyse smart-meter data. The idea is to use deep learning based clustering approaches to find similar energy consumption patterns and to put these similar patterns in the same group or cluster and then use these patterns to forecast total demand for each cluster. Recently smart meters have been widely deployed in many countries. These devices replace conventional electrical meters and are able to provide measurements for time intervals of typically less than one hour and can send these to the utility. This technology provides utilities a large amount of data

AI for Bill Reduction

Project Description MARKET NEED AI for Bill Reduction investigates the use of AI for the task of optimising energy usage in both commercial and domestic settings. The idea is to use reinforcement learning (RL), given the potential it has shown in solving complex optimisation problems. Businesses have several incentives to reduce energy consumption. Lower consumption means lower energy bills and saved money. This is especially relevant to high consumption sectors such as manufacturing and heavy industry, and given the fact that most of the world’s energy is still produced from fossil fuel sources, reduced consumption also helps to combat climate change

KnowText: Knowledge graphs for semantic enrichment of text corpora

MARKET NEED There is an information overload from unstructured text used as business leads (knowledge on customers, markets  or technologies) from which users need to find the Facts:  the relevant Entities, the Links between Entities and their evolution. Extracting practical information from text is a complex task requiring human understanding of semantics. The Knowledge Graph (KG) technologies bring a competitive edge as part of the Semantic Web. KGs can capture the network of Relationships between Entities in a graph structure, while also building a Knowledge Base (KB), designed to enable automated reasoning. Existing open-access industrial knowledge graphs have mapped billions of entities from large scale web

Trading with Reinforcement Learning

Project Description Market Need Although a research area since at least the 1980s, RL has recently attracted interest due to breakthroughs such as Deepstack, a recent algorithm able to defeat professional poker players or an algorithm from DeepMind which is claimed to reduce the energy bill of Google data centres by 40%. However, RL can be complex and challenging to understand. The application we created is aimed at making RL technology more accessible to industry. Our application explains in a friendly and understandable way how DQN and its main parameters work. Since the benefits of RL are potentially enormous, the
