Deep multimodal learning for residential building energy prediction

The residential sector has become the second-largest energy consumer since 1987 in the UK. Approximately 24 million existing dwellings in England made up over 32% of the overall energy consumption in

Energy consumption modelling analysis of prefabricated buildings based on KPCA-WL SSVM

The energy consumption of prefabricated buildings under multi-layer building materials system is affected by different weight factors. In order to improve the level of energy consumption

Explanatory Optimization of the Prediction Model for Building Energy Consumption

Traditional prediction models, which are based on artificial neural networks (ANNs), consider the various factors affecting building energy consumption comprehensively. However, their explanatory

Symbolic regression analysis of interactions between first trimester maternal serum adipokines in pregnancies which develop pre-eclampsia

Symbolic regression identified non-linear interactions between Lp, sLR and Re concentrations in first trimester pregnancy serum of pregnancies which later developed PE, which suggest new pathophysiological pathways and may help in designing more efficient screening protocols for PE.

On the surplus accuracy of data-driven energy quantification methods in the residential sector

It is found that data-driven methods positively influence cause–effect relationships, compensating for deficits due to auditors’ lack of expertise, leading to high prediction accuracy.

Measurement of China’s Building Energy Consumption from the Perspective of a Comprehensive Modified Life Cycle Assessment Statistics Method

This paper proposes a new life cycle assessment (LCA) statistics method to calculate the energy consumption of Chinese buildings from the perspective of LCA under the sustainable supply chain system.

The Human’s Comfort Mystery—Supporting Energy Transition with Light-Color Dimmable Room Lighting

The constant increase of intermittent renewable energies in the electricity grid complicates balancing supply and demand. Thus, research focuses on solutions in demand-side management using energy



A Holistic Framework for AI Systems in Industrial Applications

A generic conceptual model of an AI system for the application in manufacturing systems and a four-phase model to guide developers and project managers through the realization of AI systems are developed.

Evaluating the Quality of Machine Learning Explanations: A Survey on Methods and Metrics

A comprehensive overview of methods proposed in the current literature for the evaluation of ML explanations is presented, finding that the quantitative metrics for both model-based and example-based explanations are primarily used to evaluate the parsimony/simplicity of interpretability, and subjective measures have been embraced as the focal point for the human-centered evaluation of explainable systems.

Benchmarking Energy Quantification Methods to Predict Heating Energy Performance of Residential Buildings in Germany

Compared with and validated by real-world Energy Performance Certificates of German residential buildings issued by qualified auditors using the engineering method required by law, it seems appropriate to revise the current legislation prescribing engineering methods to reflect the higher prediction accuracy of data-driven methods.

Better Metrics for Evaluating Explainable Artificial Intelligence

Objective metrics for how explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) can be quantified are presented and it is suggested that user studies that focus on these metrics in their evaluations are inherently more valid and should be integrated in future XAI research.

Combining symbolic regression with the Cox proportional hazards model improves prediction of heart failure deaths

Symbolic regression is a way to find transformations of covariates from patients’ medical records which can improve the performance of survival regression models and are intuitive and easy to apply in clinical settings.

How to Conduct Rigorous Supervised Machine Learning in Information Systems Research: The Supervised Machine Learning Report Card

This article aims to provide the IS community with guidelines for comprehensively and rigorously conducting, as well as documenting, SML research, and contributes to a more complete and rigorous application and documentation of SML approaches, thereby enabling a deeper evaluation and reproducibility / replication of results in IS research.

A Survey on the Explainability of Supervised Machine Learning

This survey paper provides essential definitions, an overview of the different principles and methodologies of explainable Supervised Machine Learning, and a state-of-the-art survey that reviews past and recent explainable SML approaches and classifies them according to the introduced definitions.
