Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden


Developments in machine learning (more commonly known as, ”artificial intelligence”) are going extremely fast. The availability of large amounts of data, ever increasing computing power, and ever more advanced algorithms makes that the sky seems to be the limit.

In this presentation a more down-to-earth summary of given of the status of the work in some areas. Examples presented include analysis of brain scans, driverless driving, and snow-coverage of transmission lines. Some of the existing challenges in automatic analysis of power-system data will be discussed as well.


Biography of the speaker:

Irene Yu-Hua Gu (M’94, SM’03) received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 1992. From 1992 to 1996, she was Research Fellow at Philips Research Institute IPO, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, post dr. at Staffordshire University, Staffordshire, U.K., and Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, Birmingham, U.K.

Since 1996, she has been with the Department of Signals and Systems (current name:

Dept. of Electrical Engineering), Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, where she is a full Professor since 2004. Her research interests include machine learning, statistical image and video processing, object tracking and video surveillance, biomedical image analysis, signal processing and big data analytics with applications to electric power systems.

Dr. Gu was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part A:

Systems and Humans, and Part B: Cybernetics from 2000 to 2005, an Associate Editor with the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing from 2005-2016. She was the Chair-elect of the IEEE Swedish Signal Processing Chapter from 2002 to 2004. She has been with the Editorial board of the Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments since 2011, and the editorial board with MDPI journal Sensors since 2018.

Dr. Gu is a senior IEEE member since 2003.

All are welcome.
