Conceptualizing Blockchains

This multidisciplinary project explores the ideas and concepts behind specific blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies in society. We study how meanings and values are constructed, discussed, and applied in practice in journalism as well as in organizational communication.


Uuden sukupolven kaukolämpölaitos malli hiilineutraaliin yhdyskuntarakenteeseen - teollinen ekosysteemi energian ja ruuan tuotantoon perustuen paikallisiin raaka-aineisiin sekä kotitalousten ja tuotantolaitosten sivuvirtoihin

Hankkeen tavoitteena on luoda toimintamalli uuden sukupolven kaukolämpölaitokselle. Malli on suunnattu alueille, joilla on puupohjaista bioylijäämätuotantoa. Mallissa on keskeisenä ajatuksena yhdistää paikallista energian- ja ruuantuotantoa. Tuotantoa lähestytään laajalla kiertotalouden näkökulmalla ja energiatuotannon virtojen ja sivuvirtojen ympärille tunnistetaan ja mallinnetaan energian ja ruuan teollinen ekosysteemi.


SolarX - Maximizing PV integration capacity in energy and power systems

The aim of this project is to remove technical barriers of extensive solar power integration into power systems, as well as to enable easy access to the power markets for the new prosumers having local photovoltaic (PV) power generation.


Robust and Efficient Perception for Autonomous Things (REPEAT)

One of the grand challenges in artificial intelligence is to build machines that are able to perceive and navigate in complex environments. Typical applications of such systems include autonomous vehicles, service and manufacturing robots, drones, and augmented reality devices. The purpose of this project is to study computer vision methods for odometry, simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM), image based localization, 3D reconstruction, and object detection and pose estimation, which...

DISRUPTING THE MEDIA SCENE. Adopting emerging technologies as a vehicle for transforming the audience relationship and business models in journalistic media

The project focuses on the mechanisms through which digital technologies facilitate the transformation of journalistic media. Digital transformation and the rapid rise (and fall) of relevant technologies such as chatbots, automated journalism, live video platforms and social outreach apps challenge established journalism on several fronts.
