AI important for future personalised care
An ageing population and limited resources pose major challenges. PhD student Alexander Galozy believes that artificial intelligence (AI) will play a significant role in the future to manage long-term illness, both for the care providers and the patients. Using AI could reduce workload and costs within healthcare and increase the autonomy of patients.

Students affected by the apartment fire are well given the circumstances
Last night, on April 7, there was a fire in a house at Östra stranden in Halmstad. Some of the residents in the apartment building are students at Halmstad University. Around 10 students have stated that they are registered at an address in the area. They have been contacted by the University and are doing well given the circumstances. However, there may be more students who are affected by the fire but who are not registered at an address in the area, and they are encouraged to contact the University.

Joint human-machine learning can improve district heating
By combining machine learning and human knowledge in self-monitoring and intelligent systems, failures and deviations can automatically be detected. Research at Halmstad University shows that when these systems are applied to district heating, money can be saved and the efficiency can be increased – leading to a more sustainable energy supply.

Agile organisations enable digital innovation
Previous research on agile organisations has mainly focused on large companies. At the same time, there is a tendency to highlight so-called start-ups as good examples. It is generally believed that larger companies have a lot to learn, especially when building a continuous digital innovation capability. In her research, Dulce Goncalves looks at start-up companies through an organisational lens to identify factors that promote or hinder their agile ability, so-called agility. The goal is to understand how start-up companies use agility to gain an advantage and enable digital innovation.

Improving surface quality for sustainable manufacturing
3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), has developed vastly over the past years and is already a well-used alternative when producing plastic and metal parts for a range of different products. However, there is still a great need for improving surface quality in order for 3D printing to eventually replace conventional manufacturing techniques and contribute to the necessary shift towards sustainable manufacturing. Amogh Vedantha Krishna, PhD student at Halmstad University and Chalmers University of Technology, has recently presented new research findings for surface improvement in additive manufacturing.
