Distributed Energy Resources in Local Integrated Energy Systems, Optimal Operation and Planning, 2021, Pages 1-29

This book chapter advances SDG 7 by surveying literature concerning the use of distributed energy resources in the context of local energy systems, including the deployment of local solutions to generate, store, and manage energy at small scale and micro-scale; grid-related aspects and solutions for optimal grid operation; and finally emergent aspects referring to local energy systems, markets and energy communities, which are gaining relevance in the present and future context of energy transition.
John McConnell, Editor of The Lancet Infectious Diseases on COVID-19 vaccine safety and confidence
Background: Hippocampus segmentation on magnetic resonance imaging is of key importance for the diagnosis, treatment decision and investigation of neuropsychiatric disorders. Automatic segmentation is an active research field, with many recent models using deep learning. Most current state-of-the art hippocampus segmentation methods train their methods on healthy or Alzheimer's disease patients from public datasets. This raises the question whether these methods are capable of recognizing the hippocampus on a different domain, that of epilepsy patients with hippocampus resection.
