Incorporating Time-Of-Day Usage Patterns Into Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring

This month I found out that a conference paper I helped co-author with colleagues Chinthaka Dinesh and Ivan V. Bajić. Titled Time-Of-Day Usage Patterns Into Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring, it will be presented at the 5th IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing (GlobalSIP) this November in Montreal, Canada. Here is the paper abstract: Understanding appliance power consumption can help … Continue reading Incorporating Time-Of-Day Usage Patterns Into Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring

New position & lab @ SFU

A quick update: Last month, I accepted the position of Adjunct Professor in the School of Engineering Science where I was a Postdoctoral Fellow. This week, we opened our new lab focused on computational sustainability (visit http://compsust.fas.sfu.ca). The lab website will expand with more information over the coming months. One of the four main focus areas will be non-intrusive load monitoring … Continue reading New position & lab @ SFU

RAE Dataset Released!

Here is a brief summary: Datasets are important for researchers to build models and test how well their machine learning algorithms perform. This paper presents … Continue reading RAE Dataset Released!

Blog rebranding & more…​

It has been a while since I have blogged but today I decided to rebrand my blog to fit more closely to what my research is -- computational sustainability and more specifically non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM). NILM def. tries to discern what appliance are running (and how much they consume) within a building or house just using … Continue reading Blog rebranding & more…​

A competition for energy disaggregation algorithms | Jack Kelly

A message from my good friend and colleague Jack Kelly: Source: A competition for energy disaggregation algorithms | Jack Kelly Now that I've (finally!) submitted my PhD thesis, I can focus on designing and implementing a competition for energy disaggregation algorithms. EDF Energy have kindly given me post-doc funding from now until the end of … Continue reading A competition for energy disaggregation algorithms | Jack Kelly
