The President visits EECS

Published Feb 25, 2019

On the 7th of March, KTH's President Sigbritt Karlsson will visit EECS to view presentations of some of all interesting research at our school. Points on the agenda are for example to get a deeper insight into energy systems of the future, listen to "soulless" music, meet robots and go to space.

During the day, three divisions will show examples of their latest research. Speech, music and hearing (TMH) begins by demonstrating and presenting the projects "Deep learning for conversational speech synthesis", "Face-to-face interaction with a social robot" and "Machine learning for folk music".

Division of Electric Power and Energy Systems (EPE) will then present the projects "Full-scale prototype of a new submodule for future modular multilevel converters" and "Modular Multilevel Converter Prototype". Finally, the division of Space and Plasma Physics (SPP) provides an in-depth insight into the projects "Electric fields measured in space" and "Presentation of the student satellite MIST".

After the three divisions’ presentations, the President will participate in a round table discussion with the Head of School's group.
