The new HaSuRiski project draws up risk maps of acid sulphate soils in Finland. Within the project, a prototype for a mobile application will be developed. The app uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to model the risk maps and will help experts plan land use in high-risk areas.
A speech recognition research project developing and testing AI algorithms that will recognise some of the different Swedish-speaking dialects across Finland has been launched by Arcada University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with Åbo Akademi University and StageZero Technologies.
Professor Roberto V. Zicari, founder of the Frankfurt Big Data Lab at Goethe University and leading the Z-Inspection® initiative, becomes one of Arcada’s affiliated professors. With the appointment, Arcada wants to further strengthen its focus on research in artificial intelligence, especially knowledge of ethical issues related to the field.
A new career center will begin operations in Arabianranta, Helsinki next week. Karriärcenter Arabia, which is launched by Arcada, Prakticum and Sveps, will offer versatile councelling services in Swedish for young people and adults.
Despite the fact that 2020 was an exceptional year with a transition to distance learning during the ongoing pandemic, a record number of students graduated from Arcada during the year. A total of 507 students completed their studies.
