Feature engineering in machine learning

Article | April 24, 2020

Feature engineering is the process of extracting new variables by transforming raw data to improve the predictability of a machine learning model. But feature engineering is not just this kind of simple translation of categories like names or colors into numbers. The following section includes a collection of different kinds of engineering approaches that go beyond a translation of categories into numbers and address needs such as transforming numbers into categories or filtering data points due to missing or false data.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | April 8, 2021

Over the past 120 years, there has been a production of millions of machine parts and products worldwide. However, few of these products are still relevant over the years because of the technological advancement, but lots of old parts used in machines are still in use. When a part breaks down or malfunctions, it is usually replaced using a process known as reverse engineering. There are many things that can be learned from a machine or software, just from reverse engineering. This is because the concept behind the reverse engineering process is to break something down to help understand it, and the engineer can then build a copy or try to improve it. Furthermore, there is a need for a reverse engineering design process as the technology advances to ensure the existing manufacturing systems’ continuity. Reverse engineering is an important process for everybody as we will be forced to replace entire machines without it. In this article, we will break down everything you need to know about reverse engineering, from reverse engineering to reverse engineering processes.

ICE STEM Ambassadors help to inspire the next generation

Article | April 23, 2020

Andy Magee is a Senior Civil Engineer at Leeds City Council and ICE Yorkshire & Humber’s STEM Ambassador of the Year. STEM outreach is crucial, says Andy. Firstly to better inform the next generation of the opportunities available to them, but also to the civil engineering industry which is facing a potential skills shortage in the future. Outreach work helps us to grow the potential engineers of tomorrow and equip them with the skills needed for an ever-changing world of work – in being able to find and convey innovative ideas and solutions for example.

Lake Zug East: Switzerland's Longest Construction Site Completed

Article | July 30, 2021

ntil recently, the infrastructure measures at Lake Zug East were the longest construction site in Switzerland. The 15-kilometer-long project has since been successfully completed after 20 months of construction. Not only has the full closure – which was necessary for economic and environmental protection reasons – been lifted, but one of the important access routes to the Gotthard Tunnel has also been completed. The fact that this could be done without any problems and delivered on schedule despite Coronavirus is due to the work of Emch+Berger WSB AG. The engineering firm was commissioned by the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) to undertake the planning, overall project management, and construction management. The planning was based on a BIM model in Allplan Engineering.
