The Future of Digital Forensic Investigations: Keeping the Pace with Technological Advancements 
Digital forensics plays a crucial role in the justice system, providing digital evidence that can be used to prosecute and convict criminals. This field is rapidly evolving due to the increasing complexity of digital devices. These increasing complexities have presented new challenges for digital forensic investigators because the devices are now equipped with multiple processors, advanced operating systems, and complex security features making it more difficult to extract digital evidence. The challenges posed by technological advancements have led to several problems in the field of digital forensics, including Backlog of evidence, Quality of forensics investigations, and Credibility of digital evidence. The problems facing digital forensics have a significant impact on the justice system because a lack of reliable digital evidence can lead to miscarriages of justice, both for the accused and for victims of crime. The problems facing digital forensics have a wide-ranging impact on society because they can lead to the acquittal of criminals, erode trust in law enforcement agencies, and erode trust in the digital world. A comprehensive framework is proposed to address these challenges by emphasizing, Continuous Innovation, Collaboration, Training, and Awareness.

Unified Framework to Select an IoT Platform for PtX Cogeneration Plants 
This study is a systematic analysis of selected research articles about the Power-to-x (P2X) sector. The relevance of this resides in the fact that most of the world energy is made from fossil fuels, which has been led to a huge amount of greenhouse gas emissions that are the source of global warming. One of the most supported actions against this issue is to produce and use the renewable energy resources, some of which are intermittent like solar and wind. This brings the need for large-scale, longer-period energy storage solutions. In this sense, P2X process chain could play this role: renewable energy can be converted into storable hydrogen, chemicals and fuels via electrolysis and subsequent synthesis with CO2. The focus of this study is to highlight the main contributions that are using the advanced data driven methods and latest technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics and machine learning for the efficient operation of P2X cogeneration plants. In this case, one key challenge the industries face is the selection of an IoT platform among the hundreds of IoT platforms in the market. In this paper, we adapt our previously proposed general framework to choose an IoT platform focusing here on the requirements of P2X cogeneration plant. The proposed framework provides an objective methodology that can be used to select the most suitable IoT platform for different P2X cogeneration plant based on their particular requirements.

State-of-the-Art Machine Learning Frameworks for Training or Inference on Business Process Dataset 
Machine learning is being used to solve complex problems. With the recent emergence of machine and deep learning architectures, the number of available frameworks to choose from has also increased. The different frameworks have different strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure the highest accuracy of ML/DL models by choosing the right framework for the problem and the data. There are two main categories of frameworks. Those which are feature-rich and have been optimized for training, and those which are fast, lightweight, and have been optimized for inference. Training refers to the process of teaching a model to learn from the data it sees. Inference refers to the process of using a trained machine-learning algorithm to make a prediction. Business process data enables the monitoring of events related to the system and is an important source of information for future decisions. The public dataset from a business process that is ready to be processed by machine learning algorithms is used for research. This paper compares and evaluates the features and benefits of various frameworks for training or inference. In this paper, the important metrics are discussed when considering and choosing an ML/DL framework with regard to its limitations.

A Supervised Learning Method for Anomaly Classification in Cable Networks Based on SINR Patterns 
With the continuous expansion of communication networks, the number of electronic devices within these networks has grown substantially. As the number of devices and communication channels continues to rise, signal quality faces increasing threats, resulting in numerous network interruptions. This research paper is focused on cable network anomalies and the application of Machine Learning (ML) techniques to facilitate the maintenance of these networks. This study is based on real-world data collected from one of the largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that operates in Kosovo. This dataset is based on SINR (signal-to-interference plus noise ratio) values monitored during 100 different cases of outage incidents within the cable network. The SINR values are analyzed for each case, and factors that lead to such signal degradation are identified. The dataset also includes the necessary maintenance tasks that were required to address the outages. Using this dataset we apply a supervised learning technique to classify anomaly type by analyzing the SINR degradation patterns. The accuracy and reliability of the proposed method is tested using a separated part of the dataset.

Concept for Sharing Drone Data in Agricultural Data Ecosystem 
In recent years, drones have been making their way onto farms, but the challenge is still to make it an efficient work tool. These drones offer different applications, such as crop monitoring, pest identification or optimized fertilizer use. This paper introduces the formation of the drone concept, where the farmer collects data for his own use, but at the same time it creates the possibility to share and license data for the use of others. This enables the multi-use of data, in which case it creates a new business opportunity for the farmer and, on the other hand, also a new source of data for researchers or other data users to perform data analyses. The other parts of the concept, enables for example data sharing and visualization of authorized data, or sharing to closed community. Finally, the next steps of the concept have been considered, which would enable better discoverability and analysis of the data produced with this concept. The drone ecosystem in agriculture is not just about technology. It's a blend of technologies, data analysis, and sustainable farming practices.

Generative AI in E-maintenance: Myth or Reality? 
With increasing requirements for reliability, availability, efficiency, effectiveness, productivity and security of the system, the importance of diagnostics and maintenance is also increasing. E-maintenance as a leading concept for maintenance management has so far primarily involved the use of domain-specific technical language processing (TLP) techniques on historical case data. Due to its popularity, generative AI (GAI) with large language models (LLMs) is starting to be used more and more in various technical areas, thus starting to take an increasingly important place in diagnostics and maintenance. Starting from the fact that the rapid development of information and communication technologies (ICT) was the main factor in the emergence and development of the concept of e-maintenance, the importance of the potential more serious application of all forms of generative AI in the aforementioned context is clear. This is especially pronounced in cases of difficult or impossible access to the location of components or an uncertain situation related to the type of process (eg nuclear, aeronautical, space, offshore). Autonomous vehicles, vessels and aircraft, which are an indispensable part of today's intelligent transport systems, are certainly a leading example of these cases. Regardless of the level of autonomy, these systems are extremely complex and difficult to maintain and represent a clear challenge for the application of new approaches. Therefore, the authors of the paper propose the use of middleware that would enable the integration of various GAI tools, algorithms and models in order to increase the effectiveness of diagnostics and maintenance as close as possible to real time. However, the exact extent of the possibilities and limitations of this approach has yet to be determined.

Conventional Approach versus State-of-Charge Feedback for Lithium Titanate Battery Cell Charging – A Comparative Simulation Study 
Lithium-titanate currently represents state-of-the-art technology in lithium secondary batteries that is characterized by exceptional thermal stability and operational safety levels. This makes them particularly interesting for highly demanding stationary energy storage applications. In practical field operations, minimizing the recharging time from a partially discharged state is often crucial, while still adhering to technological constraints such as battery terminal voltage and continuous charging current. To address this, the present work outlines the design of a dynamic battery charging system, leveraging state-of-charge estimation obtained from a nonlinear state estimator, specifically an extended Kalman filter (EKF). The above approach is used to enhance the conventional constant current/constant-voltage charging system, which traditionally relies solely on battery voltage feedback. To evaluate the novel charging system performance, a comparative analysis is conducted through extensive simulations employing the nonlinear equivalent circuit model of the lithium titanate battery cell. The presented mathematical model can be successfully used in the design of digital twins of battery systems to augment the related charging strategies for electric vehicles (EVs) through straightforward retrofitting.

Collaborative Data Collection in Agriculture – Case Sub-Irrigation On-Farm Experiment 
Agriculture is increasingly data-intensive. As farmers aim for more informed decisions, they produce growing data volumes that are valuable for the wider farm data ecosystem, particularly in research. Data collection in on-farm experiments benefits the farmer by improving confidence in the experiment results but also provides researchers with data from production-scale environments. Artificial drainage systems can be used for sub-irrigation of crops in open-field farming, in addition to their original use. The effectiveness of this kind of irrigation depends on local soil characteristics and natural groundwater level patterns, necessitating on-site measurements. However, developing a monitoring system required for validating the effect of sub irrigation can be out of reach of an individual farmer. Over three years, a system for this purpose was collaboratively designed and built during a split-field experiment. This collaboration included the farmer, researchers, extension practitioners and companies. The system proved effective in validating the irrigation’s impact on groundwater levels. The experiment helped develop collaboration in the region and provided insight into the requirements and challenges of developing a farm data ecosystem. The system itself provides a basis for long-term monitoring and supports further research, including the use of the data in simulation and AI models for predictive analytics and optimization.

Estimating Household’s Physical Parameters Using Neural Ordinary Differential Equations 
Integrating renewable energy sources into power grids introduces challenges due to the decentralization and variability of power generation. Demand-side flexibility (DSF) is one solution for optimizing power consumption. Buildings in particular offer significant DSF potential due to their large thermal mass and controllable HVAC (Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems. Maximizing DSF benefits requires accurate energy consumption and heat demand prediction. Therefore, the development of robust thermal models for consumer/prosumer households that adhere to international energy standards, is needed. Thermal models are based on Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) and explain the thermal behavior in view of the household’s physical parameters, e.g. floor area or thermal capacity. Since measuring these parameters is often impractical, this paper introduces a novel approach for household’s parameters identification. Our methodology involves adapting the model’s ODEfor air temperature observations and enhancing param eter estimation through a comprehensive synthetic dataset. We then classify households into parameter ranges based on collected data, facilitating Neural ODEs training to fit measured temperatures to the ODE for parameter inference. The major contribution of our work is in providing a scalable solution that eliminates the need for individual parameter measurements, enhancing the feasibility of implementing DSF strategies in a broader context.

Digital Twin Models with ESG Methodology as a Tool for the Transformation of Cities in the Area of Transport and Energy 
Advances in transport technology and the transition from fossil to renewable energy sources have also changed the way the transport system and wider infrastructure is managed. This is most evident in cities due to their rapid growth. Scientists are trying to answer such new challenges through virtual mathematical models in which expert knowledge is integrated, all with the goal of more successful predictive management. Such mathematical models appear under the common name "digital twins". Digital twins are becoming an indispensable tool for creating enhanced virtual models of real-world applications, systems, and objects especially for AI-driven systems. With the accelerated technological development in the field of transport and energy, issues of accompanying technological investments with ESG (environmental, social, governmental) methodology were also raised. The application of digital twin technology with integrated ESG requirements opens new possibilities in decision-making support during the implementation of new transport and energy systems with an ecological background. This paper analyzes the possibilities of applying such new virtual models in the areas of transport and energy.
