  • Active Estimation of Object Dynamics Parameters with Tactile Sensors 

    Saal, Hannes; Ting, Jo-Anne; Vijayakumar, Sethu (2010)
    The estimation of parameters that affect the dynamics of objects—such as viscosity or internal degrees of freedom—is an important step in autonomous and dexterous robotic manipulation of objects. However, accurate and ...
  • Active Filtering for Robot Tactile Learning 

    Saal, Hannes; Ting, Jo-Anne; Vijayakumar, Sethu (2009)
  • Active Learning - An Explicit Treatment of Unreliable Parameters 

    Becker, Markus (2008-06-24)
    Active learning reduces annotation costs for supervised learning by concentrating labelling efforts on the most informative data. Most active learning methods assume that the model structure is fixed in advance and focus ...
  • Active sequential learning with tactile feedback 

    Saal, Hannes; Ting, Jo-Anne; Vijayakumar, Sethu (2010)
    We consider the problem of tactile discrimination, with the goal of estimating an underlying state parameter in a sequential setting. If the data is continuous and high- dimensional, collecting enough representative data ...
  • Activity-oriented Instant Messaging for Coalition Operations 

    Tate, Austin; Dalton, J; Potter, S (Czech Technical University Press, 2004-10)
    I-X Process Panels are used to support users who are carrying out processes and responding to events in a cooperative working environment. The panels support the tracking of personal or group issues, the planning and ...
  • Ad hoc cloud computing 

    McGilvary, Gary Andrew (The University of Edinburgh, 2014-11-27)
    Commercial and private cloud providers offer virtualized resources via a set of co-located and dedicated hosts that are exclusively reserved for the purpose of offering a cloud service. While both cloud models appeal to ...
  • Adaptable formalism for the computational analysis of English noun phrase reference 

    Wiggins, Geraint A (The University of Edinburgh, 1990)
  • Adaptive Aspects of Heuristic Search 

    Ross, Robert (The University of Edinburgh, 1973)
    In this thesis we investigate methods by which GT4, a revised and extended version of the Doran-Michie Graph Traverser, might in the course of its problem-solving activity learn about the domain in which it is searching ...
  • Adaptive Java Optimisation using machine learning techniques 

    Long, Shun (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2004-07)
    There is a continuing demand for higher performance, particularly in the area of scientific and engineering computation. In order to achieve high performance in the context of frequent hardware upgrading, software must be ...
  • Adaptive map alignment in the superior colliculus of the barn owl: a neuromorphic implementation 

    Huo, Juan (The University of Edinburgh, 2010)
    Adaptation is one of the basic phenomena of biology, while adaptability is an important feature for neural network. Young barn owl can well adapt its visual and auditory integration to the environmental change, such as ...
  • Adaptive Modelling and Planning for Learning Intelligent Behaviour 

    Kochenderfer, Mykel J (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2006-12)
    An intelligent agent must be capable of using its past experience to develop an understanding of how its actions affect the world in which it is situated. Given some objective, the agent must be able to effectively use ...
  • Adaptive Optimal Control for Redundantly Actuated Arms 

    Mitrovic, Djordje; Klanke, Stefan; Vijayakumar, Sethu (Springer-Verlag, 2008)
    Optimal feedback control has been proposed as an attractive movement generation strategy in goal reaching tasks for anthropomorphic manipulator systems. Recent developments, such as the iterative Linear Quadratic Gaussian ...
  • Adaptive Optimal Feedback Control with Learned Internal Dynamics Models 

    Mitrovic, Djordje; Klanke, Stefan; Vijayakumar, Sethu (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
    Optimal Feedback Control (OFC) has been proposed as an attractive movement generation strategy in goal reaching tasks for anthropomorphic manipulator systems. Recent developments, such as the Iterative Linear Quadratic ...
  • Adaptive parallelism mapping in dynamic environments using machine learning 

    Emani, Murali Krishna (The University of Edinburgh, 2015-06-29)
    Modern day hardware platforms are parallel and diverse, ranging from mobiles to data centers. Mainstream parallel applications execute in the same system competing for resources. This resource contention may lead to a ...
  • Adaptive processing of thin structures to augment segmentation of dual-channel structural MRI of the human brain 

    Withers, James (The University of Edinburgh, 2010)
    This thesis presents a method for the segmentation of dual-channel structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) volumes of the human brain into four tissue classes. The state-of-the-art FSL FAST segmentation software ...
  • Adaptive Tutorial Dialogue Systems Using Deep NLP Techniques 

    Dzikovska, Myroslava; Callaway, Charles; Farrow, Elaine; Marques-Pita, Manuel; Matheson, Colin; Moore, Johanna D. (2010-11-03)
    We present tutorial dialogue systems in two different domains that demonstrate the use of dialogue management and deep natural language processing techniques. Generation techniques are used to produce natural sounding ...
  • Adding safe and effective load balancing to multicomputers

  • Addressing Constraint Failures in Distributed Dialogue Protocols 

    Osman, Nardine Zoulfikar (The University of Edinburgh, 2003)
    Early agent communication languages lacked the means to coordinate the interaction between agents. The importance of coordination was better appreciated when open systems became in favor. Some solutions have been proposed; ...
  • Adequacy for Algebraic Effects 

    Plotkin, Gordon; Power, John (SPRINGER-VERLAG, 2002)
