Predicting Success in Dialogue
Task-solving in dialogue depends on the linguistic alignment of the interlocutors, which Pickering & Garrod (2004) have suggested to be based on mechanistic repetition effects. In this paper, we seek confirmation of ...
Learning in a State of Confusion: Employing active perception and reinforcement learning in partially observable worlds
(University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2007-06)
In applying reinforcement learning to agents acting in the real world we are often faced with tasks that are non-Markovian in nature. Much work has been done using state estimation algorithms to try to uncover Markovian ...
Investigating the Selection of Example Sentences for Unknown Target Words in ICALL Reading Texts for L2 German
This thesis considers possible criteria for the selection of example sentences for difficult or unknown words in reading texts for students of German as a Second Language (GSL). The examples are intended to be provided ...
An Investigation into Tournament Poker Strategy using Evolutionary Algorithms
Poker has become the subject of an increasing amount of study in the computational intelligence community. The element of imperfect information presents new and greater challenges than those previously posed by games ...
Semantic Based Support for Visualisation in Complex Collaborative Planning Environments
Visualisation in intelligent planning systems [Ghallab et al., 2004] is a subject that has not been given much attention by researchers. Among the existing planning systems, some well known planners do not propose a solution ...
Corealisation: A Radical Respecification of the Working Division of Labour in Systems Development
This thesis develops and assesses an alternative approach to developing IT systems in complex organisational settings, aiming to equip IT professionals with an orientation to design that allows them to create uniquely ...

Supporting Collaborative Operations within a Coalition Personnel Recovery Center
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007-05)
Abstract—I-X is a framework that can be used to create an application in which multiple agents adopt a task-centric view of a situation, and which supports the necessary coordination of their activities to respond to that ...
Planning and Doing Things

I was interested in computers by the age of 15 and gave talks on them at school. I attended evening classes a couple of years later while still at school travelling on the bus for an hour in the evening to a college in ...
Sprite Learning and Object Category Recognition using Invariant Features
This thesis explores the use of invariant features for learning sprites from image sequences, and for recognising object categories in images. A popular framework for the interpretation of image sequences is the layers ...
