An ensemble of machine learning and anti-learning methods for predicting tumour patient survival rates
Conference Proceeding
Roadknight, C., Suryanarayanan, D., Aickelin, U., Scholefield, J., & Durrant, L. (in press). An ensemble of machine learning and anti-learning methods for predicting tumour patient survival rates

This paper primarily addresses a dataset relating to cellular, chemical and physical conditions of patients gathered at the time they are operated upon to remove colorectal tumours. This data provides a unique insight into the biochemical and immunol... Read More

French sinology and Gustave Caillebotte’s Portrait of Henri Cordier, 1883
Conference Proceeding
Chang, T. (in press). French sinology and Gustave Caillebotte’s Portrait of Henri Cordier, 1883

This presentation examines the competing and sometimes conflicting demands encountered in the study of portraiture and biography. Once revised, the paper will become an article that will make an original contribution to art history in empirical and c... Read More

Using intelligent agents to understand organisational behaviour
Conference Proceeding
Celia, H., Clegg, C., Robinson, M., Siebers, P., Aickelin, U., & Sprigg, C. Using intelligent agents to understand organisational behaviour

This paper introduces two ongoing research projects which seek to apply computer modelling techniques in order to simulate human behaviour within organisations. Previous research in other disciplines has suggested that complex social behaviours are g... Read More

Intelligent pipeline control - a simulation study in the automotive sector
Conference Proceeding
Brabazon, P. G., Woodcock, A., & MacCarthy, B. L. Intelligent pipeline control - a simulation study in the automotive sector

Automotive producers are aiming to make their order fulfilment processes more flexible. Opening the pipeline of planned products for dynamic allocation to dealers/ customers is a significant step to be more flexible but the behaviour of such Virtual... Read More

Potential for iron enriched yeast in recovery of rats from iron deficiency
Conference Proceeding
Kyyaly, A., & Powell, C. Potential for iron enriched yeast in recovery of rats from iron deficiency

It is well known that iron deficiency can lead to anemia, resulting in a variety of symptoms and health issues. Negative effects can be prevented by ensuring foods with a naturally high iron content are ingested, or countered by taking nutrient supp... Read More

Performance interfaces and destabilisation
Conference Proceeding
Reeves, S., Benford, S., & O'Malley, C. Performance interfaces and destabilisation

Interaction with technology is occurring increasingly in public and semi-public settings and as a result the roles of spectator and performer are frequently being challenged by the deployment of computing systems. In this paper we discuss h... Read More

Enabling the new economic actor: personal data regulation and the digital economy
Conference Proceeding
Crabtree, A. (in press). Enabling the new economic actor: personal data regulation and the digital economy

This paper offers a sociological perspective on data protection regulation and its relevance to the design of digital technologies that exploit or ‘trade in’ personal data. From this perspective, proposed data protection regulations in Europe and the... Read More

Cheating for problem solving: a genetic algorithm with social interactions
Conference Proceeding
Lahoz-Beltra, R., Ochoa, G., & Aickelin, U. (in press). Cheating for problem solving: a genetic algorithm with social interactions

We propose a variation of the standard genetic algorithm that incorporates social interaction between the individuals in the population. Our goal is to understand the evolutionary role of social systems and its possible application as a non-genetic n... Read More

Understanding the Impact of Management Practices and Other Factors on Productivity in the UK Retail Sector
Conference Proceeding
Celia, H., Clegg, C., Siebers, P., & Aickelin, U. Understanding the Impact of Management Practices and Other Factors on Productivity in the UK Retail Sector

Insights into how management practices and other factors impact upon company productivity in the UK retail sector. Creating a sound base of applied knowledge and understanding to inform other components of our project.

Composite modelling of the effect of the water body geometry on landslide-tsunamis
Conference Proceeding
Heller, V. (in press). Composite modelling of the effect of the water body geometry on landslide-tsunamis

Subaerial landslide-tsunamis (impulse waves) are generated by mass movements such as landslides, rock falls or glacier calving interacting with a water body. Preliminary landslide-tsunami hazard assessment is commonly based on empirical equations der... Read More

Power conditioning of thermoelectric generated power using dc-dc converters: a case study of a boost converter
Conference Proceeding
Twaha, S., Zhu, J., & Yan, Y. (in press). Power conditioning of thermoelectric generated power using dc-dc converters: a case study of a boost converter

The near exhaustion of non-renewable energy resources such as fossil fuels followed by disastrous climatic changes have alerted the world to invest in alternative energy sources. Thermoelectric (TE) technology is responsible for innovating TE devices... Read More

Do they have designs on us or for us? (or Beware of Greeks bearing gifts)
Conference Proceeding
Jarman, D. (in press). Do they have designs on us or for us? (or Beware of Greeks bearing gifts)

In this paper I am proposing that for a regional project designed by foreign entities to be truly successful the understanding of the culture of the key stakeholders needs to be two way. Not only does the designer need to learn and understand the rel... Read More

Reframing the photograph: confronting the Nazi past through artistic performance strategies since the 1960s
Conference Proceeding
Allwork, L. (in press). Reframing the photograph: confronting the Nazi past through artistic performance strategies since the 1960s

Working in a period when the western modernist focus on the originality of the artist, painterly form and composition had given way to more post Duchampian practices such as reappropriation, performance and the role of the spectator in creating artis... Read More

Performance measurement under increasing environmental uncertainty in the context of interval type-2 fuzzy logic based robotic sailing
Conference Proceeding
Benatar, N., Aickelin, U., & Garibaldi, J. M. Performance measurement under increasing environmental uncertainty in the context of interval type-2 fuzzy logic based robotic sailing

Performance measurement of robotic controllers based on fuzzy logic, operating under uncertainty, is a subject area which has been somewhat ignored in the current literature. In this paper standard measures such as RMSE are shown to be inappropriate... Read More

Using clustering to extract personality information from socio economic data
Conference Proceeding
Ladas, A., Aickelin, U., Garibaldi, J. M., & Ferguson, E. Using clustering to extract personality information from socio economic data

It has become apparent that models that have been applied widely in economics, including Machine Learning techniques and Data Mining methods, should take into consideration principles that derive from the theories of Personality Psychology in order t... Read More

Modularity and implementation of mathematical operational semantics
Conference Proceeding
Jaskelioff, M. J., Ghani, N., & Hutton, G. Modularity and implementation of mathematical operational semantics

Structural operational semantics is a popular technique for specifying the meaning of programs by means of inductive clauses. One seeks syntactic restrictions on those clauses so that the resulting operational semantics is well-behaved. This approa... Read More

Conference Proceeding
Greensmith, J., Aickelin, U., & Cayzer, S. Introducting Dendritic Cells as a Novel Immune-Inspired Algorithm for Anomaly Detection

Dendritic cells are antigen presenting cells that provide a vital link between the innate and adaptive immune system. Research into this family of cells has revealed that they perform the role of coordinating T-cell based immune responses, both reac... Read More
