How can I help you? Comparing engagement classification strategies for a robot bartender (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Foster, M. E., Gaschler, A., & Giuliani, M. (2013, December). How can I help you? Comparing engagement classification strategies for a robot bartender. Paper presented at 15th International Conference on Multimodal Interfaces (ICMI 2013)

A robot agent existing in the physical world must be able to understand the social states of the human users it interacts with in order to respond appropriately. We compared two implemented methods for estimating the engagement state of customers for... Read More about How can I help you? Comparing engagement classification strategies for a robot bartender.

Connecting spiking neurons to a spiking memristor network changes the memristor dynamics (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Gater, D., Iqbal, A., Davey, J. S., & Gale, E. (2013, December). Connecting spiking neurons to a spiking memristor network changes the memristor dynamics. Paper presented at Proceedings of the International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS) 2013

Memristors have been suggested as neuromorphic computing elements. Spike-time dependent plasticity and the Hodgkin-Huxley model of the neuron have both been modelled effectively by memristor theory. The d.c. response of the memristor is a current... Read More about Connecting spiking neurons to a spiking memristor network changes the memristor dynamics.

Linguistic indicators of the effects of social disclosure on the fading affect bias (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Muir, K., Brown, C., & Madill, A. (2013, November). Linguistic indicators of the effects of social disclosure on the fading affect bias. Paper presented at iCog Inaugural Conference: Interdisciplinarity in Cognitive Science

Introduction The intensity of negative emotions associated with everyday unpleasant events often fade in memory over time, whilst positive emotions associated with everyday pleasant events remain relatively constant. This phenomenon is known as th... Read More about Linguistic indicators of the effects of social disclosure on the fading affect bias.
