A number of studies highlights the importance of the relationship between people and spaces, and how environments can positively affect the wellbeing of people as they age in place (Kerr, Rosemberg and Frank, 2012). This study investigates the impact... Read More about The impact of aged people and dementia-friendly environments in users’ socio-economic inclusiveness.

Human-in-the-loop topic modelling: Assessing topic labelling and genre-topic relations with a movie plot summary corpus
Conference Proceeding
Matthews, P. Human-in-the-loop topic modelling: Assessing topic labelling and genre-topic relations with a movie plot summary corpus. In ISKO-UK Conference: The Human Position in an Artificial World: Creativity, Ethics and AI in Knowledge Organisation

A much-used but not yet mainstream text analysis approach, topic modelling allows the identification of lexical themes for a document collection. Against principles for interpretable AI and sociotechnical design, there are definite strengths from its...

Cohen’s d for two independent samples
Other
White, P., Redford, P., & Macdonald, J. Cohen’s d for two independent samples

An exposition of standardized effect for two independent samples (under an assumption of normality) is given along with an insight into interpretation and reporting

That assumption of normality
Other
White, P., Redford, P., & Macdonald, J. That assumption of normality

Many statistical tests are based around an assumption of “normality”. The reasoning for this choice of distribution, whether to test, what to test, and how to test for normality is covered along with practical recommendations.

A reverse look at p-values
Other
White, P., Redford, P., & Macdonald, J. A reverse look at p-values

An overview of p-values is given. The usual way of being introduced to p-values is by considering the rigorous development of statistical tests, then their use for decision making. This note takes a reverse view by firstly considering their use in... Read More about A reverse look at p-values.

Other
White, P., Redford, P., & Macdonald, J. An example motivated discourse of the independent samples t-test and the Welch test

Analyses are given for two example scenarios. Both scenarios comprise two independent samples. One scenario is analysed using the independent samples t-test; the other the Welch test. Commentary on the designs and limitations is given through a qu... Read More about An example motivated discourse of the independent samples t-test and the Welch test.
