A honeybees-inspired heuristic algorithm for numerical optimisation (2019)
Journal Article
Dugenci, M., & Aydin, M. E. (in press). A honeybees-inspired heuristic algorithm for numerical optimisation. Neural Computing and Applications, https://doi.org/10.1007/s00521-019-04533-x

Swarm intelligence is all about developing collective behaviours to solve complex, ill-structured and large-scale problems. Efficiency in collective behaviours depends on how to harmonise the individual contributors so that a complementary collective... Read More

Digital Expression and Representation of Rhythm (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Renney, N., & Gaster, B. R. (2019, September). Digital Expression and Representation of Rhythm. Paper presented at Audio Mostly

Music provides a means to explore time by sequencing musical events in a seemingly endless and expressive way. This potential often far exceeds the ability of digital systems to enable composers and performers to explore musical time, perhaps due to... Read More

Marimo machines: oscillators, biosensors and actuators (2019)
Journal Article
Phillips, N., Draper, T. C., Mayne, R., & Adamatzky, A. (2019). Marimo machines: oscillators, biosensors and actuators. Journal of Biological Engineering, 13(1), https://doi.org/10.1186/s13036-019-0200-5

Background The green algae balls (Aegagropila linnaei), known as Marimo, are large spherical colonies of live photosynthetic filaments, formed by rolling water currents in freshwater lakes. Photosynthesis therein produces gas bubbles that can attach... Read More

A guideline-based approach for assisting with the reproducibility of experiments in recommender systems evaluation (2019)
Journal Article
Polatidis, N., Pimenidis, E., Fish, A., & Kapetanakis, S. (in press). A guideline-based approach for assisting with the reproducibility of experiments in recommender systems evaluation. International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools,

Recommender systems’ evaluation is usually based on predictive accuracy and information retrieval metrics, with better scores meaning recommendations are of higher quality. However, new algorithms are constantly developed and the comparison of result... Read More
