Contemporary health care relies on electronic devices. These technologies are not ethically neutral but change the practice of care. In light of Sennett’s work and that of other thinkers (Dewey, Dreyfus, Borgmann) one worry ...
Drones, information technology, and distance: Mapping the moral epistemology of remote fighting
Ethical reflection on drone fighting suggests that this practice does not only create physical distance, but also moral distance: far removed from one’s opponent, it becomes easier to kill. This paper discusses this thesis, ...
Adapting the pheromone evaporation rate in dynamic routing problems
Compositional reasoning using intervals and time reversal
Interval Temporal Logic (ITL) is an established formalism for reasoning about time periods. We investigate some simple kinds of ITL formulas which have application to compositional reasoning and furthermore are closed under ...
Adapting Traffic Simulation for Traffic Management: A Neural Network Approach
Static models and simulations are commonly used in urban traffic management but none feature a dynamic element for near real-time traffic control. This work presents an artificial neural network forecaster methodology ...
Walking State Detection from Electromyographic Signals towards the Control of Prosthetic Limbs
(Proceedings of the 13th Annual Workshop on Computational Intelligence (UKCI'13), 2013-09)
This paper presents experiments in the use of an Electromyographic sensor to determine whether a person is standing, walking or running. The output of the sensor was captured and processed in a variety of different ways ...
