Transparency of execution using epigenetic networks (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Dethlefs, N., & Turner, A. (2017). Transparency of execution using epigenetic networks. In C. Knibbe, G. Beslon, D. Parsons, D. Misevic, J. Rouzaud-Cornabas, N. Bredeche, …H. Soula (Eds.), Proceedings of the ECAL 2017, 404-411. doi:10.7551/ecal_a_068

This paper describes how the recurrent connectionist architecture epiNet, which is capable of dynamically modifying its topology, is able to provide a form of transparent execution. EpiNet, which is inspired by eukaryotic gene regulation in nature, i... Read More

Domain transfer for deep natural language generation from abstract meaning representations (2017)
Journal Article
Dethlefs, N. (2017). Domain transfer for deep natural language generation from abstract meaning representations. IEEE computational intelligence magazine, 12(3), 18-28. https://doi.org/10.1109/mci.2017.2708558

Stochastic natural language generation systems that are trained from labelled datasets are often domainspecific in their annotation and in their mapping from semantic input representations to lexical-syntactic outputs. As a result, learnt models fail... Read More

A natural language-based presentation of cognitive stimulation to people with dementia in assistive technology : a pilot study (2017)
Journal Article
Cuayahuitl, H., Dethlefs, N., Milders, M., Cuayáhuitl, H., Al-Salkini, T., & Douglas, L. (2017). A natural language-based presentation of cognitive stimulation to people with dementia in assistive technology : a pilot study. Informatics for Health and Social Care, 42(4), 349-360. https://doi.org/10.1080/17538157.2016.1255627

Currently, an estimated 36 million people worldwide are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. In the absence of a cure, non-pharmacological interventions, such as cognitive stimulation, which slow down the rate of deterioration can be... Read More
