How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Modelling realistic human behaviours in simulation is an ongoing challenge that resides between several fields like social sciences, philosophy, and artificial intelligence. Human movement is a special type of behaviour driven by intent (e.g. to get groceries) and the surrounding environment (e.g. curiosity to see new interesting places). Services...
Chapter
This paper presents a new general framework for turning any auto-encoder into a generative model. Here, we focus on a specific instantiation of the auto-encoder that consists of the Short Time Fourier Transform as an encoder, and a composition of the Griffin-Lim Algorithm and the pseudo inverse of the Short Time Fourier Transform as a decoder. In o...

Modelling human behaviour is still an ongoing challenge that spaces between several fields like social science, artificial intelligence, and philosophy. Since the research of a metric able to define all the aspect of the human nature is still an ambitious task, most current studies use concepts like social forces or handwritten rules for modelling....
Conference Paper
This paper presents a method to model the intended destination of a subject in real time, based on a trace of position information and prior knowledge of possible destinations. In contrast to most work in this field, it does so without the need for prior analysis of habitual travel patterns. The method models the certainty of each POI by means of a...
Conference Paper

This paper describes a study in evolutionary robotics conducted completely in hardware without using simulations. The experiments employ on-line evolution, where robot controllers evolve on-the-fly in the robots’ environment as the robots perform their tasks. The main issue we consider is the feasibility of tackling a non-trivial task in a realisti...
