Conference Paper
Full-text available
Conversational Intelligent Tutoring Systems (CITS) are agent based e-learning systems which deliver tutorial content through discussion, asking and answering questions, identifying gaps in knowledge and providing feedback in natural language. Personalisation and adaptation for CITS are current research focuses in the field. Classroom studies have s...
Article
Comprehension is an important cognitive state for learning. Human tutors recognise comprehension and non-comprehension states by interpreting learner non-verbal behaviour (NVB). Experienced tutors adapt pedagogy, materials and instruction to provide additional learning scaffold in the context of perceived learner comprehension. Near real-time asses...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The SPHERE project is devoted to advancing eHealth in a smart-home context, and supports full-scale sensing and data analysis to enable a generic healthcare service. We describe, from a data-science perspective, our experience of taking the system out of the laboratory into more than thirty homes in Bristol, UK. We describe the infrastructure and p...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The UK health service sees around 160,000 total hip or knee replacements every year and this number is expected to rise. Expectations of surgical outcome are changing alongside demographic trends, whilst aftercare may be fractured as a result of resource limitation or other factors. Conventional assessments of health outcomes must evolve to keep up...

The UK health service sees around 160,000 total hip or knee replacements every year and this number is expected to rise with an ageing population. Expectations of surgical outcomes are changing alongside demographic trends, whilst aftercare may be fractured as a result of resource limitations. Conventional assessments of health outcomes must evolv...

The SPHERE project has developed a multi-modal sensor platform for health and behavior monitoring in residential environments. So far, the SPHERE platform has been deployed for data collection in approximately 50 homes for duration up to one year. This document describes the format of the SPHERE dataset, as well as the known and potential data qual...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a novel generic architecture for a conversational intelligent tutoring system named Hendrix. Hendrix mimics a human tutor by guiding a learner through a given knowledge domain using natural language. Hendrix converses with a learner to identify gaps in knowledge through questioning, expanding the curriculum when gaps in knowledg...
