The Formal Semantics of Program Slicing for Non-Terminating Computations
Since the original development of program slicing in 1979 [.Weiser slices 1979.] there have been many attempts to define a suitable semantics which will precisely define the meaning of a slice. Particular issues include ...
The Anisotropic Elasticity of the Human Vocal Fold
Objective: To verify the anisotropic nature of the vocal folds by reproducing an experiment led by Rholfs that measured vocal fold elasticity in the transverse and longitudinal directions. To present a physiological ...
Learning of Interval and General Type-2 Fuzzy Logic Systems using Simulated Annealing: Theory and Practice
This paper reports the use of simulated annealing to design more efficient fuzzy logic systems to model problems with associated uncertainties. Simulated annealing is used within this work as a method for learning the ...

(Taylor and Francis, 2016-08-30)
Privacy and brain-computer interfaces: identifying potential privacy disruptions
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) interpret neural activity, applying it to the control of external devices. As BCIs approach market viability, ethical implications come under consideration. This paper identifies potential ...
Digital Wildfires? Propagation, Verification, Regulation and Responsible Innovation
Social media platforms provide an increasingly popular means for individuals to share content online. Whilst this produces undoubted societal benefits, the ability for content to be spontaneously posted and re-posted creates ...
Resource management in big data initiatives: Processes and dynamic capabilities
Effective management of organizational resources in big data initiatives is of growing importance. Although academic and popular literatures contain many examples of big data initiatives, very few are repeated in the same ...
Managing Ethics in the HBP: A Reflective and Dialogical Approach
The Ethics of Computing: A Survey of the Computing-Oriented Literature
Computing technologies and artifacts are increasingly integrated intomost aspects of our professional, social, and private lives. One consequence of this growing ubiquity of computing is that it can have significant ethical ...
Technological Animism: The Uncanny Personhood of Humanoid Machines
(Berghahn Books, 2016-03-01)
This article analyzes the role of animism in the creation and production of humanoid robots. In Japan and the United States, robotic science has emerged from fictional sources and is enmeshed with fictional models, even ...
