  • Program trace optimization 

    Moraglio, A; McDermott, J (Springer, 2018)
    We introduce Program Trace Optimization (PTO), a system for `universal heuristic optimization made easy'. This is achieved by strictly separating the problem from the search algorithm. New problem definitions and new generic ...
  • Bridging elementary landscapes and a geometric theory of evolutionary algorithms: first steps 

    Moraglio, A; Gracia, M (Springer, 2018)
    Based on a geometric theory of evolutionary algorithms, it was shown that all evolutionary algorithms equipped with a geometric crossover and no mutation operator do the same kind of convex search across representations, ...
  • New Achievable Sum Degrees of Freedom in Half-duplex Single-antenna Multi-user Multi-hop Networks 

    Wang, C; Wanga, P; Liu, F; Min, G (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-02-21)

    The recent advances in microelectronics and communications have led to the development of large-scale IoT networks, where tremendous sensory data is generated and needs to be processed. To support real-time processing for ...
  • 3D reconstruction of "in-the-wild" faces in images and videos 

    Booth, J; Roussos, A; Ververas, E; Antonakos, E; Ploumpis, S; Panagakis, Y; Zafeiriou, S (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018-05-15)
    3D Morphable Models (3DMMs) are powerful statistical models of 3D facial shape and texture, and are among the state-of-the-art methods for reconstructing facial shape from single images. With the advent of new 3D sensors, ...
  • Computationally Efficient Local Optima Network Construction 

    Fieldsend, JE (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018-07-15)
    There has been an increasing amount of research on the visualisation of search landscapes through the use of exact and approximate local optima networks (LONs). Although there are many papers available describing the ...
  • Voronoi-Based Archive Sampling for Robust Optimisation 

    Doherty, K; Alyahya, K; Fieldsend, JE; Akman, O (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018-07-15)
    We propose a framework for estimating the quality of solutions in a robust optimisation setting by utilising samples from the search history and using MC sampling to approximate a Voronoi tessellation. This is used to ...
  • Robust Multi-Modal Optimisation 

    Alyahya, K; Doherty, K; Akman, O; Fieldsend, JE (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018-07-15)
    Robust and multi-modal optimisation are two important topics that have received significant attention from the evolutionary computation community over the past few years. However, the two topics have usually been ...
  • Aggregated Sparse Attention for Steering Angle Prediction 

    He, S; Kangin, D; Mi, Y; Pugeault, N (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2018)
    In this paper, we apply the attention mechanism to autonomous driving for steering angle prediction. We propose the first model, applying the recently introduced sparse attention mechanism to visual domain, as well as the ...
  • Continuous Control with a Combination of Supervised and Reinforcement Learning 

    Kangin, D; Pugeault, N (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018)
    Reinforcement learning methods have recently achieved impressive results on a wide range of control problems. However, especially with complex inputs, they still require an extensive amount of training data in order to ...
  • More complexity results about reasoning over (m)CP-nets 

    Malizia, E (International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (IFAAMAS), 2018-07)
    Aggregating preferences over combinatorial domains has several applications in artificial intelligence. Due to the exponential nature of combinatorial preferences, compact representations are needed, and (m)CP-nets are ...
  • Engaging stakeholders in research to address water-energy-food (WEF) nexus challenges
