  • Burger, F.V. (2016-09-26)
    Artificial Intelligence
    A key challenge in developing companion agents for children is keeping them inter- ested after novelty e ects wear o . Self-Determination Theory posits that motivation is sustained if the human feels related to the agent. ...

    Chamilakis, E. (2013-11-04)
    Artificial Intelligence
    This thesis presents an investigation of how environmental settings influence the appearance of altruism within small groups of agents. A set of simulation environments has been setup in which agents can perform simple ...
  • Gerke, P.K. (2013-08-23)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Autonomous navigation of robots requires obstacle localization techniques. Obstacles can be localized based on visual data. Large datasets are needed to test methods for visual obstacle localization quantitatively. In ...
  • Bruijn, M.L.E. de (2013-07-18)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Trust in Human-Robot Interaction becomes more important as robots are emerging in the domestic environment. This thesis is focused on the influence of a previous encountered robot on how a second robot is perceived and ...

    Witte, M.J.M. de (2015-05-28)
    Artificial Intelligence
    In this thesis the following research question will be answered: ’How, within the context of current regulations in the EU, could AI techniques help in protecting user’s privacy against the misuse of Big Data?’ To answer ...
  • Haas, M. de (2016-01-15)
    Artificial Intelligence
    This research focuses on exploring the effect of an autonomous robot in the Pivotal Response Therapy for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This project falls within the Picasso project that investigates the use ...
  • Maris, A.P.R. van (2015-01-29)
    Artificial Intelligence
    This thesis project attempts to merge robot technology and physical therapy for elderly people with temporary mobility problems. Design recommendations will be given that can be used as a blueprint to develop a robot that ...
  • Pijkeren, T. (2017-11-20)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Many traffic accidents could most likely be avoided when autonomous vehicles (AVs) are widely used. However, even with perfect sensing, AVs cannot ensure full safety and some AVs will certainly crash. When a crash is ...
  • Feldmann, J.U. (2018-06-18)
    Artificial Intelligence
    This project is part of a pipeline under the title "Adopt a bullet" that aims at gathering information of di erent weapon transports by using AItechniques. One stage in this pipeline consists of identifying the ...
  • Bax, L.N.J. (2010-07-15)
    Artificial Intelligence
    A theory of EEC proposes that the brain constitutes the role of a tra ffic regulator in simple behavior. In simulations was tested whether or not agents with a control structure, which could inhibit behavioral layers, ...
  • Hanique, I.A.M. (2009-10-20)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Nowadays, computing is becoming affective as well as ubiquitous, and might therefore be used to create smart environments. So far, it seems that combining affective and ubiquitous computing has not yet been done. One ...

    Tacken, P.E.P. (2011-07-13)
    Artificial Intelligence
    In the past years various studies have focussed on automated emotion recognition using various modalities (video, audio, physiology) separately. The work we present comprises an investigation of the usefulness of each ...

    Boezeman, E. (2008-07-10)
    Artificial Intelligence
    In this bachelor thesis we studied the effects of using two different approaches in generating homogeneous multi‐agent teams: the clonal and the a‐clonal approach. The a‐clonal approach was hypothesized to generate better ...

    Smit, K. (2017-05-18)
    Artificial Intelligence
    We are living in a world where the influence of robots and Artificial Intelligence is growing every day. Not just in our schools and in our homes, but also on our battlefields. When the first robot starts making the ...

    Bliek, A. (2018-06-18)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Weapons and armor are transported all over the world after manufacture. One way to connect the place of manufacturing to a cartridge is by using the headstamp, a stamp on the bottom of the casing. This information could, ...

    Dalen, J. van (2015-01-30)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Scrub jays, crows and other birds show intelligent behaviour. The most remarkable behaviour is re-caching. These birds cache their food when they have plenty and if they are watched by a conspeci c while doing this, they ...

    Kartoredjo, S. (2018-06-28)
    Artificial Intelligence
    This thesis investigates whether a computational model of symbiotic species interaction can be relevant to update frequency decisions about mobile games. And if so, to what extend. Not publishing updates for a mobile ...
  • Erp, D.L.J. van (2016-10-27)
    Artificial Intelligence
    As artificial intelligence develops, robots are becoming progressively more intelligent, autonomous and intertwined with societal life. Currently an important question is how we can make these robots apply morality and ...

    Peeters, A.C.P. (2017-03-29)
    Artificial Intelligence
    The possibility of love and sex relations between humans and robots has been put on the scientific map by David Levy. In his doctoral dissertation Intimate relationships with artificial partners (2007a), he defended the ...
  • Lagarde, S. (2009-11-24)
    Artificial Intelligence
    The theory of Embodied Embedded Cognition (EEC) proposes that cognition and behavior emerge out of the interaction between body and world. The brain can be envisioned as a tra ffic regulator, assisting in the selection of ...
