  • Schepens, J.J. (2008-12-19)
    Artificial Intelligence
    We applied the Levenshtein distance on a professional translation database (extracted from Euroglot professional 5.0) in order to identify distributions of cognates in 6 European languages. Using the Rosetta schemes of ...
  • Stuijt, F.H.A. (2008-12-22)
    Artificial Intelligence
    The human mirror neuron system (MNS) refers to brain regions becoming active both when an action is performed, and when a similar action is being observed. Several functions have been attributed to the MNS. It is argued ...
  • Megen, V.J.B. van (2008-12-23)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Imagine that you could not see the di erence between cars and the streets they move on. Crossing the street would be quite problematic. Luckily, visually identifying objects is an easy task for humans; we can almost ...
  • Delft, B. van (2009-01-05)
    Artificial Intelligence
    In this thesis a theoretical attack on an AI classifier as introduced by Barreno et al. (2006) is described and lifted to a more realistic setting. The dataset, classifier and attack algorithm were updated in order to ...
  • Gool, M.J. van (2009-02-12)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Evolutionary robotics can be done in two ways; in simulation and in real-life. Earlier studies have showed that interleaving does not show very promising results. In this paper I did a predator-prey experiment completely ...
  • Verhuurt, W. (2009-03-17)
    Artificial Intelligence
    This paper presents an empirical investigation of the ways people tend to map changes in several musical parameters to the visual parameters that control a realtime visual feedback system. By investigating visualization ...
  • Léoné, F.T.M. (2009-03-30)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Language learning is typical a sequential process, in which one language is learned after the other. There is reason to believe however that simultaneous language learning, or learning words from multiple languages for one ...
  • Bieger, J.E. (2009-05-06)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Artificial neural networks (ANNs) attempt to mimic human neural networks in order to solve problems and carry out tasks. However, in contrast to their human counterparts ANNs cannot generally learn to perform new tasks ...
  • Heesch, J.M.J. van (2009-05-19)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) measure brain activity and convert it to commands that can be executed by a device. A good BCI enables users to control a device by means of thought. In this thesis we consider two types of ...
  • Beusekom, W.E. van (2009-06-02)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Co-training is a classification scheme needing only a small set of training instances for correct classification. The main question assessed in this thesis was how co-training performance varies with varying representat ...
  • Vroon, J.H. (2009-06-09)
    Artificial Intelligence
    An influential model of how reinforcement learning occurs in human brains is the one pioneered by Suri and Schultz [6]. The model was originally designed and tested for learning tasks in deterministic environments. This ...
  • Wijngaarden, C. van (2009-07-07)
    Artificial Intelligence
    The aim of social robotics is to make robots that are integrated in our daily life and cooperate with humans. For efficient cooperation, the understanding of actions of other agents is important. In Artificial Intelligence ...
  • Koldijk, S.J. (2009-07-09)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Many animals and humans live in diverse populations in which specialized individuals help each other. From an evolutionary point of view this is puzzling: why should individuals help others if this lowers the chance that ...
  • Barth, R. (2009-07-14)
    Artificial Intelligence
    In this thesis a method for artifact detection and removal in EEG is presented and tested. This method is based on a template matching technique using cross-correlations in the time domain. A template is created by ...
  • Hofman, J. (2009-07-15)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Why did I write this thesis? There are several possible goals that one can come up with to explain my behavior, e.g. earning a bachelor degree or trying to publish. Explaining observed behavior with the goal causing that ...
  • Dijkstra, L.J. (2009-07-16)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Twenty-five procent of the epileptic patients today are untreatable [1]. They have to live with the (seemingly) unpredictable nature of their disorder. An epileptic seizure prediction system could make a large improvement ...
  • Pinxteren, Y.L.F.H. van (2009-07-20)
    Artificial Intelligence
    The recently introduced transductive confidence machines (TCMs) framework allows to extend classifiers such that their performance can be set by the user prior to classification. In this paper we apply the TCM framework, ...
  • Sappelli, M. (2009-08-03)
    Artificial Intelligence
    We examined how the cross-linguistic similarity of cognates affects bilingual word recognition in a second language. In a language decision task, Dutch- English bilinguals processed cognates with varying orthographic ...
  • Dijk, E.T. van (2009-08-14)
    Artificial Intelligence
    The question of how to obtain high levels of cooperation in a Prisoner’s Dilemma-like situation has been the subject of many models and simulations. Few have, however, tackled the problem from as realistic a viewpoint as ...

    Belliot, Z.L.G. (2009-08-31)
    Artificial Intelligence
    Automatische beeldsegmentatie is een belangrijk onderzoeksveld waar in het kader van computer vision en kunstmatige intelligentie veel onderzoek naar is gedaan. Het herkennen en onderscheiden van beeldonderdelen is een ...
