Fall prediction using behavioural modelling from sensor data in smart homes. (2019)
Journal Article
FORBES, G., MASSIE, S. and CRAW, S. 2020. Fall prediction using behavioural modelling from sensor data in smart homes. Artificial intelligence review [online], 53(2), pages 1071-1091. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10462-019-09687-7

The number of methods for identifying potential fall risk is growing as the rate of elderly fallers continues to rise in the UK. Assessments for identifying risk of falling are usually performed in hospitals and other laboratory environments, however...

Emotion-aware polarity lexicons for Twitter sentiment analysis. (2018)
Journal Article
BANDHAKAVI, A., WIRATUNGA, N., MASSIE, S. and P, D. 2021. Emotion-aware polarity lexicons for Twitter sentiment analysis. Expert systems [online], 38(7): artificial intelligence/EDMA 2017, article e12332. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1111/exsy.12332

Theoretical frameworks in psychology map the relationships between emotions and sentiments. In this paper we study the role of such mapping for computational emotion detection from text (e.g. social media) with a aim to understand the usefulness of a...

Improving e-learning recommendation by using background knowledge. (2018)
Journal Article
MBIPOM, B., CRAW, S. and MASSIE, S. 2021. Improving e-learning recommendation by using background knowledge. Expert systems [online], 38(7): artificial intelligence/EDMA 2017, article e12265. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1111/exsy.12265

There is currently a large amount of e-Learning resources available to learners on the Web. However, learners often have difficulty finding and retrieving relevant materials to support their learning goals because they lack the domain knowledge to cr...

Lexicon generation for emotion detection from text. (2017)
Journal Article
BANDHAKAVI, A., WIRATUNGA, N., MASSIE, S. and PADMANABHAN, D. 2017. Lexicon generation for emotion detection from text. IEEE intelligent systems [online], 32(1), pages 102-108. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/MIS.2017.22

General-purpose emotion lexicons (GPELs) that associate words with emotion categories remain a valuable resource for emotion detection. However, the static and formal nature of their vocabularies make them an inadequate resource for detecting emotion... Read More about Lexicon generation for emotion detection from text..

General Purpose Emotion Lexicons (GPELs) that associate words with emotion categories remain a valuable resource for emotion analysis of text. However the static and formal nature of their vocabularies make them inadequate for extracting effective fe... Read More about Lexicon based feature extraction for emotion text classification..

Case-base maintenance with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms. (2015)
Journal Article
LUPIANI, E., MASSIE, S., CRAW, S., JUAREZ, J.M. and PALMA, J. 2016. Case-base maintenance with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms. Journal of intelligent information systems [online], 46(2), pages 259-284. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10844-015-0378-z

Case-Base Reasoning is a problem-solving methodology that uses old solved problems, called cases, to solve new problems. The case-base is the knowledge source where the cases are stored, and the amount of stored cases is critical to the problem-solvi...

Learning pseudo-tags to augment sparse tagging in hybrid music recommender systems. (2014)
Journal Article
HORSBURGH, B., CRAW, S. and MASSIE, S. 2015. Learning pseudo-tags to augment sparse tagging in hybrid music recommender systems. Artificial intelligence [online], 219, pages 25-39. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.artint.2014.11.004

Online recommender systems are an important tool that people use to find new music. To generate recommendations, many systems rely on tag representations of music. Such systems however suffer from tag sparsity, whereby tracks lack a strong tag repres... Read More about Learning pseudo-tags to augment sparse tagging in hybrid music recommender systems..
