Merged papers in or after 2016, into:
MAJOR UPDATE: 3 Aug 2016
(Split between contents lists and CogAff Project Overview)
There are now far more papers in the Cogaff directory than were originally envisaged when this scheme started. When I find time I shall try to organise grouping by topic, though that will not be easy because of the complex overlaps of topic.
Note: It seems that many of the items on this web site are also accessible via
US OSTI eprints web site:
artificial intelligence toolkit
Kantian Humean causation
what is AI?
"what is information?"
education programming AI
cognition and affect
matter energy information
"design space" "niche space"
evolution altricial precocial
functions of vision
It includes links to projects that overlap with CogAff, including, since 2004, collaborative projects in Cognitive Robotics (CoSy 2004-2008, CogX 2008-2012). Now too many to list here!
Apology Despite warnings from academic staff the central university authorities decided in 2010 to reorganise campus web pages yet again, without taking action to ensure that references to old links are trapped and redirected.
As a result there are probably several broken links on this web site -- and on many other sites on this campus. Identifying and fixing them all will require massive effort for which resources are not available.
Since about 2003, papers in postscript have not been added, since PDF is more widely accessible. The postscript papers may later be phased out, after all have been converted to PDF.
PDF versions of most files can be provided on request if not already available here. Email A.Sloman[AT]cs.bham.ac.uk with requests.
