  • Johnston, Benjamin; Williams, Mary-Anne (UTSePress, 2009)
    Parameter-driven simulations are an effective and efficient method for reasoning about a wide range of commonsense scenarios that can complement the use of logical formalizations. The advantage of simulation is its simplified ...
  • Johnston, Benjamin; Williams, Mary-Anne (IOS Press, 2008)
    Rich computer simulations or quantitative models can enable an agent to realistically predict real-world behaviour with precision and performance that is difficult to emulate in logical formalisms. Unfortunately, such ...
  • Johnston, Benjamin; Williams, Mary-Anne (AAAI Press, 2009)
    Comirit is a framework for commonsense reasoning that combines simulation, logical deduction and passive machine learning. While a passive, observation-driven approach to learning is safe and highly conservative, it is ...
  • Williams, Mary-Anne; Elliot, Steve (Trauner Verlag, 2004)
  • Johnston, Benjamin; Williams, Mary-Anne (Atlantis Press, 2009)
    A great deal of contention can be found within the published literature on grounding and the symbol grounding problem, much of it motivated by appeals to intuition and unfalsifiable claims. We seek to define a formal ...
  • Benferhat, Salem; Dubios, Didier; Prade, Henri; Williams, Mary-Anne (Springer, 2009)
    Intelligent agents require methods to revise their epistemic state as they acquire new information. Jeffrey?s rule, which extends conditioning to uncertain inputs, is currently used for revising probabilistic epistemic ...
  • Williams, Mary-Anne; Trieu, Michael (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2008)
    Grounding robot representations is an important problem in Artificial Intelligence. In this paper we show how a new grounding framework guided the development of an improved locomotion engine [3] for the AIBO. The improvements ...
  • Williams, Mary-Anne; Mccarthy, John; Gardenfors, Peter; Stanton, Christopher; Karol, Alankar (Springer New York LLC, 2009)
    In order for an agent to achieve its objectives, make sound decisions, communicate and collaborate with others effectively it must have high quality representations. Representations can encapsulate objects, situations, ...
  • Stanton, Christopher; Williams, Mary-Anne (IEEE, 2005)
    In this paper we describe a physical and virtual space for conducting research into intelligent mobile sensor networks. Intelligent mobile sensor networks present a number of difficult theoretical and practical research ...
  • Chen, Shan; Williams, Mary-Anne (IGI Global, 2008)
    Book Chapter on Ontology learning - a review of the main concepts of ontologies and the state of the art in the area of ontology learning from text.
  • Chen, Shan; Williams, Mary-Anne (AAAI Press, 2010)
    The volume and diversity of information shared and exchanged within and across social networking sites is increasing. As a result new and challenging requirements are needed for quality manipulation of the information. ...
  • Gardenfors, Peter; Williams, Mary-Anne (John Benjamins, 2007)
  • Johnston, Benjamin; Yang, Fangkai; Mendoza, Rogan; Chen, Xiaoping; Williams, Mary-Anne (Springer, 2008)
    Meaningfully managing the relationship between representations and the entities they represent remains a challenge in robotics known as grounding. In this paper we Semantic Web technologies to provide a powerful extension ...
  • Benferhat, Salem; Dubois, Didier; Prade, Henri; Williams, Mary-Anne (Springer Netherlands, 2002)
    This paper investigates simple syntactic methods for revising prioritized belief bases, that are semantically meaningful in the frameworks of possibility theory and of Spohn''s ordinal conditional functions. Here, revising ...
  • Chen, Shan; Williams, Mary-Anne (Association for Information Systems, 2009)
    Social networks provide unprecedented opportunity for individuals and organizations to share information. At the same time they present significant challenges to privacy that left unaddressed will stifle information sharing ...
  • Williams, Mary-Anne (IEEE Press, 2009)
    This paper explores the adage that good privacy is good business. Businesses, like social networks, often seek to create value from personal information and monetize it. Unlocking and harvesting value embedded in personal ...
  • Williams, Mary-Anne (Springer, 2008)
    The grounding problem remains one of the most fundamental issues in the field of Artificial Intelligence. We argue that representations are grounded information and that an intelligent system should be able to make and ...
  • Novianto, Rony; Williams, Mary-Anne (IEEE, 2009)
    A robot may not be truly self-aware even though it can have some characteristics of self-awareness, such as having emotional states or the ability to recognize itself in the mirror. We define self-awareness in robots to ...
  • Elliot, Steve; Williams, Mary-Anne; Bjorn-Anderson, Niels (IEEE, 2006)
    Technology-enabled business innovation presents the potential to structurally transform enterprise and industry practice, but uncertainty remains as to how such transformations might be managed. The search for higher returns ...
  • Liu, Wei; Williams, Mary-Anne (City University of Hong Kong Press, 2008)
    In this paper, we use qualitative and quantitative methodologies to analyse and understand a range of business strategies in Second Life.
