Federated Learning for Short-term Residential Energy Demand Forecasting (2021)
Preprint / Working Paper
Briggs, C., Fan, Z., & Andras, P. (2021). Federated Learning for Short-term Residential Energy Demand Forecasting

Energy demand forecasting is an essential task performed within the energy industry to help balance supply with demand and maintain a stable load on the electricity grid. As supply transitions towards less reliable renewable energy generation, smart... Read More about Federated Learning for Short-term Residential Energy Demand Forecasting.

Evaluation of binary decision diagrams for redundancy, shadowing, generalisation and correlation in an Information sharing model. (2013)
Preprint / Working Paper
Uthmani, O., Buchanan, W. J., Fan, L., & Lawson, A. Evaluation of binary decision diagrams for redundancy, shadowing, generalisation and correlation in an Information sharing model

This paper defines a structured methodology which is based on the foundational work of Al-Shaer et al. in [1] and that of Hamed and Al-Shaer in [2]. It defines a methodology for the declaration of policy field elements, through to the syntax, ontolog...

A novel Information sharing model using binary decision diagrams for redundancy, shadowing, generalisation and correlation. (2013)
Preprint / Working Paper
Uthmani, O., Buchanan, W. J., Fan, L., & Lawson, A. A novel Information sharing model using binary decision diagrams for redundancy, shadowing, generalisation and correlation

This paper outlines a novel information sharing method using Binary Decision Diagrams (BBDs). It is inspired by the work of Al-Shaer and Hamed, who applied BDDs into the modelling of network firewalls. This is applied into an information sharing poli...

Interagency data exchange, privacy protection and governance architecture for Information sharing across domains (2013)
Preprint / Working Paper
Buchanan, W. J., Fan, L., Uthmani, O., & Schafer, B. Interagency data exchange, privacy protection and governance architecture for Information sharing across domains

This paper discusses privacy enhancing technologies in the field of inter-agency data sharing, a key government objective for efficient public service delivery. We analyse the legal and conceptual framework that governs multi-agency cooperation in pa...

RC2 Encryption and Decryption in Microsoft .NET. (2010)
Preprint / Working Paper
Buchanan, W. J. RC2 Encryption and Decryption in Microsoft .NET

This paper outlines the usage of RC2 in Microsoft .NET. It provides a basic overview of the RC2 method, along with a review of other popular encryption methods and some sample code which can be used to implement RC2.

Everyday coping with technology (2010)
Preprint / Working Paper
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2010). Everyday coping with technology

We report an empirical investigation of Borgmann’s observation that people are fixed in the range of relationships they can have with technology based on their prior familiarity with it. This technological horizon might serve to constrain the kinds o... Read More about Everyday coping with technology.

Firing Rate Modulation by Backward Propagating Potential Waves (2002)
Preprint / Working Paper
András, P. (2002). Firing Rate Modulation by Backward Propagating Potential Waves

The paper investigates the role of backward propagating potential waves in the regulation of the firing rate input ‐ output transformation function of neurons. The analysis is performed using a simple one dimensional neuron model that allows backward... Read More about Firing Rate Modulation by Backward Propagating Potential Waves.

The Prometheus II Description Model: an objective approach to representing taxonomic descriptions (2002)
Preprint / Working Paper
MacDonald, S. M., Raguenaud, C., Pullan, M. R., Kennedy, J., Russell, G., & Watson, M. F. The Prometheus II Description Model: an objective approach to representing taxonomic descriptions

A model for improving the storage and communication of plant descriptions is presented. The model is flexible and yet reduces the ambiguity often present in text descriptions. The fundamental idea behind the model is the necessity for clear represent... Read More about The Prometheus II Description Model: an objective approach to representing taxonomic descriptions.

Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) root system architecture adaptation to initial soil moisture improves seed development in dry-down conditions
Preprint / Working Paper
Bontpart, T., Robertson, I., Giuffrida, V., Concha, C., Scorza, L. C. T., McCormick, A. J., Fikre, A., Tsaftaris, S. A., & Doerner, P. (2020). Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) root system architecture adaptation to initial soil moisture improves seed development in dry-down conditions

Soil water deficit (WD) impacts vascular plant phenology, morpho-physiology, and reproduction. Chickpea, which is mainly grown in semi-arid areas, is a good model plant to dissect mechanisms involved in drought resistance. We used a rhizobox-based...
