Preliminary evaluation shows that the proposed gesture recognition approach has the potential of being utilised in an assistive robot intermediary and capable of recognising hand gestures corresponding to affirmations and denials.
Energy and Performance Trade-Off Optimization in Heterogeneous Computing via Reinforcement Learning
The balance operation mode for improving power consumption and performance is established to dynamically change the programmable logic end work state based on an RL algorithm that can quickly discover the optimization effect of PL on different workloads to improve energy efficiency.
The Si elegans Project - The Challenges and Prospects of Emulating Caenorhabditis elegans
The overall concepts are presented with special focus on the virtual embodiment of the nematode with a closed-feedback loop, which will result in motor commands at neuromuscular junctions at the hardware-software interface to actuate virtual muscles of the virtual nematodes.

- 16 October 2014
An overview of the complete hardware system required to fully realize Si elegans is presented along with an early small scale implementation of the hardware system.
Emulation of chemical stimulus triggered head movement in the C. elegans nematode
A simulation of the neural network in C. elegans that responds to chemical stimulus is presented and a consequent realistic head movement demonstrated and an evolutionary algorithm has been utilised to search for estimates of the values of the synaptic conductances and also to determine whether each synapse is excitatory or inhibitory in nature.

- 12 July 2015
An overview of the hardware layer, connections infrastructure and communication protocol of the Si elegans EU FP7 project is presented, giving the user a set of design tools giving the required flexibility and high level hardware abstraction to design custom neuronal models.
Exploring Neural Principles with Si elegans, a Neuromimetic Representation of the Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
The Si elegans project is at providing this missing link in the rich behavioural repertoire of the tiny worm Caenorhabditis elegans, and is sketching out the main platform components.
Si elegans: Modeling the C. elegans Nematode Nervous System Using High Performance FPGAS
The mammalian nervous system is very efficient at processing, integrating and making sense of different sensory information from the outside world. When compared to the processing speed of modern…
