The patterns of quinolizidine alkaloids in cell cultures of 10 species of Fabaceae were analyzed by high-resolution GLC and GLC-MS and compared with the alkaloids present in the leaves of the respective plants. Lupanine was produced in all 10 cell suspension cultures as the main alkaloid. It was accompanied by sparteine, tetrahydrorhombifoline,(More)
We found no significant differences in mean growth measurements or mean plasma amino acid concentrations in 14 healthy full-term infants fed a whey-predominant cow milk formula and 15 healthy full-term infants who were breast-fed. Plasma taurine concentrations did not differ despite a tenfold higher level of taurine in human milk versus that in the formula.(More)
Game balancing is an important part of the (computer) game design process, in which designers adapt a game prototype so that the resulting gameplay is as entertaining as possible. In industry, the evaluation of a game is often based on costly playtests with human players. It suggests itself to automate this process using artificial players for the(More)
In the General Video Game Playing competitions of the last years, Monte-Carlo tree search as well as Evolutionary Algorithm based controllers have been successful. However, both approaches have certain weaknesses, suggesting that certain hybrids could outperform both. We envision and experimentally compare several types of hybrids of two basic approaches,(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel approach (SAPEO) to support the survival selection process in multi-objective evolutionary algorithms with surrogate models-it dynamically chooses individuals to evaluate exactly based on the model uncertainty and the distinct-ness of the population. We introduce variants that differ in terms of the risk they allow when(More)
ACM-W provides support for women undergraduate and graduate students in Computer Science and related programs to attend research conferences. This exposure to the CS research world can encourage a student to continue on to the next level (Undergraduate to Graduate, Masters to Ph.D, Ph.D. to an industry or academic position). The student does not have to(More)
The workshop is a joint event where undergraduate and graduate students can present their scientific work. Additionally, we aim to provide the students with useful feedback on their papers, their presentations, and possible future research directions. To this end, we encouraged detailed reviews of the papers from our program committee. More importantly, we(More)
Uncertainty propagation is a technique to incorporate individuals with uncertain fitness estimates in evolutionary algorithms. The Surrogate-Assisted Partial Order-Based Evolutionary Optimisation Algorithm (SAPEO) uses uncertainty propagation of fitness predictions from a Kriging model to reduce the number of function evaluations. The fitness predictions(More)
Game balancing is a recurring problem that currently requires a lot of manual work, usually following a game designer's intuition or rules-of-thumb. To what extent can or should the balancing process be automated? We establish a process model that integrates both manual and automated balancing approaches. Artificial agents are employed to automatically(More)
