Conference Proceeding
Hart, E., Ross, P., Webb, A., & Lawson, A. (2003)
A role for immunology in 'next generation' robots. In J. Timmis, P. Bentley, & E. Hart (Eds.), Artificial Immune Systems. ICARIS 2003, 46-56. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-45192-1_5
Much of current robot research is about learning tasks in which the task to be achieved is pre-specified, a suitable technology for the task is chosen and the learning process...

Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Gales, R., Hyam, R., Kukla, R., Wieczorek, J., Hagedorn, G., …Vieglais, D. (2006)
Developing a core ontology for taxonomic data. In L. Belbin, A. Rissoné, & A. Weitzman (Eds.), Proceedings of TDWG (2006), St Louis, MI
Over recent years several sub-groups within the Taxonomic Databases Working Group (TDWG) have developed models and exchange standards to facilitate data sharing within the tax...

Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration

Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2005)
Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration. In B. Ludaescher, & L. Raschid (Eds.), Data Integration in the Life Sciences, 80-95. https://doi.org/10.1007/11530084_8
Biologists use scientific names to label the organisms described in their data; however, these names are not unique identifiers for taxonomic entities. Alternative taxonomic c...

Conference Proceeding
Graham, M., Kennedy, J., & Downey, L. (2006)
Visual comparison and exploration of natural history collections. In A. Celentano, & P. Mussio (Eds.), Advanced Visual Interfaces (AVI) 2006, Proceedings of the International Working Conference, 310-313. doi:10.1145/1133265.1133329
Natural history museum collections contain a wealth of specimen level data that is now opening up for digital access. However, current interfaces to access and manipulate this...

Telling Tales: Narratives Of Classification And Control In The Design Of Taxonomic Software.

Conference Proceeding
Turner, S., Turner, P., Raguenaud, C., & Kennedy, J. (2002)
Telling Tales: Narratives Of Classification And Control In The Design Of Taxonomic Software. In Proceedings of Design Research Society Conference: Common Ground, September, 2002
This paper draws on concepts from the structuralist analysis of narrative to explore aspects of the role of stories in the small group design process. A brief review of releva...

Journal Article
Craig, P., Kennedy, J., & Cumming, A. (2005)
Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data. BMC bioinformatics, 6, P8. doi:10.1186/1471-2105-6-S3-P8
Microarray technologies are a relatively new development that allow biologists to monitor the activity of thousands of genes (normally around 8,000) in parallel across multipl...

An evolutionary model explaining the Neolithic transition from egalitarianism to leadership and despotism.

Journal Article
Powers, S. T., & Lehmann, L. (2014)
An evolutionary model explaining the Neolithic transition from egalitarianism to leadership and despotism. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 281, 20141349-20141349. https://doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2014.1349
The Neolithic was marked by a transition from small and relatively egalitarian groups, to much larger groups with increased stratification. But the dynamics of this remain poo...
