  1. 1. Mind in Action: Action Representation and the Perception of Biological Motion

    Author : Paul Hemeren; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Other social sciences Civics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Övrig samhällsvetenskap Samhällsvetenskap; Humanities and Social sciences; Humaniora-samhällsvetenskap; action; perception; concept; Cognition; categorization; embodiment; prototype; biological motion; semantics; language; configural processing; basic level; graded structure; typicality;

    Abstract : The ability to understand and communicate about the actions of others is a fundamental aspect of our daily activity. How can we talk about what others are doing? What qualities do different actions have such that they cause us to see them as being different or similar? What is the connection between what we see and the development of concepts and words or expressions for the things that we see? To what extent can two different people see and talk about the same things? Is there a common basis for our perception, and is there then a common basis for the concepts we form and the way in which the concepts become lexicalized in language? The broad purpose of this thesis is to relate aspects of perception, categorization and language to action recognition and conceptualization. READ MORE

  2. 2. Recognition of Prior Learning in Health Care From a Caring Ideology and Power, to Communicative Action and Recognition

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Fredrik Sandberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; RPL; health care; health care assistant; critical social theory; communicative action; recognition; adult education; adult learning; Jürgen Habermas; Axel Honneth; Validering; omvårdnad; vårdbiträde; kritisk samhällsteori; kommunikativt handlande; erkännande; vuxnas lärande; Jürgen Habermas; Axel Honneth;

    Abstract : During the last decades Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) has become a more frequently used method to recognise adult’s prior learning. This thesis analyses a process of RPL in health care, where health care assistants are assessed against subjects in the upper-secondary health care program. READ MORE

  3. 3. Action Recognition for Robot Learning

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alessandro Pieropan; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : This thesis builds on the observation that robots cannot be programmed to handle any possible situation in the world. Like humans, they need mechanisms to deal with previously unseen situations and unknown objects. One of the skills humans rely on to deal with the unknown is the ability to learn by observing others.

  4. 4. Molecular Imprinting Technology. Design and Recognition Properties of Antibody/Receptor Mimics

    University dissertation from Pure and Applied Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Olof Ramström; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Template Polymerisatio; Steroid; Receptor; Racemic Resolution; Polymer; Molecular Recognition; Molecular Imprinting; Enantiomeric Separation; de novo Design; Chromatography; Chiral Stationary Phase; Chiral Recognition; Biorecognition; Antibody; Biomimetic; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : Molecular imprinting technology is derived from the concept of creating designed recognition sites in macromolecular matrices by means of template polymerisation. Molecularly imprinted polymers are able to mimic recognition in natural binding events, such as antibody-antigen and receptor-ligand interactions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Action in Mind : A Neural Network Approach to Action Recognition and Segmentation

    University dissertation from Lund University Cognitive Science
