    We introduce, a tool to support situational understanding in intelligence analysis that complements but not replaces human expertise. The system combines natural language processing, argumentation-based ...
  • Querying metric spaces with bit operations 

    Connor, Richard; Dearle, Alan (Springer, 2018) - Conference item
    Metric search techniques can be usefully characterised by the time at which distance calculations are performed during a query. Most exact search mechanisms use a “just-in-time” approach where distances are calculated as ...
