Research and Teaching


Anna’s current role on the SAWS project is in the development of tools for exploration and exploitation of collections of ancient Greek and Arabic ‘wisdom’ sayings, using Semantic Web technologies. Previously Anna has published work in computational creativity, music information retrieval and computational linguistics. Her PhD work proposes and applies a methodological tool to evaluate the creativity of computational creativity systems: SPECS (Standardised Procedure for Evaluating Creative Systems).
