    Evolving Process-Based Models From Psychological Data Using Genetic Programming.Peter C. R. Lane, Peter D. Sozou, Mark Addison & Fernand Gobet - unknown
    The development of computational models to provide explanations of psychological data can be achieved using semi-automated search techniques, such as genetic programming. One challenge with these techniques is to control the type of model that is evolved to be cognitively plausible – a typical problem is that of “bloating”, where continued evolution generates models of increasing size without improving overall fitness. In this paper we describe a system for representing psychological data, a class of process-based models, and algorithms for evolving (...)

    Computational Scientific Discovery and Cognitive Science Theories.M. Addis, Peter D. Sozou, F. Gobet & Philip R. Lane - unknown
    This study is concerned with processes for discovering new theories in science. It considers a computational approach to scientific discovery, as applied to the discovery of theories in cognitive science. The approach combines two ideas. First, a process-based scientific theory can be represented as a computer program. Second, an evolutionary computational method, genetic programming, allows computer programs to be improved through a process of computational trialand-error. Putting these two ideas together leads to a system that can automatically generate and improve (...)

    Consent Agreements for Cryopreserved Embryos: The Case for Choice.Peter D. Sozou, Sally Sheldon & Geraldine M. Hartshorne - 2010 - Journal of Medical Ethics 36 (4):230-233.
    Under current UK law, an embryo cannot be transferred to a woman's uterus without the consent of both of its genetic parents, that is both of the people from whose gametes the embryo was created. This consent can be withdrawn at any time before the embryo transfer procedure. Withdrawal of consent by one genetic parent can result in the other genetic parent losing the opportunity to have their own genetic children. We argue that offering couples only one type of consent (...)

    Personal View: Withdrawal of Consent by Sperm Donors.Peter D. Sozou, Sally Sheldon & Geraldine M. Hartshorne - unknown
    Since 1991, sperm donors in the UK have had the legal right to withdraw consent for the use of their sperm in fertility treatment. This has the potential to adversely affect patients. It may mean that previous recipients of a donor’s sperm cannot have further children who are full biological siblings to an existing child, and that embryos created from the donor’s sperm and a patient’s eggs must be destroyed.
