Prosthetic fitting after upper-limb loss allows for the restoration of motor functions but currently does not restore tactile sensations that are essential for the control of grasping. Therefore, it is commonly assumed that providing force feedback improves the control of grasping with a prosthesis. Nonetheless, there is no consensus on the functional benefits of feedback in prosthesis control. In the current talk, we locate several reasons for these differences in literature and present a clinically useful feedback system.

The ever increasing prevalence of publicly available structured data on the World Wide Web enables new applications in a variety of domains. In this presentation, we provide a conceptual approach that leverages such data in order to explain the input-output behavior of trained artificial neural networks. We apply existing Semantic Web technologies in order to provide an experimental proof of concept. The presentation starts by investigating the case of propositional rule extraction as a base case, carrying past results over to incorporate background knowledge. In the second part, we incorporate knowledge graphs and ontologies and show how the DL-Learner symbolic machine learning system can be used to generate explanations which take such background knowledge into account.
