  • Leveraging Content from Open Corpus Sources for Technology Enhanced Learning 

    LAWLESS, SEAMUS (Trinity College DublinUniversity of Dublin, Trinity College, 2009)
    As educators attempt to incorporate the use of educational technologies in course curricula, the lack of appropriate and accessible digital content resources acts as a barrier to adoption. Quality educational digital ...
  • Mean-Shift Tracking for Surveillance: Evaluations and Enhancements 

    CAULFIELD, DARREN (University of DublinUniversity of Dublin, Trinity College, 2011)
    Mean-shift tracking is a technique for following an object of interest as it moves through a video sequence. It is a gradient ascent approach that models the image region to be tracked by its colour histogram. In this ...

    This report outlines the design and implementation of the Analogue Dynamics Engine (ADE). The ADE is a physics engine constructed from a hybrid, analogue and digital, computer. Software physics engines are becoming ...
  • An Analysis of the Dynamics of Multi-Disciplinary Medical Team Meetings and the Use of Communication Technology 

    KANE, BRIDGET THERESA (Trinity College DublinTrinity College Dublin, School of Computer Science and Statistics, 2008)
  • Completely unanticipated dynamic adaptation of software 

    KEENEY, JOHN (Trinity College DublinDublin University - Trinity College, Department of Computer Science, 2004)
    Dynamic adaptation of software behaviour refers to the act of changing the behaviour of some part of a software system as it executes, without stopping or restarting it. It is difficult to dynamically adapt software if ...
  • A Trust-Based Reputation Management System 

    Gray, Elizabeth (Trinty College Dublin. School of Computer Science and Statistics. Computer Science, 2008-11-10)
    Since its inception in the early 1990s, e-commerce in consumer-to-consumer (C2C) markets has achieved great success, with significant projected growth. For example, the Internet auction provider, eBay, has established ...
  • Aspect-Based Properties 

    Lafferty, Donal (Trinity College Dublin. School of Computer Science and Statistics. Computer Science, 2008-11-10)
    Component frameworks are said to support contextual composition when crosscutting functionality is bound to component instances by declarative selection of context properties, rather than through direct connections, such ...
