  • A case study of Action Design Research for privacy risk management engineering 

    Moloney, Maria (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    This dissertation presents a case study concerning the application of the Action Design Research (ADR) methodology to the development of a privacy-enhanced electronic postal system. As part of the ADR project, a model of ...
  • A dependency modelling approach for the management of ontology-based integration systems 

    Boran, Aidan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2011)
    Ontology-based approaches that formally represent the meaning of information in a system, offer the hope of dealing with semantic heterogeneity when integrating heterogeneous data sources [Halevy 2001, Noy 2004, Wache et ...
  • A domain knowledge driven information uplift approach for network monitoring 

    Song, Yuqian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    With the advance of modern network technologies, people now enjoy increased convenience whilst occasionally suffering annoyance from network issues by lacking domain expertise. In the Home Area Network (HAN), these issues ...
  • A framework for instrument monitoring on the grid 

    Kenny, Stuart (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2006)
    Grid computing enables the selection and aggregation of a wide variety of geographically distributed resources as a single unified computing resource, for solving large scale compute and data intensive computing ...
  • A framework for the delivery and evaluation of personalised multilingual information retrieval 

    Ghorab, Mohammed Rami (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    The amount of content provided in different languages on the Web is growing every day. The best answer to a user's query may not necessarily be available in his/her own language, but may reside in the diverse, multilingual ...
  • A generic framework for grid-enabled visualisation and computational steering, and its characterisation 

    Watson, Ronan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2011)
    This thesis presents a generic framework for grid-enabled visualisation and computational steering that is amenable to characterisation using mathematical models based on benchmarked resources. The models enable designers, ...
  • A knowledge-light approach to regression using case-based reasoning 

    McDonnell, Neil (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Case-based reasoning (CBR) is among the most influential paradigms in modern machine learning. It advocates a strategy of storing specific experiences in the form of cases, and solving new ...
  • A model for mobile spatial services 

    Linehan, Éamonn (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2009)
    Mobile context-aware computing is a paradigm in which mobile devices have access to information, known as context, about the situation in which they are being used, and dynamically adapt application behaviour to support ...
  • A multi-faceted model of trust that is personalisable and specialisable 

    Quinn, Karl (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Trust is a term that is open to a wide range of subjective interpretations, and it has therefore been argued that “trust is a fashionable but overloaded term with lots of intertwined ...
  • A slot-based approach to optimise freeway traffic using Intelligent Vehicles 

    Marinescu, Dan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    Over the last decades, the increase in demand for road transportation has traditionally been matched by an expansion of the road network to prevent or reduce traffic congestion. This approach is unsustainable in the long ...
  • A study of the formation and nature of a community of learners within a blended, part-time, graduate, higher education programme 

    Savage, Timothy (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2015)
    This study uses a grounded theory approach to develop a theoretical understanding of the formation, nature, and impact of a blended community on the educational experience of part-time higher education students. Within ...
  • A virtual reality-based context simulator for evaluating the effect of uncertainty on Smart Building Applications 

    McGlinn, Kris (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Smart Building Applications (SBAs) adapt their behaviour in response to context information generated by sensors present in the smart building. SBA developers must however account for uncertainty in the accuracy of context ...
  • Accelerated computing on computational grid infrastructures 

    Walsh, John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2016)
    Grid infrastructures have been central to some of the largest computationally intensive scientific investigations in recent times. As the complexity of computational simulations and models increases, the dependency on ...
  • Acceleration of cryptographic 

    Harrison, Owen (Trinity College Dublin. School of Computer Science and Statistics. Computer Science, Dublin, 2010)
    Graphics processing units (GPUs) can act as an attractive alternative to CPUs for general purpose computation in certain scenarios. Traditionally, the GPU has been developed to offload graphics processing from the CPU. In ...
  • Active learning query selection with historical information 

    Davy, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2009)
    This work describes novel methods and techniques to decrease the cost of employing active learning in text categorisation problems. The cost of performing active learning is a combination of labelling effort and computational ...
  • Adaptable design for talk-based mental health interventions 

    Coyle, David (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2008)
    The cost to society of mental illness is substantial. This thesis proposes and provides practical illustration of an adaptable approach to the design of technology for talk-based mental health interventions. The approach ...
  • Adaptive eLearning for grid computing 

    Cassidy, Kathryn (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    Adaptive eLearning appears well suited to Grid education because of the distributed and heterogeneous nature of grid users and their asynchronous training demand. This thesis explores the application of adaptive eLearning ...
  • Addressing scalability in Mobile Ad hoc Networks 

    Kenny, Warren (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
