  • A study of notions of participation and discourse in argument structure realisation 

    Murphy, Brian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2008)
    There is a lack of consensus on the nature of the process of linking; that is, how the conceptual form of thoughts determines the form of the spoken expressions used to describe them. Prominent theories of argument structure ...
  • 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 unified access control mechanism 

    Abendroth, Joerg (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2005)
    The widespread employment of the Internet facilitates collaboration and the use of distributed applications. Security concerns, such as controlled access to resources are preeminent. Often different applications employ ...
  • 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 ...
  • Adaptive levels of detail for interactive Collision Handling 

    Dingliana, John Lalzoliana (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2003)
    Collision Handling has long been a major bottleneck in physically based animation. As scene complexity increases the problem becomes critical enough to prohibit real-time performance in the animation system. Previous ...
  • Addressing scalability in Mobile Ad hoc Networks 

    Kenny, Warren (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) are wireless networks comprised of nodes which exhibit varying mobility and availability. Such networks are highly volatile, with network membership changing unpredictably over time. As ...
  • Aggregating case-based reasoners in ensembles : an approach in support of explanation 

    Zenobi, Gabriele (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2003)
    Among the reasons for the success Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) has achieved in tackling supervised learning problems, is certainly the capability to give a ranking to any case stored in the database depending on its similarity ...
  • ALPH : a DSAL-based programming model for complexity management in pervasive healthcare applications 

    Munnelly, Jennifer (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
    Healthcare information, for example patient records, must be available to appropriate professionals at all times. The application of pervasive technology to healthcare means that those professionals are using such technology ...
  • An analysis of content-free dialogue representation, supervised classification methods and evaluation metrics for meeting topic segmentation 

    Su, Jing (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2011)
    Automatic topic segmentation in meeting recordings is intensively investigated due to the fact that topic is a salient discourse structure and it indicates natural reference points for contents. Unlike commonly used ...
  • An application framework for mobile, context-aware trails 

    Driver, Cormac (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Time management strategies for planning and scheduling activities increase the effectiveness of either personal or corporate time use. Supporting techniques are commonly based around the use of prioritised to-do lists. ...
  • An approach to managed clustering for knowledge-based networks 

    Jones, Dominic Hugh (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
  • An approach to modelling learner cognition for Technology Enhanced Learning 

    Macarthur, Victoria (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Adaptive Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) combines pedagogical and psychological theory with technological approaches in order to support the learner as an individual. TEL environments have already begun to demonstrate ...
  • An empirical study of the comparative effect of aspect and object-oriented programming on testability 

    Jackson, Andrew (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
