  • Database Sampling to Support the Development of Data-Intensive Applications 

    Bisbal, Jesus (University of Dublin, Trinity College. Department of Computer Science, 2000-10)
    A prototype database is a model of a database which exhibits the desired properties, in terms of its schema and/or data values, of an operational database. Database prototyping has been proposed as a technique to support ...
  • The Decentralised Coordination of Self-Adaptive Components 

    Dowling, Jim (University of Dublin, Trinity College. Department of Computer Science, 2004-10)
    Distributed computing systems are moving towards increasingly autonomous operation and management, in which their interacting components can organise, regulate, repair and optimise themselves without human intervention. ...
  • Decentralised detection of emergence in complex adaptive systems 

    O'Toole, Eamonn (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2016)
    Emergence is a hallmark of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS), where non-deterministic interactions between agents can give rise to emergent behaviour or properties at the system level. The nature, timing and consequence of ...
  • Decentralized optimization of fluctuating urban traffic using reinforcement learning 

    Salkham, As'ad (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
  • Design and implementation of an ahead-of-time compiler for PHP 

    Biggar, Paul (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
    In recent years the importance of dynamic scripting languages -such as PHP, Python, Ruby and Javascript - has grown as they are used for an increasing amounts of sortware development. Scripting languages provide high-level ...
  • Designing telecommunication service management systems 

    WADE, VINCENT PATRICK (Trinity College Dublin.School of Computer Science and Statistics.COMPUTER SCIENCE, 2006)
    In today's telecommunication industry, the management of services is seen as a key enabler and differentiating factor in the flexible delivery of telecommunication solutions. Increased competition and globalisation of ...
  • Detecting gender bias in the coverage of politicians in Irish newspapers using automated text classification 

    Leavy, Susan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    This thesis presents an investigation of whether there is evidence of gender bias in the coverage of politicians in Irish newspapers. Text-analysis techniques including natural language processing and machine learning are ...
  • Detecting restriction class correspondences in Linked Open Data 

    Walshe, Brian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    The Linked Open Data (LOD) project has made a broad range of knowledge available on the World Wide Web as open datasets, using a common format and linked in such a manner that it is a simple task to explore and integrate ...
  • Discovery of autonomous semantic services in mobile ad hoc networks 

    Nedos, Andronikos (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) are dynamic networks in which mobile devices with wireless connnunication capabilities cooperate to provide spontaneous connectivity. In particular, a mobile ad hoc network can be considered ...
  • Discovery of delay-tolerant networking endpoint elements 

    McMahon, Alex (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    In this thesis, we study discovery problems in heterogeneous networks. Internet applications generally involve contemporaneous low-latency connectivity oriented around hosts and addresses. The discovery standards, protocols ...
  • Distinguishability and Web traffic timing analysis 

    Feghhi, Saman (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2017)
    Privacy of data transmitted over public networks has attracted much attention over recent years. Studies show that attacks based on traffic analysis enable malicious users to extract useful information about communications ...
  • Distributed shared memory architectures and global performance state estimation 

    Manzke, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2006)
    Invasive and non-invasive methods may be applied to measure and analyse the performance of hardware Distributed Shared Memory (DSM) systems. This thesis presents novel solutions for both methods and discusses the ...
  • Effects of social structure on establishing lexical conventions in a computational model of task-oriented primeval dialogue 

    Bachwerk, Martin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    In the field of language evolution, the only way of obtaining empirical data for most of its parts is with the help of computational models and simulations. As a consequence, a large number of different modelling approaches ...
  • Enforcing cooperation between nodes in mobile ad hoc networks 

    Othman, Nor Effendy (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Traditional infrastructure-based networks are formed around an infrastructure of static, dedicated components that connect the individual end points such as desktop computers and servers. The exponential rise in the number ...
  • Event-Based Middleware for Collaborative Ad Hoc Applications 

    MEIER, RENE (University of Dublin, Trinity College. Department of Computer Science, 2003-09)
    Middleware supporting event-based communication is widely recognised as being well suited to interconnecting the components of mobile applications since it naturally accommodates a dynamically changing population of ...
  • Explaining the output of ensembles on a case by case basis 

    Wall, Robert (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2003)
    This thesis introduces a novel method for explaining the predictions of ensembles of artificial neural networks on a case by case basis. Current research is primarily directed towards building global model, that is, models ...
  • Explicit Substitution and Sorted Bigraphs 

    Ó Conchúir, Shane Thomas (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2009)
    This dissertation investigates the notions of sorting and explicit substitution in the framework of bigraphs. We present kind sortings which endeavour to add enough structure to bigraphs to allow faithful representations, ...
