    Muralidharan, Servesh (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2016)
    Multi-core processors have been of great importance for the increase in performance of high-end computing in the last decade. This thesis focuses on several bottlenecks of parallel applications that utilize these next-generation ...
  • Influencing user perception using real-time adaptive abstraction 

    Redmond, Niall (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
    Real-time applications such as games, medical or technical visualisations and urban simulations can often be highly complex in nature. This can lead to too much visual data being presented to the user at once, which can ...
  • Infogrid : a relational approach to grid computing 

    Lyttleton, Oliver (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2008)
  • Integrated Intra-HAN and Inter-HAN service interoperability 

    Etzioni, Zohar (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2011)
    In recent years the Home Area Network (HAN) has been going through a revolution. From enabling multiple desktops in the household to share an Internet connection, it evolved as a service-oriented platform, enabling devices ...
  • Interaction-based information retrieval in multimodal, online, artefact-focused meeting recordings 

    Bouamrane, Matt-Mouley (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Traditional search operations, topic detection or summarisation of meeting recordings are generally performed using segmentation and indexing techniques originally developed in the field of Multimedia Information Retrieval. ...
  • Interactive manycore photon mapping 

    Fabianowski, Bartosz (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2011)
  • Interheap GC 

    Dardis, Simon (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2015)
    Garbage collection is the automation of memory management for computer programs. It is an important feature of both the Java and .NET environments, and it is a key component of the runtime system for many high level language ...
  • Intuitive human centric governance of pervasive computing environments 

    O'Donnell, Anthony (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Pervasive computing proposes that in the future, human beings will be immersed in a technology rich environment, where computing power will be embedded in devices all around us. This thesis examines how such technology ...
  • Key challenges in the current TB & HIV information system in South Africa : a case study in Khayelitsha, Western Cape 

    Koivu, Annariina (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2015)
    South Africa has one of the most serious human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) / and tuberculosis (TB) epidemics in the world, with high incidence, prevalence and co-infection rates. Information is at the heart of managing ...
  • A Knowledge-Light Mechanism for Explanation in Case-Based Reasoning 

    Doyle, Donal (University of Dublin, Trinity College. Department of Computer Science, 2005-10)
    Decision support systems are currently achieving higher classification accuracies by using more complex reasoning mechanisms. Examples of such mechanisms include support vector machines and neural networks. However in ...
  • Language support for communicating transactions 

    Spaccasassi, Carlo (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2016)
    In the context of databases, a transaction is a sequence of data operations that are executed atomically and in isolation: either all operations are executed or none is; and their effects are visible to the environment ...
