  • Improved optimisation of density forecasting models using multi-objective search with applications in risk management 

    Carney, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Density forecasting is becoming an increasingly popular method of prediction. Density forcasting models produce a probability density function estimate of a future event rather than a standard point estimate. Given that ...
  • Improving parallelism through communication, partitioning and load balancing optimizations 

    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 ...
  • Improving pervasive application behaviour with other users' information 

    Spence, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    The behavior of a pervasive application is much improved with access to accurate, relevant information describing the situation of the application's user. Unfortunately, sensor failure, sensor drift, and device mobility ...
  • 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 ...
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic component evaluation in interactive multilingual speech applications 

    Schneider, Anne H. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    Due to the steady progress in technology, together with the rapid increase of powerful mobile devices, the use of voice interfaces and other speech enabled technologies has invaded our every day lives. Today people talk ...
  • 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 ...
  • k-NN approach for classifying semantic roles via Tai-mapping projections 

    Franco-Penya, Hector-Hugo (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Semantic role labelling (SRL) is the task of labelling text with a semantic notation in order to identify who did what? When? How? Etc. Once the text is labelled; that information can be used to solve a multitude of other ...
  • KAFCA : knowledge autonomy for reactive context-aware applications 

    O'Connor, Neil (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
