    Grimaldi, Marco (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2005)
    This thesis presents an inter-disciplinary approach to the problem of music parametrisation for information representation and retrieval. Signal analysis and machine learning techniques are combined in the context of ...
  • Level of detail techniques for real-time urban simulation 

    Hamill, John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2005)
    Real-time urban simulation is an area of computer graphics with many applications, from city planning and emergency response to computer gaming. The task of creating and running a believable simulation of an urban area is ...
  • Leveraging Content from Open Corpus Sources for Technology Enhanced Learning 

    LAWLESS, SEAMUS (Trinity College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, 2009)
    As educators attempt to incorporate the use of educational technologies in course curricula, the lack of appropriate and accessible digital content resources acts as a barrier to adoption. Quality educational digital ...

  • Linear transformations of semantic spaces for word-sense discrimination and collocation compositionality grading 

    Maldonado Guerra, Alfredo. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2015)
    Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) and Word Space are two semantic models derived from the vector space model of distributional semantics that have been used successfully in word-sense disambiguation and discrimination. LSA ...
  • Link quality prediction in mobile ad hoc networks 

    Gaertner, Gregor (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2007)
    Link quality prediction (LQP) is effective in masking topology changes in wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) as previously shown in reducing packet latency in proactive routing. However, most existing LQP algorithms ...
  • Load balancing and rate limiting based algorithms for improving cloud computing performance 

    Doyle, Joseph (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    The cloud computing paradigm has recently become an increasing popular method for the delivery of internet services. While the increased utilisation of the cloud has made it easier for cloud operators to recover their ...
  • Location aware multimedia narratives 

    Nisi, Valentina (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2008)
    During the 1980s and the early 1990s, a considerable number of technology and application trends were concerned with location transparency and virtual spaces, overcoming the limitations of the physical space. Artists and ...
  • Lock-free internal binary search trees with memory management 

    Howley, Shane Valentine (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    The current design trend in microprocessor systems is to add more CPU cores thus increasing parallel execution resources. Although this allows many sequential programs to be run in parallel, it can be challenging to use ...
