  • Adaptive object code compression 

    Gilbert, John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2009)
    Previous object code compression schemes have employed static and semi-adaptive compression algorithms to reduce the size of instruction memory in embedded systems. The suggestion by a number of researchers that adaptive ...
  • Adaptive retrieval, composition & presentation of closed-corpus and open-corpus information 

    Steichen, Ben (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    A key challenge for information access systems lies in their ability to deliver information that is most suited to a user's needs, preferences and context. Personalised Information Retrieval (PIR) seeks to address this ...
  • An inexpensively elastic resource allocation model for platform as a service cloud computing 

    Xiao, Xiaobin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2015)
    With the growth in cloud computing there is additional complexity introduced in cloud systems and therefore there is a need for more efficient resource allocation. Autonomic computing is a promising approach for resource ...
  • Animation of quadrupedal animals and perceptual evaluation of their gaits 

    Skrba, Ljiljana (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
    Computer generated animals have become a common feature of today's digitised society, often found in animated films. In computer games highly realistic animals are simulated in real time. High quality characters and their ...
  • Authoring adaptive soft skill simulations 

    Gaffney, Conor (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    This thesis examines the personalisation of online training simulations which are a key modern approach in computer aided education. More specifically it focuses on the difficulties involved in authoring personalised ...
  • Bayesian methods for evidence synthesis and decision making in Health Technology Assessments 

    Schmitz, Susanne (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    In this thesis statistical methodologies to improve reimbursement decisions in healthcare are developed. The allocation of healthcare resources is a very topical issue in the current economic climate. Given a limited ...
  • Compiler techniques to improve indirect branch prediction 

    McCandless, Jason Marshall (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    Computers employ a class of branches called indirect branches to realize various programming language features. Multiway branching (switch statements), virtual function dispatch and function calls are all realized through ...
  • Constructionism in non-goal orientated virtual worlds 

    Girvan, Carina (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Non-goal orientated virtual worlds have gained particular interest from educators in recent years; however learning experiences tend to replicate traditional praxis and lack pedagogical underpinning. This thesis proposes ...
  • Cross-Site Personalisation 

    Koidl, Kevin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2014)
    Web users are continuously confronted with vast amounts of information. This phenomenon is known as the information explosion and can lead to disorientation and decreased productivity as users attempt to navigate through ...
  • Data and type optimizations in virtual machine interpreters 

    Williams, Kevin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
    Virtual machines provide a portable platform for the execution of programming languages. They are popular amongst language designers as they simplify the task of developing a language and its features. Programmers benefit ...
  • Designing visual decision support for sociotechnical enterprises 

    Upton, Connor (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2009)
    As automation becomes more pervasive in industry, human decision-makers are becoming increasingly dependent on sensor-data to monitor and interpret performance across largescale enterprises. At the same time an exponential ...
  • Distributed optimal routing in wireless ad hoc networks 

    Yang, Guoxian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
    In this thesis, optimal routing problems in wireless ad hoc networks are investigated. The majority of existing routing algorithms follow a selfish strategy, where routing decisions are based on individual communication ...
