  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Domain-aware user model interoperability 

    Walsh, Edmond (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Exchanging user information between multiple sources can potentially bring many benefits that enhance the user experience in software applications. Richer and more dynamic user models can be constructed allowing more ...
  • 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 ...
  • Specification and verification of design pattern structure, behaviour and variation 

    Sterritt, Ashley (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Design patterns are generic solutions to connnonly-occnrring object-oriented software design problems that display good design properties such as extensibility or loose coupling. During software maintenance, earlier design ...
  • 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 ...
  • Learning object-oriented programming from the students' perspective 

    Stamouli, Ioanna (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2009)
    Computer programming and programming languages are core modules in most undergraduate Computer Science and Engineering degree courses. However, learning to program is a complex activity as it involves the understanding and ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • A systematic approach to safe coordination of dynamic participants in real-time distributed systems 

    Sin, Mong Leng (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2013)
    Computer systems that employ autonomous robots have been demonstrated in many areas including entertainment (e.g., robot soccer), defense (e.g., reconnaissance) and homeland security (e.g., disaster rescue). To ensure ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Adaptive composition of personalised learning activities 

    O'Keefe, Ian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2012)
