  • Darwinism in the gym

    Pope, Clive C.; O’Sullivan, Mary (Human Kinetics Publishers, Inc., 2003)
    This study examined the ecology of “free gym” as it occurred in both school lunch hour and after-school community settings. In an effort to understand how urban youth experience sport, an ethnography using multiple methods ...
  • Data logging and performance analysis software for teachers of indigenous New Zealanders: early results

    Barbour, Robert H.; Ford, Greg; Cunningham, Sally Jo (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    Technology, in the form of personal computers, is making inroads into everyday life in every part of every nation. It is frequently assumed that this is 'a good thing'. However, there is a need for the people in each ...
  • Data maze deciphered

    White, Elizabeth Jayne (APN News and Media, 2010)
    Research in the classroom often means long periods of time hanging out with teachers and children as they go about their everyday work. Waikato University lecturer Jayne White argues the case for units of analysis to refine ...
  • Data mining as a tool for environmental scientists

    Spate, Jessica; Gibert, Karina; Sànchez-Marrè, Miquel; Frank, Eibe; Comas, Joaquim; Athanasiadis, Ioannis; Letcher, Rebecca (International Environmental Modelling and Software Society, 2006)
    Over recent years a huge library of data mining algorithms has been developed to tackle a variety of problems in fields such as medical imaging and network traffic analysis. Many of these techniques are far more flexible ...
  • Data mining challenge problems: any lessons learned?

    Pfahringer, Bernhard (2002)
    When considering the merit of data mining challenges, we need to answer the question of whether the amount of academic outcome justifies the related expense of scarce research time. In this paper I will provide anecdotal ...
  • Data mining in bioinformatics using Weka

    Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark A.; Trigg, Leonard E.; Holmes, Geoffrey; Witten, Ian H. (Oxford University Press., 2004)
    The Weka machine learning workbench provides a general purpose environment for automatic classification, regression, clustering and feature selection-common data mining problems in bioinformatics research. It contains an ...
  • The data privacy matrix project: towards a global alignment of data privacy laws

    Scoon, Craig; Ko, Ryan K.L. (IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    Data privacy is an expected right of most citizens around the world but there are many legislative challenges within a boundary-less cloud computing and World Wide Web environment. Despite its importance, there is limited ...
  • Data Quality in Predictive Toxicology: Identification of Chemical Structures and Calculation of Chemical Descriptors

    Helma, Christoph; Kramer, Stefan; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Gottmann, Eva (Environmental health perspectives, 2000)
    Every technique for toxicity prediction and for the detection of structure–activity relationships relies on the accurate estimation and representation of chemical and toxicologic properties. In this paper we discuss the ...
  • Data refinement and singleton failures refinement are not equivalent

    Reeves, Steve; Streader, David (Springer, 2008)
    In this paper, we give simple example abstract data types, with atomic operations, that are related by data refinement under a definition used widely in the literature, but these same abstract data types are not related ...
  • Data structures for Z testing tools.

    Utting, Mark (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2001-06-01)
    This paper describes some of the difficulties and challenges that arise during the design of tools for validating Z specifications by testing and animation. We address three issues: handling undefined terms, simplification ...
  • Data transformation: a semantically-based approach to function discovery

    Phan, Thong H.; Witten, Ian H. (1994-08)
    This paper presents the method of data transformation for discovering numeric functions from their examples. Based on the idea of transformations between functions, this method can be viewed as a semantic counterpart to ...
  • A data-driven approach to predict suspended-sediment reference concentration under non-breaking waves

    Oehler, Francois; Coco, Giovanni; Green, Malcolm O.; Bryan, Karin R. (Elsevier, 2012)
    Using a detailed set of hydrodynamic and suspended-sediment observations, we developed data-driven algorithms based on Boosted Regression Trees and Artificial Neural Networks to predict suspended-sediment reference (near-bed) ...
  • Database systems as middleware- event, notifications, messages

    Schweppe, Heinz; Hinze, Annika; Faensen, Daniel (Springer, Berlin, 2000)
    Database systems have been traditionally used as integration tools. Data integration was the primary goal of first generation systems. After relational technology had become a mature base for application development, new ...
  • Datalog as a parallel general purpose programming language

    Cleary, John G.; Utting, Mark; Clayton, Roger (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2010-08-27)
    The increasing available parallelism of computers demands new programming languages that make parallel programming dramatically easier and less error prone. It is proposed that datalog with negation and timestamps is a ...
  • Dataset cataloging metadata for machine learning applications and research

    Cunningham, Sally Jo (1996-11)
    As the field of machine learning (ML) matures, two types of data archives are developing: collections of benchmark data sets used to test the performance of new algorithms, and data stores to which machine learning/data ...

    Dataset for: Southern Hemisphere bog persists as a strong carbon sink during droughts
  • Dating marine shell in Oceania: Issues and prospects

    Petchey, Fiona (ANU E Press, 2009)
    Marine shell has several advantages for radiocarbon (¹⁴C) dating in the Pacific — it is ubiquitous in archaeological sites, is easy to identify to the species level, and can often be related directly to human activity. ...
