  • Havemann, Leo (1996)
    Why might it be desirable or possible for historians to analyse media texts? The objective of this paper is to outline some theoretical considerations which seem necessary to the planning and execution of such a research ...
  • Mayo, Michael; Zhang, Edmond Yiwen (2009)
    A novel algorithm for 3D face recognition based point cloud rotations, multiple projections, and voted keypoint matching is proposed and evaluated. The basic idea is to rotate each 3D point cloud representing an individual’s ...
  • Piercy, Gemma Louise (School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work, Massey University, 2001)
    This case study illustrates how, in a time of exclusion, some initiatives still attempt to embrace the traditional concerns of inclusion. The University of Waikato in 2000 decided to push the access and equity policy ...
  • Huygens, Ingrid Louise Maria (Maori and Psychology Research Unit, University of Waikato, 1999)
    This paper outlines a model of accountability for Pakeha practitioners developed over many years as a practising community psychologist involved in research and development projects in Aotearoa in the 1980s and 1990s, ...
  • Frank, Eibe; Huber, Klaus-Perter (1996)
    Using rule learning algorithms to model systems has gained considerable interest in the past. The underlying idea of active learning is to learning algorithm influence the selection of training examples. The presented ...
  • Lyons, Paul J.; Apperley, Mark; Bishop, A.G.; Moretti, G.S (1994)
    Active templates are a semi-automatic visual mechanism for generating algorithms for manipulating pointer-based data structures. The programmer creates a picture showing the affected part of a data structure before and ...
  • Bennett, Simon T.; Flett, Ross A.; Babbage, Duncan R. (Maori and Psychology Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2008)
    A semistructured cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programme for depression was adapted for use with Maori adult clients with depression. Adaptations were developed in consultation with an advisory group consisting of ...
  • Larkins, Robert L.; Mayo, Michael (2008)
    This paper introduces Adaptive Feature Thresholding (AFT) which is a novel method of person-dependent off-line signature verification. AFT enhances how a simple image feature of a signature is converted to a binary feature ...
  • Malik, Robi; Roop, Partha S. (Springer, Berlin, 2005)
    The specification matching problem in embedded systems is to determine whether an existing component may be adapted suitably to match the requirements of a new specification. Recently, a refinement called forced simulation ...
  • Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark A. (Springer, 2008)
    The much-publicized Netflix competition has put the spotlight on the application domain of collaborative filtering and has sparked interest in machine learning algorithms that can be applied to this sort of problem. The ...
  • Hinze, Annika; Junmanee, Saijai (Springer Berlin, 2006)
    Personalized recommendations in a mobile tourist information system suffer from a number of limitations. Most pronounced is the amount of initial user information needed to build a user model. In this paper, we adopt and ...
  • Dorrington, Adrian A.; Kelly, Cameron D.B.; McClure, Shane H.; Payne, Andrew D.; Cree, Michael J. (2009)
    Machine vision using image processing of traditional intensity images is in wide spread use. In many situations environmental conditions or object colours or shades cannot be controlled, leading to difficulties in correctly ...
  • Spiller, Dorothy; Bruce Ferguson, Pip; Pratapsingh, Preetha; Lochan, Shant; Harris, Trudy (2010)
    Teaching development units have been provided at most Australasian and British universities over the last thirty years. Typically, units have provided workshops, courses and individual consultations in a variety of formats. ...
  • Faensen, Daniel; Hinze, Annika; Schweppe, Heinz (Springer, Berlin, 1998)
    An Alerting Service (AS) informs its clients about new information provided by several suppliers. Special interests of clients can be defined as profiles. In the context of digital libraries, suppliers are the providers ...
  • Mohajerani, Sahar; Malik, Robi; Fabian, Martin (The international Federation of Automatic Control, 2012)
    This paper proposes an algorithm to simplify automata in such a way that compositional synthesis results are preserved in every possible context. It relaxes some requirements of synthesis observation equivalence from ...
  • Sarjant, Samuel; Legg, Catherine; Robinson, Michael; Medelyan, Olena (2009)
    In order to achieve genuine web intelligence, building some kind of large general machine-readable conceptual scheme (i.e. ontology) seems inescapable. Yet the past 20 years have shown that manual ontology-building is not ...
  • Holmes, Geoffrey; Fletcher, Dale; Reutemann, Peter; Frank, Eibe (Springer, 2009)
    Chromatography is an important analytical technique that has widespread use in environmental applications. A typical application is the monitoring of water samples to determine if they contain petroleum. These tests are ...
  • Anderson, Timothy Nicholas; Duke, Mike (2007)
    The idea of combining photovoltaic and solar thermal collectors (PVT collectors) to provide electrical and heat energy is not new, however it is an area that has received only limited attention. With concern growing over ...
  • Larkins, Robert L.; Cree, Michael J.; Dorrington, Adrian A. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2012)
    Spherical harmonic cross-correlation is a robust registration technique that uses the normals of two overlapping point clouds to bring them into coarse rotational alignment. This registration technique however has a high ...
  • Lizorkin, Dmitry; Medelyan, Olena; Grineva, Maria (ACM, 2009)
    We present the results of a community detection analysis of the Wikipedia graph. Distinct communities in Wikipedia contain semantically closely related articles. The central topic of a community can be identified using ...
