• Comparing human and computational models of music prediction

    Witten, Ian H.; Manzara, Leonard C.; Conklin, Derrell (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    The information content of each successive note in a piece of music is not an intrinsic musical property but depends on the listener's own model of a genre of music. Human listeners' models can be elicited by having them ...
  • 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 ...
  • Natural language processing in speech understanding systems

    Holmes, Geoffrey (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    Speech understanding systems (SUS's) came of age in late 1971 as a result of a five year development programme instigated by the Information Processing Technology Office of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of ...
  • Getting research students started: a tale of two courses

    Witten, Ian H.; Bell, Timothy C. (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    As graduate programs in Computer Science grow and mature and undergraduate populations stabilize, an increasing proportion of our resources is being devoted to the training of researchers in the field. Many inefficiencies ...
  • Voice input and information exchange in asynchronous group communication

    McQueen, Robert J. (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    Existing computer supported co-operative work (CSCW) systems for group communication typically require some amount of keyboard input, and this may limit their usefulness. A voice input prototype system for asynchronous ...
  • Computer improvisation of blues melodies

    Hall, Mark A. (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    A computer program has been written which composes blues melodies to fit a given backing chord sequence. The program is comprised of an analysis stage followed by a synthesis stage. The analysis stage takes blues tunes and ...
  • Semantic and generative models for lossy text compression

    Witten, Ian H.; Bell, Timothy C.; Moffat, Alistair; Smith, Tony C.; Nevill-Manning, Craig G. (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    The apparent divergence between the research paradigms of text and image compression has led us to consider the potential for applying methods developed for one domain to the other. This paper examines the idea of "lossy" ...
  • Drawing diagrams in TEX documents

    Rogers, Bill; Holmes, Geoffrey (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 1992)
    The typesetting language TEX [Knuth (1984)] is now available on a range of computers from mainframes to micros. It has an unequalled ability to typeset mathematical text, with its many formatting features and fonts. TEX ...
