  • Toward a theory of music information retrieval queries: System design implications

    Cunningham, Sally Jo; Downie, J. Stephen (Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, 2002)
    Interest in the development of content-based music information retrieval (MIR) systems is growing rapidly. The MIR research community consists of a multidisciplinary amalgam of librarians, digital librarians, information ...
  • Research laboratory survey

    Thomson, Kirsten (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-11)
    This report represents the results of a survey conducted by the University of Waikato Usability Laboratory of the research laboratories at the Department of Computer Science, The University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand. ...
  • The LIDS Research Project: appendage to usability study report (1/2002)

    Thomson, Kirsten; McLeod, Laurie (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-07)
    This report is a follow on to an earlier report (titled: Usability Study Report (1/2002), dated 1 July 2002) that presented the University of Waikato Usability Laboratory’s (Usability Laboratory) analysis of the Large ...
  • Use of video shadow for small group interaction awareness on a large interactive display surface

    Apperley, Mark; McLeod, Laurie; Masoodian, Masood; Paine, Lance; Phillips, Malcolm; Rogers, Bill; Thomson, Kirsten (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-07)
    This paper reports work done as part of the Large Interactive Display Surface (LIDS) project at the University of Waikato. One application of the LIDS equipment is distributed meeting support. In this context large display ...
  • The LIDS Research Project: usability study report (1/2002)

    Thomson, Kirsten; McLeod, Laurie (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-07)
    This report represents the University of Waikato Usability Laboratory’s (Usability Laboratory) analysis of the Large Interactive Display Screen (LIDS) technologies as developed by the LIDS Research Group. The Usability ...
  • Benchmarking attribute selection techniques for discrete class data mining

    Hall, Mark A.; Holmes, Geoffrey (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-04)
    Data engineering is generally considered to be a central issue in the development of data mining applications. The success of many learning schemes, in their attempts to construct models of data, hinges on the reliable ...
  • A logic boosting approach to inducing multiclass alternating decision trees

    Holmes, Geoffrey; Pfahringer, Bernhard; Kirkby, Richard Brendon; Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark A. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-03)
    The alternating decision tree (ADTree) is a successful classification technique that combine decision trees with the predictive accuracy of boosting into a ser to interpretable classification rules. The original formulation ...
  • ZML:XML support for standard Z.

    Utting, Mark; Toyn, Ian; Sun, Jing; Martin, Andrew; Dong, Jin Song; Daley, Nicholas; Currie, David (2002-12-01)
    This paper proposes an XML format for standard Z. We describe several earlier XML proposals for Z, the problems and issues that arose, and the rationales behind our new proposal. The new proposal is based upon a comparison ...
  • Object orientation without extending Z

    Utting, Mark; Wang, Shaochun (Springer-Verlag, 2002-12-01)
    The good news of this paper is that without extending Z, we can elegantly specify object-oriented systems, including encapsulation, inheritance and subtype polymorphism (dynamic dispatch). The bad news is that this ...
  • Accuracy bounds for ensembles under 0 - 1 loss.

    Bouckaert, Remco R. (Dept. of Computer Science, 2002-06-01)
    This paper is an attempt to increase the understanding in the behavior of ensembles for discrete variables in a quantitative way. A set of tight upper and lower bounds for the accuracy of an ensemble is presented for wide ...
  • Racing committees for large datasets.

    Frank, Eibe; Holmes, Geoffrey; Kirkby, Richard Brendon; Hall, Mark A. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002-06-01)
    This paper proposes a method for generating classifiers from large datasets by building a committee of simple base classifiers using a standard boosting algorithm. It allows the processing of large datasets even if the ...
  • Usability and open source software.

    Nichols, David M.; Twidale, Michael B. (University of Waikato, 2002-12-01)
    Open source communities have successfully developed many pieces of software although most computer users only use proprietary applications. The usability of open source software is often regarded as one reason for this ...
