  • Teahan, W.J.; Cleary, John G. (1997)
    High quality models of English text with performance approaching that of humans is important for many applications including spelling correction, speech recognition, OCR, and encryption. A number of different statistical ...
  • DeWar, Rhys; McQueen, Robert J. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995)
    This report discusses the use of machine learning tools to examine datasets extracted from a database of dairy cows. The objective of the study was to investigate whether these machine learning tools could extract meaningful ...
  • Jones, Steve; Cunningham, Sally Jo; McNab, Rodger J. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1998)
    As experimental digital library testbeds gain wider acceptance and develop significant user bases, it becomes important to investigate the ways in which users interact with the systems in practice. Transaction logs are one ...
  • Mitchell, R. Scott (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995)
    "Knowledge discovery" is one of the most recent and fastest growing fields of research in computer science. It combines techniques from machine learning and database technology to find and extract meaningful knowledge from ...
  • Cunningham, Sally Jo; Vallabh, Mahendra (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995)
    A large amount of research literature has recently become available on the Internet through "digital libraries". This migration of information from paper to electronic media promises to have a huge impact on the way that ...
  • Cunningham, Sally Jo; Littin, James; Witten, Ian H. (1997)
    Information retrieval systems provide access to collections of thousands, or millions, of documents, from which, by providing an appropriate description, users can recover any one. Typically, users iteratively refine the ...
  • McQueen, Robert J.; Garner, Stephen R.; Nevill-Manning, Craig G.; Witten, Ian H. (1994)
    Many techniques have been developed for abstracting, or "learning," rules and relationships from diverse data sets, in the hope that machines can help in the often tedious and error-prone process of acquiring knowledge ...
  • Cunningham, Sally Jo; Summers, Brent (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995)
    This paper describes an experiment in applying standard supervised machine learning algorithms (C4.5 and Induct) to the problem of developing subject classification rules for documents. These algorithms are found to produce ...
  • Frank, Eibe; Xu, Xin (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2003)
    Multi-instance learning is commonly tackled using special-purpose algorithms. Development of these algorithms has started because early experiments with standard propositional learners have failed to produce satisfactory ...
  • Cleary, John G.; Pearson, Murray W.; Kinawi, Husam (1994)
    The architecture for a shared memory CPU is described. The CPU allows for parallelism down to the level of single instructions and is tolerant of memory latency. All executable instructions and memory accesses are time ...
  • Cleary, John G.; Pearson, Murray W.; Kinawi, Husam (1994)
    The architecture for an optimistic, highly parallel, scalable, shared memory CPU - the WarpEngine - is described. The WarpEngine CPU allows for parallelism down to the level of single instructions and is tolerant of memory ...
  • Reeves, Steve; Streader, David (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2004)
    There has been much interest in components that combine the best of state-based and event-based approaches. The interface of a component can be thought of as its specification and substituting components with the same ...
  • Cunningham, Sally Jo; Dillon, Stuart M. (1996)
    This paper examines the patterns of multiple authorship in five information systems journals. Specifically, we determine the distribution of the number of authors per paper in this field, the proportion of male and female ...
  • Paynter, Gordon W.; Witten, Ian H. (1999)
    Computer users often face iterative tasks that cannot be automated using the tools and aggregation techniques provided by their application program: they end up performing the iteration by hand, repeating user interface ...
  • Hall, Mark A.; Holmes, Geoffrey (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2000)
    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 ...
  • Hall, Mark A.; Holmes, Geoffrey (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2002)
    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 ...
  • Inglis, Stuart J.; Witten, Ian H. (1996)
    Most bi-level images stored on computers today comprise scanned text, and their number is escalating because of the drive to archive large volumes of paper-based material electronically. These documents are stored using ...
  • Cunningham, Sally Jo; Empson, Nic; Kamau, Rawinia (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995)
    The field of bibliometrics provides a set of quantitative methods for understanding how scientific information is created and disseminated by examining the structure, rather than the content, of subject documents. Bibliographic ...
  • Ting, Kai Ming; Zheng, Zijian (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1998)
    This paper explores two boosting techniques for cost-sensitive tree classification in the situation where misclassification costs change very often. Ideally, one would like to have only one induction, and use the induced ...
  • Cunningham, Sally Jo; Alqurashi, Hayat; Hinze, Annika; Vanderschantz, Nicholas; Timpany, Claire; Heese, Ralf (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2013)
    Library users should be conveniently interact with collections and be able to easily choose books of interest as they explore and browse a physical book collection. While there exists a growing body of naturalistic studies ...
