  • Machine learning and statistics: a matter of perspective

    Cunningham, Sally Jo (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995-04)
    Information has become an important commercial commodity-indeed, possibly the most important product of the future. While we have well-developed technologies to store data, the analysis to extract information is time-consuming ...
  • Machine learning applied to fourteen agricultural datasets

    Thomson, Kirsten; McQueen, Robert J. (1996-09)
    This document reports on an investigation conducted between November, 1995 and March, 1996 into the use of machine learning on 14 sets of data supplied by agricultural researchers in New Zealand. Our purpose here is to ...
  • Machine learning approaches for malware classification based on hybrid artefacts

    Chanajitt, Rajchada (The University of Waikato, 2023)
    Malware could be developed and transformed into various forms to deceive users and evade antivirus and security endpoint detection. Furthermore, if one machine in the network is compromised, it could be used for lateral ...
  • Machine Learning for Adaptive Computer Game Opponents

    This document outlines various machine learning approaches that were taken in an effort to surrogate numerical models Python Ablation Code 1-Dimension (PAC1D) and Scalable Effects Simulation Environment (SESE), with the ...
  • Machine learning identifies ecological selectivity patterns across the end-Permian mass extinction

    Foster, William J.; Ayzel, Georgy; Münchmeyer, Jannes; Rettelbach, Tabea; Kitzmann, Niklas H.; Isson, Terry T.; Mutti, Maria; Aberhan, Martin (Cambridge University Press, 2022)
    The end-Permian mass extinction occurred alongside a large swath of environmental changes that are often invoked as extinction mechanisms, even when a direct link is lacking. One way to elucidate the cause(s) of a mass ...
  • Machine learning in practice: experience with agricultural databases

    Garner, Stephen R.; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Holmes, Geoffrey; Nevill-Manning, Craig G.; Witten, Ian H. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 1995-05)
    The Waikato Environment for Knowledge Analysis (weka) is a New Zealand government-sponsored initiative to investigate the application of machine learning to economically important problems in the agricultural industries. ...
  • Machine translation for te reo Māori

    Keegan, Te Taka Adrian Gregory (Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao / Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies, the University of Waikato, 2017)
    What is Machine Translation? Machine Translation (MT) is a process where computer software is used to translate texts from one natural (or spoken) language to another. Early research centred on two distinct approaches: ...
  • Machine vision system grading of pine tree seedlings

    McGuinness, Benjamin John; Duke, Mike (2017)
    A PC-based machine vision system for grading pine tree seedlings has been tested at a forestry nursery. The machine has been designed to be implemented in the field at the point of harvesting, removing the need for extra ...
  • MacKinder meets Buzan: A Geopolitical Extension to Security complex Theory with an emphasis on the Polar Regions

    Gibbs, Denis Richard (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Throughout the centuries interstate wars have been fought over territory to satisfy the requirement of states’ to secure sufficient land and resources to meet the lifestyle needs and economic aspirations of their citizens. ...
  • Macroclimate and topography interact to influence the abundance of divaricate plants in New Zealand

    Lusk, Christopher H.; Wiser, Susan K.; Laughlin, Daniel C. (Frontiers Media SA, 2020)
    The abundance of the divaricate growth form in New Zealand has been interpreted as either (a) the response of an isolated flora to cool, dry, Plio-Pleistocene climates; or (b) a defense against large browsing birds (moa) ...
  • Macrofossil biofacies in the late Neogene of central Hawke's Bay: applications to palaeogeography

    Bland, Kyle J.; Hendy, Austin J.W.; Kamp, Peter J.J.; Nelson, Campbell S. (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    The Late Miocene–Early Pleistocene (Tongaporutuan–Nukumaruan) sedimentary succession in the forearc basin in central and western Hawke's Bay, encompassed by the Tolaga and Mangaheia Groups, comprises a wide variety of ...
  • Macrofossils and pollen representing forests of the pre-Taupo volcanic eruption (c. 1850 yr BP) era at Pureora and Benneydale, central North Island, New Zealand.

    Clarkson, Beverley R.; McGlone, Matt S.; Lowe, David J.; Clarkson, Bruce D. (R S N Z Publishing, 1995-06-01)
    Micro- and macrofossil data from the remains of forests overwhelmed and buried at Pureora and Benneydale during the Taupo eruption (c. 1850 conventional radiocarbon yr BP) were compared. Classification of relative abundance ...
  • Macroinvertebrates and water quality: a teaching guide

    Hicks, Brendan J. (University of Waikato, 2002)
    Streams support a diverse community of plants and animals on or in the stream bed. These organisms comprise the benthos. Among the benthos are worms, molluscs, crustaceans, and larval insects. Insect larvae are usually the ...
