    Witten, Ian H.; Paynter, Gordon W.; Frank, Eibe; Gutwin, Carl; Nevill-Manning, Craig G. (Information Science Publishing, 2005)
    Keyphrases provide semantic metadata that summarize and characterize documents. This paper describes Kea, an algorithm for automatically extracting keyphrases from text. Kea identifies candidate keyphrases using lexical ...
  • Interactive machine learning: letting users build classifiers

    Ware, Malcolm; Frank, Eibe; Holmes, Geoffrey; Hall, Mark; Witten, Ian H. (Elsevier, 2001-09-01)
    According to standard procedure, building a classifier using machine learning is a fully automated process that follows the preparation of training data by a domain expert. In contrast, interactive machine learning engages ...
  • Applying additive logistic regression to data derived from sensors monitoring behavioral and physiological characteristics of dairy cows to detect lameness

    Kamphuis, C; Frank, Eibe; Burke, JK; Verkerk, GA; Jago, JG (ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2013-11-01)
    The hypothesis was that sensors currently available on farm that monitor behavioral and physiological characteristics have potential for the detection of lameness in dairy cows. This was tested by applying additive logistic ...
  • Ensembles of balanced nested dichotomies for multi-class problems

    Dong, Lin; Frank, Eibe; Kramer, Stefan (SPRINGER-VERLAG BERLIN, 2005-01-01)
    A system of nested dichotomies is a hierarchical decomposition of a multi-class problem with c classes into c−1 two-class problems and can be represented as a tree structure. Ensembles of randomly generated nested dichotomies ...
  • Text categorization using compression models

    Frank, Eibe; Chui, Chang; Witten, Ian H. (IEEE, 2000-03)
    Summary form only given. Test categorization is the assignment of natural language texts to predefined categories based on their concept. The use of predefined categories implies a "supervised learning" approach to ...
  • On approximating the shape of one-dimensional posterior marginals using the low discrepancy points

    Joshi, Chaitanya; Brown, Paul T.; Joe, Stephen (TAYLOR & FRANCIS INC, 2021-11-29)
    A method to approximate Bayesian posterior by evaluating it on a low discrepancy sequence (LDS) point set has recently been proposed. However, this method does not focus on finding the posterior marginals. Finding posterior ...
  • Visualizing class probability estimators

    Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark (SPRINGER-VERLAG BERLIN, 2003-01-01)
    Inducing classifiers that make accurate predictions on future data is a driving force for research in inductive learning. However, also of importance to the users is how to gain information from the models produced. ...
  • Oblique and rippled heliosphere structures from the Interstellar Boundary Explorer.

    Zirnstein, Eric J.; Shrestha, Bishwas L.; McComas, David J.; Dayeh, Maher A.; Heerikhuisen, Jacob; Reisenfeld, Daniel B.; Sokół, Justyna M.; Swaczyna, Paweł (Nature Research, 2022)
    Past analysis has shown that the heliosphere structure can be deduced from correlations between long-scale solar wind pressure evolution and energetic neutral atom emissions. However, this required spatial and temporal ...
  • Numerical confirmations of joint spike transitions in G (2) cosmologies

    Lim, Woei Chet (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2022-03-17)
    We produce numerical evidence that the joint spike transitions between Kasner eras of G2 cosmologies are described by the non-orthogonally transitive G2 spike solution. A new matching procedure is developed for this purpose.
