  • INTERACTING with sketched interface designs: an evaluation study

    Plimmer, Beryl; Apperley, Mark (ACM Press, 2004)
    Digital hand-drawn sketches provide a new and unique way of interacting with a prototype user interface design while it is still rendered as a sketch. The successful use of prototypes and scenarios for exploring design ...
  • Microbial biogeography of 925 geothermal springs in New Zealand

    Power, Jean F.; Carere, Carlo R.; Lee, Charls K.; Wakerley, Georgia L.J.; Evans, David W.; Button, Mathew; White, Duncan; Climo, Melissa D.; Hinze, Annika; Morgan, Xochitl C.; McDonald, Ian R.; Cary, S. Craig; Stott, Matthew B. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Geothermal springs are model ecosystems to investigate microbial biogeography as they represent discrete, relatively homogenous habitats, are distributed across multiple geographical scales, span broad geochemical gradients, ...
  • Difference in details: transfer learning case study of "cryptic" plants and moths

    Vetrova, Varvara; Coup, Sheldon; Frank, Eibe; Cree, Michael J. (2018)
    Can we classify species of very similar looking organisms quickly and accurately using only out of the box feature transfer? What if we only have small number of images? This experimental paper is part of on-going project ...
  • Latin squares with no transversals

    Cavenagh, Nicholas J.; Wanless, Ian M. (2017)
    Ak-plex in a latin square of ordernis a selection of kn entries that includes k representatives from each row and column and k occurrences of each symbol. A 1-plex is also known as a transversal. It is well known that ...
  • Towards one global privacy law

    Ko, Ryan K.L.; Rodrigues, Mark; Ladur, Aleksey; Scoon, Craig (Asia Global Institute (AGI), 2018)
    A unified, global data privacy framework is becoming essential for the unhindered development of business across borders. For researchers at the Data Privacy Foundation in New Zealand, this can only be achieved in Asia via ...
  • MetropolJS: Visualizing and debugging large-scale JavaScript program structure with treemaps

    Scarsbrook, Joshua D.; Ko, Ryan K.L.; Rogers, Bill; Bainbridge, David (ACM, 2018)
    As a result of the large scale and diverse composition of modern compiled JavaScript applications, comprehending overall program structure for debugging is challenging. In this paper we present our solution: MetropolJS. ...
  • A Framework for Compositional Synthesis of Modular Nonblocking Supervisors

    Mohajerani, Sahar; Malik, Robi; Fabian, Martin (IEEE, 2014)
    This paper describes a framework for compositional supervisor synthesis, which is applicable to all discrete event systems modeled as a set of deterministic automata. Compositional synthesis exploits the modular structure ...
  • Selecting one from many: The development of a scalable visualization tool

    Apperley, Mark; Spence, Robert; Wittenburg, Kent (IEEE, 2001)
    This paper describes visualisation tools to support the task of selecting one object from a collection of many on the basis of its attribute values. For this frequently encountered task we identify a set of tools appropriate ...
  • Modelling Energy Balance and Storage in the Design of Smart Microgrids

    Apperley, Mark (IARIA XPS PRESS, 2017)
    This paper introduces and demonstrates appropriate and realistic modelling approaches for smart microgrids, with a focus on local energy balance. There is an increasing interest in microgrids, as the nature of large-scale ...
  • Hangarau me te Māori: Māori and technology

    Keegan, Te Taka Adrian Gregory; Sciascia, Acushla Dee (Auckland University Press, 2018)
    A sign of a vibrant, healthy developing nation is the adaptation and uptake of new technologies. Māori have a long, but mostly unrecognised, history of ingenious innovation and adaption of new technologies. This chapter ...
  • Characterising Sound Visualisations of Specifications using Micro-charts and Refinement

    Pilbrow, Collin; Reeves, Steve (IEEE, 2017)
    For validation or for communication with a client, it is useful to create a visualisation of a specification. It is important that the visualisation does not mislead the user. In this work we look at how to characterise ...
  • Enhancing regulatory compliance by using artificial intelligence text mining to identify penalty clauses in legislation

    Goltz, Nachshon (Sean); Mayo, Michael (2017)
    As regulatory compliance (or compliance governance) becomes ever more challenging, attempts to engage IT solutions and especially artificial intelligence (AI) are on the rise. This paper suggest that regulatory compliance ...
  • At the nexus of data and collections: new affordances in the age of mass-scale digital libraries

    Downie, J. Stephen; Lorang, Elizabeth; Soh, Leen-Kiat; Bainbridge, David; McIntyre, Sandra; Page, Kevin (ACM, 2018)
    Within the context of mass-scale digital libraries, this panel will explore methodologies and uses for-as well as the results of- conceiving of "data as collections" and "collections as data." The panel will explore the ...
  • MEDDLEing with digital library searches: surmounting user model and system misalignments through lightweight bespoke proxying

    Bainbridge, David; Hinze, Annika; Cunningham, Sally Jo; Downie, J. Stephen (ACM, 2018)
    We document how surprisingly easy it is for user misconceptions to arise when using digital library search interfaces, and the significant unseen impact this can have on the user's interpretation of search results. Further, ...
  • Algebraic invariants arising from the chromatic polynomials of theta graphs

    Delbourgo, Daniel; Morgan, Kerri (CMSA (Inc.), 2014)
    This paper investigates some algebraic properties of the chromatic polynomials of theta graphs, i.e. graphs which have three internally disjoint paths sharing the same two distinct end vertices. We give a complete description ...
  • Seeding strategies for semantic disambiguation

    Hinze, Annika; Bainbridge, David; Wilkins, Rebekah; Taube-Schock, Craig; Downie, J. Stephen (ACM, 2018)
    Semantic disambiguation determines the meaning of words and phrases in a text, for which we use an automatically-generated Concept-in-Context (CiC) network. Words and phrases rarely belong to a single concept; disambiguation ...
