  • Lou, Lu (Aberystwyth University, 2016)
    Phenotyping involves the measurement, ideally objectively, of characteristics or traits, usually in the context of living organisms, including plants. Traditionally, this is limited to either tedious and sparse manual ...
  • Hadley, Edward Michael (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2013)
    Abstract Mammographic risk assessment is concerned with estimating the probability of a woman developing breast cancer. The aim is to improve the likelihood of early detection of breast cancers. The leading factor in ...
  • Zhao, Yitian (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2013)
    Abstract Unlike traditional 2D images, which are projections of the real world onto a two-dimensional surface, 3D images express the geometry of the objects of interest directly in terms of a set of points, a mesh, or a ...
  • Scully, Peter M. D. (Aberystwyth University, 2016)
    This thesis has made advances in Distributed Self-Healing Security Systems (DSHSS) -- a tool for the future to defend against the problems faced by industrial automation computer networks, such as critical national ...
  • Naik, Nitin (Aberystwyth University, 2015)
    Designers of effective and efficient fuzzy systems have long recognised the value of inferential hybridity in the implementation of sparse fuzzy rule based systems. Which is to say: such systems should have recourse to ...
  • Ososinski, Marek (Aberystwyth University, 2016)
    Terrestrial laser scanning has become a popular way of digitising buildings and complex environments. Laser scanning was adopted as the means of capturing 3D data in many elds, including architecture, engineering and ...
  • Shen, Liang (Aberystwyth University, 2016)
    During the last several decades, many kinds of population based Evolutionary Algorithms have been developed and considerable work has been devoted to computational methods which are inspired by biological evolution and ...
  • Song, Jingping (Aberystwyth University, 2016)
    Intrusion detection is an important task for network operators in today’s Internet. Traditional network intrusion detection systems rely on either specialized signatures of previously seen attacks, or on labeled traffic ...
  • Diao, Ren (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2014)
    Abstract Feature selection is a term given to the problem of selecting important domain attributes which are most predictive of a given outcome. Unlike other dimensionality reduction methods, feature selection approaches ...
  • Chen, Chengyuan (Aberystwyth University, 2015)
    Fuzzy inference is an effective means for representing and handling vagueness and imprecision. As a particular type of fuzzy inference, fuzzy rule interpolation enhances the performance of the inference when a given ...
  • Su, Pan (Aberystwyth University, 2015)
    The assessment of academic journals is becoming more and more critical to many scientific activities. Such assessment can have a significant influence upon many issues ranging from publishing articles in academic journals ...
  • Bell, Jonathan (University of Wales AberystwythComputer Science, 2006)
    This thesis attempts to answer the question "Can we devise a language for interpretation of behavioural simulation of engineered systems (of arbitrary complexity) in terms of the systems’ purpose?" It does so by presenting ...
  • Sheldon, Michael (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2013)
    This thesis is concerned with the emergence of communication in arti cial agents as an integrated part of a more general developmental progression. We demonstrate how early gestural communication can emerge out of sensorimotor ...
  • Q, Claire Elizabeth (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2013)
    Abstract Can machine learning algorithms be trained to recognise beauty in music? To what extent is human recognition of beauty in music cultural, or crosscultural? Music is prevalent in all human cultures. Music ...
  • Chen, Zhili (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2013)
    ABSTRACT Breast cancer is currently the most common cancer among women worldwide. Mammography has been the most reliable and e ective screening tool for the early detection of breast cancer. Recently, computer-aided ...
  • Guymer, Gemma (Aberystwyth University, 2015)
    Venus Express is the first European mission to Venus and will help to answer questions such as: What governs the escape processes of the atmosphere? How did it end up with the atmospheric state it’s currently in? What ...
  • Mac Parthaláin, Neil (Aberystwyth University, 2009-09-23)
    Rough set theory (RST) was proposed as a mathematical tool to deal with the analysis of imprecise, uncertain or incomplete information or knowledge. It is of fundamental importance to artificial intelligence particularly ...
  • Riley, Michael (Aberystwyth UniversityComputer Science, 2009-03)
    This thesis documents the investigation into the acquisition of knowledge from biological data using computational methods for the discovery of significantly frequent patterns in gene location and phylogeny. Beginning ...
