Artificial Development and Evolution using Common Developmental Genomes
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:251, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Developmental biology seeks to understand how organisms are constructed. Development is a set of very complex processes involving a coded program as the organisms’ genome. This genome describes how to build the organism, ...
Real-time segmentation of 3D echocardiograms using a state estimation approach with deformable models
(Doctoral Theses at NTNU, 1503-8181; 2010:55, Doctoral thesis, 2010)
Cardiac ultrasound, or echocardiography, is considered to be the quickest and most cost effective imaging modality for assessment of cardiac function. The modality is unique in that it allows for real-time imaging of the ...
Open-Domain Word-Level Interpretation of Norwegian: Towards a General Encyclopedic Question-Answering System for Norwegian
(Doctoral Theses at NTNU, 1503-8181; 2010:11, Doctoral thesis, 2010)
No large-scale, open-domain semantic resource for Norwegian, with a rich number of semantic relations currently exists. The existing semantic resources for Norwegian are either limited in size and/or incompatible with the ...
Exploring Structural and Dynamical Factors in the Evolution of Artificial Neural Networks
(Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 2010:61, Doctoral thesis, 2010)
Real-world networks, such as the network of neurons in the brain, have structural and dynamical properties that distinguish them from artificially created networks. This thesis studies how a selection of these properties ...
Computing in Unstructured Matter
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:90, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Towards Spectral Mathematical Morphology
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:372, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Providing not only spatial information but also spectral measures as a function of wavelength, hyperspectral imaging boasts a much greater accuracy than traditional grayscale and color imaging. For this capability, ...
Improving the Energy-Efficiency of Task Based Programming on Chip Multiprocessors
(Doctoral theses at NTNU, 2017:175, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
In the early 2000s, the superscalar CPU paradigm reached the point of diminishing returns mainly due to power requirements and overheating concerns. Faced with a constant demand for performance, hardware developers were ...
Survival of the Transition of Records and Their Usability over Several Decades
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:247, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
The theme of this thesis is preserving digital information over several decades or forever. The thesis is concerned with the provision of a suitable preservation strategy to help curators rescue digital information from ...
Secure information sharing in Integrated Operations
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:358, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
The oil and gas industry in Norway is moving towards Integrated Operations (IO) to provide better, safer and more cost-effective operations. IO, as it is envisioned, will rely on extensive sharing of information and resources ...
Adapting Requirements Specification Techniques for Mobile Information Systems
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:171, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Mobile Information Systems technologies provide capabilities for using/handling information on the move and the motto has become anytime and anywhere computing. Thus, mobility-related requirements have become vital, but ...
