Geometric Modeling for Planning of Liver Resection Procedures
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:174, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
Multi-modality quality assessment for unconstrained biometric samples
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:171, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
The aim of this research is to investigate multi-modality biometric image quality assessment methods for unconstrained samples. Studies of biometrics noted the significance of sample quality for a recognition system or a ...
Energy Efficient Computing on Multi-core Processors: Vectorization and Compression Techniques
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:143, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
Over the past few years, energy consumption has become the main limiting factor for computing in general. This has led CPU vendors to aggressively promote parallel computing using multiple cores without significantly ...
ImageCL and Other Techniques and Tools for Optimizing Applications Utilizing Heterogeneous Computing
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:92, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
Several technological and economic trends have recently caused a rise in the use and adoption of systems with heterogeneous and parallel hardware. These systems include different computing devices with different architectures, ...
Semantic Search with Knowledge Bases
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:88, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
Over the past decade, modern search engines have made significant progress towards better understanding searchers' intents and providing them with more focused answers, a paradigm that is called \semantic search." Semantic ...
Accelerating Sparse Linear Algebra and Deep Neural Networks on Reconfigurable Platforms
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:1, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
Regardless of whether the chosen figure of merit is execution time, throughput, battery life for an embedded system or total cost of ownership for a datacenter, today’s computers are fundamentally limited by their energy ...
Improving Document Classification Using Ontologies
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:44, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
We are living in the age of internet where massive amount of information is produced from various digital resources on daily basis. The information of these resources is typically stored in unstructured textual format such ...
New Insights into Content Production in Social Platforms
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:173, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
Social media influences to a great extent everyday life of millions of people, and therefore the understanding of certain patterns relating to online platforms and communities, and the ability to model and predict them, ...
Image quality in forensic CT imaging
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:294, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
What factors affect the diagnostic image quality in forensic computed tomography (CT) imaging? In this thesis I briefly present the main steps from CT scanning to diagnostics. The thesis is built on four core papers. The ...
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, ...
