Assessment and Design of Color Vision Deficiency Simulation and Daltonization Methods
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:8, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Color vision in humans evolved because it improves behavioral responses related, for example, to the guidance of attention, object recognition and detection of emotional states. However, people with color vision deficiencies ...
Engineering Efficient Similarity Search Methods
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:84, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Similarity search has become one of the important parts of many applications including multimedia retrieval, pattern recognition and machine learning. In this problem, the main task is to retrieve most similar (closest) ...
Computing in Unstructured Matter
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:90, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
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 ...
Automating Problem Analysis Using Knowledge Extracted from Text
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:94, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
In the knowledge economy, it is important to utilize existing knowledge effectively. Most of the knowledge people generate is captured in textual form, which makes the ability to read and apply the knowledge contained in ...
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, ...
A Rule-based Framework for Enhancing Architectural Decision Guidance
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:70, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Architectural decision-making is a non-trivial process for architects in software development projects. In many cases, such a process starts by identifying architectural issues that an architect should make decisions ...
Dynamically Controlled DNA Tiles: Looking Beyond the Self-assembly of Static Two-dimensional DNA-based Computational Structures
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:58, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Algorithmic self-assembly of DNA tiles enables computation and construction of DNA structures at the nanoscale, where the assembly process is guided by specific DNA interactions between complementary sticky-ends of tiles. ...
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, ...
Distributional Semantic Models for Clinical Text Applied to Health Record Summarization
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:134, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
As information systems in the health sector are becoming increasingly computerized, large amounts of care-related information are being stored electronically. In hospitals clinicians continuously document treatment and ...
