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) ...
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 ...
Computing in Unstructured Matter
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:90, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
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 ...
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, ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
Novel Approaches to Group Recommendation
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:115, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Recommendation systems are extensively used to provide a constantly increasing variety of services. Alongside single-user recommendation systems, group recommendation systems have emerged as a method of identifying the ...
Database Content Exploration and Exploratory Analysis of User Queries
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:205, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Content providers, such as enterprises and organizations who publish their content on the Internet, aim at making their content visible and easily accessible to the users. The vast amount of data contained in databases ...
