  • Improving Affect Regulation in Eating Disorders: The Case for Positive Emotions 

    Rogowski, Augustina (The University of Edinburgh, 2011-11)
    Evidence from multiple studies suggests that regulation of emotions and intensity of affect may be relevant to understanding disordered eating. Emotion regulation concerns the ways in which emotions are managed in daily ...
  • Improving architectural 3D reconstruction by constrained modelling 

    Cantzler, Helmut (University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics., 2003-07)
    This doctoral thesis presents new techniques for improving the structural quality of automatically-acquired architectural 3D models. Common architectural properties such as parallelism and orthogonality of walls and ...
  • Improving data quality : data consistency, deduplication, currency and accuracy 

    Yu, Wenyuan (The University of Edinburgh, 2013-11-28)
    Data quality is one of the key problems in data management. An unprecedented amount of data has been accumulated and has become a valuable asset of an organization. The value of the data relies greatly on its quality. ...
  • Improving recognition performance by modelling pronunciation variation. 

    Kessens, Judith M; Wester, Mirjam (1997)
    This paper describes a method for improving the performance of a continuous speech recognizer by modelling pronunciation variation. Although the improvements obtained with this method are small, they are in line with those ...
  • Improving Semantics In Mobile Devices Profiling: A Model Conceptual Formalisation and Ontology Specification 

    Lino, N; Tate, Austin; Chen-Burger, Y-H (Springer, 2004-11)
    In this work we discuss and propose a new approach for semantic enhancement in mobile devices profiling. This work is motivated by the lack of semantic in existing profiling methods and is part of a broaden framework for ...
  • Improving statistical machine translation with linguistic information 

    Hoang, Hieu (The University of Edinburgh, 2011-11-24)
    Statistical machine translation (SMT) should benefit from linguistic information to improve performance but current state-of-the-art models rely purely on data-driven models. There are several reasons why prior efforts ...
  • Improving statistical speech recognition 

    Renals, Steve; Morgan, Nelson; Cohen, Michael; Franco, Horacio; Bourlard, Herve (IEEE, 1992-06)
    A summary of the theory of the hybrid connectionist HMM (hidden Markov model) continuous speech recognition system is presented. Experimental results indicating that the connectionist methods can significantly improve the ...
  • Improving The Generalization Performance Of The MCE/GPD Learning 

    Shimodaira, Hiroshi; Rokui, Jun; Nakai, Mitsuru (International Speech Communication Association, 1998-12)
    A novel method to prevent the over-fitting effect and improve the generalization performance of the Minimum Classification Error (MCE) / Generalized Probabilistic Descent (GPD) learning is proposed. The MCE/GPD method, ...
  • Improving the Performance of a Dutch CSR by Modeling Pronunciation Variation 

    Wester, Mirjam; Kessens, Judith M; Strik, Helmer (International Speech Communication Association, 1998-05)
    This paper describes how the performance of a continuous speech recognizer for Dutch has been improved by modeling pronunciation variation. We used three methods in order to model pronunciation variation. First, within-word ...
  • Improving the performance of a Dutch CSR by modeling within-word and cross-word pronunciation variation 

    Kessens, Judith M; Wester, Mirjam; Strik, Helmer (Elsevier, 1999)
    This article describes how the performance of a Dutch continuous speech recognizer was improved by modeling pronunciation variation. We propose a general procedure for modeling pronunciation variation. In short, it consists ...
  • Improving the performance of CP2K on HECToR 

    Bethune, Iain (2009-07-29)
    This report presents the results of a HECToR dCSE project to improve the performance of CP2K, a freely available and popular Density Functional Theory code, on HECToR. Building on a recently implemented domain decomposition ...
  • Improving the Performance of CP2K on the Cray XT 

    Bethune, Iain (The Cray User Group, 2010-05)
    CP2K is a freely available and increasingly popular Density Functional Theory code for the simulation of a wide range of systems. It is heavily used on many Cray XT systems, including ‘HECToR’ in the UK and ‘Monte Rosa’ ...
  • Improving the performance of GWW 

    Bethune, Iain (2010-08-09)
