  • Indexing and retrieval of broadcast news 

    Renals, Steve; Abberley, Dave; Kirby, David; Robinson, Tony (Elsevier Science B.V., 2000-09)
    This paper describes a spoken document retrieval (SDR) system for British and North American Broadcast News. The system is based on a connectionist large vocabulary speech recognizer and a probabilistic information ...
  • Infertility in Malawi: exploring its impact and social consequences 

    de Kok, Christina (CRFR, 2008-12)
    Infertility is a serious personal, social and public health issue in developing countries such as Malawi. Infertility is often a ‘hidden’ problem in this context as the policy and service emphasis is on issues like infant ...
  • Inflammatory pathways in the mechanism of parturition 

    Norman, J. E.; Bollapragada, S.; Yuan, M.; Nelson, S. M. (BioMed Central, 2007-06)
    Increasing evidence suggests that parturition is an inflammatory process. In this brief overview, inflammatory events occurring in association with parturition, and the mechanism by which they may contribute to labour and ...
  • Inflammatory resolution: New opportunities for drug discovery 

    Gilroy, Derek W; Lawrence, Toby; Perretti, Mauro; Rossi, Adriano G (Nature Publishing Group, 2004-05)
    Treatment of inflammatory diseases today is largely based on interrupting the synthesis or action of mediators that drive the host’s response to injury. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, steroids and antihistamines, for ...
  • The influence of pH on losses of analyte estradiol in sample pre-filtration 

    Neale, Peta A.; Pronk, Wouter; Schäfer, Andrea (Mary Anne Liebert, Inc, 2009)
    Cellulose acetate 0.45-μm syringe filters could be used to filter environmental samples containing steroidal hormones, such as estradiol, prior to analysis. Such pretreatment may result in significant loss of analyte due ...
  • The influence of phonemic awareness development on acoustic cue weighting in children's speech perception 

    Mayo, Catherine; Scobbie, James M; Hewlett, Nigel; Waters, Daphne (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2003)
    In speech perception, children give particular patterns of weight to different acoustic cues (their cue weighting). These patterns appear to change with increased linguistic experience. Previous speech perception research ...
  • The influence of simplified peroxy radical chemistry on the interpretation of NO2–NO–O3 surface exchange 

    Heal, Mathew R (Elsevier, 2001)
    Reactions of NO with peroxy radicals XO2 (=HO2+RO2) are shown to be the most important chemical reactions causing flux divergence of NO2 and NO close to the surface, in addition to the "NOx–O3 only" reactions of ...
  • The influence of spectral distinctiveness on acoustic cue weighting in children's and adults' speech perception 

    Mayo, Catherine; Turk, Alice (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-09)
    Children and adults appear to weight some acoustic cues differently in perceiving certain speech contrasts. One possible explanation for this difference is that children and adults make use of different strategies in the ...
  • The Influence of Travelling Fires on a Concrete Frame 

    Law, Angus; Stern-Gottfried, Jamie; Gillie, Martin; Rein, Guillermo (Journal of Engineering Structures - Elsevier, 2011)
    When building fires occur in large, open, compartments they rarely burn uniformly across an entire floor plate of a structure. Instead, they tend to travel, igniting fuel in their path and burning it out as they move to ...
  • The influence of weather-type and long-range transport on airborne particle concentrations in Edinburgh, UK 

    Buchanan, C M; Beverland, Iain J; Heal, Mathew R (Elsevier, 2002)
    This study investigated the influence of regional-scale synoptic weather type and geographical source regions of air masses on two-particle concentration metrics (Black Smoke (BS) and PM10) in the city of Edinburgh, UK, ...
  • Information about Complex Fingertip Parameters in Individual Human Tactile Afferent Neurons 

    Saal, Hannes; Vijayakumar, Sethu; Johansson, Roland (Society for Neuroscience, 2009)
    Although information in tactile afferent neurons represented by firing rates has been studied extensively over nearly a century, recent studies suggest that precise spike timing might be more important than firing rates. ...
  • Information extraction from broadcast news 

    Gotoh, Yoshihiko; Renals, Steve (The Royal Society, 2000-04-15)
    This paper discusses the development of trainable statistical models for extracting content from television and radio news broadcasts. In particular, we concentrate on statistical finite-state models for identifying proper ...
  • Information Storage Using Supramolecular Surface Patterns 

    Cavallini, Massimiliano; Biscarini, Fabio; Léon, Salvador; Zerbetto, Francesco; Bottari, Giovanni; Leigh, David A (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2003-01-24)
  • Information Storage Using Supramolecular Surface Patterns 

    Cavallini, Massimiliano; Biscarini, Fabio; Léon, Salvador; Zerbetto, Francesco; Bottari, Giovanni; Leigh, David A (AMER ASSOC ADVANCEMENT SCIENCE, WASHINGTON, 2003)
    Novel strategies forinformation storage technology rely upon multistable systems that can be controllably switched between different configurations of comparable free energy. Multistability is present in many molecular and ...
