  • Project StORe: expectations, a solution and some predicted impact from opening up the research data portfolio 

    Pryor, Graham (2007)
    Presentation slides for talk given at the 2007 Libraries without Walls conference
  • Project StORe: expectations, a solution and some predicted impact from opening up the research data portfolio 

    Pryor, Graham (2007-09)
    A fundamental role of the university library has long been recognised as the provision of safe custody and the assurance of measured access to the wealth of published scholarship. Traditionally, the library has been ...
  • The pronunciation of unfamiliar native and non-native town names. 

    Fitt, Susan (International Speech Communication Association, 1995)
    This paper will discuss pronunciations of unfamiliar names, both British and foreign, by native speakers of English. Most studies which look at peoples' pronunciations of unfamiliar or pseudowords are based on English ...
  • Pronunciation Variation in ASR: Which Variation to Model? 

    Wester, Mirjam; Kessens, Judith M; Strik, Helmer (International Speech Communication Association, 2000-10)
    This paper describes how the performance of a continuous speech recognizer for Dutch has been improved by modeling within-word and cross-word pronunciation variation. A relative improvement of 8.8% in WER was found compared ...
  • Prosodic phrase segmentation by pitch pattern clustering 

    Shimodaira, Hiroshi; Nakai, Mitsuru (IEEE, 1994-04)
    This paper proposes a novel method for detecting the optimal sequence of prosodic phrases from continuous speech based on data-driven approach. The pitch pattern of input speech is divided into prosodic segments which ...
  • Proximity coherence for chip multiprocessors 

    Fensch, C.; Barrow-Williams, N.; Moore, S. (2010-11-26)
    Many-core architectures provide an efficient way of harnessing the increasing numbers of transistors available in modern fabrication processes. While they are similar to multi-node systems, they exhibit different communication ...
  • Public perception of desalinated versus recycled water in Australia 

    Dolnicar, Sara; Schäfer, Andrea (2006)
    Water resources are limited in both quantity and quality. The global water cycle is a closed system with water molecules being continuously taken in and excreted by living organisms. In this continuum of recycling takes ...
  • Punctuation annotation using statistical prosody models. 

    Christensen, Heidi; Gotoh, Yoshihiko; Renals, Steve (2001)
    This paper is about the development of statistical models of prosodic features to generate linguistic meta-data for spoken language. In particular, we are concerned with automatically punctuating the output of a broadcast ...
  • Qualitative Causal Analysis of Empirical Knowledge for Ontology Evolution in Physics 

    Lehmann, J.; Bundy, Alan; Chan, M. (2010-08-16)
    Ontology evolution and its automation are key factors for achieving software’s flexibility and adaptability. In the approach to automated ontology evolution adopted in the GALILEO project, progress in physics is modelled ...
  • Raising the Standard of AI Products 

    Bundy, Alan; Clutterbuck, R. (1985)
    We propose a mechanism for the promotion of high-standards in commercial Artificial Intelligence products, namely an association of companies which would regulate their own membership using a code of practice and the ...
  • The Rationality of Habitual Actions 

    Pollard, Bill (University of Durham and University of Bergen, 2005)
    We are creatures of habit. Familiar ways of doing things in familiar contexts become automatic for us. That is to say, when we acquire a habit we can act without thinking about it at all. Habits free our minds to think ...
  • Realizing Dexterous Manipulation with Structured Manifolds using UKR with Structural Hints 

    Steffen, Jan; Klanke, Stefan; Vijayakumar, Sethu; Ritter, Helge (2009)
    Dextrous manipulation based on techniques for non-linear dimension reduction and manifold learning is an upcoming field of research and offers promising opportunities. Still, many problems remain unsolved and researchers ...
  • Recent development of the HMM-based speech synthesis system (HTS) 

    Zen, Heiga; Oura, Keiichiro; Nose, Takashi; Yamagishi, Junichi; Sako, Shinji; Toda, Tomoki; Masuko, Takashi; Black, Alan W; Tokuda, Keiichi (2009)
    A statistical parametric approach to speech synthesis based on hidden Markov models (HMMs) has grown in popularity over the last few years. In this approach, spectrum, excitation, and duration of speech are simultaneously ...
  • Recent improvements to the Abbot large vocabulary CSR system. 

    Hochberg, Mike; Renals, Steve; Robinson, Tony; Cook, Gary (IEEE, 1995)
    ABBOT is the hybrid connectionist-hidden Markov model (HMM) large-vocabulary continuous speech recognition (CSR) system developed at Cambridge University. This system uses a recurrent network to estimate the acoustic ...
  • Recognition and interpretation of meetings: The AMI and AMIDA projects 

    Renals, Steve; Hain, Thomas; Bourlard, Herve (IEEE, 2007)
    The AMI and AMIDA projects are concerned with the recognition and interpretation of multiparty meetings. Within these projects we have: developed an infrastructure for recording meetings using multiple microphones and ...
  • Recognition and Understanding of Meetings 

    Renals, Steve (2010)
    This paper is about interpreting human communication in meetings using audio, video and other signals. Automatic meeting recognition and understanding is extremely challenging, since communication in a meeting is spontaneous ...
  • Recognition and Understanding of Meetings: Overview of the European AMI and AMIDA Projects 

    Bourlard, Herve; Renals, Steve (2008)
    The AMI and AMIDA projects are concerned with the recognition and interpretation of multiparty (face-to-face and remote) meetings. Within these projects we have developed the following: (1) an infrastructure for recording ...
  • Recognition, indexing and retrieval of British broadcast news with the THISL system. 

    Robinson, Tony; Abberley, Dave; Kirby, David; Renals, Steve (International Speech Communication Association, 1999)
    This paper described the THISL spoken document retrieval system for British and North American Broadcast News. The system is based on the ABBOT large vocabulary speech recognizer and a probabilistic text retrieval system. ...
  • Reconstructing Null-space Policies Subject to Dynamic Task Constraints in Redundant Manipulators 

    Howard, Matthew; Vijayakumar, Sethu (2007)
    We consider the problem of direct policy learning in situations where the policies are only observable through their projections into the null-space of a set of dynamic, non-linear task constraints. We tackle the issue ...
