    • Automatic analysis of naturalistic hand-over-face gestures 

      Mahmoud, Marwa; Baltrušaitis, Tadas; Robinson, Peter (ACM, 2014-11-12)
      One of the main factors that limit the accuracy of facial analysis systems is hand occlusion. As the face becomes occluded, facial features are either lost, corrupted or erroneously detected. Hand-over-face occlusions are ...
    • Automatic Bayesian polarity determination 

      Pugh, D. J.; White, R. S.; Christie, P. A. F. (Wiley, 2016-04-20)
      The polarity of the first motion of a seismic signal from an earthquake is an important constraint in earthquake source inversion. Microseismic events often have low signal-to-noise ratios, which may lead to difficulties ...
    • Automatic design of sheet metal forming processes by “un-forming” 

      Loukaides, E. G.; Allwood, J. M. (Elsevier, 2016-04-23)
      Most sheet metal components are made by deep drawing, which requires expensive tooling. Although many new flexible forming processes have been invented, they have largely not had industrial application, so it would be ...
    • Automatic discovery and optimization of chemical processes 

      Houben, Claudia; Lapkin, Alexei A. (Elsevier, 2015-07-20)
      This paper presents the first overview of recent developments in techniques and methods that enable closed-loop optimization, also sometimes called ‘self optimization’, as well as discovery in different areas of molecular ...
    • Automatic Extraction of Learner Errors in ESL Sentences Using Linguistically Enhanced Alignments 

      Felice, Mariano; Bryant, Christopher; Briscoe, Ted (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2016)
      We propose a new method of automatically extracting learner errors from parallel English as a Second Language (ESL) sentences in an effort to regularise annotation formats and reduce inconsistencies. Specifically, given ...
    • Automatic facial expression analysis 

      Baltrušaitis, Tadas (2014-04-08)
      Humans spend a large amount of their time interacting with computers of one type or another. However, computers are emotionally blind and indifferent to the affective states of their users. Human-computer interaction which ...
    • Automatic induction of verb classes using clustering 

      Sun, Lin (2013-04-30)
      Verb classifications have attracted a great deal of interest in both linguistics and natural language processing (NLP). They have proved useful for important tasks and applications, including e.g. computational lexicography, ...
    • Automatic model construction with Gaussian processes 

      Duvenaud, David (2014-11-11)
      This thesis develops a method for automatically constructing, visualizing and describing a large class of models, useful for forecasting and finding structure in domains such as time series, geological formations, and ...
    • Automatic Prediction of Impressions in Time and across Varying Context: Personality, Attractiveness and Likeability 

      Celiktutan, O.; Gunes, H. (IEEE, 2015-12-30)
      In this paper, we propose a novel multimodal framework for automatically predicting the impressions of extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, openness, attractiveness and likeability continuously in ...
    • Automatic recognition of ancient Syriac handwriting. 

      Fernando, Pathirajaliyanage Prem Jayalath. (2005-01-18)
    • Automatic Test Image Generation using Procedural Noise 

      Patrick, Matthew; Castle, Matthew D.; Stutt, Richard O. J. H.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (IEEE, 2016)
      It is difficult to test programs that input images, due to the large number of (pixel) values that must be chosen and the complex ways these values interact. Typically, such programs are tested manually, using images that ...
    • Automatic Text Scoring Using Neural Networks 

      Alikaniotis, Dimitrios; Yannakoudakis, Helen; Rei, Marek (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2016)
      Automated Text Scoring (ATS) provides a cost-effective and consistent alternative to human marking. However, in order to achieve good performance, the predictive features of the system need to be manually engineered ...
    • Automatic Transcription of Multi-genre Media Archives 

      Lanchantin, Pierre; Bell, P. J.; Gales, M. J. F.; Hain, T.; Liu, X.; Long, Y.; Quinnell, J. et al. (2013)
      This paper describes some recent results of our collaborative work on developing a speech recognition system for the automatic transcription or media archives from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The material ...
    • Automatic Tuning Matching Cycler (ATMC) In Situ NMR Spectroscopy as a Novel Approach for Real-Time Investigations of Li- and Na-Ion Batteries 

      Pecher, Oliver; Bayley, Paul M.; Liu, Hao; Liu, Zigeng; Trease, Nicole M.; Grey, Clare P. (Elsevier, 2016-02-17)
      We have developed and explored the use of a new Automatic Tuning Matching Cycler (ATMC) in situ NMR probe system to track the formation of intermediate phases and investigate electrolyte decomposition during electrochemical ...
    • Automatically Grading Learners’ English Using a Gaussian Process 

      van Dalen, Rogier C.; Knill, Kate M.; Gales, Mark J. F. (ISCA, 2015-08-04)
      There is a high demand around the world for the learning of English as a second language. Correspondingly, there is a need to assess the proficiency level of learners both during their studies and for formal qualifications. ...
    • The automation of wood-cutting 

      Dugan, David (2004-08-17)
      Simon Schaffer explores the development of specific wood-cutting engines, run by steam. These allowed precision cutting and the mass production of standardised blocks. Prior to this development, wood-cutting was done with ...
    • Automorphisms of free products of groups 

      Griffin, James Thomas (2013-02-05)
      The symmetric automorphism group of a free product is a group rich in algebraic structure and with strong links to geometric configuration spaces. In this thesis I describe in detail and for the first time the (co)homology ...
    • Automorphy of some residually dihedral Galois representations 

      Thorne, Jack A. (Springer, 2015-05-08)
      We establish the automorphy of some families of 2-dimensional representations of the absolute Galois group of a totally real field, which do not satisfy the so-called ‘Taylor–Wiles hypothesis’. We apply this to the problem ...
    • Automorphy of some residually S$_5$ Galois representations 

      Khare, Chandrashekhar B.; Thorne, Jack A. (Springer, 2016)
      Let $\textit{F}$ be a totally real field and $\textit{p}$ an odd prime. We prove an automorphy lifting theorem for geometric representations $\rho$ : $\textit{G}_F$ → GL$_2$($\bar{\Bbb Q}_p$) which lift irreducible residual ...
