    • Automated measurement of concrete spalling through reinforcement detection 

      Paal, Stephanie German; Brilakis, Ioannis; DesRoches, Reginald (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2014-11-20)
      In emergency scenarios, immediate reconnaissance efforts are necessary. These efforts often take months to complete in full. While underway, building occupants are unable to return to their homes/businesses, and thus, the ...
    • Automated modal identification and tracking: application to an iron arch bridge 

      Cabboi, Alessandro; Magalhaes, Filipe; Gentile, Carmelo; Cunha, Alvaro (Wiley, 2016)
      Challenges concerning the automation of modal identification and tracking procedures in permanent monitoring systems for Structural Health Monitoring purposes are discussed. In this context, an automated procedure based ...
    • Automated modelling of viscoelastic flow using FEniCS 

      Molari, Luisa; Wells, G N (2006)
      Using high-level abstractions, it is possible to efficiently automate the development of finite element models. This has advantages in terms of rapid development, a dramatic reduction in programming errors and offers the ...
    • An automated online instrument to quantify aerosol-bound reactive oxygen species (ROS) for ambient measurement and health-relevant aerosol studies 

      Wragg, FPH; Fuller, SJ; Freshwater, R; Green, DC; Kelly, FJ; Kalberer, M (Copernicus, 2016-10-06)
      The adverse health effects associated with ambient aerosol particles have been well documented, but it is still unclear which aerosol properties are most important for their negative health impact. Some studies suggest the ...
    • Automated Structure Detection for Distributed Process Optimization 

      del Rio-Chanona, Ehecatl Antonio; Fiorelli, Fabio; Vassiliadis, Vassilios S. (Elsevier, 2016-03-23)
      The design and control of large-scale engineering systems, consisting of a number of interacting subsystems, is a heavily researched topic with relevance both for industry and academia. This paper presents two methodologies ...
    • Automatic analysis and validation of open polymer data 

      England, Nicholas William (2011-03-15)
      A system to automatically extract, analyse, validate and model polymer data has been produced. This system is called the Polymer Informatics Knowledge System (PIKS). Methods of storing polymer data electronically are ...
    • 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 ...

      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 ...
