  • Bayesian unsupervised learning with multiple data types 

    Agius, Phaedra; Ying, Yiming; Campbell, Colin (Walter de Gruyter, 2009)
    We propose Bayesian generative models for unsupervised learning with two types of data and an assumed dependency of one type of data on the other. We consider two algorithmic ap- proaches, based on a correspondence model ...

  • Benchmarking energy consumption and CO2 emissions from rainwater harvesting systems: an improved method by proxy 

    Ward, Sarah; Butler, David; Memon, Fayyaz (IWA (International Water Association), 2010)
    Life cycle analyses (LCAs) show the main operational energy contribution for rainwater-harvesting (RWH) systems come from ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and pumping rainwater from tank to building. Simple methods of estimating ...

    We present the results of a numerical benchmark study for the MUlti-dimensional Stellar Implicit Code (MUSIC) based on widely applicable two- and three-dimensional compressible hydrodynamics problems relevant to stellar ...
  • The Benefits of Laser Scanning & 3D Modelling in Accident Investigation: In a Mining Context 

    Foster, P.J.; Jobling-Purser, J; Coggan, John; Eyre, Matthew (Maney on behalf of the Institute and The AusIMM, 2015-06-16)
    Accurate reconstruction of the facts and causes surrounding accidents is critical if the mining industry is to learn from incidents and prevent future events. Effective accident investigation and training are essential ...

    This report is a deliverable of MERiFIC Work Package 3.6: ‘Operation and Maintenance requirements’ and has been produced as a cross border collaboration between IFREMER and the University of Exeter. The report provides ...
  • Best practices for post-processing ensemble climate forecasts, part I: selecting appropriate recalibration methods 

    Sansom, PG; Ferro, CAT; Stephenson, DB; Goddard, L; Mason, SJ (American Meteorological Society, 2016)
    This study describes a systematic approach to selecting optimal statistical recalibration methods and hindcast designs for producing reliable probability forecasts on seasonal-to-decadal time scales. A new recalibration ...
  • Beyond in-phase and anti-phase coordination in a model of joint action 

    Avitabile, D; Słowiński, P; Bardy, B; Tsaneva-Atanasova, K (Springer Verlag (Germany), 2016-06-08)
    In 1985, Haken, Kelso and Bunz proposed a system of coupled nonlinear oscillators as a model of rhythmic movement patterns in human bimanual coordination. Since then, the Haken–Kelso–Bunz (HKB) model has become a modelling ...
  • Beyond von-Neumann computing with nanoscale phase-change memory devices 

    Wright, CD; Hosseini, P; Vazquez-Diosdado, JA (Wiley, 2013-05-13)
    Historically, the application of phase-change materials and devices has been limited to the provision of non-volatile memories. Recently however the potential has been demonstrated for using phase-change devices as the ...
  • A bias-corrected decomposition of the Brier score 

    Ferro, Christopher A.T.; Fricker, Thomas E. (Royal Meteorological Society, 2012)
    The Brier score is a widely used measure of performance for probabilistic forecasts of event occurrences and is often decomposed additively into three terms that quantify the reliability and resolution of the forecasts and ...
  • Biclustering models for structured microarray data 

    Turner, Heather L.; Bailey, Trevor C.; Krzanowski, Wojtek J.; Hemingway, Cheryl A. (IEEE, 2005)
