      Advanced engineering and information technology combined with medical and clinical knowledge enable evolutionary solutions for remote, wireless and continuous monitoring of vital signs. Such approach facilitates implementation ...
    • What is a mode? Smell, olfactory perception, and the notion of mode in multimodal mediated theory

      Norris, S (Multimodal Research Centre, School of Communication Studies, AUT University, 2013)
      Moving towards multimodal mediated theory, I propose to define a mode as a system of mediated action that comes about through concrete lower-level actions that social actors take in the world. In order to explain exactly ...
    • What is the new paradigm in product quality?

      Robotham, A; Guldbrandsen, M (Department of Control and Engineering Design, Technical University of Denmark, 2000)
      The current product quality paradigm is founded upon a customer-focused product development process, in which the functionality and behaviour of a product are designed to fulfil the needs of customers, and technological ...

    • What's in a Programme?

      Cusack, B; Petrova, K (Computing and Information Technology Research and Education New Zealand (CITRENZ), 2011)
      Teaching and research in information technology (IT) is always a reflection of the ever changing landscape of change and continuous innovation. IT programmes also show how content evolves over time, and the emphasis shifts. ...
    • When is a Volettera space Baire?

      Cao, J; Junnila, HJK (University of Patras, 2006)
      In this talk, we study the problem when a Volterra space is Baire. It is shown that every stratifiable Volterra space is Baire. This answers affirmatively a question of Gruenhage and Lutzer in 2000. Further, it is established ...
    • Who cares? Creative research practice in the space of the university

      O'Connor, MT (College of Creative Arts, Massey University, 2011)
