• Data stream mining for predicting software build outcomes using source code metrics

      Finlay, J; Pears, R; Connor, AM (Elsevier, 2014)
      Context: Software development projects involve the use of a wide range of tools to produce a software artifact. Software repositories such as source control systems have become a focus for emergent research because they ...
    • Inertia and turbulence: television and innovation in New Zealand’s documentary production ecology

      Jackson, A (School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne, 2012)
      Internationally, documentary content has been a key area of innovation and experimentation for public broadcasters and public funding bodies as television moves beyond broadcast and into online and multiplatform environments. ...
    • Triggering core emotional responses from interactive narratives

      Kennedy, J (CoLab, Auckland University of Technology, 2011)
      Interactive narrative video games are considered capable of engendering emotional responses from players. This idea extends from the presupposition that the player has a level of control over the outcome of an interactive ...
    • Engineering design optimisation using tabu search

      Connor, AM; Clarkson, PJ; Shahpar, S; Leonard, PJ (Professional Engineering Publishing, 2000)
      This paper describes an optimisation methodology that has been specifically developed for engineering design problems. The methodology is based on a Tabu search (TS) algorithm that has been shown to find high quality ...
    • A multi-thread tabu search algorithm

      Connor, AM (MCB University Press, 1999)
      This paper describes a novel refinement to a Tabu search algorithm that has been implemented in an attempt to improve the robustness of the search when applied to particularly complex problems. In this approach, two Tabu ...
    • Efficient optimisation of structures using tabu search

      Connor, AM; Seffen, KA; Clarkson, PJ; Parks, GT (MCB University Press, 1999)
      This paper presents a novel approach to the optimisation of structures using a Tabu search (TS) method. TS is a metaheuristic which is used to guide local search methods towards a globally optimal solution by using flexible ...
    • A comparison of two methods applied to the optimisation of fluid power circuits

      Connor, AM; Tilley, DG (Research Studies Press, 1997)
      This paper describes two optimisation methods which can be applied to the parameter selection stage of Fluid Power System design. These two methods used are a Genetic Algorithm (GA) and a Tabu Search method, both of which ...
    • The synthesis of hybrid mechanisms using genetic algorithms

      Connor, AM (Mechanisms & Machines Research Group, Liverpool John Moores University, 1997)
      This thesis presents a novel design methodology for the synthesis of hybrid mechanisms using Genetic Algorithms. GAs are a search and optimisation method which model the mechanics of population genetics to give a truly ...
    • A Computational Interrogation of “Big-C” and “Little-c” Creativity

      Sosa, R; Dijck, MV
      The distinction between “Big-C” and “little-c” creativity implies that the generative process of celebrated creators is of a special type or degree. Arguments for and against such a hierarchy of creativity are found in the ...
