  • Task offloading engine for heterogeneous mobile Clouds 

    Sulaiman, Dawand Jalil; Barker, Adam David (ACM, 2016-12-01) - Conference item
    The limitations in computational resources and battery power of mobile devices led to the concept of offloading compute-intensive tasks to powerful devices. We have developed a framework to offload tasks from a mobile ...
  • Persistent identification and citation of software 

    Jones, Catherine Mary; Matthews, Brian; Gent, Ian; Griffin, Tom; Tedds, Jonathan (2016) - Journal article
    Software underpins the academic research process across disciplines. To be able to understand, use/reuse and preserve data, the software code that generated, analysed or presented the data will need to be retained and ...
  • Contextual consent : ethical mining of social media for health research 

    Norval, Christopher; Henderson, Tristan (2017-01-26) - Conference item
    Social media are a rich source of insight for data mining and user centred research, but the question of consent arises when studying such data without the express knowledge of the creator. Case studies that mine social ...
  • Opportunistic visualization with iVoLVER 

    Méndez, Gonzalo Gabriel; Nacenta, Miguel A. (IEEE Computer Society, 2016-11-08) - Conference item
    Proposed as 'data analysis anywhere, anytime, from anything', Opportunistic Information Visualization (Opportu-Vis) [1] seeks to provide analytical support in scenarios where the data of interest is not explicitly available ...
  • Bottom-up vs. top-down : trade-offs in efficiency, understanding, freedom and creativity with InfoVis tools 

    Mendez, Gonzalo Gabriel; Hinrichs, Uta; Nacenta, Miguel (ACM Press - Association for Computing Machinery, 2017-05-06) - Conference item
    The emergence of tools that support fast-and-easy visualization creation by non-experts has made the benefits of InfoVis widely accessible. Key features of these tools include attribute-level operations, automated mappings, ...
