      Singhal, Tanay; Schneider, Oliver (ACM, 2021-05)
      Game designers and researchers employ a sophisticated language for producing great player experiences with concepts such as juici- ness, which refers to excessive positive feedback. However, much of their discourse excludes ...
    • The k-best paths in Hidden Markov Models. Algorithms and Applications to Transmembrane Protein Topology Recognition. 

      Golod, Daniil (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-26)
      Traditional algorithms for hidden Markov model decoding seek to maximize either the probability of a state path or the number of positions of a sequence assigned to the correct state. These algorithms provide only a ...
    • Kernel Methods in Computer-Aided Constructive Drug Design 

      Wong, William Wai Lun (University of Waterloo, 2009-05-14)
      A drug is typically a small molecule that interacts with the binding site of some target protein. Drug design involves the optimization of this interaction so that the drug effectively binds with the target protein while ...
    • Kernel- vs. User-Level Networking: A Ballad of Interrupts and How to Mitigate Them 

      Cai, Peter (University of Waterloo, 2023-07-06)
      Networking performance has become especially important in the current age with growing demands on services over the Internet. Recent advances in network controllers has exposed bottlenecks in various parts of network ...
    • KG-Pipeline: An Automated Knowledge Graph Generation Framework 

      Vezvaei, Alireza (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-16)
      Knowledge Graphs (KGs) have many applications, specifically in information retrieval and question answering. Community projects are conducted for building large-scale KGs with crowdsourcing, but building KGs with this ...
    • Kinematic Templates: Guiding Cursor Movement in End-User Drawing Tools 

      Fung, Richard Hai-Ping (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-26)
      This thesis presents kinematic templates, end-user drawing tools that influence the mouse cursor's movement within specific areas of a digital canvas. Two types of kinematic templates influence the cursor's movement: ...
    • Knowledge Graph Imputation 

      Niknamian, Mohammadali (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-27)
      Knowledge graphs are one of the most important resources of information in many applications such as question answering and social networks. These knowledge graphs however, are often far from complete as there are so many ...
    • Large Aperiodic Semigroups 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Szykuła, Marek (World Scientific Publishing, 2015-11-01)
      We search for the largest syntactic semigroups of star-free languages having n left quotients; equivalently, we look for the largest transition semigroups of aperiodic finite automata with n states. We first introduce ...
    • Large-Scale Emulation of Anonymous Communication Networks 

      Singh, Sukhbir (University of Waterloo, 2014-08-15)
      Tor is the most popular low-latency anonymous communication system for the Internet, helping people to protect their privacy online and circumvent Internet censorship. Its low- latency anonymity and distributed design ...
    • A Las Vegas Algorithm for the Ordered Majority Problem 

      Baral, Ben (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-29)
      In this thesis, we study the majority problem using ordered comparisons under the Las Vegas randomized algorithm model. The majority problem asks whether a given set of n elements, each with some colour, has a colour which ...
    • Lattice Compression of Polynomial Matrices 

      Li, Chao (University of Waterloo, 2007-05-01)
      This thesis investigates lattice compression of polynomial matrices over finite fields. For an m x n matrix, the goal of lattice compression is to find an m x (m+k) matrix, for some relatively small k, such that the ...
    • Learn Privacy-friendly Global Gaussian Processes in Federated Learning 

      Yu, Haolin (University of Waterloo, 2022-08-17)
      In the era of big data, Federated Learning (FL) has drawn great attention as it naturally operates on distributed computational resources without the need of data warehousing. Similar to Distributed Learning (DL), FL ...
    • Learn2Perturb: an End-to-end Feature Perturbation Learning to Improve Adversarial Robustness 

      Jeddi, Ahmadreza (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-19)
      Deep neural networks have been achieving state-of-the-art performance across a wide variety of applications, and due to their outstanding performance, they are being deployed in safety and security critical systems. However, ...
    • Learning Automatic Question Answering from Community Data 

      Wang, Di (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-19)
      Although traditional search engines can retrieval thousands or millions of web links related to input keywords, users still need to manually locate answers to their information needs from multiple returned documents or ...
    • Learning by Teaching: Key Challenges and Design Implications 

      Debbané, Amy Gabriela (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-17)
