    • Explaining Expert Search and Team Formation Systems with ExES 

      Golzadeh, Kiarash (University of Waterloo, 2024-05-06)
      Expert search and team formation systems operate on collaboration networks with nodes representing individuals, labeled with their skills, and edges denoting collaboration relationships. Given a query corresponding to a ...
    • Exploitation of Redundant Inverse Term Frequency for Answer Extraction 

      Lynam, Thomas Richard (University of Waterloo, 2002)
      An automatic question answering system must find, within a corpus,short factual answers to questions posed in natural language. The process involves analyzing the question, retrieving information related to the question, ...
    • Exploiting Structure in Backtracking Algorithms for Propositional and Probabilistic Reasoning 

      Li, Wei (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-03)
      Boolean propositional satisfiability (SAT) and probabilistic reasoning represent two core problems in AI. Backtracking based algorithms have been applied in both problems. In this thesis, I investigate structure-based ...
    • Exploiting the Computational Power of Ternary Content Addressable Memory 

      Tirdad, Kamran (University of Waterloo, 2011-09-30)
      Ternary Content Addressable Memory or in short TCAM is a special type of memory that can execute a certain set of operations in parallel on all of its words. Because of power consumption and relatively small storage ...
    • Exploiting Token and Path-based Representations of Code for Identifying Security-Relevant Commits 

      Keshav Ram, Achyudh Ram (University of Waterloo, 2020-07-15)
      Public vulnerability databases such as CVE and NVD account for only 60% of security vulnerabilities present in open-source projects and are known to suffer from inconsistent quality. Over the last two years, there has been ...
    • Explore the In-context Learning Capability of Large Language Models 

      Li, Tianle (University of Waterloo, 2024-05-10)
      The rapid evolution of Large Language Models (LLMs) has marked the beginning of a new age in AI capabilities, particularly in the domain of natural language understanding and processing. Among the forefront of these ...
    • Exploring Automatic Citation Classification 

      Radoulov, Radoslav (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-21)
      Currently, citation indexes used by digital libraries are very limited. They only provide raw citation counts and link scientific articles through their citations. There are more than one type of citations, but citation ...
    • Exploring New Forms of Random Projections for Prediction and Dimensionality Reduction in Big-Data Regimes 

      Karimi, Amir-Hossein (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-01)
      The story of this work is dimensionality reduction. Dimensionality reduction is a method that takes as input a point-set P of n points in R^d where d is typically large and attempts to find a lower-dimensional representation ...
    • Exploring the Potential of Wrist-Worn Gesture Sensing 

      Liu, Qi Feng (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-22)
      This thesis aims to explore the potential of wrist-worn gesture sensing. There has been a large amount of work on gesture recognition in the past utilizing different kinds of sensors. However, gesture sets tested across ...
    • Extended Nonlocal Games 

      Russo, Vincent (University of Waterloo, 2017-03-31)
      The notions of entanglement and nonlocality are among the most striking ingredients found in quantum information theory. One tool to better understand these notions is the model of nonlocal games; a mathematical framework ...
    • Extracting and Cleaning RDF Data 

      Farid, Mina (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-28)
      The RDF data model has become a prevalent format to represent heterogeneous data because of its versatility. The capability of dismantling information from its native formats and representing it in triple format offers a ...
    • Extracting Counterexamples from Transitive-Closure-Based Model Checking 

      Kember, Mitchell; Tran, Lynn; Gao, George; Day, Nancy (IEEE, 2019)
      We address the problem of how to extract counterexamples for the transitive-closure-based model checking (TCMC) technique. TCMC is a representation of the CTLFC (CTL with fairness constraints) model checking problem in ...
