      Zhao, Jun (University of Waterloo, 2018-11-21)
      Unit testing plays an essential role in software development and maintenance, especially in Test-Driven Development. Conventional unit tests, which have no input parameters, often exercise similar scenarios with small ...
    • Automatic segmentation of skin lesions from dermatological photographs 

      Glaister, Jeffrey Luc (University of Waterloo, 2013-08-21)
      Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer if left untreated. Incidence rates of melanoma have been increasing, especially among young adults, but survival rates are high if detected early. Unfortunately, the time and ...
    • Automatic Sequences and Decidable Properties: Implementation and Applications 

      Goc, Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-19)
      In 1912 Axel Thue sparked the study of combinatorics on words when he showed that the Thue-Morse sequence contains no overlaps, that is, factors of the form ayaya. Since then many interesting properties of sequences began ...
    • Automatic Signature Matching in Component Composition 

      Hashemian, Seyyed Vahid (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-12)
      Reuse is not a new concept in software engineering. Ideas, abstractions, and processes have been reused by programmers since the very early days of software development. In the beginning, since storage media was very ...
    • Automatic Transit Schedule Updating Using AVL/APC System 

      Deng, Shengfeng (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-11)
      Observing and fixing transit vehicle’s schedule adherence problems have always been one of the main priorities of a transit agency, and different approaches have been developed over time to help reflect transit vehicle’s ...
    • Automatically Measuring Neuromuscular Jitter 

      Wang, Xin (University of Waterloo, 2005)
      The analysis of electromyographic (EMG) signals detected during muscle contraction provides important information to aid in the diagnosis and characterization of neuromuscular disorders. One important analysis measures ...
    • Automatically Tuning Database Server Multiprogramming Level 

      Abouzour, Mohammed (University of Waterloo, 2007-09-06)
      Optimizing database systems to achieve the maximum attainable throughput of the underlying hardware is one of the many difficult tasks that face Database Administrators. With the increased use of database systems in many ...
    • Automaticity Revisited: When Print Doesn't Activate Semantics 

      Labuschagne, Elsa (University of Waterloo, 2014-10-16)
      It is widely accepted that the presentation of a printed word “automatically” triggers processing that ends with full semantic activation. This processing, among other characteristics, is held to occur without intention, ...
    • Automating and Optimizing a Transportation Mode Classification Model for use on Smartphone Data 

      Nour, Akram (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-01)
      As transportation engineering and planning evolve from “data poor” to “data rich” practices, methods to automate the collection and translation of data to information become increasingly important. Advances in wireless ...
    • Automating Programming Assignment Marking with AST Analysis 

      Li, Sichuang (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-14)
      This thesis presents a novel approach to automatically mark programming assignments. We hypothesize that correct student solution ASTs will be more similar to reference solution ASTs than incorrect student solutions and ...
    • Automating Radiotherapy: Parameterizations of Sensor Time Delay Compensators and the Separation Principle 

      Kwok, Wilfred (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Motivated by recent research to automate radiotherapy, this thesis looks into feedback control problems where the feedback sensor imposes considerable time delay. The use of an asymptotic estimator is considered as a ...
    • Automating Water Capital Activities Using Naïve Bayes Classifier with Supervised Learning Algorithm 

      mirtorabi, ramona (University of Waterloo, 2021-08-09)
