  • Computational Mechanisms of Language Understanding and Use in the Brain and Behaviour 

    Kajic, Ivana (University of Waterloo, 2020-10-15)
    Linguistic communication is a unique characteristic of intelligent behaviour that distinguishes humans from non-human animals. Natural language is a structured, complex communication system supported by a variety of ...
  • Asymptotic Distribution of the Optimal Value in Random Linear Programs: Application to Maximum Expected Shortfall 

    Hall, Jesse (University of Waterloo, 2020-10-08)
    The properties of risk measures are of fundamental concern in quantitative finance, particularly in times of uncertainty. We study the behaviour of the asymptotic distribution of the maximum expected shortfall of a portfolio ...
  • Coherent delocalization in the light-matter interaction 

    Stritzelberger, Nadine (University of Waterloo, 2020-10-08)
    In this thesis, we study coherent delocalization in the light-matter interaction: we investigate how the coherent center of mass delocalization of a first quantized system affects its interaction with a second quantized ...
  • On the Application of Bandlimitation and Sampling Theory to Quantum Field Theory 

    Pye, Jason (University of Waterloo, 2020-10-07)
    It is widely believed that combining the uncertainty principle with gravity will lead to an effective minimum length scale. A particular challenge is to specify this scale in a coordinate-independent manner so that covariance ...
  • WiseBench: A Motion Planning Benchmarking Framework for Autonomous Vehicles 

    Ilievski, Marko (University of Waterloo, 2020-10-01)
    Rapid advances in every sphere of autonomous driving technology have intensified the need to be able to benchmark and compare different approaches. While many benchmarking tools tailored to different sub-systems of an ...
  • Cost-Efficient Contingent Claims with Choquet Pricing 

    Zhu, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-30)
    We examine a problem, in which an investor seeks the cheapest contingent claim that achieves a minimum performance subject to a maximum allowed risk exposure. Specifically, our problem minimizes a non-linear cost functional, ...
  • Peptide Sequencing with Deep Learning 

    Qiao, Rui (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-30)
    In shotgun proteomics, de novo peptide sequencing from tandem mass spectrometry data is the key technology for finding new peptide or protein sequences. It has successful applications in assembling monoclonal antibody ...
  • Toward an Interoperable and Centralized Consent Centric Access Control Model for Healthcare Resources: Model and Implementation 

    Mousaid, Hassan (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-29)
    Although patients have the legal right in Canada and many other countries to specify how, when and by whom their medical records can be accessed, the harsh reality is that in almost all cases using existing systems and ...
  • Affective and Human-Like Virtual Agents 

    Budnarain, Bhavendra (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-29)
    In Artificial Intelligence (AI) one of the technological goals is to build intelligent systems that not only perform human level tasks efficiently, but can also simulate and exhibit human-like behaviour. As the emphasis ...
  • Performance Evaluation of WiFi Backscatter Systems 

    Dehbashi, Farzan (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-29)
    WiFi backscatter communication has been proposed to enable battery-free sensors to transmit data using WiFi networks. The main advantage of WiFi backscatter technologies over RFID is that data from their tags can be read ...
  • Area-Efficient Drawings of Outer-1-Planar Graphs 

    Bulatovic, Pavle (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-29)
    We study area-efficient drawings of planar graphs: embeddings of graphs on an integer grid so that the bounding box of the drawing is minimized. Our focus is on the class of outer-1-planar graphs: the family of planar ...
  • Matrix-Variate Regression with Measurement Error 

    Fang, Junhan (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
    Matrix-variate regression models are useful for featuring data with a matrix structure, such as brain imaging data. However, those methods do not apply to data with measurement error or misclassification. While mismeasurement ...
  • React++: A Lightweight Actor Framework in C++ 

    Khan, Md Navid Alvee (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
    Distributed software remains susceptible to data races and poor scalability because of the widespread use of locks and other low-level synchronization primitives. Furthermore, using this programming approach is known to ...
  • Implementation of Kalman Filtering for Differential-Algebraic Equations 

    Sherbak, Bogdan (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
    This thesis describes two Kalman filters which are usable on semi-explicit index-1 differential-algebraic equations, prior to which a discussion of linear and nonlinear Kalman filters is presented. Performance between ...
  • Sentiment Lexicon Induction and Interpretable Multiple-instance Learning in Financial Markets 

    Fu, Chengyao (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
    Sentiment analysis has been widely used in the domain of finance. There are two most common textual sentiment analysis methods in finance: \textit{dictionary-based approach} and \textit{machine learning approach}. The ...
  • Systems for Graph Extraction from Tabular Data 

    Anzum, Nafisa (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
    Connections amongst real-world entities provide significant insights for numerous real-life applications in social networks, semantic web, road maps, finance, among others. Graphs are perhaps the most natural way to model ...
  • Challenges in epidemiological modelling: from socio-virulence dynamics to HIV interventions in MSM populations. 

    Pharaon, Joe (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-28)
    The spread of infectious diseases is one of the biggest challenges that public health faces nowadays. Their control is often not an easy task. Social behaviour plays an important role in disease prevention. However, the ...
  • Inference Methods for Noisy Correlated Responses with Measurement Error 

    Zhang, Qihuang (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-25)
    Studying complex relationships between correlated responses and the associated covariates has attracted much research interest. Numerous approaches have been developed to model correlated responses. However, most available ...
  • Quantum fields and machine learning 

    Melgarejo Lermas, Irene (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-25)
    In this thesis, we use detector models to study various properties of quantum fields. One such property is the correlations present in fields. It is known that two uncorrelated detectors, upon coupling to a quantum field, ...
  • Statistical Analysis with Non-probability Survey Samples 

    Chen, Yilin (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-25)
    The goal of this thesis is to develop inferential procedures with non-probability survey samples. In recent years, the use of non-probability survey samples has become one of the most important topics in the area. Contrast ...
