    • Application of the Weka Machine Learning Library to Hospital Ward Occupancy Problems 

      Harris, Ian; Denzinger, Joerg; Yergens, Dean (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2008-01-04)
      We explore the potential of applying machine learning techniques to the management of patient ow in hospitals. For this project, we have obtained the Weka machine learning library and three years of historical ...
    • Build Notifications in Agile Environments 

      Ablett, Ruth; Maurer, Frank; Sharlin, Ehud; Denzinger, Joerg; Schock, Craig (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2008-01-14)
      In an agile software development environment, developers write code that should work together to fulfill the wishes of the customer. Continuous integration (CI) ensures that code from different individuals integrates ...
    • BuildBot: A Robotic Software Development Monitor in an Agile Environment 

      Ablett, Ruth; Maurer, Frank; Sharlin, Ehud; Denzinger, Joerg (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2006-05-18)
      In this paper, we describe BuildBot, a robot developed to assist with continuous integration of a software build in Agile development teams. BuildBot can interact physically with individual members of the team and be ...
    • Creating and Evaluating Goal Ordering Structures for Testing Harbour Patrol and Interception Policies 

      Thornton, Chris; Flanagan, Tom; Denzinger, Joerg (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2010-03-24)
      In this article, we discuss a method for testing policies that guide groups of agents in simulations for interactions with other agents and the environment that reveal weaknesses of these policies. Our method is based ...
    • Design and Analysis of an Intelligent Decision Support System for Trading and its Application to Electricity Trading 

      Maurice, Sebastian Augustine (University of Calgary, Engineering, Electrical and Computer, Graduate Studies, 2013-09-23)
      The financial trading market is a highly complex and dynamic system, which is the limiting factor preventing any model from accurately predicting its movements. Because of this limiting factor, trading in a market can be ...
    • The End-to-End Use of Source Code Examples: An Exploratory Study - Appendix 

      Holmes, Reid; Cottrell, Rylan; Walker, Robert; Denzinger, Joerg (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2009-06-15)
      This appendix contains the details of our case studies outlined in our paper for the 2009 International Conference on Software Maintenance, as well as an expanded discussion section. The reader is directed to the main ...
    • Exploring Higher Dimensional Photography Using Programmable Cameras 

      Willson, Christopher (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Graduate Studies, 2013-07-10)
      Consumer-grade cameras can be programmed by technical users with an interest in photography, but currently the potential is still being investigated. We explore some of the capabilities available using programmable cameras ...
    • A Negotiation Game: Establishing Stable Privacy Policies for Aggregate Reasoning 

      Barker, Ken; Denzinger, Joerg; Karimi Adl, Rosa (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2012-10-31)
      The process of personal information collection and exchange is associated with ever-growing privacy concerns. To resolve the issue, data provider's consent on the usage of private information is sought through privacy ...
    • TEACHING MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS WITH THE HELP OF ARES: MOTIVATION AND MANUAL 

      Bergen, Melissa; Denzinger, Joerg; Kidney, Jordan (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2002-11-07)
      In the last years, multi-agent systems (MAS) have become a very active research area that has connections to many other areas, both inside and outside of Computer Science. Consequently, courses about MAS are starting ...
    • Testing Self-Organizing Emergent Systems by Learning of Event Sequences 

      Hudson, Jonathan; Denzinger, Joerg; Kasinger, Holger; Bauer, Bernhard (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2009-12-02)
      We present an approach to test self-organizing emergent systems for unwanted behavior with respect to inefficiencies in task fulfillment based on evolutionary learning of event sequences. By using the differences in ...
    • A Workflow Reference Monitor for Enforcing Purpose-Based Policies 

      Jafari, Mohammad; Denzinger, Joerg; Safavi-Naini, Reihaneh; Barker, Ken (University of Calgary, Computer Science, Science, 2013-09-25)
