  • Emerging Trends in Electricity Consumption for Consumer ICT 

    Andrae, Anders; Corcoran, Peter M. (2013)
    Since 2009, several emerging technologies have initiated broad and disruptive impact across the ICT sector: cloud computing promises efficiency of scale both in terms of capital and operational costs; high-speed wireless ...
  • Emotion Tracking for Remote Conferencing Applications using Neural Networks. 

    Paul Smith and Sam Redfern; Smith, Paul; Redfern, Sam (The 21st National Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science, 2010-08-31)
    In face-to-face work, discussion and negotiation relies strongly on non-verbal feedback, which provides important clues to negotiation states such as agreement/disagreement and understanding/confusion, as well as indicating ...
  • Empirical correlations for the compression index of Irish soft soils 

    McCabe, Bryan A.; Sheil, Brian B.; Long, Michael M.; Buggy, Fintan J.; Farrell, Eric R. (ICE Institution of Civil Engineers, 2014-09-08)
    Numerous correlations have been developed in the literature relating the compression index Cc of soft soils to simple index properties that serve as a useful reality check on oedometer test results. However, many of these ...
