This memo provides an analysis of the convolutional resampling algorithm used in radio-astronomy imaging with respect to the imaging pipelines of the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). Due to the large data rate (∼ 2.5GB/s), imaging an ASKAP scale data-set requires significant processing capability. In order to produce some capacity… (More)
The emerging field of morphological computation seeks to understand how mechanical complexity in living systems can be advantageous, for instance by reducing the cost of control. In this paper we explore the phenomenon of morphological computation in tensegrities – unique structures with a high strength to weight ratio, resilience, and an ability to change… (More)

The semantic web was proposed in 1994 by the inventor of the original world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-lee. He outlined a web of information that provided meaning and structure to information in a way that the existing web did not. This meaning, or semantics would allow for the automation of a greater number of tasks, such as a hospital booking that involves… (More)
Transformation-based error-driven learning and natural language processing: A case study in part of speech tagging.
The web consists of huge amounts of data available in a variety of digital forms stored in thousands of repositories. Approaches that use the semantics of information captured in the metadata extracted from the data are being viewed as an appealing approach, especially in the context of the Semantic Web effort. We present in this chapter a discussion on… (More)
