  • Incremental Information Retrieval. Finding new information by registering and ignoring already seen search results 

    Johannessen, Erlend (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-05-15)
    When searching the internet today we want immediate answers. We often search for a person, or a solution to a problem, or some topic we are interested in. The result quality of this kind of search is pretty good, most of the time we get the answers we need. The results, though, seems to be minor variations on the same results. But what if the search for information is of a different nature, more ...
  • Data Analysis and Nudging for Green Transportation 

    Jemea, Lady Limunga (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-14)
    The topic of a more sustainable environment has been a core factor to governments and the public for many years.

The main problem with such approach is that no remote control ...
  • AutoMon. Automatic monitoring and problem detection for distributed systems 

    Wikstad, Magnus (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-15)
    When working with distributed systems, detecting faults can be a difficult task, as abnormalities isn't necessarily immediately evident by warnings or system crashes. This is especially true with subtle faults, such as variations in performance of a running program, it is not necessarily its own fault, but could rather be from a different source, somewhere in the cluster, using a lot of resources ...
