  • Alexander, Samuel; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Global Business and Technology Association 2014 Conference, 2014)
    A method of peer tutoring was used and evaluated in an introductory programming course in Haskell. Students were paired on the basis of skill level with pairings opposite those suggested by the existing literature. This ...
  • Baghaei, Nilufar; Casey, John; Romo de Vivar, David; Harris, Grace (APCHI '12 Proceedings of the 10th Asia Pacific conference on Computer human interaction, 2012)
    Previous research has shown that children with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have unique difficulties that can make more traditional methods of teaching less effective. ...
  • Baghaei, Nilufar; Basheri, M (OzCHI '12 Proceedings of the 24th Australian Computer-Human Interaction Conference, 2012)
    Multi-touch interfaces facilitate collaborative learning and, thus, represent a promising educational technology. Their ability to synchronously accommodate multiple users is an advantage in co-located collaborative design ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa (NZCSRSC New Zealand Computer Science Research Student Conference, 2012)
    In this paper we show that a hierarchical phrase-based translation system will outperform a classical (non-hierarchical) phrase-based system in the English-to-Persian translation direction, yet for the Persian-to-English ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (8th International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology, 2012)
    In this paper we show that a hierarchical phrasebased translation system will outperform a classical (nonhierarchical) phrase-based system in the English-to-Persian translation direction, yet for the Persian-to-English ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa; Manford, Chris; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (International Conference on Computer and Communication Devices ICCCD, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks need to deliver real-time services such as video, audio and traditional data services therefore providing efficient quality of services (QoS) support is essential. In this paper we aim to address ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (NZBio Conference, Auckland, New Zealand, 2011)
    Globalization and the continued increase in international travel and commerce have made automatic speech-to-speech translation systems an attractive area of research and development. With handheld devices becoming more ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (Seventh International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology, 2011)
    This paper documents recent work carried out for PeEn-SMT, our Statistical Machine Translation system for translation between the English-Persian language pair. We give details of our previous SMT system, and present our ...
  • Igic, Aleksandar; Watson, Catherine I.; Stafford, Rebecca; Broadbent, Elizabeth; Jayawardena, Chandimal; MacDonald, Bruce (13th Australasian International Conference on Speech Science and Technology, 2010)
    In this paper we give results of an initial investigation into the perception of synthetic speech delivered through a robotic platform. The robotic speech was judged by 19 residents and 10 staff of a New Zealand retirement ...
  • Jayawardena, Chandimal; Kuo, I. H.; Unger, U; Wong, R; Watson, C I; Stafford, Rhyll; Broadbent, E; Tiwari, P; Warren, J; Sohn, J; MacDonald, B. A. (The 2010 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, 2010)
    This paper presents the first version of a mobile service robot designed for older people. Six service application modules were developed with the key objective being successful interaction between the robot and the older ...
  • Sarrafzadeh, Hossein; Aghajari, G; Shanbehzadeh, J (Proceedings of International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists, 2010)
    Text data in image present useful information for automatic annotation, indexing and structuring of images. In this paper, we propose an approach to automatically localize horizontally texts appearing in color and complex ...
  • Mohaghegh, Mahsa (NZCSRSC New Zealand Computer Science Research Student Conference, 2010)
    Statistical Machine Translation has successfully been used for translation between many language pairs contributing to its popularity in recent years. It has however not been used for the English/Persian language pair. ...
