  • A Bayesian approach to norm identification

    Cranefield, Stephen; Meneguzzi, Felipe; Oren, Nir; Savarimuthu, Bastin Tony Roy (2015)

    Report
    University of Otago

    When entering a system, an agent should be aware of the obligations and prohibitions (collectively norms) that will affect it. Existing solutions to this norm identification problem make use of observations of either other's norm compliant, or norm violating, behaviour. However, they assume an extreme situation where norms are typically violated, or complied with. In this paper we propose a Bayesian approach to norm identification which operates by learning from both norm compliant and norm violating behaviour. By utilising both types of behaviour, we not only overcome a major limitation of existing approaches, but also obtain improved performance over the state-of-the-art, allowing norms to be learned with a few observations. We evaluate the effectiveness of this approach empirically and discuss theoretical limitations to its accuracy.

  • University of Otago Open Access Publishing Survey Results (including Maori ethnicity results)

    White, Richard; Remy, Melanie (2017-05-24)

    Report
    University of Otago

    Abstract: Researchers at the University of Otago are ambivalent about Open Access: in principle they strongly support open access to research literature but their behaviours are driven by the practicalities of cost and publication venue. This document reports the results of a survey carried out in 2015 of University of Otago researchers as to their attitudes towards and behaviours in relation to open access publishing. This version of the report includes a sub-analysis of respondents who selected Maori ethnicity. The original version of the report without this sub-analysis is available via OUR Archive at http://hdl.handle.net/10523/6947 The project page for more information, such as the questions used and the anonymised raw data, is available at https://figshare.com/projects/University_of_Otago_Open_Access_Publishing_Survey_2015-16/17216

  • The Te Hoe Shore Whaling Station Artefact Assemblage

    Harris, Jaden; Smith, Ian (2005-11)

    Report
    University of Otago

    This report presents an analysis of the Te Hoe Shore Whaling Station artefact assemblage, exclusive of faunal remains, wood and charcoal. The Te Hoe site, located on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand, was excavated in January/February 2005 as part of a larger project investigating early European communities in New Zealand. Shore whaling was a prominent extractive industry in New Zealand in the 1830s and 1840s and in many areas whalers were the first European settlers to arrive in this country. The primary aim in documenting their material culture is to get a more detailed picture of how whalers adapted to life in New Zealand, and to understand what influences if any they had on the subsequent development of European settlement. To this end the present paper attempts to give detailed descriptive analysis of the artefacts and place them within both a spatial and temporal context.

  • Artefacts from the Oashore Shore Whaling Station

    Harris, Jaden; Smith, Ian (2005-11)

    Report
    University of Otago

    This report presents an analysis of the artefactual assemblage from the Oashore whaling station and is largely a revision of a work originally submitted as a Masters Thesis (Harris 2005). Shore whaling was a brutally efficient industry for a short period in the 1830s and 1840s and represents some of the earliest European settlement in New Zealand. The excavation of the Oashore whaling station, located on Banks Peninsula, South Island of New Zealand, in January/February 2004 represents the first part of a major research orientated project on shore whaling in New Zealand. The present paper aims to document the range of material culture available to the Oashore whalers to help shed some light on what life was like for a shore whaler and to investigate how these communities compare or contrast with other contemporaneous European sites. To this end the Oashore artefactual material, exclusive of faunal remains and charcoal or wood, has been described, quantified, and dated where possible.

  • Marketing education: recommendations for targeting Asian students - Report 3

    Fam, Kim-Shyan; Simpson, Lisa (2001)

    Report
    University of Otago

    As shown in Report 2 of this series, the Asian market is proving to be an increasingly attractive area of opportunity for New Zealand tertiary educational institutions. Where Report 2 aimed to identify how New Zealand tertiary institutions could better target this lucrative market, this report aims to provide some distinct recommendations for tertiary educational services marketers attempting to enter the three countries used in the study. These recommendations are in terms of promotional message, promotional tools and media and key marketing strategies that are most effective in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
