Down the superhighway in a single tome: understanding information browsing and how to support it online
The term browsing can refer to a number of different activities, particularly when it comes to information behaviour. It has been used to refer to web browsing; the act of moving from one information source to another ...
Brownout-oriented and energy efficient management of cloud data centers
Cloud computing paradigm supports dynamic provisioning of resources for delivering computing for applications as utility services as a pay-as-you-go basis. However, the energy consumption of cloud data centers has become ...
A framework of dynamic cybersecurity incident response to improve incident response agility
The modern enterprise uses risk-driven and control-centered security management systems to protect information resources and sustain competitive advantage. Such systems have proven to be quite effective in the prevention ...
Between cardboard and computer: the hobbyist experience of modern boardgames
Boardgames date back to at least 3500 BCE, yet little attention has been paid to the experience of playing them. Today, boardgames are increasingly popular, with increasing visibility in popular culture as well as significant ...
Highly efficient distributed hypergraph analysis: real-time partitioning and quantized learning
Hypergraphs have been shown to be highly effective when modeling a wide range of applications where high-order relationships are of interest, such as social network analysis and object classification via hypergraph embedding. ...
Autoregressive generative models and multi-task learning with convolutional neural networks
At a high level, sequence modelling problems are of the form where the model aims to predict the next element of a sequence based on neighbouring items. Common types of applications include time-series forecasting, language ...
Hybrid optimization of vehicle routing problems
Vehicle routing problems are combinatorial optimization problems that aspire to design vehicle routes that minimize some measure of cost, such as the total distance traveled or the time at which the last vehicle returns ...
The impact of multi-mappings in short read mapping
Determining the DNA sequence of an organism is an essential step in many biological studies. The high-throughput DNA sequencing technologies break the DNA molecule randomly into many small fragments and determine the ...
Machine learning with adversarial perturbations and noisy labels
Machine learning models such as traditional random forests (RFs) and modern deep neural networks (DNNs) have been successfully used to solve complex learning problems in many applications such as speech recognition, image ...
Cost-efficient resource provisioning for large-scale graph processing systems in cloud computing environments
A large amount of data that is being generated on Internet every day is in the form of graphs. Many services and applications namely as social networks, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile applications, business applications, ...
