The Practicality Of Cloud Computing, Xiaohua (Cindy) Li
Since its inception, cloud computing has become the current paradigm. Organizations of different size and type have embraced the concept because of its both technological and economic advantages. Sacred Heart University Library has recently published its newly designed website on the cloud. For a small academic library, what does it mean to put their online data on the cloud? This paper will analyze and discuss the advantages of cloud computing, and some potential obstacles created by it through the author’s observations. This paper hopes the uniqueness of the case will contribute to the improvement of cloud computing experience of ...
Resource Estimation For Large Scale, Real-Time Image Analysis On Live Video Cameras Worldwide, 2017 Purdue University
Resource Estimation For Large Scale, Real-Time Image Analysis On Live Video Cameras Worldwide, Caleb Tung, Yung-Hsiang Lu, Anup Mohan
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium
Thousands of public cameras live-stream an abundance of data to the Internet every day. If analyzed in real-time by computer programs, these cameras could provide unprecedented utility as a global sensory tool. For example, if cameras capture the scene of a fire, a system running image analysis software on their footage in real-time could be programmed to react appropriately (perhaps call firefighters). No such technology has been deployed at large scale because the sheer computing resources needed have yet to be determined. In order to help us build computer systems powerful enough to achieve such lifesaving feats, we developed a ...
One-To-Cloud One-Time Pad Data Encryption: Introducing Virtual Prototyping With Pspice, 2017 Dublin Institute of Technology
One-To-Cloud One-Time Pad Data Encryption: Introducing Virtual Prototyping With Pspice, Paul Tobin, Lee Tobin, Roberto Gandia Blanquer Dr, Michael Mckeever, Jonathan Blackledge Professor
In this paper, we examine the design and application of a one-time pad encryption system for protecting data stored in the Cloud. Personalising security using a one-time pad generator at the client-end protects data from break-ins, side-channel attacks and backdoors in public encryption algorithms. The one-time pad binary sequences were obtained from modified analogue chaos oscillators initiated by noise and encoded client data locally. Specific ``one-to-Cloud'' storage applications returned control back to the end user but without the key distribution problem normally associated with one-time pad encryption. Development of the prototype was aided by ``Virtual Prototyping'' in the latest version ...
Sap: Improving Continuous Top-K Queries Over Streaming Data, 2017 Singapore Management University
Sap: Improving Continuous Top-K Queries Over Streaming Data, Rui Zhu, Bin Wang, Xiaochun Yang, Baihua Zheng, Guoren Wang
Research Collection School Of Information Systems
Continuous top-k query over streaming data is a fundamental problem in database. In this paper, we focus on the sliding window scenario, where a continuous top-k query returns the top-k objects within each query window on the data stream. Existing algorithms support this type of queries via incrementally maintaining a subset of objects in the window and try to retrieve the answer from this subset as much as possible whenever the window slides. However, since all the existing algorithms are sensitive to query parameters and data distribution, they all suffer from expensive incremental maintenance cost. In this paper, we propose ...
Smartgarden, 2017 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Smartgarden, Samuel S. Lees, Matthew T. Lindly
The problem that the SmartGarden project seeks to solve is the challenge of watering succulents correctly and maintaining consistent plant health. Too much water can cause root rot and drowning while too little water can cause dehydration and starvation.
The SmartGarden solves this common problem by configuring a Raspberry Pi to measure soil moisture, store the data to an AWS server in the cloud, and water the succulent when necessary, informing the user by providing both a web-interface and a variety of notifications.

This presentation overviews online research data repositories and implementation strategies for university and college campus libraries. The presentation pragmatically surveys this newer technology landscape and how organizations can begin to think about and implement an online data research repository. This session will survey the landscape but also makes use of practical example from Texas State University and ...
A Data-Driven Approach For Benchmarking Energy Efficiency Of Warehouse Buildings, 2017 Singapore Management University
A Data-Driven Approach For Benchmarking Energy Efficiency Of Warehouse Buildings, Wee Leong Lee, Kar Way Tan, Zui Young Lim
Research Collection School Of Information Systems
This study proposes adata-driven approach for benchmarking energy efficiency of warehouse buildings.Our proposed approach provides an alternative to the limitation of existingbenchmarking approaches where a theoretical energy-efficient warehouse was usedas a reference. Our approach starts by defining the questions needed to capturethe characteristics of warehouses relating to energy consumption. Using an existingdata set of warehouse building containing various attributes, we first cluster theminto groups by their characteristics. The warehouses characteristics derivedfrom the cluster assignments along with their past annual energy consumptionare subsequently used to train a decision tree model. The decision tree providesa classification of what factors contribute to ...

The Olivet Nazarene University SAE Baja team designs a custom off-road vehicle every year to compete against teams from other schools at competitions throughout the year. The current car that the Baja team is working on needs some improvements, but they need some help gathering data to see where to make these improvements. In previous years, the Baja team would not have any feedback besides what they observed while driving, so this year they have tasked the SAE Baja Data Acquisition design group with the project of creating a sensor system and a data logging program to gather information that ...
Efficient Motif Discovery In Spatial Trajectories Using Discrete Fréchet Distance, 2017 Singapore Management University
Efficient Motif Discovery In Spatial Trajectories Using Discrete Fréchet Distance, Bo Tang, Man Lung Yiu, Kyriakos Mouratidis, Kai Wang
Research Collection School Of Information Systems
The discrete Fréchet distance (DFD) captures perceptual and geographicalsimilarity between discrete trajectories. It has been successfullyadopted in a multitude of applications, such as signatureand handwriting recognition, computer graphics, as well as geographicapplications. Spatial applications, e.g., sports analysis,traffic analysis, etc. require discovering the pair of most similarsubtrajectories, be them parts of the same or of different input trajectories.The identified pair of subtrajectories is called a motif.The adoption of DFD as the similarity measure in motif discovery,although semantically ideal, is hindered by the high computationalcomplexity of DFD calculation. In this paper, we propose asuite of novel lower ...

Integrated Assessment Of Novel Two-Season Production Systems In Mato Grosso, Brazil, 2017 Universität Hohenheim
Integrated Assessment Of Novel Two-Season Production Systems In Mato Grosso, Brazil, Marcelo Moraes, Affonso Libera, Evgeny Latynskiy, Anna Hampf, José Maria Silveira, Thomas Berger
One of the most significant advantages of growing crops in Mato Grosso (in mid-western Brazil) is that farmers can grow two crops (in some specific cases even three) in the same season. From an economic point of view, on the one hand, this provides a strong comparative advantage. On the other hand, this increases the number of decision variables that a decision making agent has to take into account. The agricultural production planning is complex and dynamic and it needs to consider crop rotation/succession in accordance with annual variability of climatic conditions. We developed a region-specific bio-economic micro-simulation model ...
Promoting Information Resources To Students: Using Wordpress To Maintain Library Data Sets, 2017 CUNY La Guardia Community College
Promoting Information Resources To Students: Using Wordpress To Maintain Library Data Sets, Derek Stadler
Publications and Research
Although it began as a blog tool, WordPress has grown into a complete content management system with thousands of interactive themes available. Since it uses the MySQL database management system, the open-source software suits the needs of library websites by aggregating a college library’s complete database inventory. Rather than update several HTML pages within a site when new vendors are added or a URL is changed, information from vendors can be maintained in a database table and then displayed to students, highlighting available resources and information. The presentation highlights the use of some simple WordPress plugins to manage many ...

Generating A Normalized Database Using Class Normalization, 2017 University of North Florida
Generating A Normalized Database Using Class Normalization, Daniel Sushil Sudhindaran
UNF Theses and Dissertations
Relational databases are the most popular databases used by enterprise applications to store persistent data to this day. It gives a lot of flexibility and efficiency. A process called database normalization helps make sure that the database is free from redundancies and update anomalies. In a Database-First approach to software development, the database is designed first, and then an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) tool is used to generate the programming classes (data layer) to interact with the database. Finally, the business logic code is written to interact with the data layer to persist the business data to the database. However, in ...
