A Geospatial Narrative Framework: Breathing New Data Into Historical Manuscripts, George V. Landon, William J. Landon, Christian L. Snodgrass

Engineering and Computer Science Faculty Publications

This project has developed a novel framework for online multimedia editions of geospatial narratives with specific support for translated texts. The framework user interface presents textually and geospatially synchronized multilingual manuscripts with audio-narration augmented by maps and images all linked with geo-tagging metadata. The initial test-bed for this framework is built upon the recently completed Italian critical edition and the first English translation of Lorenzo di Filippo Strozzi’s Pistola fatta per la peste, a 1522 walking tour of Renaissance Florence during a plague outbreak.


A New Class Of Attacks On Time Series Data Mining, Ye Zhu, Yongjian Fu, Huirong Fu 2010 Cleveland State University

A New Class Of Attacks On Time Series Data Mining, Ye Zhu, Yongjian Fu, Huirong Fu

Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Faculty Publications

Traditional research on preserving privacy in data mining focuses on time-invariant privacy issues. With the emergence of time series data mining, traditional snapshot-based privacy issues need to be extended to be multi-dimensional with the addition of time dimension. We find current techniques to preserve privacy in data mining are not effective in preserving time-domain privacy. We present the data flow separation attack on privacy in time series data mining, which is based on blind source separation techniques from statistical signal processing. Our experiments with real data show that this attack is effective. By combining the data flow separation method and ...


The Manifestation Of Stopping Sets And Absorbing Sets As Deviations On The Computation Trees Of Ldpc Codes, Eric T. Psota, Lance C. Perez 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Manifestation Of Stopping Sets And Absorbing Sets As Deviations On The Computation Trees Of Ldpc Codes, Eric T. Psota, Lance C. Perez

Faculty Publications from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The error mechanisms of iterative message-passing decoders for low-density parity-check codes are studied. A tutorial review is given of the various graphical structures, including trapping sets, stopping sets, and absorbing sets that are frequently used to characterize the errors observed in simulations of iterative decoding of low-density parity-check codes. The connections between trapping sets and deviations on computation trees are explored in depth using the notion of problematic trapping sets in order to bridge the experimental and analytic approaches to these error mechanisms. A new iterative algorithm for finding low-weight problematic trapping sets is presented and shown to be capable ...


Mimo Self-Encoded Spread Spectrum With Iterative Detection Over Rayleigh Fading Channels, Shichuan Ma, Lim Nguyen, Won Mee Jang, Yaoqing (Lamar) Yang 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Mimo Self-Encoded Spread Spectrum With Iterative Detection Over Rayleigh Fading Channels, Shichuan Ma, Lim Nguyen, Won Mee Jang, Yaoqing (Lamar) Yang

Faculty Publications from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Self-encoded spread spectrum (SESS) is a novel communication technique that derives its spreading code from the randomness of the source stream rather than using conventional pseudorandom noise (PN) code. In this paper, we propose to incorporate SESS in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems as a means to combat against fading effects in wireless channels. Orthogonal space-time block-coded MIMO technique is employed to achieve spatial diversity, and the inherent temporal diversity in SESS modulation is exploited with iterative detection. Simulation results demonstrate that MIMO-SESS can effectively mitigate the channel fading effect such that the system can achieve a bit error rate of ...

Task Analysis, Modeling, And Automatic Identification Of Elemental Tasks In Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery, Lavie Pinchas Golenberg

Wayne State University Dissertations

Robotic microsurgery provides many advantages for surgical operations, including tremor filtration, an increase in dexterity, and smaller incisions. There is a growing need for a task analyses on robotic laparoscopic operations to understand better the tasks involved in robotic microsurgery cases. A few research groups have conducted task observations to help systems automatically identify surgeon skill based on task execution. Their gesture analyses, however, lacked depth and their class libraries were composed of ambiguous groupings of gestures that did not share contextual similarities.

A Hierarchical Task Analysis was performed on a four-throw suturing task using a robotic microsurgical platform. Three ...


Unified Role Assignment Framework For Wireless Sensor Networks, Manish Mahendra Kumar Kochhal 2010 Wayne State University

Unified Role Assignment Framework For Wireless Sensor Networks, Manish Mahendra Kumar Kochhal

Wayne State University Dissertations

Wireless sensor networks are made possible by the continuing improvements in embedded sensor, VLSI, and wireless radio technologies. Currently, one of the important challenges in sensor networks is the design of a systematic network management framework that allows localized and collaborative resource control uniformly across all application services such as sensing, monitoring, tracking, data aggregation, and routing.

The research in wireless sensor networks is currently oriented toward a cross-layer network abstraction that supports appropriate fine or course grained resource controls for energy efficiency. In that regard, we have designed a unified role-based service paradigm for wireless sensor networks. We pursue ...

Internet traffic often exhibits a structure with rich high-order statistical properties like selfsimilarity

and long-range dependency (LRD). This greatly complicates the problem of

server performance modeling and optimization. On the other hand, popularity of Internet

has created numerous client-server or peer-to-peer applications, with most of them,

such as online payment, purchasing, trading, searching, publishing and media streaming,

being timing sensitive and/or financially critical. The scheduling policy in Internet ...

Split And Merge Functions For Supporting Multiple Processing Pipelines In Mercury Blastn, Jwalant Ahir, Jeremy Buhler, Roger D. Chamberlain

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Biosequence similarity search is an important application in computational biology. Mercury BLASTN, an FPGA-based implementation of BLAST for DNA, is one of the alternatives for fast DNA sequence comparison. The re-design of BLAST into a streaming application combined with a high-throughput hardware pipeline have enabled Mercury BLAST to emerge as one of the fastest implementations of bio-sequence similarity search. This performance can be further enhanced by exploiting the data-level parallelism present within the application. Here we present a multiple FPGA-based Mercury BLASTN design in order to double the speed and throughput of DNA sequence computation. This paper describes a dual ...


A Scalable Method For Solving High-Dimensional Continuous Pomdps Using Local Approximation, Tom Erez, William D. Smart 2010 Washington University in St Louis

A Scalable Method For Solving High-Dimensional Continuous Pomdps Using Local Approximation, Tom Erez, William D. Smart

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Partially-Observable Markov Decision Processes (POMDPs) are typically solved by finding an approximate global solution to a corresponding belief-MDP. In this paper, we offer a new planning algorithm for POMDPs with continuous state, action and observation spaces. Since such domains have an inherent notion of locality, we can find an approximate solution using local optimization methods. We parameterize the belief distribution as a Gaussian mixture, and use the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to approximate the belief update. Since the EKF is a first-order filter, we can marginalize over the observations analytically. By using feedback control and state estimation during policy execution ...


End-To-End Delay Analysis For Fixed Priority Scheduling In Wirelesshart Networks, Abusayeed Saifullah, You Xu, Chenyang Lu, Yixin Chen 2010 Washington University in St Louis

End-To-End Delay Analysis For Fixed Priority Scheduling In Wirelesshart Networks, Abusayeed Saifullah, You Xu, Chenyang Lu, Yixin Chen

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

The WirelessHART standard has been specifically designed for real-time communication between sensor and actuator devices for industrial process monitoring and control. End-to-end communication delay analysis for WirelessHART networks is required for acceptance test of real-time data flows from sensors to actuators and for workload adjustment in response to network dynamics. In this paper, we map the scheduling of real-time periodic data flows in a WirelessHART network to real-time multiprocessor scheduling. We, then, exploit the response time analysis for multiprocessor scheduling and propose a novel method for the end-to-end delay analysis of the real-time flows that are scheduled using a fixed ...

The Design And Implementation Of Mcflow: A Real-Time Multi-Core Aware Middleware For Dependent Task Graphs, Huang-Ming Huang, Christopher Gill, Chenyang Lu

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Modern computer architectures have evolved from uni-processor platforms to multi-processor and multi-core plat- forms, but traditional real-time distributed middleware such as RT-CORBA has not kept pace with that evolution. To address those issues, this paper describes the design and implementation of MCFlow, a new real-time distributed middleware for dependent task graphs running on multi-core platforms. MCFlow provides the following contributions to the state of the art in real-time middleware: (1) it provides an efficient C++ based component model through which computations can be configured flexibly for execution within a single core, across cores of a common host, or spanning multiple ...


Optimal Design-Space Exploration Of Streaming Applications, Shobana Padmanabhan, Yixin Chen, Roger D. Chamberlain 2010 Washington University in St Louis

Optimal Design-Space Exploration Of Streaming Applications, Shobana Padmanabhan, Yixin Chen, Roger D. Chamberlain

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Many embedded and scientific applications are frequently pipelined asynchronously and deployed on architecturally diverse systems to meet performance requirements and resource constraints. We call such pipelined applications streaming applications. Typically, there are several design parameters in the algorithms and architectures used that, when customized, impact the tradeoff between different metrics of application performance as well as resource utilization. Automatic exploration of this design space is the goal of this research. When using architecturally diverse systems to accelerate streaming applications, the design search space is often complex. We present a global optimization framework comprising a novel domain-specific variation of branch-and-bound that ...

Toward A Two-Tier Clinical Warning System For Hospitalized Patients, Gregory Hackmann, Minmin Chen, Octav Chipara, Chenyang Lu, Yixin Chen, Marin Kollef, Thomas C. Bailey

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Clinical study has found early detection and intervention to be essential for preventing clinical deterioration in patients at general hospital units. In this paper, we envision a two-tiered early warning system designed to identify the signs of clinical deterioration and provide early warning of serious clinical events. The first tier of the system automatically identifies patients at risk of clinical deterioration from existing electronic medical record databases. The second tier performs real-time clinical event detection based on real-time vital sign data collected from on-body wireless sensors attached to those high-risk patients. We employ machine-learning techniques to analyze data from both ...

An Inexpensive Robot Platform For Teleoperation And Experimentation, Daniel A. Lazewatsky, William D. Smart

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Most commercially-available robots are either aimed at the research community, or are designed with a single purpose in mind. The extensive hobbyist community has tended to focus on the hardware and the low-level software aspects. We claim that there is a need for a low-cost, general-purpose robot, accessible to the hobbyist community, with sufficient computation and sensing to run ``research-grade'' software. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of such a robot. We explicitly outline our design goals, and show how a capable robot can be assembled from off-the-shelf parts, for a modest cost, by a single person ...

Against All Probabilities: A Modeling Paradigm For Streaming Applications That Goes Against Common Notions, Rahav Dor

All Computer Science and Engineering Research

Hardware and software design requires the right portion of skills and mental faculties. The design of a good system is an exercise in rational thinking, engineering, and art. The design process is further complicated when we aspire to build systems that exploit parallelism or are targeted to be deployed on architecturally diverse computing devices, FPGAs or GPUs to name just a few. The need to develop systems that can take advantage of computing devices beyond general purpose CPUs is real. There are several application domains and research efforts that will simply not be able to adequately perform or yield answers ...
