Exploring Discriminative Features For Anomaly Detection In Public Spaces, Shriguru Nayak, Archan Misra, Kasthuri Jeyarajah, Philips Kokoh Prasetyo, Ee-Peng Lim

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Context data, collected either from mobile devices or from user-generated social media content, can help identify abnormal behavioural patterns in public spaces (e.g., shopping malls, college campuses or downtown city areas). Spatiotemporal analysis of such data streams provides a compelling new approach towards automatically creating real-time urban situational awareness, especially about events that are unanticipated or that evolve very rapidly. In this work, we use real-life datasets collected via SMU's LiveLabs testbed or via SMU's Palanteer software, to explore various discriminative features (both spatial and temporal - e.g., occupancy volumes, rate of change in topic{specific tweets ...


Platform-Specific Timing Verification Framework In Model-Based Implementation, Baekgyu Kim, Lu Feng, Linh T. X. Phan, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee Mar 2015

Platform-Specific Timing Verification Framework In Model-Based Implementation, Baekgyu Kim, Lu Feng, Linh T. X. Phan, Oleg Sokolsky, Insup Lee

Departmental Papers (CIS)

In the model-based implementation methodology, the timed behavior of the software is typically modeled independently of the platform-specific timing semantics such as the delay due to scheduling or I/O handling. Although this approach helps to reduce the complexity of the model, it leads to timing gaps between the model and its implementation. This paper proposes a platform-specific timing verification framework that can be used to formally verify the timed behavior of an implementation that has been developed from a platform-independent model. We first describe a way to categorize the interactions among the software, a platform, and the environment in ...

Graduate Curricula In Software Engineering And Software Assurance: Need And Recommendations, T. B. Hilburn, Andrew J. Kornecki

Andrew J. Kornecki

In discussions about the development and use of computer systems and software products, the term “professional software engineer” is used repeatedly. In the last two decades there has been significant effort devoted to enhancing and advancing the state of professional software engineering (SwE) – new software engineering processes, methods, tools, and practices; creation of a software engineering body of knowledge [1]; development of a code of ethics and professional conduct [2], and software certification and licensing programs [3] . In 1989 the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of Carnegie Mellon University published a landmark report on graduate education in software engineering [4]. The ...

Consumer technology adoption into large enterprise environments is occurring at an unprecedented rate. Employees require the flexibility and efficiency of using operating systems, computers, and mobility products they are familiar with and that enable their productivity. Due to this industry phenomenon, one large shipping enterprise must work to create solutions to integrate Apple’s OS X operating system into its traditional Windows-based operating environment. This level of integration must take place carefully to enable usability and foster the continued data security of enterprise assets. This paper describes the steps and methodology taken, as well as the rationale used, to accomplish ...


A Software Development Kit For Camera-Based Gesture Interaction, Devlin Cronin Dec 2013

A Software Development Kit For Camera-Based Gesture Interaction, Devlin Cronin

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Human-Computer Interaction is a rapidly expanding field, in which new implementations of ideas are consistently being released. In recent years, much of the concentration in this field has been on gesture-based control, either touch-based or camera-based. Even though camera-based gesture recognition was previously seen more in science fiction than in reality, this method of interaction is rising in popularity. There are a number of devices readily available to the average consumer that are designed to support this type of input, including the popular Microsoft Kinect and Leap Motion devices.

Despite this rise in availability and popularity, development for these devices ...


Is Tech M&A Value-Additive?, Ani Deshmukh Nov 2012

Is Tech M&A Value-Additive?, Ani Deshmukh

Undergraduate Economic Review

Given rising M&A deal volume across all high-tech subsectors, the ability to measure post-acquisition performance becomes critical. Despite this growth, the relevant academic literature is severely lacking (Kohers and Kohers 2000). Using an event-study approach, I find that acquirers and targets both realize statistically significant day-0 abnormal returns (1.23% [p<0.1] and 8.1% [p<0.01], respectively). As positive stock returns signal positive growth prospects in a semi-strong efficient market, AR regressions found that firms' technological relatedness, deal financing, purchase price premiums, and the relative book to market ratio, explained most variance. Overall, high-tech transactions are value-additive for both targets and acquirers.

Comparing Android Applications To Find Copying, Larry Melling, Bob Zeidman Jan 2012

Comparing Android Applications To Find Copying, Larry Melling, Bob Zeidman

Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law

The Android smartphone operating system includes a Java virtual machine that enables rapid development and deployment of a wide variety of applications. The open nature of the platform means that reverse engineering of applications is relatively easy, and many developers are concerned as applications similar to their own show up in the Android marketplace and want to know if these applications are pirated. Fortunately, the same characteristics that make an Android application easy to reverse engineer and copy also provide opportunities for Android developers to compare downloaded applications to their own. This paper describes the process for comparing a developer ...


On Co-Optimization Of Constrained Satisfiability Problems For Hardware Software Applications, Kunal Ganeshpure Sep 2011

On Co-Optimization Of Constrained Satisfiability Problems For Hardware Software Applications, Kunal Ganeshpure

Doctoral Dissertations 1896 - February 2014

Manufacturing technology has permitted an exponential growth in transistor count and density. However, making efficient use of the available transistors in the design has become exceedingly difficult. Standard design flow involves synthesis, verification, placement and routing followed by final tape out of the design. Due to the presence of various undesirable effects like capacitive crosstalk, supply noise, high temperatures, etc., verification/validation of the design has become a challenging problem. Therefore, having a good design convergence may not be possible within the target time, due to a need for a large number of design iterations.

Capacitive crosstalk is one of ...

Boise State University Theses and Dissertations

Embedded Systems can be found in devices that people use every day. In the pursuit of faster and smarter devices, more powerful processing units are needed in these embedded systems. A key component of powerful processing units is the supporting software. While the raw processing power of microcontroller has been continually advancing, the improvements in the supporting software for medium scale embedded systems have been lacking. This thesis focuses on improving the software on medium scale systems by discussing the practical application of non-blocking coding techniques. The basic concept of how non-blocking code improves the performance of a system is ...


Understanding The Evolution Of Accounting For Software: Implications For An Ifrs World, Elizabeth Figeroid Jan 2011

Understanding The Evolution Of Accounting For Software: Implications For An Ifrs World, Elizabeth Figeroid

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Software is a relatively new, fast-growing, and ever more integrated part of the US and global economy. Where 20 years ago, software was often a standalone product (e.g. Microsoft Windows), in today's world software is a key and indivisible part of thousands of products that are sold every day, like Apple's iPhone and iPad.

The accounting guidance for software revenue recognition in the United States is a relatively new and fast-growing body of literature. Each iteration of software rulemaking has become more precise, diminishing the ability of corporate managements to interpret the literature in diverse ways. For ...


An Exploration Of Formal Methods And Tools Applied To A Small Satellite Software System, Russell J. Grover May 2010

An Exploration Of Formal Methods And Tools Applied To A Small Satellite Software System, Russell J. Grover

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Formal system modeling has been a topic of interest in the research community for many years. Modeling a system helps engineers understand it better and enables them to check different aspects of it to ensure that there is no undesired or unexpected behavior and that it does what it was designed to do. This thesis takes two existing tools that were created to aid in the designing of spacecraft systems and creates a layer to connect them together and allow them to be used jointly. The first tool is a library of formal descriptions used to specify spacecraft behavior in ...

Hide It Or Unbundle It: A Comparison Of The Antitrust Investigations Against Microsoft In The U.S. And The E.U., Sue Ann Mota

The University of New Hampshire Law Review

[Excerpt] "Microsoft Corporation, the world’s largest software company, has been facing antitrust scrutiny globally. In the U.S., after what’s been called the antitrust trial of the century, a consent decree was reached between Microsoft, the United States government, and several states, that closely resembled the litigated remedy that the remaining states received. Only Massachusetts appealed the litigated remedy, which was approved by the appeals court on June 30, 2004. In the United States, Microsoft was required to hide, but not remove, the Internet Explorer browser on the Windows Operating System. While antitrust litigation was ongoing in the ...
