A Simplified Secure Programming Platform For Internet Of Things Devices, Halim Burak Yesilyurt Jun 2018

A Simplified Secure Programming Platform For Internet Of Things Devices, Halim Burak Yesilyurt

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) revolution has introduced many useful applications that are utilized in our daily lives. Users can program these devices in order to develop their own IoT applications; however, the platforms and languages that are used during development are abounding, complicated, and time-consuming. The software solution provided in this thesis, PROVIZ+, is a secure sensor application development software suite that helps users create sophisticated and secure IoT applications with little software and hardware experience. Moreover, a simple and efficient domain-specific programming language, namely Panther language, was designed for IoT application development to unify existing programming languages ...


The Thermal-Constrained Real-Time Systems Design On Multi-Core Platforms -- An Analytical Approach, Shi Sha Mar 2018

The Thermal-Constrained Real-Time Systems Design On Multi-Core Platforms -- An Analytical Approach, Shi Sha

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Over the past decades, the shrinking transistor size enabled more transistors to be integrated into an IC chip, to achieve higher and higher computing performances. However, the semiconductor industry is now reaching a saturation point of Moore’s Law largely due to soaring power consumption and heat dissipation, among other factors. High chip temperature not only significantly increases packing/cooling cost, degrades system performance and reliability, but also increases the energy consumption and even damages the chip permanently. Although designing 2D and even 3D multi-core processors helps to lower the power/thermal barrier for single-core architectures by exploring the thread ...


Exploring Hidden Coherent Feature Groups And Temporal Semantics For Multimedia Big Data Analysis, Yimin Yang Aug 2015

Exploring Hidden Coherent Feature Groups And Temporal Semantics For Multimedia Big Data Analysis, Yimin Yang

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Thanks to the advanced technologies and social networks that allow the data to be widely shared among the Internet, there is an explosion of pervasive multimedia data, generating high demands of multimedia services and applications in various areas for people to easily access and manage multimedia data. Towards such demands, multimedia big data analysis has become an emerging hot topic in both industry and academia, which ranges from basic infrastructure, management, search, and mining to security, privacy, and applications. Within the scope of this dissertation, a multimedia big data analysis framework is proposed for semantic information management and retrieval with ...


A Regression Approach To Execution Time Estimation For Programs Running On Multicore Systems, Mohammad Alshamlan Mar 2014

A Regression Approach To Execution Time Estimation For Programs Running On Multicore Systems, Mohammad Alshamlan

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Execution time estimation plays an important role in computer system design. It is particularly critical in real-time system design, where to meet a deadline can be as important as to ensure the logical correctness of a program. To accurately estimate the execution time of a program can be extremely challenging, since the execution time of a program varies with inputs, the underlying computer architectures, and run-time dynamics, among other factors. The problem becomes even more challenging as computing systems moving from single core to multi-core platforms, with more hardware resources shared by multiple processing cores.

The goal of this research ...


Efficient Storage And Domain-Specific Information Discovery On Semistructured Documents, Fernando R. Farfan Nov 2009

Efficient Storage And Domain-Specific Information Discovery On Semistructured Documents, Fernando R. Farfan

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The increasing amount of available semistructured data demands efficient mechanisms to store, process, and search an enormous corpus of data to encourage its global adoption. Current techniques to store semistructured documents either map them to relational databases, or use a combination of flat files and indexes. These two approaches result in a mismatch between the tree-structure of semistructured data and the access characteristics of the underlying storage devices. Furthermore, the inefficiency of XML parsing methods has slowed down the large-scale adoption of XML into actual system implementations. The recent development of lazy parsing techniques is a major step towards improving ...
