Deep learning for mobile multimedia: a survey
Ota K., Dao M., Mezaris V., De Natale F. ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications 13(3s): 1-22, 2017. Type: Article
Deep learning architectures, tools, and algorithms are, in general, not adapted to the storage and computation resources of a mobile device. Thus, one needs better hardware for mobile devices and smaller footprints for learning and inference algor...
Agile requirements handling in a service-oriented taxonomy of capabilities
Hannay J., Brathen K., Mevassvik O. Requirements Engineering 22(2): 289-314, 2017. Type: Article
Enterprises often grow through mergers and acquisitions in response to the needs created by prevalent market conditions. While mergers may strategically position an organization to meet the market needs, the organization also inherits a large port...
PSearch: a framework for semantic annotated process model search
Grigori D., Gater A. Service Oriented Computing and Applications 11(3): 249-264, 2017. Type: Article
Process model reuse is a foundational aspect of the semantic web vision. The new PSearch framework can search repositories of process flow models for process reuse matches. The authors use multi-dimensional indexes derived from semantic metadata a...
Efficient attack graph analysis through approximate inference
Muñoz-González L., Sgandurra D., Paudice A., Lupu E. ACM Transactions on Privacy and Security 20(3): 1-30, 2017. Type: Article
In the course of this very well-written and interesting research paper, the authors attempt to show how an existing technique can be employed to analyze attack graphs. In computer security, the analysis of attack graphs has been extensively used t...
High-order accurate adaptive kernel compression time-stepping schemes for fractional differential equations
Baffet D., Hesthaven J. Journal of Scientific Computing 72(3): 1169-1195, 2017. Type: Article
The numerical solution of differential equations of fractional order is a notoriously difficult and complex matter, mainly due to the nonlocality of the operators and the nonsmoothness of the exact solutions. The former leads to a very high arithm...
Architectural and operating system support for virtual memory
Bhattacharjee A., Lustig D., Morgan & Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2017. 176 pp. Type: Book (978-1-627056-02-1)
Are you a memory management unit (MMU) hardware designer, an operating system kernel programmer, or a student/researcher of modern computer architectures or operating systems? Abhishek Bhattacharjee (Rutgers University) and Daniel Lustig (NVIDIA) ...
Space-efficient parallel construction of succinct representations of suffix tree topologies
Baier U., Beller T., Ohlebusch E. Journal of Experimental Algorithmics 22(1): 1-26, 2017. Type: Article
A suffix tree is a compressed tree that represents all the suffixes of a given string. Such a data structure has wide applications in string processing, bioinformatics, and information retrieval and can be constructed with space/time complexity li...
A finite element method for high-contrast interface problems with error estimates independent of contrast
Guzmán J., Sánchez M., Sarkis M. Journal of Scientific Computing 73(1): 330-365, 2017. Type: Article
Guzmán et al. explain their method with a polygonal, convex, tubular domain, and an immersed interface definable with a function with the first derivative, which does not change in time. The jumps across a discontinuity are defined as expressions ...
Ethics, law and the politics of information: a guide to the philosophy of Luciano Floridi
Durante M., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 224 pp. Type: Book (978-9-402411-48-5)
The premise of this book is that information and communication technologies (ICT) are “altering our representation and understanding of reality and of ourselves.” A typical assertion, giving a flavor of the text: “The idea that t...
Optimization and quality estimation of circuit design via random region covering method
Bi Z., Zhou D., Wang S., Zeng X. ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems 23(1): 1-25, 2017. Type: Article
Bi et al. propose a random region covering theory to optimize designs on systems and circuits. The proposed work has been verified on a class-E power amplifier and a cascade local impedance attenuation amplifier. Both are analog circuits with a si...
