From Edge to Equipment: Design and Implementation of a Machine-Learning-Enabled Smart Manufacturing System 

Nguyen, Hung (2023-04-27)
In smart manufacturing, data management systems are built with a multi-layer architecture, in which the most significant layers are the edge and cloud layers. The edge layer, not surprisingly, renders support to data ...

A Gateway-Based Approach for Information Retrieval from Data-Centric Wireless Sensor Networks from IP Hosts 

Maharrey, Brandon (2010-11-11)
With applications ranging from environmental and health monitoring to military surveillance and inventory tracking, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are changing the way we collect and use data and will be a major part of ...

A Geospatial Approach to Preserving Location Privacy 

Tadakaluru, Aditya (2023-04-26)  ETD File Embargoed
Sharing true locations of users has become a basic requirement for accessing Location-based services (LBS) on a wide range of web and mobile applications. LBS require users to provide their current location for service ...

Heuristics in Distributing Data and Parity with Distributed Hash Tables 

Earp, Damon (2021-11-30)
We compare multiple methods of distributing data and error correcting code across distributed hash tables. We focus on the scaling of distributed hash tables and at which methods moved the least amount of data while ...

Implementation of a Thermal Head Room Based P-state Driver in Linux 

Kilari, Harika (2016-12-12)
Processor overloading causes excessive heat dissipation and high temperatures which may cause unreliable operation and low lifespan. To handle such risks, processors have thermal protection modules, which start functioning ...

Improve I/O performance and Energy Efficiency in Hadoop Systems 

Yang, Yixian (2012-08-27)
MapReduce is one of the most popular distributed computing platforms for the large-scale data-intensive applications. MapReduce has been applied to many areas of divide-and-conquer problems like search engines, data mining, ...

Improving Energy Efficiency and Security in Cluster Computing Systems 

Ruan, Xiaojun (2011-07-25)
Cluster computing systems are widely used in parallel and distributed computing research. Besides performance, energy cost and security should also be carefully concerned in large scale cluster computing systems to reduce ...

Improving Energy Efficiency and Security of DVFS-Enabled Clouds 

Mao, Jianzhou (2022-08-02)
Since modern data centers have been significantly scaling up in capacity in past decades, it is demanding to curtail energy consumption of virtual-machine-powered data centers. Cloud computing has radically changed the ...

Improving Programming Productivity with Statistical Models 

Nguyen, Tam (2022-04-26)
Modern applications often need to have very short time-to-market and upgrade cycles, and thus, short development time. To address this requirement, application developers often rely heavily on API frameworks and libraries ...
