Automating Software Customization via Crowdsourcing using Association Rule Mining and Markov Decision Processes
As systems grow in size and complexity so do their configuration possibilities. Users of modern systems are easy to be confused and overwhelmed by the amount of choices they need to make in order to fit their systems to ...
Extending Topic Models With Syntax and Semantics Relationships
Probabilistic topic modeling is a powerful tool to uncover hidden thematic structure of documents. These hidden structures are useful for extracting concepts of documents and other data mining tasks, such as information ...
Model Checking of Distributed Multi-Threaded Java Applications
In this dissertation, we focus on the verification of distributed Java applications composed of communicating multithreaded processes. We choose model checking as the verification technique. We propose an instance of the ...
Model-Based Dynamic Resource Management for Service Oriented Clouds
Cloud computing is a flexible platform for software as a service, as more and more applications are deployed on cloud. Major challenges in cloud include how to characterize the workload of the applications and how to manage ...
Novel Medium Access Control (MAC) Protocols for Wireless Sensor and Ad Hoc Networks (WSANs) and Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs)
Efficient medium access control (MAC) is a key part of any wireless network communication architecture. MAC protocols are needed for nodes to access the shared wireless medium efficiently. Providing high throughput is one ...
