    Adaptive Histogram Algorithms for Approximating Frequency Queries in Dynamic Data Streams

    Histograms can be used as summaries of frequency data. However, staying within the error tolerance becomes problematic when dealing with dynamic data streams. For dynamic data streams, the histograms can be reconstructed every time data is either discarded or collected - which is very inefficient. If a histogram is to...

    Content-Based Retrieval in Peer-to-Peer Networks Using Cooperative Caching

    Devising a uniform paradigm for the representation of multimedia data contents in distributed systems in the presence of heterogeneity, distribution, and semantic gap is a difficult task. When adding technological limitations to this mix, the problem becomes more complex. In this paper, the authors present a logic-based model for representing...

    Scheduling and Rate Assignment Algorithms for Policy Driven QoS Support in High Speed Cellular Networks

    Due to the growing popularity of high data-rate multimedia services such as streaming, gaming, and video conferencing using mobile devices, providing strict QoS support in cellular networks is becoming crucial. Moreover, differentiated service requirements and service plans promote service providers to enforce their own policies aligned with their goal of...

    Analyzing the Case for Migrating to Thin Clients for Everyday Computing Needs in the U.s. Air Force

    Much like most public and private organizations, thick clients (traditional PCs) have been a mainstay in the U.S. Air Force's computing environments since the early 1990s. Unfortunately, the inherent advantages of having the processing, applications and data storage at the desktop has come at great expense in terms of administrative...

    Moving Away From Traditional Backups and Moving Towards Data Protection

    The research paper reviews three backup trends, Continuous Data Protection (CDP), Data Deduplication and Data Replication and shows the advantages and disadvantages of each backup trend and determines if one or more current backup trends is more cost effective than a backup solution consisting of a robotic tape library and...

    Can Cloud Computing Ever Replace Traditional Desktop Computing?

    Cloud computing is a new and exciting technology that is more evolutionary in design than revolutionary. Broken down to its fundamental features, cloud computing is the movement from individual business' dedicated facilities into a virtualized environment that is hosted across multiple shared data centers connected via the internet, allowing processing...

    Simulation and Modeling of a Virtual Library for Navigation and Evacuation

    There has been an increasing interest in the use of virtual reality for learning and training. The development of virtual reality environment makes it possible for a user to understand and observe multiple paths that an agent would observe during navigation and evacuation. The sense of "Being there" develops when...

    Progressive Content-Sensitive Data Retrieval in Sensor Networks

    For a sensor network comprising autonomous and self-organizing data sources, efficient similarity-based search for semantic-rich resources (such as video data) is a challenging task due to the lack of infrastructures and the multiple limitations (such as bandwidth, storage, and energy). While the past research discussed much on routing protocols for...

    Undersea Communications Cables: Global Communications Lifelines

    Undersea communications cables have been in use for global communications since 1863. As global communications matured and the need for greater capacity grew, the technologies for passing traffic over these undersea lines became more sophisticated. With the advent of newer technologies, such as fiber optics and the internet, undersea cables...
