Learning an integrated hybrid image retrieval system
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-01-06)
Current Web image search engines, such as Google or Bing Images, adopt a hybrid search approach in which a text-based query (e.g. "apple") is used to retrieve a set of relevant images, which are then refined by the user ...
Dynamic monitoring, modeling and management of performance and resources for applications in cloud
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-11-06)
Emerging trends in Cloud computing bring numerous benefits, such as higher performance, fast and flexible provisioning of applications and capacities, lower infrastructure costs, and almost unlimited scalability. However, ...
Interest management scheme and prediction model in intelligent transportation systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-10-12)
This thesis focuses on two important problems related to DDDAS: interest management (data distribution) and prediction models. In order to reduce communication overhead, we propose a new interest management mechanism for ...
A distributed kernel summation framework for machine learning and scientific applications
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-05-11)
The class of computational problems I consider in this thesis share the common trait of requiring consideration of pairs (or higher-order tuples) of data points. I focus on the problem of kernel summation operations ...
Guided teaching interactions with robots: embodied queries and teaching heuristics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-05-17)
The vision of personal robot assistants continues to become more realistic with technological advances in robotics. The increase in the capabilities of robots, presents boundless opportunities for them to perform useful ...
