This paper aims to address two timely energy problems. First, significant low-cost energy reductions can be made in the residential and commercial sectors, but these savings have not been achievable to date. Second, billions of dollars are being spent to install smart meters, yet the energy saving and financial benefits of this infrastructure – without(More)

—This paper presents a novel concept called solar disaggregation. In homes with solar panels, electric utilities are able to meter the net consumption power signals, which measures the difference between whole-home consumption and solar production. Solar disaggregation aims to separate, or " disaggregate " , the production of solar panels from a home's net(More)
An important way to make large training sets is to gather noisy labels from crowds of non experts. We propose a method to aggregate noisy labels collected from a crowd of workers or annotators. Eliciting labels is important in tasks such as judging web search quality and rating products. Our method assumes that labels are generated by a probability(More)
This paper proposes an auto-configuration mechanism for a newly attached SDN (Software-defined Networking) switch and intermediate switches in an SDN/non-SDN hybrid network. Automation of initial configuration of SDN switches brings the benefit of reducing the installation costs and maintaining the operational consistency in an enterprise network. However,(More)
