Green Mining is a field of MSR that studies software energy consumption and relies on software performance data. Unfortunately there is a severe lack of publicly available software power use performance data. This means that green mining researchers must generate this data themselves by writing tests, building multiple revisions of a product, and then(More)
Digital circuits from software designs and formal executable specifications can be automatically synthesized using hardware compilation or 'C based logic synthesis'. Designs can be verified using that same formal specification and coupled with the increasing deployment of higher-level C based languages and IP reuse in hardware design and system codesign, C(More)
This work proposes a natural language stegosystem for Twitter, modifying tweets as they are written to hide 4 bits of payload per tweet, which is a greater payload than previous systems have achieved. The system, CoverTweet, includes novel components, as well as some already developed in the literature. We believe that the task of transforming covers during(More)
The mixing of audio signals has been at the foundation of audio production since the advent of electrical recording in the 1920’s, yet the mathematical and psychological bases for this activity are relatively under-studied. This paper investigates how the process of mixing music is conducted. We introduce a method of transformation from a “gainspace” to a(More)
Extending battery life on mobile devices has become an important topic recently due to the increasing frequency of smartphone adoption. A primary component of smart phone energy consumption is the apps that run on these devices. Many apps have embedded advertising and web browser apps will show ads that are embedded on webpages. Other researchers have found(More)
We report on a novel single-photon source using a single calcium ion trapped between the end facets of two optical fibers. The optical fibers act as photonic channels, and in addition their metallic jackets provide a trapping electric field for the ion. Our system successfully combines a stable single-atom emitter with fiber optics, demonstrating remarkable(More)
LUT based reconfigurability is being complemented with a new, emerging class of reconfigurable technology based on ALU and heterogeneous architectures. Moreover, existing FPGA technology has experienced recent advances that go beyond other implementation technologies such as DSP, ASIC or ASSP. Already deployed within the network infrastructure and(More)
With the growing density and shrinking feature size of modern semiconductors, it is increasingly difficult to manufacture defect free semiconductors that maintain acceptable levels of reliability for long periods of time. These systems are increasingly susceptible to wear-out by failing to meet their operational specifications for an extended period of(More)
