As industry moves towards many-core chips, networks-on-chip (NoCs) are emerging as the scalable fabric for interconnecting the cores. With power now the first-order design constraint, early-stage estimation of NoC power has become crucially important. ORION [29] was amongst the first NoC power models released, and has since been fairly widely used for(More)
191 according to the simulation results. In order to mitigate the impact two techniques may be used: 1) design optimization such as insert buffers to reduce the increased delay due to intertier connections and 2) insert registers in the path across different tiers. In this paper, we studied the electrical characterization of intertier connections including(More)
The sparsity problem in collaborative filtering (CF) is a major bottleneck for most CF methods. In this paper, we consider a novel approach for alleviating the sparsity problem in CF by transferring user-item rating patterns from a dense auxiliary rating matrix in other domains (e.g., a popular movie rating website) to a sparse rating matrix in a target(More)
Cross-domain collaborative filtering solves the sparsity problem by transferring rating knowledge across multiple domains. In this paper, we propose a rating-matrix generative model (RMGM) for effective cross-domain collaborative filtering. We first show that the relatedness across multiple rating matrices can be established by finding a shared implicit(More)
The innate immune system is absolutely required for host defence, but, uncontrolled, it leads to inflammatory disease. This control is mediated, in part, by cytokines that are secreted by macrophages. Immune regulation is extraordinarily complex, and can be best investigated with systems approaches (that is, using computational tools to predict regulatory(More)
In this paper, we utilize the probabilities of the first digits of quantized DCT (discrete cosine transform) coefficients from individual AC (alternate current) modes to detect doubly compressed JPEG images. Our proposed features, named by mode based first digit features (MBFDF), have been shown to outperform all previous methods on discriminating doubly(More)
Optimization in dynamic environments is important in real-world applications, which requires the optimization algorithms to be able to find and track the changing optimum efficiently over time. Among various algorithms for dynamic optimization, particle swarm optimization algorithms (PSOs) are attracting more and more attentions in recent years, due to(More)
BitTorrent, the immensely popular file swarming system, suffers a fundamental problem: unavailability. Although swarming scales well to tolerate flash crowds for popular content, it is less useful for unpopular or rare files as peers arriving after the initial rush find the content unavailable. Our primary contribution is a model to quantify content(More)
—Interference alignment (IA) has evolved as a powerful technique in the information theoretic framework for achieving the optimal degrees of freedom of interference channel. In practical systems, the design of specific interference alignment schemes is subject to various criteria and constraints. In this paper, we propose novel transceiver schemes for the(More)
