Testing and executing large-scale computational applications in public clouds is becoming prevalent due to cost saving, elasticity, and scalability. However, how to increase the reliability and reduce the cost to run large-scale applications in public clouds is still a big challenge. In this paper, we analyzed the pricing schemes of Amazon Elastic Compute(More)
A sufficient knowledge of the demographics of a commuting public is essential in formulating and implementing more targeted transportation policies, as commuters exhibit different ways of traveling—including time in the day of travel, the duration of travel, and even the choice of transport mode. With the advent of the Automated Fare Collection system(More)
The advent of the era of Big Data has allowed many researchers to dig into various socio-technical systems, including social media platforms. In particular, these systems have provided them with certain verifiable means to look into certain aspects of human behavior. In this work, we are specifically interested in the behavior of individuals on social media(More)
When disaster events capture global attention users of Twitter form transient interest communities that disseminate information and other messages online. This paper examines content related to Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) as it hit the Philippines and triggered international humanitarian response and media attention. It reveals how Twitter(More)
Investigating congestion in train rapid transit systems (RTS) in today’s urban cities is a challenge compounded by limited data availability and difficulties in model validation. Here, we integrate information from travel smart card data, a mathematical model of route choice, and a full-scale agent-based model of the Singapore RTS to provide a more(More)
A general framework for probing the dynamic evolution of spatial networks comprised of nodes applying force amongst each other is presented. Aside from the already reported magnitude of forces and elongation thresholds, we show that preservation of links in a network is also crucially dependent on how nodes are connected and how edges are directed. We(More)
