The easiest way for a user to express his needs regarding a desired service is to use natural language. The main issues come from the fact that the natural language is incomplete and ambiguous, while the service composition process should lead to valid services. In this paper we propose a natural language service assemblage method based on composition(More)
The aim of our research is to find an efficient solution to the services QoS optimization problem. This NP-hard problem is well known in the service-oriented computing field: given a business workflow that includes a set of abstract services and a set of concrete service implementations for each abstract service, the goal is to find the optimal combination(More)
Web services QoS optimization problem using the concept of Lorenz dominance is addressed. Lorenz solutions are equitable and well balanced. Such an approach could simplify the Decision Maker's choice. Evolutionary detection of Lorenz solution seem to be an appealing one. Some state-of-the art MOEAs are slightly modified for addressing the QoS optimization(More)
The widespread of Web services in the ubiquitous computing era and the impossibility to predict a priori all possible user needs generates the necessity for on-demand service composition. Natural language is one of the the easiest ways for a user to express what he expects regarding a service. Two main problems need to be solved in order to create a(More)
An algorithm for hiding patientpsilas data from JPEG ultrasound images, applied directly on DCT (discrete cosine transform) coefficients is presented. The algorithm can detect textual information using the amount of energy, computed using only AC coefficients, without converting medical images/video back to the spatial (uncompressed) domain. In order to(More)
