Despite increasing usage of mobile computing, exploiting its full potential is difficult due to its inherent problems such as resource scarcity, frequent disconnections, and mobility. Mobile cloud computing can address these problems by executing mobile applications on resource providers external to the mobile device. In this paper, we provide an extensive(More)
The use of ontologies lies at the very heart of the newly emerging era of Semantic Web. They provide a shared conceptual-ization of some domain that may be communicated between people and application systems. A common problem with web ontologies is that they tend to grow large in scale and complexity as a result of ever increasing information requirements.(More)
The new era of semantic Web has enabled users to extract semantically relevant data from the Web. The backbone of the semantic Web is a shared uniform structure which defines how Web information is split up regardless of the implementation language or the syntax used to represent the data. This structure is known as an ontology. As information on the Web(More)
EXtensible Markup Language (XML) has emerged as the dominant standard in describing and exchanging data among heterogeneous data sources. XML with its self-describing hierarchical structure and its associated XML Schema (XSD) provides the flexibility and the manipulative power needed to accommodate complex, disconnected, heterogeneous data. The issue of(More)
Despite increasing usage of mobile computing, exploiting its full potential is difficult due to problems such as resource sparseness. In this paper, we explore the feasibility of a mobile cloud computing framework to use local resources to solve these problems. The framework aims to determine a priori the usefulness of sharing workload at runtime. The(More)
Although smartphones are increasingly becoming more and more powerful, enabling pervasiveness is severely hindered by the resource limitations of mobile devices. The combination of social interactions and mobile devices in the form of 'crowd computing' has the potential to surpass these limitations. In this paper, we introduce Hon-eybee; a crowd computing(More)
