The popularity of smartphones, cloud computing, and the app store model have led to cellular networks being used in a completely different way than what they were designed for. As a consequence, mobile applications impose new challenges in the design and efficient configuration of constrained networks to maximize application's performance. Such difficulties(More)
Most of these opportunistic pursuits are exploited through automated programs, known as bots. We propose a framework (Stweeler) to study bot impact and influence on Twitter from systems and social media perspectives. Research Questions 1). About bots: Why do bots exist in such quantity in a large OSN such as Twitter? 2). Bot usage and impact: How do(More)
Physico-chemical traits, amino acid composition and microbial status of rabbit meat were checked after rabbit feed supplementation by bacteriocinogenic and probiotic strain Enterococcus faecium CCM 4231 in this study. Significant increase of amino acids threonine and serine (p < 0.001) in Musculus longissimus dorsi of rabbits was noted after CCM 4231(More)
There is an obvious trend that more and more data and computation are migrating into networks nowadays. Combining mature virtualization technologies with service-centric networking, which is deemed as a natural evolution of information-centric networking in 5G context, we are entering into an era where countless (mobile) services reside in an ISP network to(More)
There is an obvious trend that more and more data and computation are migrating into networks nowadays. Combining mature virtualization technologies with service-centric networking, we are entering into an era where countless services reside in an ISP network to provide low-latency access. Such services are often computation intensive and are dynamically(More)
