AbstrAct Web services are emerging as a major technology for building service-oriented distributed systems. Potentially, various resources on the Internet can be virtualized as Web services for a wider use by their communities. Service discovery becomes an issue of vital importance for Web services applications. This article presents ROSSE, a Rough Sets(More)
P2P networks facilitate people belonging to a community to share resources of interest. However, discovering resources in a large scale P2P network poses a number of challenges. Although Distributed Hash Table (DHT) structured P2P networks have shown enhanced scalability in routing messages, they only support key based exact matches. This paper presents(More)
Myelolipoma is a rare, benign neoplasm composed of mature adipocytes and hematopoietic tissue, mainly occurring in the adrenal glands. The majority of extra-adrenal myelolipomas have been identified in the presacral region and primary mediastinal myelolipoma is very rare. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are effective methods to(More)
This paper presents a predictable and grouped genetic algorithm (PGGA) for job scheduling. The novelty of the PGGA is twofold: (1) a job workload estimation algorithm is designed to estimate a job workload based on its historical execution records, (2) the divisible load theory (DLT) is applied to predict an optimal solution in searching a large scheduling(More)
Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been widely used in pattern recognition and classification applications. However, ANNs are notably slow in computation especially when the size of data is large. Nowadays, big data has received a momentum from both industry and academia. To fulfill the potentials of ANNs for big data applications, the computation(More)
