In order to achieve genuine web intelligence, building some kind of large general machine-readable conceptual scheme (i.e. ontology) seems inescapable. Yet the past 20 years have shown that manual ontology-building is not practicable. The recent explosion of free user-supplied knowledge on the Web has led to great strides in automatic ontology-building, but… (More)
Nations around the world rely on the correct and continued functioning of industrial control systems (ICS) to keep economies moving and provide critical services such as electricity and clean water. This paper provides an analysis of the current threat landscape facing ICS. Discussion is provided on the actors involved, their motivations, and specific… (More)
This article explains how sheaves and homology theory can be applied to simplicial complex models of wireless communication networks to study their vulnerability to jamming. It develops two classes of invariants (one local and one global) for studying which nodes and links present more of a liability to the network's performance when under attack.
In this forum we highlight innovative thought, design, and research in the area of interaction design and sustainability, illustrating the diversity of approaches across HCI communities. <b>--- Lisa Nathan and Samuel Mann, Editors</b>
—In this position paper we argue for the role that Topological Data Modeling (TDM) principles can play in providing a framework for sensor integration. While used successfully in standard (quantitative) sensors, we are developing this methodology in new directions to make it appropriate specifically for semantic information sources, including keyterms,… (More)
—Many complicated network problems can be easily understood on small networks. Difficulties arise when small networks are combined into larger ones. Fortunately, the mathematical theory of sheaves was constructed to address just this kind of situation; it extends locally-defined structures to globally valid inferences by way of consistency relations. This… (More)
—This article explains how to construct a protocol-independent model for passing traffic through a wireless network with a single channel carrier sense multiple access/collision detection (CSMA/CD) media access model.
—This article presents a two-stage topological algorithm for recovering an estimate of a quasiperiodic function from a set of noisy measurements. The first stage of the algorithm is a topological phase estimator, which detects the quasiperiodic structure of the function without placing additional restrictions on the function. By respecting this phase… (More)
