—The growing computing demand from industry and academia has lead to excessive power consumption which not only impacting long term sustainability of Grids like infrastructures in terms of energy cost but also from environmental perspective. The problem can be addressed by replacing with more energy efficient infrastructures, but the process of switching to(More)
There is a growing trend of using cloud environments for ever growing storage and data processing needs. However, adopting a cloud computing paradigm may have positive as well as negative effects on the data security of service consumers. This paper primarily aims to highlight the major security issues existing in current cloud computing environments. We(More)
—As routing tables in core Internet routers grow to exceed 100 000 entries, it is becoming essential to develop methods to reduce the lookup time required to forward packets toward their destinations. In this paper, we employ a bank of novel thermally tuned fiber-Bragg-grating-based optical correlators to construct an " optical bypass " to accelerate(More)
–Rapid convergence of heterogeneous wireless communication technologies such as Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), Long Term Evolution (LTE) etc., attract new opportunities for collaborative usage. More and more applications are emerging to benefit from their advantages. However, with the range of(More)
Firms are key drivers of urban growth along with households, yet data on businesses and commercial vehicle movements can be quite difficult to obtain. An understanding of firm behavior over time is critical in anticipating urban futures and addressing transportation, land use and other concerns. Firm birth and death, migration and location choice are(More)
In this paper we present the design of a wearable temperature sensing device for remote neonatal monitoring. It is designed for continuous and real-time monitoring of the infants in remote rural areas, for the first few weeks after their birth. It is capable of sensing the neonate's skin temperature with 0.1 • C accuracy to detect the early onset of(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of user personalization and recommendation of news streams. This involves 'learning' from past user behaviour, such as the articles she read or did not read and accurately predicting new articles which she would be most likely to read. Our contribution in this paper is the development of a new algorithm for news(More)
