We present the design and implementation of AppScale, an open source extension to the Google AppEngine (GAE) Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud technology. Our extensions build upon the GAE SDK to facilitate distributed execution of GAE applications over virtual-ized cluster resources, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud systems such as(More)
The proliferation of camera-equipped mobile devices with enhanced mobile computing power and network connectivity results in a rising demand for mobile image search. Although image search has been studied extensively over the last few decades, most existing solutions are based on and optimized for desktop and server platforms, not for mobile devices. In(More)

Our extensions build upon the GAE SDK to facilitate distributed execution of GAE applications over Xen-based clusters, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud systems such as Amazon's AWS/EC2(More)
Face annotation makes it easy to share and manage digital photos and videos. While state-of-the-art face recognition algorithms can achieve high accuracy to support automatic face annotation, their implementations on an embedded platform cannot achieve real-time performance due to the demanding computational requirement. However, the availability of an(More)
