While pervasive computing provides a potentially vast business opportunity for many industry participants, it also carries challenges along with it. In this paper, a passport-based architecture has been proposed to convert this unpredictable, highly dynamic pervasive environment into a trusted business platform. It utilizes the widely accepted passport(More)
While pervasive computing provides a potentially vast business opportunity for many industry participants it also brings with it challenges. In this article, we further analyze and demonstrate how to use the previously developed MobiPass architecture to convert the unpredictable, highly dynamic pervasive environment into a trusted business platform .It(More)
In this paper, we describe how to apply our previous research outcome, the MobiPass architecture to the retailing industry to enrich the shopping experience and provide new capabilities in the full retailing process. We consider these capabilities within the framework of Assael's five stages of the retail process By employing the MobiPass architecture in(More)
A novel class of highly selective inhibitors of p38 MAP kinase was discovered from high throughput screening. The synthesis and optimization of a series of 5-amino-N-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl-3-phenylmethanones is described. An X-ray crystal structure of this series bound in the ATP binding pocket of unphosphorylated p38alpha established the presence of a(More)
While mobile computing provides a potentially vast business opportunity for many industry participants, it also raises issues such as security and performance. This paper proposes a Local Broker enabled MobiPass architecture based on our previous research outcomes. Our MobiPass architecture can convert the unpredictable and highly dynamic mobile environment(More)
Recent developments in information technology shift the computing paradigm towards greater dynamism and unpredictability, which raises new challenges. In dynamic computing environments, the relationship between transacting entities is not pre-determined, and these entities may not necessarily have previous knowledge or experience of each other. In such a(More)
