  • Athitsos, Vassilis; Hadjieleftheriou, Marios; Kollios, George; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-03-16)
    A common problem in many types of databases is retrieving the most similar matches to a query object. Finding those matches in a large database can be too slow to be practical, especially in domains where objects are ...
  • Li, Ye; West, Richard; Missimer, Eric (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2013-11-23)
    Multi- and many-core processors are becoming increasingly popular in embedded systems. Many of these processors now feature hardware virtualization capabilities, such as the ARM Cortex A15, and x86 processors with Intel ...
  • Li, Ye; Danish, Matthew; West, Rich (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2011-12-20)
    This paper outlines the design of `Quest-V', which is implemented as a collection of separate kernels operating together as a distributed system on a chip. Quest-V uses virtualization techniques to isolate kernels and ...
  • West, Richard; Li, Ye; Missimer, Eric (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2013-11-23)
    Modern processors are increasingly featuring multiple cores, as well as support for hardware virtualization. While these processors are common in desktop and server-class computing, they are less prevalent in embedded and ...
  • Matta, Ibrahim; Yilmaz, Selma (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2004-03-01)
    The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an interdomain routing protocol that allows each Autonomous System (AS) to define its own routing policies independently and use them to select the best routes. By means of policies, ...
  • Chau, Michael; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2005-03-12)
    A human-computer interface (HCI) system designed for use by people with severe disabilities is presented. People that are severely paralyzed or afflicted with diseases such as ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) or multiple sclerosis ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Lin, Kwei-Jay; Son, Sang (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-07-03)
    This report summarizes the technical presentations and discussions that took place during RTDB'96: the First International Workshop on Real-Time Databases, which was held on March 7 and 8, 1996 in Newport Beach, California. ...
  • Baruah, Sanjoy; Bestavros, Azer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-05-05)
    There is an increased interest in using broadcast disks to support mobile access to real-time databases. However, previous work has only considered the design of real-time immutable broadcast disks, the contents of which ...
  • Morcos, Hany; Bestavros, Azer; Matta, Ibrahim (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2006-10-15)
    Personal communication devices are increasingly equipped with sensors that are able to collect and locally store information from their environs. The mobility of users carrying such devices, and hence the mobility of sensor ...
  • Rosales, Rómer (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-12-04)
    The performance of different classification approaches is evaluated using a view-based approach for motion representation. The view-based approach uses computer vision and image processing techniques to register and process ...
  • Theriault, Diane; Wu, Zheng; Hristov, Nickolay; Swartz, Sharon; Breuer, Kenneth; Kunz, Thomas; Betke, Margrit (CS Department, Boston University, 2010-09-06)
    The Brazilian free-tailed bat, Tadarida brasiliensis, roosts in very large colonies, consisting of hundreds of thousands of individuals. Each night, bats emerge from their day roosts in dense columns in a highly coordinated ...
  • Alon, Jonathan; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1999-12-01)
    A specialized formulation of Azarbayejani and Pentland's framework for recursive recovery of motion, structure and focal length from feature correspondences tracked through an image sequence is presented. The specialized ...
  • Wang, Yuefeng; Esposito, Flavio; Matta, Ibrahim; Day, John (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2013-11-11)
    The lack of a complete Internet architecture continues to dramatically increase the complexity and management cost of all distributed systems. Our Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA) is a clean-slate solution that ...
  • Deshpande, Smita; Betke, Margrit (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2009-03-11)
    We present RefLink, an interface that allows users to analyze the content of webpages by dynamically linking to an online encyclopedia such as Wikipedia. Upon opening a webpage, RefLink instantly provides a list of terms ...
  • Liu, Lifeng; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2000-12-04)
    An improved method for deformable shape-based image segmentation is described. Image regions are merged together and/or split apart, based on their agreement with an a priori distribution on the global deformation parameters ...
  • Heddaya, Abdelsalam; Helal, Abdelsalam (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1997-12-04)
    Reliability and availability have long been considered twin system properties that could be enhanced by distribution. Paradoxically, the traditional definitions of these properties do not recognize the positive impact of ...
  • Gacs, Peter (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-01-05)
    In a probabilistic cellular automaton in which all local transitions have positive probability, the problem of keeping a bit of information for more than a constant number of steps is nontrivial, even in an infinite ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Chen, Marina; Crovella, Mark; Heddaya, Abdelsalam; Sclaroff, Stan; Cowie, James (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-03-21)
    The exploding demand for services like the World Wide Web reflects the potential that is presented by globally distributed information systems. The number of WWW servers world-wide has doubled every 3 to 5 months since ...
  • Liu, Lifeng; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2001-06)
    Based on our previous work in deformable shape model-based object detection, a new method is proposed that uses index trees for organizing shape features to support content-based retrieval applications. In the proposed ...
  • Skowyra, Rick; Lapets, Andrei; Bestavros, Azer; Kfoury, Assaf (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2013-02-08)
    The growing popularity of infrastructure-as-a-service cloud computing, software-defined networking, and related technologies have enabled the rapid creation of complex, large-scale distributed systems. Many of these systems ...
