  • Mining top-k approximate closed patterns in an imprecise database
    • Authors: Xiaomei Yu, Hong Wang, Xiangwei Zheng
      Pages: 97 - 107
      Abstract: Over the last few years, the growth of data is exponential, leading to colossal amounts of information being produced by computational systems. Meanwhile, the data in real-life applications are usually incomplete and imprecise, which poses big challenges for researchers to obtain exact and valid analytical results with traditional frequent pattern mining methods. Since the potential faults can break the original characteristics of data patterns into multiple small fragments, it is impossible to recover the long true patterns from these fragments. To explore the huge amount of imprecise data by means of frequent pattern mining, we propose a service-oriented model that enables a new way of service provisioning based on users' QoS (quality of service) requirements. The novel model is developed to solve the problem of mining top-k approximate closed patterns in imprecise databases and will be further applied to diagnosis and treatment of potential patients in online medical applications. We test the novel model in an imprecise medical database and the experimental results show that the new model can successfully improve the health services for online customers.

  • An ontology-based cloud infrastructure service discovery and selection
           system
    • Authors: Manoranjan Parhi, Binod Kumar Pattanayak, Manas Ranjan Patra
      Pages: 108 - 119
      Abstract: In recent years, due to global economic downfall, many of the organisations have resorted to downsizing their Information Technology (IT) expenses by adopting innovative computing models like cloud computing, which allows business houses to reduce their fixed IT costs by promising a greener, scalable, cost-effective alternative to utilise the IT resources. A growing number of pay-per-use cloud services are now available on the web in the form of Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). With the increase in the number of services, there has also been an increase in demand and adoption of cloud services making cloud service identification and discovery a challenging task. This is due to varied service, descriptions, non-standardised naming conventions, heterogeneity in type and features of cloud services. Thus, selecting an appropriate cloud service according to consumer requirements is a daunting task, especially for applications that use a composition of different cloud services. In this paper, we have designed an ontology-based cloud infrastructure service discovery and selection system that defines functional and non-functional concepts, attributes and relations of infrastructure services. We have shown how the system enables one to discover appropriate services optimally as requested by consumers.

  • Certificateless multi-signcryption scheme in standard model
    • Authors: Xuguang Wu, Minqing Zhang, Shuaishuai Zhu
      Pages: 120 - 127
      Abstract: A signcryption scheme can realise the security objectives of encryption and signature simultaneously, which has lower computational cost and communication overhead than the sign-then-encrypt approach. To adapt multi-user settings and solve key escrow problem of ID-based multi-signcryption schemes, we defined the formal model of certificateless multi-signcryption scheme and proposed a certificateless multi-signcryption scheme in the standard model. The scheme is proved secure against adaptive chosen ciphertext attacks and adaptive chosen message attacks under decisional bilinear Diffie-Hellman assumption and computational Diffie-Hellman assumption respectively.

  • Per-service security SLAs for cloud security management: model and
           implementation
    • Authors: Valentina Casola, Alessandra De Benedictis, Jolanda Modic, Massimiliano Rak, Umberto Villano
      Pages: 128 - 138
      Abstract: In the cloud computing context, Service Level Agreements (SLAs) 'tailored' to specific Cloud Service Customers (CSCs) seem to be still an utopia, and things are even worse as regards the security terms to be guaranteed. In fact, existing cloud SLAs focus only on a few service terms, and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) mainly provide uniform guarantees for all offered services and for all customers, regardless of any particular service characteristics or of customer-specific needs. This paper presents a framework that enables the adoption of a per-service SLA model, supporting the automatic implementation of cloud security SLAs tailored to the needs of each customer for specific service instances. In particular, the process and the software architecture for per-service SLA implementation are shown. A case study application, related to the provisioning of a secure web container service, is presented and discussed, to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed solution.

  • A (multi) GPU iterative reconstruction algorithm based on Hessian penalty
           term for sparse MRI
    • Authors: Salvatore Cuomo, Pasquale De Michele, Francesco Piccialli
      Pages: 139 - 156
      Abstract: A recent trend in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) research field is to design and adopt machines that are able to acquire undersampled clinical data, reducing the time for which the patient is lying in the body scanner. Unfortunately, the missing information in these undersampled acquired datasets leads to artefacts in the reconstructed image; therefore, computationally expensive image reconstruction techniques are required. In this paper, we present an iterative regularisation strategy with a second-order derivative penalty term for the reconstruction of undersampled image datasets. Moreover, we compare this approach with other constrained minimisation methods, resulting in improved accuracy. Finally, an implementation on a massively parallel architecture environment, a multi Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) system, of the proposed iterative algorithm is presented. The resulting performance gives clinically-feasible reconstruction run times, speed-up and improvements in terms of reconstruction accuracy of the undersampled MRI images.

  • Labelled evolutionary Petri nets/genetic algorithm based approach for
           workflow scheduling in cloud computing
    • Authors: Manel Femmam, Okba Kazar, Laid Kahloul, Mohamed El-Kabir Fareh
      Pages: 157 - 169
      Abstract: Nowadays, many evolutionary algorithms for workflow scheduling in cloud computing are available. Most of those algorithms focus on the effectiveness, discarding the issue of flexibility. Research on Petri nets addresses the issue of flexibility; many extensions have been proposed to facilitate the modelling of complex systems. Typical extensions are the addition of 'colour', 'time' and 'hierarchy'. By mapping scheduling problems into Petri nets, we are able to use standard Petri net theory. In this case, the scheduling problem can be reduced to finding an optimal sequence of transitions leading from an initial marking to a final one. To find the optimal scheduling, we propose a new approach based on a recently proposed formalism 'Evolutionary Petri Net' (EPN), which is an extension of Petri net, enriched with two genetic operators, crossover and mutation. The objectives of our research are to minimise the workflow application completion time (makespan) as well as the cost incurred by using cloud resources. Some numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate the usefulness of our algorithm.

  • An improved SMURF scheme for cleaning RFID data
    • Authors: He Xu, Jie Ding, Peng Li, Daniele Sgandurra, Ruchuan Wang
      Pages: 170 - 178
      Abstract: RFID technology is widely used in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment for object tracking. With the expansion of its application areas, the demand for reliability of business data is increasingly important. In order to fulfil the needs of upper-level applications, data cleaning is essential and directly affects the correctness and completeness of the business data, so it needs to filter and handle RFID data. The traditional statistical smoothing for unreliable RFID data (SMURF) algorithm is only aimed at constant speed data flow during the process of data cleaning. In this paper, we overcome the shortage of SMURF algorithm, and an improved SMURF scheme in two aspects is proposed. The first one is based on dynamic tags, and the second one considers the influence of data redundancy. The experiments verify that the improved scheme is reasonable in dynamic settings of sliding window, and the accuracy is improved as well.

  • Adaptive cooperation in parallel memetic algorithms for rich vehicle
           routing problems
    • Authors: Jakub Nalepa, Miroslaw Blocho
      Pages: 179 - 192
      Abstract: Designing and implementing cooperation schemes for parallel algorithms has become a very important task recently. The scheme, which defines the cooperation topology, frequency and strategies for handling transferred solutions, has a tremendous influence on the algorithm search capabilities, and can help balance the exploration and exploitation of the vast solution space. In this paper, we present both static and dynamic schemes - the former are selected before the algorithm execution, whereas the latter are dynamically updated on the fly to better respond to the optimisation progress. To understand the impact of such cooperation approaches, we applied them in the parallel memetic algorithms for solving rich routing problems, and performed an extensive experimental study using well-known benchmark sets. This experimental analysis is backed with the appropriate statistical tests to verify the importance of the retrieved results.

  • Cloud computing based on agent technology, super-recursive algorithms
           and DNA
    • Authors: Mark Burgin, Rao Mikkilineni
      Pages: 193 - 204
      Abstract: Agents and agent systems are becoming more and more important in the development of a variety of fields such as ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence, autonomous computing, data analytics, machine learning, intelligent systems and intelligent robotics. In this paper, we examine interactions of theoretical computer science with computer and network technologies analysing how agent technology emerged, matured and progressed in mathematical models of computation. We demonstrate how these models are used in the novel distributed intelligent managed element (DIME) network architecture (DNA), which extends the conventional computational model of information processing networks, allowing improvement of the efficiency and resiliency of computational processes. Two implementations of DNA described in the paper illustrate how the application of agent technology radically improves current cloud computing state of the art. First example demonstrates the live migration of a database from a laptop to a cloud without losing transactions and without using containers or moving virtual machine images. The second example exhibits the implementation of cloud agnostic computing over a network of public and private clouds where live computing process workflows are migrated from one cloud to another without losing transactions. Both these implementations demonstrate the power of scientific thought for dramatically extending the current state of the art of cloud and grid computing practice.

  • Attendance management system using selfies and signatures
    • Authors: Mark Burgin, Rao Mikkilineni
      Pages: 205 - 210
      Abstract: There have been multiple proposals to optimise student attendance management in higher education. However, each method has pros and cons and we have not yet found a perfect solution. In this study, a novel framework for attendance management is proposed that consists of a mobile device and a web application. During lectures, students participating in the lecture can register their attendance on the mobile device with their selfie or their signature. After the lecture is finished, the registration data are sent to the database and they are added to the 'RollSheet'. This paper reports an overview of this system and the results of an evaluation after a trial period, which was conducted in the second semester of the 2015 fiscal year.
