Real-Time Systems: An Introduction and the State-of-the-Art

Real-Time Systems: An Introduction and the State-of-the-Art

Date: March 16, 2009
Creator: Kavi, Krishna M.; Akl, Robert G. & Hurson, Ali
Description: This encyclopedia article gives an overview of the broad area of real-time systems. This task is daunting because real-time systems are everywhere, and yet no generally accepted definition differentiates real-time systems from non-real-time systems. The authors make an attempt at providing a general overview of the different classes of real-time systems, scheduling of tasks (or threads) in such systems, design tools and environments for real-time systems, real-time operating systems, and embedded systems. The authors conclude their discussion with research challenges that still remain.

The Decomposition of Human-Written Book Summaries

The Decomposition of Human-Written Book Summaries

Date: March 2009
Creator: Ceylan, Hakan & Mihalcea, Rada, 1974-
Description: In this paper, the authors evaluate the extent to which human-written book summaries can be obtained through cut-and-paste operations from the original book. The authors analyze the effect of the parameters involved in the decomposition algorithm, and highlight the distinctions in coverage obtained for different summary types.

Text-to-text Semantic Similarity for Automatic Short Answer Grading

Text-to-text Semantic Similarity for Automatic Short Answer Grading

Date: March 2009
Creator: Mohler, Michael & Mihalcea, Rada, 1974-
Description: In this paper, the authors explore unsupervised techniques for the task of automatic short answer grading. The authors compare a number of knowledge-based and corpus-based measures of text similarity, evaluate the effect of domain and size on the corpus-based measures, and also introduce a novel technique to improve the performance of the system by integrating automatic feedback from the student answers. Overall, our system significantly and consistently outperforms other unsupervised methods for short answer grading that have been proposed in the past.

Topic Identification Using Wikipedia Graph Centrality

Topic Identification Using Wikipedia Graph Centrality

Date: May 2009
Creator: Coursey, Kino High & Mihalcea, Rada, 1974-
Description: This paper presents a method for automatic topic identification using a graph-centrality algorithm applied to an encyclopedic graph derived from Wikipedia. When tested on a data set with manually assigned topics, the system is found to significantly improve over a simpler baseline that does not make use of the external encyclopedic knowledge.

Robocamp: Encouraging Young Women to Embrace STEM

Date: February 2009
Creator: Akl, Robert G. & Keathly, David
Description: This paper describes the efforts and results of a plan for actively recruiting students to undergraduate computer science and engineering programs at the University of North Texas (UNT). Such recruitment of students is critical to the country's efforts to increase the number of engineering professionals, and is a priority for the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department at UNT.

Throughput Validation of an Advanced Channel Assignment Algorithm in IEEE 802.11 WLAN

Throughput Validation of an Advanced Channel Assignment Algorithm in IEEE 802.11 WLAN

Date: February 2009
Creator: Haidar, Mohamad; Al-Rizzo, Hussain Mudhaffar Younis, 1957-; Chan, Yupo; Akl, Robert G. & Bouharras, Mohamad
Description: In this article, an enhanced channel-assignment algorithm at the Access Points (APs) of a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) is validated. The algorithm aims to maximize the Signal-to-Interference Ratio (SIR) at the user level in order to determine the appropriate channel at the APs. The initial channel assignment step at the APs is based on minimizing the total interference between APs. Based on this initial assignment, the SIR for each user is calculated. Then, another channel assignment is performed based on maximizing the SIR at the users. The algorithm can be applied to any WLAN, irrespective of the user distribution and user load. Results show that the algorithm is capable of significantly increasing the SIR over the WLAN, which in turn should improve throughput. Therefore, the authors use OPNET simulation tool to construct several realistic scenarios in order to validate our results.

Using Encyclopedic Knowledge for Automatic Topic Identification

Using Encyclopedic Knowledge for Automatic Topic Identification

Date: May 2009
Creator: Coursey, Kino High; Mihalcea, Rada, 1974- & Moen, William E.
Description: Abstract: This paper presents a method for automatic topic identification using an encyclopedic graph derived from Wikipedia. The system is found to exceed the performance of previously proposed machine learning algorithms for topic identification, with an annotation consistency comparable to human annotations.
