Management platform of threats information in IoT environment

Recently, the use of IoT devices in living environments has increased due to the development of various wireless communication technologies. As the number of types of IoT devices has grown exponentially, many kinds of insecure operating systems and open source software programs are being used. As they run with security vulnerabilities, IoT devices using such OS and software can be ...

Making tourist guidance systems more intelligent, adaptive and personalised using crowd sourced movement data

Ambient intelligence (AmI) provides adaptive, personalized, intelligent, ubiquitous and interactive services to wide range of users. AmI can have a variety of applications, including smart shops, health care, smart home, assisted living, and location-based services. Tourist guidance is one of the applications where AmI can have a great contribution to the quality of the service, as ...

Detecting crypto-ransomware in IoT networks based on energy consumption footprint

An Internet of Things (IoT) architecture generally consists of a wide range of Internet-connected devices or things such as Android devices, and devices that have more computational capabilities (e.g., storage capacities) are likely to be targeted by ransomware authors. In this paper, we present a machine learning based approach to detect ransomware attacks by monitoring power ...

Fast marching method and modified features fusion in enhanced dynamic hand gesture segmentation and detection method under complicated background

Recent development in the field of human–computer interaction has led renewed interest in dynamic hand gesture segmentation based on gesture recognition system. Despite its long clinical success, dynamic hand gesture segmentation using webcam vision becomes technically challenging and suffers the problem of non-accurate and poor hand gesture segmentation where the hand region is ...

Agile risk management using software agents

Risk management is an important process in Software Engineering. However, it can be perceived as somewhat contrary to the more lightweight processes used in Agile methods. Thus an appropriate and realistic risk management model is required as well as tool support that minimizes human effort. We propose the use of software agents to carry out risk management tasks and make use of ...

Social network analysis to influence career development

Social network analysis techniques have shown a potential for influencing graduates to meet industry needs. In this paper, we propose a social-web driven solutions to bridge formal education and industry needs. The proposed career development framework utilizes social network analytics, influence diffusion algorithms and persuasive technology models along three phases: (1) career ...

Towards disappearing user interfaces for ubiquitous computing: human enhancement from sixth sense to super senses

The enhancement of human senses electronically is possible when pervasive computers interact unnoticeably with humans in ubiquitous computing. The design of computer user interfaces towards “disappearing” forces the interaction with humans using a content rather than a menu driven approach, thus the emerging requirement for huge number of non-technical users interfacing intuitively ...

Large-scale microscopic simulation of taxi services. Berlin and Barcelona case studies

The paper presents research on large-scale microscopic simulation of taxi services in Berlin and Barcelona based on floating car data collected by local taxi fleets. Firstly, Berlin’s and Barcelona’s taxi markets are shortly described and the demand and supply data obtained from FCD analysed. Secondly, the online taxi dispatching problem formulation for this specific case is given, ...

Advanced services for critical infrastructures protection

In this paper an overview of the first results of FP7 CIPRNet project is presented. Particularly, we demonstrate CIPRNet services for critical infrastructure protection (CIP) stakeholders. The role of the proposed services is to support decisions in the CIP domain. Moreover, those services are expected to serve as the underpinnings for the European Infrastructures Simulation and ...
