  • [2015-06-26] Creating an Immersive and Entertaining Game for Raising Internet Privacy Awareness 

    Suknot, April
    The continuous evolution in the pervasiveness and connectedness of technology is a subject of growing concern. Databases, smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearables are all united through a single global network—the Internet. ...
  • [2015-06-26] The Ant and the Trap: Evolution of Ant-Inspired Obstacle Avoidance in a Multi-Agent Robotic System 

    Stolleis, Karl
    Interest in swarm robotics, particularly those modeled on biological systems, has been increasing with each passing year. We created the iAnt robot as a platform to test how well an ant-inspired robotic swarm could collect ...
  • [2015-06-26] Dominion: A Game of Information Exploitation 

    Hobbs, Jacob
    FlipIt is an abstract cyber-security game published in 2012 to investigate optimal strategies for managing security resources in response to Advanced Persistent Threats. In this thesis, we place FlipIt within a more general ...
  • [2014-07-12] Design and Implementation of a Scala Compiler Backend Targeting the Low Level Virtual Machine 

    Reedy, Geoffrey
    The Scala programming language successfully blends object-oriented and functional programming. The current implementation of Scala is tied to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) which constrains the implementation and deployment ...
  • [2014-07-12] Meta Concepts: A Knowledge-Based Code Generation System 

    Moss, Nicholas
    People have an amazing ability to solve complex problems by performing a sequence of simpler operations (i.e: functions/procedures which take input variables and produce output variables). We are able to do so even when ...
  • [2014-07-12] Introducing Modularity into Complex Software Test Suite Frameworks 

    Frey, Lucille
    Large, complex programming projects are often constructed by developers at multiple institutions working with a variety of computer architectures and environments. For such projects a useful testing scheme must test all ...
  • [2013-09-03] Ontology-based annotation using naive Bayes and decision trees 

    Xu, Jiawei Jr
    The Cognitive Paradigm Ontology (CogPO) defines an ontological relationship between academic terms and experiments in the field of neuroscience. BrainMap (www.brainmap.org) is a database of literature describing these ...
  • [2013-07-11] Hopscotch: Robust Multi-agent Search 

    Miles, Edward C.
    The task of searching a space is critical to a wide range of diverse applications such as land mine clearing and planetary exploration. Because applications frequently require searching remote or hazardous locations, and ...
  • [2013-07-11] Front Rendering on the GPU 

    Jeffrey, Bowles
    The glyphs described in a font are usually rendered using software that runs on the CPU. This can be done very quickly and is a well understood process. These techniques work well when the glyph is rendered such that each ...
  • [2012-07-03] Applications of Voronoi partitions in particle therapy 

    Riofrio, Daniel
    Treating cancer using charged particles heavier than electrons is becoming more and more popular in modern cancer management due to its increased dose to the targeted tumors and improved sparing of surrounding normal tissues ...
  • [2012-02-01] Efficiently bootstrapping extreme scale software systems 

    Goehner, Joshua
    Many scientific fields and commercial industries need to solve computationally large problems. These problems can often be broken into smaller tasks, which can be executed in parallel, on large computer systems. In pursuit ...
  • [2011-08-30] Improving peer review with ACORN : Ant Colony Optimization algorithm for Reviewer's Network 

    Flynn, Mark
    Peer review, our current system for determining which papers to accept and which to reject by journals and conferences, has limitations that impair the quality of scientific communication. Under the current system, reviewers ...
  • [2011-02-08] Simulating the evolution of recruitment behavior in foraging Ants 

    Letendre, Kenneth
    Spatial heterogeneity in the distribution of food is an important determinant of species' optimal foraging strategies, and of the dynamics of populations and communities. In order to explore the interaction of food ...
  • [2010-09-09] Molecular simulations of dendritic molecules : a study of PAMAM and phenyl-acetylene dendrimers 

    Fleharty, Mark
    Dendrimers are branched molecules that often have chemical properties similar to proteins and other large organic molecules. Dendrimers presently have applications as reactive surfaces for catalysis, and as hosts for ...
  • [2010-09-09] Dynamic photon painting 

    Chen, Zhe
    Photon-based radiosurgery is widely used for treating local and regional tumors. The key to improving the quality of radiosurgery is to increase the dose falloff rate from high dose regions inside the tumor to low dose ...
  • [2010-06-25] Programmer feedback and dynamic analysis to enable optimization in Java applications: the D.U.P.O. framework 

    Mohr, David
    It is inherently difficult for static analyses to make precise decisions about dynamic features of modern object-oriented languages. This makes it more difficult to apply optimizations aggressively. This thesis introduces ...
  • [2010-02-09] Supervised manifold distance segmentation 

    Wang, Guanyu
    In this paper, I will propose a simple and robust method for image and volume data segmentation based on manifold distance metrics. In this approach, pixels in an image are not considered as points with color values arranged ...
  • [2010-02-09] Using ant colony optimization for routing in microprocesors 

    Arora, Tamanna
    Power consumption is an important constraint on VLSI systems. With the advancement in technology, it is now possible to pack a large range of functionalities into VLSI devices. Hence it is important to find out ways to ...
