  • Labasan, Stephanie (University of Oregon, 2019-04-30)
    Power consumption is widely regarded as one of the biggest challenges to reaching the next generation of high performance computing (HPC). On future supercomputers, power will be a limited resource. This constraint will ...
  • Zhang, Yehui (University of Oregon, 2019-04-30)
    In intensive care units, most patients are usually in critical conditions which require physicians to make immediate diagnosis and treatments. However, not every patient could get the best treatment because it highly related ...
  • Ebrahimi, Javid (University of Oregon, 2019-04-30)
    In the past few years, evaluating on adversarial examples has become a standard procedure to measure robustness of deep learning models. Literature on adversarial examples for neural nets has largely focused on image ...
  • Nachenahalli Bhuthegowda, Bharath Kumar (University of Oregon, 2019-01-11)
    Email spam has steadily grown and has become a major problem for users, email service providers, and many other organizations. Many adversarial methods have been proposed to combat spam and various studies have been made ...
  • Kale, Shravan (University of Oregon, 2019-01-11)
    This thesis introduces the problem of learning the representation and the classification of the perceived sense of movement, defined as dynamism in static visuals. To solve the said problem, we study the definition, degree, ...
  • Li, Shaomeng (University of Oregon, 2018-10-31)
    As HPC systems move towards exascale, the discrepancy between computational power and I/O transfer rate is only growing larger. Lossy in situ compression is a promising solution to address this gap, since it alleviates I/O ...
  • Rezayidemne, Seyedsaed (University of Oregon, 2018-10-31)
    Word-of-mouth (WOM) communication is a well studied phenomenon in the literature and content propagation in Online Social Networks (OSNs) is one of the forms of WOM mechanism that have been prevalent in recent years specially ...
  • Maurer, Luke (University of Oregon, 2018-10-31)
    Every compiler passes code through several stages, each a sort of mini- compiler of its own. Thus each stage may deal with the code in a different representation, which may have little to do with the source or target ...
  • Mathai, Manish (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    Previous studies on photo-realistic volume rendering have failed to optimize for performance with respect to the cache-hierarchy. With this thesis, we consider a tile-based approach for photo-realistic volume rendering, ...
  • Morrison, Garrett (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    Line integral convolution (LIC) is a powerful tool for visualizing vector fields by combining particle advection with image convolution. Practical usage of LIC is limited by its computational expense, requiring many ...
  • Sullivan, Zachary (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    Data types are a widely-used feature of functional programming languages that allow programmers to create abstractions and control branching computations. Instances of data types are introduced by applying one of a disjoint ...
  • Mostafavi, Seyed Hooman (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    Nowadays, most people use several websites on a daily basis for various purposes like social networking, shopping, reading news, etc. which shows the significance of these websites in our lives. Due to this phenomenon, ...
  • Bennett, Benjamin (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    In the last 10 years GPS technology has become widely available due to the proliferation of smart devices with GPS capability. GPS was introduced as a method to assist in location and navigation and is still the most common ...
  • Gupta, Shweta (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    The rapidly increasing capabilities and complexity of numerical software present a growing challenge to software development productivity. While many open source projects enable the community to share experiences, learn ...
  • Feng, Yebo (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    With the rapid development of online social networks (OSN), maintaining the security of social media ecosystems becomes dramatically important for public. Among all the security threats in OSN, malicious social bot is the ...
  • Ramesh, Srinivasan (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    The desire for high performance on scalable parallel systems is increasing the complexity and the need to tune MPI implementations. The MPI Tools Information Interface (MPI T) introduced in the MPI 3.0 standard ...
  • Williams, Brian (University of Oregon, 2018-09-06)
    It is estimated that over half of bicycle crashes are not reported. There are various reasons for this, such as no property damage or physical injuries sustained. In order to improve the likelihood that bicycle riders ...
  • Johnson-Freyd, Philip (University of Oregon, 2018-04-10)
    Programmers don't just have to write programs, they are have to reason about them. Programming languages aren't just tools for instructing computers what to do, they are tools for reasoning. And, it isn't just programmers ...
  • Casita, Roscoe (University of Oregon, 2018-04-10)
    This paper introduces the hypergraph transversal problem along with thefollowing iterative solutions: naive, branch and bound, and dynamic exponentialtime (NC-D). Odometers are introduced along with the functions that ...
  • Rooshenas, Amirmohammad (University of Oregon, 2017-09-27)
    Probabilistic graphical models have been successfully applied to a wide variety of fields such as computer vision, natural language processing, robotics, and many more. However, for large scale problems represented using ...
