      Dunn, Nathan A. (2006-08)
      This thesis makes two major contributions: it introduces a novel method for analysis of artificial neural networks and provides new models of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans nervous system. The analysis method extracts ...
    • On P2P Networks and P2P-Based Content Discovery on the Internet 

      Memon, Ghulam (University of Oregon, 2014-06-17)
      The Internet has evolved into a medium centered around content: people watch videos on YouTube, share their pictures via Flickr, and use Facebook to keep in touch with their friends. Yet, the only globally deployed service ...
    • Ontology databases 

      Le Pendu, Paea Jean-Francois, 1974- (University of Oregon, 2010-03)
      On the one hand, ontologies provide a means of formally specifying complex descriptions and relationships about information in a way that is expressive yet amenable to automated processing and reasoning. When data are ...
    • Optimizing Secure Function Evaluation on Mobile Devices 

      Mood, Benjamin (University of Oregon, 2012)
      Secure function evaluation (SFE) on mobile devices, such as smartphones, allows for the creation of new privacy-preserving applications. Generating the circuits on smartphones which allow for executing customized functions, ...
    • Peer-to-peer streaming: Design and challenges 

      Magharei, Nazanin, 1979- (University of Oregon, 2010-12)
      Streaming multimedia content over the Internet is extremely popular mainly due to emerging applications such as IPTV, YouTube and e-learning. All these applications require simultaneous streaming of multimedia content from ...
    • Performance Analysis and Modeling of Parallel Applications in the Context of Architectural Rooflines 

      Shaila, Nashid (University of Oregon, 2016-10-27)
      Understanding the performance of applications on modern multi- and manycore platforms is a difficult task and involves complex measurement, analysis, and modeling. The Roofline model is used to assess an application's ...
    • Performance Modeling of In Situ Rendering 

      Larsen, Matthew (University of Oregon, 2017-05-01)
      With the push to exascale, in situ visualization and analysis will play an increasingly important role in high performance computing. Tightly coupling in situ visualization with simulations constrains resources for both, ...
    • Personalized Requirements Elicitation Using a Domain Model 

      Arab Yar Mohammadi, Mahshid (University of Oregon, 2012)
      My interest is in applying a domain model to help elicit personal requirements for the problem of community travel for people with cognitive impairments. The domain model I took advantage of is the ACT model, which is ...
    • A Personalized Virtual Environment as a Testbed for Assistive Technologies 

      Yao, Xiangkui (University of Oregon, 2011-12)
      The design of successful assistive technologies requires careful personalization for individual users, as well as rapid, low cost cycles for product development and testing. My research brings two modern software engineering ...
    • PRESTO: A Parallel Runtime Environment for Scalable Task-Oriented Computations 

      Ozog, David (University of Oregon, 2013-10-03)
      While the message-passing paradigm, seen in programming models such as MPI and UPC, has provided a solution for efficiently programming on distributed memory computer systems, this approach is not a panacea for the needs ...
    • Robust Large Margin Approaches for Machine Learning in Adversarial Settings 

      Torkamani, MohamadAli (University of Oregon, 2016-11-21)
      Machine learning algorithms are invented to learn from data and to use data to perform predictions and analyses. Many agencies are now using machine learning algorithms to present services and to perform tasks that used ...
    • Search-based Optimization for Compiler Machine-code Generation 

      Clauson, Aran (University of Oregon, 2013-10-10)
      Compilation encompasses many steps. Parsing turns the input program into a more manageable syntax tree. Verification ensures that the program makes some semblance of sense. Finally, code generation transforms the internal ...
    • A software framework for simulation-based scientific investigations 

      Salman, Adnan M., 1965- (University of Oregon, 2010-03)
      This thesis provides a design and development of a software architecture and programming framework that enables domain-oriented scientific investigations to be more easily developed and productively applied. The key research ...
    • Support for model coupling: An interface-based approach 

      Bulatewicz, Tom (2006-06)
      There is an increasing need in the scientific community for the comprehensive simulation of complex, dynamic, physical systems. Often such simulations are built through model coupling, that is, the merging of existing, ...
