P a g e | iMapReduce based RDF Assisted Distributed SVM for High Throughput Spam Filtering
- High Throughput Spam; Godwin Caruana
Electronic mail has become cast and embedded in our everyday lives. Billions of legitimate emails are sent on a daily basis. The widely established underlying infrastructure, its widespread availability as well as its ease of use have all acted as catalysts to such pervasive proliferation. Unfortunately, the same can be alleged about unsolicited bulk email, or rather spam. Various methods, as well as enabling architectures are available to try to mitigate spam permeation. In this respect, this dissertation compliments existing survey work in this area by contributing an extensive literature review of traditional and emerging spam filtering approaches. Techniques, approaches...

The financial and environmental costs associated with the manufacture and consumption of products may be reduced through design for efficient production, service life extension and post-consumer value recovery. In response to today’s need to design with consideration for the whole product life cycle, British Standards Institution (BSI) published BS 8887-1 (2006) Design for Manufacture, Assembly, Disassembly and End-of-life processing (MADE). Original research into the distribution and use of this first part of the MADE series is reported in this thesis. The organizations that accessed BS 8887-1 were categorised using their Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code. The results are presented graphically...
A Novel Genetic Algorithm for Evolvable Hardware
- Emanuele Stomeo; Member Ieee; Tatiana Kalganova; Cyrille Lambert
Abstract—Evolutionary algorithms are used for solving search and optimization problems. A new field in which they are also applied is evolvable hardware, which refers to a self-configurable electronic system. However, evolvable hardware is not widely recognized as a tool for solving real-world applications, because of the scalability problem, which limits the size of the system that may be evolved. In this paper a new genetic algorithm, particularly designed for evolving logic circuits, is presented and tested for its scalability. The proposed algorithm designs and optimizes logic circuits based on a Programmable Logic Array (PLA) structure. Furthermore it allows the evolution...

Wearable computing devices worn on the body provide the potential for digital interaction in the world. A new stage of computing technology at the beginning of the 21st Century links the personal and the pervasive through mobile wearables. The convergence between the miniaturisation of microchips (nanotechnology), intelligent textile or interfacial materials production, advances in biotechnology and the growth of wireless, ubiquitous computing emphasizes not only mobility but integration into clothing or the human body. In artistic contexts one expects such integrated wearable devices to have the two-way function of interface instruments (e.g. sensor data acquisition and exchange) worn for particular...
Secrets of Sex and Innocence in Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure: A Profile of Purity Using Three Common Philosophies
- Rance D. Denton
Well before the innovations of electronic mail and text messaging, people communicated over long distances using the power of paper and ink. To fulfill the natural urge for human interconnection, letter-writing empowered people with a personal mode of expression that gradually grew into an art-form. The epistolary mode gave people an outlet by which to express their views on the “religious…and social customs that formed the framework for individual lives. ” 1 Novels written in the epistolary format mimic private correspondence, allowing the reader to be audience to stories that do not often adhere to proper social expectations. Epistolary novels...

Electronic and Computer Engineering Personal Mobile Grids with a Honeybee Inspired Resource Scheduler
- Heba Abdullataif Kurdi
The overall aim of the thesis has been to introduce Personal Mobile Grids (PM-Grids) as a novel paradigm in grid computing that scales grid infrastructures to mobile devices and extends grid entities to individual personal users. In this thesis, architectural designs as well as simulation models for PM-Grids are developed. The core of any grid system is its resource scheduler. However, virtually all current conventional grid schedulers do not address the non-clairvoyant scheduling problem, where job information is not available before the end of execution. Therefore, this thesis proposes a honeybee inspired resource scheduling heuristic for PM-Grids (HoPe) incorporating a...

Factors Affecting E-government Adoption in the State of Qatar
- Shafi Al-shafi; Vishanth Weerakkody
Electronic government (e-government) initiatives are in their early stages in many developing countries and faced with various issues pertaining to their implementation, adoption and diffusion. Although e-government has increased transparency and improved communication and access to information for citizens, digital diffusion of information is often achieved at high cost to government agencies. Conversely, citizens ’ adoption of e-government services has been less than satisfactory in most countries. While studies by researchers continue to outline the most salient adoption constructs, as well as various frameworks and models for understanding adoption, research by independent consultancy/research organisations has produced a host of statistics...

Croll: Strengthening Legal Compliance For Privacy
- Vicky Liu; William Caelli; Lauren May
It is well recognised that adoption of information communication and technology (ICT) in healthcare can transform healthcare services. Numerous countries are seeking to establish national e-health development and implementation. To collect, store and process individual health information in an electronic system, healthcare providers need to comply with the appropriate security and privacy legislation. Deploying ICT systems in healthcare operations can provide advantages in healthcare delivery; however, risks to privacy in such e-health systems must be addressed. Adopting appropriate security technologies can simplify some of the complexity associated with privacy concerns. Evaluation criteria can be useful in providing a benchmark for...
Can e-Government Systems Bridge the Digital Divide?
- Elias Pimenidis; Lazaros S. Iliadis; Christos K. Georgiadis
Abstract: Electronic Government systems are often seen as panacea in the remedy of all failings of governance. With a history span of almost two decades, e-government implementations have often reached dead ends and have regularly failed to deliver the promise that the governments that have initiated them have made to their citizens. Despite an abundance of development models and best case scenarios identified in literature, e-government services are continually failing to attract the citizens and to capture their trust and faith. The main reason quoted for such failures is the lack of innovation and inclusivity in the way a service...
