Stand on the Shoulders of Giants

IEEE Computer

Recent advances in deep learning for image recognition have spawned numerous challenge-based learning competitions in which participants can use a low-cost GPU graphics card to accomplish goals that required expensive resources in the recent past. Students are encouraged to explore this exciting new field of research by entering these competitions. Scooter Willis, "Stand on the Shoulders of Giants", Computer, vol.


Softwarization of Internet of Things Infrastructure for Secure and Smart Healthcare

IEEE Computer

The authors propose an agile, softwarized infrastructure for the flexible, cost-effective, secure, and privacy-preserving deployment of Internet of Things systems for smart healthcare applications and services.


Networked Computer Vision: The Importance of a Holistic Simulator

IEEE Computer

WiSE-Mnet is a holistic simulator that abstracts the key functions of smart-camera networks and models the main operations to account for hardware capabilities, the complexities of visual data, and their associated high-data-rate communication.


Using Design Slam to Foster Lifelong Learning Solutions

IEEE Computer

An architecture firm used the hackathon model to design spaces that integrate lifelong learning with other aspects of our daily lives, such as working, playing, and socializing.


Web Application Security: Threats, Countermeasures, and Pitfalls

IEEE Computer

Penetration testing is a crucial defense against common web application security threats such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks. A proposed web vulnerability scanner automatically generates test data with combinative evasion techniques, significantly expanding test coverage and revealing more vulnerabilities.


Exploring Hardware Heterogeneity to Improve Pervasive Context Inferences

IEEE Computer

Context-aware inference apps have become pervasive as a result of the Internet of Things (IoT). However, most of these apps run continuously on a single device, resulting in limited sensor coverage and high energy consumption. Recent advances in IoT devices, specifically hardware heterogeneity, can be leveraged to improve the accuracy and energy efficiency of context inferences.


Standardizing Ethical Design for Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems

IEEE Computer

AI is here now, available to anyone with access to digital technology and the Internet. But its consequences for our social order aren't well understood. How can we guide the way technology impacts society?


A Successful Approach to the 2016 RobotX Challenge

IEEE Computer

Discover how the University of Florida's team prepared for the most difficult collegiate-level robotic competition.


Sentient Tools and the Future of Work

IEEE Computer

People work and collaborate differently, so believing that there can only be one type of AI is too limiting.


A Sentiment Analysis System to Improve Teaching and Learning

IEEE Computer

Natural language processing and machine learning can be applied to student feedback to help university administrators and teachers address problematic areas in teaching and learning. The proposed system analyzes student comments from both course surveys and online sources to identify sentiment polarity, the emotions expressed, and satisfaction versus dissatisfaction. A comparison with direct-assessment results demonstrates the system's reliability.
