Since its emergence, cloud computing has continued to evolve thanks to its ability to present computing as consumable services paid by use, and the possibilities of resource scaling that it offers according to client’s needs. Models and appropriate schemes for resource scaling through consolidation service have been considerably investigated, mainly, at the infrastructure level to optimize costs and energy consumption. Consolidation efforts at the SaaS level remain very restrained mostly when proprietary software are in hand. In order to fill this gap and provide software licenses elastically regarding the economic and energy-aware considerations in the context of distributed cloud computing systems, this work deals with dynamic software consolidation in commercial cloud data centers 〖DS〗^3 C. Our solution is based on heuristic algorithms and allows reallocating software licenses at runtime by determining the optimal amount of resources required for their execution and freed unused machines. Simulation results showed the efficiency of our solution in terms of energy by 68.85% savings and costs by 80.01% savings. It allowed to free up to
75% physical machines and 76.5% virtual machines and proved its scalability in terms of average execution time while varying the number of software and the number of licenses alternately.
Middle size gas/diesel aero-derivative power generation engines are widely used on various industrial plants in the oil and gas industry. Bleed of Valve (BOV) system failure is one of the failure mechanisms of these engines. The BOV is part of the critical anti-surge system and this kind of failure is almost impossible to identify while the engine is in operation. If the engine operates with BOV system impaired, this leads to the high maintenance cost during overhaul, increased emission rate, fuel consumption and loss in the efficiency. This paper proposes the use of readily available sensor data in a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system in combination with a machine learning algorithm for early identification of BOV system failure. Different machine learning algorithms and dimensionality reduction techniques are evaluated on real world engine data. The experimental results show that Bleed of Valve systems failures could be effectively predicted from readily available sensor data.[...] Read more.
Nowadays, big data is directing the entire advanced world with its function and applications. Moreover, to make better decisions from the ever emerging big data belonging to the respective organizations, deep learning (DL) models are required. DL is also widely used in the sentiment classification tasks considering data from social networks. Furthermore, sentiment classification signifies the best way to analyze the big data and make decisions accordingly. Analyzing the sentiments from big data applications is quite challenging task and also requires more time for the execution process. Therefore, to analyze and classify big data emerging from social networks in a better way, DL models are utilized. DL techniques are being used among the researchers to get high end results. A novel Ant Colony-based Deep Belief Neural Network (AC-DBN) framework is proposed in this research. Drug review tweets are opted to perform sentiment classification by using the proposed framework in python environment. A model fitness function is initiated in the DL framework and is observed that it is attaining high accuracy with low computation time. Additionally, the obtained results attained from the proposed framework are validated with existing methods for evaluating the efficiency of the proposed AC-DBN approach.[...] Read more.
Language is the main means of communication used by human. In various situations, the same word can mean differently based on the usage of the word in a particular sentence which is challenging for a computer to understand as level of human. Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD), which aims to identify correct sense of a given ambiguity word, is a long-standing problem in natural language processing (NLP). As the major aim of WSD is to accurately understand the sense of a word in particular context, can be used for the correct labeling of words in natural language applications. In this paper, I propose a normalized statistical algorithm that performs the task of WSD for Afaan Oromo language despite morphological analysis The propose algorithm has the power to discriminate ambiguous word’s sense without windows size consideration, without predefined rule and without utilize annotated dataset for training which minimize a challenge of under resource languages. The proposed system tested on 249 sentences with precision, recall, and F-measure. The overall effectiveness of the system is 80.76% in F-measure, which implies that the proposed system is promising on Afaan Oromo that is one of under resource languages spoken in East Africa. The algorithm can be extended for semantic text similarity without modification or with a bit modification. Furthermore, the forwarded direction can improve the performance of the proposed algorithm.[...] Read more.
Rumor is an important form of social interaction. However, spreading harmful rumors can have a significant negative impact on social welfare. Therefore, it is important to examine rumor models. Rumors are often defined as unconfirmed details or descriptions of public things, events, or issues that are made and promoted through various tools. In this paper, the Ignorant-Lurker-Spreader-Hibernator-Removal (ILSHR) rumor spreading model has been developed by combining the ILSR and SIHR epidemic models. In addition to the characteristics of the lurker group of ILSR, this model also considers the characteristics of the hibernator group of the SIHR model. Due to the complexity of the complex network structure, the state transition function for each node is defined based on their degree to make the proposed model more efficient. Numerical simulations have been performed to compare the ILSHR rumor spreading model with other similar models on the Sina Weibo dataset. The results show more effective ILSHR performance with 95.83% accuracy than CSRT and SIR-IM models.[...] Read more.
