Towards Optimal Secure Distributed Storage Systems with Exact Repair
Distributed storage systems in the presence of a wiretapper are considered. A distributed storage system (DSS) is parameterized by three parameters (𝑛, 𝑘, 𝑑), in which a file stored across n distributed nodes, can be ...
A Modest Proposal for Open Market Risk Assessment to Solve the Cyber-Security Problem
(Virginia Tech, 2016-04-29)
We introduce a model for a market based economic system of cyber-risk valuation to correct fundamental problems of incentives within the information technology and information processing industries. We assess the makeup ...
Radiation Search Operations using Scene Understanding with Autonomous UAV and UGV
(Virginia Tech, 2016-08-31)
Autonomously searching for hazardous radiation sources requires the ability of the aerial and ground systems to understand the scene they are scouting. In this paper, we present systems, algorithms, and experiments to ...
Environmental Information Improves Robotic Search Performance
(Virginia Tech, 2016)
We address the problem where a mobile search agent seeks to find an unknown number of stationary objects distributed in a bounded search domain, and the search mission is subject to time/distance constraint. Our work ...
Predicting Complications in Critical Care Using Heterogeneous Clinical Data
Patients in hospitals, particularly in critical care, are susceptible to many complications affecting morbidity and mortality. Digitized clinical data in electronic medical records can be effectively used to develop machine ...
