Decoding Ldpc Codes With Probabilistic Local Maximum Likelihood Bit Flipping, 2020 Utah State University
Decoding Ldpc Codes With Probabilistic Local Maximum Likelihood Bit Flipping, Rejoy Roy Mathews
All Graduate Theses and Dissertations
Communication channels are inherently noisy making error correction coding a major topic of research for modern communication systems. Error correction coding is the addition of redundancy to information transmitted over communication channels to enable detection and recovery of erroneous information. Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes are a class of error correcting codes that have been effective in maintaining reliability of information transmitted over communication channels. Multiple algorithms have been developed to benefit from the LDPC coding scheme to improve recovery of erroneous information. This work develops a matrix construction that stores the information error probability statistics for a communication channel. This ...
Case Study: Verifying The Safety Of An Autonomous Racing Car With A Neural Network Controller, 2020 University of Pennsylvania
Case Study: Verifying The Safety Of An Autonomous Racing Car With A Neural Network Controller, Radoslav Ivanov, Taylor J. Carpenter, James Weimer, Rajeev Alur, George Pappas, Insup Lee
Departmental Papers (CIS)
This paper describes a verification case study on an autonomous racing car with a neural network (NN) controller. Although several verification approaches have been recently proposed, they have only been evaluated on low-dimensional systems or systems with constrained environments. To explore the limits of existing approaches, we present a challenging benchmark in which the NN takes raw LiDAR measurements as input and outputs steering for the car. We train a dozen NNs using reinforcement learning (RL) and show that the state of the art in verification can handle systems with around 40 LiDAR rays. Furthermore, we perform real experiments to ...
Super Education For Supercomputers, 2020 Southwestern Oklahoma State University
Super Education For Supercomputers, Ezgi Gursel, Jeremy Evert
Supercomputing (1 OOX more powerful than a desktop) allows organizations to solve complex problems that are not easily studied in any other way (ex. Blue Waters to simulate the known universe since the beginning of time for the design of the James Webb telescope). Producing qualified individuals to take advantage of the growing number of supercomputing jobs is a constant struggle. This poster provides an overview of education in supercomputing, explains how training occurs, and describes some of the key players working to educate a taskforce to deal with these highly complex machines.

W-Gun: Whale Optimization For Energy And Delay-Centric Green Underwater Networks, 2020 Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram University of Science and Technology
W-Gun: Whale Optimization For Energy And Delay-Centric Green Underwater Networks, Rajkumar Singh Rathore, Houbing Song, Suman Sangwan, Sukriti Mazumdar, Omprakash Kaiwartya, Kabita Adhikari, Rupak Kharel
Underwater sensor networks (UWSNs) have witnessed significant R&D attention in both academia and industry due to their growing application domains, such as border security, freight via sea or river, natural petroleum production and the fishing industry. Considering the deep underwater-oriented access constraints, energy-centric communication for the lifetime maximization of tiny sensor nodes in UWSNs is one of the key research themes in this domain. Existing literature on green UWSNs are majorly adapted from the existing techniques in traditional wireless sensor network relying on geolocation and the quality of service-centric underwater relay node selection, without paying much attention to the ...
Calibrated Prediction With Covariate Shift Via Unsupervised Domain Adaptation, 2020 University of Pennsylvania
Calibrated Prediction With Covariate Shift Via Unsupervised Domain Adaptation, Sangdon Park, Osbert Bastani, James Weimer, Insup Lee
Departmental Papers (CIS)
Reliable uncertainty estimates are an important tool for helping autonomous agents or human decision makers understand and leverage predictive models. However, existing approaches to estimating uncertainty largely ignore the possibility of covariate shift—i.e., where the real-world data distribution may differ from the training distribution. As a consequence, existing algorithms can overestimate certainty, possibly yielding a false sense of confidence in the predictive model. We propose an algorithm for calibrating predictions that accounts for the possibility of covariate shift, given labeled examples from the training distribution and unlabeled examples from the real-world distribution. Our algorithm uses importance weighting to ...

A Mock Software Company: For Teaching Software Engineering (Cse 455) Course, 2020 California State University, San Bernardino
A Mock Software Company: For Teaching Software Engineering (Cse 455) Course, Arturo Concepcion
Q2S Enhancing Pedagogy
This is a novel way of teaching software engineering as an upper-division course for senior computer science students. Teach the class as a mock software company where students play a role in the “software company” such as project managers, assistant project managers, team leads, software engineers, software designers, UI designers, QA engineers, etc. Then to make a realistic work environment, solicit software projects from real clients, not toy software projects that the instructors think of. It has been proven, pedagogically, that project-based learning is one of the most effective way of teaching. There are no quizzes, no mid-terms, and no ...

Wireless Underground Communications In Sewer And Stormwater Overflow Monitoring: Radio Waves Through Soil And Asphalt Medium, Usman Raza, Abdul Salam
Storm drains and sanitary sewers are prone to backups and overflows due to extra amount wastewater entering the pipes. To prevent that, it is imperative to efficiently monitor the urban underground infrastructure. The combination of sensors system and wireless underground communication system can be used to realize urban underground IoT applications, e.g., storm water and wastewater overflow monitoring systems. The aim of this article is to establish a feasibility of the use of wireless underground communications techniques, and wave propagation through the subsurface soil and asphalt layers, in an underground pavement system for storm water and sewer overflow monitoring ...
Piecing Together Summon Over Alma Documentation, 2020 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Piecing Together Summon Over Alma Documentation, James M. Day
Ex Libris provides some useful documentation for “Alma-Summon Integration” but it is not complete. Most Alma documentation and online help pages assume you are using Primo. Sometimes the Alma configurations for Primo apply to Summon, but mostly they do not. The ELUNA Summon Product Working Group members using Summon over Alma started a project to identify existing documentation, consolidate it, and create supplemental documentation where necessary. We hope this will help Ex Libris provide better support for Summon over Alma.

Sharing Stress With A Robot: What Would A Robot Say?, 2020 University of Washington
Sharing Stress With A Robot: What Would A Robot Say?, Honson Y. Ling, Elin A. Bj?rling
With the prevalence of mental health problems today, designing human-robot interaction for mental health intervention is not only possible, but critical. The current experiment examined how three types of robot disclosure (emotional, technical, and by-proxy) affect robot perception and human disclosure behavior during a stress-sharing activity. Emotional robot disclosure resulted in the lowest robot perceived safety. Post-hoc analysis revealed that increased perceived stress predicted reduced human disclosure, user satisfaction, robot likability, and future robot use. Negative attitudes toward robots also predicted reduced intention for future robot use. This work informs on the possible design of robot disclosure, as well as ...
The Robot Privacy Paradox: Understanding How Privacy Concerns Shape Intentions To Use Social Robots, 2020 BI Norwegian Business School
The Robot Privacy Paradox: Understanding How Privacy Concerns Shape Intentions To Use Social Robots, Christoph Lutz, Aurelia Tamò-Larrieux
Conceptual research on robots and privacy has increased but we lack empirical evidence about the prevalence, antecedents, and outcomes of different privacy concerns about social robots. To fill this gap, we present a survey, testing a variety of antecedents from trust, technology adoption, and robotics scholarship. Respondents are most concerned about data protection on the manufacturer side, followed by social privacy concerns and physical concerns. Using structural equation modeling, we find a privacy paradox, where the perceived benefits of social robots override privacy concerns.
Building A Stronger Casa: Extending The Computers Are Social Actors Paradigm, 2020 Penn State University
Building A Stronger Casa: Extending The Computers Are Social Actors Paradigm, Andrew Gambino, Jesse Fox, Rabindra A. Ratan
The computers are social actors framework (CASA), derived from the media equation, explains how people communicate with media and machines demonstrating social potential. Many studies have challenged CASA, yet it has not been revised. We argue that CASA needs to be expanded because people have changed, technologies have changed, and the way people interact with technologies has changed. We discuss the implications of these changes and propose an extension of CASA. Whereas CASA suggests humans mindlessly apply human-human social scripts to interactions with media agents, we argue that humans may develop and apply human-media social scripts to these interactions. Our ...
