  • Buettner, Michael (2013-02-25)
    RF-powered computers operate using energy they harvest from radio frequency (RF) signals. Compared to battery powered devices, they have the advantages of being small and long-lived as they do not need to carry an onboard ...
  • Archibald, James K (1987)
    Shared-memory multiprocessors offer increased computational power and the programmability of the shared-memory model. However, sharing memory between processors leads to contention which delays memory accesses. Adding a ...
  • Yeung, Ka Yee (2001)
    The invention of DNA microarrays allows us to study simultaneous variations of genes at the genome-wide scale. A typical gene expression data set consists of thousands or even tens of thousands of genes, and a few dozens ...
  • Wampler, Kevin (2013-04-17)
    While the animation of humans is a well established topic in computer graphics, the animation of animals remains far less explored. Part of this is because in contrast to the wealth of easily obtainable motion data for ...
  • Voelker, Geoffrey Michael, 1970- (2000)
    This dissertation extends cooperative caching systems in three new directions: (1) I study the performance tradeoffs of using load balancing techniques to reduce the contention of remote page requests at memory servers, ...
  • Fan, Sandra Benxin (2013-07-23)
    In an increasingly connected world, there are ever more opportunities for online collaboration. As the potential for more collaborators grows, so does the complexity of such communications. Problem solving, already a ...
  • Zongker, Douglas, 1976- (2003)
    In recent years the use of computer-generated slides to accompany live presentation has become increasingly common. There is a potential for using computer graphics to increase the effectiveness of this type of presentation. ...
  • Fowler, Robert Joseph (1985)
    A problem that must be solved in designing a large distributed computing system is ensuring that processors can "find" all of the "objects" that they have the right to access. To avoid the potential reliability problems ...
  • Chamberlain, Bradford L., 1970- (2001)
    Programming parallel computers is an extremely challenging task for expert computer programmers, let alone for scientists in other disciplines whose computations often drive the acquisition of such machines. This dissertation ...
  • Amershi, Saleema (2013-02-25)
    End-user interactive machine learning is a promising tool for enhancing human capabilities with data. Recent work has shown that we can create specific applications that employ end-user interactive machine learning. However, ...
  • Devietti, Joseph (2013-04-17)
    Nondeterminism is one of the main reasons that parallel programming is so difficult. Bugs can vanish when programs are rerun or run under a debugger, thwarting attempts at their removal. Stress-testing is a common practice ...
  • Tseng, Huei-Hun Elizabeth (2013-02-25)
    Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) are functional transcripts that do not code for proteins. Many of them play indispensible roles in the cell. For example, the ribosomal RNAs make up the ribosome that is the factory for making ...
  • RIngenburg, Michael (2014-04-30)
    Energy efficiency is a key concern in the design of modern computer systems. One promising approach to energy-efficient computation, <italic>approximate computing</italic>, trades off output precision for energy efficiency. ...
  • Grove, David Paul, 1970- (1998)
    This dissertation demonstrates that interprocedural analysis can be both practical and effective for sizeable object-oriented programs. Although frequent procedure calls and message sends are important structuring techniques ...
  • Zhang, Sai
    This dissertation presents five program analysis techniques for improving automated software testing and error diagnosis. Two techniques aim to help software developers build reliable software and three techniques assist ...
  • Goshi, Justin (2004)
    With the increasing power of computers and communication networks, interest has grown in a whole new class of multimedia applications such as media-on-demand, subscription services to live sporting events, and online ...
  • Rabinovich, Michael, 1955- (1994)
    Replication is a critical aspect of large-scale distributed systems. Without it, the size of a system is limited by factors such as the increased risk of component failures, the overloading of popular services, and access ...
  • Gupta, Sidhant
    Imagine an energy feedback system that displays not only your total power consumption, but also continuously shows real-time usage while breaking it down categorically by electrical appliances. In addition, such a system ...
  • Johnson, David (David B.), 1957- (1997)
    The World Wide Web is a rich source of material that could be used for educational purposes. Advantages of reusing these existing materials are avoiding the duplicated effort of creating new versions of material that is ...
  • Chang, Jessica (2013-11-14)
    The subject of this thesis concerns algorithmic aspects of energy-related trends in computation. Within recent years, the computationally heaviest jobs are executed over massive corpora residing at data centers, whose ...
