    Association rule mining is an active data mining research area. However, most ARM algorithms cater to a centralized environment. In contrast to previous ARM algorithms, we have developed a distributed algorithm, called optimized distributed association mining, for geographically distributed data sets. ODAM generates support counts of candidate itemsets quicker than the other DARM algorithms and re... View full abstract»

    Among technopolitical idealists, the organizational structure guiding the Internet's development stands as one of the last collegial meritocracies. For almost two decades, the Internet Engineering Task Force's unofficial creed of "rough consensus and running code" has well served those who contribute to protocol development and the Internet at large. The most recent attempt at launching such a tec... View full abstract»

    The Pentagon's recent decision not to allow online voting in the upcoming US presidential election came as a blow to many e-voting proponents. Pentagon officials halted plans to roll out the Defense Department's Secure Electronic Registration and Voting Experiment during the upcoming general election after four prominent security researchers issued a report detailing the system's security vulnerab...

    The semantic Web aims to enrich the existing Web with a layer of machine-interpretable metadata so that a computer program can draw conclusions (that is, derive new information) predictably (that is, all programs that receive this information draw the same conclusions from it). The semantic Web has two motivators. The first is data integration, which is a significant bottleneck in many IT applicat... View full abstract»
