    Data stream management is concerned with managing large streams of data arriving from data communications or sensor networks. Interest in this area is increasing, and it will grow rapidly over the coming decade, driven by rapid growth in the pervasiveness and bandwidth of digital-communications networks and an impending explosion in sensor networks. This special issue provides a snapshot of ongoin... View full abstract»

    Relational query languages can effectively express continuous queries on data streams after modest extensions. However, implementing such queries efficiently in data stream management systems requires major changes in execution models and optimization techniques. In particular, finer-granularity execution models that are conducive to effective time-stamp management and response-time optimization m... View full abstract»

    Memory efficiency is important for processing high-volume data streams. Previous stream-aggregation methods can exhibit excessive memory overhead in the presence of skewed data distributions. Further, data skew is a common feature of massive data streams. The authors introduce the AdaptWID algorithm, which uses adaptive processing to cope with time-varying data skew. AdaptWID models the memory usa... View full abstract»

    Building applications on top of sensor data streams is challenging because sensor data is noisy. A model-based view can reduce noise by transforming raw sensor streams into streams of probabilistic state estimates, which smooth out errors and gaps. The authors propose a novel model-based view, the Markovian stream, to represent correlated probabilistic sequences. Applications interested in evaluat... View full abstract»

  • Classifying Data Streams with Skewed Class Distributions and Concept Drifts

    Classification is an important data analysis tool that uses a model built from historical data to predict class labels for new observations. More and more applications are featuring data streams, rather than finite stored data sets, which are a challenge for traditional classification algorithms. Concept drifts and skewed distributions, two common properties of data stream applications, make the t... View full abstract»

    Optimally assigning streaming tasks to network machines is a key factor that influences a large data-stream-processing system's performance. Although researchers have prototyped and investigated various algorithms for task placement in data stream management systems, taxonomies and surveys of such algorithms are currently unavailable. To tackle this knowledge gap, the authors identify a set of cor... View full abstract»

    Service-oriented architecture represents a promising approach to integrating data and software across different institutional and disciplinary sources, thus facilitating Web-scale collaboration while avoiding the need to convert different data and software to common formats. The US National Cancer Institute's Biomedical Information Grid program seeks to create both a service-oriented infrastructur... View full abstract»

    As modern data mining applications increase in complexity, so too do their demands for resources. Grid computing is one of several emerging networked computing paradigms promising to meet the requirements of heterogeneous, large-scale, and distributed data mining applications. Despite this promise, there are still too many issues to be resolved before grid technology is commonly applied to large-s... View full abstract»

    The third-generation partnership project (3GPP) specifies 3G-WLAN interworking that lets mobile stations (MSs) access 3G networks via WLAN-based packet data gateways (PDGs). The specification mandates that packets delivered between an MS and a PDG should be protected by IPsec. This article studies IPsec-based VoIP performance (in terms of throughput, packet loss rate, latency, and jitter) in the 3... View full abstract»

    Standards-development organizations (SDOs) comprise participants from large and small companies, academia, and the open source community. The participants come with varying backgrounds with regard to copyright and patents in the areas that are being standardized, and the SDOs must deal with these issues in ways that both satisfy the participants (and their employers) and result in useful standards...

    Telework could potentially offer significant savings on fuel, office space, and carbon emissions, improve productivity and morale and even reduce the outflow of US jobs overseas. Many companies have enthusiastically embraced it, but pitfalls loom. It appears that the public sector, especially the federal government, is behind on deploying telework opportunities. The challenges of setting up office... View full abstract»

    The ways in which people handle information about themselves on the Internet is changing from one where people are simply asked for information about themselves to one where the personal information is a fundamental part of the application or service they're using. This shift has led to changes in how privacy is viewed, one in which people are willing to give up information about themselves becaus... View full abstract»

    Sometimes, Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style proponents describe it as being easy, but this in no way implies that REST is trivial or simplistic, nor does it mean that RESTful systems lack sophistication. REST's relative simplicity comes from the fact that it not only clearly defines its trade-offs and constraints but also distinctly separates concerns, such as resource id... View full abstract»
