Medical Image Annotation and Curation Platform (MiACp)

Medical Image Annotation and Curation Platform Imaging has been used in medicine for decades, most notably in the areas of ophthalmology, dermatology, and radiology. In recent years high-resolution scanners have been developed and the field of digital pathology has emerged. The convergence of both high-quality image data, across medical domains,…

Edge-enabled Distributed Network Measurement

Abstract: In the area of network monitoring and measurement a number of good tools are already available. However, most mature tools do not account for changes in network management brought about through Software Defined Networking (SDN). New tools developed to address the SDN paradigm often lack both observation scope and…

An Edge-Focused Model for Distributed Streaming Data Applications

Abstract: This paper presents techniques for the description and management of distributed streaming data applications. The proposed solution provides an abstract description language and operational graph model for supporting collections of autonomous components functioning as distributed systems. Using our approach, applications supporting millions of devices can be easily modeled using…
