    강성모 , Jong Myon Kim | 2013, 18(8) | pp.1~8 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This paper proposes an effective parallel implementation of a physical modeling synthesis of guitar on the GPU environment. We used appropriate filter coefficients and adjusted the length of delay line for each open string to generate 44,100 six-polyphonic guitar sounds (E2, A2, D3, G4,B3, E4) by using physical modeling synthesis. In addition, we analyzed the physical modeling synthesis algorithm and observed that we can exploit parallelism inherent in the length of delay line. Thus, we assigned CUDA cores as many as the length of delay line and effectively implemented the physical modeling synthesis using GPU to achieve the highest performance. Experimental results indicated that synthetic guitar sounds using GPU were very similar to the original sounds when we compared their spectra. In addition, GPU achieved 68x and 3x better performance than high-performance TI DSP and CPU, respectively. Furthermore, this paper implemented and evaluated the performance of multi-GPU systems for the physical modeling algorithm.

    A Job Scheduling Scheme based on Analytic Hierarchy Process in Cloud Computing

    Kim Jeong-won | 2013, 18(8) | pp.9~15 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    As the resources of cloud computing are essentially heterogeneous and jobs have various characteristics, resource allocation to jobs is one of important problems. We define this issue as a multi-criteria decision-making problem. This paper proposes a priority-based job scheduling algorithm based on analytic hierarchy process (AHP). On the first step, jobs are classified based on their preferences. On the second step, response time, system utilization, and load becomes decision criteria based on the AHP algorithm. Jobs are allocated to adequate resources through their priorities that are calculated by the AHP algorithm. Through analysis and experiment of the proposed algorithm, we are to confirm that the scheme can schedule jobs as well as utilize its resource efficiently.

    Design and Implementation of an Automatic Scoring Model Using a Voting Method for Descriptive Answers

    허정만 , So-Young Park | 2013, 18(8) | pp.17~25 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    TIn this paper, we propose a model automatically scoring a student's answer for a descriptive problem by using a voting method. Considering the model construction cost, the proposed model does not separately construct the automatic scoring model per problem type. In order to utilize features useful for automatically scoring the descriptive answers, the proposed model extracts feature values from the results, generated by comparing the student's answer with the answer sheet. For the purpose of improving the precision of the scoring result, the proposed model collects the scoring results classified by a few machine learning based classifiers, and unanimously selects the scoring result as the final result. Experimental results show that the single machine learning based classifier C4.5 takes 83.00% on precision while the proposed model improve the precision up to 90.57% by using three machine learning based classifiers C4.5, ME, and SVM.

    Quantization of Lumbar Muscle using FCM Algorithm

    Kim, Kwang-baek | 2013, 18(8) | pp.27~31 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, we propose a new quantization method using fuzzy C-means clustering(FCM) for lumbar ultrasound image recognition. Unlike usual histogram based quantization, our method first classifies regions into 10 clusters and sorts them by the central value of each cluster. Those clusters are represented with different colors. This method is efficient to handle lumbar ultrasound image since in this part of human body, the brightness values are distributed to doubly skewed histogram in general thus the usual histogram based quantization is not strong to extract different areas. Experiment conducted with 15 real lumbar images verified the efficacy of proposed method.

    주성일 , 원선희 , HYUNG IL CHOI | 2013, 18(8) | pp.65~75 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    This paper proposes a method of tracking the hand region and detecting the fingertip using only depth images. In order to eliminate the influence of lighting conditions and obtain information quickly and stably, this paper proposes a tracking method that relies only on depth information, as well as a method of using region growing to identify errors that can occur during the tracking process and a method of detecting the fingertip that can be applied for the recognition of various gestures. First, the closest point of approach is identified through the process of transferring the center point in order to locate the tracking point, and the region is grown from that point to detect the hand region and boundary line. Next, the ratio of the invalid boundary, obtained by means of region growing, is used to calculate the validity of the tracking region and thereby judge whether the tracking is normal. If tracking is normal, the contour line is extracted from the detected hand region and the curvature and RANSAC and Convex-Hull are used to detect the fingertip . Lastly,quantitative and qualitative analyses are performed to verify the performance in various situations and prove the efficiency of the proposed algorithm for tracking and detecting the fingertip

    Modified Baby-Step Giant-Step Algorithm for Discrete Logarithm

    Sang-Un, Lee | 2013, 18(8) | pp.87~93 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    A baby-step giant-step algorithm divides  by blocks that possess ⌈ ⌉ elements,and subsequently computes and stores modfor elements in the 1st block. It then calculates mod for  blocks and identifies each of them with those in the 1st block of an identical elemental value. This paper firstly proposes a modified baby-step giant-step algorithm that divides⌈ ⌉blocks with elements applying ≡ mod and mod ≡ mod principles. This results in a 50% decrease in the process of the giant-step. It then suggests a reverse baby-step giant step algorithm that performs and saves⌈ ⌉blocks firstly and computesmod for elements. The proposed algorithm is found to successfully halve the memory and search time of the baby-step giant step algorithm

    Abstract PDF
    DDoS attacks have became as a social threat since 2009 7.7 DDoS turmoil. Even though defence techniques have been developing to provide against those threats, they become much more sophisticate. In recent years, the attack form of DDoS is changing from high amount of traffic attack of network layers to highly sophisticate small amount of application layers. To make matters worse, attack agent for the attack has became very intelligent so that it is difficult to be blocked since it can’t be distinguished from normal PCs. In the user authentication system(such as CAPTCHA) User intervention is required to distinguish normal PCs and intelligent attack agents and in particular, in a NAT environment, IP-based blocking method can be cut off the normal users traffic at the same time. This research examined defense techniques which are able to distinguish between agent and normal PC and effectively block ways the HTTP DDoS offense applying one-time session key based authentication method using Cookie which is used in HTTP protocol to protect web sever from sophisticate application layer of DDoS.

    조장우 , 정환철 | 2013, 18(8) | pp.105~111 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This paper presents a virtual sensor system that is an effective method to test application software of smart sensors. The common way of testing sensor application is to build a test board,connect sensors to the board, and test sensor applications on the board with sensor's measurements as inputs. The problem of testing sensor application software with sensor's measurements as inputs is the restriction of test data. In other words, software testers cannot manipulate test data, because test data is generated by sensors. To solve this problem a virtual sensor system is presented in this paper. The virtual sensor system enables software testers to manipulate measurements of sensors. In the virtual sensor system, generation of virtual sensors comprises three stages - sensor selection, sensor characterization, and determination of output patterns. Sensor's measurements that can be manipulated through the virtual sensor system make the process of testing efficient. To show the usefulness of our virtual sensor system, it is applied to sensor applications in Android platform and the result of experiments is shown
