    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, we implement the SIFT(Scale-Invariant Feature Transform) algorithm for feature point extraction using a many-core processor, and analyze the performance, area efficiency, and system area efficiency of the many-core processor. In addition, we demonstrate the potential of the proposed many-core processor by comparing the performance of the many-core processor with that of high-performance CPU and GPU(Graphics Processing Unit). Experimental results indicate that the accuracy result of the SIFT algorithm using the many-core processor was same as that of OpenCV. In addition, the many-core processor outperforms CPU and GPU in terms of execution time. Moreover, this paper proposed an optimal model of the SIFT algorithm on the many-core processor by analyzing energy efficiency and area efficiency for different octave sizes.

    Low-Power Cache Design by using Locality Buffer and Address Compression

    Jong Wook Kwak | 2013, 18(9) | pp.11~19 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Most modern computer systems employ cache systems in order to alleviate the access time gap between processor and memory system. The power dissipated by the cache systems becomes a significant part of the total power dissipated by whole microprocessor chip. Therefore, power reduction in the cache system becomes one of the important issues. Partial tag cache is the system for the least power consumption. The main power reduction for this method is due to the use of small partial tag matching, not full tag matching. In this paper, we first analyze the previous regular partial tag cache systems and propose a new address matching mechanism by using locality buffer and address compression. In simulation results, the proposed model shows 18% power reduction in average, still providing same performance level, compared to regular cache.

    Abstract PDF
    Classification result by comprehensive analysis of rhythm section and heartbeat unit makes a reliable diagnosis of heart disease possible. In this paper, based on feature-points of ECG signals,rhythm analysis for constant section and heartbeat unit is conducted using rule-based classification and SVM-based classification respectively. Rhythm types are classified using a rule base deduced from clinical materials for features of rhythm section in rule-based classification, and monotonic rhythm or major abnormality heartbeats are classified using multiple SVMs trained previously for features of heartbeat unit in SVM-based classification. Experimental results for the MIT-BIH arrhythmia database show classification ratios of 68.52% by rule-based method alone and 87.04% by fusion method of rule-based and SVM-based for 11 rhythm types. The proposed fusion method is improved by about 19% through misclassification improvement for monotonic and arrangement rhythms by SVM-based method

    The Method of Vanishing Point Estimation in Natural Environment using RANSAC

    원선희 , 주성일 , HYUNG IL CHOI | 2013, 18(9) | pp.53~62 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This paper proposes a method of automatically predicting the vanishing point for the purpose of detecting the road region from natural images. The proposed method stably detects the vanishing point in the road environment by analyzing the dominant orientation of the image and predicting the vanishing point to be at the position where the feature components of the image are concentrated. For this purpose, in the first stage, the image is partitioned into sub-blocks, an edge sample is selected randomly from within the sub-block, and RANSAC is applied for line fitting in order to analyze the dominant orientation of each sub-block. Once the dominant orientation has been detected for all blocks, we proceed to the second stage and randomly select line samples and apply RANSAC to perform the fitting of the intersection point, then measure the cost of the intersection model arising from each line and we predict the vanishing point to be located at the average point, based on the intersection point model with the highest cost. Lastly, quantitative and qualitative analyses are performed to verify the performance in various situations and prove the efficiency of the proposed algorithm for detecting the vanishing point.

    Analysis of Data Encryption Mechanisms for Searchable Encryption

    손정갑 , 양유진 , Heekuck Oh and 1 other persons | 2013, 18(9) | pp.79~89 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Recently, the need for outsourcing sensitive data has grown due to the wide spreading of cost-effective and flexible cloud service. However, there is a fundamental concern in using such service since users have to trust external servers. Therefore, searchable encryption can be a very valuable tool to meet the security requirements of data outsourcing. However, most of work on searchable encryption focus only on privacy preserving search function and relatively lacks research on encryption mechanism used to actually encrypt data. Without a suitable latter mechanism, searchable encryption cannot be deployed in real world cloud services. In this paper,we analyze previously used and possible data encryption mechanisms for multi-user searchable encryption system and discuss their pros and cons. Our results show that readily available tools such as broadcast encryption, attribute-based encryption, and proxy re-encryption do not provide suitable solutions. The main problem with existing tools is that they may require separate fully trusted servers and the difficulty in preventing collusion attacks between outsiders and semi-trusted servers.

    A Dominating Set Algorithm

    Sang-Un, Lee | 2013, 18(9) | pp.121~129 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    This paper proposes a linear-time algorithm that has been designed to obtain an accurate solution for Dominating Set (DS) problem, which is known to be NP-complete due to the deficiency of polynomial-time algorithms that successfully derive an accurate solution to it. The proposed algorithm does so by repeatedly assigning vertex ν with maximum degree △(G) among vertices adjacent to the vertex υ with minimum degree δ(G) to Minimum Independent DS (MIDS) as its element and removing all the incident edges until no edges remain in the graph. This algorithm finally transforms MIDS into Minimum DS (MDS) and again into Minimum Connected DS (MCDS)so as to obtain the accurate solution to all DS-related problems. When applied to ten different graphs, it has successfully obtained accurate solutions with linear time complexity O(n). It has therefore proven that Dominating Set problem is rather a P-problem.

    Detection of Character Emotional Type Based on Classification of Emotional Words at Story

    BAEK, Yeong Tae | 2013, 18(9) | pp.131~138 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In this paper, I propose and evaluate the method that classifies emotional type of characters with their emotional words. Emotional types are classified as three types such as positive, negative and neutral. They are selected by classification of emotional words that characters speak. I propose the method to extract emotional words based on WordNet, and to represent as emotional vector. WordNet is thesaurus of network structure connected by hypernym, hyponym, synonym, antonym,and so on. Emotion word is extracted by calculating its emotional distance to each emotional category. The number of emotional category is 30. Therefore, emotional vector has 30 levels. When all emotional vectors of some character are accumulated, her/his emotion of a movie can be represented as a emotional vector. Also, thirty emotional categories can be classified as three elements of positive, negative, and neutral. As a result, emotion of some character can be represented by values of three elements. The proposed method was evaluated for 12 characters of four movies. Result of evaluation showed the accuracy of 75%.

    A Study upon Online Measurement techniques of Corporate Reputation

    Seung-Hee Kim , Woo-Je Kim , Lee, Kwang Suk | 2013, 18(9) | pp.139~152 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    Although a series of studies shows the fact that a company's reputation could affect its sales rate and stock price, due to the increased use of SNS, the research related to the online measurement method for the corporate reputation has been relatively insufficient. This study explores a design for a method to quantify the corporate reputation value by reconstructing the discussions in literature review. Concretely, this study divides the corporate reputation value into the corporate identity information and the corporate awareness information, which includes the following five sub-categories: ① the quality of product and service; ② the employment environment; ③ the corporate vision; ④ the social responsibility; and ⑤ the business achievement. Additionally, for the corporate identity assessment, this study considers the following six factors:① Agreeableness (Goodness), ②Capability (Ability), ③Enterprise (Rise), ④Chic (Class), ⑤Ruthlessness (Authority), and ⑥Informality. Based on these categories and factors, this study develops a technique quantifying the corporate reputation value by selecting ‘word items’ for the reputation search, and after conducting a frequency analysis in a survey. Also, to verify the result, this study exemplifies the reputation of three SI companies in Korea which could be utilized by using the commercialized reputation service. This study firstly attempts the corporate reputation measurement by classifying the identity and the awareness (corporate image and communication) upon a company in detail and enables its real applicabilities by proposing a formula to measure the reputation scores which can be utilized by verified word items from a frequency analysis

    MIN JUNG LEE , Eu Yoon sun , Park Sangchan and 1 other persons | 2013, 18(9) | pp.165~175 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Though the number of food franchises has been increased these days, there has not been less success for food franchise than failure. One of the several failures is the distrust between franchisor and franchisee factors because the franchisee thought its franchisor does not make its accounts and operations transparent. In order to resolve it, the large business food franchise has used the ERP system, however, small business franchise has run a very simple information system, which is linked to POS system and consists of simple functions to insert or inquire the result of data on sales and order etc to identify the status of both franchisor and franchisee because of financial difficulties and manpower shortage. Thus, small business franchise needs the cost management between them with low cost for efficient business administration. In this study, we suggest the data reference model (DRM) which covers the cost management system and is able to be linked to any POS system. The DRM is a framework whose primary purpose is to enable information linking and reuse across the any POS-based information systems via the classification, structure, model, exchange and management of data.

    Visual Exploration based Approach for Extracting the Interesting Association Rules

    KIM JUNWOO , Kang, Hyun-Kyung | 2013, 18(9) | pp.177~187 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Association rule mining is a popular data mining technique with a wide range of application domains, and aims to extract the cause-and-effect relations between the discrete items included in transaction data. However, analysts sometimes have trouble in interpreting and using the plethora of association rules extracted from a large amount of data. To address this problem, this paper aims to propose a novel approach called HTM for extracting the interesting association rules from given transaction data. The HTM approach consists of three main steps, hierarchical clustering,table-view, and mosaic plot, and each step provides the analysts with appropriate visual representation. For illustration, we applied our approach for analyzing the mass health examination data, and the result of this experiment reveals that the HTM approach help the analysts to find the interesting association rules in more effective way.
