Semantic Scholar Information is Unreliable and FALSE!

The website is spreading wrong info about many scholars, their papers and their citations. Just try my name: www.semanticscholar.org/search?q=farshid%20farhat&sort=relevance www.semanticscholar.org/author/Farshid-Farhat/2052042 It was better to supervise/verify the info before making public on the web, otherwise shut it down! I’m totally disappointed with SemanticScholar!  

Auction-based Resource Management in Computer Architecture

ABSTRACT Resource management systems rely on a centralized approach to manage applications running on each resource. The centralized resource management system is not efficient and scalable for large-scale servers as the number of applications running on shared resources is increasing dramatically and the centralized manager may not have enough information about applications’ need. This work […]

CAGE: Contention-Aware Game-theoretic modEl

Abstract Traditional resource management systems rely on a centralized approach to manage users running on each resource. The centralized resource management system is not scalable for large-scale servers as the number of users running on shared resources is increasing dramatically and the centralized manager may not have enough information about applications’ need. In this paper […]

Split AT&T Bill in a Shared Data Plan

Getting fair shares for a shared data plan is always disaster! Because it is not a simple +/- but also there are a lot of overheads included inside the charges such as tax and extras, and also AT&T doesn’t divide the data charge and overage among the lines but only one line! The attached EXCEL […]

Discovering Triangles in Portraits and Landscapes

ABSTRACT Incorporating the concept of triangles in photos is an effective composition method used by professional photographers for making pictures more interesting or dynamic. Information on the locations of the embedded triangles is valuable for comparing the composition of portrait photos, which can be further leveraged by a retrieval system or used by photographers. This […]
