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 […]

Detecting Dominant Vanishing Points in Natural Scenes

Abstract: Linear perspective is widely used in landscape photography to create the impression of depth on a 2D photo. Automated understanding of linear perspective in landscape photography has several real-world applications, including aesthetics assessment, image retrieval, and on-site feedback for photo composition, yet adequate automated understanding has been elusive. We address this problem by detecting […]
