Holistic Runtime Scheduling for the Distributed Computing Landscape

Marcel Blöcher
A wide range of resource scheduling systems for the distributed computing landscape has been proposed in the past, covering the application and infrastructure levels.  ...  In contrast to application-level scheduling, infrastructure-level scheduling is about orchestrating resources and serving resource requests of various applications, aiming at high resource utilization.  ...  A high-level overview of the HIRE architecture is shown in Figure 7 .1. 7.6 ) and two dimensions for servers (CPU and memory).  ...

Realistic rendering and reconstruction of astronomical objects and an augmented reality application for astronomy [article]

Andrei Lintu, Universität Des Saarlandes, Universität Des Saarlandes
These days, there is an ever increasing need for realistic models, renderings and visualization of astronomical objects to be used in planetarium and as a tool in modern astrophysical research.  ...  We first present a method to render the color and shape of the solar disc in different climate conditions as well as for different height to temperature atmospheric profiles.  ...  Interactive Rendering Before visualization, the pre-computed scattering table is uploaded as a 2D floatingpoint texture to graphics memory.  ...

Neural Approaches to Conversational Information Retrieval [article]

Jianfeng Gao, Chenyan Xiong, Paul Bennett, Nick Craswell
However, audiences with other background, such as machine learning and human-computer interaction, will also find it an accessible introduction to CIR.  ...  As a result, we have witnessed a resurgent interest in developing modern CIR systems in both research communities and industry.  ...  That is, the design and development of such systems are primarily motivated to drive research advances in conversational AI.

94th Annual Meeting, Virginia Academy of Science, 2016: Proceedings

Virginia Academy Of Science
We used geometric morphometric techniques to explore and compare the shapes of dentaries and skulls in 4 species of tree squirrels: Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris), eastern gray squirrel (S. carolinensis  ...  We compared biomechanical properties of the dentaries for the 4 species, and used discriminant functions analysis to discriminate between the species in a jaw-function space.  ...  While the FFN performed better than the RBFN, both networks' predictions resulted in an improvement of the computational model's performance as three of the four measures of interest moved closer to those  ...
