Manolis Stamatogiannakis, Hasanat Kazmi, Hashim Sharif, Remco Vermeulen, Ashish Gehani, Herbert Bos, Paul Groth
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Each of these approaches offers different trade-offs in terms of the granularity of captured provenance, integration requirements, and runtime overhead.  ...  To fill this gap, we begin to explore these trade-offs for representative examples of these approaches for automatic provenance capture by means of evaluation and measurement.  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.  ...

Lucian Carata, Sherif Akoush, Nikilesh Balakrishnan, Thomas Bytheway, Ripduman Sohan, Margo Selter, Andy Hopper
2014 Communications of the ACM  
ASSESSING THE QUALITY or validity of a piece of data is not usually done in isolation.  ...  You typically examine the context in which the data appears and try to determine its original sources or review the process through which it was created.  ...  Overhead trade-offs. Generally speaking, there is a direct trade-off between capture granularity and provenance overhead.  ...

A Knowledge Representation and Data Provenance Model to Self-Tuning Database Systems

Ana Carolina Almeida, Sergio Lifschitz, Karin Breitman
2009 2009 33rd Annual IEEE Software Engineering Workshop  
Consequently, users may not trust some of the automatic tuning decisions.  ...  This model provides users with the rationale behind system decisions, adds semantics to the database self-tuning actions, and provides useful provenance information about the whole process.  ...  ., deliberating, reasoning, trade-off and decision-making in the design process of an artifact [5] .  ...

CloudTracker: Using Execution Provenance to Optimize the Cost of Cloud Use [chapter]

Geoffrey Douglas, Brian Drawert, Chandra Krintz, Rich Wolski
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Using the automated CLOUDTRACKER provenance and replay facilities, scientists can choose either to store the results of a simulation or to reproduce it on-demand -whichever is more cost efficient in terms  ...  In this work, we investigate tools that enable dollar cost optimization of scientific simulations using commercial clouds.  ...  Related Work Although we are unaware of any work that employs execution provenance tracking to enable automatic and non-intrusive job replay and analysis of cloud cost trade-offs, other researchers have  ...

Data model as agile basis for evolving calibration software [article]

Hugo Buddelmeijer, Gijs A. Verdoes Kleijn, Kieran Leschinski
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To support such trade-offs, more software needs to be developed in the early phases of the project: simulators, archives, prototype recipes and pipelines.  ...  In this process we have hit the limit of what can be achieved with a detailed software design that is primarily captured in pdf/word documents.  ...  design and to trade-off between challenging manufacturing specs on hardware versus extensive calibration procedures using the data. • Software design digestible for hardware team: the coupling between  ...

2017 Proceedings of the 29th International Conference on Scientific and Statistical Database Management - SSDBM '17  
Although these issues are most apparent in the social sciences where fairness is interpreted in terms of the distribution of resources across protected groups, management of bias in source data affects  ...  In this vision paper, we argue that FAT properties must be considered as database system issues, further upstream in the data science lifecycle: *  ...  Provenance annotations that are captured during the data acquisition and curation phase should be propagated automatically thorough data analysis.  ...

Fecundity compromises attractiveness when pigments are scarce

Judith Morales, Alberto Velando, Roxana Torres
2008 Behavioral Ecology  
Theory predicts that the trade-off between ornamentation and fecundity limits female attractiveness. However, there is little evidence on this theoretical trade-off and its proximate background.  ...  Results suggest that carotenoid availability may mediate the theoretical trade-off between ornamentation and fecundity.  ...  For instance, life-history theory predicts that increased investment in reproduction may trade off against self-maintenance (Stearns 1992) , whereas increased investment in sexual signaling may trade  ...

Practical whole-system provenance capture

Thomas Pasquier, Xueyuan Han, Mark Goldstein, Thomas Moyer, David Eyers, Margo Seltzer, Jean Bacon
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 Symposium on Cloud Computing - SoCC '17  
Data provenance describes how data came to be in its present form. It includes data sources and the transformations that have been applied to them.  ...  The provenance we capture is streamed and consumed by tenant-built auditor applications.  ...  This trade-off needs to be viewed in relation to the provenance application; we discuss a concrete example in § 7.3.  ...
