Son, Dong-Oh ; Choi, Hong-Jun ; Kim, Jong-Myon ; Kim, Cheol-Hong ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 1~12
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.001
In multi-core processors, Last Level Cache(LLC) can reduce the speed gap between the memory and the core. For this reason, LLC has big impact on the performance of processors. LLC is composed of shared cache and private cache. In computer architecture community, most researchers have mainly focused on the management techniques for shared cache, while management techniques for private cache have not been widely researched. In conventional private LLC, memory is statically assigned to each core, resulting in serious performance degradation when the workloads are not fairly distributed. To overcome this problem, this paper proposes the replacement policy for managing private cache of LLC efficiently. As proposed core-aware cache replacement policy can reconfigure LLC dynamically, hit rate of LLC is increases drastically. Moreover, proposed policy uses 2-bit saturating counters to improve the performance. According to our simulation results, the proposed method can improve hit rates by 9.23% and reduce the access time by 12.85% compared to the conventional method.

Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 13~21
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.013
The goal of this paper is to provide performance improvement and stability for satellite data correction of some distortions due to cloud or radiance through distributed processing on cluster. To do this, we proposed and implemented SGE(Sun Grid Engine) based distributed processing methods using local storages and a status table. In the verification, the experiment result revealed that the proposed system on seven nodes improved the processing speed by 138.81% as compare to the existing system and provided good stability as well. This result showed that the proposed distributed processing work is more appropriate to process CPU bound jobs than I/O bound jobs. We expect that the proposed system will give scientists improved analysis performance in various fields and near-real time analysis services.
Pre-arrangement Based Task Scheduling Scheme for Reducing MapReduce Job Processing Time
Park, Jung Hyo ; Kim, Jun Sang ; Kim, Chang Hyeon ; Lee, Won Joo ; Jeon, Chang Ho ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 23~30
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.023
In this paper, we propose pre-arrangement based task scheduling scheme to reduce MapReduce job processing time. If a task and data to be processed do not locate in same node, the data should be transmitted to node where the task is allocated on. In that case, a job processing time increases owing to data transmission time. To avoid that case, we schedule tasks into two steps. In the first step, tasks are sorted in the order of high data locality. In the second step, tasks are exchanged to improve their data localities based on a location information of data. In performance evaluation, we compare the proposed method based Hadoop with a default Hadoop on a small Hadoop cluster in term of the job processing time and the number of tasks sorted to node without data to be processed by them. The result shows that the proposed method lowers job processing time by around 18%. Also, we confirm that the number of tasks allocated to node without data to be processed by them decreases by around 25%.
Supervised Rank Normalization for Support Vector Machines
Lee, Soojong ; Heo, Gyeongyong ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 31~38
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.031
Feature normalization as a pre-processing step has been widely used in classification problems to reduce the effect of different scale in each feature dimension and error as a result. Most of the existing methods, however, assume some distribution function on feature distribution. Even worse, existing methods do not use the labels of data points and, as a result, do not guarantee the optimality of the normalization results in classification. In this paper, proposed is a supervised rank normalization which combines rank normalization and a supervised learning technique. The proposed method does not assume any feature distribution like rank normalization and uses class labels of nearest neighbors in classification to reduce error. SVM, in particular, tries to draw a decision boundary in the middle of class overlapping zone, the reduction of data density in that area helps SVM to find a decision boundary reducing generalized error. All the things mentioned above can be verified through experimental results.

An efficient quality improvement scheme for magnified image by using simple convex surface and simple concave surface characteristics in image
Jung, Soo-Mok ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 59~68
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.059
In this paper, an effective scheme was proposed to estimate simple convex surface and simple concave surface which exist in image. This scheme is applied to input image to estimate simple convex surface or simple concave surface. When simple convex surface or simple concave surface exists, another proposed efficient interpolation scheme is used for the interpolated pixel to have the characteristics of simple convex surface or simple concave surface. The magnified image using the proposed schemes is more similar to the real image than the magnified image using the previous schemes. The PSNR values of the magnified images using the proposed schemes are greater than those of the magnified images using the previous interpolation schemes.
Touch Recognition based on SIFT Algorithm
Jung, Sung Hoon ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 69~75
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.069
This paper introduces a touch recognition method for touch screen systems based on the SIFT(Scale Invariant Feature Transform) algorithm for stable touch recognition under strong noises. This method provides strong robustness against the noises and makes it possible to effectively extract the various size of touches due to the SIFT algorithm. In order to verify our algorithm we simulate it on the Matlab with the channel data obtained from a real touch screen. It was found from the simulations that our method could stably recognize the touches without regard to the size and direction of the touches. But, our algorithm implemented on a real touch screen system does not support the realtime feature because the DoG(Difference of Gaussian) of the SIFT algorithm needs too many computations. We solved the problem using the DoM(Difference of Mean) which is a fast approximation method of DoG.
Fast Content-Aware Video Retargeting Algorithm
Park, Dae-Hyun ; Kim, Yoon ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 77~86
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.077
In this paper, we propose a fast video retargeting method which preserves the contents of a video and converts the image size. Since the conventional Seam Carving which is the well-known content-aware image retargeting technique uses the dynamic programming method, the repetitive update procedure of the accumulation energy is absolutely needed to obtain seam. The energy update procedure cannot avoid the processing time delay because of many operations by the image full-searching. By applying the proposed method, frames which have similar features in video are classified into a scene, and the first frame of a scene is resized by the modified Seam Carving where multiple seams are extracted from candidate seams to reduce the repetitive update procedure. After resizing the first frame of a scene, all continuous frames of the same scene are resized with reference to the seam information stored in the previous frame without the calculation of the accumulation energy. Therefore, although the fast processing is possible with reducing complexity and without analyzing all frames of scene, the quality of an image can be analogously maintained with an existing method. The experimental results show that the proposed method can preserve the contents of an image and can be practically applied to retarget the image on real time.
An Anti Collision Algorithm Using Efficient Separation in RFID system
Kim, Sung-Soo ; Yun, Tae-Jin ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 87~97
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.087
In the RFID system, multiple tags respond in the process of identifying multiple tags in the reader's interrogation zone, resulting in collisions. Tag collision occurs when two or more tags respond to one reader, so that the reader cannot identify any tags. These collisions make it hard for the reader to identify all tags within the interrogation zone and delays the identifying time. In some cases, the reader cannot identify any tags. The reader needs the anti-collision algorithm which can quickly identify all the tags in the interrogation zone. The proposed algorithm efficiently divides tag groups through an efficient separation to respond, preventing collisions. Moreover, the proposed algorithm identifies tags without checking all the bits in the tags. The prediction with efficient separation reduces the number of the requests from the reader.

In Instant message service, the server should process instant messages and request messages which include many presence resources for users. And it also precesses massive notification messages generating from the subscribed presence resources. In this paper a new architecture of instant message service with multiple servers which can distribute loads efficiently as the number of users increases has been suggested. It also provides various functions to users using extended call processing language. The user subscribes presence information and call processing language script which describes user's functions. The server processes instant messages, presence services and call processing language scripts. New extended presence information data structure has been suggested and new call processing language operation tags have been added. Therefore extendability of the system can be increased and various services which combine presence service and call processing can be provided in this system. Furthermore instant message processing module has been integrated in the server to decrease the amount of SIP(Session Initiation Protocol) messages, and it also improves system efficiency, The performance of our proposed system has been analysed by experiments.

Kim, Jeong-Su ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 107~113
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.107
Mobile mobility and data reliability should be guaranteed as well as amounts of data services are essential in the era of smart media. In order to improve the reliability of high-speed data, strong channel coding and modulation techniques are required. In this paper, the structure of Turbo TCM decoder, applying high-order modulation techniques and the DPSAM method which improves performances in time-selective fading channels in the case of burst errors are suggested through the optimal decoding method and iteration decoding so as to improve bandwidth efficiency in Turbo Codes with excellent encoding gain. The proposed method in comparison with the existing method is that 3dB is superior in case that BER is
and the number of iterations is 3. In addition, the function is improved at approximately 6dB in case that BER is
and the number of iterations is 7. The proposed method requires additional bandwidth; however, the bandwidth loss can be overcome through Turbo TCM technology on the additional bit rate from the bandwidth loss.
Lightweight Individual Encryption for Secure Multicast Dissemination over WSNs
Park, Taehyun ; Kim, Seung Young ; Kwon, Gu-In ;
Journal of the Korea Society of Computer and Information, volume 18, issue 11, 2013, Pages 115~124
DOI : 10.9708/jksci.2013.18.11.115
In this paper, we suggest a secure data dissemination by Lightweight Individual Encryption Multicast scheme over wireless sensor networks using the individual encryption method with Forward Error Correction instead of the group key encryption method. In wireless sensor networks, a sink node disseminates multicast data to the number of sensor nodes to update the up to date software such as network re-programming and here the group key encryption method is the general approach to provide a secure transmission. This group key encryption approach involves re-key management to provide a strong secure content distribution, however it is complicated to provide group key management services in wireless sensor networks due to limited resources of computing, storage, and communication. Although it is possible to control an individual node, the cost problem about individual encryption comes up and the individual encryption method is difficult to apply in multicast data transmission on wireless sensor networks. Therefore we only use 0.16% of individually encrypted packets to securely transmit data with the unicast to every node and the rest 99.84% non-encrypted encoded packets is transmitted with the multicast for network performance.
