TaintDroid: An InformationFlow Tracking System for Realtime Privacy Monitoring on Smartphones
, 2010
"... Today’s smartphone operating systems fail to provide users with adequate control and visibility into how thirdparty applications use their private data. We present TaintDroid, an efficient, systemwide dynamic taint tracking and analysis system for the popular Android platform that can simultaneous ..."

Bigtable: A distributed storage system for structured data
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE 7TH CONFERENCE ON USENIX SYMPOSIUM ON OPERATING SYSTEMS DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION  VOLUME 7
, 2006
"... Bigtable is a distributed storage system for managing structured data that is designed to scale to a very large size: petabytes of data across thousands of commodity servers. Many projects at Google store data in Bigtable, including web indexing, Google Earth, and Google Finance. These applications ..."

The Economics of Inequality
, 1975
"... Measures of inequality are used by economists to answer a wide range of questions. Is the distribution of income more equal than it was in the past? Are underdeveloped countries characterised by greater inequality than advanced countries? Do taxes lead to greater equality in the distri ..."

Estimating the Support of a HighDimensional Distribution
, 1999
"... Suppose you are given some dataset drawn from an underlying probability distribution P and you want to estimate a "simple" subset S of input space such that the probability that a test point drawn from P lies outside of S is bounded by some a priori specified between 0 and 1. We propo ..."

Suppose you are given some dataset drawn from an underlying probability distribution P and you want to estimate a "simple" subset S of input space such that the probability that a test point drawn from P lies outside of S is bounded by some a priori specified between 0 and 1. We propose a method to approach this problem by trying to estimate a function f which is positive on S and negative on the complement. The functional form of f is given by a kernel expansion in terms of a potentially small subset of the training data; it is regularized by controlling the length of the weight vector in an associated feature space. The expansion coefficients are found by solving a quadratic programming problem, which we do by carrying out sequential optimization over pairs of input patterns. We also provide a preliminary theoretical analysis of the statistical performance of our algorithm. The algorithm is a natural extension of the support vector algorithm to the case of unlabelled d...
A simple parallel algorithm for the maximal independent set problem
 SIAM Journal on Computing
, 1986
"... Simple parallel algorithms for the maximal independent set (MIS) problem are presented. The first algorithm is a Monte Carlo algorithm with a very local property. The local property of this algorithm may make it a useful protocol design tool in distributed computing environments and artificial intel ..."

Theory for the development of neuron selectivity: orientation specificity and binocular interaction in visual cortex
 J. Neurosci
, 1982
"... The development of stimulus selectivity in the primary sensory cortex of higher vertebrates is considered in a general mathematical framework. A synaptic evolution scheme of a new kind is proposed in which incoming patterns rather than converging afferents compete. The change in the efficacy of a gi ..."

On The Limits of Steganography
 IEEE Journal of Selected Areas in Communications
, 1998
"... In this paper, we clarify what steganography is and what it can do. We contrast it with the related disciplines of cryptography and tra#c security, present a unified terminology agreed at the first international workshop on the subject, and outline a number of approachesmany of them developed to ..."

PickandDrop: A Direct Manipulation Technique for Multiple Computer Environments
"... This paper proposes a new field of user interfaces called multicomputer direct manipulation and presents a penbased direct manipulation technique that can be used for data transfer between different computers as well as within the same computer. The proposed PickandDrop allows a user to pick up ..."
