Advanced web services by Athman Bouguettaya( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Web services and Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) have become thriving areas of academic research, joint university/industry research projects, and novel IT products on the market. SOC is the computing paradigm that uses Web services as building blocks for the engineering of composite, distributed applications out of the reusable application logic encapsulated by Web services. Web services could be considered the best-known and most standardized technology in use today for distributed computing over the Internet. This book is the second installment of a two-book collection covering the state-of-the-art of both theoretical and practical aspects of Web services and SOC research and deployments. Advanced Web Services specifically focuses on advanced topics of Web services and SOC and covers topics including Web services transactions, security and trust, Web service management, real-world case studies, and novel perspectives and future directions. The editors present foundational topics in the first book of the collection, Web Services Foundations (Springer, 2013). Together, both books comprise approximately 1400 pages and are the result of an enormous community effort that involved more than 100 authors, comprising the world’s leading experts in this field

Trust management in cloud services by Talal H Noor( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the design and implementation of Cloud Armor, a novel approach for credibility-based trust management and automatic discovery of cloud services in distributed and highly dynamic environments. This book also helps cloud users to understand the difficulties of establishing trust in cloud computing and the best criteria for selecting a service cloud. The techniques have been validated by a prototype system implementation and experimental studies using a collection of real world trust feedbacks on cloud services. The authors present the design and implementation of a novel protocol that preserves the consumers' privacy, an adaptive and robust credibility model, a scalable availability model that relies on a decentralized architecture, and a cloud service crawler engine for automatic cloud services discovery. This book also analyzes results from a performance study on a number of open research issues for trust management in cloud environments including distribution of providers, geographic location and languages. These open research issues illustrate both an overview of the current state of cloud computing and potential future directions for the field. Trust Management in Cloud Services contains both theoretical and applied computing research, making it an ideal reference or secondary text book to both academic and industry professionals interested in cloud services. Advanced-level students in computer science and electrical engineering will also find the content valuable

Enabling context-aware web services : methods, architectures, and technologies( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With recent advances in radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, sensor networks, and enhanced Web services, the original World Wide Web is continuing its evolution into what is being called the Web of Things and Services. Such a Web will support an ultimately interactive environment where everyday physical objects such as buildings, sidewalks, and commodities become recognizable, addressable, and even controllable via a mostly ubiquitous Web. This integration of the physical and virtual worlds will fundamentally impact the way we live and in doing so afford tremendous new business opportunities with great human benefit, such as support services to keep the elderly independent, and intelligent traffic management that will cut wasted hours from every day. More efficient supply chains, improved environmental monitoring, better access to health services... the list is endless." "Enabling Context-Aware Web Services: Methods, Architectures, and Technologies compiles the newest developments and advances driving this new age forward. With contributions from leading researchers across the world this pioneering work bridges the gap between context awareness and Web services. A comprehensive presentation of what's already accomplished and what is possible." "Researchers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and educators across any number of fields will find new ideas worth considering, jumping-off points for developing improved software and applications, and seeds for business ventures that efficiently deliver needed products, information, or services. The possibilities are as limitless as we dare to imagine."--BOOK JACKET
Managing Data From Knowledge Bases: Querying and Extraction by Wei Emma Zhang( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the authors first address the research issues by providing a motivating scenario, followed by the exploration of the principles and techniques of the challenging topics. Then they solve the raised research issues by developing a series of methodologies. More specifically, the authors study the query optimization and tackle the query performance prediction for knowledge retrieval. They also handle unstructured data processing, data clustering for knowledge extraction. To optimize the queries issued through interfaces against knowledge bases, the authors propose a cache-based optimization layer between consumers and the querying interface to facilitate the querying and solve the latency issue. The cache depends on a novel learning method that considers the querying patterns from individual’s historical queries without having knowledge of the backing systems of the knowledge base. To predict the query performance for appropriate query scheduling, the authors examine the queries’ structural and syntactical features and apply multiple widely adopted prediction models. Their feature modelling approach eschews the knowledge requirement on both the querying languages and system. To extract knowledge from unstructured Web sources, the authors examine two kinds of Web sources containing unstructured data: the source code from Web repositories and the posts in programming question-answering communities. They use natural language processing techniques to pre-process the source codes and obtain the natural language elements. Then they apply traditional knowledge extraction techniques to extract knowledge. For the data from programming question-answering communities, the authors make the attempt towards building programming knowledge base by starting with paraphrase identification problems and develop novel features to accurately identify duplicate posts. For domain specific knowledge extraction, the authors propose to use clustering technique to separate knowledge into different groups. They focus on developing a new clustering algorithm that uses manifold constraint in the optimization task and achieves fast and accurate performance. For each model and approach presented in this dissertation, the authors have conducted extensive experiments to evaluate it using either public dataset or synthetic data they generated
