    A Deep Learning Approach for Landmines Detection Based on Airborne Magnetometry Imaging and Edge Computing

    Ahmed Barnawi1,*, Krishan Kumar2, Neeraj Kumar1, Bander Alzahrani1, Amal Almansour1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.2, pp. 2117-2137, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.044184

    Abstract Landmines continue to pose an ongoing threat in various regions around the world, with countless buried landmines affecting numerous human lives. The detonation of these landmines results in thousands of casualties reported worldwide annually. Therefore, there is a pressing need to employ diverse landmine detection techniques for their removal. One effective approach for landmine detection is UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) based Airborne Magnetometry, which identifies magnetic anomalies in the local terrestrial magnetic field. It can generate a contour plot or heat map that visually represents the magnetic field strength. Despite the effectiveness of this approach, landmine removal remains a challenging… More >

    A Novel Predictive Model for Edge Computing Resource Scheduling Based on Deep Neural Network

    Ming Gao1,#, Weiwei Cai1,#, Yizhang Jiang1, Wenjun Hu3, Jian Yao2, Pengjiang Qian1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.1, pp. 259-277, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029015

    Abstract Currently, applications accessing remote computing resources through cloud data centers is the main mode of operation, but this mode of operation greatly increases communication latency and reduces overall quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE). Edge computing technology extends cloud service functionality to the edge of the mobile network, closer to the task execution end, and can effectively mitigate the communication latency problem. However, the massive and heterogeneous nature of servers in edge computing systems brings new challenges to task scheduling and resource management, and the booming development of artificial neural networks provides us with more powerful methods… More >

    Real-Time Prediction Algorithm for Intelligent Edge Networks with Federated Learning-Based Modeling

    Seungwoo Kang1, Seyha Ros1, Inseok Song1, Prohim Tam1, Sa Math2, Seokhoon Kim1,3,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.2, pp. 1967-1983, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.045020

    Abstract Intelligent healthcare networks represent a significant component in digital applications, where the requirements hold within quality-of-service (QoS) reliability and safeguarding privacy. This paper addresses these requirements through the integration of enabler paradigms, including federated learning (FL), cloud/edge computing, software-defined/virtualized networking infrastructure, and converged prediction algorithms. The study focuses on achieving reliability and efficiency in real-time prediction models, which depend on the interaction flows and network topology. In response to these challenges, we introduce a modified version of federated logistic regression (FLR) that takes into account convergence latencies and the accuracy of the final FL model within healthcare networks.

    Flexible Global Aggregation and Dynamic Client Selection for Federated Learning in Internet of Vehicles

    Tariq Qayyum1, Zouheir Trabelsi1,*, Asadullah Tariq1, Muhammad Ali2, Kadhim Hayawi3, Irfan Ud Din4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.2, pp. 1739-1757, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.043684

    Abstract Federated Learning (FL) enables collaborative and privacy-preserving training of machine learning models within the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) realm. While FL effectively tackles privacy concerns, it also imposes significant resource requirements. In traditional FL, trained models are transmitted to a central server for global aggregation, typically in the cloud. This approach often leads to network congestion and bandwidth limitations when numerous devices communicate with the same server. The need for Flexible Global Aggregation and Dynamic Client Selection in FL for the IoV arises from the inherent characteristics of IoV environments. These include diverse and distributed data sources, varying data quality,… More >

    Energy Efficiency Maximization in Mobile Edge Computing Networks via IRS assisted UAV Communications

    Ying Zhang1, Weiming Niu2, Supu Xiu1,3, Guangchen Mu3,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.2, pp. 1865-1884, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.030114

    Abstract In this paper, we investigate the energy efficiency maximization for mobile edge computing (MEC) in intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) assisted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) communications. In particular, UAV can collect the computing tasks of the terrestrial users and transmit the results back to them after computing. We jointly optimize the users’ transmitted beamforming and uploading ratios, the phase shift matrix of IRS, and the UAV trajectory to improve the energy efficiency. The formulated optimization problem is highly non-convex and difficult to be solved directly. Therefore, we decompose the original problem into three sub-problems. We first propose the successive convex approximation… More >

    Tianzhe Jiao, Xiaoyue Feng, Chaopeng Guo, Dongqi Wang, Jie Song*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.76, No.3, pp. 3585-3603, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.040068

    Abstract Mobile-edge computing (MEC) is a promising technology for the fifth-generation (5G) and sixth-generation (6G) architectures, which provides resourceful computing capabilities for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as virtual reality, mobile devices, and smart cities. In general, these IoT applications always bring higher energy consumption than traditional applications, which are usually energy-constrained. To provide persistent energy, many references have studied the offloading problem to save energy consumption. However, the dynamic environment dramatically increases the optimization difficulty of the offloading decision. In this paper, we aim to minimize the energy consumption of the entire MEC system under the latency constraint by… More >

    A Smart Obfuscation Approach to Protect Software in Cloud

    Lei Yu1, Yucong Duan2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.76, No.3, pp. 3949-3965, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.038970

    Abstract Cloud computing and edge computing brought more software, which also brought a new danger of malicious software attacks. Data synchronization mechanisms of software can further help reverse data modifications. Based on the mechanisms, attackers can cover themselves behind the network and modify data undetected. Related knowledge of software reverse engineering can be organized as rules to accelerate the attacks, when attackers intrude cloud server to access the source or binary codes. Therefore, we proposed a novel method to resist this kind of reverse engineering by breaking these rules. Our method is based on software obfuscations and encryptions to enhance the… More >
