    Survey of Indoor Localization Based on Deep Learning

    Khaldon Azzam Kordi1, Mardeni Roslee1,*, Mohamad Yusoff Alias1, Abdulraqeb Alhammadi2, Athar Waseem3, Anwar Faizd Osman4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 3261-3298, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.044890

    Abstract This study comprehensively examines the current state of deep learning (DL) usage in indoor positioning. It emphasizes the significance and efficiency of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and recurrent neural networks (RNNs). Unlike prior studies focused on single sensor modalities like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, this research explores the integration of multiple sensor modalities (e.g., Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ultra-Wideband, ZigBee) to expand indoor localization methods, particularly in obstructed environments. It addresses the challenge of precise object localization, introducing a novel hybrid DL approach using received signal information (RSI), Received Signal Strength (RSS), and Channel State Information (CSI) data… More >

    A Privacy Preservation Method for Attributed Social Network Based on Negative Representation of Information

    Hao Jiang1, Yuerong Liao1, Dongdong Zhao2, Wenjian Luo3, Xingyi Zhang1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.1, pp. 1045-1075, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048653

    Abstract Due to the presence of a large amount of personal sensitive information in social networks, privacy preservation issues in social networks have attracted the attention of many scholars. Inspired by the self-nonself discrimination paradigm in the biological immune system, the negative representation of information indicates features such as simplicity and efficiency, which is very suitable for preserving social network privacy. Therefore, we suggest a method to preserve the topology privacy and node attribute privacy of attribute social networks, called AttNetNRI. Specifically, a negative survey-based method is developed to disturb the relationship between nodes in the… More >

    A Survey on Blockchain-Based Federated Learning: Categorization, Application and Analysis

    Yuming Tang1,#, Yitian Zhang2,#, Tao Niu1, Zhen Li2,3,*, Zijian Zhang1,3, Huaping Chen4, Long Zhang4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.3, pp. 2451-2477, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.030084

    Abstract Federated Learning (FL), as an emergent paradigm in privacy-preserving machine learning, has garnered significant interest from scholars and engineers across both academic and industrial spheres. Despite its innovative approach to model training across distributed networks, FL has its vulnerabilities; the centralized server-client architecture introduces risks of single-point failures. Moreover, the integrity of the global model—a cornerstone of FL—is susceptible to compromise through poisoning attacks by malicious actors. Such attacks and the potential for privacy leakage via inference starkly undermine FL’s foundational privacy and security goals. For these reasons, some participants unwilling use their private data… More >

    Self-Compassion Moderates the Effect of Contingent Self-Esteem on Well-Being: Evidence from Cross-Sectional Survey and Experiment

    Ruirui Zhang1, Xuguang Zhang2, Minxin Yang3, Haoran Zhang4,5,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 117-126, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.045819

    Abstract Contingent self-esteem captures the fragile nature of self-esteem and is often regarded as suboptimal to psychological functioning. Self-compassion is another important self-related concept assumed to promote mental health and well-being. However, research on the relation of self-compassion to contingent self-esteem is lacking. Two studies were conducted to explore the role of self-compassion, either as a personal characteristic or an induced mindset, in influencing the effects of contingent self-esteem on well-being. Study 1 recruited 256 Chinese college students (30.4% male, mean age = 21.72 years) who filled out measures of contingent self-esteem, self-compassion, and well-being. The… More >

    Cloud Datacenter Selection Using Service Broker Policies: A Survey

    Salam Al-E’mari1, Yousef Sanjalawe2,*, Ahmad Al-Daraiseh3, Mohammad Bany Taha4, Mohammad Aladaileh2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.1, pp. 1-41, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.043627

    Abstract Amid the landscape of Cloud Computing (CC), the Cloud Datacenter (DC) stands as a conglomerate of physical servers, whose performance can be hindered by bottlenecks within the realm of proliferating CC services. A linchpin in CC’s performance, the Cloud Service Broker (CSB), orchestrates DC selection. Failure to adroitly route user requests with suitable DCs transforms the CSB into a bottleneck, endangering service quality. To tackle this, deploying an efficient CSB policy becomes imperative, optimizing DC selection to meet stringent Quality-of-Service (QoS) demands. Amidst numerous CSB policies, their implementation grapples with challenges like costs and availability.… More >
