Integration of fuzzy object-oriented multimedia database components

Demir, Utku
Improvements in technology have increased the amount of human interactive systems that support visual and audial operations. Besides many others, especially the recent entertainment industry has been built on the digital world and processing large collections of multimedia materials. Having huge amount multimedia data revealed the need for efficient and effective ways of modeling, storing, addressing, and retrieving such huge data, mostly, the semantic contents in it. Although there are some database management systems that support multimedia objects by some add-ons or extensions, they are far away from satisfying user requests, which are usually based on similarity and semantic contents. In this study, the requirements of multimedia databases are analyzed. To satisfy such requirements, a database architecture which is specialized for multimedia objects is constructed and a conceptual data model, handling semantic multimedia contents is implemented. In the architecture, a semantic information extractor, a high-dimensional index structure and an intelligent fuzzy object-oriented database component are integrated through a coordinator structure. The proposed architecture is realized and a prototype system is implemented by tightly coupling several multimedia modules.

Recent Improvements in document image systems and their low-cost implementation on networks of microcomputers is leading to the reengineering of many information systems. We describe how document image systems can be applied to information systems. In order to compare the performance of a conventional information system with one implemented with document imaging processing capability we conducted a discrete event simulation. We modeled the conventional information system for processing graduate student ...
Analysis of extended feature models with constraint programming
Karataş, Ahmet Serkan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this dissertation we lay the groundwork of automated analysis of extended feature models with constraint programming. Among different proposals, feature modeling has proven to be very effective for modeling and managing variability in Software Product Lines. However, industrial experiences showed that feature models often grow too large with hundreds of features and complex cross-tree relationships, which necessitates automated analysis support. To address this issue we present a mapping from extended fe...
Fuzzy spatial data cube construction and its use in association rule mining
Işık, Narin; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
The popularity of spatial databases increases since the amount of the spatial data that need to be handled has increased by the use of digital maps, images from satellites, video cameras, medical equipment, sensor networks, etc. Spatial data are difficult to examine and extract interesting knowledge; hence, applications that assist decision-making about spatial data like weather forecasting, traffic supervision, mobile communication, etc. have been introduced. In this thesis, more natural and precise knowle...
Mediated Effects of Technology Competencies and Experiences on Relations among Attitudes Towards Technology Use, Technology Ownership, and Self Efficacy about Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Yerdelen-Damar, Sevda; Boz, Yezdan; Aydin-Gunbatar, Sevgi (2017-08-01)
This study examined the relations of preservice science teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences to their self-efficacy beliefs about technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). The present study also investigated interrelations among preservice teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences. The participants of study were 665 elementary preservice science teachers (467 fema...
Real-time object-oriented framework for fmi co-simulation
Çam Silik, Merve; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
Development of models, their integration into FMI-compliant co-simulation and performing the simulation in real-time environment are crucial tasks in embedded system development. To introduce an object-oriented co-simulation environment to real-time domain, promote model reuse and minimize effort for co-simulation environment generation a Real-Time Object-Oriented Framework for FMI Co-Simulation was developed for completion of this thesis. A case study which comprises of a control actuation system and sine ...
