FMDBMS - a fuzzy MPEG-7 database management system

Erçin, Nazif İlker
Continuous progress in multimedia research in recent years have led to proliferation of their applications in everyday life. The ever-growing demand in high performance multimedia applications creates the need for new and efficient storage and retrieval techniques. There exist numerous studies in the literature attempting to describe the content of these multimedia documents. Moving Picture Experts Group’s XML based MPEG-7 is one of these studies that makes it possible to describe multimedia content in terms of both low and high level properties. MPEG-7 DDL allows defining new types using already defined types. Within the past ten years, it became a widely accepted standard in multimedia applications. In this thesis, an XML database application is developed to manage MPEG-7 descriptions, utilizing eXist XML DB as the database management system and a JAVA application as the frontend. MPEG-7 Description Schemes are extended by introducing fuzzy semantic types, such as FuzzyObject and FuzzyEvent, using the MPEG-7 DDL. From this point of view, the application of fuzzy XML methods in MPEG-7 standard is a novel approach.


Modeling and Querying Fuzzy SOLAP-Based Framework
Keskin, Sinan; Yazıcı, Adnan (2022-03-01)
Nowadays, with the rise of sensor technology, the amount of spatial and temporal data is increasing day by day. Modeling data in a structured way and performing effective and efficient complex queries has become more essential than ever. Online analytical processing (OLAP), developed for this purpose, provides appropriate data structures and supports querying multidimensional numeric and alphanumeric data. However, uncertainty and fuzziness are inherent in the data in many complex database applications, esp...
Adaptable Safety and Security in V2X Systems
VİLLARREAL VASQUEZ, Miguel; BHARGAVA, Bharat; Angın, Pelin (2017-06-30)
With the advances in the areas of mobile computing and wireless communications, V2X systems have become a promising technology enabling deployment of applications providing road safety, traffic efficiency and infotainment. Due to their increasing popularity, V2X networks have become a major target for attackers, making them vulnerable to security threats and network conditions, and thus affecting the safety of passengers, vehicles and roads. Existing research in V2X does not effectively address the safety, ...
MOFCA: Multi-objective fuzzy clustering algorithm for wireless sensor networks
SERT, SEYYİT ALPER; Bagci, Hakan; Yazıcı, Adnan (2015-05-01)
This study introduces a new clustering approach which is not only energy-efficient but also distribution-independent for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Clustering is used as a means of efficient data gathering technique in terms of energy consumption. In clustered networks, each node transmits acquired data to a cluster-head which the nodes belong to. After a cluster-head collects all the data from all member nodes, it transmits the data to the base station (sink) either in a compressed or uncompressed ma...
Fuzzy Semantic Web Architecture for Activity Detection in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network Applications
Ozdin, Ali Nail; Yazıcı, Adnan; KOYUNCU, Murat (2019-01-01)
This study aims to increase the reliability of activity detection in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) by using Semantic Web technologies extended with fuzzy logic. The proposed approach consists of three layers: the sensor layer, the data layer, and the Semantic Web layer. The sensor layer comprises a WMSN comprising sensor nodes with multimedia and scalar sensors. The data layer retrieves and stores data from the sink of WMSN. At the top of the architecture, there is a semantic web layer that in...

Target-environment networks provide a conceptual framework for the analysis and prediction of complex regulatory systems such as genetic networks, eco-finance networks or sensor-target assignments. These evolving networks consist of two major groups of entities that are interacting by unknown relationships. The structure and dynamics of the hidden regulatory system have to be revealed from uncertain measurement data. In this paper, the concept of fuzzy target-environment networks is introduced and various f...
