Recently, crypto-cloud computing has become an interesting research area with many technical, security, commercial and financial aspects, goals and consequences. The original intention of the cloud is to link computing stations (services) for collaboration. Sharing and coordination of computational resources is important because of the activities between service providers and service requesters. Considering the cooperative functionality of crypto-cloud computing, the use of game theory in that area has became very beneficial. In the sequel, we mathematically associate that area with game theory, i.e., the bargaining and compromising of interests of various "players", by using a game-theoretical approach which arises from networks, servers, operating systems, storage devices, etc. Further, we propose a novel efficient encryption system by using XTR (effective and compact subgroup trace representation) which has the property of semantic security. Those interactions has been constructed in the direction of how cryptographic tools can be used to address a natural optimization problem in the fields of game theory and financial economics. It is believed that game theory and its optimization is going to provide a suitable framework for the design of a crypto-cloud computing system that will be perceived as a strong technique and satisfy the needs of many participants and users of the cloud. The paper ends with a conclusion and an outlook to future studies.


A Structural Model for Students' Adoption of Learning Management Systems: An Empirical Investigation in the Higher Education Context
FINDIK COŞKUNÇAY, Duygu; Alkis, Nurcan; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2018-04-01)
With the recent advances in information technologies, Learning Management Systems have taken on a significant role in providing educational resources. The successful use of these systems in higher education is important for the implementation, management and continuous improvement of e-learning services to increase the quality of learning. This study aimed to identify the factors affecting higher education students' behavioral intention towards Learning Management Systems. A research model was proposed base...
A Workflow for Offering Hardware Accelerators as a Cloud Computing Service: Implementation and Evaluation
Tırlıoğlu, Anıl; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-2)
Cloud computing and hardware accelerators are two paradigm changes in the field of information technologies and computers. Accordingly, this thesis proposes a workflow for offering users hardware accelerators implemented on FPGA as computing resources in a heterogeneous cloud data center. To this end, we perform the virtualization of FPGA resources as reconfigurable regions (RRs) and provide these resources through OpenStack, an open-source cloud resource management platform. Our workflow is designed for S...
A deep learning approach for the transonic flow field predictions around airfoils
Duru, Cihat; Alemdar, Hande; Baran, Özgür Uğraş (2022-01-01)
Learning from data offers new opportunities for developing computational methods in research fields, such as fluid dynamics, which constantly accumulate a large amount of data. This study presents a deep learning approach for the transonic flow field predictions around airfoils. The physics of transonic flow is integrated into the neural network model by utilizing Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) simulations. A detailed investigation on the performance of the model is made both qualitatively and quant...
A comparison on textured motion classification
Oztekin, Kaan; Akar, Gözde (2006-01-01)
Textured motion - generally known as dynamic or temporal texture analysis, classification, synthesis, segmentation and recognition is popular research areas in several fields such as computer vision, robotics, animation, multimedia databases etc. In the literature, several algorithms are proposed to characterize these textured motions such as stochastic and deterministic algorithms. However, there is no study which compares the performances of these algorithms. In this paper, we carry out a complete compari...

The primary purpose of this thesis is to evaluate Turkey's innovation policies in the mobile telecommunications sector. A limited number of global companies produce mobile telecommunication technologies. These companies dominate the infrastructure market. Policymakers in Turkey have set domestic production in the electronic communications sector as a target in many strategy documents. ULAK company was established, and HTK, which hosts approximately 150 companies, has formed for production in the indus...
