Visualization of Events for Detection of Relevant Patterns

As devices no longer function in isolation, opportunities will emerge for synergies to be created between disparate information pieces. However the user can and will quickly be overwhelmed with the amount and clutter of the available information. We envision a tool in which a user could define the information pattern/event and action (s) to be taken in some exploratory fashion in order to efficiently create relevant and personalized events. A number of visualization tools for communication patterns [1, 2] exist, but these tend to be non-trivial implementations typically not intended for the end user. Implementation of an event visualization tool is a significant challenge, in this paper we will highlight some initial exploratory work performed and some future possibilities in this area.

Communication of distributed discrete-event supervisors on a switched network
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2008-05-30)
In order to tackle the controller synthesis problem for large-scale discrete-event systems, recent approaches suggest the design of interacting modular or decentralized supervisors. In these works, information exchange between the supervisors is either required implicitly by the synchronization of shared events or explicitly by the communication of events or symbols. However, it is not discussed how the communication can be realized if the supervisors are implemented in distributed controller devices that a...
Hierarchical multitasking control of discrete event systems: Computation of projections and maximal permissiveness
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Cury, José E.r. (null; 2010-12-01)
This paper extends previous results on the hierarchical and decentralized control of multitasking discrete event systems (MTDES). Colored observers, a generalization of the observer property, together with local control consistency, allow to derive sufficient conditions for synthesizing modular and hierarchical control that are both strongly nonblocking (SNB) and maximally permissive. A polynomial procedure to verify if a projection fulfills the above properties is proposed and in the case they fail for a g...
Evaluation of Security Information and Event Management Systems for Custom Security Visualization Generation
Sonmez, Ferda Ozdemir; Günel Kılıç, Banu (2018-12-04)
Security Information and Event Management Systems (SIEM) are generally very complex systems encapsulating a large number of functions with different behaviors. Visualization is a common way of data presentation in these systems along with other data presentation ways such as reporting, alerting, text messaging. However, generation of the visualization has different steps. If the data is in a custom format, rather than a predefined format which either obeys a standard or a known file structure, the generatio...

An event model learning framework is proposed for indoor and outdoor surveillance applications in order to decrease human intervention in the modeling process. The resulting framework makes event detection and recognition flexible, domain and scene independent. A set of predicate types is introduced which define basic spatio-temporal relations and interactions between objects and people in the videos. A set of policies to choose the appropriate predicates is proposed for the event learning process. First, t...
Controller synthesis for an I/O-based hierarchical system architecture
Perk, Sebastian; Moor, Thomas; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2008-10-08)
In our previous work, a framework for the hierarchical design of discrete event systems has been introduced that is based on a notion of inputs and outputs. I/O-plant models describe the interaction of each subsystem with the operator (or controller) and the environment. By alternation of subsystem composition and controller synthesis, a hierarchy of controllers is obtained that complements a hierarchy of environment models. An admissibility condition was presented that implies liveness while allowing for a...
