Search-based composition, streaming and playback of video archive content
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
Locating content in existing video archives is both a time and bandwidth consuming process since users might have to download and manually watch large portions of superfluous videos. In this paper, we present two novel prototypes using an Internet based video composition and streaming system with a keyword-based search interface that collects, converts, analyses, indexes, and ranks video content. ...
Design Principles for Isolation Kernels

Separating mobility from mobile agents
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2001-01-16)
In this paper we argue that the traditional model of a mobile agent provides a poor programming structure. We base our argument on our experience since 1993 in building distributed applications and mobile agent platforms. We have observed that every distributed applications contain three distinct aspects, which we call function, mobility and management. Separating an application into these three ...
Digital Chronofiles of Life Experience
(Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2015-02-28)
Technology has brought us to the point where we are able to digitally sample life experience in rich multimedia detail, often referred to as lifelogging. In this paper we explore the potential of lifelogging for the digitisation and archiving of life experience into a longitudinal media archive for an individual. We motivate the historical archive potential for rich digital memories, enabling ...
TOS: A Kernel of a Distributed Systems Management System
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2000-03-02)
Distributed systems are becoming harder to manage, in part because the uses we put to distributed systems are rapidly changing. Hence, the software used to manage a distributed system needs to be flexible enough to accommodate these new uses. It also has to be secure enough to not allow unauthorized changes to be made to the system. We present a library and a kernel that supports the management ...
Engineering push-based web services
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2005)
Much of the content of popular Internet information sources is highly dynamic: urgent in nature and sometimes relevant only for a short time. The typical approach to querying such dynamic sources is polling for updates often.1 This strains the traditional pull-based Internet and wastes network resources on transmitting redundant information. This paper focuses on how to structure the Internet to ...
An extensible software architecture for mobile components
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2000-10-06)
This paper presents a generic software architecture for large-scale distributed applications where mobile agents are an integral part. We have devised this architecture through completion of a series of mobile agent systems and associated applications over the last 8 years.
Performance experiments with the Storm View Distributed Parallel Volume Renderer.
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 1995-06)
Volume rendering is a useful but cpu-intensive method for visualizing large scalar fields. The time to render a single image may be reduced by parallel processing. This paper reports on performance experiments with the StormView volume renderer, which is parallelized on a set of 57 MIPS / 17 MFLOPS workstations connected by a 10 Mbps Ethernet. For certain user patterns, we show that our parallelization ...
A programmable structure for pervasive computing
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2004)
This exstended abstract presents an asymmetric and programmable (extensible) approach to pervasive computing. The idea is to off-load computations from light portable clients into a back-bone of seamlessly integrated servers. This way, a user can extend and personalize his pervasive computational environment by installing computations following his trajectory throughout the day. Focus on this extended ...
An approach towards an agent computing environment
(Research report; Forskningsrapport, 1998)
We devise a mobile agent middleware architecture for supporting distributed applications in a wide-area network. The architecture provides a structural framework for functional components that are needed to support mobile agents in asymmetric networking environments.
