Statistics about Big Data

10 things statistics taught us about big data analysis. A great read.

Btw, if you need just one rule about data analysis, then it is very simple: "plot your data".

On Mobile Mesh Networks

With the advances in mobile computing technologies and the growth of the Net, mobile mesh networks are going through a set of important evolutionary steps. In this paper, we survey architectural aspects of mobile mesh networks and their use cases and deployment models. Also, we survey challenging areas of mobile mesh networks and describe our vision of promising mobile services. This paper presents a basic introductory material for Masters of Open Information Technologies Lab, interested in modern mobile services.

Metadata in SDN API

Our paper in arxiv: Dmitry Namiot, Manfred Sneps-Sneppe "Metadata in SDN API"

This paper discusses the system aspects of development of applied programming interfaces in Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Almost all existing SDN interfaces use so-called Representational State Transfer (REST) services as a basic model. This model is simple and straightforward for developers, but often does not support the information (metadata) necessary for programming automation. In this article, we cover the issues of representation of metadata in the SDN API.

On Indoor Positioning

A new paper: Namiot, Dmitry. "On Indoor Positioning." International Journal of Open Information Technologies 3.3 (2015): 23-26.

This paper presents the survey of the modern indoor positioning technologies and systems. We discuss Wi-Fi and Bluetooth based positioning systems, light-based and magnetic field systems. It is our first attempt to classify indoor positioning techniques. We try to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of various indoor positioning technologies and systems, compare their accuracy, applicability, working principles and performance parameters.

Activity Monitoring

Manfred Sneps-Sneppe, Dmitry Namiot "Smart Socket for Activity Monitoring"

In this short paper we consider the problem of monitoring physical activity in the smart house. The authors suggested a simple device that allows medical staff and relatives to monitor the activity for older adults living alone. This sensor monitors the switching-on of electrical devices. The fact of switching is seen as confirmation of physical activity. It is confirmed by SMS notifications to observers.
