The use of Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) has proliferated in numerous fields. When a system criterion is formulated in form of a Boolean function, its BDD is constructed. Each node in the BDD is further mapped into another form to be exploited in the system analysis. However, the cost of the resultant mapping form is directly related to the BDD s...

Data is considered an important asset for organizations, companies, and even people. Crucial decisions depend mainly on data. Exchanging data is essential in order to negotiate ideas, thoughts, and decisions. Networks are the communication channels of data exchange although data is exposed to different attacks, threats, and loss. Because of this, d...

Introducing groups to the MADCOW annotation system solves the privacy-collaboration problem for users. The proper matching between groups and users solved the group join problem for both groups’ owners and users. We used ontological and URL-based measures to execute the match.
