Full-text available
Recent advances in information technology have revolutionized the automotive industry, paving the way for next-generation smart vehicular mobility. Vehicles, roadside units, and other road users can collaborate to deliver novel services and applications. These services and applications require 1) massive volumes of heterogeneous and continuous data...
Article
Full-text available
Connected vehicles, whether equipped with advanced driver-assistance systems or fully autonomous, require human driver supervision and are currently constrained to visual information in their line-of-sight. A cooperative perception system among vehicles increases their situational awareness by extending their perception range. Existing solutions fo...

AI plays a key role in current cyberspace and future immersive ecosystems that pinpoint user experiences. Thus, the trustworthiness of such AI systems is vital as failures in these systems can cause serious user harm. Although there are related works on exploring trustworthy AI (TAI) metrics in the current cyberspace, ecosystems towards user-center...
Conference Paper
The Internet has been experiencing immense growth in multimedia traffic from mobile devices. The increase in traffic presents many challenges to user-centric networks, network operators, and service providers. Foremost among these challenges is the inability of networks to determine the types of encrypted traffic and thus the level of network servi...
Article
The deployment of 5G urban networks is often described as a disruptive phenomenon since it enables new emerging Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as connected vehicles. Such applications demand new spectrum regulations to decrease network investment requirements by incentivizing operator cooperation. However, currently, no clear consensus...

Artificial intelligence shows promise for solving many practical societal problems in areas such as healthcare and transportation. However, the current mechanisms for AI model diffusion such as Github code repositories, academic project webpages, and commercial AI marketplaces have some limitations; for example, a lack of monetization methods, mode...

Full-text available
The combination of 5G and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) can significantly reduce application delay by lowering transmission delay and bringing computational capabilities closer to the end user. Therefore, 5G MEC could enable excellent user experience in applications like Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR), which are computation-intensive, and delay...
Preprint
The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in businesses is increasing and thus enterprise IoT (EIoT) is seemingly shifting from hype to reality. However, the actual use of EIoT over significant timescales has not been empirically analyzed. In other words, the reality remains unexplored. Furthermore, despite the variety of EIoT verticals...

Mobile Augmented Reality (MAR) mixes physical environments with user-interactive virtual annotations. Immersive MAR experiences are supported by computation-intensive tasks which rely on offloading mechanisms to ease device workloads. However, this introduces additional network traffic which in turn influences the motion-to-photon latency (a determ...

The role of social media in promoting media pluralism was initially viewed as wholly positive. However, some governments are allegedly manipulating social media by hiring online commentators (also known as trolls) to spread propaganda and disinformation. In particular, an alleged system of professional trolls operating both domestically and interna...

Conference Paper
Deployment of 5G networks is often described as a disruptive phenomena. Specifically 5G should enable new emerging Internet of Things (IoT) applications. However, such applications require new regulation and business models to incentivize costly infrastructure investments. Currently, no clear consensus exists on the appropriate regulatory regime fo...
Article
Full-text available
Quality of experience (QoE) models quantify the relationship between user experience and network quality of service. With the exception of a few studies, most research on QoE has been conducted in laboratory conditions. Therefore, in order to validate and develop QoE models for the wild, researchers should carry out large scale field studies. This...
Preprint
The area of quality of service (QoS) in communications networks has been the target of research for already several decades with tens of thousands of published journal and conference papers. However, the practical introduction of QoS systems in commercial networks has been limited (with a preference for simple overprovisioning). Despite this disson...
Article
Mobile users today interact with a variety of mobile device types including smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and others. However research on mobile device type substitution has been limited in several respects including a lack of detailed and robust analyses. Therefore, in this work we study mobile device type substitution through analysis of mu...

Full-text available
Mobile users have not been able to exploit spatio-temporal differences between individual mobile networks operators for a variety of reasons. End user network switching and multihoming are two promising mechanisms that could allow such exploitation. However these mechanisms have not been thoroughly explored at a general system level with QoE metric...
Article
The increasing number of users with multiple mobile devices underscores the importance of understanding how users interact, often simultaneously, with these multiple devices. However, most device based monitoring studies have focused only on a single device type. In contrast, we study the multidevice usage of a US-based panel through device based m...
Article
Mobile quality of experience and user satisfaction are growing research topics. However, the relationship between a user's satisfaction with network quality and the networks real performance in the field remains unexplored.This paper is the first to study both network and non-network predictors of user satisfaction in the wild. We report findings f...

The frequent appearance of empirical rank-frequency laws, such as Zipf's law, in a wide range of domains reinforces the importance of understanding and modeling these laws and rank-frequency distributions in general. In this spirit, we utilize a simple stochastic cascade process to simulate several empirical rank-frequency distributions longitudina...

Creative industries are based on individual creativity and skill, as opposed to traditional manufacturing and service industries, which are technology and process driven. Examples of high-impact creative industries include music, advertising and computer gaming. These industries play an increasingly important role in national economies worldwide. I...
