Online social networks facilitate the diffusion of misinformation. Some theorists construe the problem of misinformation as a problem of knowledge, hence of ignorance. This assumption leads to solutions in which misinformation (false belief) is resisted by good information (true belief). We argue that information is better understood as gossip. We...

The incorporation of robots in the social fabric of our society has taken giant leaps, enabled by advances in artificial intelligence and big data. As these robots become increasingly adept at parsing through enormous datasets and making decisions where humans fall short, a significant challenge lies in the analysis of robot behavior. Capturing int...

Cities are microcosms representing a diversity of human experience. The complexity of urban systems arises from this diversity, where the services that cities offer to their inhabitants have to be tailored for their unique requirements. This paper studies the complexity of urban environments in terms of the assimilation of its communities. We exami...

Many organizations continue to struggle with the implementation of cybersecurity risk assessment and management programs. Navigating the evolving cybersecurity landscape and trends in technology commercialization require an understanding of the relational organizational context within which cybersecurity risks are rooted. While several existing cyb...

This paper studies contractual graphs, where the formation of edges between nodes result in dyadic exchanges. Each dyadic exchange is analyzed as a contractual agreement that is implemented upon fulfilment of underlying conditions. As these dyadic exchanges proliferate, the resulting population of these exchanges creates a contractual graph. A cont...

Blockchain is a distributed ledger that is decentralized, immutable, and transparent, which maintains a continuously growing list of transaction records ordered into blocks. As the core of blockchain, the consensus algorithm is an agreement to validate the correctness of blockchain transactions. For example, Bitcoin is a public blockchain where eac...

A fundamental open question for oracles in blockchain environments is a determination of the amount of trust to be placed in the oracle. Oracles serve as intermediaries between a trusted blockchain environment and the untrusted external environment from where the oracles fetch data. As such, it is important to understand the uncertainty introduced...

Social networking sites have given users unprecedented opportunities for the generation and dissemination of content. A variety of social networking sites exist for different purposes, to afford users a range of anonymous and non-anonymous options for self-expression, and the ability to be a part of a virtual community. These “affordances” enable u...

In today’s hypercompetitive world, electronics manufacturing companies experience challenges to respond to increasing consumer electronics demand while combatting disruptive change in their industries. The revolution in manufacturing via Industry 4.0 has transformed the way that companies approach supply chain process to gain a stronger understandi...
Article
The accumulation of data from various instrumental analytical instruments has paved a way for the application of chemometrics. Challenges, however, exist in processing, analyzing, visualizing, and storing these data. Chemometrics is a relatively young area of analytical chemistry that involves the use of statistics and computer applications in chem...
Chapter
Modern instruments have the capacity to generate and store enormous volumes of data and the challenges involved in processing, analyzing and visualizing this data are well recognized. The field of Chemometrics (a subspecialty of Analytical Chemistry) grew out of efforts to develop a toolbox of statistical and computer applications for data processi...

Wireless body area networks (WBANs) are emerging as important networks, applicable in various fields. In this chapter a comprehensive survey of WBANs that are designed for applications in healthcare is presented. The survey consists of stand-alone sections focusing on important aspects of WBANs. Topics covered are: monitoring and sensing, power eff...
Conference Paper
A class on Technologies for Creative Learning was designed to investigate the answers to a well-researched question: “What learning mechanisms spark creativity?” The class was offered for the first time at Oklahoma Baptist University during the Winter 2013 semester, and was structured to introduce computer science concepts to an interdisciplinary g...

The term wireless body area network (WBAN) is used to describe a network of devices connected wirelessly for communication on, in and near the body. In this paper, we survey the current state of various aspects of WBAN technologies that are being used in healthcare applications. In particular, we examine the following areas: monitoring and sensing,...
