Innovative Design


Golsteijn, Hoven, Frohlich, and Sellen (2014) explore combining physical crafting with digital technologies as a new form of creative expression. Yang, and Xu, and and Li (2016) provide an energy optimization of design space to automatically generate design layouts. Edge et al. (2016) combine three venues for presentation design to develop concepts and recommendations for a hybrid presentation medium.

NoSQL Databases


Hingant, Zambrano, Pérez, Pérez, and Esteve (2018) describe NoSQL databases as compliant with a critical infrastructure protection system as it provides distributed data sharing and the capability of storing a very large amount of data. Grover and Kar (2017) describe NoSQL databases for graph database management systems that can be implemented in recommendation systems, bioinformatics, and semantics. Angles et al. (2017) explain NoSQL graph databases capable of new types of queries that identify and navigate patterns between nodes that can span various lengths or paths. Angles et al. (2017) describe two graph data models, edge-labelled graphs and property graphs. Property graphs label nodes and edges annotated with metadata (Angles et al., 2017).

Digital Media


Rangaswamy, Challagulla, Young, and Cutrell (2013) conduct qualitative research on the social and cultural influence of social network sites. Jonathan and Marion (2012) explain that libraries can encourage and review mobile device activity to promote digital competencies of patrons. McMillan, Brown, Sellen, Lindley, and Martens (2015) describe the design opportunities in the transition from file-based media to cloud-based streaming services.

IT Security in Cloud Computing


Srinivasan and Revathy (2018) describe how application programming interfaces for big data clusters require protection from malicious software.
Nastase (2017) list a number of attacks that can affect business continuity such as privacy leaks, denial of service attacks, malicious code, and social engineering. Cox, Yan, Bhattacharjee, and Ganapathy (2018) propose a system for acquiring memory snapshots while minimizing performance impact for security analysis. Zhang and Lee (2018) provide and validate a secure architecture for virtual machines in cloud computing environment.
Jeon, Papalexakis, Faloutsos, Sael, and Kang (2016) explain how tensors, multi-dimensional arrays, can be implemented for analyzing large scale, real world, data. Meng, Qin, Liu, and He (2018) create an alarm system for securing cloud computing alarms that classifies and processes various attacks.

Climate Analysis Systems


Yang, Yu, Hu, Jiang, and Li (2017) explain how cloud computing can support climate analysis such as examining a combination of meteorological, geological, and environmental data with observation and simulation. Vandal et al. (2018) propose measuring uncertainty in climate change with deep learning models. Simpson et al. (2016) describe how integrated climate economy models can implement virtual reality to support visualization of models.

Jänicke (2017) highlights climate change initiatives that increase awareness of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Radu (2017) identifies trends in the development of green data centers, capable of maximizing energy efficiency and minimizing emissions. Kadam, Kanoo, and Zheng (2017) implement linear regression models to measure relationships between CO2 emissions and longitude and latitude locations and observe faster changes in continental areas than coastal areas.

Elia et al. (2016) suggest optimizations for the multidimensional, array-based data of climate change in developing a server capable of scientific climate analysis. Fraile-Jurado et al. (2017) apply probability distribution models to map the hazards of sea level rises. Newman (2017) analyzed data from social media on the topic of climate change and identified that ordinary citizens, mainstream media, and new media gathered the most attention to the topics of climate change with the leading topics discussing the public understanding and legitimacy of climate change.
