C2Net: A Network-Efficient Approach to Collision Counting LSH Similarity Join

Approximate similarity join based on locality-sensitive hashing (LSH) provides a good solution for reducing the processing cost with a predictable loss of accuracy.
The network cost is the bottleneck in a distributed processing environment.
Focusing on collision counting LSH-based similarity join on MapReduce, we propose a network-efficient solution called C2Net, which improves the utilization of MapReduce combiners.

A Hardware-Accelerated Solution for Join Operations

The join query is one of the most fundamental database query types for relational database management systems and has a high cost in comparison to other query types.
We propose a novel solution to accelerate processing of sort-merge join queries with a low match rate.

A Quality-oriented Data Collection Scheme in Vehicular Sensor Networks

The communication overhead of collecting data from all vehicles at a high frequency could be prohibitively expensive.
We propose a Quality- oriented Data Collection (QDC) scheme which aims to effectively support the accuracy and real-time requirements stipulated by ITS applications, while reducing communication overhead due to the huge number of update packets.

Multivariate Time Series Data Management

Identifying similar time series is a core subroutine for many data mining and data analysis problems
Existing efficient solutions fail to scale as the number of dimensions increases
We propose an efficient approximation method via locality sensitive hashing.
