Simplifying offloading applications to the network

Bressana, Pietro Giuseppe ; Soulé, Robert (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO011.

Recent advancements in the networking field have made the data plane fully programmable, thanks to the introduction of both programmable network architectures and network programming languages. P4, the most prominent network programming language, provides software abstractions to the components of PISA, a programmable network architecture that is able to process huge amounts of network ...

Software documentation : automation and challenges

Aghajani, Emad ; Lanza, Michele (Dir.) ; Bavota, Gabriele (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO014.

Despite the undeniable practical benefits of documentation during software development and evolution activities, its creation and maintenance is often neglected, leading to inadequate and even inexistent documentation. Thus, it is not unusual for developers to deal with unfamiliar code they have difficulties in comprehending. Browsing the official documentation, or accessing online resources,...

Voronoi-like diagrams : towards linear-time algorithms for tree-like abstract Voronoi diagrams

Junginger, Kolja ; Papadopoulou, Evanthia (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO013.

Computational Geometry is a subfield of Algorithm Design and Analysis with a focus on the design and analysis of algorithms related to discrete geometric objects. The Voronoi diagram is one of the most important structures in Computational Geometry providing proximity information, which is applicable to many different fields of science. For a given set of points in the plane – called sites...

The signed distance measure in fuzzy statistical analysis : Some theoretical, empirical and programming advances

Berkachy, Rédina ; Donzé, Laurent (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

This thesis intends to present some advances in fuzzy statistical analyses. A particular distance between fuzzy numbers called the signed distance, seems to be appealing because of its directional property. It has the ability of describing the direction of travel between two fuzzy numbers. In addition, it has been often used as a fuzzy ranking tool or a defuzzification operator. Despite the...

Influence de l'accompagnement psycho-spirituel sur la capacité de résilience face à l'abus sexuel chez de jeunes adultes : Etude de cas multiples menée auprès de jeunes adultes libanais croyants âgés de 20 à 30 ans survivants d'abus sexuel

Rahmé, Elias ; Martin Soelch, Chantal (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

The trauma resulting from sexual abuse is a difficult experience that causes negative physical, psychological and spiritual impact on the victim. Research on this topic is more advanced in developed countries than in the Middle East. Lebanon lacks sufficient research about sexual abuse since it is still a taboo subject especially among young men. Thus, in this research, we have decided to...

Opinion mining for software development

Lin, Bin ; Bavota, Gabriele (Dir.) ; Lanza, Michele (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020INFO010.

Opinion mining, which uses computational methods to extract opinions and sentiments from natural language texts, can be applied to various software engineering (SE) tasks. For example, developers can mine user feedback from mobile app reviews to understand how to improve their products, and software team leaders can assess developers' mood and emotions by mining communication logs or commit...

L'apprentissage à l'âge adulte : Etude sur le point de vue des personnes présentant une déficience intellectuelle et sur trois dispositifs d'accompagnement

Veyre, Aline ; Petitpierre, Geneviève (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

L’idée de l’apprentissage tout au long de la vie n’est pas nouvelle. Elle fait écho à la conception et au développement d’une société dans laquelle des opportunités d'apprentissage sont disponibles pour tous, à tout âge. Elle réfère également à une vision dynamique et continue du développement individuel. Pourtant, arrivées à l’âge adulte, certaines personnes sont...

Unsupervised and Parameter-Free Clustering of Large Graphs for Knowledge Exploration and Recommendation

Lutov, Artem ; Cudré-Mauroux, Philippe (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020 ; no. 2192.

We live in an Information Age, facing a rapid increase in the amount of information that is exchanged. This permanently growing amount of data makes the ability to store, analyze, and act upon information a primary concern (in addition to the obvious privacy, legal and ethical issues that are related), raising the question: “How can one consume Big Data and transformit into actionable...
