    A lossless image compression algorithm using predictive coding based on quantized colors 

    Fuangfar Pensiri; Surapong Auwatanamongkol, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2011)

    Predictive coding has proven to be effective for lossless image compression. The predictive coding estimates true color of a pixel based on the true colors of its neighboring pixels. To enhance the accuracy of the estimation, we propose a new and simple predictive coding algorithm that uses the quantized colors of neighboring pixels to estimate the true color of a pixel. The estimation is based on the majority of quantized colors of the three neighboring pixels. Experiments, over a set of true color 24-bit images whose colors of pixels are quantized ...

    Integrated secure multipath mobile ad hoc network 

    Supachote Lertvorratham; Pipat Hiranvanichakorn, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2010)

    The dramatic growth of wireless communication technology today makes wireless equipment affordable and widely used. In a situation where a temporary wireless network needs to be established but fixed-base station is not available, a mobile ad hoc network can be implemented. For implementing a mobile ad hoc network, I realize that there are some challenges. Firstly, most of mobile ad hoc network routings rely on establishment of minimum hops route. I argue in this case that there can be some other metrics, which can be used to establish a better ...

    Grid-based supervised clustering algorithm using greedy and gradient descent methods to build clusters 

    Pornpimol Bungkomkhun; Surapong Auwatanamongkol, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2012)

    Clustering analysis is one of the primary methods of data mining tasks with the objective to understand the natural grouping (or structure) of data objects in a dataset. The clustering tasks aim to segment the entire data set into relatively homogenous subgroups or clusters where the similarities of the data objects within clusters are maximized and the similarities of data objects belonging to different clusters are minimized. For supervised clustering, not only attribute variables of data objects but also the class variable of data objects take ...

    Materialized views selection using two-phase optimization algorithm 

    Jiratta Phuboon-ob; Raweewan Auepanwiriyakul, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2009)

    A data warehouse (DW) can be defined as a subject-oriented, integrated, nonvolatile and time-variant collection of data, which has value and role for decisionmaking by querying. Queries to DW are critical regarding to their complexity and length. They often access millions of tuples, and involve joins between relations and aggregations. To avoid accessing base tables and increase the speed of queries posed to a DW, we can use some intermediate results from the query processing stored in the DW called materialized views. However, these views have ...

    Inversion of web service invocation using publish/subscribe push-based architecture 

    Thanisa Numnonda; Rattakorn Poonsuph, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2012)

    Among enterprise application integration solutions, Web Service is a promising technology to achieve the interoperability in heterogeneous environments. However, traditional Web Service invocation may lead to unnecessary network traffic, long response time, and bottleneck problems at service providers. While a publish/subscribe model provides an advantage of prompt notification which can eliminate unnecessary network traffic, its achievement in interoperability is still limited. By integrating Web Service technologies with a publish/subscribe ...

    Texture classification using an invariant texture representation and a tree matching kernel 

    Somkid Soottitantawat; Surapong Auwatanamongkol, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2010)

    The real world is rich in many textures, which can be regarded as the visual appearance of surfaces. They may be perceived as being smooth or rough, coarse or fine, homogeneous or non-homogeneous, etc. Moreover, textures within real images vary in scale, rotation and illumination. Several researchers have proposed texture analysis methods to describe textures in many applications, such as computer vision, pattern recognition, image retrieval, scene image analysis, and so on. Although the analysis of texture properties has attracted the ...

    Thai rhetorical structure analysis 

    Somnuk Sinthupoun; Ohm Sornil, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2009)

    Rhetorical Structure Analysis (RSA) explores Discourse Relations (DRs) among related Elementary Discourse Units (EDUs) in a Rhetorical Structure Tree (RS tree) to describe meaning in a text. It is very useful in many text processing tasks employing relationships among EDUs to use an input such as text understanding, summarization, discourse parsing, machine translation and question answering. The Thai language, with its distinctive linguistic characteristics, requires a unique technique. Thai linguistic characteristics have no explicit EDU ...
