      Abstract:In cloud computing, in order to achieve resource sharing, virtual machines (VMs) of different tenants might be scheduled to run on the same physical machine, namely VMs co-residency, which would bring many new security issues. Therefore, security threats due to VMs co-residency, including resources interference, covert or side channel, denial of service and virtual machine load monitoring were reviewed in this paper. Besides, existing detection methods of co-residency were introduced, four kinds of defense about co-residency were summarized and further trends were also pointed out.

      Abstract:Electrocardiogram(ECG) classification is a complex pattern recognition problem. At present, most of the ECG classification methods based on different machine learning model had achieved a high classification accuracy, but the learning efficiency was low. Therefore, a fast ECG learning algorithm was necessary. In this paper, a method of extreme learning machine was presented, which mapped the original feature space into Hilbert space with different kernel functions and made the ECG date in high dimensional space linearly separable. At last, the experimental verification was carried on MIT-BIH standard library. The results show that the proposed method has higher accuracy and faster learning speed than existing methods, which may be a potential tool for detection and analysis of clinical dynamic electrocardiogram and personalized real-time ECG monitoring.

      Abstract:In order to improve the performance of joint reconstruction of multi-sensor acceleration data from different wearable devices, a novel approach to jointly reconstruct based on distributed compressed sensing (DCS) algorithm was proposed. The basic idea was that the raw data was firstly compressed through encoding, and the encoded data was sent to remote terminal. Then, with the spatiotemporal correlation of data from sensors, the joint reconstruction method based on Block Sparse Bayesian Learning (BSBL) was applied to decode the compressed data at remote terminal. At last, the wearable data from University of California-Berkeley database was analized. Experiments show that the proposed approach can gain better performance than the traditional joint reconstruction algorithms such as TMSBL and tMFOCUSS, and decode the compressed data accurately. The proposed technique may be helpful for telemedicine application.

      Abstract:Electroencephalogram(EEG) contains a large amount of brain function state information, and has been widely applied in many fields, such as cranial nerve disease diagnosis, brain-computer interface, and sleep stage and anesthetic depth monitoring. EEG is a weak bio-electric signal, whose amplitude is just microvolt and frequency is lower than 150 Hz. Since EEG is easily interfered by signals, like electro-oculogram and electrocardiogram, effective extraction of EEG is key to EEG analysis. An EEG acquisition system based on STM32 was designed to realize effective acquisition of EEG. In this system, EEG signals were sensed by three lead biological electrodes on the forehead, then amplified through multistage amplification in the front analog circuit and filtered by passive filter or active filters. Meanwhile, electrical level rising circuit and electrode connection state detection circuit were also added in. After that, EEG signals were converted to digital value by 12 bit analog-to-digital converter, and then transferred to upper computer via bluetooth module to realize effective extraction and transmission, providing the basis for further processing and analysis. The effectiveness of this EEG acquisition system was verified by comparing output with other similar products.

      Abstract:An electrophysiological glasses based on independent chipset was proposed. It consisted of signal acquisition module, signal preprocessing module, microcontroller module and signal analysis module. Due to the high input impedance, active electrode, instead of conductive paste, was used as signal acquisition module, which could improve system availability. The signal preprocessing module took advantage of electrophysiological analog front-end to filter and amplify electrophysiological signal, thus removed interference and enhanced the signal to noise ratio. Cortex-M0 processor of stmicroelectronics was adopted as the microcontroller module for analog-to-digital conversion, analog front-end setup, and controlling of bluetooth module transceiver. The signal analysis module could realize digital filtering, feature extraction, and heart rate monitoring for electrophysiological signal. Based on this, experiments and signal analysis about neck electrocardiogram and brain electrical interaction were carried out.

      Abstract:Traditional operating platform of electrocardiogram (ECG) acquisition system was based on a wired device, which was not compatible with existing personal communication terminals like mobile phones, and portable computers. Moreover, it had many disadvantages such as poor maneuverability, high price, complexity and instability for continuous service.
