Using ambient radio environment to support practical pervasive computing by Alex Varshavsky ( )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mobile applications can benefit from increased awareness of the device's context. Unfortunately, existing solutions for inferring context require special purpose sensors or beacons on the mobile devices or in the physical environment. This requirement significantly limits the deployment of these solutions.In this thesis, I argue that mobile devices can infer a substantial amount of their context by leveraging their existing wireless interfaces to monitor ambient radio sources, such as GSM cell towers or WiFi access points. I focus on two important problems in context-aware computing: localization of mobile devices and detecting proximity between mobile devices for authentication purposes.Specifically, I present an accurate localization system based on fingerprinting of GSM signals. I show that the key to more accurate GSM localization is the use of wide signal strength fingerprints that include readings from a large number of base stations. Next, I present a method that addresses the key drawback of fingerprint-based localization systems---the need to collect extensive measurements to train the system in every target environment. Finally, I show how radio environment sensing can be used to secure the communication of devices that come within close proximity. Removing the need for additional hardware on the mobile devices and in the physical environment renders the approach that I present amenable for widespread deployment
New Classes of Conditional Toxins as Therapeutic Agents Against Breast Cancer ( )

During the three-year duration of this grant ((DAMD17-98-1-8042, the Idea Grant), we focused on the following projects: (1) Development of signal-regulated, cleavage-mediated toxins. During this time, we completed the work on the CUP9-mediated, HIV protease-dependent conditional toxins. A paper describing these results has been finished (its completion was delayed by difficulties in some of the necessary control experiments). This paper will be submitted for publication in the Fall of 2001. (2) We also carried out, during the first year of support, an extensive study whose major aim was to construct better portable degrons (degradation signals) that can be used, in particular, for designing conditional toxins. This effort was entirely successful. A paper describing these results was published at the end of 1999 (Suzuki & Varshavsky. Degradation signals in the lysine-asparagine sequence space. EMBO J. 18:6017-6026,1999). A reprint of the paper is enclosed. (3) In 1999, we also completed the construction of a bivalent inhibitor of the N-end rule pathway, a useful reagent for conditional-toxin projects, and published this new approach (Kwon & Varshavsky. Bivalent inhibitor of the N-end rule pathway. J. Biol. Chem. 274:18135-18139, 1999). (4) Other projects that encompass the subject of this grant have also been carried out. They were less successful, given a variety of technical difficulties that we encountered, at the Idea-Grant stage of the work
