Research, Teaching, Advising, and Administration

A Statement of My Current Research, Teaching, Advising, and Administration

Wen-Chen Hu, Department of Computer Science, University of North Dakota

Computer science is an ever-changing discipline and I always try to keep up with it. My research started with programming languages and compilers when I was a graduate student in the 1980s. For my master thesis, I developed a LISP/PROLOG mixed language programming environment for AI (artificial intelligence) developers by writing about 20,000 lines of C code. Image storage and retrieval were the topics of my PhD study as I were supported by the US military research projects. In the mid-1990s, when the Web started blooming, I began working on the web data indexing, searching, and mining. I created an online image database based on a linear skeleton representation for my PhD research. Mobile/handheld computing is the next milestone of computer science because global shipments of smartphones had reached 1 billion in 2014 according to Gartner, a market research company. As the e-commerce gradually moved towards m-commerce in the early 2000s, mobile commerce and computing became my research focal points. My current research interests include handheld/mobile/smartphone/spatial/tablet computing, location-based services, web-enabled information system such as search engines and web mining, electronic and mobile commerce systems, and web technologies. In a nutshell, my current research interests include the following five areas:
  • Spatial computing: It is one of the location-based research and refers to the computing related to space including spatial data structures, spatial databases, spatial data mining, and spatial statistics. One of the spatial computing examples is to predict spatial trajectories.

  • Location-based research: It is research based on the geographical position of a mobile handheld device. A variety of research and applications can be found from this subject. One of the examples is to protect mobile data by using handheld usage pattern matching.

  • Mobile/handheld computing: Handheld computing is the programming for handheld devices such as smartphones, and it can be divided into two kinds of programming: client and server -side mobile/handheld programming, which are the development of software on handheld devices and server, respectively.

  • Web information retrieval: With that size of web data, it is virtually impossible to manage the Web with the traditional computer technologies. Therefore, how to effectively and efficiently retrieve information from the Web becomes a major research topic.

  • Web data mining: Web usage mining is used to discover interesting user navigation patterns, which can be used to improve web sites, e.g. web site (re)organizing, user behavior studies, making additional topic or product recommendations, etc.
I am also interested in working on mobile and electronic commerce system construction. This construction involves a wide variety of computer techniques and knowledge which include web interface studies, web-enabled database construction, and various web programming languages and tools, for example, AJAX, ASP.NET, CGI, CSS, HTML, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, etc. These areas are the most up-to-date research topics and I have published several articles for each area. I have published more than 100 refereed research papers, edited more than 10 books and conference proceedings, and solely authored a research book:
    Internet-enabled handheld devices, computing, and programming: mobile commerce and personal data applications
I strongly believe education is to help and guide students to become better (IT) persons by encouraging them to learn as much as possible, but avoiding punishing/failing students just because they are not able to achieve the educational goals. With or without textbooks, each course offered by me provides informative and interactive lecture notes and detailed and precise class instructions. Collectively, the lecture notes and instructions are more like a small book, which supplies much more information than regular notes do. Students highly praised the second-to-none lecture notes as they were of great help to their learning. Some of them even use the notes while they work for the industry after graduation. Other than effective learning, fairness is the principle utmostly held in my classes. Students receive the grades they deserve solely based on how well they accomplish in the classes according to the class instructions provided. In addition, the educational experience of “learn by practicing” is important to me. All my classes and students have to do hands-on lab works and projects as well as subject studies, all of which use up-to-date and state-of-the-art knowledge and technologies and will pave the way for students’ future careers. I have been teaching at the US universities for about 20 years. The following list shows a range of courses being taught by me:
  1. CSci 250 Computer Organization and Programming
  2. CSci 260 .NET and Web Programming
  3. CSci 351 Introduction to File Processing
  4. CSci 370 Computer Architecture

Research Interests

Current Topics



LBS Privacy Preservation
“Privacy-preserving spatial trajectory prediction based on a matrix representation”
Spatial trajectory prediction requires a complicated processing of routes (lists of locations) such as travel route collection, storage, indexing, transmission, and matching. This research makes spatial trajectory prediction simple and effective by using an innovative matrix representation for routes. At the same time, user privacy is fully protected because the matrix representation allows the trajectories to be predicted at the mobile clients instead of the server. By using our method, travel route processing becomes matrix processing, which is well documented and includes a variety of tools and methods. This research is useful and popular and is related to a couple of subjects such as mobile computing and security, location-based services, and human behavior recognition.

Spatial Trajectory Prediction
“Spatial trajectory prediction based on traffic flows”
Inertia has a moving object follow a path or trajectory that resists any change in its motion. Human travel patterns normally have the similar inertia feature. For example, the vehicles on a highway usually stay on the highway or people tend to walk towards a popular destination such as a mall or park. This research proposes a location-based service, spatial trajectory prediction, which is to predict the forthcoming locations of the human travel routes. It could be used in a variety of purposes such as travel recommendations and traffic control and planning. The proposed method is based on the previous traffic flows, a weighted graph. It predicts the spatial trajectory by finding a path with a maximal weight and within a length. A modified algorithm of the longest path is used to find the maximum-weight path. If the length of the path is over the limit specified by the user, the next maximum-weight path is used and the length is checked again. The process is repeated if necessary. Experimental results show the proposed method works, but further tests are needed to validate its effectiveness.


Green Computing
“Location-aware online map caching and prefetching for mobile handheld devices”
Map navigation is one of the most popular applications used by mobile users. To save the transmission time and reduce the delay, online mobile map navigation caches or prefetches maps by using various methods such as most-recently used and first-in, first-out algorithms. However, the mobility and location features of mobile users are usually left out by these methods. Caching and pre-fetching maps based on a mobile user’s locations would greatly reduce the transmission time and hence the battery power consumption. For example, if a user is visiting a town, prefetching the maps of nearby interesting stores and caching the maps of the visited, neighboring landmarks would help the user’s visitation and save the transmission time. The number of smartphone sales is expected to surpass the one of PCs and servers in the near future and it is predicted that more people will use smartphones than PCs or notebooks to browse the Internet in 2013. Despite the bright future of smartphones, they are not without problems, especially the short battery life. This research tries to relieve the problem by using location-aware online map caching and prefetching for saving battery power.

Location-Based Services
“Route anomaly detection using incremental location searching”
Since the introduction of iPhone in 2007, smartphones have become very popular. The high mobility of smartphones has created many applications that are not possible or inconvenient for PCs and servers, even notebooks. One of the mobile applications, location-based services (LBS), has attracted great attention recently. This research proposes location-based research, which uses location information to find route anomalies, a common problem of daily life. For example, an alert should be generated when a school bus misses part of a route. Different kinds of route anomalies are discussed and various methods for detecting the anomalies are proposed in this research. The major methods use a technique of incremental location search, which finds matched routes as the search route is entered location by location. An alert is generated when no matched routes exist. Preliminary experiment results show the proposed methods are effective and easy-to-use.

Handheld/Mobile Security
“Smartphone data protection using handheld usage pattern matching”
Handheld devices like smartphones must include rigorous and convenient handheld data protection in case the devices are lost or stolen. This research proposes a set of novel approaches to protecting handheld data by using usage pattern matching, which compares the current handheld usage pattern to the stored usage patterns. If they are drastic different, a security action such as requiring a password entry is activated. Various algorithms of pattern matching can be used in this research. Two of them are discussed in this research: (i) approximate usage string matching and (ii) usage finite automata. The first method uses approximate string matching to check device usage and the second method converts the usage tree into a deterministic finite automaton (DFA). Experimental results show this method is effective and convenient for handheld data protection, but the accuracy may need to be improved.

Handheld Computing
“Internet-enabled mobile handheld devices for mobile commerce”
The emergence of wireless and mobile networks has made possible the introduction of electronic commerce to a new application and research area: mobile commerce. Internet-enabled mobile handheld devices are one of the core components of a mobile commerce system, making it possible for mobile users to directly interact with mobile commerce applications. Much of a mobile user’s first impression of the application will be formed by his or her interaction with the device, therefore the success of mobile commerce applications is greatly dependent on how easy they are to use. This research first explains the role of handheld devices in mobile commerce systems and then discusses the devices in detail. A mobile handheld device includes six major components: (i) a mobile operating system, (ii) a mobile central processor unit, (iii) a microbrowser, (iv) input/output devices, (v) a memory, and (vi) batteries.

World Wide Web Usage Mining
“World Wide Web usage mining systems and technologies”
Web usage mining is used to discover interesting user navigation patterns and can be applied to many real-world problems, such as improving web sites/pages, making additional topic or product recommendations, user/customer behavior studies, etc. This research studies and analyzes current web usage mining systems and technologies. A web usage mining system performs five major tasks: (i) data gathering, (ii) data preparation, (iii) navigation pattern discovery, (iv) pattern analysis and visualization, and (v) pattern applications. Each task is explained in detail and its related technologies are introduced and a list of major research systems and projects concerning web usage mining is also presented.

World Wide Web Search Engines
“World Wide Web search engines”
The World Wide Web now holds more than 25 billion pages covering almost all daily issues. The Web’s fast growing size and lack of structural style present a new challenge for information retrieval. Traditional search techniques are based on users typing in search keywords which the search services can then use to locate the desired web pages. However, this approach normally retrieves too many documents, of which only a small fraction are relevant to the users’ needs. Furthermore, the most relevant documents do not necessarily appear at the top of the query output list. Numerous search technologies have been applied to web search engines; however, the dominant search methods have yet to be identified. This research studies the existing technologies for web search engines and classifies them into six categories: (i) hyperlink exploration, (ii) information retrieval, (iii) metasearches, (iv) SQL approaches, (v) content-based multimedia searches, and (vi) others.

Image Databases
“An image retrieval system based on a linear skeleton representation”
Efficient storage and flexible retrieval are two principal needs in an image database. Image representation is the crucial factor in fulfilling these representations. This research proposes an image representation, including an image data structure and a spatial knowledge representation, that will facilitate the above two demands. The proposed data structure, called a line string, encodes an image via a string of linear skeleton and retrieves an image through string matching. The proposed spatial representation, called an OOLS, provides a structural and easy way to specify the line string in a database query. The research calculates the number of spatial relations held by a line string through a theorem. It also compares space needs and matching speed of line strings to other string data structures. It shows that a line string exhibits advantages over other structures but may require more storage and retrieval time.

Compiler Construction
“A Lisp/Prolog mixed language programming environment”
The Lisp and Prolog are two languages that are widely used for AI (artificial intelligence) development. However, both languages are not adequate for the AI researchers’ demands. As a result, an implementation which combines Lisp with Prolog would be extremely useful to AI researchers. This research presents a basis for constructing multi-language programming environments which integrate the logic language of Prolog into the procedural language Lisp. First of all, we set up the software facilities of the system; they include a Unix-like editor, a Lisp compiler, a Prolog compiler, a heap storage management system, and a POPLOG virtual machine for which both compilers generate code. Then we combine the Lisp machine with the Prolog machine by transferring the data structure and the sequence control of a compiled mixed language program from one machine to the other. With this mulit-language system, a programmer can then freely use the Lisp or Prolog language to develop any software desired.
