Configure Windows PowerShell to Connect with O356

Posted on

Configuring Widnows PoserShell to be used with O365 is few steps process. To successfully run the Connect-MsolService PowerShell command, you need to:

  1. Find out what bitness your operating system is (x86 / 32-bit OR x64 / 64-bit). See Microsoft’s “Is my PC running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?” article for help.
  2. If necessary, install the appropriate bitness version of PowerShell 3.0
    Note 1: Windows6.0 is Windows Vista and Windows6.1 is Windows 7
    Note 2: If you get a message of “The update is not applicable to your computer.” during the install then either you downloaded the wrong version of you already have it installed
  3. Install the appropriate bitness version of the Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant for IT Professionals
  4. Install the appropriate bitness version of the Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell
    Note: If you get an error of “In order to install Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell, you must have Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant version 7.0 or greater installed on this computer.” and a resulting failed install, install the Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant for IT Professionals BETA (you shouldn’t need to uninstall the normal version but I would recommend it).
  5. Run the appropriate bitness version of PowerShell
  6. Run the Import-Module MSOnline PowerShell command
  7. Finally, run the Connect-MsolService PowerShell command

Note: When I say “the appropriate bitness version” I mean to use 64-bit if available.

Once gone through above steps seuccessfully, Run the cmdlet Get-Module and you should see list of all imported modules along with MsOnline module. As shown below:

On the other hand to find out open research areas in biometrics this short literature review is done. Read the rest of this entry »

h-Index and g-Index of Faculty Members, IICT

Image Posted on

Assignment: To calculate & analysis of g-index and h-index of Ph.D. Faculty Members of IICT, University of Sindh

Description of h-Index:

A scientist has index h if h of his/her N papers have at least h citations each, and the other (N-h) papers have no more than h citations each.

To calculate the h-index, the papers written by an academic are arranged in decreasing order of number of citations. The h index is where the number of papers equals the number of citations (beginning with the paper with the highest number of citations).

[Source: Wikipedia (2015-05-20)]

Description of g-Index:

g-index is a variant of the h-index, which takes into account the citation evolution of the most cited papers over time.

A set of papers has a g-index g if g is the highest rank such that the top g papers have, together, at least g^2 citations.
In another words, the g-index g is the largest rank (where papers are arranged in decreasing order of the number of citations they received) such that the first g papers have (together) at least g^2 citations.

For example, if 2 scientists have h-index 4, it may happen that one of them has published 4 papers which have 4 or more citations, while another scientist may have published 10 papers out of which 3 have more than 100 citations and the 4th paper has 4 citations, and the remaining have less than 4 citations.

In an attempt to offer a higher weighting to the second scientist who in aggregation has received greater than 304 citations for 10 papers, the g-index was proposed. Thus in our example, the first scientist has g-index=4, while the second scientist has g-index significantly higher.

Pillars of Semantic Web

Posted on

The Semantic Web is generally built on syntaxes which use URIs to represent data, usually in triples based structures: i.e. many triples of URI data that can be held in databases, or interchanged on the world Wide Web using a set of particular syntaxes developed especially for the task. These syntaxes are called “Resource Description Framework” syntaxes.

Based on the metadata, intelligent applications such as semantic portals can be created. Metadata creation includes two major parts. First, the ‘Ontologies’ and vocabularies used as the basis in metadata descriptions are defined. Second, the web resources are annotated with metadata conforming to the definitions.
