Abstract: Ant Colony System (ACS) is competitive with other nature-inspired algorithms on some relatively simple problems. This project proposes an ant colony optimization algorithm for tuning generalization of fuzzy rule. The use of Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for classification is investigated in depth, with the development of the AntMiner+ algorithm. AntMiner+ builds rule based classifiers, with a focus on the predictive accuracy and comprehensibility of the final models. The key differences between the proposed AntMiner+ and previous AntMiner versions are the usage of the better performing MAX-MIN ant system, a clearly defined and augmented environment for the ants to walk through, with the inclusion of the class variable to handle multi-class problems, and the ability to include interval rules in the rule list. Ant system is a general purpose algorithm inspired by the study of behavior of ant colonies. It is based on cooperative search paradigm that is applicable to the solution of combinatorial optimization problem. The institutions concern the routing network studies the application of data mining techniques for network traffic risk analysis. The proposed work aims at spatial feature of the traffic load and demand requirements and their interaction with the geo routing environment. In previous work, the system has implemented some spatial data mining methods such as generalization and characterization. The proposal of this work uses intelligent ant agent to evaluate the search space of the network traffic risk analysis along with usage of genetic algorithm for risk pattern.

Abstract : Plastic surgery provide a way to enhance the facial appearance. The non-linear variations introduced by the plastic surgery has raised a challenge for face recognition algorithms. In this research we match the face image before and after the plastic surgery. First generate non-disjoint face granules at multiple levels of granularity. The feature extractors are used to extract features from the face granules. The features are then processed by using principal component analysis (PCA) algorithm. Evaluate the weighted distance and match the pre and post surgery images based on weighted distance. The proposed system yield high identification accuracy and take less time for recognition as compared to the existing system.

Abstract : Reducing noise from the various images like Real images, medical images and satellite images etc. is a challenging task in digital image processing. Noises are removed as pre processing which are needed for image enhancement, restoration, compression, registration, analysis as well as feature extraction and texture analysis. Several approaches are there for noise reduction. The proposed filtering technique in this paper removes speckle noise from the real images effectively. Quantitative analysis is done by various measures like Noise Variance, Mean Square Error, Noise Mean Value, Noise Standard Deviation, Equivalent Number of Looks (ENL) and PSNR and the results exhibit the performance of the proposed filter.

Keywords: ENL, frost filter, lee filter, PSNR, Speckle noise, speckle filters

Abstract : Probabilistic topic models are used for analyzing and extracting content-related annotations from noisy annotated discrete data like WebPages on WWW and these WebPages are stored using social bookmarking services with the help of social bookmarking services, reason behind this process most of time users can attach annotations freely, some annotations do not describe the semantics of the content, therefore they are noisy, simply they are not content related. The extraction of content-related annotations can be used as a prepossessing step in machine learning. Prepossessing step in machine learning is like text classification and image recognition, and can improve information retrieval performance. The proposed model is a generative model for content and annotations, where annotations are assumed to be originated either from topics that generated the content or from a general distribution unrelated to the content. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method with the help of synthetic data and real social annotation data for text and images.

Abstract : The area of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is one of the fast growing and emerging field in the scientific and engineering world. It is an ad-hoc network that consists of small nodes with sensing, computing and communicating wireless abilities. These sensor nodes are densely deployed in the sensor field environments. The environment can be an Information Technological framework, a physical world, or a biological system.The main objective of WSN is to sense the crucial information from the environment depending on the type of application for which it is deployed and send this information to its Base Station (BS) so that it can take corrective actions. These Sensor Nodes communicate with each other via various Routing Protocols. Protocols in WSNs are broadly classified as Flat, Hierarchical and Location Based routing protocols. This paper presentshierarchical routing protocol, Power Efficient Gathering in Sensor Information Systems (PEGASIS) and a comparative study on various versions of PEGASIS protocols.

Title : Image Encryption Techniques using Fractal Geometry: A Comparative Study
Country : India
Authors : Swati Gupta , Nishu Bansal
: 10.9790/0661-16513135     logo

Abstract : Data security has become an important issue in recent times. Confidential data needs to be protected from unauthorized users. Various image encryption techniques have been proposed for the secure transmission of images to protect the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of images. Fractal images can be used as a strong key for the encryption due to the random and chaotic nature of fractals. The infinite boundaries of fractals provide highly complex structure that leads to confusion and it becomes a tedious task for an unauthenticated user to crack the exact secret fractal key. In this paper, a review of various techniques used for image encryption using fractal geometry has been illustrated. All these techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages in terms of execution time, key generation time and Peak Signal to Noise Ratio.

Country : Bangladesh

Abstract : Uterine cancer is one of the conspicuous cancers for women in both developed and developing countries including Bangladesh. Now, in the world it is the sixth most common cancer among women and fourteenth most common cancer overall. The high occurrence of uterine cancer in women has increased significantly in the last years. This involves many factors to be measured and evaluated, which are related to the signs and symptoms of this disease. These factors usually expressed in quantitative and qualitative ways. In addition, a hierarchical relationship exists among these factors. Since qualitative factors cannot be measured in a quantitative way, resulting various types of uncertainties such as incompleteness, vagueness, imprecision. Therefore, it is necessary to address the issue of uncertainty by using appropriate methodology; otherwise, the conclusion to detect uterine cancer will become inaccurate. There exist many systems to address the issue presented in this paper. However, none of them is able to address the issue of uncertainty. Therefore, this paper demonstrates the application of a novel method, named belief rule-based inference methodology-RIMER, which is capable of addressing the uncertainties in both clinical domain knowledge and clinical data. This paper reports the development of a Belief Rule Based Expert System (BRBES) using RIMER approach, which is capable of detecting the presence of uterine cancer by taking account of signs and symptoms. The system has been validated by using real patient data and it has been observed that the results generated by the BRBES are more reliable than the manual system usually carried out by a physician.

Abstract : In a Network we have various issues to work with our services & data (maintenances) & today Cloud computing provides convenient on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable enumerate resources. The resources can be rapidly expand with great efficiency and minimal management atop. Cloud is an afraid computing platform from the view point of the cloud users, the system must design structure that not only assure sensitive information by enabling computations with encrypted data, but also assure users from envious behaviours by permissive the validation of the computation result along with an effective authentication mechanism to the user, from the past timing we have a multiple scheme to authorize any interface- here also in order to access a cloud we use textual password which is not much secure in terms of authentication because textual password might be easy to guess & lot of brute force attack has been already done on textual based attack in current world so that still here we are finding an efficient way where we can get a reliable authentication to original user, one of the way which we got is object password or graphical password to authenticate interface which we have described in existing system In this paper, we propose a technique for authenticating cloud which is advance authentication scheme in terms of graphical password at the same time we are going to propose this scheme for using in cloud & in cloud how we can verify the data integrity which we are storing. It is high-speed data verification scheme with minimal loss probability. The proposed system is highly efficient in order to authenticate in proper manner in order to maintain login security & after authentication again to verify our data integrity correctly.

Abstract : Information retrieval is the process of retrieving all the relevant documents that satisfies the user query from large corpora. It is aimed to provide the relevant information and documents that matches the user query. Outcome of the several research results confirms that difficulties in information retrieval are matching the query with corpus. Consequently, the enhanced indexing technique named Document Index Graph (DIG) used for indexing document collection in order to match and retrieve information efficiently. Hence, an enhanced DIG has been constructed that stores all the stemmed sentences of documents in the graph. The words with same stem can be stored only once in DIG. This helps to reduce the size of the graph. The most frequently appearing words are planted into FP (Frequent Pattern) Tree. The FP-tree is a compact representation of all relevant frequently occurring information in a corpus. The enhanced FP tree with a table generates all types of possible term set which satisfy the minimum support. Information is retrieved with the help of FP-Tree and Document Index Graph.

Abstract : A new idea is proposed in this paper for improvement in the Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH) protocol. The cluster heads are selected based on the residual energy at each node at the end of each round. The expected number of cluster heads is kept stable considering the average residual energy of nodes which have not been cluster heads and the initial energy of a node. This work is carried out at each node level at the end of each round. Simulations are carried out considering the modified threshold function and the results are compared with the existing LEACH and family protocols.

Abstract : Concrete compressive strength prediction is very important in structure and building design, particularly in specifying the quality and measuring performance of concrete as well as determination of its mix proportion. The conventional method of determining the strength of concrete is complicated and time consuming hence artificial neural network (ANN) is widely proposed in lieu of this method. However, ANN is an unstable predictor due to the presence of local minima in its optimization objective. Hence, in this paper we have studied the performance of support vector machine (SVM), a stable and robust learning algorithm, in concrete strength prediction and compare the result to that of ANN. It is found that SVM displayed a slightly better performance compared to ANN and is highly stable.

Title : Feature subset selection for high dimensional data with domain analysis using semantic Mining
Country : India

Abstract : Feature subset selection involves identifying a subset of the most useful features that produces compatible results as the original entire set of features. A feature selection algorithm may be evaluated from both the efficiency and effectiveness points of view. While the efficiency concerns the time required to find a subset of features, the effectiveness is related to the quality of the subset of features. Current existing algorithms for feature sub set selection works only based on conducting statistical test like Pearson test or symmetric uncertainty test to find the correlation between the features and apply threshold to filter redundant and irrelevant features. FAST proposed by Qinbao Song [9] uses symmetric uncertainty test for feature subset selection. In this work we extend the FAST algorithm by applying the domain analysis using semantic Mining to improve the relevance of the feature subset selection.

Abstract : The development of a vibrant application for analyzing and predicting stock market prices is a basic tool aimed at increasing the rate of investors' interest in stock markets. This paper explains the development and implementation of a stock price prediction application using machine learning algorithm and object oriented approach of software system development. The algorithm was used in training a set of market data collected for the period of one thousand, two hundred and three days. The implementation was done with Java programming language and Neuroph software. From the experiments conducted and observed results from the application indicates a better predictive accuracy and high minimum error. When tested with Nestle Nigerian Plc. recorded a mean squared error (MSE) and regression (R) values of 61876e-6 and 0.99975 respectively, Guinness Nigerian Plc. recorded a mean squared error (MSE) and regression (R) values of 9.95839e-7 and 0.99853 respectively and Total Nigerian Plc. recorded a mean squared error (MSE) and regression (R) values of 8.03493e-6 and 0.992193 respectively.

Keywords: Machine learning, Supervised Learning, Regression value, Mean Square Error.
