Abstract: A phenomenal growth in the number of credit card transactions, especially for on-line purchases, has also led to a substantial rise in fraudulent activities. Credit card fraudulent transactions are very easy to conduct, while very difficult to recover, compared to the fraud cases in hard-products transactions. In real life, fraudulent transactions could be interspersed with genuine transactions and simple pattern matching techniques are not often sufficient to detect the fraudulent transactions efficiently. Moreover, surrogate representations of identity can be easily forgotten, lost, guessed, stolen, or shared. Further it can be hacked through malicious websites or prone to security breaches. Implementation of efficient fraud detection systems has thus become imperative for all credit card companies in order to minimize their losses. In this paper, we propose a IRPV (Iris Recognition and Palm Vein) recognition technology which will help add even more security to existing biometric devices that may be susceptible to fraud. The techniques used are Palm vein technology, along with iris recognition. It is difficult to crack, because each person's vein pattern is unique. Thus, biometric systems impart higher levels of security when appropriately integrated into applications requiring user authentication. The experimental results show that the detection rate would prove 99.995% compared to traditional methods.

Index Terms - Credit Card Fraud, Iris Recognition, Palm Vein technology.

Title : A Fast Recognition Method for Pose and Illumination Variant Faces on Video Sequences
Country : India
Authors : Mahesh Prasanna K, Nagaratna Hegde

Abstract: Video face recognition is a widely used method in which security is essential that recognizes the human faces from subjected videos. Unlike traditional methods, recent recognition methods consider practical constraints such as pose and illumination variations on the facial images. Our previous work also considers such constraints in which face recognition was performed on videos that were highly subjected pose and illumination variations. The method asserted good performance however; it suffers due to high computational cost. This work overcomes such drawback by proposing a simple face recognition technique in which a cost efficient Active Appearance Model (AAM) and lazy classification are deployed. The deployed AAM avoids nonlinear programming, which is the cornerstone for increased computational cost. Experimental results prove that the proposed method is better than the conventional technique in terms of recognition measures and computational cost.

Keywords — Active Appearance Model (AAM), lazy classification, shape, model, appearance, recognition, computation.

Title : Signal Processing Approach for Recognizing Identical Reads From DNA Sequencing of Bacillus Strains

Abstract: DNA sequencing generates a large number of reads of lengths varying from 100bp to 1000bp, when sequenced using different methods of sequencing. These reads are further assembled to form contigs which are useful in annotation. The library generation using different amplification technique is involved in DNA sequencing process, which generates several identical reads, which are redundant, resulting in degraded quality of sequencing, besides also causing longer time for assembly. Existing computationally complex algorithms use string processing. The paper discusses the signal processing approach with application of Wavelet Transforms, designed to find exact and near exact identical reads. The string processing approach for pattern matching in search of similar patterns is computationally very expensive because the order of complexity of String comparisions is exponential in nature. Whereas Wavelet Transforms translates the sequence in co-efficients which are half of the length of the original sequence. On applying Wavelet Transforms repeatedly on the sequence, the sequence get transformed to half the length of the sequence used for transformations. Thus the order of complexity reduces to O(log n), which is much efficient compared to string processing.

Abstract: Cooperative communication has derived an interest for wireless network. Most existing works on cooperative communications are focused on link-level physical layer issues such as topology control, routing and network capacity are largely ignored Although there have been extensive studies on applying cooperative networking in multi-hop ad hoc networks, most works are limited to the basic three-node relay scheme and single-antenna systems. These two limitations are interconnected and both are due to a limited theoretical understanding of the optimal power allocation structure in MIMO cooperative networks (MIMO-CN) In Proposed system we use Cooperative diversity. It is a cooperative multiple antenna technique for improving or maximizing total network channel capacities for any given set of bandwidths which exploits user diversity by decoding the combined signal of the relayed signal and the direct signal in wireless multi hop networks.

Abstract: Switched capacitor (SC) based modulator is prone to various non-idealities; especially at the circuit designing stage where the integrator plays an important role and effects the overall performance of the sigma delta modulator. The non idealities take account of sampling jitter which includes the effect of switching circuitry, sampling noise. Opamp parameter include noise, finite dc gain, finite band width, slew rate, saturation voltage. Each non idealities is modeled mathematically and simulation is carried out in the MATALAB SIMULINK® environment with the help of sigma delta toolbox. The simulation analysis of each model is carried out individually. At last overall performance of the modulator with all nonidealities is carried out compared with the ideal modulator and satisfactory results were found out for second order sigma delta modulator for signal bandwidth of 4 KHz.

Abstract: Implementing innovative hardware feature is one of the techniques to increase processor performance. Branch Prediction is a strategy in computer architecture design, for mitigating the cost, usually associated with conditional branches. In this paper, the feasibility of a novel idea called predicate filter is being presented. The predicate filter acts like a preprocessor on the instruction prefetch queue to eliminate in advance the instructions that need not be executed because of invalid predicate. The simulation of the predicate filter design has been carried out, demonstrating the feasibility of predicate filter.

Keywords: predicate filter, branch prediction and instruction pipelining.

Abstract: The data owners directly read the contents of the database simply it breaks the privacy of the user's data. If the users access the database content directly then the confidentiality of the data owners has been violated. So both privacy and confidentiality of the database are considered to be a major problem. In the existing system the privacy information gets lost in large amount and does not provide any security mechanism. It is impossible to consider every possible inference and also drastically reduces the quality of the data. The proposed system considers the privacy information is more valuable both in research and business areas. So the data sharing is common in order to provide the data remain k-anonymous even after the updates. The proposed system includes a Commutative Homomorphic Encryption Scheme is used to make the data privacy and confidentiality of the database. This system provides the security of data using RSA algorithm. This system accepts precise inference only and suppresses the sensitive information in order to prevent inference. The proposed system has several important properties which overcomes the drawbacks of the existing system. The properties are anonymous authentication, privacy preservation, confidential access, anonymity maintenance, data management, secure computation, data integrity and also access control.

Abstract: Digital images are prone to a variety of noise. The varieties include Speckle noise, Gaussian noise, Salt and pepper noise. It is a difficult task to separate noise from an image while maintaining the desired information and quality of an image. To obtain significant results, various algorithms have been proposed. This paper deals with comparison of two approaches i.e. filtering approach and wavelet based approach accounting Peak Signal to Noise Ratio and Root Mean Square Error as performance parameters. This paper proves that Wavelet Transform method is very effective for all types of noise. Results of this paper have been simulated on MATLAB.

Abstract: This paper presents the review of paper currency recognition system. It is applied in various field such as foreign exchange, automatic selling of things and in banks. The recognition system mainly consists of three parts. The image of interest is first pre-processed by reducing dimensionality and extracting the feature by applying image processing toolbox of MATLAB, known as feature extraction. The second part is currency recognition, where classifier such as neural network is used. And lastly the result is displayed. Recognition ability depends on the currency note characteristics of particular country and extraction of features.

Keywords - Classifier , Currency recognition, Feature extraction, Foreign exchange, Preprocessing.

Abstract: Today it is almost impossible to retrieve information with a keyword search when the information is spread over several pages. The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning. Web personalization is the one application of semantic web usage mining. In this report we have explored comparison of various collaborative filtering techniques. Those techniques are memory based, model based and hybrid collaborative filtering. Our study shows that the performance of hybrid collaborative filtering technique is better than memory based and model based collaborative filtering technique. We have introduced normalization step, which will improve accuracy of traditional collaborative filtering techniques.

Title : Mining Approach for Updating Sequential Patterns

Abstract: We are given a large database of customer transactions, where each transaction consists of customer-id, transaction time, and the items bought in the transaction. The discovery of frequent sequences in temporal databases is an important data mining problem. Most current work assumes that the database is static, and a database update requires rediscovering all the patterns by scanning the entire old and new database. We consider the problem of the incremental mining of sequential patterns when new transactions or new customers are added to an original database. In this paper, we propose novel techniques for maintaining sequences in the presence of a) database updates, and b) user interaction (e.g. modifying mining parameters). This is a very challenging task, since such updates can invalidate existing sequences or introduce new ones.
