|Authors||:||Onu, Fergus Uche (PhD) || Ibe, Walter Eyong || Eneji, Samuel Eneji (PhD)|
ABSTRACT: Electronic voting promises lots of benefits to the electoral systems to include, timely delivery of elections, minimize cost for running elections, minimize coercion and votes buying in elections, eliminate double/multiple votes cast by an electorate, reduce risks and violence associated with elections, etc. It is notable that electronic voting pave ways to so many security issues like any other cyber system. This paper examines the strengths and weaknesses of electronic voting and proffers possible means through which the online voting systems can be improved upon to overcome the associated security challenges. Conclusion was also discussed.

|Title||:||A Mobile Gamification English Vocabulary Learning System for Motivating English Learning|
|Authors||:||Olutayo Boyinbode || Adetayo Tiamiyu|
ABSTRACT: English learning in Nigeria has become imperative and its continuous learning cannot be waved, since it is the official language in Nigeria and an international language for communication. Despite the importance of English language, student's performance in English language in Nigerian secondary institutions has been discouraging. Research has shown that vocabulary is the most important element of any language learning including English language. This paper implemented a mobile gamification learning system for motivating learners to continue learning English vocabularies effectively on mobile devices. The system was evaluated, through an online survey, which was completed by 71 participants with different English vocabulary level abilities. Experimental results revealed that the developed system significantly improve learner's English vocabulary abilities and learning interests...

|Title||:||Market Stock Price Prediction Using Machine Learning|
|Authors||:||Vishal Dwivedi || Dr. Sheenu Rizvi || Dr.AnuradhaMisra|
ABSTRACT: Successful predictions of future stock will maximize the profit of the investors. The Prediction of the stock market is the task to determine the upcoming value of instrument traded on a company stock or financial exchange. The Report proposes a Simple AI model to foresee the stock value esteem. The proposed calculation incorporates molecule swarm advancement (PSO) and least help vector (LS-SVM). PSO calculation has been utilized to streamline LS-SVM to foresee costs of every day stock. The proposed model depends on the investigation of verifiable information and specialized pointers. The PSO calculations have been utilized to streamline LS-SVM to foresee of every day costs of day by day stock. The proposed model depends on the investigation of verifiable information and specialized markers. The PSO calculation chooses a blend of sans best parameters for LS-SVM....

ABSTRACT: The mathematical model of the blood pressure dynamics in the pulmonary circulation has been
developedand investigated the nature of its interaction with electrical dynamics of the heart in norm and in case
of pneumonia. The model dynamics of blood pressure in the right and left ventricles of the heart were described in the framework of phase-shifted solutions of the coupled the Van der Pol equations, modeling the ECG
pattern. In its turn, the dynamics of blood pressure in the pulmonary veins coming from the right ventricle of the heart and the pulmonary veins coming to the left ventricle were described in the framework of nonlinear differential equations of the second order. Taking into account the shift of initial phases in the dynamics of blood pressure in the right and left ventricles, the multipliers for conservative terms of differential equations
describing the dynamics...

ABSTRACT: This paper proposes an algorithm based on metaheuristic chemical reaction optimization and chaotic map for multiple-choice knapsack problem (MCKP). MCKP is a well-known NP-hard problem and it has a lot of applications in the real-world and theory. Chemical reaction optimization (CRO) is a new optimization approach mimic the chemical reaction process. In short, the CRO has been shown to be superior to many other approaches in both continues and discrete domain. The chaotic have strong points in generate random sequence when compare with traditional random function.The advantage of CRO for MCKP is that CRO used four types of search operator, chaotic map, and a penalty function to help the algorithm find optima solution fast and accuracy. The proposed method has shown better performance than the genetic algorithm in a large test set in solving MCKP.

ABSTRACT: Chunking is a natural language processing (NLP) applicationthatis used toidentify syntactically correlated parts of words in a text. It is the process of separates and segments the text into non-overlapping chunk. This separation and segmentation of text or sentence into chunk is recently considered as a major importance in NLP applications, especially in parsing,anaphora, information retrieval, question answering system, information extraction, named entity recognition and aspect-based sentiment analysis. This article was investigating the application of text chunking for Afaan Oromo language (AOL), using Conditional random fields and Support vector machine. AOL is an East Cushitic language; family of the Afro-Asiatic language and it is the most widely spoken language in Ethiopia. In our Experiment, we considered three different scenarios, such as word, part of speech....
