Paper Title:

Evaluation of Object Based Video Retrieval Using SIFT

Abstract:   In Video Retrieval system, each video that is stored in the database has its features extracted and compared to the features of the query image. The local invariant features are obtained for all frames in a sequence and tracked throughout the shot to extract stable features. Proposed work is to retrieve video from the database by giving query as an object. Video is firstly converted into frames, these frames are then segmented and an object is separated from the image. Then features are extracted from object image by using SIFT features. Features of the video database obtained by the segmentation and feature extraction using SIFT feature are matched by Nearest Neighbor Search (NNS). In this paper we have evaluated the proposed video retrieval system. The proposed method is better than previous video retrieval methods because it is invariant to illumination changes.

Paper Title:

Image Steganography tool using Adaptive Encoding Approach to maximize Image hiding capacity

Abstract:   Steganography is the art of hiding the fact that communication is taking place, by hiding information in other information. Many different carrier file formats can be used, but digital images are the most popular because of their frequency on the Internet. For hiding secret information in images, there exists a large variety of Steganographic techniques some are more complex than others and all of them have respective strong and weak points. The Least Significant Bit (LSB) insertion method is the most common and easiest method for embedding messages in an image. This paper work intends to give an overview of image Steganography, its uses and techniques along with an attempt to implement a basic image Steganographic model by using an adaptive encoding algorithm which attempts to maximize the embedding capacity of each pixel through LSB insertion method. The Implementation is named StegSan which also uses file compression and data encoding mechanisms to make the image more secure and less detectable.

Paper Title:

Efficient String Sorting Algorithms: Cache-aware and Cache-Oblivious 

Abstract:   Sorting is a process of rearranging a sequence of objects into some kind of predefined linear order. String data is very common and most occurring data type. Sorting a string involves comparison it character by character which is more time consuming than integer sorting. Also, sorting forms the basis of many applications like data processing, databases, pattern matching and searching etc. So implementing improvements to make it fast and efficient will help in reducing the computational time and thus making our applications run faster. This paper briefs about various fast and efficient string sorting algorithms. The algorithms have been divided into two categories: cache-aware and cache-oblivious. The various algorithms discussed are: CRadix Sort, Burstsort and cacheoblivious string sorting algorithm. The improvement in CRadix Sort is achieved by starting the sorting with the most significant digit and associating a small block of main memory called the key buffer to each key and sorting a portion of each key into its corresponding key buffer. Burstsort is a trie-based string sorting algorithm that distributes strings into small buckets whose contents are then sorted in cache. The cacheoblivious string sorting algorithm is a randomized algorithm for string sorting which uses signature technique (reduces the sequence by creating a set of “signatures” strings having the same trie structure as the original set) to sort strings.

Parametric Estimation of Software Systems

Abstract:   Software is characterised  by  software  metrics. Calculation of  effort  estimation  is  a  type  of  software  metrics. Software effort estimation plays a vital role in the development of software. In  recent  years,  software  has  become  the  most expensive component  of  computer  system  projects.  The  major part of cost of software development is due to the human-effort, and most cost estimation methods focus on this aspect and give estimates in terms of person-month. In this paper, estimation of effort required  for  the  development  of  software  project  is calculated using genetic algorithm approach. Software systems are  becoming  complex  and  they  desire  for  new,  effective  and optimized  technique  with  limited  resources. A  solution  to  this problem lies in nature where complex species have evolved from simple  organisms  and  constantly  become  able  to  adapt  to changes in the environment. In case of species, it takes hundreds of generations and years which are not considerable in the field of software engineering. With the use of genetic algorithm, it can be  done  instantly  by  simulating  the  results  on  various  tools  of genetic algorithm.

Multistage VQ Based GMM For Text Independent Speaker identification System

Abstract:   The use of Gaussian Mixture Models (GMM) are most common in speaker identification due to it can be performed in a completely text independent situation. However, it sounds efficient to speaker identification application, but it results long time processing in practice. In this paper, we propose a decision function by using vector quantization (VQ) techniques to decrease the training model for GMM in order to reduce the processing time. In our proposed modeling, we take the superiority of VQ, which is simplicity computation to distinguish between male and female speaker. Then, in second phase of classification, decision tree rule are applied to separate out the similar speaker in same gender into two difference group. While in phase 3, GMM is applied into the subgroup of speaker to get the accuracy rates. Experimental result shows that our hybrid VQ/GMM method always yielded better Improvements in accuracy and bring almost 20% reduce in time processing.

Paper Title:

To Reduce the False Alarm in Intrusion Detection System using self Organizing Map

Abstract:   Intrusion detection systems aim to identify attacks with a high detection rate and a low false alarm rate. Classification-based data mining models for intrusion detection are often ineffective in dealing with dynamic changes in intrusion patterns and characteristics. Consequently, unsupervised learning methods have been given a closer look for network intrusion detection. Traditional instance-based learning methods can only be used to detect known intrusions, since these methods classify instances based on what they have learned. They rarely detect new intrusions since these intrusion classes has not been able to detect new intrusions as well as known intrusions. In this paper, we propose a soft Computing technique such as Self organizing map for detecting the intrusion in network intrusion detection. Problems with k-mean clustering are hard cluster to class assignment, class dominance, and null class problems. The network traffic datasets provided by the NSL-KDD Data set in intrusion detection system which demonstrates the feasibility and promise of unsupervised learning methods for network intrusion detection

A Proposed Method for Image Retrieval using Histogram values and Texture Descriptor Analysis

Abstract:   Color and Texture information have been the primitive image descriptors in content based image retrieval systems. In this article, a method is proposed for image mining based on analysis of color Histogram values and texture descriptor of an image. For this purpose, three functions are used for texture descriptor analysis such as entropy, local range and standard deviation. To extract the color properties of an image, histogram values are used. The combination of the color and texture features of the image provides a robust feature set for image retrieval.

A Modified Method to Segment Sharp and Unsharp Edged Brain Tumors in 2 D MRI Using Automatic Seeded Region Growing Method

Abstract:   Segmentation of Brain tumor accurately is a challenging task in MRI. The MRI image is an image that produces a high contrast images indicating regular and irregular tissues that help to distinguish the overlapping in margin of each limb. But when the edges of tumor is not sharped then the segmentation results are not accurate i.e. segmentation may be over or under. This may be happened due to initial stage of the tumors [5]. So , in this paper a modified method of tumor line detection and segmentation is used to separate the irregular from the regular surrounding tissue to get a real identification of involved and noninvolved area that help the surgeon to distinguish the involved area precisely. The method used in this paper is seeded region growing method and it was implemented using MATLAB on 25 Magnetic Resonance Images to detect the tumor boundaries in 2D MRI for different cases.

An Open Source Framework for PRTF Protocol

Abstract:   Social networking websites contain vast amount of data inside them. Volume of data is enormous and growing at a very fast rate. Social network data can be classified in threemajor categories – user profile data, user communication data and group communication data. Data mining can be applied effectively to discover the knowledge and to extract the useful patterns from this gigantic data set, which is called as the social network mining. Person Related to a Field (PRTF) is a protocol to mine the information across all the social networking data, in general, and use the extracted pattern to search an expert in particular. It also proposes the mechanism to rank the searched experts. In this paper we propose an open source implementation of the PRTF (Person related to a Field) protocol. Using this proposed framework, apart from expert identification, number of useful patterns can be discovered from social networking data. The proposed framework is implemented using open source technologies and is explained with the help of an illustrative example.

Paper Title:

Design and Profile Optimization for Dispersion Shifted Fiber (DSF)

Abstract:   In designing of SM fibers, dispersion behavior is a major distinguishing feature which limits long distance and high speed transmission. Dispersion of SMF is lowest at 1.3 um, but the attenuation is minimum at 1.55 um. At 1.55um dispersion is higher. For achieving maximum transmission distance in a high capacity link ,dispersion null should be at the wavelength of minimum attenuation .This may be achieved by mechanisms like reduction in fiber core with an accompanying increase in the relative RI to create Dispersion Shifted Fibers (DCF) [3]. In the proposed work by optimizing the fiber profile a fiber with minimum dispersion slope at the desired wavelength will be carried out.

Analysis of Digitally Modulated Signals using Instantaneous and Stochastic Features, for Classification

Abstract:   Automatic modulation classification is a procedure performed at the receiver based on the received signal before demodulation when the modulation format is not known to the receiver. AMR is also believed to play an important role in the implementation of Software Defined Radio (SDR) of the 4th-Generation (4G) communication system. The ability to automatically select the correct modulation scheme used in an unknown received signal is a major advantage in a wireless network This paper describes one application that exploits the flexibility of a software radio. As compared to the previous work this approach uses stochastic features to distinguish modulated signals for varying Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). The proposed method is simple effective and robust. It is based on the stochastic features derived from instantaneous features to classify digital modulation signals.. This method is capable of differentiating ASK2, ASK4, FSK2, FSK4, PSK2 and PSK4 signals at the output of a typical high frequency channel with white Gaussian noise, Unlike most other existing methods, proposed method assumes no prior information of the incoming signal (symbol rate, carrier frequency, amplitude etc.). Extensive simulation results demonstrate that this approach is robust in various practical situations in identifying the modulated signals. When SNR is less than 5 dB, the percentage of correct identification is about 97%which increases to almost 100% for SNR 20db.

A Survey of Efficient Algorithms and New Approach for Fast Discovery of Frequent Itemset for Association Rule Mining (DFIARM)

Abstract:   The problem of mining association rules has attracted lots of attention in the research community. Several techniques for efficient discovery of association rule have appeared. With abundant literature published in research into frequent itemset mining and deriving association rules, if the question is raised that whether we have solved most of the critical problems related to frequent itemset mining and association rule discovery. Based on the scope of the recent literature, the answer will be negative. The most time consuming operation in discovering association rule, is the computation of the frequency of the occurrences of interesting subset of items (called candidates) in the database of transactions. Can one develop a method that may avoid or reduce candidate generation and test and utilize some novel data structures to reduce the cost in frequent pattern mining? This is the motivation of my study for mining frequent-itemsets and association rules. In this paper we review some existing algorithms for frequent itemset mining and present a proposal of our new approach.

Outlier Detection Using Support Vector Machine in Wireless Sensor Network Real Time Data

Abstract:   Outlier detection has many important applications in sensor networks, e.g., abnormal event detection, animal behavior change, intruder detection etc. Outliers in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are sensor nodes that issue attacks by abnormal behaviours and fake message broadcasting. The probable sources of outliers include noise and errors, events, and malicious attacks on the network. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are more likely to generate outliers due to their special characteristics, e.g. constrained available resources, frequent physical failure, and often harsh deployment area. In this project we motivate our technique in the context of the problem of outlier detection. This paper is going to present the real time network outlier detection method in the wireless sensor networks. We proposed the technique to classify the sensor node data as local outlier or cluster outlier or network outlier using Standard Support Vector Machine classification method which is one of the best classification methods among the various outlier detection methods. If the data is classified as network outlier then it may be due an event otherwise if it is classified as a cluster outlier then it is an error in the cluster due to some environmental factor or network otherwise is an error in the sensor node due to some defect in that sensor. Experiments with real data show that our methodis efficient and accurate to detect the outliers in real time. The real time data are collected from the Sensor Scope system and implemented using MATLAB.
