Personalized Image Search

Abstract:  Personalized Search is a feature in which when a user is logged into a account, all of his or her searches on Personal Search are recorded into  Web History. Then, when a user performs a search, the search results are not only based on the relevancy of each web page to the search term, but the service also takes into account what websites the user previously visited through search results to determine which search results to determine for future searches, to provide a more personalized experience. The feature only takes effect after the user has performed several searches, so that it can be calibrated to the user's tastes. Social sharing websites like facebook, twitter, YouTube they are allowing user to comment, tag, like and unlike the shared documents or images. Rapid Increase in the search services for social websites has been developed.

FPGA Implementation of Single Precision Floating Point Multiplier using High Speed Compressors

Abstract:  Floating point multiplier is one of the vital concerns in every digital system.  In this paper, the concepts of High speed compressors are used for the implementation of a High speed single precision binary Floating point multiplier by using IEEE 754 standard. Since compressors are special kind of adder which is capable to add more number of bits at a time, the use of these compressors makes the multiplier faster as compared to the conventional multiplier. For Mantissa calculation, a 24×24 bit multiplier has been developed by using these compressors. Owing to these high speed compressors, the proposed multiplier obtains a maximum frequency of 1467.136MHz. It is implemented using Verilog HDL and it is targeted for Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA.

USB Keyboard Security Unit

Abstract:   Every user has its specific rhythm of typing which could be used as a biometrics in order to build some kind of "footprint" – unique profile. If somebody gets to know this profile, legitimate user is endangered by tracking and being impersonated. That is the way typing rhythm must be protected. We designed a hardware-based device in order to protect the identity of the individual during usage of keyboard (typing). The unit is plugged between the keyboard and the personal computer and works as an interface modifying data on the fly in the model "man in the middle". Thanks to these modifications, an adversary who eavesdrops communication between a legitimate user and workstation gets practically no information about the "keystroking identity" of user. The security unit is based on two microprocessors: AVR AT90USB1287 working as USB Host - simulating workstation and AVR Atmega88 working as USB Device - simulating virtual keyboard. In the paper we present technical details of the security unit including electronic schemes and PCB referring to previously designed protection algorithms and results of performed efficiency tests as well.

Comparison of Repeating Pattern Extraction Techniques for Audio Pitch Detection

Abstract:    Music separation methods are more demanding and complex, demanding system “training,” user designation of special music features, and audio processing time to support their complicated frameworks. Pattern extraction from music strings is an complex problem. The repeated sequence extracted from music strings can be used as features for music extracted or compared. various works on music pattern extraction only focus on exact repeating patterns. However, music segments with minor differences may sound similar. Present the REpeating Pattern Extraction Technique (REPET), a novel and simple approach for separating the repeating “background” from the non-repeating “foreground” in a mixture. The basic idea is to identify the periodically repeating segments in the audio, compare them to a repeating segment model derived from them, and extract the repeating patterns via time-frequency masking. But in proposed  system doesn’t support the Small rhythmic patterns, but  rhythmic patterns are essential for the balance of the music, and can be a way to identify a song. And enhanced a method to extract a monophonic rhythmic signature from a symbolic polyphonic score. To go beyond the simple extraction of all time intervals between onsets we select notes according to their length (short and long extractions) or their intensities (intensity+/− extractions). Once the frequency is calculated, now use dynamic programming to compare several sequences of audio.

The Discrete Poisson-Janardan Distribution with Applications

Abstract:     In the present paper a discrete Poisson-Janardan distribution (PJD), of which the Sankaran’s (1970) discrete Poisson-Lindley distribution (PLD) is a particular case, has been obtained by compounding Poisson distribution with the Janardan distribution of Shanker et al (2013). The first four moments of this distribution have been obtained and the estimation of its parameters using the method of maximum likelihood and the method of moments has been discussed. The distribution has been fitted to some data-sets to test its goodness of fit and its fitting of two data sets has been presented.

A New Approach for Dealing with Uncertain Degree in Group Judgment Aggregation using Triangular Intuitionistic Fuzzy Numbers

Abstract:      The goal of this paper is to propose a new approach for aggregating group judgment using the triangular intuitionistic fuzzy number (IFN). The original group decision making (GDM) problems are converted to a triangular intuitionistic fuzzy decision making model by adding one simple conversion step which generates triangular IFNs from the mean and deviation of group judgment values to the process of GDM methods and inherits existing techniques. Using of triangular IFNs to express group judgment aggregation values keeps completely the information after aggregating and reflects evaluation more truthfully. Consequently, the application of the proposed model helps improve the efficiency and accuracy of GDM methods. In addition, an illustrative example is also presented in order to put this process in detail and comparing with conventional methods.

Design and Implementation of GUI Package for the Muscle Diseases Recognition Based on EMG Signals

Abstract:       An artificial neural network (ANN) provides a comprehensive and specialized service for the diagnosis and care of muscle diseases. Medical consultations are offered at the neuromuscular clinics, which are staffed by neurologists with special expertise in muscle diseases. This work presents the design and implementation of muscle diseases detection based on real electromyography (EMG) signals. This paper consists of three main parts. The first part presents the measurement of the signals of real human arm muscles (EMG signal). The data are then rearranged and recorded using EMGLab software. Surface electrodes are used to measure the real EMG signals. The suitable features of signal are extracted for classification. The second part applies signal requirements, such as filtering amplification and normalization, using MATLAB or any software. Muscle diseases were classified using an ANN package based on the features of EMG signals, amplitude of signals, and period of signals to identify the diseases. The third part explains the design of the graphical user interface based on MATLAB to implement the classification on real EMG signals. Satisfactory results are obtained from numerous executions with different cases of human arm muscles, thus ensuring the feasibility of this design for practical implement in hospitals or private clinics.

Paper Title:

Image Copy Move Forgery Detection using Block Representing Method

Abstract:  As one of the most successful applications of image analysis and understanding, digital image forgery detection has recently received significant attention, especially during the past few years. At least two trend account for this: the first accepting digital image as official document has become a common practice, and the second the availability of low cost technology in which the image could be easily manipulated. Even though there are many systems to detect the digital image forgery, their success is limited by the conditions imposed by many applications. Most existing techniques to detect such tampering are mainly at the cost of higher computational complexity. In this paper, we present an efficient and robust approach to detect such specific artifact. Firstly, the original image is divided into fixed-size blocks, and discrete cosine transform (DCT) is applied to each block, thus, the DCT coefficients represent each block. Secondly, each cosine transformed block is represented by a circle block and four features are extracted to reduce the dimension of each block. Finally, the feature vectors are lexicographically sorted, and duplicated image blocks will be matched by a preset threshold value. In order to make the algorithm more robust, some parameters are proposed to remove the wrong similar blocks. Experiment results show that our proposed scheme is not only robust to multiple copy-move forgery, but also to blurring or nosing adding and with low computational complexity.

Heterogeneous Parallel Programming

Abstract:   This paper presents Heterogeneous Parallel Computing (HPC), which is a well-orchestrated and co-ordinated effective use of a suite of diverse high performance machines to provide super-speed processing for computationally demanding tasks with diverse computational needs. GPUs are accoutered with a much more throughput oriented design as compared to that of the CPUs thus making them a powerful alternative to boast overall performance. It is now used all the way from mobile computing to supercomputing, like in Blue Star Super Computers. Upcoming Exascale and Petascale systems have embraced even heterogeneity in order to overcome power limitations. This paper also illustrates programming example using CUDA C to demonstrate the efficiency achieved in problems like matrix multiplication using a more heterogeneous approach as compared to that of sequential approach. It also explains how Heterogeneous Parallel Programming is a plausible, novel technique which allows to exploit inherent capabilities of a wide range of computational machines to solve computationally intensive problems that have several types of embedded parallelism by breaking it into separate modules. This paper also puts light on the challenges and concerns which exist when programming in HPC environment and some techniques to alleviate them.

Software Effort Estimation for Size Proxy Metric Framework Modelling using Software Estimation Models and Neuro Fuzzy Logic Approach

Abstract: As software grew in size and requirements it also successively grew in complexity and cost. Evaluating size estimates accurately at an initial stage in the software conglomeration is of high priority. Conventional techniques have the problems of uncertainty and precision during the evaluation of size estimates. Software engineering cost models and estimation techniques are used for a number of purposes. In our work we have compared the results using three function point based effort estimation models. We have also compared MMRE, MMER, MRE, MER values by training the dataset using neuro-fuzzy logic based machine learning aapproach which overcomes the problems present in the traditional methods. In this paper effort estimates has been obtained by modeling and training  the size metric framework. The dataset trained in our work is for 100 projects .

Performance Analysis of CSTR using Adaptive Control

Abstract:  In industry nowadays the control of chemical process is important task. Mostly all the chemical processes are highly nonlinear in nature and this causes instability of process. This paper presents the performance evaluation on the application of model reference adaptive control with various types of command inputs in a process plant. In the design of model reference adaptive control (MRAC) scheme, adaption law have been developed based on MIT and Lyapunov rule. This paper deals with basic simulation studies of the Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR). The mathematical model is   developed   from   material    balances.   Numerical mathematics is used for steady-state analysis and dynamic analysis which is usually represented by a set of differential equations.A  simulation  is  carried  out  using  Mat  Lab  and Simulink to  control  the process system using  the  adaptive control algorithm. It is also concluded that the adaptive controller will be superior to the conventional controller even without parameters change in the process. In a real world situation, these parameters could be estimated by using simulations or real execution of the system. It may be possible to improve the performance of the adaptive controller by further modifying the adaptation law or by incorporating parameter identification into the control.

Unicode Mizo Character Recognition System Using Multilayer Neural Network Model

Abstract:   The current investigation presents an algorithm and software to detect and recognize pre-printed mizo character symbol images. Four types of mizo fonts were under investigation namely – Arial, Tohoma, Cambria, and New Times Roman. The approach involves scanning the document, preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction, classification & recognition and post processing. The multilayer perceptron neural network is used for classification and recognition algorithm which is simple and easy to implement for better results. In this work, Unicode encoding technique is applied for recognition of mizo characters as the ASCII code cannot represent all the mizo characters especially the characters with circumflex and dot at the bottom. The experimental results are quite satisfactory for implementation of mizo character recognition system.

Paper Title:

Multi- Objective Genetic Algorithm for De Novo Drug Design

Abstract:     Genetic algorithms, can be used to solve NP-hard problems in various domains, including computer-aided drug design (CADD). As design & development of a drug molecule takes a number of man years and is also an expensive process, use of computer-aided techniques could help to reduce the time required and the cost of developing drugs. De novo drug design (DNDD) is one of the CADD technique used to design drug-like molecules virtually from smaller fragments/building blocks. This paper proposes a multi-objective genetic algorithm for the de novo design of novel molecules similar to a known reference molecule, possessing drug-like properties from a given set of input fragments and reference molecules. It could be used to design a variety of other virtual drug-like molecules by varying the input fragments and reference molecules based on the user requirement.

Investigation of the AVR Output Voltage Limits in Power System Voltage Stability Assessment

Abstract: Voltage stability problems have been one of the major concerns for electric power utilities due to increased interconnections and loading of the present day power systems. The accurate representation of the voltage instability phenomena requires a detailed model of power system components (generators, transformers, loads, etc.). On the other hand, reactive power generation limits have a significant effect on voltage collapse. In general, the system equations change non-smoothly when these limits are encountered. This paper presents a continuation-based method to steady-state voltage stability analysis that considered complete model of power system and the automatic voltage regulator (AVR) output voltage limits that indirectly control the reactive power generation limits. Results are provided for the New England 39-bus power system model. By comparing results obtained through this method and the continuation power flow (CPF) method, it is concluded that for design and developing the power systems, using proposed method seems a better approach due to its higher accuracy.

Inducing Stepping- Like Movement by Controlling Movement Primitive Blocks Using Intraspinal Microstimulation

Abstract:  Recently, intraspinal microstimulation (ISMS) has been developed as a potential technique for restoring the motor function in paralyzed limbs. It has been shown that that there are functional units in the spinal cord (i.e., motor pools, motor primitives) that generates a specific motor output by selecting a specific pattern of muscle activation. Dynamics identification of these spinal primitives is a critical issue in rehabilitation the motor function using spinal microstimulation. In this paper, we have triggered the motor primitives by electrical microstimulation of the interneuron networks within the spinal cord. The major challenge in generating Walking cycles is finding suitable patterns to stimulate each primitive. By using EMG of normal walking we have tuned patterns of each primitive but this procedure is too time-consuming, thus we have applied closed-loop control using neuro-adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control. The results show both procedures can reconstruct walking, But in closed-loop procedure we tune little controller parameters once. Whereas in open loop procedure for each animal different pattern must be find.

Content Based Filtering In Social Networking Sites Using Web Apllication

Abstract:   In consideration to the today’s globalized world everybody in the society are being addicted in using the Social Networks Sites.The basic problem that we are gonna be seen in using these sites is “Lack Of Privacy”.  Till today, Social Networks Sites provide little support to this requirement. To sort out this problem, in this project we are proposing a system which will provide the indirect control to the users of these sites .This proposed model can be achieved through a modern rule-based system, that allows administrators to customize the filtering criteria to be applied to their walls, and a Machine Learning based soft classifier automatically labeling messages in support of content-based filtering.

Efficient Item Image Retrieval System

Abstract:    Content based image retrieval system is a very effective means of searching and retrieving similar images from large database. This method is faster and easy to implement compare to text based image retrieval method. Ability to extract discriminative low level feature from these images and use them with appropriate classifier is factor in determining retrieval result. In this work efficient item image retrieval system is proposed. The system utilizes Haar wavelet transform, Phase Congruency and Support Vector Machine. Haar wavelet transform acted on image to form four sub-images. Texture feature is extracted from smaller image blocks from detailed bands and it was combined with shape feature from approximation band to form feature vector. Feature distance margin is achieved between query image and images in the database using Support Vector Machine (SVM). The effectiveness of the system is confirmed from output retrieval results.

A Synthesized Approach for Comparison and Enhancement of Clustering Algorithms in Data Mining for Improving Feature Quality

Abstract:     K-Means and Kohonen SOM clustering are two major analytical tools for unsupervised forest datasets. However, both have their innate disadvantages. Clustering is currently one of the most crucial techniques for dealing with massive amount of heterogeneous information on the databases, which is beyond human being’s capacity to digest. Recent studies have shown that the most commonly used partitioning-based clustering algorithm, the K-means algorithm, is more suitable for large datasets. Also, as clusters grow in size, the actual expression patterns become less relevant. K-means clustering requires a specified number of clusters in advance and chooses initial centroids randomly; in addition, it is sensitive to outliers. SOM We present an improved approach to combined merits of the two and discard disadvantages.

Matrix Representation of Groups In the Finite Fields GF(2n)

Abstract:  The representation of mathematical fields can be accomplished by binary rows (or columns) of a binary triangular matrix as the Hamming’s matrices, but this representation don’t show the basic product properties of the fields, that is the nonzero elements of the fields forms a cyclic multiplicative  group.In this paper we show that the elements of the fields GF(2n), and their subgroups,  can represent as square matrices by m – sequences, which satisfies the product properties as a cyclic group.

XSR: Novel Hybrid Software Development Model (Integrating XP, Scrum & RUP)

Abstract:   Software industries are progressively adopting the agile development practices of customized models such as Extreme Programming (XP) or Scrum or Rational Unified Process (RUP). Scrum and Extreme Programming (XP) are frequently used agile models, whereas Rational Unified Process (RUP) is one popular classic plan driven software development methodology.  Both agile and plan driven models have their own merits & demerits such as XP has good engineering practices, team collaboration and on the other hand weak documentation, poor performance in medium & large scale projects. Scrum is based on project management practices. RUP model has some limitations such as impractical for small and fast paced projects, tendency to be over budgeted, condemn rapid changes in requirements.  This research paper based on propose novel hybrid framework XSR by combining strengths of Scrum, XP and RUP by suppressing their limitations to produce high quality software.

A Genetic Approach to Parameterization of Feature Extraction Algorithms in Remote Sensing Images

Abstract:       Genetic Algorithms (GA) are an adaptive heuristic search algorithm found on the evolutionary ideas of natural selection. In this paper, we propose an adaptive heuristic based on the Gabor Filter (GF) to generate useful solutions to optimization of parameter selection strategies for Feature Extraction Algorithms (FEA) in Remote Sensing Images. Experiments were done using computer simulations and a critical analysis on performance of the heuristic algorithm is done in a comparative manner with the rest of the algorithms.

Monte Carlo Simulation on Estimation of Contact Pressure at Tubular Exchanger

Abstract:     The strength of tube-to-tubesheet joints is influenced by many factors such as method of attachment, details of construction, and material properties. The strength of tube-tubesheet joints is measured in terms of the force required to pull or push the tube out of the hole in which it was expanded or by the radial interfacial residual contact pressure. In this paper, Monte Carlo method was conducted to estimate the tube/tubesheet mean interfacial pressure and its standard deviation using experimental sample data Sampling repetition were conducting to estimate the mean and standard deviation. Finally, a linear relation between force and contact pressure were introduced with the coefficient of determination, R2 of 0.9895..

A Survey on Location Based Services in Data Mining

Abstract:      Data privacy has been the primary concern since the distributed database came into the picture. More than two parties have to compile their data for data mining process without revealing to the other parties. Continuous advancement in mobile networks and positioning technologies have created a strong challenge for location-based applications. Challenges resembling location-aware emergency response, location-based advertisement, and location-based entertainment. Privacy protection in pervasive environments has attracted great interests in recent years. Two kinds of privacy issues, location privacy and query privacy, are threatening the security of the users. The novel combined clustering algorithm for protecting location privacy and query privacy, namely ECC, is discussed. ECC applies an iterative K-means clustering method to group the user requests into clusters for providing location safety while utilizing a hierarchical clustering method for preserving the query privacy.

Web Services and Security

Abstract:       The vision of a landscape of heterogeneous web services deployed as encapsulated business software assets in the Internet is currently becoming a reality as part of the Semantic Web. When pro-active agents handle the context-aware discovery, acquisition, composition, management of applications services and data, ensuring the security if customers data become a principle task. In this paper we propose neoteric way web services and security. A methodology based on type-based information flow to control the security of dynamically computed data and their proliferation to other web services. The approach is based on the following trine guidelines: (1)The business and security concern of integrated web services are separated and building them independently.(2)Runtime modification of integrated web services.(3)Providing compartmentalization so that one service can not affect another. We are developing flight system to demonstrate the feasibility of our approach.

A Method of Color Image Denoised and  Enhanced Using Wavelet Transform

Abstract:        The objective of the image enhancement  is  to remove the noise. Real color images are images with noise. In traditional image enhancement algorithms color images are firstly converted to gray images. These algorithms enhanced noise while they enhanced image. In this paper wavelet transform is used for color image enhancement.  Wavelet transform is an efficient tool to represent a multi resolution analysis of an image. A novel method of color image enhancement based on Hue invariability in HIS color pattern is presented here.

Moving Object Detection using Differential Evolution

Abstract:     Moving Object detection is the process of detecting a change in position of an object relative to its surroundings or the change in the surroundings relative to an object. Different complex algorithms are employed to detect a moving object in a video. It has large number of applications in video surveillance and other security systems that are used to process video information. We have achieved it using Differential Evolution (DE). The proposed method is successfully tested over two video sequences.

IT Project Management According To the PMBoK Adaptation and Application in a Set of Computing Projects in a Moroccan Public Body

Abstract:      With the growth of the computing projects and the limited visibility by the administrators regarding the use of the resources as well as the technologies which lead to the abundance of projects, along with the trend to the subcontracting in external suppliers, the project management becomes the key function (office) for the success of all the technical projects. So the Project Management Body Of Knowledge (Guide PMBOK)) of PMI  (Project Management Institute) is in phase to become an essential tool for the practitioners in all organizations and business sectors.The main axis of this article is the PMBoK’s analysis and modeling in order to reach a uniform model of project management. The obtained model will be projected on a set of projects within a Moroccan public department. Let's recall that the PMBoK defines the project management in terms of: integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communication, risk, procurement and the stakeholders of the project.

Paper Title:

Caries Detection Technique for Radiographic and Intra Oral Camera Images

Abstract:       In the modern times, caries is one of the most prevelent disease of the teeth in the whole world. A large percentage of population is affected by them. Dentists try their level best to identify the problem at an earlier stage, but, with poor dentist to patient  ratio , the problem becomes compounded. To provide them a helping hand various machines and techniques are developed. Prominent among them is the DIFOTI(digital imaging fiber-optic transillumination) technique, but it  requires very expensive machinery to work with which can not be afforded by most of the dentists. We are proposing a method that can provide the needed diagnostic help without requiring the kind of machinery currently in use. We have used image processing technique to identify the caries that provide the dentists with the precise results about caries and the area affected. This method can detect caries in radiographic images as well as in intra oral camera images. This will not only help in countering the low man power problem but will also provide an accurate and cost effective method in identifying and treating caries.

Cooperative Mobile Robotics

Abstract:       “Cooperative control” is a term which is used to capture those problem areas in which some type of repetition of identical or non-identical subsystems, which are interconnected together, occurs. Such systems are often found in nature, i.e. in the motion of clusters of birds, fish, insects, etc. moving together, in the cell structure of mammals and life-forms, and also in the man-made systems such as in transportation systems. In such systems, a decentralized control configuration is often applied to control the overall system, so that some common objective is achieved. In this paper two non-linear models in multi-agent systems are proposed. These models operate on the principles of distributed control and cascade control.

Motioned Facial Recognition from Live Feed for Surveillance Solutions

Abstract:     The paper focuses on how face recognition can be done on live video stream (using a webcam-inbuilt or USB attached).The live video is checked for any human face. If a human face is detected, a rectangular box is formed around the face. If nothing is found for the face detection method, a text box showing the error is presented in front of the user. If the face is detected this face is then matched with the already saved database which was priorly created having images of different faces. This is the training database which is then matched with the face image extracted from the live video stream. Initially the project shows the process of face detection and matching procedure from images and then proceeds to face recognition and matching through a live video streaming. The live video here considered is the webcam, the face is detected through the webcam and if any match is found from the train database previously stored in the computer or the device is found then both the detected image and the current image are displayed on the graphical user interface. The GUI being made consists of three axes windows, one showing the continuous live streaming of video, the second shows the screenshot or singular frame of the face detected in the live stream and the third has the image got from the database that somewhat matches to the current image being displayed. The two databases are there, one the train database where the images of different faces of people are stored which would then be used for matching from live video stream for the purpose of security and authentication. The test database consists of the images that are being received from the live video stream, the video stream as soon as it detects the face of human, takes the snapshot of the frame and saves it to the test database, these images are then checked for authentication by matching them with the images in the train database.

   The test database consists of the images that are being received from the live video stream, the video stream as soon as it detects the face of human, takes the snapshot of the frame and saves it to the test database, these images are then checked for

PID Control Tuning VIA Particle Swarm Optimization for Coupled Tank System

Abstract:      This paper presents the use of meta-heuristic technique to obtain three parameters (KP, KI and KD) of PID controller for Coupled Tank System (CTS). Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is chosen and Sum Squared Error is selected as objective function. This PSO is implemented for controlling desired liquid level of CTS.  Then, the performances of the system are compared to various conventional techniques which are Trial and Error, Auto-Tuning, Ziegler-Nichols (Z-N) and Cohen-Coon (C-C) method. Simulation is conducted within Matlab environment to verify the transient response specifications in terms of Rise Time (TR), Settling Time (TS), Steady State Error (SSE) and Overshoot (OS). Result obtained shows that performance of CTS can be improved via PSO as PID tuning methods.

Design and Study of Enhanced Parallel FIR Filter Using Various Adders for 16 Bit Length

Abstract:       Now a day’s parallel Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter plays very important role in the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) based applications. FIR filters are one of the most widely used fundamental filters in the DSP systems. The parallel FIR filters are derived from FIR digital filter. In this paper, design and study of enhanced parallel FIR filter with various adders using the structure of  Fast FIR Algorithm (FFA) based FIR filter and symmetric convolution based FIR filter structures considering 2-parallel and 3-parallel filters is done. These entire filter structures are also designed using Ripple Carry Adder (RCA), Carry save Adder (CSA) and Carry Increment Adder (CIA) by replacing the existing adders with the input bit length and coefficient length of 16-bits. Then the performance metrics of the above two structures is done by designing using Verilog HDL. Further, they are simulated and synthesized using Xilinx ISE 13.2 for Vertex family device of speed -12.
