Paper Title:

Comparative Study on Natural and Commercial Coagulants: Treatment of Semiconductor Wastewater in Sludge Production and Removal of Heavy Metals

Abstract: The objective of this study is to determine the coagulation efficiencies on total solids (TS) removal from semiconductor wastewater by applying various locally available starches as natural coagulants. Two commercial coagulants such as alum [Al2(SO4)3•18H2O] and polyaluminium chloride (PAC) were also utilized in this study in order to compare the coagulation efficiency with the natural coagulants. The EDX analysis of the raw semiconductor wastewater showed that it contained silica dioxide (SiO2) with a concentration of 90%.   It appeared that the natural coagulants employed in the study have similar coagulation characteristics with the commercial coagulants. However, the natural coagulants possess better metal adsorption capability than the commercial coagulants. A 3 level factorial experimental design was used in the Response Surface Methodology (RSM) analysis and indicated that starches are capable to remove TS from the semiconductor wastewater and the removal performance were almost similar to alum and higher than PAC.

Paper Title:

Glaucoma Images Classification Using Fuzzy Min-Max Neural Network Based On Data-Core

Abstract: Glaucoma is the major cause of blindness in worldwide. It is an ophthalmologist disease characterized by an increase in Intraocular Pressure (IOP). The types of glaucoma are primary open angle or chronic glaucoma (POAG) and closed angle (or) acute glaucoma (CAG) which causes a slow (or) rapid rise in Intraocular Pressure (IOP). The iridocorneal angle between the iris and the cornea is the key used to differentiate OAG and CAG. The stratus Anterior Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT) images with these diseases are detected and classified from the normal images using the proposed fuzzy min-max neural network based on Data-Core (DCFMN). Data-core fuzzy min-max neural network (DCFMN) has strong robustness and high accuracy in classification. DCFMN contains two classes of neurons: classifying neurons (CNs) and overlapping neurons (OLNs).CNs are used to classify the patterns of data. The OLN can handle all kinds of overlap in different hyper boxes. A new type of membership function considering the characteristics of data and the influence of noise is designed for CNs in the DCFMN. The membership function of Overlapping Neurons (OLNs) deals with the relative position of data in the hyper boxes. This algorithm is performed on a batch of 39 anterior segment- Optical Coherence Tomography (AS-OCT) images obtained from the Vasan Eye Care Hospital, Chennai. The performance of the proposed system is excellent and a classification rate of 97% is achieved. Hence using this neural network, the performance of classification of normal or abnormal (glaucoma affected images) is improved. This method also reduces the time taken for the diagnosis by the ophthalmologist.

Outlier Detection: A Clustering-Based ApproachOutlier Detection: A Clustering-Based Approach

Abstract: Outlier detection is a fundamental issue in data mining; specifically it has been used to detect and remove anomalous objects from data. It is an extremely important task in a wide variety of application domains. In this paper, a proposed method based on clustering approaches for outlier detection is presented. We first perform the Partitioning Around Medoids (PAM) clustering algorithm. Small clusters are then determined and considered as outlier clusters. The rest of outliers (if any) are then detected in the remaining clusters based on calculating the absolute distances between the medoid of the current cluster and each one of the points in the same cluster. Experimental results show that our method works well.

Analysis of Data Delivery Issues in MANET Using Implementation of MTOOR Algorithm

Abstract: This research paper addresses the issues of reliable data delivery in mobile ad- hoc network and implies a new (Moving Target Oriented Opportunistic Routing) Algorithm for which existing routing protocols are not suitable. This algorithm is implemented in Wireless Routing protocol (WRP) which is good in delivering the data in highly dynamic MANETs. This WRP has an issue in the over heading problem and less data security. So I propose a new proactive routing algorithm known as MTOOR routing algorithm. This algorithm provides good result for delivering data in highly dynamic ad-hoc networks by searching the target node and updating all the information for delivering data without over heading. This proposed scheme works efficiently in a large network of high mobility nodes and this concept is implemented using OMNeT++ environment. The main Objective of the paper is to reduce the high overheads and improve the routing performance in a proactive protocol WRP by reducing the Overheads.

Point Pattern Matching Algorithm for Recognition of 36 ASL Gestures

Abstract: Hand gesture recognition is a way to create a useful, highly adaptive interface between machines and their users. The recognition of gestures is difficult because gestures exhibit human variability. Sign languages are used for communication and interface . There are various types of systems and methods available for sign languages recognition. Our approach is robust and efficient for static hand gesture recognition. The main objective of this paper is to propose a system which is able to recognize 36  static hand gestures of  American Sign Language (ASL) for letter A- Z and digits 0-9 successfully and also it is able to perform the classification on static images correctly in real time. We proposed a novel method of pattern recognition to recognize symbols of the ASL based on the features extracted by SIFT algorithm and its performance is compared it with widely used methods such as PCA and Template Matching.

An assessment of Identity Security in Data Mining

Abstract: Privacy preserving becomes an important issue in the development progress of data mining techniques. Privacy preserving data mining has become increasingly popular because it allows sharing of privacy-sensitive data for analysis purposes. So people have become increasingly unwilling to share their data. This frequently results in individuals either refusing to share their data or providing incorrect data. In turn, such problems in data collection can affect the success of data mining, which relies on sufficient amounts of accurate data in order to produce meaningful results. In recent years, the wide availability of personal data has made the problem of privacy preserving data mining an important one. A number of methods have recently been proposed for privacy preserving data mining of multidimensional data records. This paper intends to reiterate several privacy preserving data mining technologies clearly and then proceeds to analyze the merits and shortcomings of these technologies.

Lossless Compression of Hyperspectral Images Using Hybrid Based Clustering DPCM

Abstract: This project explores the use of hybrid clustering technique for lossless compression method for Hyperspectral images. It is based on the joint use of fuzzy c means and nearest neighbor algorithms. In this method, linear prediction is performed using coefficients optimized for each spectral cluster separately. The difference between the prediction and original values is entropy coded using an adaptive range coder for each cluster. The result shows that this method has lower bit-per-pixel value. It is an extension to the existing lossless compression algorithm. Better partitioning of data is achieved. The technique starts with the fuzzy c means algorithm, performed as the first stage for an adequately high number of centroids and continues with the nearest neighbour algorithm executed for the clusters obtained in the first stage, as the set of initial objects to be merged for relatively complex shapes.

Paper Title:

The Impact of Lossy Compression on Hyperspectral Data Adaptive Spectral Unmixing and PCA Classification

Abstract: In the past, scientific data have been almost exclusively compressed by means of lossless methods, in order to preserve their full quality. However, more recently, there has been an increasing interest in the lossy compression which has not yet globally accepted by the remote sensing community, mainly because it is sensed that the lossy compressed images may affect the results of posterior processing stages. Hence here, the influence of lossy compression on two standard approaches for hyperspectral data exploitation known as adaptive spectral unmixing, and supervised classification using PCA are considered. The experimental result states that the adaptive spectral unmixing provides a user defined spatial scale which improves the process of extraction of end members and PCA improves the classification accuracy. It is also observed that, for certain compression techniques, a higher compression ratio may lead to more accurate classification results. This work further provides recommendations on best practices when applying lossy compression prior to hyperspectral data classification and/or unmixing.

Deployment of Mobile Sensor Node and Asynchronous Power Management

Abstract: The main motivation is to reduce power consumption in wireless transmission networks. In Wireless transmission networks power management and node deployment are the important factors in wireless transmission networks. In the previous methods, power can be reduced even though the nodes are remains in sleep mode. But the novel approach is proposed to reduce power in active condition. The main advantage is that the nodes are deployed in automatic manner which overcomes manual deployment. Nodes are used to cover maximum area with highly accurate localization mechanism can be done by ECDH protocol. Grid deployment is used for automatic node deployment in networks. The grid with minimum value technique is the important method to place the mobile node in the networks. Node uses power only in the active condition, whenever it needs to transmit data.

FPGA Based Implementation of Image Encryption Using Scan Patterns and Carrier Images

Abstract: This paper presents an FPGA implementation of image encryption method using carrier images and scan patterns generated by scan methodology. The scan is a language-based two-dimensional spatial-accessing methodology which can efficiently specify and generate a wide range of scanning paths. Then scanning paths sequence fill in original image. The carrier image is created with the help of alphanumeric keyword. Each alphanumeric key will be having a unique 8bit value generated by 4 out of 8-code.This newly generated carrier image is added with the original image to obtain encrypted image. The scan methodology is applied to either original image or carrier image, after the addition of original image and carrier image to obtain the highly distorted encrypted image. By applying the reverse we get the decrypted image.  Reversible logic is most popular concept in energy efficient computations and this will be demand for upcoming future computing technologies. The proposed paper will be simulated using Xilinx simulator and implemented in Xilinx FPGA platform.

A Review on QoS Multicast Routing Protocols for MANETs & Internet

Abstract: Multicasting is a technique used for distributing data packets from one or more   sources to a set of receivers on interconnected networks. Currently developing   network   applications   bring   specific   quality   of   service   (QoS) requirements like bounded delay, minimum bandwidth, and maximum data loss rate. Providing the required quality of service addresses routing and resource reservation concepts. In this study, a literature survey is carried out on traditional and QoS multicast routing protocols, and the need for QoS routing protocols is investigated. Multicasting can minimize the link bandwidth consumption and reduce the communication cost by sending the same data to multiple participants. Multicast service is critical for applications that need collaboration of team of users. Multicasting in MANETs and internet becomes a hot research area due to the increasing popularity of group communication applications such as video conferencing and interactive television. Recently, multimedia and group-oriented computing gains more popularity for users of ad hoc networks. In this paper we are presenting an overview of set of the most recent QoS multicast routing protocols that have been proposed in order to provide the researchers with a clear view of what has been done in this field and how modified protocols can be designed using these protocols.

Fuzzy Forensic Analysis System for DDoS Attack in MANET Response Analysis

Abstract: Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET) are wireless communication network; in which self capable mobile nodes can dynamically self organize into ad hoc topologies. Seamless interconnection with each other without pre-existing infrastructure makes MANET scalable. In turn scalability also increases the scope of security threats. Dynamic nature of MANET calls for self route management routing algorithm like DSR. Attacks at discovery phase of DSR to discover the route could be launched by attacker/malicious node by flooding (violating broadcasting rules) the route request message (RREQ) and prohibit the normal working of network for duration of time. Flooding is a kind of denial of service (DoS/DDoS) attack. When an attack on the target system is successful enough to hamper the normal working of network, this event triggers investigation. Network forensic analysis is done to analyze the attack scenario and to come up with digital proof against the attacker/attackers. To gather the proof there is the need to empirically analyze the evidential knowledge. Fuzzy logic is good choice for empirical analysis. So, we have implemented a fuzzy forensic analysis system. In this paper, we analyzed the response of fuzzy forensic analysis system that we have implemented.

Image Denoising Based On Fast Noise Estimation Methods and Median Algorithm

Abstract: Impulse noise detection is a critical issue when re- moving impulse noise and impulse/Gaussian mixed noise. In this paper, we propose a new detection mechanism for universal noise and a universal noise-filtering framework based on the nonlocal means (NL-means). The operation is carried out in two stages, i.e., detection followed by filtering. For detection, first, we propose the robust outlyingness ratio (ROR) for measuring how impulse like each pixel is, and then all the pixels are divided into four clusters according to the ROR values. Second, different decision rules are used to detect the impulse noise based on the absolute deviation to the median in each cluster. In order to make the detection results more accurate and more robust, the from-coarse-to-fine strategy and the iterative framework are used. In addition, the detection procedure consists of two stages, i.e., the coarse and fine detection stages. For filtering, the NL-means are extended to the impulse noise by introducing a reference image. Then, a universal denoising framework is proposed by combining the new detection mechanism with the NL-means (ROR-NLM). Finally, extensive simulation results show that the proposed noise detector is su- perior to most existing detectors, and the ROR-NLM produces excellent results and outperforms most existing filters for different noise models. Unlike most of the other impulse noise filters, the proposed ROR-NLM also achieves high peak signal-to-noise ratio and great image quality by efficiently removing impulse/Gaussian mixed noise.
