Abstract: Analyzing gene expression data is a challenging task since the large number of features against the shortage of available examples can be prone to over fitting. In order to avoid this pitfall and achieve high performance, some approaches construct complex classifiers, using new or well-established strategies. In medical decision making (classification, diagnosing) there are many situations where decision must be made effectively and reliably.

Abstract: Many digital services, such as confidential video conferencing, medical, military imaging systems and the rapid progress of Internet, require reliable security and encryption in real time to store and transmit these digital images/videos.In this paper, a parallel implementation of the advanced encryption standard (AES) using pipelining technique is proposed. For more security, a pseudo random sequence generator (PRSG) is used in advance. The goal is to achieve a high-speed reliable security system for real time application. The parallel architecture is implemented on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) family of Spartan_6 (XC6SLX16) using Very high speed Hardware Description Language (VHDL). An image encryption is taken as a case study. The system is capable to process image (256*256) in (0.00053) seconds;consequentially the real time requirement is achieved.

Abstract: In many applications it is very useful to identify the unexpected activities on data with respect to time. Cyber security is one of the application area in which we are using intrusion detection system to monitor the network traffic for unauthorized activities and it generates alerts for different types of attacks. For this we propose Efficient algorithm named as Top-k PUS which identifies unexplained sequences and for alerts generation we are using GM Approach which consists of probabilistic methods. Finally experimental results Show that those are efficient with detection accuracy and time.

This paper addresses finding subsequences that are not explained by the activities.

For this We propose a Top-k PUS and GM Approach with probabilistic model for alert generation.

Abstract: Here in this work we presented a hybrid model of packet marking and logging for the IP trace back for the node that wants to attack any node in the network. The main idea is to detect the DOS attacks in the network by employing the ip of the attacker node. Here we are implementing the packet marking and the logging for the homogenous and the heterogeneous network. Also here we are integrating the concept of pre shared key exchange on the routers to make the marking of the packets is easy and can increase the efficiency of detecting attacks in the network.

Abstract: The DBMS applications are becoming increasingly popular in the scientific community to support the interactive exploration of huge data. A result of heavy usage has also lead to a lot of tavles generated in the warehouse. This has tremendously increased the need for recommendation system & various tools for the user as user is not capable to explore such huge data by using Structured Query language. This motivates to turn towards the idea of query recommendation system which will assist the technical & non-technical users to generate top-N query recommendations as per their needs. In this survey paper, the focus is given on opportunities that exist in domain of query recommendation, brief description of recommendation outline and techniques. Along with this, the terminology to identify the similarity and comparison of fragment based approach & matrix factorization approach is also explored.

Abstract: The law enforcement agency make use of face recognition system for the identification of criminals. In some cases, the photograph of criminals is not available. In this situation,sketch is drawn by the information provided by the eyewitness. In the early stages sketches are drawn by the artist by the information provided by the eyewitness. Sometimes the witness does not recall the exact apperance of the suspect. In that case,sketch drawn is not helpfull for investigation. In this networked world, the sketch construction with the help of computer generated software arises. The computer generated composite sketch is constructed by selecting the facial components provided in the system database. The composite sketch construction gives more faster results for the law enforcement agency. The component based approach for face recognition using probabilistic neural network classifier gives more accurate result in photo to sketch matching. The proposed approach performs facial decomposition, some transformations and feature extraction for photo to composite matching. The use of classifier is helpfull for comparing the features of face images and gives the degree of match to make a decision. The advantage of using Probabilisitic Neural Network( PNN) classifier is that it requires only short training time.
Keywords: Composite based approach, composite sketch , PNN.

Abstract: This paper proposed the method of mean shift segmentation on Enhanced color image . The method applies the modified histogram equalization technique for enhancement of under illuminated color image and then mean shift segmentation is applied on this enhanced image. This technique uses the lightness component in YIQ color space is transformed using sigmoid function, then the traditional histogram equalization (HE) method is applied on Y component. Once the image is enhanced mean shift segmentation is applied to the enhanced image due to which we get good segmentation results as compared to without enhanced image. Experiments on natural color images show promising results.

Abstract: The increased capacity and lower prices of computer hard drives led to a new universe of knowledge. Although search and information retrieval techniques are already widely used in the Internet, its application in personal computers is still incipient. The management of information is relatively difficult when it comes to large size of data lying in the machine. There is a need to manage the number of documents and the data retrieval is difficult when the number of files is too many. This project proposes an approach of document clustering as user need to retrieve information from set of documents. [1]Document clustering is one of the approach in clustering method which is specifically used for management and retrieval of documents. [2]The clustering engine intelligently works towards providing user with document as input, the specific documents with output.

Abstract: Smart phones with cameras having powerful built-in sensors tend to meet at a point towards the problem of automatic image-tagging. So such an out-of-band approach is valuable, especially with increasing device density and greater sophistication in sensing and learning algorithms. This paper shows that automatic tagging of images with relevant tags is possible by using a combination of the capture of location, the date/time when the image was captured, and an image category. Comparison of various automatic image-tagging approaches has been done so as to develop a new system with a dynamic approach for using multiple images when possible, and fewer images when not many relevant images are found.
Keywords: Annotation, context, digital images, image tagging, sensing.

Title : Voltage Control Of Three Phase Ac/Dc Pwm Converters Using Feedback Linearisation
Country : India
Authors : Ancha.Sadhana || K.Bhavana
: 10.9790/0661-16656977    logo

Abstract: This paper proposes a voltage control strategy for a three level PWM converter based on feedback linearization in order to control dc bus voltage. Incorporating the power balance of the input and output sides in system modeling, a nonlinear model of the PWM converter is derived with state variables such as ac input currents and dc output voltage. Feedback linearization transforms a nonlinear system into a linear system. Then by input–output feedback linearization, the system is linearized and a state feedback control law is obtained by pole placement. For robust control to parameter variations, integrators are added to the exact feedback control law. Since the fast voltage control is feasible for load changes, it is shown that the capacitor size can be reduced remarkably. The input current is regulated to be sinusoidal and the source power factor can be controlled at unity. This feedback linearization technique can be extended for permanent magnet synchronous generator wind power system at the grid voltage sag. The proposed method is tested and the results of simulation are observed using MATLAB/SIMULINK.

Keywords: AC/DC pulse width modulation converter, DC-link voltage, feedback linearization, permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG), wind power, matlab/simulink.

Title : Quality enhancement of video denoising algorithm with combined effect of different views
Country : India
Authors : Er. Snehal Ambulkar || Er. Priti Golar

Abstract: An unwanted factor in digital images and videos called as Noise is responsible for hiding the details and destroying image information. Hence denoising has great importance in the detail restoration and to improve the quality measures. A simple adaptive median filter (SAMF) is one of the most promising algorithm capable of denoising the videos to better extent, but incapable to use all the neighboring pixel information while noise processing. And hence quality of the denoised video can be further improved if all neighboring pixel information is considered. To make this possible the SAMF is combined with the multi-view denoising and then a fusion strategy is used to generate enhanced denoised video sequence. The performance of the combined system is measured through the image quality matrix called as Pick Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) at different noise contamination level.
