Abstract:Disruption tolerant networks (DTNs) are characterized by low node density, unpredictable node mobility, and lack of global network information. Most of current research efforts in DTNs focus on data forwarding, but only limited work have been done on providing efficient data access to vehicle users. The proposed Fuzzy Probabilistic Routing Protocol using History of Encounters and Transitivity (FPRoPHET) protocol uses an algorithm that attempts to exploit the non-randomness of real-world encounters by maintaining a set of probabilities for successful delivery to known destinations in the VDTN (delivery predictabilities) and replicating messages during opportunistic encounters only if the Mule that does not have the message appears to have a better chance of delivering it.

Abstract:Load balancing in cloud is different from the typical architecture of load balancing techniques. This opens up new opportunities and challenges. Resource management is the use of available processors in the most efficient way possible. A CPU scheduling algorithm is said to efficient when it keeps the CPU and disks busy. The Scheduling algorithm is of greater interest if the technique is dynamic.The dynamic technique is of larger interest because of its dynamic adaptability to the current state of the system. In dynamic technique, weights are designated to servers and by searching a lightest server in the whole network, the load is balanced. Key words: Cloud, Cloud environment, Load Balancing, Qualitative, distributed computing, efficiency

Abstract: Data mining can be used to model crime detection problems, detect unusual patterns, terrorist activities and fraudulent behaviour. We will look at k-means clustering with some enhancements to aid in the process of identification of crime patterns. The k-means algorithm is one of the frequently used clustering method in data mining, due to its performance in clustering massive data sets. The final clustering result of the k-means clustering algorithm greatly depends upon the correctness of the initial centroids, which are selected randomly. The original k-means algorithm converges to local minimum, not the global optimum. Many improvements were already proposed to improve the performance of the k-means, but most of these require additional inputs like threshold values for the number of data points in a set. In this paper a new method is proposed for finding the better initial centroids and to provide an efficient way of assigning the data points to suitable clusters with reduced time complexity.

Title : Neural Network for Solving Job-Shop Scheduling Problem
Country : India
Authors : Miss. Rukhsana G. Sache

Abstract:The job shop scheduling is a very important scheduling problem, which is NP-complete in the strong sense and with well-known benchmark instances of relatively small size, which attest the practical difficulty in solving. Artificial neural network models have been successfully applied to solve such a job-shop scheduling problem (JSSP) known as a Nonpolynomial (NP-complete) constraint satisfaction problem. Our main contribution is an improvement of the algorithm proposed in the literature, which consists optimization of initial value of starting time. The main objective is to minimize the total weighted completion time of the jobs in the system that is the minimization of the makespan time by using the heuristic method. In this study, the heuristic method is used which gives a high quality approximate solution in reasonable time. The main advantage of using Hopfield Neural Network (HNN) is to improve the searching speed for getting an optimal or near optimal solution of a deterministic JSSP for reducing the makespan time. The simulation of the proposed method has been performed on various benchmarks. For two jobs and three machines (2/3/J/Cmax) dataset problem and any dataset problems, the simulation results shows the efficient with respect to the resolution speed, quality of the solution, and the reduction of the computation time which was not solved by Fanaiech et al. So, the simulation results have revealed that proposed heuristic algorithm can find high quality solutions to large sized instances very quickly.

Abstract:In order to solve the cooperation of autonomous agent systems,an artificial immune network cooperation algorithm is proposed,which is based on Jerne's idiotypic immune network hypothesis. A sheep- dog herding problem is taken as an example. The relative position information of dogs with the sheep and sheep pen is taken as an antigen. Dogs' action is taken as an antibody. We calculate antibody concentration according to Farmer's kinetic model. By selecting the appropriate antibody according to the antibody concentration the cooperation for autonomous agent systems can be realized. Simulation of sheep-dog herding in different environment shows that a herding strategies based on immune network can not only realize sheep-dog herding but also be more robust and flexible, which shows the effectiveness of the artificial immune network algorithm in autonomous agents systems.

Abstract:In this paper, we examine steps to system reconfiguration in a Distributed Database using some fault tolerance scheme for a distributed database system that is compatible with respect to system failure i.e. Normal transaction processing is carried out assuming that no failure will occur, but if failure is suspected at some stage or site then a system reconfiguration is undertaken. The reconfiguration and system transaction are guaranteed as long as there exist a majority of working sites belonging to the same database Keywords: Distributed Database, Reconfiguration, Homogeneous database, Database Replication, Failures

Abstract:E- Learning is the most feasible way to hold distance learning by providing learning materials over the internet; thus trend is becoming popular in developed and developing countries. This learning style becomes difficult to use by learners, usually by vague interface design. Due to which learner/user becomes reluctant towards E- Learning system. Usability testing of E- Learning systems targets its interface design, usability and human computer interaction. This study is an attempt to uncover the problems that occur in the use of such systems at user end. A survey from learners of an E- Learning system is carried out and result are compared by another usability evaluation technique named Heuristic Evaluation commonly employed by experts. Both end users and usability expert participated in this research by which two different evaluation methods are used to evaluate the usability of Virtual University Learning Management System. At the end some suggestions are given in order to improve the usability of target system after validating the results.

Abstract:With the advancement in wireless technologies, wireless networks are developing at a fast rate and so are the MANET's. Several routing attacks are introduced in the wireless networks due to their dynamically changing network topologies. A severe type of attack known as wormhole attack is the main theme of this paper and the work has been done to detect and prevent this attack. The work has been done with the help of DSR protocol. The existing functionality of DSR is extended so that the wormhole nodes are easily detected in the routing path and then that path is not used in the future because it is blacklisted by the network. A brief overview of the algorithm is also mentioned in the paper by which the detection and elimination of wormhole node is actually done.

Abstract:Patent Search has attracted considerable attention recently for finding existing relevant patents and validating new patent application. Earlier try-and-see approach was used to find any relevant underlying patents. Recent development has involved partition methods to find relevant patents. However, that method mainly focuses on Effectiveness of the search but not the Efficiency. To address this problem, we propose a new user-friendly patent search method which focuses on both Effectiveness and Efficiency of the patent search method. Error correction, query expansion and query suggestion techniques are used to get the patent search effectively and to improve the efficiency of the patent search, The proposed system uses two tools called WordNet and POS Tagger. We have used PoS tagger and SynSets from WordNet for identifying the intention of the user for the given search keyword and to create relevant partitions based on the Synsets. Finally top-k answers are generated from those highly relevant partitions are grouped together and displayed to the user.

Abstract:This paper presents a technique to use ID3 decision rules to produce fuzzy rules to get the optimize prediction of the students academic performance. In this paper, a the student administrative data for a class is used in order to classify the students final year marks in fuzzy logic prediction . This paper is using the machine learning approach to generate the rules so as to overcome the difficulties in a conventional approach like deriving fuzzy rules base from expert experience. This research provides us with: a way to produce meaningful and simple fuzzy rules; a method to fuzzify ID3-derived rules to deal with many inputs variables; and a de-fuzzification system to get the output in human understandable form. The Id3 tree is generated by the WEKA software and is utilized by the Fuzzy Inference System . A Fuzzy inference system was constructed to give the final crisp output. The ID3 was generated on 300 training data to get the better output. The output of our Fuzzy Student Performance Predictor was then tested on 50 test data to check for the accuracy.

Abstract:Opinion mining/Sentiment analysis is a field of research which focuses on tracking human opinions written in natural language. Many companies, Now-a-days, extract opinions from various internet sources (such as review sites, blogs, twitter) and try to predict customer's reviews on their upcoming products. Parts-Of-Speech Tagging or POS Tagging, being a crucial step in the process of opinion mining, is the assigning of each word with its POS tag, according to its definition and context in the corpus. In this paper, we will first have detailed study of a POS tagging algorithm i.e. Memory Based Learning Algorithm, along with other POS tagging techniques and then, dealing with its limitations, we will propose an enhanced model in order to significantly improve the efficiency of Memory-Based Learning Algorithm.
