  • A New Feature Extraction Technique For Classifiers Using Self-Organizing Map   Order a copy of this article
    by Prasenjit Dey, Tandra Pal 
    Abstract: Neural network classifiers suffer from the overfitting problem which reduces its generalization capability. Due to generalization, a trained classifier will always have good test accuracy. The objective of the proposed work is to improve the input space of the data set which in consequence will increase the generalization of the classifiers. For this purpose, we have proposed a new feature extraction technique based on self-organizing map (SOM). Initially, two-dimensional SOM network is trained to achieve topological ordering in the input data set. Then, a Gaussian function is used in each node of the output map of SOM network. It processes the input patterns sequentially and produces $m^2$ dimensional new representation corresponding to each input pattern, where $m^2$ is the number of nodes present in the output layer. Thereafter, classifiers like probabilistic neural network (PNN) or multilayer perceptron (MLP) is used over this new representation of the input patterns. The whole process creates a new classifier based on hybrid neural network model. We have used twelve standard classification data sets and compared proposed model with conventional PNN and MLP classifiers. Comparison of results shows the superiority of the proposed method. Wilcoxon signed rank test also shows that our SOM-based model used for transformation of feature representation improves the performance of the classifiers.
    Keywords: Feature extraction; Gaussian function; generalization; multilayer perceptron; probabilistic neural network; self-organizing map.

  • Exploration of Neural Network Models for Defect Detection and Classification   Order a copy of this article
    by B. V. Ajay Prakash, D.V. Ashoka, V.N. Manjunath Aradhya 
    Abstract: In order to overcome the software development challenges like delivering a project on time`, developing quality software products and reducing development cost, software industries commonly uses defect detection software tools to manage quality in software products. Defects are detected and classified based on their severity, this can be automated in order to reduce the development time and cost. Nowadays to extract useful knowledge from large software repositories engineers and researchers are using data mining techniques. In this paper, software defect detection and classification method is proposed and neural network models such as Generalised Regression Neural Network (GRNN) and Probabilistic Neural Network model (PNN) are integrated to identify, classify the defects from large software repository. Based on defects severity proposed method discussed in this paper focuses on three layers: core, abstraction and application layer. The performance accuracy of the proposed model is compared with MLP and J48 classifiers.

  • Identification of AIDS Disease Severity Based on Computational Intelligence TechniquesUsing Clonal Selection Algorithm   Order a copy of this article
    by Dharmaiah Devarapalli, Srikanth Panigrahi, M.R. Narasinga Rao, Jonnadula Venkata Rao 
    Abstract: Motivation: The mining bioinformatics data is newly formed area in process of between bioinformatics and data mining. The process of developing the algorithmsmanipulated based on computational intelligence. The agitation cases be created everywhere in the world concerning of the Acquired Immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) disease which are complex. Data were collected throughout self-administered mail survey share nationwide at clinical and drug treatment centers and AIDS service organizations. Every country is facing the problem about AIDS. According to the occurring at a time immediately before the present survey of world health organization (WHO).Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the retro virus which is the family retro viridae and it is a group of viruses that deficiency of the immune system, Especially that causing the death of many CD4 count cells, which coordinates the human immune system response extremely without invitation like intrudes. This project is identifying Patients severity and it is useful Doctors. Results: In this present machine learning algorithm of the clonal selection algorithm more effective diagnosis and optimize the data of AIDS disease. Computational intelligence techniques based on test of the performed the techniques used as AIDS data set. Calculated amore effective of rule length based on fitness function using sensitivity, specificity, comprehensibility are computed. Those techniques achievedto promising accurate results.
    Keywords: AIDS data; CD4 Cells count,fitness function; intelligence technique; Clonal Selection Algorithm.

  • Reporting Cell Planning for Cost Reduction Using Binary Genetic Algorithm   Order a copy of this article
    by Smita Parija 
    Abstract: In mobile access networks, location management is a major and complex issue where location information of the mobile user is essential to deliver incoming calls/SMS to the appropriate mobile stations (MSs). Many metaheuristic algorithms are developed to solve such types of important issue which is responsible for determining the network configuration. This paper proposes a conventional Binary Genetic Algorithm (BGA) approach implemented to Reporting Cells Planning Problem in complex multimodal search spaces. Since BGA is a conventional algorithm sufficiently able to solve the signaling cost problem along with the modifications in the generic operators. These modifications occur in the mutation operator. The simulation results obtained from the experiments conducted using the existing data base along with the real time data base. The proposed method shows better performance compared to existing algorithm. This simulation results obtained from the experiments reflects the effectiveness of the conventional Binary Genetic Algorithm.
    Keywords: Binary Genetic Algorithm; Cost function; Location Update; Mobile Location Management; Paging;Reporting Cell Planning Problem.

Special Issue on: ICES 2017 Innovations in Communication and Engineering

    by Ponsindhu Thilagar 
    Abstract: Availability of timely and adequate finance is the foremost important thing for the growth of any sector. Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) contribution to Indian economy in terms of production, employment and exports is very significant. To support MSMEs a large number of commercial banks and financial institutions are operating in our country.There is a need to study the problem and issues behind obtaining of credit support and subsidies from the financial institutions are another area was an attempt can be made to understand the difficulties faced by the women entrepreneur owning MSME. Hence this research is designed to study the above mentioned problems related to women entrepreneurs.
