  • Towards Recent Developments in the Methods, Metrics and Datasets of Software Fault Prediction   Order a copy of this article
    by Deepak Sharma, Pravin Chandra 
    Abstract: The world of software systems is amplified with the changing environment magnifying the demand for quality software. Software fault prediction is a requisite activity ensuring the development of economic, efficient and quality software. It is the procedure for the development of models which help to identify faults in modules during early phases of software development lifecycle. Software fault prediction is one of the most prevalent research disciplines. The existing study in this domain includes numerous modeling techniques and software metrics for the early predictions of software faults. This paper aims to explore some of the prominent studies for software fault prediction in the existing literature. In this paper, software fault prediction papers since 1990 to 2017 are investigated. The paper includes the analysis of the studies having empirical validation and a good source of publication. The paper reflects the methods, metrics, and datasets available in the literature for software fault prediction. In addition, the modeling techniques based on traditional and computational intelligence based methods are also reviewed. This paper is an endeavor to assemble the existing techniques and metrics of software fault prediction with a motive to assist researchers for easy evaluation of suitable metrics for their own research scenarios.

  • Comparing Robustness of Realised Measures under Round-off Errors, Price Adjustments and Serial Correlations: A Simulation Study   Order a copy of this article
    by Hiroumi Misaki 
    Abstract: We compare the accuracy of realised measures using a number of computer simulations. Realised measures are the methods used to estimate the integrated volatility from high-frequency data. We consider a simple realised volatility (RV), a 5-minnute RV, a subsampled 5-minute RV, a two-scale estimator (TS), a realised kernel (RK), a pre-averaging estimator (PA) and a separating information maximum likelihood estimator (SIML). We used seven market microstructure models, which included round-off errors, price adjustments and serial correlation. The SIML is not irrationally biased in any case; this implies that the SIML is sufficiently robust to the market microstructure noise in any form. We have also found that the SIML is the only realised measure for maintaining consistency in all our simulations. We conclude that SIML is suitable for practical applications.
    Keywords: finance; high frequency data; decision making; realised measures; volatility estimation; robustness; market microstructure noise; round-off; price adjustments; serial correlations; simulation study; high performance computing; separating information maximum likelihood; SIML.

  • A Framework for Ensemble Classification and Sensitivity Analysis in Privacy Preserving Data Mining   Order a copy of this article
    by Chandrakanth Patrapati, Chandrakanth Patrapati 
    Abstract: The perturbation mechanism for data streams is a challenging task. In the emerging world, data is erupting from various sources. The core applications need care on the data streams for further analysis and experimentation. As the micro data available with the core applications shall not be revealed to the public without taking any chance of breach, the perturbation challenges the analysis to get through the like results as of on the original data sets. In this paper we have applied a concept of Perlin noise to distract the original data from the eyes of the analysts, however allowing them to perform their activities well. The data evolving in the trendy applications of the today world needs security, almost of the applications in the world are related directly or indirectly to the personally identifiable information (micro data) of the people. The security that assures the privacy on these data is hitherto static in the applications. Applying security dynamically on such data is a challenging task. The perturbation mechanism canonically applies the noise on the datasets, where some of them do not require. This paper deals about the concepts of generation of smooth noise and syntactic perturbation mechanism on the selective tuples as selective perturbation.

  • Feed Forwarded CT Image Registration for Tumor and Cyst Detection using rigid transformation with HSV color segmentation   Order a copy of this article
    Abstract: This paper automates the Medical diagnosis process by Image Registration feed forwarded to object detection with prediction of tumour and cyst by using K-means clustering over HSV colour features. Diagnosis of life killer disease is a complex process which requires Bio-medical image such as MRI, CT, and Endoscopy etc. Many Biomedical Images is used for the same case to predict the disease. Because of different view point of different Photographic sensors at different time obtained medical images are not aligned. So the manual diagnosis makes harder because of the images are not registered or not aligned properly. The inherent cause is the distortion of the imaging signal where object may be miss-transformed due to different camera focus and projection. Image registration is an essence to bypass the non-alignment issue. Here we have proposed and analysed a combined solution towards the miss transformed object or region of interest by performing reverse geometric transformation with different angle to produce the better perspective image for diagnosis which is feed forwarded to HSV colour model based segmentation to predict the cyst, tumour presence.

    by SANJAY KUMAR MISHRA, Loknath Tripathy 
    Abstract: This paper focuses a novel relaying approach of combined Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based relaying scheme in Unified Power Flow Controller (UPFC) integrated Wind fed transmission line. This novelty of the scheme illustrates the fault detection of transmission line and minimises the fault detection time through the combined algorithm of DWT and ANN. However the combined scheme (DWT and ANN) works better as compared to DWT alone and fault time reduces to quarter cycle time (5msec). The process starts with DWT processor to find Spectral energy (SE). The differential spectral energy (DSE) is computed using the difference of spectral energy obtained from both sending and receiving end of the transmission line. The computed DSE value of each phase from DWT is fed to the ANN fault detector to register the fault pattern. It is trained and tested with different parameter variation of the line to obtain fault detection output and fault time. The advantages of using the scheme is that its performance accuracy is higher and detects the fault within 5msec time and compared with the existing scheme. The proposed approach is very effective, accurate, reliable and simple to understand for fault detection, classification of transmission line in comparison to existing methodology.

  • Empirical Validation of Object-Oriented Metrics on Cross-Projects with Different Severity Levels   Order a copy of this article
    by Aarti Aarti, Geeta Sikka, Renu Dhir 
    Abstract: An object-oriented (OO) metrics has become crucial desideratum for software effort and fault predictions. To strengthen the adequacy of object-oriented metrics, it becomes important to know relationship between OO metrics and fault proneness at different levels of severity. It is inconceivable to build model of accurate estimate due to the inherent uncertainty in development projects. Empirical validations of software metrics are essential issue to determine applicability of prediction model. In this study, empirical validation is done on OO metrics given by Chidamber and Kemerer (CK suite) for predicting faults at different severity levels. This paper also instanced on defect prediction using cross-projects (CP) because of the unpredictability in selection of software attributes by analogy based approach that deliver imprecise and ambiguous solution. This paper depicts detection of fault-proneness by extracting the relevant OO metrics and such models helps to focus on fault prone modules of new projects by allocating more resources to them with use of regression and other machine learning methods. Combination of CP data with regression techniques improves effectiveness of prediction by extracting similar features impacted by all datasets. The performance is evaluated using the receiver and operator (ROC) parameters. The results concluded that proposed methodology has great potential for conducting prediction of faults and shows that analysis of result using machine learning techniques outperforms as compared to logistic regression.

    by Kshitish Dash, Bibhuti Choudhury 
    Abstract: The robot inverse kinematic controller does not give the shut frame arrangement. Henceforth Mechanical controller can accomplish end effectors position in more than one arrangement. To accomplish correct arrangement of the joint angle has been the fundamental worry in the research work. In this paper the analytical solution has been done using D-H method. The method gives the 6 DOF industrial robot with D-H Parameter value which will be the best uses for any inverse kinematics algorithm. Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm is used to solve inverse kinematic of 6-DOF industrial robot arm and the result has been simulated with different soft computing method like ANN and Fuzzy logic . A comparison is taken between both the result obtain from different sources.

  • A phase Entropy based novel Machine learning structure conditioned for classifying Ictal and Non-Ictal signal aimed at proper clinical diagnosis   Order a copy of this article
    Abstract: Proposed Scheme is based on the detection and classification of Ictal and pre-Ictal Electro -Encephalogram (EEG) signal of a partially affected epileptic patients. This work helps for the detection of ictal EEG signal as compared to pre-ictal EEG signal. In this work a conceptual method is used for the perfect detection of seizures. Here Phase Entropies (PEnS1 and PEnS2) are followed for feature extraction Ictal and pre-Ictal EEG signals. Again extracted features are classified through Multi-Layer Perception Neural Network (MLPNN) classifier tool. To train and test the classifier, Map Reduce quantum PSO (MRQPSO) is used. By considering various statistical parameters like Accuracy, Sensitivity, Specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and Matthews correlation coefficient, the performance of the proposed scheme has evaluated.
