  • Evaluation and analysis of classroom teaching quality of art design specialty based on DBT-SVM   Order a copy of this article
    by Junmei Guo 
    Abstract: Evaluating the quality of classroom teaching in higher education can improve teachers’ teaching, but the evaluating results are currently inaccurate. The study combines the Binary Tree Support Vector Machine (BT-SVM) and the Euclidean distance method to obtain the DBT-SVM (Distance Binary Tree Support Vector Machine, DBT-SVM) algorithm. Test the performance of DBT-SVM algorithm and compare it with one versus one (OVO) algorithm and one versus rest (OVR) algorithm. The results show that the accuracy of the DBT-SVM is 92.2% and the test time is 0.02s. It is superior to the traditional algorithms. In the empirical analysis of the evaluation model, the accuracy rate of the DBT-SVM algorithm model is 97.85%, which is superior to TW-SVM and traditional algorithm models. The results show that the performance of the optimized DBT-SVM algorithm has greatly improved the accuracy and test time of the traditional SVM algorithm.

  • The Nexus Between Allied Policies of GST And FDI With Dependent Telecom Policies of Licensing and Universal Service in India.   Order a copy of this article
    by Pankaj Mishra, Netra Pal Singh, Ayesha Farooq 
    Abstract: The Indian telecom industry has witnessed sustained grievances from the operators on telecom and allied policies. This paper analyses if such behavior is due to gaps in policy formulation, gaps in implementation or are an ex-post rent seeking behavior. Using the conceptual framework from Lemke and Harris-Wai (2015), the author analyzed if there was adequate telecom stakeholder participation in FDI and GST policy formulation. The causal map of regulation from Coglianese (2012), was used to evaluate gaps in the implementation of FDI and GST for telecom. In FDI policy formulation, the stakeholders were included at the discretion of the DPIIT , and the process is mainly inter-ministerial. In GST policy formulation the operators and DoT were involved in all the stages. DoT did all required changes in the telecom policy that were triggered by FDI and GST policies. Stakeholder participation did not result in lower ex-post issues rather the provisions

  • Using Digital Health to Support Superior Preparedness to Enable Better Preparedness and Readiness to Combat Pandemics: A Scoping Review   Order a copy of this article
    by Nilmini Wickramasinghe, Rima Gibbings 
    Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic that dominated the world in 2020 causing millions of deaths, severe illness, immense chaos and stress to healthcare systems and services not to mention detrimental effects to economies and the lives of all, has served to highlight key vulnerabilities in most countries; namely, those around not being prepared. Based on the worlds experiences through 2020, it has been noted by the WHO that a better state of preparedness would have enabled a better state of readiness to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and thus not only significantly reduce the loss of life but also the catastrophic impacts to the economy and the lives of all people. This paper performs a scoping review to identify and propose an appropriate approach of being better prepared for pandemics and other emergency scenarios.

  • Research on government network public opinion monitoring algorithm under the background of sustainable smart government   Order a copy of this article
    by Shiwei Zhang 
    Abstract: It is very necessary for the government to strengthen the supervision of network information. Considering the problems of over fitting and gradient disappearance in the traditional bi directional long short-term memory (BiLSTM) network, the regularisation method is used to adjust the input weight of the model. At the same time, 333 function is used to replace tanh activation function to build a government network public opinion monitoring model of double-layer long short-term memory network (RLSTM). The model performance test results show that in dataset type 1, the public opinion prediction accuracy is 0.993, and in dataset type 2, the public opinion prediction accuracy is 0.982, and the prediction performance is the best. At the same time, the improved RLSTM model also has excellent performance in the test of model convergence effect and error performance. The research content is of great significance to strengthen the security supervision of network information.

    by Jingjing Gong, Hongwen Han, Zhen Lv 
    Abstract: Financial risk indicators will have a negative impact on the development planning of enterprises, so the research introduces the theory of genetic algorithm. The result is that the overall performance of the model based on GA-RBF is superior to that of the model based on BF, CNN and RBF. GA-RBF model reaches a stable state when the number of training is 120, and the speed is significantly faster than the other three models. The error value of GA-RBF model is significantly lower than other model, and the error reduction speed is also faster. The time and memory of the four models increase with the increase of the number of samples, but the time and memory of GA-RBF model is less than the other three models. The highest prediction accuracy of GA-RBF model is 91.25%, and the highest prediction accuracy of RBF neural network is 64.5%.

  • Does remote work promote shared leadership in public organisations?   Order a copy of this article
    by Iman Ashmawy  
    Abstract: With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the imposed lockdowns, various public organisations adopted remote work for safety measures. However, many studies warn that remote work might make the employees feel isolated and make it difficult for the leadership to observe and evaluate employee performance. These challenges were preceded by an increased emphasis on informal, lateral, or collective styles of leadership, such as shared leadership. Therefore, this paper seeks to investigate the extent to which remote work promotes shared leadership. By disseminating a questionnaire to N = 90 employees working at a central public organisation (CPO) and statistically analysing it, the findings reveal surprising conclusions that highlight a positive correlation between remote work and shared leadership, including its components of bottom-up leadership, collective assumption of responsibility, and reciprocal interdependence, respectively.
    Keywords: remote work; shared leadership; collective assumption of responsibility; reciprocal interdependence; bottom-up leadership.

  • Architectural Framework For Multiplayer Cooperative Cloud Gaming To Optimize Quality Of Service   Order a copy of this article
    by Nimmagadda Srilakshmi, Naresh Kannan 
    Abstract: The gaming industry is getting more attraction from cloud services providing gaming applications for cooperative multiplayer gaming. Real-time services like cloud gaming are possible by performing necessary process-intensive tasks within the cloud. In this paper, an architectural model for supporting cooperative gaming towards multiplayer is proposed to improve the quality of service in terms of bandwidth and latency compared to existing architectural models. According to this study, the time it takes to change a video has grown by 95% compared to how well Ad hoc mobile cloudlets and the cloud do at sharing videos. Although P-frames, I-frames, and B-frames account for 23%, 78%, and 94% of the resource consumption, density in intra-stream P-frames is also considered. Similarly, resource and CPU use based on skewness are effective compared to mobile devices’ 95% faster video sharing and 77% shorter link delays.
