  • Robust visual tracking via randomly projected instance learning
    • Pages: 258 - 271
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 258-271, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to design a robust tracking algorithm which is suitable for the real-time requirement and solves the mistake labeling issue in the appearance model of trackers with the spare features. Design/methodology/approach This paper proposes a tracker to select the most discriminative randomly projected ferns and integrates a coarse-to-fine search strategy in this framework. First, the authors exploit multiple instance boosting learning to maximize the bag likelihood and select randomly projected fern from feature pool to degrade the effect of mistake labeling. Second, a coarse-to-fine search approach is first integrated into the framework of multiple instance learning (MIL) for less detections. Findings The quantitative and qualitative experiments demonstrate that the tracker has shown favorable performance in efficiency and effective among the competitors of tracking algorithms. Originality/value The proposed method selects the feature from the compressive domain by MIL AnyBoost and integrates the coarse-to-fine search strategy first to reduce the burden of detection. This paper designs a tracker with high speed and favorable results which is more suitable for real-time scene.

  • On increasing of integration rate of elements in a multi-level inverter
    • Pages: 272 - 286
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 272-286, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyze the redistribution of dopant and radiation defects to determine conditions which correspond to decreasing of elements in the considered inverter and at the same time to increase their density. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, the authors introduce an approach to increase integration rate of elements in a three-level inverter. The approach is based on decrease in the dimension of elements of the inverter (diodes and bipolar transistors) due to manufacturing of these elements by diffusion or ion implantation in a heterostructure with specific configuration and optimization of annealing of dopant and radiation defects. Findings The authors formulate recommendations to increase density of elements of the inverter with a decrease in their dimensions. Practical implications Optimization of manufacturing of integrated circuits and their elements. Originality/value The results of this paper are based on original analysis of transport of dopant with account transport and interaction of radiation defects.

  • Two efficient methods for solving Schlömilch’s integral
           equation
    • Pages: 287 - 309
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 287-309, August 2017.
      Purpose In this paper, the exact solutions of the Schlömilch’s integral equation and its linear and non-linear generalized formulas with application are solved by using two efficient iterative methods. The Schlömilch’s integral equations have many applications in atmospheric, terrestrial physics and ionospheric problems. They describe the density profile of electrons from the ionospheric for awry occurrence of the quasi-transverse approximations. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach First, the authors apply a regularization method combined with the standard homotopy analysis method to find the exact solutions for all forms of the Schlömilch’s integral equation. Second, the authors implement the regularization method with the variational iteration method for the same purpose. The effectiveness of the regularization-Homotopy method and the regularization-variational method is shown by using them for several illustrative examples, which have been solved by other authors using the so-called regularization-Adomian method. Findings The implementation of the two methods demonstrates the usefulness in finding exact solutions. Practical implications The authors have applied the developed methodology to the solution of the Rayleigh equation, which is an important equation in fluid dynamics and has a variety of applications in different fields of science and engineering. These include the analysis of batch distillation in chemistry, scattering of electromagnetic waves in physics, isotopic data in contaminant hydrogeology and others. Originality/value In this paper, two reliable methods have been implemented to solve several examples, where those examples represent the main types of the Schlömilch’s integral models. Each method has been accompanied with the use of the regularization method. This process constructs an efficient dealing to get the exact solutions of the linear and non-linear Schlömilch’s integral equation which is easy to implement. In addition to that, the accompanied regularization method with each of the two used methods proved its efficiency in handling many problems especially ill-posed problems, such as the Fredholm integral equation of the first kind.

      Purpose Current practices in data classification and retrieval have experienced a surge in the use of multimedia content. Identification of desired information from the huge image databases has been facing increased complexities for designing an efficient feature extraction process. Conventional approaches of image classification with text-based image annotation have faced assorted limitations due to erroneous interpretation of vocabulary and huge time consumption involved due to manual annotation. Content-based image recognition has emerged as an alternative to combat the aforesaid limitations. However, exploring rich feature content in an image with a single technique has lesser probability of extract meaningful signatures compared to multi-technique feature extraction. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to explore the possibilities of enhanced content-based image recognition by fusion of classification decision obtained using diverse feature extraction techniques. Design/methodology/approach Three novel techniques of feature extraction have been introduced in this paper and have been tested with four different classifiers individually. The four classifiers used for performance testing were K nearest neighbor (KNN) classifier, RIDOR classifier, artificial neural network classifier and support vector machine classifier. Thereafter, classification decisions obtained using KNN classifier for different feature extraction techniques have been integrated by Z-score normalization and feature scaling to create fusion-based framework of image recognition. It has been followed by the introduction of a fusion-based retrieval model to validate the retrieval performance with classified query. Earlier works on content-based image identification have adopted fusion-based approach. However, to the best of the authors’ knowledge, fusion-based query classification has been addressed for the first time as a precursor of retrieval in this work. Findings The proposed fusion techniques have successfully outclassed the state-of-the-art techniques in classification and retrieval performances. Four public data sets, namely, Wang data set, Oliva and Torralba (OT-scene) data set, Corel data set and Caltech data set comprising of 22,615 images on the whole are used for the evaluation purpose. Originality/value To the best of the authors’ knowledge, fusion-based query classification has been addressed for the first time as a precursor of retrieval in this work. The novel idea of exploring rich image features by fusion of multiple feature extraction techniques has also encouraged further research on dimensionality reduction of feature vectors for enhanced classification results.

  • Approximating interior bounded box of 3D character mesh model based on its
           skeleton and symmetry
    • Pages: 332 - 347
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 332-347, August 2017.
      Purpose In the process of robot shell design, it is necessary to match the shape of the input 3D original character mesh model and robot endoskeleton, in order to make the input model fit for robot and avoid collision. So, the purpose of this paper is to find an object of reference, which can be used for the process of shape matching. Design/methodology/approach In this work, the authors propose an interior bounded box (IBB) approach that derives from oriented bounding box (OBB). This kind of box is inside the closed mesh model. At the same time, it has maximum volume which is aligned with the object axis but is enclosed by all the mesh vertices. Based on the IBB of input mesh model and the OBB of robot endoskeleton, the authors can complete the process of shape matching. In this paper, the authors use an evolutionary algorithm, covariance matrix adaptation evolution strategy (CMA-ES), to approximate the IBB based on skeleton and symmetry of input character mesh model. Findings Based on the evolutionary algorithm CMA-ES, the optimal position and scale information of IBB can be found. The authors can obtain satisfactory IBB result after this optimization process. The output IBB has maximum volume and is enveloped by the input character mesh model as well. Originality/value To the best knowledge of the authors, the IBB is first proposed and used in the field of robot shell design. Taking advantage of the IBB, people can quickly obtain a shell model that fit for robot. At the same time, it can avoid collision between shell model and the robot endoskeleton.

  • Comparative study of swarm intelligence-based saliency computation
    • Pages: 348 - 361
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 348-361, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to propose a new algorithm chaotic pigeon-inspired optimization (CPIO), which can effectively improve the computing efficiency of the basic Itti’s model for saliency-based detection. The CPIO algorithm and relevant applications are aimed at air surveillance for target detection. Design/methodology/approach To compare the improvements of the performance on Itti’s model, three bio-inspired algorithms including particle swarm optimization (PSO), brain storm optimization (BSO) and CPIO are applied to optimize the weight coefficients of each feature map in the saliency computation. Findings According to the experimental results in optimized Itti’s model, CPIO outperforms PSO in terms of computing efficiency and is superior to BSO in terms of searching ability. Therefore, CPIO provides the best overall properties among the three algorithms. Practical implications The algorithm proposed in this paper can be extensively applied for fast, accurate and multi-target detections in aerial images. Originality/value CPIO algorithm is originally proposed, which is very promising in solving complicated optimization problems.

  • Wavelet transform-based steganographic method for secure data
           communication using OFDM system
    • Pages: 362 - 386
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 362-386, August 2017.
      Purpose Fueled by the rapid growth of internet, steganography has emerged as one of the promising techniques in the communication system to obscure the data. Steganography is defined as the process of concealing the data or message within media files without affecting the perception of the image. Media files, like audio, video, image, etc., are utilized to embed the message. Nowadays, steganography is also used to transmit the medical information or diagnostic reports. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, the novel wavelet transform-based steganographic method is proposed for secure data communication using OFDM system. The embedding and extraction process in the proposed steganography method exploits the wavelet transform. Initially, the cost matrix is estimated by the following three aspects: pixel intensity, edge transformation and wavelet transform. The cost estimation matrix provides the location of the cover image where the message is to be entrenched. Then, the wavelet transform is utilized to embed the message into the cover image according to the cost value. Subsequently, in the extraction process, the wavelet transform is applied to the embedded image to retrieve the message efficiently. Finally, in order to transfer the secret information over the channel, the newly developed wavelet-based steganographic method is employed for the OFDM system. Findings The experimental results are evaluated and performance is analyzed using PSNR and MSE parameters and then compared with existing systems. Thus, the outcome of our wavelet transform steganographic method achieves the PSNR of 71.5 dB which ensures the high imperceptibility of the image. Then, the outcome of the OFDM-based proposed steganographic method attains the higher PSNR of 71.07 dB that proves the confidentiality of the message. Originality/value In the authors’ previous work, the embedding and extraction process was done based on the cost estimation matrix. To enhance the security throughout the communication system, the novel wavelet-based embedding and extraction process is applied to the OFDM system in this paper. The idea behind this method is to attain a higher imperceptibility and robustness of the image.

  • Bridging the semantic gap with human perception based features for scene
           categorization
    • Pages: 387 - 406
      Abstract: International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 387-406, August 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to build a classification system which mimics the perceptual ability of human vision, in gathering knowledge about the structure, content and the surrounding environment of a real-world natural scene, at a quick glance accurately. This paper proposes a set of novel features to determine the gist of a given scene based on dominant color, dominant direction, openness and roughness features. Design/methodology/approach The classification system is designed at two different levels. At the first level, a set of low level features are extracted for each semantic feature. At the second level the extracted features are subjected to the process of feature evaluation, based on inter-class and intra-class distances. The most discriminating features are retained and used for training the support vector machine (SVM) classifier for two different data sets. Findings Accuracy of the proposed system has been evaluated on two data sets: the well-known Oliva-Torralba data set and the customized image data set comprising of high-resolution images of natural landscapes. The experimentation on these two data sets with the proposed novel feature set and SVM classifier has provided 92.68 percent average classification accuracy, using ten-fold cross validation approach. The set of proposed features efficiently represent visual information and are therefore capable of narrowing the semantic gap between low-level image representation and high-level human perception. Originality/value The method presented in this paper represents a new approach for extracting low-level features of reduced dimensionality that is able to model human perception for the task of scene classification. The methods of mapping primitive features to high-level features are intuitive to the user and are capable of reducing the semantic gap. The proposed feature evaluation technique is general and can be applied across any domain.
