  • Toward Enhancing the Energy Efficiency and Minimizing the SLA Violations
           in Cloud Data Centers

    • Abstract: Recently, the problem of Virtual Machine Placement (VMP) has received enormous attention from the research community due to its direct effect on the energy efficiency, resource utilization, and performance of the cloud data center. VMP is considered as a multidimensional bin packing problem, which is a type of NP-hard problem. The challenge in VMP is how to optimally place multiple independent virtual machines into a few physical servers to maximize a cloud provider’s revenue while meeting the Service Level Agreements (SLAs). In this paper, an effective multiobjective algorithm based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique for the VMP problem, referred to as VMPMOPSO, is proposed. The proposed VMPMOPSO utilizes the crowding entropy method to optimize the VMP and to improve the diversity among the obtained solutions as well as accelerate the convergence speed toward the optimal solution. VMPMOPSO was compared with a simple single-objective algorithm, called First-Fit-Decreasing (FFD), and two multiobjective ant colony and genetic algorithms. Two simulation experiments were conducted to verify the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed VMPMOPSO. The first experiment shows that the proposed algorithm has better performance than the algorithms we compared it to in terms of power consumption, SLA violation, and resource wastage. The second indicates that the Pareto optimal solutions obtained by applying VMPMOPSO have a good distribution and a better convergence than the comparative algorithms.

  • Inflow Forecast of Iranamadu Reservoir, Sri Lanka, under Projected Climate
           Scenarios Using Artificial Neural Networks

    • Abstract: Prediction of water resources for future years takes much attention from the water resources planners and relevant authorities. However, traditional computational models like hydrologic models need many data about the catchment itself. Sometimes these important data on catchments are not available due to many reasons. Therefore, artificial neural networks (ANNs) are useful soft computing tools in predicting real-world scenarios, such as forecasting future water availability from a catchment, in the absence of intensive data, which are required for modeling practices in the context of hydrology. These ANNs are capable of building relationships to nonlinear real-world problems using available data and then to use that built relationship to forecast future needs. Even though Sri Lanka has an extensive usage of water resources for many activities, including drinking water supply, irrigation, hydropower development, navigation, and many other recreational purposes, forecasting studies for water resources are not being carried out. Therefore, there is a significant gap in forecasting water availability and water needs in the context of Sri Lanka. Thus, this paper presents an artificial neural network model to forecast the inflows of one of the most important reservoirs in northern Sri Lanka using the upstream catchment’s rainfall. Future rainfall data are extracted using regional climate models for the years 2021–2050 and the inflows of the reservoir are forecasted using the validated neural network model. Several training algorithms including Levenberg–Marquardt (LM), BFGS quasi-Newton (BFG), scaled conjugate gradient (SCG) have been used to find the best fitting training algorithm to the prediction process of the inflows against the measured inflows. Results revealed that the LM training algorithm outperforms the other tests algorithm in developing the prediction model. In addition, the forecasted results using the projected climate scenarios clearly showcase the benefit of using the forecasting model in solving future water resource management to avoid or to minimize future water scarcity. Therefore, the validated model can effectively be used for proper planning of the proposed drinking water supply scheme to the nearby urban city, Jaffna in northern Sri Lanka.

  • Image Retrieval Using Low Level and Local Features Contents: A
           Comprehensive Review

    • Abstract: Billions of multimedia data files are getting created and shared on the web, mainly social media websites. The explosive increase in multimedia data, especially images and videos, has created an issue of searching and retrieving the relevant data from the archive collection. In the last few decades, the complexity of the image data has increased exponentially. Text-based image retrieval techniques do not meet the needs of the users due to the difference between image contents and text annotations associated with an image. Various methods have been proposed in recent years to tackle the problem of the semantic gap and retrieve images similar to the query specified by the user. Image retrieval based on image contents has attracted many researchers as it uses the visual content of the image such as color, texture, and shape feature. The low-level image features represent the image contents as feature vectors. The query image feature vector is compared with the dataset images feature vectors to retrieve similar images. The main aim of this article is to appraise the various image retrieval methods based on feature extraction, description, and matching content that has been presented in the last 10–15 years based on low-level feature contents and local features and proposes a promising future research direction for researchers.

  • Deep Neural Learning Adaptive Sequential Monte Carlo for Automatic Image
           and Speech Recognition

    • Abstract: To enhance the performance of image classification and speech recognition, the optimizer is considered an important factor for achieving high accuracy. The state-of-the-art optimizer can perform to serve in applications that may not require very high accuracy, yet the demand for high-precision image classification and speech recognition is increasing. This study implements an adaptive method for applying the particle filter technique with a gradient descent optimizer to improve model learning performance. Using a pretrained model helps reduce the computational time to deploy an image classification model and uses a simple deep convolutional neural network for speech recognition. The applied method results in a higher speech recognition accuracy score—89.693% for the test dataset—than the conventional method, which reaches 89.325%. The applied method also performs well on the image classification task, reaching an accuracy of 89.860% on the test dataset, better than the conventional method, which has an accuracy of 89.644%. Despite a slight difference in accuracy, the applied optimizer performs well in this dataset overall.

  • An Improved Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm forOptimal Allocation of
           Distributed Generation Units in Radial Power Systems

    • Abstract: In this paper, an improved particle swarm optimization method (PSO) is proposed to optimally size and place a DG unit in an electrical power system so as to improve voltage profile and reduce active power losses in the system. An IEEE 34 distribution bus system is used as a case study for this research. A new equation of weight inertia is proposed so as to improve the performance of the PSO conventional algorithm. This development is done by controlling the inertia weight which affects the updating velocity of particles in the algorithm. Matlab codes are developed for the adapted electrical power system and the improved PSO algorithm. Results show that the proposed PSO algorithm successfully finds the optimal size and location of the desired DG unit with a capacity of 1.6722 MW at bus number 10. This makes the voltage magnitude of the selected bus equal to 1.0055 pu and improves the status of the electrical power system in general. The minimum value of fitness losses using the applied algorithm is found to be 0.0.0406 while the average elapsed time is 62.2325 s. In addition to that, the proposed PSO algorithm reduces the active power losses by 31.6%. This means that the average elapsed time is reduced by 21% by using the proposed PSO algorithm as compared to the conventional PSO algorithm that is based on the liner inertia weight equation.

  • Agricultural Model for Allocation of Crops Using Pollination Intelligence

    • Abstract: An agricultural model for allocation of crops is considered in this work using Pollination Intelligence Method. The model was constructed to solve farmer’s decision making in allocating crops to a piece of land using market price, known yield of crops, cost incurred during planting, and the total amount of land available. A new class of metaheuristic method called Flower Pollinated Algorithm is also presented in this work to solve the designed model. An improved version of the Flower Pollinated Algorithm called Pollination Intelligence Algorithm using an iterative scheme to override the switch parameter in Flower Pollinated Algorithm is also presented and used in solving the designed model. A case study of a farmer in Ife, Osun State, Nigeria, was used to implement the model, and the results obtained suggested that instead of allocating crops to land randomly based on farmer’s intuition, cost of planting, yield of crops, and market price were factors that must be considered by farmers for optimal profit before planting crops.

  • Some Criteria of the Knowledge Representation Method for an Intelligent
           Problem Solver in STEM Education

    • Abstract: Nowadays, building intelligent systems for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education is necessary to support the studying of learners. Intelligent problem solver (IPS) is a system that can be able to solve or tutor how to solve the problems automatically. Learners only declare hypothesis and goal of problems based on a sufficient specification language. They can request the program to solve it automatically or to give instructions that help them to solve it themselves. Knowledge representation plays a vital role in these kinds of intelligent systems. There are various methods for knowledge representation; however, they do not meet the requirements of an IPS in STEM education. In this paper, we propose the criteria of a knowledge model for an IPS in education. These criteria orient to develop a method for knowledge representation to meet actual requirements in practice, especially pedagogical requirements. For proving the effectiveness of these criteria, a knowledge model is also constructed. This model can satisfy these criteria and be applied to build IPS for courses, such as mathematics and physics.

           Level Forecasting in Udupi District, India

    • Abstract: Groundwater is a precious natural resource. Groundwater level (GWL) forecasting is crucial in the field of water resource management. Measurement of GWL from observation-wells is the principle source of information about the aquifer and is critical to its evaluation. Most part of the Udupi district of Karnataka State in India consists of geological formations: lateritic terrain and gneissic complex. Due to the topographical ruggedness and inconsistency in rainfall, the GWL in Udupi region is declining continually and most of the open wells are drying-up during the summer. Hence, the current research aimed at developing a groundwater level forecasting model by using hybrid long short-term memory-lion algorithm (LSTM-LA). The historical GWL and rainfall data from an observation well from Udupi district, located in Karnataka state, India, were used to develop the model. The prediction accuracy of the hybrid LSTM-LA model was better than that of the feedforward neural network (FFNN) and the isolated LSTM models. The hybrid LSTM-LA-based forecasting model is promising for a larger dataset.

  • Development of Smart Plate Number Recognition System for Fast Cars with
           Web Application

    • Abstract: Traffic law violation has been recognized as a major cause for road accidents in most parts of the world with majority occurring in developing countries. Even with the presence of rules and regulations stipulated against this, violators are still on the increase. This is due to the fact that the rules are not properly enforced by appropriate authorities in those parts of the world. Therefore, a system needs to be designed to assist law enforcement agencies to impose these rules to improve road safety and reduce road accidents. This work uses a Vehicle Plate Number Recognition (VNPR) system which is a real-time embedded system to automatically recognize license plate numbers. It provides an alternative means to VPNR using an open-source library known as openCV. The main aim of the system is to use image processing to identify vehicles violating traffic by their plate numbers. It consists of an IR sensor for detecting the vehicle. During testing, a minimum time was set for the sensor to detect the object which was recorded by the microprocessor. Once it was less than the set time, the camera was triggered to capture the plate number and store the image on the Raspberry Pi. The image captured is processed by the Raspberry Pi to extract the numbers on the image. The numbers on the capture imaged were viewed on a web page via an IP address. The system if implemented can be used to improve road safety and control traffic of emerging smart cities. It will also be used to apply appropriate sanctions for traffic law violators.

  • Arabic Sentiment Analysis: A Systematic Literature Review

    • Abstract: With the recently grown attention from different research communities for opinion mining, there is an evolving body of work on Arabic Sentiment Analysis (ASA). This paper introduces a systematic review of the existing literature relevant to ASA. The main goals of the review are to support research, to propose further areas for future studies in ASA, and to smoothen the progress of other researchers’ search for related studies. The findings of the review propose a taxonomy for sentiment classification methods. Furthermore, the limitations of existing approaches are highlighted in the preprocessing step, feature generation, and sentiment classification methods. Some likely trends for future research with ASA are suggested in both practical and theoretical aspects.

  • Fish Detection Using Deep Learning

    • Abstract: Recently, human being’s curiosity has been expanded from the land to the sky and the sea. Besides sending people to explore the ocean and outer space, robots are designed for some tasks dangerous for living creatures. Take the ocean exploration for an example. There are many projects or competitions on the design of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) which attracted many interests.
      Authors of this article have learned the necessity of platform upgrade from a previous AUV design project, and would like to share the experience of one task extension in the area of fish detection. Because most of the embedded systems have been improved by fast growing computing and sensing technologies, which makes them possible to incorporate more and more complicated algorithms. In an AUV, after acquiring surrounding information from sensors, how to perceive and analyse corresponding information for better judgement is one of the challenges. The processing procedure can mimic human being’s learning routines. An advanced system with more computing power can facilitate deep learning feature, which exploit many neural network algorithms to simulate human brains. In this paper, a convolutional neural network (CNN) based fish detection method was proposed. The training data set was collected from the Gulf of Mexico by a digital camera. To fit into this unique need, three optimization approaches were applied to the CNN: data augmentation, network simplification, and training process speed up. Data augmentation transformation provided more learning samples; the network was simplified to accommodate the artificial neural network; the training process speed up is introduced to make the training process more time efficient. Experimental results showed that the proposed model is promising, and has the potential to be extended to other underwear objects.

  • Semantic Smart World Framework

    • Abstract: This paper presents a general Semantic Smart World framework (SSWF), to cover the Migratory birds’ paths. This framework combines semantic and big data technologies to support meaning for big data. In order to build the proposed smart world framework, technologies such as cloud computing, semantic technology, big data, data visualization, and the Internet of Things are hybrid. We demonstrate the proposed framework through a case study of automatic prediction of air quality index and different weather phenomena in the different locations in the world. We discover the association between air pollution and increasing weather conditions. The experimental results indicate that the framework performance is suitable for heterogeneous big data.
