  • Contourlet transform and morphological reconstruction based retinal blood
           vessel segmentation
    • Authors: N. Sathya, K. Karuppasamy, P. Suresh
      Pages: 105 - 119
      Abstract: Retinal images are used in ocular fundus operations as well as human recognition. It has significant role in early detection of diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy and retinitis pigmentosa by comparing the states of retinal blood vessels. The novel vessel segmentation method presented in this work starts with the contrast adjustment of green channel image representation to increase the dynamic range of the grey levels. A multi-scale method for retinal image contrast enhancement based on Contourlet transform is employed on the contrast adjusted image. The Contourlet transform provides better performance in enhancing the vessel-like segments than the Wavelets and Curvelets with its anisotropy and directionality characteristics, and is well-suited for multi-scale and multi-directional edge enhancement. Contourlet coefficients obtained via the contourlet transform in corresponding sub-bands are modified using a non-linear function. Noise is taken for more precise reconstruction and better visualisation. The proposed algorithm is best suited for fast processing applications.

  • Upper alpha neurofeedback training enhances working memory performance
           using LabVIEW
    • Authors: J. Sofia Bobby, S. Prakash
      Pages: 120 - 132
      Abstract: This study aimed to improve working memory performance by the enhancement of upper alpha band of electroencephalography (EEG) using Neurofeedback Training (NFT). Twenty five healthy subjects were trained on five sessions by means of feedback provided in the form of visual cues. The EEG signal is acquired using single channel electrode and connected to the system through Data Acquisition Device (DAQ). The upper alpha band (10-13 Hz) signal is extracted using LabVIEW software. Then the subject is asked to stay relaxed by viewing the natural scenes displaying in the system. With appropriate protocol designed for NFT, the end results showed that the participants were able to learn to increase the relative amplitude levels in individual alpha band during neurofeedback training and working memory performance was significantly improved by the enhancement of upper alpha band. On the first and last session, cognitive skill is tested by a conceptual span test and the scores are compared. In this study, 25 subjects showed significant success of training.

  • An optimisation method for fusion-based reversible embedding and
           retrieving in MRI/CT medical images
    • Authors: G. Saranya, S. Nirmala Devi
      Pages: 133 - 150
      Abstract: Embedding and retrieving have an extensive scope of applications in the medical field. This method is worthwhile in strengthening the particulars of patients from the trespasser with prime storage capacity. The medical images of different modalities along with Patient Medical Image (PMI) can be conveyed to the medical practitioner across the globe for the opinion. Owing to the bandwidth and storage restraint, medical images must be compressed prior to the transference and storage. This paper presents a novel method for fusion-based embedding and retrieving by using Modified Complex Contourlet Transform (MCCT) and Modified Grey Wolf Optimisation (MGWO). It also determines the compression method by using Complex Contourlet Transform (CCT). Hence, this paper suggests that the fusion-based embedding and retrieving technique based on MCCT and MGWO is providing better hiding capacity. The improved values of compression ratio (CR), space saving (SS), mean square error (MSE) and peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) show that the new novel method fulfils the properties of the embedding and retrieving technique.

  • Dual-tree complex wavelet with modified SPIHT algorithm for video
           compression
    • Authors: K. Muthulakshmi, V. Seenivasagam
      Pages: 151 - 166
      Abstract: For efficient video compression, the 3 Dimensional Set-Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees (3D-SPIHT) algorithm and 3D wavelet transform are used. The 3D wavelet transform is based on the group of frames concept. For decomposition, wavelet filters are used. The transform coefficients are coded by 3D SPIHT. In the reconstruction phase, 3D SPIHT decoding algorithm and inverse transforms are employed. A modified SPIHT algorithm called Block Based Pass Parallel SPIHT (BPSPIHT) is employed for video compression to overcome the slow processing speed of SPIHT. The video is detached into individual frames. Then Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Dual Tree Complex Wavelet Transform (DTCWT) are employed on that frames. The wavelet coefficients are encoded using BPSIHT encoder and the generated bit streams are decoded by BPSPIHT decoder. For the reconstruction, inverse wavelet transform is applied and the calibre is measured in terms of PSNR, MSE and Compression Ratio (CR).

  • Improved fuzzy clustering and Legendre level sets for segmentation of
           multiple tumours in low contrast liver CTA images
    • Authors: V.M. Selvalakshmi, S. Nirmala Devi
      Pages: 167 - 181
      Abstract: Accurate and fast image segmentation algorithms are of great importance in medical image processing. In this paper, a new, rapid and efficient region-based segmentation method for Liver tumour segmentation initialised using spatial FCM clustering technique is proposed. In Legendre level sets, the area of interest illumination is represented in lower dimensional subspace. A set of predefined basis functions such as Legendre basis function is used to represent the lower dimensional subspace. This kind of representation enables the robust segmentation of heterogeneous objects even in the presence of noise. The proposed algorithm has been compared with other existing algorithms and its performance evaluation is carried out in CTA abdomen images of various patients. The obtained results prove its effectiveness in low contrast inhomogeneous tumour segmentation.

           healthcare
    • Authors: Gunasekaran Manogaran, Daphne Lopez
      Pages: 182 - 211
      Abstract: Big Data has gained much attention from researchers in healthcare, bioinformatics, and information sciences. As a result, data production at this stage will be 44 times greater than that in 2009. Hence, the volume, velocity, and variety of data rapidly increase. Hence, it is difficult to store, process and visualise this huge data using traditional technologies. Many organisations such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook are used big data for different use cases in the social networking domain. Also, implementations of such architectures of the use cases have been published worldwide. However, a conceptual architecture for specific big data application has been limited. The intention of this paper is application-oriented architecture for big data systems, which is based on a study of published big data architectures for specific use cases. This paper also provides an overview of the state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms for processing big data in healthcare and other applications.

  • An efficient feature extraction technique for palm-print recognition
           system
    • Authors: G. Yashodha, R. Bremananth
      Pages: 227 - 249
      Abstract: Palm-print recognition has been investigated over many decades. Palm-print recognition has many phases in which region mapping and feature extraction play an important role. In this paper, we propose a region mapping model using Gradient Bidirectional Boundary Tracing (GBBT) method. We also propose a novel scheme of palm-print recognition using skeleton morphological (SM) operations to extract the combined shape, texture and colour features of the gray-scale palm-print image. To this extent we explore the idea of GBBT and SM that comprises of 11 features whose responses on the given palm-print image are processed independently and classified using Multi-SVM (MSVM). The proposed model is compared with KNN and SVM to demonstrate its efficiency. Extensive experiments are carried out on different large-scale publicly available palm-print databases in terms of its sensitivity specificity and accuracy. The experimental results indicate that our approach produces 2.509% and 2.6342% more efficacy than SVM and KNN methods, respectively.

  • MQRC: QoS aware multimedia data replication in cloud
    • Authors: P.J. Kumar, P. Ilango
      Pages: 250 - 266
      Abstract: Multimedia data need stringent Quality of Service (QoS) requirements to handle it effectively. Replication is performed to enhance data availability and fault tolerance. Selection of node for replication is important to place multimedia content. Several replication algorithms have been proposed in the literature to replicate data in different computing architectures such as Client-Server distributed systems, Peer to Peer, Wireless Sensor networks, Mobile Ad hoc networks, Vehicular Ad hoc network and Cloud. The underlying difference in the architecture demands a custom replication approach for each of computing/network environment. Since multimedia data require a stringent QoS measures, we propose an algorithm to replicate Multimedia data with QoS awareness in the cloud environment (MQRC). We study the architecture of Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and propose an efficient Multimedia QoS aware replication algorithm which allocates replica considering the QoS requirements of multimedia data such as delay, jitter, bandwidth, loss rate and error rate. We have performed a simulation using the proposed approach. The results obtained shows a significant reduction in the number of QoS violated replicas compared to the existing approach used by Hadoop such as Random replication.

  • Face recognition using Zernike Moments with illumination variations
    • Authors: N. Rathika, P. Suresh, N. Sakthieswaran
      Pages: 267 - 281
      Abstract: Face recognition system is an important area of human biometrics and a successful application of pattern recognition. Variable illumination conditions in face images are main obstacle in face recognition systems. To deal with this problem, this paper presents robust illumination-insensitive pre-processing, Zernike Moments-based feature extraction and L<SUB align="right">1-norm distance method. In pre-processing the input face image is transformed into an illumination-insensitive image by integral normalised gradient image (INGI) method. Features are extracted by Zernike Moments. Finally, face recognition task is performed by L<SUB align="right">1-norm distance measurement. Experimental tests on the CMU-PIE face database are performed. The proposed method shows 84% verification rate under different illuminations.

  • Unconstrained face recognition in surveillance videos using moment
           invariants
    • Authors: Murugesan Chengathir Selvi, Karuppiah Muneeswaran
      Pages: 282 - 299
      Abstract: Video-based face recognition is a challenging research area. In the unconstrained surveillance videos, recognition of faces with arbitrary poses, illumination, expressions, noise and blurriness is highly difficult task. In this paper, an efficient moment invariant face descriptor (MFD) is proposed. The geometric feature points of eyes, nose and mouth are extracted using face block filtering. These descriptors consist of 33 moment invariant features (11 from each). In these 11 moment invariant features, three of them are geometric moments and the remaining eight are central moments. It provides robustness against variability due to changes in localised regions of the faces. A public unconstrained video data set with three cameras is used. The proposed algorithm is compared with LBP, LPQ, HOG and moment invariant feature descriptors against different classifiers such as J48, random forest and multilayer perceptron. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm using random forest classifier improves face recognition rate.

  • Web-based multi-featured input diabetes mellitus diagnosis system using
           combined ANN-ARM techniques
    • Authors: K. Sridar, D. Shanthi
      Pages: 300 - 309
      Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease that makes millions of lives miserable. The International Diabetes Federation survey states that 246 million people suffered from type I and type II diabetes. We have proposed a hybrid analysis, which takes real-time glucometer readings, clinical data as numeral or text inputs and retinal image (visual) as another input. The extracted features are trained, dataset formation and association analysis are done by Back Propagation algorithm (ANN) and Apriori algorithm (ARM). The same are analysed through hierarchical extreme learning machines (H-ELM) Neural Network (ANN) and FP-Growth (ARM) algorithms together. The proposed diagnosis system is implemented as a web-based application. The output of the system analyses the given inputs and shows the severity of the diabetes mellitus as type I, type II and type III. The patients themselves can identify their risk status. Thus the effective diagnosis of diabetes with better accuracy is achieved.

  • Prediction of rescuable cancer mutants in p53 mutation network using
           centrality measures
    • Authors: R. Geetha Ramani, P. Nancy, Shomona Gracia Jacob
      Pages: 310 - 325
      Abstract: In graph theory and network analysis, gauges of centrality discover significant vertices within a graph or network. Centrality which is optimal for one application is often sub-optimal for a different application. The traditional centrality measures, degree focuses on visibility, betweenness focuses on vertex control of communication, and closeness focuses on vertex independency. This research aims at proposing a novel centrality measure - Entropy based Shortest Path (ESP) which focuses on a node's potential to expand interaction and identify rescuable cancer mutants in the p53 mutation records that depict the amino-acid substitutions obtained by yeast assays. We show that the traditional centrality measures resulted in different assessment of the vertices (proteins) while the proposed measure tailored to the investigations of p53 mutation network was instrumental in the identification of new rescuable cancer mutants. The proposed measure is also applied to social networks like Zachary karate network to validate its correctness in identifying influential nodes.

      Pages: 326 - 335
      Abstract: In optical networks, transfer of data happens at long-haul in form of light. While transmitting data at long distance make sure that the delivery of data and quality of service must guarantee. To ensure the QoS, delivery of data, the network environment must be a fault tolerance. In this paper a novel algorithm, Fault Alarm and Location Algorithm is launched for detecting and locating the fault occurrence in network to create fault tolerance environment.

           stress on brain
    • Authors: Arnab Rakshit, Anwesha Banerjee, Ankita Mazumder, Poulami Ghosh, Anilesh Dey, D.N. Tibarewala
      Pages: 336 - 369
      Abstract: This work aims to study the development of stress in different section of brain under various mental stress conditions, while the brain performs variety of cognitive tasks. The cognitive tasks are designed so as to cover a wide range of brain activities, which includes puzzle solving, decision making, mathematical calculation, memorisation and recollection, correlation and matching. The purpose is to see whether different level of stresses could be developed under varied conditions. In this article we use Multifractal Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (MFDFA) to observe the different changes in different lobes of the brain. It is found that there is an effect on frontal and parietal lobes during the cognitive task. In order to confirm the results of MFDFA analysis, we also obtain topological scalp map. The features of topological scalp map are found to support the results of MFDFA.
