  • Quadratic difference expansion based Reversible Watermarking for
           relational database

    • Authors: Seema Babusingh Siledar; Sharvari Tamane
      Abstract: With the increase in usage of databases over the internet, it is becoming difficult to recognize genuine database owner. To protect ownership, digital watermarking has emerged as an effective solution. However, embedding watermark into database would result in loss of data quality.  Most state-of-the-art methods introduce distortion into the original data to a large extent.  In this work, reversible watermarking technique using quadratic difference expansion has been proposed. First, the numeric attributes with highest pearson correlation coefficient are selected to reduce distortion in the database.  The watermark is then generated by extracting bits from the selected attributes using quadratic difference expansion. Watermarked database is obtained after the generated watermark is embedded into the original database. To resolve ownership conflict, the genuine owner can easily extract watermark from watermarked database and recover original database. Indian Liver Patient dataset is used to conduct experiments. Results show that the proposed method is 100% robust against insertion attack. In case of 90% modification and 50% deletion atatck, it is observed that around 50% of the watermark can be recovered. Moreover, watermark embedding results in only 0.02% change in the mean of original database. It ensures that distortion caused due to watermarking leads to lower effect on data quality.

  • Onto_TML: Auto-labeling of topic models

    • Authors: Supriya Ashish Kinariwala; Sachin Deshmukh
      Abstract: Text mining is a new branch of AI that employs natural language processing techniques to convert unstructured text into a structured format for easier comprehension. It is becoming increasingly significant in practically every field since it allows users to extract information from large amounts of text or unstructured data. Topic modelling is one of the most important tools in text mining. Topic modelling aids in the discovery of hidden topics, which are the patterns of co-occurring words. Its purpose is to uncover hidden topics in massive amounts of unstructured data. However, because the topics detected are a list of the top n words in a topic, they may not give the viewer with a highly coherent image of the document. As a result, automatic topic labelling has been investigated in order to improve understanding of the topics. In this article we propose a novel method Onto_TML; ontology based auto-labelling for topic modelling algorithms and domain specific CEPS_ontology. Protégé tool is used to design CEPS_Ontology, comprises of four domains: Crime, Environment, Politics and Sports. Onto_TML uses CEPS_Ontology to assign appropriate generic label to the top words generated by topic modelling algorithms. For experimentation we have used two datasets News Headline dataset and News Category V-2 dataset and LDA, NMF and SeaNMF topic modeling algorithms. Empirical evaluation shows that Onto_TML has generated appropriate labels for the top words given by topic modeling algorithms

  • Trans Fatty Acids: Sources, associated medical ailments and their
           alternatives - A recent advances review

    • Authors: Poonam Lakra; Indu Nashier Gahlawat, Manisha Wadhwa
      Abstract: Trans fatty acids finds extensive usage in the food industry. The vegetable ghee or Vanaspati obtained from partial hydrogenation of vegetable oil is primary source of trans fats. The trans fats are also naturally found in small amounts in dairy and meat products. The trans fats possess selected good functional properties like higher melting point and longer shelf life, but their use has been associated with a number of health issues like cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and allergy. Other adverse effects include increase in the total and LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol values which further aggravates atherosclerosis. Several efforts have been initiated at national and international level to reduce the consumption of trans fats. In the Indian scenario, a multisectoral proactive approach at the production and consumer level is required to eliminate trans fats from the food supply.

  • Evaluation of cooling efficiency improvement of the simple office for
           small factories using heat dissipation with cold water circulation

    • Authors: Dong-Hyun Cho
      Abstract: This study was conducted to implement the improvement of heating efficiency by the cold water flowing in the X-L pipes inside the walls of a small room according to changes in the mass flow rate of the cold water. More comfortable cooling, which is also beneficial to health, was implemented. The radiant heat transfer cooling was implemented with the absorption of heat energy by the cold water flowing in the X-L pipes inside the walls of the small room without any movement or circulation of the air existing in the interior space of the room. In addition, this study significantly reduced heat energy consumption for radiant cooling and manufacturing costs by investigating accessories for cooling devices suitable for a room not larger than six square meter. As the flow rate of the cold water increased, the heating efficiency of the small room improved proportionally.

  • Extraction of Oxygen-Enriched-Air from Water through Vapor Bubble
           Diffusion

    • Authors: Jeong-A Hong; Jong-Soo Lee, Yong-Du Jun
      Abstract: Present study deals with the method of extracting dissolved gas from water and the characterization of the extracted gas in terms of its oxygen concentration and the possible extractable gas amount. This topic has at least two important aspects; one is on the usability of the extracted dissolved gas from water which is believed to have higher oxygen concentration than the atmosphere, and the other is on the achievable level of deaeration by using the present deaeration method. In the present study, a degassing process based on micro-vapor-bubble diffusion is proposed and theoretically reviewed based on the physical laws such as Henry’s law on solubility, Fick’s law of diffusion, and the vapor pressure of water as a condition for vapor bubble generation. An experimental apparatus is set up for the present study which is composed of a sealed water tank (0.65m×0.65m×1.0m, stainless steel) with pressure control, a micro-vapor-bubble generator, and the measurement system with sensors for oxygen (for gas mixture) and dissolved oxygen (for water) contents as well as for pressures and temperatures. The limiting extractable amount of dissolved gas from water and the oxygen concentration of the extracted gas mixture is successfully measured for demonstration through the present experimental work. Through the present study 5.9 liters of extract gas with oxygen concentration of 30% is captured out of 296 liters of water at room conditions of 17℃ and 1 atm.

  • A study on the characteristics of Cooling Load due to the heat absorption
           of cold water circulating inside the Ocher Walls of small Cabins of one
           person

    • Authors: Dong-Hyun Cho
      Abstract: This study was conducted to lay cold water X-L pipes inside the ocher walls of a cabin for one person and install cold water X-L pipes inside the cold water panels for radiant cooling with the absorption of thermal energy by the cold water for the first time at home and abroad. The air temperature distribution measured in an experimental study and the air temperature distribution shown in the results of simulations in this study were in good agreement. The air flow rate in the simulations was shown to be much lower than that of cooling by forced convective heat transfer, which is the existing cooling method. The results of simulations in this study verified that cooling is achieved by radiative heat transfer, which is beneficial to health. As the mass flow rate of the cold water circulating in the cold water X-L pipes increases, the air temperature inside the small cabin for one person decreased proportionally.

  • Synergistic effect of hybrid fillers on transport behavior of NR/EPDM
           blends

    • Authors: Manju V Nair; Anil Kumar S, Susan Joseph, Ajesh K Zachariah, Hanna J Maria, Sabu Thomas
      Abstract: Organically modified nanoclay (OMMT), silane modified halloysite nanotube (MHNT) and a hybrid of both modified nanoclay and halloysite nanotube were added to natural rubber (NR) and ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM) blend (60NR:40EPDM) matrix. The addition of these nanofillers affected the morphology and transport behaviour of the matrix considerably. The combinations of OMMT with MHNT having tubular morphology have shown specific result in synergistic behavior of solvent diffusion. The effect of nature of solvent and size of solvent molecule on the transport behavior of NR/EPDM blend nanocomposites in the presence of hybrid fillers were conducted. The cross-link density measurement and morphology analysis by TEM analysis confirms the filler networks and entrapped polymer chain segment. The quantity of immobilized polymer chain due to filler network formation has been determined by dynamic mechanical analysis and a nice connection was settled between the transport characteristics and polymer chain confinement. The analysis of swelling coefficients and diffusion parameters confirmed the excellent barrier property of NR/EPDM matrix filled with dual filler. The mode of transport through the rubber blend nanocomposites remained anomalous. Peppas-Sahlin model is well fitted with results.

  • Assessing impact of Air Pollution on behavior of school children in
           Greater Noida, India

    • Authors: Vinod K. Shanwal
      Abstract: Pollution has become one of the most prevalent issues faced by all the countries around the world. Air pollution, the leading form of pollution, is known to cause many diseases like lung problems, early stoke, pulmonary diseases, respiratory infections. Along with physical problems, pollution leads to numerous behavioral and psychological issues. Children are the most vulnerable population that are effected by prolonged pollution. The relevance of worst effects of pollution on children is evident from number of studies that have been conducted over the decades. Despite the availability of vast literature about effects of pollution, there are less studies that focus on an in depth analysis of effects of pollution on children. There is lack of structured measures that can be followed to deal with harmful effects of pollution on children. The current study intends to evaluate the psychosocial implications of air pollution on the behavior of adolescents. It was a descriptive observable cohort study conducted on a sample of 85 school children by using structured interview schedule. The findings of the study indicates significant  influence of air pollution on the behavioral aspects of the children including dependency, confusion, cries a lot, required attention, restlessness and hyperactiveness.
