  • A Comprehensive Study on Relative Distances of Hand Landmarks Approach for
           American Sign Language Gesture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Communication with people with hearing or speaking disabilities is always difficult when there is no knowledge of sign language. The presence of sign language is not enough to communicate smoothly, this process requires another easy medium for communication to make it more efficient, that is, via a digital medium. This paper proposes using Feed-Forward Neural Networks on hand landmarks for real-time sign language identification. The hand landmarks identification was carried out using the MediaPipe Hands library. This approach would make the classification problem efficient by making it faster and requiring less memory. Through this, we aim to bridge the gap between the difficulties that arise during communication between people who do and do not know American Sign Language.

  • Hybrid WCA–PSO Optimized Ensemble Extreme Learning Machine and Wavelet
           Transform for Detection and Classification of Epileptic Seizure from EEG
           Signals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Epilepsy seizures are sudden, chaotic neurological functions. The complexity of the brain is revealed via electroencephalography (EEG). Visual examination-based EEG signal analysis is time-consuming, expensive, and difficult. Epilepsy-related mortality is a serious concern. In the diagnostic procedure, computer-assisted diagnosis approaches for precise and automatic detection and classification of epileptic seizures play a crucial role. Due to the classifier's high processing time requirements caused by its mathematical complexity and computational time, we propose a hybrid water cycle algorithm (WCA)–particle swarm optimization (PSO) optimized ensemble extreme learning machine (EELM) classification of seizures to improve the classification performance of the classifier. Firstly, we use feature extraction by utilizing the wavelet transform. The extracted features are aligned as input to the WCA–PSO–EELM for classification. The particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is used to initialize the optimization variables of a WCA algorithm, and the WCA algorithm is used to optimize the input weight of the ELM (i.e., the WCA–PSO–ELM (WPELM)) for classification of seizure and non-seizure EEG signals. University of Bonn database is used for the experiment. The performance measures sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy are considered and achieved 98.78%, 99.23%, and 99.12%, that is, higher than those of other conventional algorithms. To validate the robustness of the WCA–PSO algorithm, three benchmark functions are considered for optimization. The comparison results are presented to visualize the uniqueness of the proposed WCA–PSO–EELM classifier. From the comparison results, it was observed that the proposed WCA–PSO–EELM model outperformed in classifying the seizure and non-seizure EEG signals.

  • Improvement in Motor Skills, Attention, and Working Memory in Mild
           Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease Patients Using COSMA
           Cognitive App

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There are a rapid growth of adults with cognitive impairments and an increasing need for cognitive stimulation and rehabilitation to delay cognitive deterioration. COSMA, a cognitive gaming app, was developed to assist cognitive stimulation in people with cognitive decline and dementia. Therefore, the study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of COSMA in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The study involved a treatment group who played COSMA at home and during laboratory visits for 28 days and a control group who played only during laboratory visits. Each group was measured on days 1–14–28, where recordings of playing COSMA and Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB) tests were taken. The results showed that the MCI treatment group improved sensorimotor skills in 14 days, sustained attention, spatial planning, working and visual memory, and learning in 28 days. The AD treatment group improved in sustained attention in 14 and 28 days and showed a lower cognitive decline in working memory compared to the AD control group in 28 days. Both control groups did not show any level of improvement. Even though the progression of the MCI was faster than that of the early AD, the study showed inspired results of cognitive improvement in both groups. COSMA showed evidence that cognitive stimulation and rehabilitation are possible in MCI and AD and that it is an effective and efficient non-pharmacological therapeutic tool in these groups of patients.

  • Machine Vision for Device Tracking in a Smart Manufacturing Environment
           Based on Augmented Reality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In a controlled network environment, such as the smart indoor manufacturing environment, the device identification and detection of components is challenging without prior knowledge of the design and implementation process. Thus, the concept of device identification for diagnosis and equipment maintenance by means of markerless augmented reality (AR) merits investigation. AR, when coupled with machine vision, caters for obtaining real-time device information regarding the position and features of the robotic elements within indoor manufacturing plants. Thus, this article proposes an efficient machine vision model to detect and identify devices based within a manufacturing plant, with the aid of AR for extending the device operational details. This offers an alternative solution in the absence of user built-in maps for the calculation of device positions based on uncertainties of the exact locations. To achieve this, a two-part validation is conducted involving (1) device recognition based on position and (2) Data integration to A Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) model developed in National Instruments Labview. The findings demonstrate that the AR application can detect devices within the manufacturing plant without the need for alteration. The results also indicate that the application can be integrated into a SCADA model without the need to alter the application, provided that the array index is the same. Only when the array index differs are alterations necessary for utilising the AR application.

  • ECG Data Compression Using of Empirical Wavelet Transform for Telemedicine
           and e-Healthcare Systems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this article, a highly adaptable method the empirical wavelet transform (EWT) is utilized to compress electrocardiogram (ECG) data. EWT and run-length encoding (RLE)-based technique is used for data compression of ECG rhythms. EWT is chosen because it is highly adaptable and can decompose a non-stationary signal into different frequency modes efficiently. The modified RLE is used to acquire the high reduction performance. The projected method is tested with MIT-BIH arrhythmia database and experiments are carried out in MATLAB R2016b. Performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated in terms of compression ratio (CR), percent root mean squire difference (PRD), signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), retained energy (RE) and quality score (QS). Result shows a high CR (31%), low PRD (0.0750) and high QS (414). Comparative analysis of the performance of projected technique with several existing techniques is also done, which shows that the proposed technique is superior in terms of PRD and CR. WT is also used to detect the R-peaks (location and amplitude) using amplitude thresholding. The program took 4.452793 s to run.

  • Computing Run-out Decisions Using Object Detection and Support Vector
           Machine Algorithm

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the game of cricket, there are various kinds of dismissals that can be caused due to multiple reasons. Few of them include the bowler’s brilliance and the batsman’s mistake. Run-out being one kind of dismissal, that completely changes the fortune and momentum of teams. Most of the time, it becomes difficult for the on-field umpire to give a judgement on run-out with naked eyes. So, the decisions are transferred to the third umpire, who gives the final decision based on a time-consuming technique. Therefore, we are proposing an approach, in which dismissal prediction is made using object detection and support vector machine. As the dismissal prediction is made based on images from different angles from various cameras, we were successful in achieving an accuracy rate of 87%. Additionally, since it works on an automated process, it is much more time-efficient than the traditional system. Thus by using this approach, errors are minimized and machine learning capabilities are provided to decision making in the game of cricket.

  • Harnessing Augmented Reality for Increasing the Awareness of Food Waste
           Amongst Dutch Consumers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Food waste is a significant challenge, and our societal behaviours play a role in the amount of food items discarded. Thus, an effective method to inform consumers about high wastage patterns may help reduce the amount thrown away. This research investigates how Augmented Reality can be harnessed to enlighten consumers and work towards addressing high food waste patterns. Yet research on this topic is still very much in its infancy. To pursue this solution, food behaviour data are employed to provide an insight into how much is wasted from 9 catering industry locations in the Netherlands. An Augmented Reality application is developed, where models of food are projected onto real-world environments to provide scale on waste over a 7-day period. A quantitative evaluation of higher-education attendees demonstrated the approach has potential to incentivise reduction in waste.

      Abstract: Abstract Our travel planner mobile application was designed to fit the traveling post to COVID-19 outbreak following the lean product process principle. We intend to develop a travel application that brings back the joy of traveling. The objective of this study is to design a travel planner application that satisfies the user’s needs. In the first stage of the lean product process, we first determine our target customer by interviewing eight millennials. Once the persona was clarified, we explored the problem space, identified underserved customer needs, and prioritized those needs. The features with high importance but were underserved are COVID-19 guideline information, place recommendation, route optimization, and price comparison, which we believe could offer excellent opportunities to create customer value. The value proposition and feature set were also identified before creating the first MVP prototype. The detailed navigation flow and interactive MVP prototype were created and then tested with users. As a result, in the last iteration of usability testing, the value rating was increased from 6 to 9, and the ease of use rating was increased from 6 to 8 compared to the first rounds.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Theme entertainment businesses rely very much on providing their visitors with the most memorable experiences. To do so, top operators have put a considerable amount of effort and investment in their facilities and activities in their parks. However, after a customer interview, several pain points are still found such as long toilet queues, finding available parking lots, being unable to find the parked car, and no real-time thrill ride information/status. Similar with other domains in the tourism market, most of these problems are easy to solve with the help of having a smartphone application that delivers such information right to the customer’s hands. This study outlines the development process of a theme park application based on a design thinking approach. Our MVP prototypes have obtained good feedback from potential users in both qualitative and quantitative usability tests.

  • Defining Smart Glasses: A Rapid Review of State-of-the-Art Perspectives
           and Future Challenges From a Social Sciences’ Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over recent decades smart glasses have gained increased attention in both the research arena and recently also in the consumer market, even though there is not yet a clear definition of what exactly smart glasses entail and underexposed perspectives are not represented. This study used a rapid review to assess the current understanding of smart glasses with the aim of defining them. Searches were performed across six databases, followed-up by a content-based evaluation of title and abstract. A total set of 14 relevant publications was identified to help arrive at a definition and characteristics of smart glasses. As a result, it was observed in both the research literature and in the public domain that many different names are used for smart glasses, and that in some cases there is unclarity about what constitute smart glasses. Therefore, an adapted definition of smart glasses is developed based on the existing original rationale of ubiquitous computing and taking the current state-of-the-art knowledge into account. This article provides an overview of and suggestion for defining smart glasses from a social sciences’ perspective to better inform researchers, developers, designers and companies who are involved in the design, development, research of smart glasses.

  • Deep Learning and Particle Swarm Optimisation-Based Techniques for
           Visually Impaired Humans' Text Recognition and Identification

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Blind people can benefit greatly from a system capable of localising and reading comprehension text embedded in natural scenes and providing useful information that boosts their self-esteem and autonomy in everyday situations. Regardless of the fact that existing optical character recognition programmes seem to be quick and effective, the majority of them are not able to correctly recognise text embedded in usual panorama images. The methodology described in this paper is to localise textual image regions and pre-process them using the naïve Bayesian algorithm. A weighted reading technique is used to generate the correct text data from the complicated image regions. Usually, images hold some disturbance as a result of the fact that filtration is proposed during the early pre-processing step. To restore the image's quality, the input image is processed employing gradient and contrast image methods. Following that, the contrast of the source images would be enhanced using an adaptive image map. The stroke width transform, Gabor’s transform, and weighted naïve Bayesian classifier methodologies have been used in complicated degraded images to segment, feature extraction, and detect textual and non-textual elements. Finally, to identify categorised textual data, the confluence of deep neural networks and particle swarm optimisation is being used. The text in the image is transformed into an acoustic output after identification. The dataset IIIT5K is used for the development portion, and the performance of the suggested come up is evaluated using parameters such as accuracy, recall, precision, and F1-score.

  • Influence of Tourists Satisfaction on Future Behavioral Intentions with
           Special Reference to Desert Triangle of Rajasthan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Tourism is the main source of economic growth and a creator of employment of various kinds. The Rajasthan state got the fifth rank in the top 10 tourist destinations among domestic tourism ranks. The main inflection of this paper is to investigate the influence of tourist satisfaction of international tourists on future behavioral intentions with special reference to the desert triangle of Rajasthan. The holiday satisfaction model was used to construct the survey method applied in this study. According to the findings, tourist holiday satisfaction is particularly high for attraction qualities in numerous tourist sites in Rajasthan's desert triangle. The HOLSAT model was used to calculate the average mean of experience and expectation in this study, and the results show that the attributes described as attractions, accessibility and activities components are those that foreign visitors value the most. International tourists, on the other hand, give the lowest scores to qualities classed under amenities and accommodation components, indicating that international tourism has a long way to go.Thus, the tourism sector will need to guide human resources to curate and deliver these experiences.

  • Perceived Stress among School Students in Distance Learning During the
           COVID-19 Pandemic in the Gaza Strip, Palestine

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The rapid outbreak of COVID-19 is a global health problem that has a significant effect on the educational systems. Therefore, students shifted to distance learning through the digital platform. Since COVID-19 has consequences on mental health, the present study examined the perceived stress level in school students in distance learning during the COVID-19 period. A cross-sectional study of a sample consisting of 385 school students evaluated the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) and their concerns and emotions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The results showed that the mean value of the total PSS scores was 19.50 ± 9.28. About 48.6% of students had moderate stress, 28.8% had low stress, and 22.6% had high stress. Significant associations were found between the level of stress and demographic variables: age, gender, educational level, and place of residence. Female students were significantly higher than the male students in the mean score of perceived stress level (20.14 versus 18.13; p-value = 0.018). Females were more likely (53.4%) to have moderate stress than males (38.2%) (p = 0.019). The students aged 15–18 years were significantly higher than those aged 11–14 years in the mean score of perceived stress level (22.64 versus 17.24, respectively; p-value < 0.001). The students aged 15–18 years were also more likely (n = 536, 96.4%) to had high levels of stress than the younger students (p < 0.001). The results showed that secondary school students were significantly higher than primary school students in the mean score of perceived stress level (23.75 versus 16.76, respectively; p < 0.001). Secondary students were also more likely (43.0%) to have high stress than primary students (9.4%) (p < 0.001). Students who live in the Rafah governorate had a significantly lowest mean score of perceived stress level when compared to other counterparts (p-value = 0.005). Gender (β = − 0.282, P < 0.001), age (β = − 0.379, P = 0.004), place of residence (β = − 0.096, P = 0.034), and educational level (β = 0.845, P < 0.001) were predictors of perceived stress. The results revealed moderate to high levels of stress in school students in the Gaza Strip during schools closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The prevalence of psychological distress attributed to suddenly shifted from traditional learning to distance learning. The incorporation of stress management programs and online counselling will minimize stress and enhance the mental health of school students during distance learning.

      Abstract: Abstract This article addresses a renowned issue of allocating periodic tasks to a network of heterogeneous processors in distributed computing systems (DCS) subject to timing constraints, tasks precedence, and arbitrary communication among them, in order to lessen the overall busy time whereas guaranteeing the tasks deadlines. A new hybrid optimization (NHO) technique is introduced, a fusion of k-mean clustering (KMC) and Branch-and-Bound (B&B) method for reducing overall normalized busy time (NSBT) of the system. This technique is stationed on B&B method in which each branch grants scheduling solution. K-mean clustering (KMC) technique has been utilized to reduce the complexity of B&B technique by pruning the branches those do not lead feasible solution. A specialized case of non-periodic tasks allocation issue is also studied in this work. The problem is intractable in nature. Finally, a demonstrative example and comparison with some computational experiences are presented. Experimental results reveal that proposed technique achieves better proficiency than other existing techniques in literature. This model is advisable for arbitrary number of processors and tasks.

  • Impact of SARS-CoV-2 in Online Education, Predicting and Contrasting
           Mental Stress of Young Students: A Machine Learning Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The nation has already had to contend with such a major public health issue when this COVID-19 disease was propagated in March 2020. The corona's propagation does have an effect on all areas of people's lives. The hostile effect on education systems throughout all locations is indeed a diverse expansion impact. A complete shutdown keeps adding fresh problems for students to learn and also for educators to effectively manage the class, likely to result in the conversion of such an offline education system into a virtual class. This study investigated and described various online learning platforms, as well as teaching resource distribution technology and modern technologies used to ensure that students can study. Overall, this relates to channels that can be used to create a confidential environment in order to prevent copying in online tests. This also outlines so many difficulties in managing online teaching methods, like learners' perceptions of e-learning being more traumatic and having a negative impact on general wellbeing and social relationships. So, a technique has been proposed to provide learners with a superior online classroom teaching experience, allowing the online classroom to be as good as, if not better than, a single online classroom. This study focused on daily teaching methods that employ online learning supported by a machine teaching approach to provide an individual with a relevant stress-free solution.

  • Developing Professional Capacity of Preschool Teachers in Mountainous
           Areas to Meet the Requirements of Augmented Education Innovation 4.0

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The professional capacity of preschool teachers is a decisive factor for the quality of child care and early education for children. However, many preschool teachers teaching in disadvantaged areas have not yet responded to the increasing demands of society and educational innovation. Therefore, developing educators’ competencies in disadvantaged areas is an important task in education renovation. This article investigates the status of the professional competencies of preschool teachers in disadvantaged and mountainous areas to find out the advantages and disadvantages in implementing educational innovation. The main method is the quantitative research method entailing observation, questionnaire investigation and in-depth interviews with 250 early childhood educators and 30 administrators. Research results have revealed that the professional capacity of teachers in mountainous areas has many limitations, especially the ability to apply information technology and develop their own professional skills. Besides, research also pointed out a number of factors affecting the professional capacity development of preschool teachers. This research result is the foundation for improving professional competencies for preschool teachers in educational innovation.

  • Application of EEG Time-Varying Networks in the Evaluation of Dynamic
           Functional Brain Networks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The variability that occurs in spontaneous network communication has brought about increased attention in the area of study that is centered on analytical approaches and models aimed at addressing the shorter timescales conceivable with dynamic functional networks. As the shifts in functional connectivity have been immense in the quantification of task performance in the cognitive domain so has the usefulness in the clinical setting been predicted. More so, the analysis of dynamic functional connections can be of considerable clinical relevance as had been observed in the studies of pathologies such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease mild cognitive impairment. The evaluation of dynamic functional connectivity is however far from being perfect. Though functional magnetic resonance, imaging which has been vastly employed in evaluating neural communication in the human brain, does not appear to be efficient in measuring neuronal dynamics, and this could be down to the variability in sampling, physiological, noise, and head motion that usually accompany fMRI. This is where EEG, despite its limited spatial resolution, has found significance owing to the delivery of temporal resolution which is higher in measuring the time-varying relationships feasible in the rhythmic patterns of neural activity. In this paper, we shall aim at reviewing the strides that have been made in the efforts to develop an effective technique for quantifying the transitions in functional connectivity that take place over specific timescales.

  • Augmenting Team Games With a Ball to Promote Cooperative Play

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Team games with a ball provide a great workout and are social activities, making them a great way to spend free time. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to play when the participants' level is not more or less equal. We use digital augmentation technology to promote collaboration during the game and soften the focus that is usually put exclusively on the physical skill levels. Using computer game elements (attack points, defense points, life points) enables us to create a unique mixed reality playing experience that is approachable and enjoyable to various people who have different playing skills. Therefore, it works for promoting physical activity among such players. When designing a fast-paced game with a real ball, taking place in the physical world and the virtual world, special considerations on tracking the game progress, information display, and player experience have to be taken. We describe the development of the augmented dodgeball game, which includes the systems required to play the game and player status display systems. We also present a user study, which consists of questionnaires, interviews, and player-observations. We found that players had a positive experience playing the developed game; they liked the game concept and saw it as a fun activity to do with friends. The players were also communicating and collaborating more during the augmented game. This research contributes to providing design insights specific to designing for augmented reality team games with the ball.
