  • An Implementation of Kernel Density Estimation with adaptive bandwidth
           selection for Edge detection

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Edge detection has been one of the most active and challenging research aspects in last three decade in the machine vision application. Although, the recent research showed that there has been lots of work reported on the basics of Kernel density estimation (KDE), but selection of proper bandwidth not yet reported in any kind literature work, because it was most challenging issue on both under and over smoothed images. Realizing the aforementioned after math, the current research delivers a well-defined KDE approach which allowed us adaptive selection of bandwidth by enactment of Shannon entropy for keeping the effect of low edge gradient in feature space. Furthermore, our adaptive bandwidth selection technique is validated by means of three measures like entropy, energy and blur for more analytical analysis; along with the statistical control limit is applied on generated gradient image for appropriate edges. Finally, is compared with state of art techniques in terms of Figure of Merit (FOM) measure, and which confines a higher rate of accuracy in detecting edges.

      Abstract: Sustainable environmental performance linked with profitability has been one of the brimming concerns in the worldwide scenario. Therefore, the current study aimed to examine the impact of green banking practices on the firm's sustainable environmental performance. Further, the impact of sustainable environmental performance on firms' profitability was also measured. A survey-based research design was employed by collecting data from Private sector bank employees of India. The data analysis was performed on the selected private bank employees collected from August 2022 to November 2022 by employing the PLS-SEM method with the help of smartPLS software. The study found a significant positive relationship between bank environmental performance and profitability. Consequently, green banking policy significantly influences the day-to-day operation and funding or investment in green projects. Specifically, the study hypothesizes that green banking practices lead to improved operational efficiency, increased funding and investment in green projects, enhanced sustainable environmental performance, and improved profitability for private sector banks. The results of this study contributed to the existing literature on green banking practices and provided insights for policymakers, bank management, and other stakeholders interested in promoting sustainable banking practices.

      Abstract: This study aims to determine the reasons that lead businesses to environmentally responsible manufacturing, the practices carried out, and the effects of these practices on cleaner production performance and business performance. Within the scope of the research, the survey was applied to the companies operating in the shipbuilding sector in Turkey. Research data were analysed using descriptive analysis, correlation, and regression methods. As a result of the analysis carried out, it was concluded that in environmentally responsible manufacturing practices, internal reasons are more effective than external reasons, environmentally responsible manufacturing activities are positively associated with clean production performance, and cleaner production performance has a positive effect on business performance. The main limitation of the study is the small size of the sample, and it is recommended to contribute to the practitioners in environmentally responsible manufacturing by conducting new research with larger sample sizes in different sectors.

      Abstract: Institutions such as the European Commission have committed themselves to promote corporate social responsibility (CSR) in their 2020 Strategy for Europe, being that an increasing number of companies are developing corporate volunteering (CV) as part of their CSR policy. The purpose of this paper is to study the impacts of CV implementation on three stakeholders: the company, the community, and the employees. Through a survey targeting employees with experience in CV, it was possible to conclude, generally, that the main perceived impact is increasing employee satisfaction level; that CV impacts are partially influenced by gender, the respondents' frequency in CV activities, and preferences; and, finally, that CV impacts are mainly explained in the company by self-serving purposes, in the community by the anticipation of benefits, and for employees by the social exchange, attribution, and identification psychological theories.

      Abstract: This study shows how socio-cultural diversity of countries gives benefits to human well-being from ASEAN region perspectives. The relevance of CES to indicate human well-being is based on a few indicators such as emotions, stress, health, and happiness. Previous studies show that there was a significant relationship between the existence of CES and human well-being. However, those studies only provide the knowledge quantitatively. The authors also found that to discuss CES only from quantitative approach is absurd because CES cannot be separated from spiritual and religious services.

      Abstract: Job satisfaction is one of the vital needs of almost every employee in any well-structured organization. Any shortfall in the anticipated level of employee job satisfaction would affect the employees' contribution to organizational effectiveness. The purpose of the research is twofold. It aims to study the relationship between different levels of employees' job satisfaction in organizations and the impact of employee job satisfaction on the nature of roles performed by employees. The study found that employees' job satisfaction significantly impacted their performance and productivity in the organization. Also, the significant impact of employee satisfaction has been found on the employee commitment to work. Furthermore, the significant outcome on organizational performance can be seen as the result of job satisfaction. The study results would help an organization understand the value of job satisfaction for an employee, which could help increase organizational commitment.

      Abstract: The study identified permaculture practitioners and determined how network relationship patterns can help in the mainstreaming of permaculture in the Philippines. Social network analysis was conducted to determine network structure and discover relationship patterns. Results of the study identified 204 permaculture practitioners with 75 individuals belonging to 53 projects that fall under nine project types. This is the first systematic documentation of practitioners in the Philippines. The network structure had a low density (0.185598) suggesting the high diversity of members in its network composition. Degree centrality index (max=92) revealed the network's prominent practitioners while local clustering coefficient (max=0.999) identified the presence of eight organizations and local government offices implying that membership was not limited to the participation of individuals. In conclusion, the way the permaculture network was constructed gave it a strategic position to mainstream permaculture to a broader audience which includes farmers and non-farmers.

      Abstract: An increase is occurring year on year, especially from 2019, in publications related to education for sustainability development (ESD) in the field of tourism. The objective of this paper is to analyse how the concept of sustainability is present in education in this area. To this aim, this article carries out a bibliographic review of the existing scientific literature on the presence of sustainability in tourism training. As an empirical part of the work, a bibliometric review of the works published in the Scopus database on sustainability in tourism education is proposed. Through evaluation and relational methods, it is intended to know the reality of this trend in tourism education. The analysis carried out shows that publications related to ESD in the field of tourism started focusing on the environment to shift on economic and social issues with the passage of time, and that there is greater attention to EDS on university education.

      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: The study addresses the relationship between firm location and the corporate social performance (CSP) of manufacturing enterprises in India. The study argues that a higher number of multinational corporations (MNCs) at a location leads to higher social performance. An environment and social involvement (ESI) index, based on ISO26000 and National Voluntary Guidelines, has been used to measure the corporate social performance of manufacturing enterprises. The data are obtained through questionnaires from a survey of 121 medium-sized manufacturing enterprises in the national capital region in India and analyzed through one-way ANOVA and linear regression. Results reveal that the presence of MNCs at the location of enterprises is significant to their CSP. The findings of the study aggregate to make original and substantive contributions to the CSP literature on the geography of strategic management. This research is valuable for social responsibility practitioners in developing countries for start-ups and small and medium enterprises who are seeking to enhance their understanding to formulate pragmatic and effective strategies to improve CSP.

      Abstract: Clean energy is currently a top priority on the global agenda, and green bonds have emerged as a key response from financial markets. However, while these bonds aim to reduce carbon emissions, they may create perverse incentives. Brazil has made significant investments in eolic parks in recent years, with players issuing green bonds to finance these activities. One region that has seen high levels of investment is the interior of Bahia state, which has historically had low levels of economic and social development. Unfortunately, the production of wind energy in this region has been marked by several social conflicts. Despite this, these conflicts have largely gone unnoticed, as the appeal of clean energy has overshadowed them. Social issues such as land disputes are critical but often overlooked in green finance mechanisms. In some cases, these financial incentives may incentivize land grabbing from vulnerable populations in the name of clean energy production.

      Abstract: Coastal fishing in the Moroccan Mediterranean plays a key role in the fishing industry's economy. This activity is an important source of jobs and income for many coastal communities in the Al Hoceima region of the north-western Mediterranean. This study aims to investigate the state of socio-economic knowledge of the fishermen of the coastal fleet in the region of Al Hoceima, using a diagnosis based on the analysis of socio-economic indicators. The data were obtained by a structured questionnaire with 90 fishermen, 30 captains, and 15 ship owners. The analysis of the data collected revealed, from a social level, a high rate of illiteracy and a low level of education among the fishermen. The economic weight and value of trawlers are significant. Despite the high commercial value of the species, the net income is not satisfactory, so the wealth produced by these fisheries does not have a real impact on the quality of life of the fishers, which does not guarantee the sustainable development of this activity.

      Abstract: Companies adopt marketing practices to delight their customers, generate revenues and profits, and to create customer relationships. However, companies may focus on their selfish motives of growth and may ignore consumer welfare and social welfare. Marketers are criticized for such practices and for the negative impact created on the society. The practices include high prices of products, deceptive practices, high pressure selling, harmful or unsafe products, planned obsolescence, poor service to disadvantaged customers, and negative impact of celebrities in marketing communications. Adverse impact on society includes false wants and materialism, too few social goods, and cultural pollution. Marketers are accused of harming and reducing competition. In the era of social marketing, companies should respect social concerns of various stakeholders and should maintain a balance between their own objective of growth and long-term social requirements. This will result in mutual trust and in sustaining the society.

      Abstract: The social dimension of sustainability has not gained as much attention in bioeconomy (BE) literature as have the environmental and economic dimensions. Thus, this study's purpose is to analyze how social sustainability of the non-timber forest-based BE enterprise in the Amazonian Forest has been leveraged. A case study was performed in the largest enterprise in Latin America that produces babassu coconut-activated carbon for industrial use. This enterprise is a benefit corporation (B Corp) certified by B lab. The main contributions of the study are: (i) proposing a framework for social sustainability that considers its drivers and elements, for both internal and external stakeholders; (ii) indicating the impact of social sustainability on enterprises' business model; (iii) pointing out the contribution of technological innovations to the circular economy and preservation of traditions and environment; and (iv) studying an under-explored object such as a B Corp in the Amazonian Forest.

      Abstract: With the increasing population pressure and food insecurity problem in India, and the problem of unsustainable social and economic systems, it was inevitable to shift away the focus of agricultural activities from the traditional system to the modern one. Having followed a series of agricultural policies in India, the role of irrigation and institutional credits cannot be denied upon the growth of output in the sector. There are some studies on the total factor productivity growth (TFPG) in Indian agriculture, but a few studies cover the role of irrigation and bank credit upon agriculture output. The present study computes TFPG out of the institutional roles through public irrigation facilities and commercial bank credit besides traditional inputs in Indian agricultural sector for the post globalized era of 1991-2019. Using the growth accounting approach, the study finds that the institutional factors such as public irrigation facilities and bank finances have contributed significantly to the growth of the agricultural output in India as the values of TFPG have increased over time.

      Abstract: Over-the-top (OTT) is the name of media entertainment services delivered over the internet, bypassing traditional mediums. The consumer preference for OTT entertainment platforms is increasing at a fast rate and is showing promising signs for the future, so it is important to understand the extent of existing literature. This study is a thematic literature review undertaken to identify and highlight key themes related to the adoption and usage of OTT entertainment services. It includes a thorough literature review of 94 research articles sampled systematically. This study will highlight the widely researched themes and the lesser-focused areas of study within the realm of over-the-top entertainment adoption and usage. Adoption and usage of OTT entertainment services, the shift in the medium of consumption, and the impact of OTT entertainment services on related technologies are some of the primary themes identified in the study. This study will provide critical insights and valuable knowledge to industry players and guide academicians for future research opportunities.

      Abstract: This study gives a comprehensive picture of various trends of worldwide scientific research on the impact of COVID-19 on social media marketing from 2019 to early 2022. Relevant articles were retrieved from the Scopus database using specific keywords, and a bibliometric analysis was performed in Biblioshiny, an R-based software package. An examination of a total of 603 papers on the themes ‘COVID-19' and ‘social media marketing' indicated reasonably good collaboration among authors and a whooping scientific production worldwide in the last two years. Bina Nusantara University was the highest contributor to the chosen theme used in the study. Indonesia topped the list in single country publications. The UK had the highest multiple country publication. The UK, China, Spain, and India were the most cited countries. The output of the study may help the researchers and marketers understand the trending areas in social media marketing during COVID-19.

  • Twitter-Based Disaster Response Using Machine Learning

      Abstract: Twitter, a microblogging platform, receives real-time information via informal conversations, and it has, accordingly, become the main source of data for research studies based on emergency situational awareness. Millions of tweets are posted on Twitter every day, and during disasters, the frequency of tweets relating to an on-going crisis event grows exponentially. This unprecedented increase in the number of tweets during disasters needs to be monitored, identified, processed, and analyzed so that necessary measures can be taken at the earliest to reduce the loss or damage during emergencies. However, due to large voluminous data being available during crisis hours, it is almost impossible for a human to perform these tasks in real time. In this regard, a semi-automated AI-based disaster response system for Twitter data is proposed. The proposed disaster response system would be capable of extracting essential situational awareness information related to a disaster and would also be capable of sketching tentative area of critically affected population.

      Abstract: It is necessary to equip employees with green abilities as well as to develop their dedication towards green behaviour, in order to improve an organization's environmental performance. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the direct impact of green training on organizational environmental performance (OEP) and the mediating effect of organizational citizenship behaviour on the environment (OCBE). The study is based on responses from 107 employees of the IT sector in India. The findings suggest that green training has a significant positive impact on the organizational environmental performance, and that the impact is strengthened by organizational citizenship behaviour towards the environment. The findings are of particular importance given the growing importance of sustainability in the organizational context.

  • Modelling Urbanization, Economic Growth, and Ecological Footprint Using
           Environment Kuznets' Curve in Selected Asian Countries

      Authors: Kaur; Ramanpreet, Kaur, Tushinder Preet
      Pages: 1 - 19
      Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between urbanization, economic growth, and environmental quality using environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) hypothesis. The hypothesized link is tested using time-series analysis of 10 selected Asian countries over the period 1990–2018. First, the EKC hypothesis is tested through examining the relationship between EF, GDP, and URB. Further, the long-run relationship between EF, URB, and GDP is investigated using a vector error correction model. It was found that there is a cointegrated relationship between the variables in the countries China, Malaysia, and Thailand. Additionally, almost all error correction terms are correct in sign and are significant, which implies that some percentage of disequilibrium in EF in the previous year adjusts back to the long-run equilibrium in the current year. Therefore, an efficient trade-off between environmental protection and economic benefits should be taken, and EF should be reduced through changing consumption patterns, improving the efficiency of use of resources and cleaner technology choices.

      Abstract: Satellite images play an important role for capturing Earth's surface. Using satellite images land cover monitoring could be done through which the modification or changes on land surface could be identified. Comparison can be made on the basis of past satellite image analysis, which helps to identify the changes that are occurring or have already occurred. Although there exist many techniques for land cover monitoring, proper land cover identification and detection of changes on the land cover is still a challenge. In the recent years, machine learning techniques have been utilized in distinct areas of image analysis and resulted in positive outcomes. Hence, in this paper, four supervised machine learning algorithms (i.e., support vector machine [SVM]), neural network [NN], maximum likelihood [MLC], and parallelepiped [PP] algorithms) have been utilized for land cover identification and detecting the amount of changes that have occurred in the individual land cover classes.
