Two drive modes for the vehicle[ ]


Looking at the current fuel price hike, private transport is progressively getting to be unviable for the normal man. Fuel consumption of bikes increases when you are driving on a slope and in substantial rush hour traffic where you have to switch the gear over and over again, also driving the bike in the lower gear. In the event that you change over to battery mode in these street conditions, this issue can be survived.

Software Engineering Process Model: A cost and quality enhancive technique[ ]


The Software industry has flourished and changed our lives in a way like never before. The software is considered as paramount for our life. The exceeding entanglement in this context is the Quality and Cost-effectiveness of the software products. Previously many approaches have been used in order to enhance the quality of the software products (i.e. validation) affecting the overall cost of the software product. Our Research work can be divided in two steps. First step is to review all top-notch Software Engineering Process Models in practice i.e. water fall model, spiral model etc. and Second and most cardinal part of the research work is to propose a new software engineering process model which will help in making software products more efficient both in terms of both cost and quality. Our research will ensure that the proposed model follows all the basics practices of Software Engineering process.

Breast Cancer Prediction System Using KE Sieve Algorithm[ ]


Breast cancer is a disease which occurs when the cells in the breast grow out of control due to the changes in the genes called mutations. These abnormal cells get accumulated and eventually form a tumor or can be felt as a lump. The main factors causing breast cancer are advancing age and family history. So, earlier detection of breast cancer is necessary to decrease the number of deaths associated with this disease. In this paper, a new non-iterative classifier named KE Sieve is used to detect the presence of cancer by using original Wisconsin Breast Cancer Dataset.

USING THE MPM AND PERT METHODS TO DETERMINE THE PROBABILITY OF DEADLINE RESPECT OF A PROJECT IN BUILDING[ ]


In this paper, we looked at the issue of timeliness in building and public works tenders. We used the MPM and PERT methods to determine the minimum and probable duration of a project and finally calculate the probabilities of compliance with the deadlines provided by the contractor and the client. This work has shown that it is possible to anticipate the possible difficulties of observance of the time limit of a project in Buildings and Public Works, by calculating the associated probabilities. Such probabilities may allow the supervisor to request a review of the contract by negotiating the initial deadlines. This work allowed us to anticipate compared to the deadlines initially planned. In fact, could be found after calculation that the deadline set in the contract had a probable of very low respect, only 9%. The company found the impossibility of three months from the end of deadline initially. The results of this study suggest that predictions based on probability calculations (taking into account random durations) can predict the difficulties of meeting the deadlines set in a bid document or a simple contract.

Prediction of Diabetes by KE Sieve Algorithm[ ]


Diabetes mellitus commonly referred as diabetes, is a complex condition which impairs the body’s ability to produce or respond to insulin, leading to high blood sugar levels. The diagnosis of diabetes is of great importance due to its severe long-term complications like cardiovascular disease, stroke, chronic kidney disease and damage to the eyes. Over the past few years, plenty of research studies has been done on diabetes identification, most of them are based on the Pima Indian diabetes data set. In this paper, we use a new non-iterative algorithm called KE Sieve to predict the presence of diabetes.

Parallelizing Incremental Grid Density Clustering Algorithm for Real-time Network Anomaly Detection[ ]


Cyberattacks are a growing threat to the internet. These cyberattacks are targeted to exploit the vulnerabilities in a network. Often, the intention of such cyberattacks is malicious. The growing number of devices that are connected to the Internet also increases the vulnerability of such devices to cyberattacks. Cyberattacks will usually exhibit anomalous characteristics in a network traffic flow. These anomalies could be identified in real-time and investigated further to minimize the impact of cyberattacks. Many researchers today use a wide array of tools to detect cyberattacks in real-time which comes with a high complexity cost in terms of the system architecture and maintenance. In this research, a simple method of parallelizing the incremental grid density clustering algorithm used to detect the anomalies is implemented and studied. The simplified approach used in this research is practical to be used in a real-life environment.

Removal of Barium and Strontium from aqueous solutions: Optimization and modeling[ ]


Scale formation is recognized as one of the major flow assurance problems affecting production in the oil and gas sector, so removing scale pollutants as Ba2+ and Sr2+ is of great importance in environmental remediation. An environmentally benign SiO2-nanoparticles modified EDTA was prepared for treating contaminated water solutions with Ba2+ and Sr2+. Adsorption studies were carried out in a binary component system. The Response Surface methodology (RSM) was selected to study and improve the adsorption rate on batch study, and to optimize the most important parameters affecting the adsorption including pH and adsorbent dose. Furthermore, the theoretical constants of kinetic and isotherm of the adsorption were determined in order to more completely understand the Ba2+ and Sr2+ adsorption mechanism onto adsorbent. Results showed that the adsorption capacities were pH dependent.

How to use AI/ML Systems to Revolutionize Testing and Test automation?[ ]


Much of our day to day technology is powered by Artificial Intelligence - It is the study of agents those who perceive the world around them, form plans, and make decisions to achieve their goals. Machine Learning is a sub field under Artificial Intelligence. Its goal is to enable computers to learn on their own, without explicitly programming for each and everything. In this paper, we will specifically discuss “What does it mean to a testing community, how would it change the way we are testing?”. Our approach on AI/ML based Quality Assurance in TechM is design based compliance with following steps – Discover > Learn > Sense > Respond cycle. The knowledge base constantly helps in storing and building pattern, which in turn helps self-learning and responding to actions.

The proportion of vitamin D deficiency in reproductive age group women in Baghdad/Iraq, and its association with menstrual cycle characteristics and anthropometric measurements[ ]


Background: Vitamin D deficiency is the most common medical condition worldwide. There is a wide variation by and within regions in the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency especially in developing countries [varying between 30–90%]. The role of vitamin D in reproduction is a new, active area of investigation. Vitamin D receptor is expressed in the ovary, placenta, and the uterus. Lower vitamin D has been related to uterine fibroids. Anti-Mullerian Hormone regulates follicular recruitment, which provides a mechanism for vitamin D to influence ovarian function and menstrual cycle regularity. Many conditions may influence the vitamin D status and excess body weight may be one of them. Body fat may act as a reservoir for storage of the fat soluble vitamin D, reducing its bioavailability.
