Virtual servers (VS) are built on a group of physical machine (PM) servers scattered across the globe and interconnected through telecommunication systems. It can be said that today data center is the very important role in the era of industrial revolution 4.0. Some countries that want to promote smart agricultural production rely on information technology infrastructure. The integral part of the IoT component is the network infrastructure and cloud computing. In this article, we talk about the ability to exploit virtual resources. The goal of this new technical solution is to make using computer resources more efficient and cost-effective, such as reducing energy costs. Especially, farmers like to use high technology in their farms, but the cost of renting a virtual server from data center is very high. In this paper, we use the Open Stack tool, which incorporates a proposed algorithm to ensure that these resources are provided accurately and in a timely manner, detecting any duplication or conflict, especially resources allocation to remote users. We found a way to create efficiently distributed resources, emphasize solutions to prevent deadlock, and propose methods to avoid resource shortages.

In recent times, Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs) has become highly important for performing all sorts of underwater operations. It is somewhat cumbersome to implement terrestrial sensor networks routing protocols in UWSN due to high propagation delay, packet delay, and energy efficiency. So, lots of efforts are going on by researchers dedicated towards proposing efficient routing protocols for UWSN. As UWSN have specific characteristics in terms of rapid dynamic topology change, limited bandwidth, high energy consumption, high latency, packet delay issues, and security problems, designing a routing protocol to overcome all the aforesaid mentioned issues is quite a daunting task. In this research paper, we primarily focus on surveying various routing protocols available till date for data routing in UWSNs. In addition, comparison of protocols is also mentioned on the basis of various characteristics like routing technique, packet delivery ratio, energy efficiency, packet delay and localization to give a clear picture of the benefits and shortcomings of each and every enlisted protocol for UWSN.

There are several non-associative finite dimensional division algebras over different number fields. Their representations in the corresponding matrix algebras preserve additive structure. However, the embedding does not preserve multiplication as matrix multiplication is associative. As such, it gives a generalized matrix representation. Indeed, a non-associative structure provides different platforms for more effective and useful space-time coding satisfying rank criteria, and coding gain criteria for multiple antenna wireless communication. Associative division algebras have dimension restrictions, whereas non-associative division algebras over suitable fields exist in infinitely many dimensions. We illustrate the above program by using octonion algebras.

Microscopic images are often corrupted by noise, where Poisson noise is one of the major types that can damage them. The local polynomial approximation (LPA) filter supported by the intersection confidence interval (ICI) rule was considered as an efficient filter for image de-noising. However, this filter depends on several parameters that affect its performance. In order to determine the optimal parameters, the present study employed the classic LPA-ICI (C-LPA-ICI) filter supported by optimization algorithms, namely the genetic algorithm (GA) and the particle swarm optimization (PSO) in the context of light microscopy imaging systems. Nevertheless, inclusion of the optimization algorithms increased the computational time. A novel automatic technique entitled “Standard Optimized LPA-ICI” (SO-LPA-ICI) is proposed. In this context, the average of the optimized ICI parameters was calculated, which obtained from both LPA-ICI-based GA (G-LPA-ICI) and LPA-ICI-based PSO (P-LPA-ICI). Thus, the proposed SO-LPA-ICI is included the optimal ICI parameters without optimization iterations. This procedure is proposed to speed up the optimized filter. A pool of 50 rats’ renal microscopic images is involved to test the proposed approach. A comparative study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of the four methods, namely C-LPA-ICI, G-LPA-ICI, P-LPA-ICI, and the SO-LPA-ICI for de-noising in the presence of Poisson noise. The experimental results established the outstanding performance of the SO-LPA-ICI in terms of the PSNR, MAE, and MSSIM with 28.27, 7.65, and 0.93 values, respectively. In addition, the proposed approach achieved fast de-noising compared to the G-LPA-ICI and the P-LPA-ICI.

It is essential to identify factors influencing the creative use of IT that can enhance organizational performance. Based on self-determination theory, our approach investigates the intermediate role of employees’ curiosity in the relationships between inherent psychological needs and employees’ creative use of IT. By using the quantitative method, this study develops a model regarding the creative use of IT. To test the model, surveys are distributed to employees working for organizations located in one of the biggest city in Vietnam. The results indicate that curiosity has partial mediation in the relation between inherent psychological needs and creative use of IT. The findings of this paper are expected to shed a new light into the study of users’ behavior, especially in their creative use of IT. This paper also provides valuable insight to practitioners on how to improve their employees’ creative use of IT.

Electromyogram (EMG) signal is a demonstration of muscular contraction. This being a non-stationary signal is distorted by Baseline Wander. Proper correction of Baseline Wander is a major issue while acquiring EMG signals as it may deteriorate the quality of the signal and make its diagnostic analysis difficult. This paper aims at proposing an effective method for Baseline Wander correction in the baseline-drifted EMG signals. Canonical correlation analysis (CCA) algorithm is first performed on the baseline-corrupted EMG signals to decompose them into various canonical components or variates. After that, morphological filtering deploying octagon-shaped structuring element is used to filter each canonical component. Finally, the results of the proposed technique are compared with the CCA-Gaussian- and CCA-thresholding-based techniques. Simulation results report that the Baseline Wander correction approach used in this work satisfyingly eliminates the Baseline Wander from EMG signals while distorting the original EMG signal to a minimum.

The contrast enhancement of mammograms at preprocessing stage optimizes the overall performance of a computer-aided detection (CAD) system for breast cancer. In the proposed approach, contrast enhancement is performed using a sigmoidal transformation mechanism followed by extracting a set of 14 Haralick features. For classification purposes, a support vector machine (SVM) classifier is used which sorts the input mammogram into either normal or abnormal subclasses. The performance of the classifier is estimated by calculating parameters like accuracy, specificity, and sensitivity. The performance of the proposed approach has been reported to be better in comparison to other existing approaches.

In this paper, we study the dynamic service composition becomes a decision problem on which component services should be selected under the E2E-to- End Quality of Service constraints. This problem is modeled is a nonlinear optimization problem under several constraints. We have two approaches to solve this problem. The first approach is local selection which is an efficient strategy with polynomial time complexity but can not handle global constraints. The second approach is the traditional global selection approach based on integer linear programming can handle global constraints, but its poor performance renders it inappropriate for practical applications with dynamic requirements. To overcome this disadvantage, in this study we proposed a novel Min-Max Ant System algorithm with the new utilities heuristic information to search the global approximate optimal. Our goal focus on its efficiency in terms of execution time and the quality in terms of the obtained best solution fitness value. The experiment results show that our algorithm is efficiency and feasibility more than the recently proposed related algorithms.

Computer based diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease can be performed by dint of the analysis of the functional and structural changes in the brain. Multispectral image fusion deliberates upon fusion of the complementary information while discarding the surplus information to achieve a solitary image which encloses both spatial and spectral details. This paper presents a Non-Sub-sampled Contourlet Transform (NSCT) based multispectral image fusion model for computer-aided diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. The proposed fusion methodology involves color transformation of the input multispectral image. The multispectral image in YIQ color space is decomposed using NSCT followed by dimensionality reduction using modified Principal Component Analysis algorithm on the low frequency coefficients. Further, the high frequency coefficients are enhanced using non-linear enhancement function. Two different fusion rules are then applied to the low-pass and high-pass sub-bands: Phase congruency is applied to low frequency coefficients and a combination of directive contrast and normalized Shannon entropy is applied to high frequency coefficients. The superiority of the fusion response is depicted by the comparisons made with the other state-of-the-art fusion approaches (in terms of various fusion metrics).

This paper focuses to address the suppression of residual speckle content, thereby leading to performance improvement of Anisotropic Diffusion (AD) filtering. The present work proposes an optimized AD filtering approach for despeckling of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images using Ant Colony Optimization (ACO). The residual speckle suppression has been attained via optimal parameter selection of parameters of AD using ACO algorithm. Further, computation of conductance function via eight-directional gradients (derivatives) leads to effective edge preservation during despeckling. During simulations, the fidelity of restored SAR images is validated using PSNR and SSIM as image quality metrics.

<p>Image segmentation is a challenging process in numerous applications. Region growing is one of the segmentation techniques as a basis for the Seeded Region Growing method. A novel real time integrated method was developed in the current work to locate the segmented region of interest of an image based on the Region Growing segmentation method along with the thresholding supported image segmentation. Through the proposed work, a homogeneity based on pixel intensity was suggested as well as the threshold value can be decided via a variety of schemes such as manual selection, Iterative method, Otsu’s method, local thresholding to obtain the best possible threshold. The experimental results were performed on different images obtained from an Alpert dataset. A comparative study was arried out with the human segmented image, threshold based region growing, and the proposed integrated method. The results established that the proposed integrated method outperformed the region growing method in terms of the recall and F-score. Although, it had comparable recall values with that gained by the human segmented images. It was noted that as the image under test had a dark background with the brighter object, thus the proposed method provided the superior recall value compared to the other methods.</p>

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images are known to be corrupted by granular noise known as speckle. This noise is inherently present in these images owing to acquisition constraints and is a major cause of visual quality degradation. The anisotropic diffusion approaches for despeckling are constrained in terms exercising control over the non-homogeneous regions. This paper proposes to improve the non-linear Anisotropic Diffusion (AD) filter for despeckling using Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm. The main essence of this work is to suppress speckle and preserve the structural content. The issue of residual speckle content has been minimized by optimal selection of AD parameter(s) using ACO algorithm. Experimental results advocate the performance improvement achieved and has been validated using objective measures of image quality evaluation.

In this paper, we proposed a novel Min-Max Ant System algorithm for dynamic resource allocation with many of service classes while maximizing the provider’s utility in service-oriented networks. The model considers a pricing scheme for the offered services and the quality of service (QoS) requirements of each service class, which operates under a probabilistic delay bound constraint. The goal is to investigate how the utility function and the resource allocation respond to changes of various parameters given the QoS requirements of each service class. Our algorithm performance is evaluated through numerical studies and our solution is approximated the optimal solution. The computational results showed that this approach is currently among the best performing algorithms and much better than previous studies for this problem.

Factors affecting the QoS in NGN are speech encoders, delay, jitter, packet loss and echo. The negotiation and dynamic adaptation of QoS is currently considered to be one of the key features of the NGN concept. Optimal QoS for multimedia services in the NGNs for multi-flow resource constrained utility maximization is complex problem. In this paper, we propose a novel Min-Max Ant System (MMAS) algorithm with a pheromone updating scheme to solve it. We compared effective of MMAS to SMMAS (Smoothed MMAS), MLAS (Multi-level Ant System) and 3-LAS (Three-level Ant System). The computational results showed that our approach is currently among the best performing algorithms for this problem.

In this paper, we study the dynamic service composition becomes a decision problem on which component services should be selected under the E2E QoS constraints. This problem is modeled is a nonlinear optimization problem under several constraints. We have two approaches: local selection is an efficient strategy with polynomial time complexity but can not handle global constraints and the traditional global selection approach based on integer linear programming can handle global constraints, but its poor performance renders it inappropriate for practical applications with dynamic requirements. To overcome this disadvantage,, we proposed a novel Min-Max Ant System algorithm with the utilities heuristic information to search the global approximate optimal. The experiment results show that our algorithm is efficiency and feasibility more than the recently proposed related algorithms.

An allocation of resources to a virtual machine specifies the maximum amount of each individual element of each resource type that will be utilized, as well as the aggregate amount of each resource of each type. An allocation is thus represented by two vectors, a maximum elementary allocation vector and an aggregate allocation vector. There are more general types of resource allocation problems than those we consider here. In this paper, we present an approach for improving the deadlock detection algorithm, to schedule the policies of resource supply for resource allocation on heterogeneous. The deadlock detection algorithm has a run time complexity of O (min (m, n)), where m is the number of resources and n is the number of processes. We propose the algorithm for allocating multiple resources to competing services running in virtual machines on a heterogeneous distributed platform. The experiments also compare the performance of the proposed approach with other related work.

Most modern day phishing attacks occur by luring users into visiting a malicious web page that looks and behaves like the original. Phishing is a web-based attack which end users are lured to visit fraudulent websites and give away personal information unconsciously. The key problem for checking phishing pages is timely and efficiently calculation. There is still remaining a large space for phishing detection methods. In this paper, we present an approach which calculates similarity of two web pages based on genetic algorithm and applied it to detecting phishing web pages using DOM-Tree structure. Our experimental evaluation demonstrates that our solution is feasible in practice.

Rapamycin (RAPA) is an immunosuppressive drug that prevents and treats graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT). One possible mechanism for its efficacy is induction of tolerance, through increased number or enhanced survival of regulatory T cells. In our experiments, B10.D2 BM and splenocytes were injected into lethally irradiated BALB/cJ recipients. The mice received i.p. injections of either RAPA or vehicle control on days 1–28. There was a significant survival advantage in RAPA-treated mice. Evaluation of the skin biopsies showed a dense cellular infiltrate in RAPA-treated mice. Further characterization of these cells revealed a higher percentage of regulatory T cells characterized by FoxP3-positive cells in high-dose RAPA-treated mice as compared with controls on day 30. This effect appears to be dose dependent. When peripheral blood analysis for FoxP3-positive cells was performed, there was no significant difference observed in the RAPA-treated mice as compared with control mice. These data show a novel mechanism of rapamycin in GVHD, accumulation of regulatory T cells in the GVHD target tissue: the skin.
