    Abstract Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) empower the reflection of the environment with an extraordinary resolve. These systems are combination of several minuscule squat-cost, and stumpy-power on-chip transceiver sensing motes. Characteristically, a sensing device comprises of four key gears: an identifying element for data attainment, a microcontroller for native data dispensation, a message component to permit the broadcast/response of data to/from additional associated hardware, and lastly, a trivial energy source. Near field frequency series and inadequate bandwidth of transceiver device drags to multi-stage data transactions at minimum achievable requirements. State of art, and prevailing operating systems, such as TinyOS (Levis, et.al. 2005),… More >

    Lu Wu, Quan Liu, Ping Lou
    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 249-257, 2019, DOI:10.31209/2018.100000010
    Abstract The scheme of spatial pyramid matching (SPM) causes feature ambiguity near dividing lines because it divides an image into different scales in a fixed manner. A new method called soft SPM (sSPM) is proposed in this paper to reduce feature ambiguity. First, an auxiliary area rotating around a dividing line in four orientations is used to correlate the feature relativity. Second, sSPM is performed to combine these four orientations to describe the image. Finally, an optimized multiple kernel learning (MKL) algorithm with three basic kernels for the support vector machine is applied. Specifically, for each level, a suitable kernel is… More >

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 319-327, 2019, DOI:10.31209/2019.100000093
    Abstract In this study, a systematic data-driven adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) modelling methodology is proposed. The new methodology employs an unsupervised competitive learning scheme to build an initial ANFIS structure from input-output data, and a high-performance PSO-LSE method is developed to improve the structure and to identify the consequent parameters of ANFIS model. This proposed modelling approach is evaluated using several nonlinear systems and is shown to outperform other modelling approaches. The experimental results demonstrate that our proposed approach is able to find the most suitable architecture with better results compared with other methods from the literature. More >

    Abstract Accurate prediction of fine dust (PM10) concentration is currently recognized as an important problem in East Asia. In this paper, we try to predict the concentration of PM10 using Deep Neural Network (DNN). Meteorological factors, yellow dust (sand), fog, and PM10 are used as input data. We test two cases.

The second case predicts the concentration of PM10 on the next day using the previous day’s data. Based on this, we compare the various performance results from the DNN model. In the… More >

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.25, No.2, pp. 351-358, 2019, DOI:10.31209/2019.100000096
    Abstract A modified Viterbi scoring procedure is presented in this paper based on Dijkstra’s shortest-path algorithm. In HMM-based speech recognition systems, the Viterbi scoring plays a significant role in finding the best matching model, but its computational complexity is linearly proportional to the number of reference models and their states. Therefore, the complexity is serious in implementing a high-speed speech recognition system. In the proposed method, the Viterbi scoring is translated into the searching of a minimum path, and the shortest-path algorithm is exploited to decrease the computational complexity while preventing the recognition accuracy from deteriorating.
