    Yasir Shahzad1,*, Huma Javed1, Haleem Farman2, Jamil Ahmad2, Bilal Jan3, Abdelmohsen A. Nassani4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.67, No.2, pp. 2463-2480, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014904

    Abstract Smart healthcare integrates an advanced wave of information technology using smart devices to collect health-related medical science data. Such data usually exist in unstructured, noisy, incomplete, and heterogeneous forms. Annotating these limitations remains an open challenge in deep learning to classify health conditions. In this paper, a long short-term memory (LSTM) based health condition prediction framework is proposed to rectify imbalanced and noisy data and transform it into a useful form to predict accurate health conditions. The imbalanced and scarce data is normalized through coding to gain consistency for accurate results using synthetic minority oversampling technique. The proposed model is… More >

    Saleh Albahli1, Tahira Nazir2,*, Aun Irtaza2, Ali Javed3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.67, No.2, pp. 1333-1351, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014691

    Abstract Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that results in a retinal complication called diabetic retinopathy (DR) which is one of the four main reasons for sightlessness all over the globe. DR usually has no clear symptoms before the onset, thus making disease identification a challenging task. The healthcare industry may face unfavorable consequences if the gap in identifying DR is not filled with effective automation. Thus, our objective is to develop an automatic and cost-effective method for classifying DR samples. In this work, we present a custom Faster-RCNN technique for the recognition and classification of DR lesions from retinal images. After… More >

    Abstract As colon cancer is among the top causes of death, there is a growing interest in developing improved techniques for the early detection of colon polyps. Given the close relation between colon polyps and colon cancer, their detection helps avoid cancer cases. The increment in the availability of colorectal screening tests and the number of colonoscopies have increased the burden on the medical personnel. In this article, the application of deep learning techniques for the detection and segmentation of colon polyps in colonoscopies is presented. Four techniques were implemented and evaluated: Mask-RCNN, PANet, Cascade R-CNN and Hybrid Task Cascade (HTC).… More >

    ASRNet: Adversarial Segmentation and Registration Networks for Multispectral Fundus Images

    Yanyun Jiang1, Yuanjie Zheng1,2,*, Xiaodan Sui1, Wanzhen Jiao3, Yunlong He4, Weikuan Jia1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.36, No.3, pp. 537-549, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.014578

    Abstract Multispectral imaging (MSI) technique is often used to capture images of the fundus by illuminating it with different wavelengths of light. However, these images are taken at different points in time such that eyeball movements can cause misalignment between consecutive images. The multispectral image sequence reveals important information in the form of retinal and choroidal blood vessel maps, which can help ophthalmologists to analyze the morphology of these blood vessels in detail. This in turn can lead to a high diagnostic accuracy of several diseases. In this paper, we propose a novel semi-supervised end-to-end deep learning framework called “Adversarial Segmentation… More >

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.36, No.3, pp. 509-520, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.014189

    Abstract Forecasting stock prices using deep learning models suffers from problems such as low accuracy, slow convergence, and complex network structures. This study developed an echo state network (ESN) model to mitigate such problems. We compared our ESN with a long short-term memory (LSTM) network by forecasting the stock data of Kweichow Moutai, a leading enterprise in China’s liquor industry. By analyzing data for 120, 240, and 300 days, we generated forecast data for the next 40, 80, and 100 days, respectively, using both ESN and LSTM. In terms of accuracy, ESN had the unique advantage of capturing nonlinear data. Mean… More >
