    Estimating Age in Short Utterances Based on Multi-Class Classification Approach

    Ameer A. Badr1,2,*, Alia K. Abdul-Hassan2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.68, No.2, pp. 1713-1729, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.016732

    Abstract Age estimation in short speech utterances finds many applications in daily life like human-robot interaction, custom call routing, targeted marketing, user-profiling, etc. Despite the comprehensive studies carried out to extract descriptive features, the estimation errors (i.e. years) are still high. In this study, an automatic system is proposed to estimate age in short speech utterances without depending on the text as well as the speaker. Firstly, four groups of features are extracted from each utterance frame using hybrid techniques and methods. After that, 10 statistical functionals are measured for each extracted feature dimension. Then, the extracted feature dimensions are normalized… More >

    A PSO-XGBoost Model for Estimating Daily Reference Evapotranspiration in the Solar Greenhouse

    Jingxin Yu1,3, Wengang Zheng1,*, Linlin Xu3, Lili Zhangzhong1, Geng Zhang2, Feifei Shan1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.5, pp. 989-1003, 2020, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2020.010130

    Abstract Accurate estimation of reference evapotranspiration (ET0) is a critical prerequisite for the development of agricultural water management strategies. It is challenging to estimate the ET0 of a solar greenhouse because of its unique environmental variations. Based on the idea of ensemble learning, this paper proposed a novel ET0i estimation model named PSO-XGBoost, which took eXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost) as the main regression model and used Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm to optimize the parameters of XGBoost. Using the meteorological and soil moisture data during the two-crop planting process as the experimental data, and taking ET0i calculated based on the improved… More >

    Click through Rate Effectiveness Prediction on Mobile Ads Using Extreme Gradient Boosting

    AlAli Moneera, AlQahtani Maram, AlJuried Azizah, Taghareed AlOnizan, Dalia Alboqaytah, Nida Aslam*, Irfan Ullah Khan

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 1681-1696, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.013466

    Abstract Online advertisements have a significant influence over the success or failure of your business. Therefore, it is important to somehow measure the impact of your advertisement before uploading it online, and this is can be done by calculating the Click Through Rate (CTR). Unfortunately, this method is not eco-friendly, since you have to gather the clicks from users then compute the CTR. This is where CTR prediction come in handy. Advertisement CTR prediction relies on the users’ log regarding click information data. Accurate prediction of CTR is a challenging and critical process for e-advertising platforms these days. CTR prediction uses… More >

    Short-Term Traffic Flow Prediction Based on LSTM-XGBoost Combination Model

    Xijun Zhang*, Qirui Zhang

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.125, No.1, pp. 95-109, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.011013

    Abstract According to the time series characteristics of the trajectory history data, we predicted and analyzed the traffic flow. This paper proposed a LSTMXGBoost model based urban road short-term traffic flow prediction in order to analyze and solve the problems of periodicity, stationary and abnormality of time series. It can improve the traffic flow prediction effect, achieve efficient traffic guidance and traffic control. The model combined the characteristics of LSTM (Long Short-Term Memory) network and XGBoost (Extreme Gradient Boosting) algorithms. First, we used the LSTM model that increases dropout layer to train the data set after preprocessing. Second, we replaced the… More >

    A Novel Method of Heart Failure Prediction Based on DPCNNXGBOOST Model

    Yuwen Chen1, 2, 3, *, Xiaolin Qin1, 3, Lige Zhang1, 3, Bin Yi4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.65, No.1, pp. 495-510, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.011278

    Abstract The occurrence of perioperative heart failure will affect the quality of medical services and threaten the safety of patients. Existing methods depend on the judgment of doctors, the results are affected by many factors such as doctors’ knowledge and experience. The accuracy is difficult to guarantee and has a serious lag. In this paper, a mixture prediction model is proposed for perioperative adverse events of heart failure, which combined with the advantages of the Deep Pyramid Convolutional Neural Networks (DPCNN) and Extreme Gradient Boosting (XGBOOST). The DPCNN was used to automatically extract features from patient’s diagnostic texts, and the text… More >

    FP-STE: A Novel Node Failure Prediction Method Based on Spatio-Temporal Feature Extraction in Data Centers

    Yang Yang1,*, Jing Dong1, Chao Fang2, Ping Xie3, Na An3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.123, No.3, pp. 1015-1031, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.09404

    Abstract The development of cloud computing and virtualization technology has brought great challenges to the reliability of data center services. Data centers typically contain a large number of compute and storage nodes which may fail and affect the quality of service. Failure prediction is an important means of ensuring service availability. Predicting node failure in cloud-based data centers is challenging because the failure symptoms reflected have complex characteristics, and the distribution imbalance between the failure sample and the normal sample is widespread, resulting in inaccurate failure prediction. Targeting these challenges, this paper proposes a novel failure prediction method FP-STE (Failure Prediction… More >

    Novel Ensemble Modeling Method for Enhancing Subset Diversity Using Clustering Indicator Vector Based on Stacked Autoencoder

    Yanzhen Wang1, Xuefeng Yan1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 123-144, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.07052

    Abstract A single model cannot satisfy the high-precision prediction requirements given the high nonlinearity between variables. By contrast, ensemble models can effectively solve this problem. Three key factors for improving the accuracy of ensemble models are namely the high accuracy of a submodel, the diversity between subsample sets and the optimal ensemble method. This study presents an improved ensemble modeling method to improve the prediction precision and generalization capability of the model. Our proposed method first uses a bagging algorithm to generate multiple subsample sets. Second, an indicator vector is defined to describe these subsample sets. Third, subsample sets are selected… More >
