    Predicting the Type of Crime: Intelligence Gathering and Crime Analysis

    Saleh Albahli1, Anadil Alsaqabi1, Fatimah Aldhubayi1, Hafiz Tayyab Rauf2,*, Muhammad Arif3, Mazin Abed Mohammed4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.3, pp. 2317-2341, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014113

    Abstract Crimes are expected to rise with an increase in population and the rising gap between society’s income levels. Crimes contribute to a significant portion of the socioeconomic loss to any society, not only through its indirect damage to the social fabric and peace but also the more direct negative impacts on the economy, social parameters, and reputation of a nation. Policing and other preventive resources are limited and have to be utilized. The conventional methods are being superseded by more modern approaches of machine learning algorithms capable of making predictions where the relationships between the features and the outcomes are… More >

    Research on Prevention of Citrus Anthracnose Based on Image Retrieval Technology

    Xuefei Du*, Xuyu Xiang

    Journal of Information Hiding and Privacy Protection, Vol.2, No.1, pp. 11-19, 2020, DOI:10.32604/jihpp.2020.010114

    Abstract Citrus anthracnose is a common fungal disease in citrus-growing areas in China, which causes very serious damage. At present, the manual management method is time-consuming and labor-consuming, which reduces the control effect of citrus anthracnose. Therefore, by designing and running the image retrieval system of citrus anthracnose, the automatic recognition and analysis of citrus anthracnose control were realized, and the control effect of citrus anthracnose was improved. In this paper, based on the self-collected and collated citrus anthracnose image database, we use three image features to realize an image retrieval system based on citrus anthracnose through SMV, AP clustering optimization.… More >

    Validating the Correct Wearing of Protection Mask by Taking a Selfie: Design of a Mobile Application “CheckYourMask” to Limit the Spread of COVID-19

    Karim Hammoudi1,2,*, Adnane Cabani3, Halim Benhabiles4, Mahmoud Melkemi1,2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.124, No.3, pp. 1049-1059, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.011663

    Abstract In a context of a virus that is transmissive by sputtering, wearing masks appear necessary to protect the wearer and to limit the propagation of the disease. Currently, we are facing the 2019–2020 coronavirus pandemic. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease with first symptoms similar to the flu. The symptom of COVID-19 was reported first in China and very quickly spreads to the rest of the world. The COVID-19 contagiousness is known to be high by comparison with the flu. In this paper, we propose a design of a mobile application for permitting everyone having a smartphone and… More >

    An Application Review of Artificial Intelligence in Prevention and Cure of COVID-19 Pandemic

    Peipeng Yu1, Zhihua Xia1, *, Jianwei Fei1, Sunil Kumar Jha1, 2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.65, No.1, pp. 743-760, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.011391

    Abstract Coronaviruses are a well-known family of viruses that can infect humans or animals. Recently, the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread worldwide. All countries in the world are working hard to control the coronavirus disease. However, many countries are faced with a lack of medical equipment and an insufficient number of medical personnel because of the limitations of the medical system, which leads to the mass spread of diseases. As a powerful tool, artificial intelligence (AI) has been successfully applied to solve various complex problems ranging from big data analysis to computer vision. In the process of epidemic control, many algorithms… More >

    Development of quality metrics for ambulatory pediatric cardiology: Infection prevention

    Jonathan N. Johnson1,2, Cindy S. Barrett3, Wayne H. Franklin4, Eric M. Graham5, Nancy J. Halnon6, Brandy A. Hattendorf7, Catherine D. Krawczeski8, James J. McGovern9, Matthew J. O’Connor10, Amy H. Schultz11, Jeffrey M. Vinocur12, Devyani Chowdhury13, Jeffrey B. Anderson14

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.6, pp. 756-761, 2017, DOI:10.1111/chd.12519

    Abstract Introduction: In 2012, the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC) Adult Congenital and Pediatric Cardiology Council established a program to develop quality metrics to guide ambulatory practices for pediatric cardiology. The council chose five areas on which to focus their efforts; chest pain, Kawasaki Disease, tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries after arterial switch, and infection prevention. Here, we sought to describe the process, evaluation, and results of the Infection Prevention Committee’s metric design process.
    Methods: The infection prevention metrics team consisted of 12 members from 11 institutions in North America. The group agreed to work on specific infection… More >

    Efficacy of dexmedetomidine in prevention of junctional ectopic tachycardia and acute kidney injury after pediatric cardiac surgery: A meta‐analysis

    Xin Li MMed*, Chengxin Zhang*, Di Dai MMed, Haiyuan Liu, Shenglin Ge

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.5, pp. 799-807, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12674

    Abstract Objective: We conducted a meta‐analysis to evaluate the effects of prophylactic perioperative dexmedetomidine administration on postoperative junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET) and acute kidney injury (AKI) in pediatric patients having under‐ gone cardiac surgery.
    Design: This systematic review was registered with PROSPERO (CRD42017083880). Databases including PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and Web of Science were searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observa‐ tional cohort studies from its inception to March 2018. Two reviewers independently screened literature, extracted data, and assessed the quality of included studies using the Jadad scale and Newcastle‐Ottawa score. Meta‐analysis was then conducted by RevMan… More >

    Structural Integrity and Durability of High Voltage Composite (Non-Ceramic) Insulators

    M. Kumosa1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.3, No.1, pp. 35-50, 2007, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2007.003.035

    Abstract This paper deals with the structural integrity and durability of suspension composite (non-ceramic, polymer) insulators widely used in power transmission systems around the world. Under certain conditions, the insulators can fail in-service both electrically and mechanically resulting in the drop of energized transmission lines and power outages. In this work, predominantly mechanical failures of the insulators are discussed. In particular, the most important characteristics of a catastrophic failure process called brittle fracture are described. Subsequently, two examples of insulator failures by brittle fracture are shown and their causes explained. Finally, several recommendations on how to avoid brittle fracture as well… More >

    Relations between optical nerve damage, intrCular pressure and in vivo ocular tissue properties monitoring strategies for glaucoma diagnosis and prevention

    David CC LAM*, Leo K-K LEUNG, Match W-L KO, R. G-Z CHEN, I-S CHAN

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.20, No.3, pp. 85-86, 2011, DOI:10.3970/icces.2011.020.085

    Abstract The eye is a biomechanical organ where the health of the optical nerves and vision are affected by the intrCular pressure and the ocular tissue structure. The ocular pressure is the primary parameter monitored by opticians and ophthalmologists to determine the ocular health of the eye to prevent glaucoma where 50% of the vision can be lost before detection by the patient. Elevated intrCular pressure is clinically correlated with the degeneration of the optic nerves, but the biomechanical mechanism for the degeneration remains speculative. In this study, we present the results from biomechanical modeling of nerve damage as a function… More >
