    Reliability Analysis Based on Optimization Random Forest Model and MCMC

    Fan Yang1,2,3,*, Jianwei Ren1,2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.125, No.2, pp. 801-814, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.08889

    Abstract Based on the rapid simulation of Markov Chain on samples in failure region, a novel method of reliability analysis combining Monte Carlo Markov Chain (MCMC) with random forest algorithm was proposed. Firstly, a series of samples distributing around limit state function are generated by MCMC. Then, the samples were taken as training data to establish the random forest model. Afterwards, Monte Carlo simulation was used to evaluate the failure probability. Finally, examples demonstrate the proposed method possesses higher computational efficiency and accuracy. More >

    Rizwan Ali Naqvi1, Muhammad Adnan Khan2, *, Nauman Malik2, Shazia Saqib2, Tahir Alyas2, Dildar Hussain3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.65, No.2, pp. 1221-1236, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.011686

    Abstract Roman Urdu has been used for text messaging over the Internet for years especially in Indo-Pak Subcontinent. Persons from the subcontinent may speak the same Urdu language but they might be using different scripts for writing. The communication using the Roman characters, which are used in the script of Urdu language on social media, is now considered the most typical standard of communication in an Indian landmass that makes it an expensive information supply. English Text classification is a solved problem but there have been only a few efforts to examine the rich information supply of Roman Urdu in the… More >

    Classification Algorithm Optimization Based on Triple-GAN

    Kun Fang1, 2, Jianquan Ouyang1, *

    Journal on Artificial Intelligence, Vol.2, No.1, pp. 1-15, 2020, DOI:10.32604/jai.2020.09738

    Abstract Generating an Adversarial network (GAN) has shown great development prospects in image generation and semi-supervised learning and has evolved into TripleGAN. However, there are still two problems that need to be solved in Triple-GAN: based on the KL divergence distribution structure, gradients are easy to disappear and training instability occurs. Since Triple-GAN tags the samples manually, the manual marking workload is too large. Marked uneven and so on. This article builds on this improved Triple-GAN model (Improved Triple-GAN), which uses Random Forests to classify real samples, automate tagging of leaf nodes, and use Least Squares Generative Adversarial Networks (LSGAN) ideological… More >

    Automatic Sleep Staging Algorithm Based on Random Forest and Hidden Markov Model

    Junbiao Liu1, 6, Duanpo Wu2, 3, Zimeng Wang2, Xinyu Jin1, *, Fang Dong4, Lurong Jiang5, Chenyi Cai6

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.123, No.1, pp. 401-426, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.08731

    Abstract In the field of medical informatics, sleep staging is a challenging and timeconsuming task undertaken by sleep experts. According to the new standard of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the stages of sleep are divided into wakefulness (W), rapid eye movement (REM) and non-rapid eye movement (NREM) which includes three sleep stages (N1, N2 and N3) that describe the depth of sleep. This study aims to establish an automatic sleep staging algorithm based on the improved weighted random forest (WRF) and Hidden Markov Model (HMM) using only the features extracted from double-channel EEG signals. The WRF classification model… More >

    Fault Diagnosis of Helical Gear Box using Variational Mode Decomposition and Random Forest Algorithm

    Akhil Muralidharan1,2, V. Sugumaran1, K.P Soman3, M. Amarnath4

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.10, No.1, pp. 55-80, 2014, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2014.010.055

    Abstract Gears are machine elements that transmit motion by means of successively engaging teeth. In purely scientific terms, gears are used to transmit motion. A faulty gear is a matter of serious concern as it affects the functionality of a machine to a great extent. Thus it is essential to diagnose the faults at an initial stage so as to reduce the losses that might be incurred. This necessitates the need for continuous monitoring of the gears. The vibrations produced by gears from good and simulated faulty conditions can be effectively used to detect the faults in these gears. The introduction… More >

    Application of the random forest algorithm for predicting the persistence of seed banks in the Horqin Sandy Land, China

    Tang Y1, SS Jin2

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.87, pp. 280-285, 2018, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2018.87.280

    Abstract Persistent seed banks have been detected in the Horqin Sandy Land, China using experimental methods. In this study, we used seed traits (i.e. seed mass and seed shape) to predict the persistence of seed banks using the random forest algorithm. The results showed that the mean decrease in accuracy for seed mass and seed shape was 18.26 and 9.90, respectively, suggesting that seed mass was a better predictor than seed shape. With increasing seed mass, the log of P (where P is the ratio of the number of votes selecting existence of a persistent seed bank to the number of… More >

    An Ensemble Based Hand Vein Pattern Authentication System

    M. Rajalakshmi*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.114, No.2, pp. 209-220, 2018, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2018.114.209

    Abstract Amongst several biometric traits, Vein pattern biometric has drawn much attention among researchers and diverse users. It gains its importance due to its difficulty in reproduction and inherent security advantages. Many research papers have dealt with the topic of new generation biometric solutions such as iris and vein biometrics. However, most implementations have been based on small datasets due to the difficulties in obtaining samples. In this paper, a deeper study has been conducted on previously suggested methods based on Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) using a larger dataset. Also, modifications are suggested for implementation using ensemble methods. Ensembles were used… More >

    Abstract The popularity of news, which conveys newsworthy events which occur during day to people, is substantially important for the spectator or audience. People interact with news website and share news links or their opinions. This study uses supervised learning based machine learning techniques in order to predict news popularity in social media sources. These techniques consist of basically two phrases: a) the training data is sent as input to the classifier algorithm, b) the performance of pre-learned algorithm is tested on the testing data. And so, a knowledge discovery from the data is performed. In this context, firstly, twelve datasets… More >

    A Privacy-Preserving Algorithm for Clinical Decision-Support Systems Using Random Forest

    Alia Alabdulkarim1, Mznah Al-Rodhaan2, Yuan Tian*,3, Abdullah Al-Dhelaan2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.58, No.3, pp. 585-601, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2019.05637

    Abstract Clinical decision-support systems are technology-based tools that help healthcare providers enhance the quality of their services to satisfy their patients and earn their trust. These systems are used to improve physicians’ diagnostic processes in terms of speed and accuracy. Using data-mining techniques, a clinical decision support system builds a classification model from hospital’s dataset for diagnosing new patients using their symptoms. In this work, we propose a privacy-preserving clinical decision-support system that uses a privacy-preserving random forest algorithm to diagnose new symptoms without disclosing patients’ information and exposing them to cyber and network attacks. Solving the same problem with a… More >
