  • Analyzing the Implications of COVID-19 Pandemic through an Intelligent-Computing Technique
  • Abstract The outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 virus or COVID-19) disease was declared pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020. COVID-19 has already affected more than 211 nations. In such a bleak scenario, it becomes imperative to analyze and identify those regions in Saudi Arabia that are at high risk. A preemptive study done in the context of predicting the possible COVID-19 hotspots would facilitate in the implementation of prompt and targeted countermeasures against SARS-CoV-2, thus saving many lives. Working towards this intent, the present study adopts a decision making based methodology of…

  • Smart COVID-3D-SCNN: A Novel Method to Classify X-ray Images of COVID-19
  • Abstract The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has spread worldwide, and millions of people are being infected. Image or detection classification is one of the first application areas of deep learning, which has a significant contribution to medical image analysis. In classification detection, one or more images (detection) are usually used as input, and diagnostic variables (such as whether there is a disease) are used as output. The novel coronavirus has spread across the world, infecting millions of people. Early-stage detection of critical cases of COVID-19 is essential. X-ray scans are used in clinical studies to diagnose COVID-19 and Pneumonia early.…

  • An Effective and Secure Quality Assurance System for a Computer Science Program
  • Abstract Improving the quality assurance (QA) processes and acquiring accreditation are top priorities for academic programs. The learning outcomes (LOs) assessment and continuous quality improvement represent core components of the quality assurance system (QAS). Current assessment methods suffer deficiencies related to accuracy and reliability, and they lack well-organized processes for continuous improvement planning. Moreover, the absence of automation, and integration in QA processes forms a major obstacle towards developing efficient quality system. There is a pressing need to adopt security protocols that provide required security services to safeguard the valuable information processed by QAS as well. This research proposes an effective…

  • Optimal Load Balancing in Cloud Environment of Virtual Machines
  • Abstract Cloud resource scheduling is gaining prominence with the increasing trends of reliance on cloud infrastructure solutions. Numerous sets of cloud resource scheduling models were evident in the literature. Cloud resource scheduling refers to the distinct set of algorithms or programs the service providers engage to maintain the service level allocation for various resources over a virtual environment. The model proposed in this manuscript schedules resources of virtual machines under potential volatility aspects, which can be applied for any priority metric chosen by the server administrators. Also, the model can be flexible for any time frame-based analysis of the load factor.…

  • System Dynamics Forecasting on Taiwan Power Supply Chain
  • Abstract This research aims to study the sustainability of Taiwan power supply chain based on system dynamics forecasting. The paper tries to investigate electricity shortage effects not only on the industrial side, but also from the standpoint of society. In our model, different forecasting methods such as linear regression, time series analysis, and gray forecasting are also considered to predict the parameters. Further tests such as the structure, dimension, historical fit, and sensitivity of the model are also conducted in this paper. Through analysis forecasting result, we believe that the demand for electricity in Taiwan will continue to increase to a…

  • Design of Miniature UWB-Based Antenna by Employing a Tri-Sectional SIR Feeder
  • Abstract A novel ultra-wideband (UWB)-based microstrip antenna is presented in this work by using a slotted patch resonator, a tri-sectional stepped impedance resonator (SIR) feeder, as well as a reduced ground plane. The whole structure was realized on an FR4 substrate. The impact of incorporating several cases of ground planes on the input reflection has been thoroughly investigated under the same tri-sectional SIR feeder and by employing a slotted patch radiator. Since the complete ground plane presents an inadequate frequency response, by reducing the ground plane, the induced UWB responses are apparent while the antenna exhibits higher impedance bandwidth. The impact…

  • A Hybrid Heuristic Algorithm for Solving COVID-19’s Social Distancing at Universities Campus
  • Abstract Social distancing during COVID-19 has become one of the most important measures in reducing the risks of the spread of the virus. Implementing these measures at universities is crucial and directly related to the physical attendance of the populations of students, professors, employees, and other members on campus. This research proposes an automated scheduling approach that can help universities and schools comply with the social distancing regulations by providing assistance in avoiding huge assemblages of people. Furthermore, this paper proposes a novel course timetable-scheduling scheme based on four main constraints. First, a distance of two meters must be maintained between…

  • Cost Effective Decentralized Key Management Framework for IoT
  • Abstract Security is a primary concern in communication for reliable transfer of information between the authenticated members, which becomes more complex in a network of Internet of Things (IoT). To provide security for group communication a key management scheme incorporating Bilinear pairing technique with Multicast and Unicast key management protocol (BMU-IOT) for decentralized networks has been proposed. The first part of the proposed work is to divide the network into clusters where sensors are connected to and is administered by cluster head. Each sensor securely shares its secret keys with the cluster head using unicast. Based on these decryption keys, the…

  • Fuzzy Based Reliable Load Balanced Routing Approach for Ad hoc Sensor Networks
  • Abstract Energy management and packet delivery rate are the important factors in ad hoc networks. It is the major network where nodes share the information without administration. Due to the mobility of nodes, maximum energy is spent on transmission of packets. Mostly energy is wasted on packet dropping and false route discovery. In this research work, Fuzzy Based Reliable Load Balanced Routing Approach (RLRA) is proposed to provide high energy efficiency and more network lifetime using optimal multicast route discovery mechanism. It contains three phases. In first phase, optimal multicast route discovery is initiated to resolve the link failures. In second…

  • Object Tracking-Based “Follow-Me” Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) System
  • Abstract The applications of information technology (IT) tools and techniques have, over the years, simplified complex problem solving procedures. But the power of automation is inhibited by the technicality in manning advanced equipment. To this end, tools deliberately combating this inhibition and advancing technological growth are the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). UAVs are rapidly taking over major industries such as logistics, security, and cinematography. Among others, this is a very efficient way of carrying out missions unconventional to humans. An application area of this technology is the local film industry which is not producing quality movies primarily due to the lack…
