Elhoseny, M., N. Metawa, and A. E. Hassanien, "An automated information system to ensure quality in higher education institutions", 2016 12th International Computer Engineering Conference (ICENCO), , Cairo, 28-29 Dec. 2016. Abstract

Despite the great efforts to assure quality in higher education institutions, the ambiguity of its related concepts and requirements constitute a big challenge when trying to implement it as an automated information system. The present work introduces a framework for an automated information system that manages the quality assurance in higher educations institutions. The aim of designing such a system is to provide an automation tool that avoids unnecessary and redundant tasks associated to quality in higher education institutions. In addition, the proposed system helps all higher education stockholders to handle and monitor their tasks. Moreover, it aims to help the quality assurance center in a higher education institution to apply its qualitys standards, and to make sure that they are being maintained and enhanced. This information system contains a core module and 17 sub-modules, which are described in this paper.

In the recent days, a great deal of researches is interested in segmentation of different organs in medical images. Segmentation of liver is as an initial phase in liver diagnosis, it is also a challenging task due to its similarity with other organs intensity values. This paper aims to propose a grey wolf optimization based approach for segmenting liver from the abdomen CT images. The proposed approach combines three parts to achieve this goal. It combines the usage of grey wolf optimization, statistical image of liver, simple region growing and Mean shift clustering technique. The initial cleaned image is passed to Grey Wolf (GW) optimization technique. It calculated the centroids of a predefined number of clusters. According to each pixel intensity value in the image, the pixel is labeled by the number of the nearest cluster. A binary statistical image of liver is used to extract the potential area that liver might exist in. It is multiplied by the clustered image to get an initial segmented liver. Then region growing (RG) is used to enhance the segmented liver. Finally, mean shift clustering technique is applied to extract the regions of interest in the segmented liver. A set of 38 images, taken in pre-contrast phase, was used for liver segmentation and testing the proposed approach. For evaluation, similarity index measure is used to validate the success of the proposed approach. The experimental results of the proposed approach showed that the overall accuracy offered by the proposed approach, results in 94.08% accuracy.

Plant diseases is one of the major bottlenecks in agricultural production that have bad effects on the economic of any country. Automatic detection of such disease could minimize these effects. Features selection is a usual pre-processing step used for automatic disease detection systems. It is an important process for detecting and eliminating noisy, irrelevant, and redundant data. Thus, it could lead to improve the detection performance. In this paper, an improved moth-flame approach to automatically detect tomato diseases was proposed. The moth-flame fitness function depends on the rough sets dependency degree and it takes into a consideration the number of selected features. The proposed algorithm used both of the power of exploration of the moth flame and the high performance of rough sets for the feature selection task to find the set of features maximizing the classification accuracy which was evaluated using the support vector machine (SVM). The performance of the MFORSFS algorithm was evaluated using many benchmark datasets taken from UCI machine learning data repository and then compared with feature selection approaches based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) and Genetic Algorithms (GA) with rough sets. The proposed algorithm was then used in a real-life problem, detecting tomato diseases (Powdery mildew and early blight) where a real dataset of tomato disease were manually built and a tomato disease detection approach was proposed and evaluated using this dataset. The experimental results showed that the proposed algorithm was efficient in terms of Recall, Precision, Accuracy and F-Score, as long as feature size reduction and execution time.

M.Rizk-Allaha, R., A. E. Hassanien, and M. Elhoseny, "A multi-objective transportation model under neutrosophic environment", Computers & Electrical Engineering, 2018. AbstractWebsite

In this paper, a new compromise algorithm for multi-objective transportation problem (MO-TP) is developed, which is inspired by Zimmermann's fuzzy programming and the neutrosophic set terminology. The proposed NCPA is characterized by assigning three membership functions for each objective namely, truth membership, indeterminacy membership and falsity membership. With the membership functions for all objectives, a neutrosophic compromise programming model is constructed with the aim to find best compromise solution (BCS). This model can cover a wide spectrum of BCSs by controlling the membership functions interactively. The performance of the NCPA is validated by measuring the ranking degree using TOPSIS approach. Illustrative examples are reported and compared with exists models in the literature. Based on the provided comparisons, NCPA is superior to fuzzy and different approaches.

The global prevalence of hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is approximately 3% and one-fifth of all HCV carriers live in the Middle East, where Egypt has the highest global incidence of HCV infection. Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models were used in many applications for predicting the potential effects of chemicals on human health and environment. The adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) is one of the most popular regression methods for building a nonlinear QSAR model. However, the quality of ANFIS is influenced by the size of the descriptors, so descriptor selection methods have been proposed, although these methods are affected by slow convergence and high time complexity. To avoid these limitations, the antlion optimizer was used to select relevant descriptors, before constructing a nonlinear QSAR model based on the PIC50 and these descriptors using ANFIS. In our experiments, 1029 compounds were used, which comprised 579 HCVNS5B inhibitors (PIC50 < ~14) and 450 non-HCVNS5B inhibitors (PIC50 > ~14). The experimental results showed that the proposed QSAR model obtained acceptable accuracy according to different measures, where R2 was 0.952 and 0.923 for the training and testing sets, respectively, using cross-validation, while R2 LOO
was 0.8822 using leave-one-out (LOO).
