Abstract—Extraction of relevant features is of significant importance for brain tumor segmentation systems. In this paper, with the objective of improving brain tumor segmentation accuracy, we present an improved feature extraction component to take advantage of the correlation between intracranial structure deformation and the compression from brain tumor growth. Using 3-dimensional non-rigid registration and deformation modeling techniques, the component is capable of measuring lateral ventricular (LaV) deformation in the volumetric magnetic resonance (MR) images. By verifying the location of the extracted LaV deformation feature data and applying the features on brain tumor segmentation with widely used classification algorithms, the proposed component is evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively with promising results on 11 datasets comprising real patient and simulated images.

In this paper the possibility of using the human heart sounds as a human print is investigated. To evaluate the performance and the uniqueness of the proposed approach, tests using a high resolution auscultation digital stethoscope are done for nearly 80 heart sound samples. The verification approach consists of a robust feature extraction with a specified configuration in conjunction with Gaussian mixture modeling. The similarity of two samples is estimated by measuring the difference between their log-likelihood similarities of the features. The experimental results obtained show that the overall accuracy offered by the employed Gaussian mixture modeling reach up to 85%. The identification approach consists of a robust feature extraction with a specified configuration in conjunction with LBG-VQ. The experimental results obtained show that the overall accuracy offered by the employed LBG-VQ reach up to 88.7%

Map exploration is a fundamental problem in mobile robots. This paper presents a distributed algorithm that coordinates a team of autonomous mobile robots to explore an unknown environment. The proposed strategy is based on frontiers which are the regions on the boundary between open and unexplored space. With this strategy, robots are guided to move constantly to the nearest frontier to reduce the size of unknown region. Based on the PSO model incorporated in the algorithm, robots are navigated towards remote frontier after exploring the local area. The exploration completes when there is no frontier cell in the environment. The experiments implemented on both simulated and real robot scenarios show that the proposed algorithm is capable of completing the exploration task. Compared to the conventional method of randomly selecting frontier, the proposed algorithm proves its efficiency by the decreased 60% exploration time at least. Additional experimental results show the decreased coverage time when the number of robots increases, which further suggests the validity, efficiency and scalability.

In this paper the possibility of using the human heart signal
feature for human verification is investigated. The presented approach
consists of two different robust feature extraction algorithms with a specified
configuration in conjunction with Gaussian mixture modeling. The
similarity of two samples is estimated by measuring the difference between
their negative log-likelihood of the features. To evaluate the performance
and the uniqueness of the presented approach tests using a
high resolution auscultation digital stethoscope are done for nearly 80
heart sound samples. The experimental results obtained show that the
accuracy offered by the employed Gaussian mixture modeling reach up
to 100% for 7 samples using the first feature extraction algorithm and
6 samples using the second feature extraction algorithm and varies with
average 85%.

Hassanien, " Performance Evaluation of Computed Tomography Liver Image Segmentation Approachers", The IEEE International Conference on Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS2012). , Pune. India., 4-7 Dec. 2012,, pp. 109 - 114, 2012. Abstract

This paper presents and evaluates the performance of two well-known segmentation approaches that were applied on liver computed tomography (CT) images. The two approaches are K-means and normalized cuts. An experiment was applied on ten liver CT scan images, with reference segmentations, in order to test the performance of the two approaches. Experimental results were compared using an evaluation measure that highlights segmentation accuracy. Based on the obtained results in this study, it has been observed that K-means clustering algorithm outperformed normalized cuts segmentation algorithm for cases where region of interest depicts a closed shape, while, normalized cuts algorithm obtained better results with non-circular clusters. Moreover, for K-means clustering, different initial partitions can result in different final clusters.

Zhu, " An Innovative Approach for Attribute Reduction using Rough Sets and Flower Pollination Optimisation ", 20th International Conference on Knowledge Based and Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems, KES2016,, , United Kingdom., 5-7 September , 2016. Abstract

Optimal search is a major challenge for wrapper-based attribute reduction. Rough sets have been used with much success, but current hill-climbing rough set approaches to attribute reduction are insufficient for finding optimal solutions. In this paper, we propose an innovative use of an intelligent optimisation method, namely the flower search algorithm (FSA), with rough sets for attribute reduction. FSA is a relatively recent computational intelligence algorithm, which is inspired by the pollination process of flowers. For many applications, the attribute space, besides being very large, is also rough with many different local minima which makes it difficult to converge towards an optimal solution. FSA can adaptively search the attribute space for optimal attribute combinations that maximise a given fitness function, with the fitness function used in our work being rough set-based classification. Experimental results on various benchmark datasets from the UCI repository confirm our technique to perform well in comparison with competing methods.
