  • License Plate Recognition Algorithm Based on Convolutional Neural Network

    Abstract: In order to improve the problem of unequal suspension positions in the traditional license plate recognition system, this paper introduces the convolutional neural network algorithm into the license plate recognition system, and conducts a series of tests and corrections to meet the current license plate recognition system. This paper proposes for the first time that the flood filling algorithm is applied to the preprocessing of the license plate image, the recognized contour is divided into regions, and then the license plate inclination angle is offset, and rough positioning and cutting are performed to make the vehicle shot from the side The picture can also fully identify the license plate, and finally judge according to the aspect ratio of the license plate and the standard aspect ratio, and get whether the recognized license plate is. The experimental results show that the model utilizes the advantages of convolutional neural network so that the model can recognize classification features more accurately.

  • Research and Implementation of FacialNet Based on Convolutional Neural Network

    Abstract: Deep learning, artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies are constantly being integrated into people’s daily lives. Even small vending machines that can be seen everywhere in life have begun to use facial payment methods. The detection and recognition of face images is no longer unattainable, but the analysis and recognition of face information and characteristics (gender, age, race, etc.) is still not fully mature, in order to improve the accuracy of face information recognition. In this paper, a face information recognition model is designed. The feature extraction part uses an eight-layer convolutional neural network, and then uses two fully connected modules as the classifiers for gender recognition and age recognition. The experimental results show that the model uses the advantages of the convolutional neural network so that the model can predict the gender and age of the face more accurately.

  • Decision Making Using Fuzzy Cognitive Maps in Post-Triage of Non-Critical Elderly Patients

    Open Access

    Abstract:  For patients arriving in the Emergency Departments (EDs) of hospitals a key aspect is to classify patients and identify high-risk patients since they have the potential for rapid deterioration during the waiting time. Triage is a widely applied and well-known process of evaluating and categorizing patients’ condition, in EDs. On the other hand, EDs are frequently overcrowded, which  makes triage an extremely challenging and demanding process in order to ensure that patients stepping into the ED are given the appropriate medical attention in time. This paper discusses the introduction of a general decision making procedure based on Fuzzy Cognitive Maps so that to create a Medical Decision Support System for Post-Triage decisions. The case of non-emergent and non-urgent elderly patients is examined and the corresponding model is developed.

  • Comparing Two Feature Selection Methods for Influenza-A Antivral Resistance Determination.

    Open Access

    Abstract:  The paper thoroughly analyzes the use of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) in comparison to Information Gain (IG) as a feature selection method for improving the classification of Influenza-A antiviral resistance. Neural networks were used as the classification method of choice with PCA, while decision trees were the classification of choice with IG. The experiment was conducted on cDNA viral segments of Influenza-A belonging to the H1N1 strain. The 7 Infleunza-A segments generating the best results were used for comparison. Sequences from each segment were further divided into Adamantane-resistant, & non-Adamantane-resistant. Accuracy, sensitivity, specificity precision & time were used as performance measures. Using PCA for feature selection increased preprocessing speeds from an average processing time of 1.5 hours to 5 minutes, as opposed to IG. IG had higher accuracy. The best accuracy generated by PCA & NNs on the M1/M2 was 96.5%, while that of IG & DTs was 98.2% Using PCA features & DTs also generated a comparable accuracy to that of IG features & DT at 97.6% on the M1/M2 segment. There was a 88%  increase in feature selection processing speed when using PCA compared to IG on the M1/M2 segment alone

  • The Impact of Trait Anxiety under a Painful Stimulus on the Chaotic Synchronization of Respiration and Pulse Waves

    Open Access

    Abstract: Thus far, attention has been paid to the relation between pain and anxiety, which has been studied. On the other hands, the earlier studies have hinted at the importance of considering mental and physical health from a holistic perspective, while taking into consideration the principles that prescribe the chaotic behavior of living organisms. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to use the respiration and pulse waves to examine the nature of the chaotic connection between biosignals involved in people’s mental and physical conditions, particularly those involved in the psychological trait of anxiety under a painful stimulus in this case. The results showed that with the high anxiety group, the extent of the synchronicity between their respiration and pulse waves under a painful stimulus increased, while this decreased for the low anxiety group. In other words, chaos dynamics for living systems are expressed in synchronous phenomena for the LLE for respiration and pulse waves. It also implied that these dynamics are prescribed by trait anxiety under a painful stimulus. This has opened up the possibility that, in the future, the cross-correlation function for LLE in pulse waves and respiration will make contributions to treating and assessing chronic pain in the field of clinical medicine.

    Formation of efficient and inefficient social convention driven by conformity bias

    Abstract: Social conventions govern social behavior in many ways, ranging from left- and right-hand traffic to greetings. We sometimes find that inefficient social conventions, such as bullying in a class, are spontaneously formed, where almost all the people in the group are at a disadvantage. Although such a convention can be disadvantageous for all the people in the group, why are those conventions formed and continue to be maintained? A conformity bias, the behavioral tendency with which people take an action that a majority of the group take, can be one of the key ingredients of this phenomenon. In this study, we investigated the impact of conformity bias and an individual’s trial-and-error learning on the spontaneous formation of social conventions. Analyzing the stationary states of the dynamics and the tipping points at which the dynamics are divided into one converging to the efficient and the other converging to the inefficient convention, we found that by increasing the extent of conformity bias, an inefficient convention tends to be formed. On the other hand, an individual’s trial-and-error learning can suppress conformity bias and promote the formation of efficient conventions.

  • Terahertz Spectrum Recognition of Pathogens Based on PCA-Siamese Neural Network

    Open Access

    Abstract: In the terahertz time-domain spectroscopy technique, 16 common pathogens were experimentally studied and their characteristics absorption spectra in the frequency range of 0.1 to 2.2THz were obtained. The terahertz absorption spectra of 16 common pathogens were trained and identified by Siamese neural network method. First, the terahertz absorption spectra of the 16 pathogens were reduced by PCA to construct training data. Then, the constructed Siamese neural network model was trained by back propagation. Finally, the pathogen measured at different times was used as the target spectrum to evaluate the model, after comparing with the training data, the matching absorption spectrum was obtained, and the recognition rate reached 97.34%. The recognition results fully indicate that the identification of different kinds of pathogens can be recognized by Siamese neural network, which provides an effective method of the detection and identification of pathogens by terahertz spectroscopy.
