Title :: A Survey on Patient Flow Prediction via mutually-Correcting process
Country :: India
Authors :: B.Ramesh Kumar || Basmath.P
Page No. :: 01-06

Over the past decade due to increasing the population Overcrowding in emergency care unit (CU) departments is a problem in many countries around the world, including the United States and Chile. This Emergency department (ED) overcrowding causes problems for indispensible for shortening the length of hospital stays, improving patient outcomes, allocating critical care resources, including increased waiting times. As crowding increases, the quality of care is reduced due to lack of adequate resources. Generally predicting the transition processes of patients (PFP) IS more difficult and crucial process, because predicting patient flow includes patients' duration time within each care unit and transition probability among different units, and including patient's underlying condition and clinical state, disease progression, and availability of care team and staff resources. So Data mining is an effective way to solve such problems in the medical service. This paper surveys various techniques and methods used to Patient Flow Prediction in the Medical care units.

Title :: Impact of Shading on the Output Power of Photovoltaic Array
Country :: India
Authors :: Mohiuddin || Mr. Saif Ahmad || Mohd Tahseen
Page No. :: 14-17

The photovoltaic systems are to make it energy efficient. Partial shading reduces the energy yield of photovoltaic systems and introduces multiple peaks in the P-V characteristics. The maximum power point trackers work in conjunction with the boost converter and track the global peak in the P-V characteristics. The boost converter used for maximum power point trackers is generally designed to operate with high efficiency at the maximum power point voltage of the array by assuming a single peak power point on the P-V characteristics. However, the efficiency of the boost converter varies with the input voltage, and the maximum power point of the load when the converter efficiency is considered is different from the maximum power point of the photovoltaic array..............

Title :: Torque Ripple Minimization of Switched Reluctance Motor by Implementing Model Predictive Control Strategy with IGBT Switching Converter Technique
Country :: India
Authors :: S.Muruganantham || R.Ashokkumar
Page No. :: >28-35

This paper presents effective control characteristics to improve the performance of a tremendous effectual machine entitled Switched reluctance motor. Some of the controllers give better performance to get premeditated value; out of these controllers Model Predictive controller exhibit a good control strategy on power electronics devices. In this model predictive controller technique is employed in switched reluctance motor with a perfect switching converter. The main drawback of Switched reluctance motor is torque ripple and acoustic noise which are caused due to non linearity in winding current and electromagnetic property. The advantage of MPC is that it allows the easy inclusion of system constraints, thus different control objectives can be flexibly taken in account in different applications...........

Title :: Comparison of Naïve Bayes and Least-Square Support Vector Machine classifier for prediction of Swine Flu
Country :: India
Authors :: Dr. Gurmanik Kaur || Er. Arwinder Kaur
Page No. :: 36-39

Disease prediction has long been regarded as a critical topic. Artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques have already been developed to solve this type of medical care problem. Our research focuses on this aspect of medical diagnosis by learning pattern through the collected data for swine flu. This research has developed naïve bayes and least-square support vector machine (LS-SVM) classifier for predicting the presence or absence of swine flu. We have generated 96 symptoms sets after consulting with medical practitioners from various hospitals of Punjab, INDIA. Using LS-SVM, we have achieved better prediction accuracy (100%) as compared to naïve bayes model . This assessment presents the importance and advantages posed by LS-SVM model for prediction of biological variables.

Page No. :: 47-51

Green Concrete is that type of concrete that is used to create the construction materials having a lesser effect on the environment. This version of concrete is made up from the mix of the industrial waste and inorganic polymer. The most commonly way to produce green concrete is by using the industrial waste products such as fly ash, blast furnace slag, and cement mixture. This means concrete that uses less energy in its production & produces less carbon dioxide than normal concrete is green concrete. It has many advantages such as reduction in shrinkage & creep, green Concrete uses local and recycled materials in concrete and the heat of hydration of green concrete is significantly lower than traditional concrete. The green concrete is used in the dam, bridges, buildings, columns, hut and much more...........

Title :: Steganography: A Comparative Survey Conducted on Digital Images
Country :: India
Authors :: Miftah Ul Uroos || Sukhvinder Kaur || Muheet Ahmed Butt
Page No. :: 52-61

Steganography refers to the data hiding. The main purpose of image steganography is to hide the data behind images. It means that it encodes the text in the form of image. The steganography is done when the communication takes place between sender and receiver. It is used to send the sensitive information with high security [15]. Nowadays in data transfer over the network, the security is the main issue concerned with this. Before the growth of the steganography, security of the data was the main concern of research for the researchers around the globe. The steganography method mostly depends on robustness, capacity, undetectability, invisibility of cover image and secret image. More the protection is done on these attributes more clarity is seen in the results............

Page No. :: 62-68

Cache is a smaller static memory, that is used in the systems to store data as well as instructions which are immediately required by the CPU. Keeping the objective of High Performance Computation(HPC), cache modeling has undergone different phases in the field of computation. In case of Multiprocessor Systems, there will be multiple levels of cache memory with in each of the cores of the system. This design approach has lead towards a new problem called Cache Coherency Problem. This problem is basically on maintaining consistency among the cache and memory contents, while several processors are allowed to read and manipulate a given data item. Directory based Cache Coherency Protocol is one of the solution for this problem and has been widely used in case of Distributed Systems...........

Title :: Mathematical models of disease transmission of Chikungunya: a report
Country :: India
Authors :: Indu Ratti
Page No. > :: 69-71

Chikungunya is an infection caused by the chikungunya virus (CHIKV). This virus is a member of the genus Alphavirus, and family Togaviridae. The virus is vectored by Aedes albopictus or Aedes aegypti mosquitoes and is a deadly disease. The disease is a reemerging arboviral which is epidemic in Africa and Asia. A massive outbreak happened on Reunion Island in 2006. Chikungunya was detected in the first outbreak in 1952 in Tanzania and has continued increasing until now in many tropical and sub-tropical countries. While the disease typically occurs in Africa and Asia, outbreaks have been reported in Europe and the Americas since the 2000s. The incubation pe- riod of the Chikungunya virus ranges from one to twelve days, and is most typically three to seven. The disease may be asymptomatic, but generally is not, as 72% to 97% of those infected will develop symptoms. Characteristic symptoms include

With the rise of technology and robots, involvement of humans in the technology and other processes are slowly diminishing. Instead humans are being replaced by robots. This process is termed to be Automation. In general system, people are being recruited to do repetitive tasks in an organisation like, gathering data, sorting the data as per the needs of the organisation, short-listing the candidates, sending number of mails to various organisations and individuals etc. So, to perform these repetitive tasks the cost incurred by the organisation is also very high............
