Cluster Formation Algorithm in WSNs to Optimize the Energy Consumption Using Self-Organizing Map

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are considered as one of the most prevailing technologies in today’s world due to the diversified applications. These applications are huge in the range such as environmental monitoring, health care, civil and military, disaster management to other surveillance systems. Minimization of energy is one of the most exciting tasks in WSNs as small sensor nodes are battery powered and deploy in remote environments. Clustering is one such imperative technique that can conserve energy more broadly, and evenly which makes the network operational for a longer period. This research paper aims at developing an energy-aware cluster-based routing protocol using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) which finds an optimal number of clusters and rotates the cluster head periodically to balance the energy consumption throughout the network. Typically, the proposed algorithm is developed based on Self-Organizing Map (SOM) to form the clusters, and the K-means algorithm is used to form different sizes of clusters. Finally, an optimal number of clusters is found that impacts the network load and balances the energy consumption. MATLAB is used as a simulation tool for experimental analysis. Simulation results prove that the proposed cluster-based routing protocol “LEACH-SOM” dominates the traditional LEACH routing protocol in terms of minimal energy consumption and makes the network active for long period.

CNN-Based Mobile Device Detection Using Still Images

Image forgery has been increased enormously due to the development of software and introduction of new cheaper digital devices like cameras and cellular phones. The introduction of new devices leads to inadvertent capturing of images. A lot of misuse of these devices led to the need for their identification. Source camera identification deals with the issue of identification of the mobile device using their camera through which image has been taken. This empowers the scientific agent to spot mobile device that has been used for capturing the specific image during the study. This is significant as this alphanumeric content is considered as a inaudible observer. In this proposed work, we are reviewing the various approaches for SCI which depend on classical machine learning algorithms feature extraction. Then, a CNN model is proposed for identification of mobile device using vision dataset. High accuracy of 92% is achieved for vision dataset.

E-FFTF: An Extended Framework for Flexible Fault Tolerance in Cloud

Fault tolerance provisioning is extremely important in cloud. Literature suggests that the existing frameworks are service provider centric. Being a pay-per-use model, fault tolerance in the cloud should be flexible with respect to the users’ requirement. Our previously proposed framework FFTF (Flexible Fault Tolerance Framework) is further extended to E-FFTF in the present paper to provide user transparency in the selection of service category based on the task completion deadline and slack time. E-FFTF successfully establishes task execution price savings through flexible fault tolerance. E-FFTF is proved to be beneficial for both the cloud service providers and service users as per the obtained experimental results.

Human Abnormal Activity Pattern Analysis in Diverse Background Surveillance Videos Using SVM and ResNet50 Model

Today, almost all the places are observed by surveillance cameras. The aim is to monitor the activities in and around, especially for abnormal activities. But it requires manual assistance to watch/monitor. However, manual inspection is a monotonous job, that reflects on information lost. It shows the importance of an automatic abnormal activity detection system. This is considered a difficult task because of object overlapping, light variation, clutter background, camera angle, presence of various activity, and posture variations. It manipulates the human actions in videos. Hence, it is challgening to recognize abnormal human actions. This work examines the concert of the classical SVM and ResNet50 model among four datasets: The ‘SAIAZ’ (S tudents A ctivities I n A cademic Z one)-Corridor, ‘SAIAZ’-Open space, Classroom Violence from YouTube (cc), and Mixed Background Dataset (MBD). The ‘SAIAZ’ was created by student volunteers of our Institution, and MBD is a collection of selected frames from various videos. Abnormal actions like slapping, punching, kicking, running, and fighting is commonly extant in these datasets. Here, MBD is assumed to adopt various real-world situations. The SVM achieved the classification accuracy of 85%, 92%, 60%, and 44% on SAIAZ-Corridor, SAIAZ-Open space, Classroom Violence, MBD respectively. The ResNet50 achieved significant improvements in all the given datasets.

RT-GATE: Concept of Micro Level Polarization in QCA

Quantum-dot Cellular Automata is an evaluation paradigm in which transistors are not used and viable candidate for replacing the CMOS based technology. QCA is one of the boosting nanotechnology devices with the aim to replace the CMOS technology. QCA is implemented by utilizing the tunneling of the electrons with the given potential within the quantum cell. We made an attempt to suggest a multiplexer architecture in QCA using micro-level polarization. The proposed multiplexer design saves 16.67% of effective area compared to the best designs reported till date. In this paper, new designs of universal gates are proposed. The proposed NOR and NAND gates requires less number of quantum cells which results in less effective area compared to the conventional majority gate based designs. By using these micro-level polarized gates, the multiplexer which is proposed in this paper is implemented. The proposed multiplexer is designed and simulated by QCA Designer.

Comparative Performance Analysis of Tanh-Apodized Fiber Bragg Grating and Gaussian-Apodized Fiber Bragg Grating as Hybrid Dispersion Compensation Model

Fiber optic systems are used for the prolonged reach transmission systems, but by increasing the bit rate which is the main requirement of the current time, dispersion gets arisen which results in intersymbol interference. Compensation of dispersion to improve the transmission capability of the fiber optic system provides a vast field for research. From the literature survey done, use of Dispersion compensation fiber has been found as the most reliable method for compensating the dispersion, but it becomes expensive as the length of Dispersion compensation fiber is increased for long distance transmission. The Fiber Bragg Grating is also used as a dispersion compensation module as reported in previous works but has been found inefficient method. However, the Performance of the Fiber Bragg Grating can be enhanced by adapting optimum Chirping technique and Apodization profile. From the previous reported works, Tanh-Apodized Fiber Bragg grating and Gaussian-Apodized Fiber Bragg grating are found to have optimum performance characteristics in terms of side lobe suppression and maximum reflectivity, which motivates us to analyze the respective Fiber Bragg Gratings for compensating the dispersion at various chirping techniques and variable grating lengths. In this work, Tanh-Apodized Fiber Bragg grating and Gaussian-Apodized Fiber Bragg grating are analyzed and simulated in various chirping techniques individually, as well as along with the Dispersion compensation fiber, in the hybrid model of dispersion compensation for a 100 km long optical fiber link at the data rate of 10Gbps. The simulation software used is optisystem. Also, the grating length has been varied and the different performance characteristics like Q-factor, BER, and Eye diagram are analyzed and compared. It has been observed that the Gaussian-Apodized quadratic-chirped Fiber Bragg Grating at the grating length of 26.6 mm along with the 11 km long Dispersion compensation fiber makes the cheaper dispersion compensation module with the finest performance.

Performance Comparison of Adaptive Mobility Management Scheme with IEEE 802.11s to Handle Internet Traffic

Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is one type of mobile ad hoc network. So, if there is a link breakage, it can heal and reorganize the network by itself. Portals, Mesh Gates and Access Points, Stations (STAs) and external station (STA) are main components of WMN. Portals are used to connect the network to the internet. STAs are the nodes through which routing of packets take place. External STAs are the users of WMN. Mesh Gates and Access Points are the stations which route the packets and also act as Access Points for the external STAs. In case of WMN, IEEE 802.11 s is the standard. When the external STA moves in the WMN, it goes out of coverage of a Mesh Gate and Access Point and enters into the coverage of another one. Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP), routing protocol of IEEE 802.11s, does not support external Station’s (STA’s) mobility. To integrate mobility, Adaptive mobility management technique had been proposed. The scheme considers session and mobility activities of the external STA by taking into account its session-to-mobility ratio (SMR). Based on SMR value, it makes the decision about transmission of route management packets. This paper presents numerical analysis of adaptive mobility management scheme and HWMP. Simulation of both techniques are carried out using NS-2. Performance comparison shows that adaptive mobility management scheme outperforms HWMP. Moreover, a comparison between the numerical analysis and simulation results have also been performed. It has been observed that results in case of HWMP are very close.

Automatic Attendance Management System Using Face Detection and Face Recognition

Attendance plays a major role in every education system. Taking attendance of students manually can be a great burden for teachers. It may cause many problems like loss of time, repetition, incorrect markings, and difficulties in marking them. To avoid this, there is a need to design an automatic system that overcomes the issues with the traditional attendance system. There are many automatic methods available for this purpose like fingerprint systems, RFID systems, face recognition systems and iris recognition systems, etc. But among these Face Recognition proved to be more efficient. The main objective of this paper is to propose a model that captures images from videos, detect and recognize the faces, predict the recognized face, and then marks attendance. In this work, a basic step has been performed which uses fifteen classes from LFW Dataset and faces are detected, recognized, and then prediction is done on a randomly selected image from the used dataset. This system uses a combination of Multi Task Cascaded Neural Network (MTCNN) algorithm along with FaceNet that can be used to detect faces and extract facial features from images. SVM is used to predict the face of the person from the image. The proposed system obtains a classification accuracy of 99.177% for the training set and 100% on the test set. The accuracy, precision, recall, and F1-score are computed.

ESIT: An Enhanced Lightweight Algorithm for Secure Internet of Things

With the increasing use of sensors and intelligent devices, Internet of Things (IoT) becomes an important area of research to establish connectivity among connected devices. Traditional algorithms used for encryption are found to be highly complex and with higher number of rounds for encryption which is computationally expensive. In an IoT network, communicating nodes adapt fewer complex algorithms for maintaining security. Hence, lightweight security algorithms are used for this purpose. In this paper, we have proposed a method for encryption and decryption process called Enhanced Secure IoT (ESIT) of an image using shift (<< or > >) and bitwise binary modulo 2 (+2) operation for data transmission. It is a block cipher that accepts a 64-bit key which performs Left shift (<<) and (+2) function for encryption, and right shift (>>) and (+2) decryption. It is the normal bitwise left and right shift by removing the sequence of q-bits from the left and right side, respectively. The performance of the proposed method is established by correlation, entropy, and image histogram. Experimental evaluation on four available images clearly shows the advantages of the given approach.

A Novel Block Diagonalization Algorithm to Suppress Inter-user Interference in a Multi-user Mimo System

Diversity in MIMO applications tend to ameliorate the architecture of system for compensation with upgraded hardware and software requirements. Single-user MIMO systems allow one user to be serviced per transmission interval. This maximizes the throughput of a single user, but its disadvantage is that it does not take advantage of multi-user diversity. Multi-user MIMO systems (MU-MIMO) have become the main technique for meeting the requirements. In MU-MIMO, one of the biggest issues to deal with is eliminating co-channel interference. The block diagonalization (BD) is a linear precoding method used in broadcast channels of MU-MIMO that has been effective in removing multi-user interference (MUI), but is not computationally efficient. To counter this, we have developed a novel optimization algorithm (Bacterial Foraging Optimization), and implemented it with variation in the number of users and modulation orders. This paper exhibits the improvement in the diversity, and proves the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.

Big Data is used in a spacious, distinct set of information that is continuously evolving estimates. Excessively vast array of tools can be computed to reveal models, patterns, and relationships, exclusively linked to human attitudes and communication. Its applications are applied in a range of real-time applications such as agriculture, weather forecasting, healthcare, and water resource management. Each Big Data research-oriented process can provide the outcome of the prediction or forecasting process. Analyzing the quality of water is still so important to a human being, because human beings cannot live without water. Smart Cities have been growing in the recent period, but many rural development areas are not yet emerging and do not have a lot of facilities like a smart city, and these areas are affected by the chemical contaminations like Arsenic, Cadmium, and some heavy metals. In this research work, Prediction of Chemical contamination for Water Quality Assurance using ML-based Techniques is proposed. This article offers a brief overview of Machine Learning Algorithms such as Decision Tree, Support Vector Machine, Random Forest, Naïve bayes, K-Nearest Neighbor. These algorithms are used for classification and prediction using datasets to analyze which Algorithm provides the best Predicting Accuracy as seen in this paper.

Design and Performance Analysis of Two-Port Circularly Polarized MIMO Antenna for UWB Applications

It proposes and simulates a new Ultra-wide (UWB) Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) circular polarization (CP) antenna. The developed antenna’s configuration is uncomplicated and incorporates dual T-shaped feed ports at left and right edges to achieve both LHCP and RHCP at same frequency band. A wide circular slot with a hexagonal stub is created in the ground plane in order to achieve better bandwidth for the realization of UWB. The evolution measures of the antenna put forward are presented ahead in this research paper, and its parameters are designed to obtain the optimal return loss, isolation, polarization, and ARBW. Also, a parametric study is done on various types of materials chosen as substrate. The parametric study results, portrays that substrate with higher dielectric tends to give poor ARBW. Operating bandwidth (S11 <  = –10db) of the planned antenna is obtained to be 6.7 GHz (3.4 to 10.1 GHz). An isolation of more than 15 dB is also achieved. 3 dB ARBW is obtained in the extent of 3.5–5.5 GHz. Furthermore, the circular polarization features of the antenna proposed are favorable. The surface current and radiation patterns obtained illustrates the circular polarization. Both RHCP and LHCP are obtained at the same frequency in this proposed antenna design. This proposed antenna is a solution to orientation problems of transmitter and receiver, complicated designing, multipath fading, and weather penetration. The simulated antenna is a low profile, compact sized antenna simulated for UWB circular polarization and next generation applications.

Intelligent Traffic Control System for Emergency Vehicles

Traffic Control System has faced many issues, such as high waiting time, resulting in the emission of CO2 (carbon) gas, which results in environment degradation and the loss of crucial time for the emergency vehicles, which increases impatience in drivers, which could be one of the primary causes of increase in accidents. There is also a considerable delay in vehicles’ arrival time, particularly emergency vehicles that get stuck in the long queue. It is a matter of concern, as these vehicles are being categorized as priority vehicles, so their waiting time should be minimum. The current Traffic Control System does not use any specific algorithm to control the traffic for priority vehicles such as fire brigade, ambulance. These drawbacks can be resolved by replacing the existing Traffic Control System with a more intelligent Traffic Control System. In this work, we proposed an Intelligent Traffic Control System for Emergency Vehicles model (ITCSEV), which can identify the vehicles and separate them based on their types like “emergency,” “passenger.” It can change the duration and traffic signal accordingly. This model has been tested by us through a practical simulation using an open-source simulator, i.e., SUMO (Simulation of Urban MObility), on the map of India’s Gwalior city, which demonstrates the efficiency and reliability of the model.

Cooperative Agent-Based Location Validation for Vehicular Clouds

The evolution of Intelligent Technology Systems (ITS) has made possible the designing of vehicles with more sophisticated computing, communicating, and sensing capabilities. Vehicular Cloud (VC) magnifies these capabilities by cost-effectively sharing their resources. Location information about a node plays a prime role in many VC services which are based on the location of the user node. In this paper, we present a cooperative agent-based location verification framework for VC. Central Authority (CA), a trusted entity that coordinates the activities in VC, takes care of the location verification process with the help of special nodes known as verifier nodes. Verifier nodes are distributed in the network randomly and secretly. The presence of such nodes is known only to the CA, which makes it stronger in terms of security.

An Analytical Approach for Traffic Grooming Problems Using Waiting Probability in WDM Networks

Traffic grooming is the optimization of resources in a network. An efficient traffic grooming provides better resource utilization, enhanced performance at a lower cost. Traffic grooming has become very significant for all types of computer networks. As WDM (wavelength division multiplexing) networks are providing very high speed for a huge amount of data transfer, so traffic grooming is even more important for these networks. There are so many parameters that may be considered for traffic grooming. The waiting probability is one of the key parameters for traffic grooming. Waiting probability is a measurement of time spent by a call to get the required resources for further communication. We have proposed an efficient traffic grooming technique. This technique is based on waiting probability calculations. Waiting probability is calculated, and then traffic grooming problems are addressed based on the waiting probability calculations. Some of the other key network performance parameters such as the number of servers required, ideal path length for a source–destination pair, number of free wavelengths required, etc., are also analyzed. It is a low complexity technique for handling traffic grooming problems efficiently in telecommunication and call center management.

Flow-Based Detection and Mitigation of Low-Rate DDOS Attack in SDN Environment Using Machine Learning Techniques

Software Defined Networks (SDN) have become more efficient and popular by having effective controller. Centralized controller makes the decision to handle traffic in data plane by analyzing the entire network. In addition, handling network attack is equivalently complex for controllers. Low-rate Distributed Denial of Service (LR-DDoS) attack restricts legitimate users to access resources by sending unwanted and half-opened request towards the devices in data plane. Hence, it is vital to detect and mitigate LR-DDoS attack in its early stage because nature of attack is very similar to original request. The nature of this attack exhausts the network resources and leads to resource unavailability or delay while processing the legitimate requests. In this paper, we propose a flow-based detection and mitigation framework using machine learning models like Support Vector Machine (SVM), C4.5 Decision tree and Naïve Bayes as classifiers to detect LR-DDoS attack. From every traffic flow samples, we extract the essential features to detect attack. In mitigation phase, we handle the attack flow information and install the mitigation rules to avoid LR-DDoS attack from same source. Our experimental results show that SVM mechanism achieves better accuracy compared to C4.5 and Naïve Bayes techniques.

8-Bit Carry Look Ahead Adder Using MGDI Technique

High-performance and low power consumption are major factors that describe the significance of a design in VLSI. At low and ultra-low power applications, power consumption and logic delays are a fundamental problem. Nowadays, higher performance designs are built on the concept of computation units like ALU, where adders and multipliers are the essential components. To optimize low-power and high-performance applications, adders and multipliers need to be engineered to meet specifications such as speed and power dissipation. Using Modified Gate Diffusion Technique, this paper proposes a carry look-ahead adder (CLA). Compared with other adder models, the carry look ahead adder has much less propagation delay. The proposed adder is implemented on 90 nm technologies using the cadence environment. This paper's main objective is to use Modified Gate Diffusion Input (MGDI) Technology to develop and implement a CLA.

Improved Scientific Workflow Scheduling Algorithm with Distributed Heft Ranking and TBW Scheduling Method

Scheduling is a process that manages the workflow tasks during execution on different resources. Virtual infrastructure is a dynamic mapping of system resources to applications in order to maximize its utilization. In today's technological world, cloud has taken a long stride on the success towards maximum throughput as well as highest qualitative services to its consumers. Yet, approaches for maximizing the utilization of cloud resources are at peak demand. Each cloud service provider focuses on maximum utilization with minimum consumption of cloud resources, although managing and providing computational resources to maximum number of users and to execute such huge applications is a challenging one. In this paper, a scheduling algorithm with name TBW (Tabu Bayesian Whale Optimization) has been proposed. Basically, the algorithm is used to target the improvement in scheduling of scientific workflows. The complete framework has firstly used a ranking algorithm named distributed HEFT ranking and then applied TBW algorithm on ranked tasks of input workflows.

TBW is using tabu method on workflow tasks for fast local search in cloud system, and Bayesian Optimization is used to find out best possible combinations of resources where tasks are mapped and then whale optimization maps the tasks on the resources in a smart way. In the whole process, total execution time and cost parameters are minimized under deadline constraints.

Cloud-Based Parkinson Disease Prediction System Using Expanded Cat Swarm Optimization

Parkinson disease is identified as the second most severe neurodegenerative disorder that affects the nerve system of people. This disease could mainly affect the walking, speech, and vision of patients followed by body nervousness, handwriting, harsh voice quality, depression, and sleeping problems. The proposed research study focuses on early detection and diagnosis of disease from the accelerometer sensor-based data by evaluating the deviations present in patient’s motor symptoms. A cloud-based Parkinson disease prediction system is developed for a clinical decision-making process that helps the doctor to diagnose the Parkinson-influenced patient from a remote place. Gait parameters of the patient were extracted along to provide input vectors to the classifier model for onboard Parkinson disease prediction and diagnosis. An effective expanded cat swarm optimization (ECSO)-based feature selection technique is explored to overcome the problem of dataset dimensionality. It could select the most appropriate features from the patient dataset according to a logically inspired evolutionary algorithm. Using this feature selection technique in the k-Nearest Neighbor (k-NN), classifier model could significantly improve the disease prediction accuracy, and also minimizes the disease prediction time against the existing classifier models.

Improving the Protection of Wireless Sensor Network Using a Black Hole Optimization Algorithm (BHOA) on Best Feasible Node Capture Attack

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is an area of research that connects mutually huge subareas of communication, routing, security, and attacks. WSN is conceivably the most susceptible network to node capture attack due to its dynamic nature in huge area. A node capture attack is introduced by seizing few nodes through an intruder to capture entire WSN by extracting the useful information like keys, routing mechanism, and data from WSN. To improve the protection of WSN, we proposed a Black Hole Optimization Algorithm (BHOA) on best feasible node capture attack to discover the optimal nodes having superior possibility of attack. The BHOA is applied on a function Vertex Participation. The experiment is performed on MATLAB 2019a environment, and the results show the better quality, efficiency of BHOA against MA, OGA, MREA, GA, and FFOA based on traffic compromised ratio, power consumption cost, and attacking time.

Quality Assisted Spectrum Allocation in Cognitive NOMA Networks

Future communications are developed with new communication standards for multi access technologies, where spectrum sharing and Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) are the two latest approaches. To transfer the data from one end to another end through this wireless communication medium interference take place, which affects the total system performance. To minimize the interference in these communications the efficient spectrum sharing technique was developed. Cooperative relaying in NOMA system with spectrum sharing using threshold modeling were proposed in past. To improve the resource allocation in NOMA with cooperative relaying, instantaneous signal to noise ratio were used in obtaining higher outage throughput in a spectrum sharing cognitive radio-NOMA (CR-NOMA) system. In the previous methods constant thresholding is considered in the energy detection model and the quality of signaling is not observed, which results in lower throughput. In this work, a Quality Assisted Spectrum Allocation (QASA) based on loss probability is proposed and a dynamic threshold modeling is suggested for spectrum sensing under dynamic channel condition. Here the Rayleigh and Rician fading models are considered and used the Lagrange mathematical concept to calculate the bit error and to minimize the distortion. The throughput of the proposed work performs well when compared with the conventional method of Simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT).

Proficient Dual Secure Multi Keyword Search by Top-K Ranking Based on Synonym Index and DNN in Untrusted Cloud

Recent developments in cloud services have increased number of data owners to store their encrypted data in the cloud whereas equal or more data users participate to retrieve data. Secure retrieval of relevant data has become a challenging issue. In this paper, a secure ranking based multi-keyword search using semantic index is being developed. Initially, owner builds an index file by semantic representation of keyword. Security key is provided by Trusted Authority (TA) for decrypting the obtained results at the user side. TA manages dual security processes such as managing secret keys and issuing security devices to the data users. User query reaches proxy server, and it checks whether any frequent keyword matches with given query using Boolean Search. If it does not match, query enters into the main server which stores all document and index files to obtain relevant result using Deep Learning Neural Network. In deep learning neural network, the query is processed with vector space model to retrieve the relevant documents. Finally, user decrypts the relevant results obtained from deep neural network. The experimental result shows that our proposed model provides better performance in terms of recall, ranking privacy, precision, and searching time.

Investigation of CNN-Based Acoustic Modeling for Continuous Hindi Speech Recognition

Recently, Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) gains more popularity over hybrid Deep Neural Network (DNN) and Hidden Markov Model (HMM) based acoustic models. CNN has the ability to deal with speech signals and it makes appropriate choice for the Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) system. The sparse connectivity, weight sharing, and pooling allow CNN to handle a slight position shift in the frequency domain. This property helps to manage speaker and environment variations. CNN works well for speech recognition, but it was not appropriately examined for the Hindi speech recognition system. The activation functions and optimization techniques play a vital role in CNN to achieve high accuracy. In this work, we investigate the impact of various activation functions and optimization techniques in the Hindi-ASR system. All the experiments were performed on the Hindi speech dataset developed by TIFR, with the help of the Kaldi and Pytorch-Kaldi toolkit. The experiment results show that the ELU activation function with Rmsprop optimization techniques gives the best Word Error Rate (WER) 14.56%.

An Anatomization of FPGA-Based Neural Networks

Ongoing advancements in the improvement of multilayer convolutional neural organizations have brought about upgrades in the precision of important recognition jobs, for example, huge category picture classification and cutting-edge automated recognition of speech. Custom hardware accelerators are crucial in improving their performance, given the large computational demands of Convolution Neural Networks (CNN). The Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) reconfigurability, computational abilities, and high energy efficacy makes it a propitious CNN hardware acceleration tool. CNN have demonstrated their value in picture identification and recognition applications; nonetheless, they require high CPU use and memory transmission capacity tasks that cause general CPUs to neglect to accomplish wanted execution levels. Consequently, to increase the throughput of CNNs, hardware accelerators using Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), FPGAs, and Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) have been employed to improve CNN performance. To bring out their synonymity and dissimilarity, we group the works into many groups. Thus, it is anticipated that this review will lead to the upcoming development of successful hardware accelerators and be beneficial to researchers in deep learning.
