Comparative Analysis of Image Segmentation Techniques for Real Field Crop Images

Nowadays various applications are available for plant disease identification using images. Early-stage disease identification can reduce losses and cost in cultivation. Efficient image segmentation is required to improve the performance of plant disease identification. Selecting appropriate segmentation techniques to extract an accurate object of interest while preserving original image properties is a challenging task. This paper presents the principle of image segmentation covering different techniques from traditional thresholding to the latest convolutional neural network-based approach. We reviewed the selected paper based on image segmentation and crop disease identification. Various algorithms are grouped based on the working principles like edge-based, region-based, and combining both properties. Performance evaluation of these algorithms was carried out using factors like time required, accuracy, and similarity to the original image. Holistic image segmentation based on convolutional neural network, K means clustering, etc. algorithms applied to real field crop images. The grab cut algorithm proves very useful for real field crop image segmentation as it preserves original image properties. Combining region and boundary-based techniques and automating segmentation need to be explored in future research work.

Pose Driven Deep Appearance Feature Learning for Action Classification

In this work, we propose to learn the fusion process between the dominant skeletal features and the RGB features. This is in contrast to the previous fusion methods that simply fused these multimodal features, without learning the fusion process to exploit the semantic relationship between them. Here, we propose a gated feature fusion (GFF) of multimodal feature data which provides attention to the appearance stream of RGB data using the temporal skeletal data. Initially, the features from RGB and skeletal frames are extracted using CNN models. Subsequently, the gated fusion network fuses the features from pose and appearance domains using temporal convolutions which are further combined into a latent subspace. Finally, the latent subspace features are classified using fully connected layers with the combined loss embeddings. The proposed architecture has performed better than the state-of-the-art models on RGB-D action datasets.

Privacy Preserving on Delay-Tolerant Networks

Common arguments related to Delay-Tolerant Networks often focus on routing performances, energy consumption or quality of service. Despite the fact that privacy-related issues are generally considered critical, they do not arouse the same interest as the other reported aspects. For instance, when the carried information contains sensitive data, it should be protected from malicious intent. Nevertheless, most of the protocols used seem to ignore this, assuming others should take charge of the task. The aim of this document is to propose an innovative routing protocol, able to provide privacy preservation with a delivery performance comparable to the current most widely used protocols by taking inspiration from a feature borrowed from human nature, the vocal timbre.

Smart Attendance Monitoring System for Online Classes Using Facial Recognition

One of the most important activities in a classroom is the process of marking attendance. It is a universally accepted process to measure the punctuality of a student. However, there are certain drawbacks to the existing system where a teacher has to physically mark, whether a student is present or not. The main drawbacks of taking physical attendance are time-consuming while marking the attendance and there is a possibility of proxy attendance. The existing systems like fingerprint scanning and RFID are not completely proof worthy and can be easily tampered with. Keeping this view in mind, we implement a face recognition algorithm to mark the attendance of a student. The main aim of the proposed system is to make the process efficient and save time. The proposed system recognizes the student’s face from the images stored in the database and updates it in the attendance sheet automatically. To implement the online attendance system, we use popular algorithms like Haar-Cascade and HOG algorithm which is provided by the face_recognition library. As most of the face recognition algorithms work on 2D frames, they are unable to overcome the problem of spoofing, where the person’s face gets recognized from a photo. This problem of spoofing is dealt with the help of the eye-blinking detection CNN model and trained using Keras. The proposed system uses OpenCV and Machine Learning techniques to perform the complete process.

Security Issues in the Routing Protocols of Flying Ad Hoc Networks

Flying ad hoc networks (FANETs) empowered with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are a subset of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET). In a FANET, a swarm of mini-UAVs is deployed as per application scenarios to communicate critical data to ground control stations (GCSs). Owing to their distinct characteristics and unique features, FANETs pose numerous challenges making secure communication a cumbersome task. Security issues in FANETs may exist either from intrinsic design flaws or due to any extrinsic attacks performed by an attacker. Before designing the secure routing protocols, all existing security issues related to FANETs must be explored in detail. This paper explores security attacks feasible on FANETs’ routing protocols that may occur either due to network design flaws or perpetrated by a malicious attacker to gain unauthorized access to the network. The potential countermeasures against the possible routing attacks are also highlighted.

A Novel Access Control Mechanism Using Trustworthiness of Nodes in a Cross-Domain Cloud Environment

The phenomenal growth of cloud computing over the last few years resulted in the need of developing new mechanisms to make the system more secure in every possible manner. When it comes to establishing access control mechanisms in a cross-domain virtual organization-based cloud environment, the situation becomes more cumbersome due to the lack of proper standardized solutions. In this paper, an approach is being defined which combines role-based access control policy with the establishment of trust among the various nodes of different domains which are a part of the cloud environment. Several parameters are considered to calculate the trust values of different entities based on the concept of a collection of feedback from neighbor nodes. A statistical mechanism is also introduced to prevent any biased feedback. If the total trust value exceeds some pre-defined threshold, then only it is considered for the transaction; otherwise, it is not considered. The resource provider as well as the initiator can gather the feedback, and the trust is calculated from both ends in this model. We assess the trust of both user as well as the resource provider so that a proper access control mechanism can be established.

Siamese Bi-Directional Gated Recurrent Units Network for Generating Reciprocal Recommendations in Online Job Recommendation

Unlike conventional Recommender Systems (RS) techniques where items are recommended to users, in Reciprocal Recommender Systems users become the items that are recommended to other users. Hence the generated recommendations should be accepted by both the service user (receiver of the recommendation) and the recommended user. In this paper, we propose SBiGRU: Siamese Bidirectional Gated Recurrent Units-based model to generate reciprocal recommendations in the online Job Recommendation by computing the semantic similarity between service users and recommended users. It can recommend reciprocal recommendations to any recruiter and job seeker even in the absence of interaction data that may not be available due to data privacy being exercised by concerned parties. The performance of SBiGRU is compared with existing state-of-the-art approaches and two Recurrent Neural Network variations viz. Bidirectional LSTM (SBiLSTM) and unidirectional LSTM (SLSTM).

Comparative Analysis of Image Denoising Using Different Filters

The quality of images is often hampered due to the presence of noise. There are different image denoising techniques that can be used. One such technique is the use of filters. Filters are used for enhancing the appearance of images by eliminating unwanted information. We provide a detailed comparative analysis of different filters that can be used in denoising images containing various noises, in this paper. Four different noises, Speckle, Salt and Pepper, Gaussian, and Poisson, have been considered and different filters like Bilateral, Wiener, Mean, and Median have been applied to images containing each of them. The different filtered output images have been compared with the original image using their structural similarity index. Through observation and experimentation, new combinations of filters like Multiple Mean and Median-Mean have been introduced. The processing time has been calculated to decide upon the performance of different filters. A conclusion has been drawn as to which filter has to be used for denoising images containing different noises.

Analysis of Different Interference Mitigation Techniques Based on Bit Error Rate (BER) in 5G

5G technology is a revolutionized technology of wireless communication system, and it changes the way of communication as used before. It makes it easier for the user to communicate with any devices linked to the 5G network. 5G can provide a bigger data rate, low latency, low power consumption, higher energy efficiency, enhanced quality of experience (QoE), higher throughput, etc. One of the important technologies is the massive MIMO system, which is used in the 5G network to provide an effective and high-quality signal to each and every individual user. 5G is a highly efficient network and it increases the network capacity and spectral efficiency at an extreme level. The 5G network can connect a huge number of user equipment or appliances, which transmit different signals that cause high interference in the network. So Interference becomes a major issue in this network. There are various types of interferences in this network like inter-cell and intra-cell interference, inter-symbol interference, co-channel interference, interference from various connected machines, and interference from other connected devices. For resolving this issue, different linear and non-linear equalizers are used. In this work, the performance analysis of a network with massive MIMO system is done by using zero forcing, minimum mean square error (MMSE), and maximum likelihood (ML) equalizer algorithm, where zero forcing and MMSE are linear equalizers while ML being a non-linear equalizer. The BER analysis is accomplished under the Rayleigh channel using 4-QAM modulation. The present work has been analyzed and implemented using MATLAB R2020b. The simulation results show that the BER value is lesser for higher SNR value, and the ML equalizer gives the lesser BER among these three.

An Adaptive Distance-Based Interest Propagation Protocol for Vehicular Named Data Networks

The particular challenge in vehicular environments compared to other wireless networks are the rapidly changing topology and intermittent connectivity. The Named Data Networking (NDN) model has recently been proposed to offer new perspectives to meet the challenging demands of vehicular environments. The NDN exploits content name and eliminates the need to establish and maintain an end-to-end connection, which enables efficient communication in highly mobile vehicular environments. When combined with the VANET environment, the basic method of forwarding interest packets is flooding. However, this approach will lead to the broadcast storm problem which reduces the performance of VANETs’ applications. In this work, we suggest an adaptive distance-based protocol for vehicular named data networks to mitigate the interest in broadcast storm. In this distance-based approach, each vehicle dynamically computes locally an adaptive waiting timer based on the distance between the current receiver and its neighboring vehicles. The simulation result indicates that the proposed works outperform the rapid traffic information dissemination both in terms of interest satisfaction ratio and end-to-end delay.

Comparative Study of Enhanced Round Robin Algorithms with Drrha and Other Metaheuristic Algorithms

CPU scheduling has a substantial influence on system resource usage and overall performance. Scheduling Algorithms are a technique for reducing CPU resource deprivation while simultaneously maintaining fairness among the numerous programs that utilize the resources. Round Robin is a preemptive scheduling method that significantly improves response time by restricting each operation to a certain length of time known as the Time Quantum. Various efforts have been made to calculate a time quantum value to optimize these Round Robin algorithm parameters. However, this gain in response time comes at the expense of turnaround and waiting time. In this paper, we compare the conventional Round Robin CPU scheduling algorithm to updated Round Robin algorithms such as DRRHA, as well as our suggested approaches termed MDRRHA and NDRRHA, which seek to reduce process waiting time. The Quantum value for MDRRHA and NDRRHA is derived dynamically using the arithmetic mean and the normal distribution of execution time values of tasks, respectively.

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) and DBSCAN Clustering for SARs-CoV Challenges: Complete Deep Learning Solution

Early diagnosis of Covid-19 is a challenging task requiring congruous clinical medical imaging, which is a time- consuming process and suffers from accuracy problems due to variations between different laboratory results. The clinical symptoms of Covid-19 show resemblance with acute respiratory distress syndrome. The major clinical symptoms linked with this disease are fever, cough, headache, migraine, and breathlessness. Despite tremendous research going on, knowing the way of transmission and its early detection remains a mystery. There is no treatment as of now for this virus, so a lot of unprecedented containment and mitigation policies such as closure of business places, schools, and colleges, marriage gathering restrictions, transport restrictions, and social distancing are being employed. These policies are able to limit the transmission of covid-19, but are not always feasible. Steps must be taken to slow down the spread of this virus and make an early diagnosis of infection to save lives. This paper gives a clear idea about the introduction of Covid-19, its symptoms, post covid-19 symptoms, challenges posed by the virus, and proposed solutions for its early detection to slow down its rate of transmission. Methods: The proposed solution includes a clustering algorithm for massive contact tracing that helps to slow down the transmission rate, and automatic virus detection and classification network known as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) based upon deep domain transfer learning. Results: The pre-trained model VGG-19 is used and the hyperparameters of the model are tuned as per classification requirement by exploiting the concept of deep domain transfer learning. The model is implemented on publicly available chest radiography images and the system classifies the dataset as covid and non-covid images. The CNN achieves $$97.35\%$$ 97.35 % accuracy outperforming all the existing methods. A new concept of employing nanocoating and nano sprays is also introduced in the paper. Conclusion: To discuss various critical challenges posed by Covid-19. Addressing those issues and proposing various solutions. Proposing clustering machine learning algorithm for massive contact tracing. Developing automatic covid-19 detection and classification system based upon automatic feature detection. Providing solutions based upon nanotechnology to slow down transmission.

Computational Psychometrics Analysis of Learners’ Motivational Level Using Different Parameters

Learning is an ongoing process irrespective of age, gender, and geographical location of acquiring new understanding, knowledge, behaviours, skills, values, attitudes, and preferences. Formative assessment methods have emerged and evolved to integrate elements from learning, evaluation, and education models. Not only is it critical to understand a learner's skills and how to improve and enhance them, but we also need to consider where the learner is going; we need to consider navigational patterns. The extended learning and assessment system, a paradigm for doing research, captures this entire view of learning and evaluation systems. The function of computational psychometrics in facilitating the translation from raw data to concepts is central to this paradigm. In this research study, several factors are considered for psychometric analysis of different kinds of learners, and based on a motivational level, many interesting conclusions have been drawn and presented in the result section at the end of the paper.

Brain Tumor Segmentation

DIP for Medicinal examination is considered as a vital topic for artificial intelligent system. We are introducing a hybrid technique combining K-means and Fuzzy C-means clustering algorithms for determining whether a brain MR Imaging scan consists tumor or not. As K-means is a hard clustering algorithm so it is used for initial segmentation via appropriate selection of the image. And after that FCM is used to provide membership to each centroid through the distance between the cluster centroid and cluster data point, prior to obtaining best result. This distance relies upon various factors, i.e., contrast, saturation, structure, brightness, and homogeneity of the image. Based upon the provided memberships by FCM technique and automated cluster selection a sharp segmented image is obtained. This modified hybrid (hard and soft clustering) approach reduces equipment and operator error. The outcome unveils that such an approach is remarkably encouraging.

Prediction of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) Using Deep Learning

The further proliferation of age-related eye diseases, mainly age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), is increasing the load on healthcare providers. Although ARMD does not lead to complete blindness, the disease can make it difficult for people to perform daily activities such as driving, reading, writing, cooking, etc. The unavailability of any cure for ARMD, necessitates timely actions of detecting the first symptoms of eye conditions as well as following appropriate treatment options to minimize further damage. Some of the current techniques used to detect and monitor ARMD include the Amsler’s Grid, Near Vision Chart, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), etc. which are generally performed on paper in hospitals or clinics. This proposed solution facilitates prediction of age-related macular degeneration in patients using data collected through a Mobile application. The proposed system includes the digitization of paper-based tests as well as a novel approach for prediction of ARMD through Deep Learning. The system eliminates the need to visit a clinic and can be used by citizens from home at their discretion. The high prediction accuracy obtained while real-time testing and prediction of ARMD validates the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Humans can exhibit many emotions during the day, detection of these emotions can play a very important role in technology-based human–computer interaction (HCI). To achieve the detection of emotions, there are many algorithms, based on machine learning and ANN. In the proposed methodology, we are developing an algorithm, using deep learning neural network consisting of two hidden layers, which can detect various human emotions as happy, sad, angry, neutral, sad and surprise. Using the predictive analysis, the algorithm can predict these various emotions. Kaggle datasets is used for training and validating proposed algorithm. The total data set contained 35,340 data items of which 80% is used for training of the algorithm and the remaining 20% is used for testing of the algorithm. After implementing the algorithm of ReLu and SoftMax using Deep Learning neural network, results show that the model is successfully able to predict the emotion with 90% accuracy, in a variety of emotions with different types of faces. Comparison of results with other conventional approaches toward the facial expressions shows that our model does the prediction quite efficiently by extracting the data from the testing set and converting it into a JSON format which can be used as a classifier latter on without pre-processing the image data set again and again which saves both the time and computational power.

Psychological Impact of Using Smartphone on Four- to Ten-Year-Old Children

Children now start using smartphone at an early age and use different types of apps for increasing hours as they grow up. The aim of the present study was to assess the psychological impact of using smartphone on children and, in particular, determine if using smartphone for long hours leads to difficult behavior in children. We conducted the study on 130 children aged between four and ten years. We developed an app to collect usage statistics of smartphones. We asked parents to install the app on the smartphone they lend to their children and use it for at least 30 days. We also asked them to fill in the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire for their children. We found that 94 (72%) of the children used smartphone for one hour or more per day. Using smartphone for one hour or more per day was found to be associated with significantly (P < 0.05) higher conduct problems scale score and hyperactivity scale score among the children but had no significant effect on their emotional problems scale score and peer relationship problems scale score. Excessive use of smartphone has negative psychological effects and we recommend the use of smartphone be strictly restricted to one hour per day for children up to the age of ten years.

Simulation and Analysis of Test Case Prioritization Using Fuzzy Logic

Assertions are frequently used to look for logically impossible scenarios, and they're an important tool for developing, testing, and maintaining software. In order to avoid a software crash or failure, software developers add assertions to their code in locations where mistakes are likely to occur. All software, even asserted software, must be updated and maintained over time. Assertions may need to be changed as well, depending on the type of change made to the upgraded program. New claims can be made in the software's upgraded version, but old claims can be kept. During regression testing of systems that utilize assertions that leverage fuzzy logic, a new approach for prioritizing test cases is described in this work for the first time. Prioritizing test cases based on fault severity, fault detection, and assessment time are the primary goals of this method. The effectiveness of a particular test case in breaching an assertion is evaluated using fuzzy logic techniques based on the history of the test cases based on the above-mentioned criteria in previous testing operations to generate the proposed solution. The proposed system was tested by simulating it in the MATLAB SIMULINK environment and measuring its performance.

An Empirical Analysis of Fixed and Fuzzy-Based Traffic Congestion Control System

Traffic Management in an optimum way seems to be an effective way to reduce traffic congestion over various intersections. The core idea behind this optimality is to provide green time for dynamic traffic flow changes in urban areas. As the vehicles are waiting in the queue during red light time, an effective control system is required to reduce the waiting time. In a fixed time/conventional traffic system green light is turned on for a fixed time in each direction. Such systems are generally pre-programmed or the fixed delay in each direction can be controlled manually and hence requires a human operator to make the desired changes, as and when required. Also, a human operator will change this for a limited number of times in a day. However, this process can be automated by using fuzzy control systems. In the fuzzy controlled traffic systems, the on time of green light is adjusted (during each transition of traffic lights) depending on the different input parameters such as Queue length, Time of the day, Arrival Rate and Waiting Time, etc. Adjustment in number of transitions indicates the flexibility/adaptive nature of fuzzy controlled system. In this paper, the novelty in the field of traffic engineering is introduced by computing the relative significance of identified parameters. Various fuzzy models with three input parameters, i.e., Arrival rate, Queue length and Waiting Time are implemented and comparative performance analysis of the seven fuzzy models hence obtained, is presented. The performance of all the implemented fuzzy models is also compared with the conventional traffic system. A traffic simulator is implemented in MATLAB to generate the real-time traffic conditions, each system is simulated and compared for all possible combinations of traffic density. Fuzzy model with two input parameters Queue length and Waiting Time outperforms the other systems and provides 23.69% average improvement in the delay observed by the vehicles waiting in the queue.

Online Exam Monitoring Application as Microservices

With the unexpected rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, a vast majority of organizations and institutions have shifted to online modes of communication, especially educational institutions. Many hurdles popped up in due course of time, preventing the successful conduction of online examinations. Today, there is an application for each and everything and the number of users is steeply escalating. With such high rising demands and new necessities, it has become quite important to make sure the applications are easily available anytime and anywhere. Ensuring minimum downtime, frequent updates without any disruptions, and making it easily available for both developers and consumers are must-haves now. Satisfying these requirements over a monolithic architecture is not assured, hence, the microservices architecture is adopted, thus opening the door for new possibilities. This being the foundation of this project, an amalgam of how the web application we used is divided into microservices, containerization of each of them followed by pod deployment and finally using Kubernetes for service exposing and orchestration is presented in this paper. In short, an online exam monitoring system that can identify any abnormal behavior by test takers while being capable of tackling varying traffic loads is fault-tolerant and handles disaster recovery.

Impact of Soil Degradation on the Durability of Roads and Bridges in Middle Guinea: Synthetic Geoscientific Approach and Geotechnical Perspectives

Several bridges and roads have deteriorated and become impassable in Guinea in recent decades. Because? The degradation of their supports (soils) and the crucial lack of basic geoscientific studies of their direct environments. We have set ourselves the objective of analyzing this problem in Middle Guinea and providing concrete solutions. The results of our social and state surveys (climatic, hydrological and geological services) show seasonal damage due to downpours. Our geoscientific studies reveal pedogenetic products (chemical and mineralogical) forming soil horizons (pasty and slippery on the surface), very sensitive to hydrolysis which modifies their states of stability (formation) and produce results which prevent the masters of ‘works on the realities that await them and guide them to a safe approach. Our geotechnical outlook provides concrete/direct measures combating this scourge on the Labé-Mali axis; at the Linsan and Mamou-Linsan deviations, thus facilitating socio-professional journeys which have become difficult.

Analysis of COVID-19 Vaccination Sentiments Using a Voting Hybrid Machine Learning Approach

The coronavirus was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, and a vaccine for it was developed and is currently being used to vaccinate people all over the world. From the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccination program, many people have refused to accept the vaccine due to widespread misconceptions and propaganda concerning the COVID-19 virus itself, whether it is real or not, and the vaccination program as well. All these misconceptions and propaganda have been spreading through word of mouth (verbal) discussion among citizens. In this study, a hybrid machine learning approach was proposed with the help of natural language processing to build a sentiment classification and prediction system using the data collected from the public regarding their opinions on the COVID-19 vaccination program. The data was collected through the Google Form. The evaluation metrics used to measure the effectiveness of the proposed work were accuracy, precision, recall, and f-measure. Various machine learning algorithms were used for the implementation. Two algorithms, namely Support Vector Machine and Bagging Classifier, outperformed the remaining algorithms with the same accuracy and precision scores of 75%, respectively. The two algorithms were considered for the voting, which served as the final hybrid machine learning model for the sentiment classification and prediction tasks. The voting classifier works by predicting an output voting class based on the highest likelihood of the combined models, which were Bagging Classifier and SVM. Using the voting classifier, accuracy, and precision scores of 75% and 75% were also obtained.

Performance Enhancement of Motor Imagery EEG Signals Using Feature Extraction and Classification with Time Domain Statistical Parameters of Brain–Computer Interface

According to a current evolving real paradigm in neuroscience innovation, humans may use brain impulses to interact with, effect, or transform their environment. People may use the growing brain–computer interface (BCI) technology to control, communicate, and monitor their objects by utilizing or interacting with assistive devices. BCI technology will surely rely on improved signal capture and clear validation of actual research and delivery models in the future, which will be connected to the dependability issue. For the BCI system to work better, an appropriate signal processing approach must be used that makes it easier to collect physiological data and a higher classifier suitable for the specificity of the system. We offer a concise overview of several signal processing strategies for improving BCI focus. A supervised classification method is utilized to improve the support vector machine in order to recognize and categorize EEG data. The EEG data’s temporal domain properties are retrieved and input as feature vectors into the SVM, which are subsequently utilized for classification and identification. The algorithm’s exploration capabilities and convergence time have both improved, as shown by statistical analysis of the data. The SVM parameters are then optimized using this information. The approaches for feature extraction and classification are covered in this study. This outcome represents a 2–5% improvement over the previous technique. EEG (Electroencephalography) is a complex bio-electrical signal. Researchers may uncover useful physiological information if they do a thorough examination of this data. The challenges that BCI data processing designers face are discussed here, along with some drawings of possible existing and prospective solutions. We create ways to extract and identify specific traits from the standpoint of BCI systems, and we conclude with a thorough conclusion and interpretation.

A Novel Similarity Measure for Context-Based Search Engine

Analyzing the multiple relevant documents returned in reply to an end-user request by an information retrieval system is challenging. It is very time-consuming and less efficient to find analogous web pages without applying the clustering. Clustering of web pages arranges a large number of web documents into relevant small clustered groups. In this paper, a novel similitude degree computation technique is proposed to provide the web documents related to the context in which multiple related web documents are the members of the same cluster. The clustering module results in web documents’ arrangement with their associated topic and corresponding computed similitude or similarity score. This provides the user clusters containing equivalent web documents related to the issue of desire. This context-based grouping of web documents reduces the time taken for searching relevant data and improves the results in response to a user request. Moreover, the comparison and analysis of the proposed technique are done with different existing similarity measures on the basis of performance metrics purity and entropy. It has shown the proposed scheme provides better results to the user.

A Survey on the Security Issues of Industrial Control System Infrastructure Using Different Protocols

Control and monitoring of essential infrastructures like nuclear plants, power generation and distribution plants, oil and gas, and many more facilities are handled by industrial control systems (ICS). The real-time response, high-performance computing compatibility as well as security. There are a number of protocols in place to assure the safety and security of the operations in question. ICS protocols phasing so many problems due to their high demand in real time. ICS has adopted Internet-based technologies and most communication protocols have been rewritten to work over IP as a result of the increased access to the Internet world for business purposes. In contrast to typical IT systems, the ICS components and communication protocols were vulnerable to cyber-attacks because of their openness.

Comprehensive Prediction Model for Player Selection in FIFA Manager Mode

Game is one of the most entertaining shows for today’s all generation peoples, particularly Football in most part of countries of the world. Football as a sport is only growing more and more popular every day. It is currently the world’s most-watched sport and has the highest viewership audience. As a result, a whole industry has arisen around this sport with one important part of it being FIFA. The amount of budget allocated and the number of persons involved in a Football game directly or indirectly can affect the financial budget of a person to a federation's finance. In such cases, player selection for a finalist from the federation is the most crucial task. Every year different approaches were investigated for player selections, but none of them was regarded as the best approach for team selection. Thus, there is a need for a standard approach for finding out the perfect players for their teams with the exact qualities that they demand. In response, we have developed a machine learning model that predicts players who could replace a current existing player in a team. Along with that, we have also incorporated Data Analytics that helps us decide which factors would be more important than others. The proposed prediction model is implemented and the results of our machine learning (SAGA-ML) tool are applied to Electronics Arts’ FIFA Soccer game.
