1. Experimental Investigation of Datura Stramonium Biodiesel

Energy demand is increasing due to the increase in the population growth in India and in the world at large. It has become apparent and to go as per the plan for the production of biodiesel to make a substantial contribution to the future energy demands in respect to the domestic and industrial economies. The use of non-edible plant oils is very significant because of the great demand for edible oils as a food source. Moreover, the edible oils feedstocks costs are far expensive to be used as fuel. Therefore, the production of bio-diesels from non-edible oil is an effective way to overcome all the associated problems with edible oils. However, the potential of converting non-edible oils into bio-diesels must be well examined because the physical and chemical properties might differ from each other, hence they need furthermore research on this. To dispose of these issues, thinking about the elective assets. Biodiesels, in view of no awesome oils, animals’ fat ratio and tiny fishes are guests. The examinations on the impact of biodiesels on its strength and weakness highlights of diesel energy power engines. More viscosity consistency is found as the pure use of datura stramonium plant seeds oil straight in an engine that is expelled by transforming it into biodiesel by the trans-esterification process. Fuel highlights like calorific values, flashpoints and cetane numbers of biodiesel and biodiesel-diesel blends were discovered its properties are similar to diesel fuel. Performance comes about to uncover that a large portion of the biodiesels, has given 4.84% higher brake thermal efficiency and high brake specific fuel consumption. The NOx is less in some load condition and HC, slightly higher than diesel fuel.

3. Brain Tumor Analysis using Convolutional Neural Network with MRI Images

Brain Tumor Analysis plays a vital role in detecting the tumored cells of the brain. A brain tumor can become very lethal at its advance stages. It can easily spread to other parts of the brain and affect the healthy cells of the brain as well. They reproduce uncontrollably. Hence, detection at early stages is very essential in treatment for improvement of the life expectancy of the patients. However, the detection of the tumor is a difficult and challenging task since the tumor possesses complex characteristics in appearance and boundaries. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is being used extensively for the detection of brain tumors that requires segmenting huge volumes of 3D MRI images which is very challenging if done manually. It is the most commonly used medical image for brain tumor analysis. So, we are using MRI images for detecting the brain tumor. In this system, we are going to use Keras and Convolutional neural network(CNN) for the automatic segmentation and detection of a brain tumor using MRI images. It is considered as one of the efficient methods for detection of brain tumors. It has one or more convolutional layers and is used mainly for image classification and segmentation techniques. It helps in achieving high accuracy and is optimal as well.

6. Fruit quality detection using machine vision techniques

Machine vision techniques are now widely used to detect the quality of fruits. Image processing is usually the first step in detecting the quality of fruits. The process starts by capturing the image of the fruits using raspberry pi. Then, the image is transmitted to the processing stage where it can extract the features of the fruit like shape, size, and color. These processes are done using image processing. It helps to identify and compare the fruit shape, size, and color with the trained datasets. This is done during the training and testing stage. A diversity of methods for automatic separation of fruits is developed. Artificial Neural Network is the one that helps to segregate the fruits based on the quality such as good, moderate and rotten fruit. The existing system can only separate the fruits into good and rotten one with an accuracy of 87.4% but our proposed system is capable of separating the fruits into good, moderate and rotten one with an accuracy of 94.12%.

11. Challenges of Governance in India

Governance refers to the process of decision making by administrative authorities, or Governance includes law-making, Institution building, regulation, and administration. All of these are actually intertwined in designing good policy processes and the implementation of these policies. If we take the example of the economic sector of the country it seems here that derisory bankruptcy laws, government ownership of banks and non-bank finical companies, and poor regulations all contribute to the bad debt problem in the Indian financial sector. If we see from another perspective there is a number of catastrophes being faced by governance in India. The daily Incidences, Crime, Violation of law, Poor Policy Process, Economic Crises, Environmental concerns, health education, poor delivery of public services, issues related to women, and other emerging social issues are the key challenges that are being faced by governance in the country. This paper highlights the challenges of Governance in the country in the elegance of basic issues which are now becoming a challenge for the process of Governance in the country. The concept of governance describes by different organizations and authors from time to time. It refers to the governing process of a country in simple terms.

25. Study of movement of gold price rates in terms of USD and INR

For many centuries now, gold is preferred as one of the major investment options, especially by Indian investors. The prices of the gold are increasing and the price of the gold is affected by multiple various factors like exchange rate of US dollar with INR, Crude oil prices, repo rate and inflation rate. This paper is mainly focused on the factors like exchange rate of US dollar with INR. Each of the factors is studied with the gold prices. The relationship between the factors and the gold prices is emphasized in this paper. There exists an inverse relationship between the USD and gold prices. In other words, when the value of the dollar increases relative to other currencies around the world, the prices of gold tends to fall in terms of the dollar. This is because gold becomes more expensive in other currencies. As the price of a given commodity like gold moves higher, the demand for that commodity recedes.

32. Investigation on power quality assessment in data centre

The Data Centre (DC) is used to store the database for customer’s related services like banking, IT sectors and share marketing etc. In order to accomplish the scheduled tasks and manipulate the bushiness hours effectively Data Centre (DC) needs uninterrupted power supply (UPS). The major types of equipment of DC are UPS, chiller or PAC, Precision Air Handling Unit (PAHU) or Air Handling Unit (AHU) etc. While these types of equipment come into operation they are adversely affected by power quality problem particularly from voltage sag. If the voltage magnitude during the voltage sag exceeds the low voltage tolerance limits, the sensing device in the UPS system senses the input voltage with respect to tolerance limit and it turns ON the battery mode. Under battery mode condition the Data Centre (DC) gets rated voltage continuously and work is carried out without power interruption. When the incoming supply voltage is resumed back to its rated value UPS systems turns off the battery mode and turns on the normal supply mode. This is how the Data Centre (DC) is effectively compensated by UPS. But in the case of chiller PQ problem caused by voltage sag is not compensated. If the voltage sag events continue, the under-voltage relay trips the power input and data centre equipment get to turn off. Hence the room temperatures of DC will abruptly increase and causing data center failure. In order to figure out the problems in data centre caused by power quality i.e. voltage sag, the PQ assessment was carried out at DIGSILENT power factory in Bengaluru, India connected with 11 kV Ring Main Unit (RMU) for four days between 22/9/2017 to 25/9/2017. About 36 voltage sag events and 4 interruptions were captured and the highest temperature inside the DC hall was also recorded. This paper discusses the techno-economical location for installing the DSTATCOM to enhance the power quality during voltage sag event for the data centre (DC). Dranetz Power Guide 4400 Power Quality Analyzer (PQA) has been used for PQ assessment and carried out at DIGSILENT power factory

54. A Brief Introduction on Artificial Intelligence

When we think about the term “artificial intelligence”, many of us imagine an army of human-like robots rebelling against humanity, while a few people from a more positive thinking community are envisioning a brighter future where AI serves them in all possible ways from preparing your regular coffee with the right amount of sugar to personalizing and prioritizing your office activities. AI should be seen as a broad concept in which machines can deal with tasks in a way we would call intelligent or smart. AI is a bunch of technologies that include machine learning and some other technologies like natural language processing (NLP), inference algorithms, neural networks, etc. To tick the box of being called AI, machines/programs must be capable of a few things. It should be able to mimic the human thought process and behavior and also act intelligent, rational and ethical just like the way humans do. AI has already made its way in our day-to-day lives through several applications we use but are not aware of. For example, personal assistants like Apple's Siri or Google's Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa are some of the most widely used digital assistants who employ the concept of Artificial Intelligence like recognizing voices of various users, analyze the information they are given and provide an answer or a solution. There are many more examples. Experts predict AI will outperform humans at virtually everything in the following 45 years.

64. Impact of employee involvement on organizational performance – A study of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant

The efficiency and effectiveness of processes executed in any organization are dependent on people who execute the same. As per the literature of Managerial Economics, there are Four factors of Production viz., Men, Material, Machinery and Money. The Men play the key character in controlling ad regulating the remaining factors of production in an efficient manner if they are inclined to do so. Hence, it is essential to ensure that, people are in possession of a positive attitude towards their organization, co-workers as well as the management. People with a positive attitude feel satisfied with their job and tend to exhibit a commitment to their work and strive for the fulfillment of organizational Goals and Objectives. Winning the attitude of the employees is not an easy task in the current era owing to the modern scenario of growing interests, increasing technology and Inflation, diminishing the value of money and monthly earnings. Hence, the strategic and scientific Management experts rightly concluded that instead of making the people motivated through Extrinsic benefits. It is quite wise to make them self-motivated by offering Intrinsic benefits. These intrinsic benefits include Freedom to work, provision of Challenging work and an environment where the people are involved in making decisions that exert impact on their work, work environment, and working conditions. Hence, in the modern organizational scenario, it is extremely essential that the management should ensure the involvement of its employees, which makes them self-motivated, satisfied and committed to the organization’s Objectives.

66. Analysis of ECG signals for detection of sleep apnea

Electrocardiography (ECG) signals are widely used to gauge the health of the human heart, and the resulting time-series signal is often analyzed manually by a medical professional to detect any arrhythmia that the patient may have suffered. Much work has been done to automate the process of analyzing ECG signals, but most of the research involves extensive preprocessing of the ECG data to derive vectorized features and subsequently designing a classifier to discriminate between healthy ECG signals and those indicative of an Arrhythmia. This approach requires knowledge and data on the different types of Arrhythmia for training. Detecting abnormal heartbeats from an electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is an important problem studied extensively and yet is a difficult problem that defies a viable working solution, especially on a mobile platform which requires computationally efficient and yet accurate detection mechanism. However, the heart is a complex organ and there are many different and new types of Arrhythmia that can occur which were not part of the original training set. Thus, it may be more prudent to adopt an anomaly detection approach towards analyzing ECG signals. .We use various algorithms and methods and constructed a code for classifying the arrhythmia based on the variations in the signals and putting up a threshold value for every particular category respectively

67. Fake news analyzer

Social media is a platform which acts as a chain for spreading of diversified news. Its cheap cost, fast access, and quick circulation and broadcasting of information help people to look out and consume news from social media. In today’s era, online social media plays a crucial role during real-world practical events, especially climacteric events or events that gain huge social attention from the population of the world. Apart from legitimate news information, malicious content, mean-spirited, vindictive and misleading information is also put online during these events, which can result in harm, chaos and monetary loss in the practical world. In our paper, we draw attention to the role of Twitter in analyzing a major ongoing event of India: NRC and the Citizenship Amendment Act in spreading fake content about these events. We elaborate on the gathering, elucidation, and validation process in detail and perform much exploratory analysis on the recognition of linguistic differences in fake and real or legitimate news content. Also, we aim to find out the source or origin of the fake news and the sources who help to spread the fake content. Secondly, we aim to perform a set of learning experiments to find out accurate fake news and their sources. Besides, we provide a relative analysis of the automatic and manual identification of fake news with the legitimate informants of the news content. This paper proposes a system that identifies unreliable and false news after analyzing and computing the set of data. This system aims to use various NLP algorithms and classification algorithms or techniques to help achieve maximum accuracy in finding the fake news.

The aim of a chatbot is to make human and machine interaction possible. In this scenario, the chatbot is a medical consultant between the patients and the doctors. For this purpose, there is a need of the Human-Computer Interaction(HCI) research which includes study and implementation intended for human use. So we design a system that uses Artificial Intelligence Markup Language(AIML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). And for the purpose of communication needs, we use Name Data Networking(NDN) instead of the typical IP protocol. NDN provides two essential properties which are its Consumer Driven Nature in Communication and the privacy it provides. The motivation behind the idea is that much of the needed answers are available on the internet about the medication which the chatbot provides in a friendly manner and if there are serious issues provide consultations as well as appointments with the Doctor as early as possible.

73. Design and modification of smart stick for visually impaired with stick finder

To improve navigation of visually disabled people we have designed an innovative stick using Arduino. This stick uses advanced technology to navigate with ease. The stick which we have modified is lighter in weight, affordable and easy to handle. This stick first uses ultrasonic sensors and detects obstacles. On sensing obstacles, the sensor passes this data to Arduino. Arduino uses C programming. It then processes this data and calculates the distance of obstacles from the person. If an obstacle is not close to the person then the circuit stays steady. If the obstacle is close to the person then the circuit sends a signal to the sound buzzer and vibrator. As the distance between person and obstacle gets reduced the sound of buzzer and vibrator goes on increasing. This system is even made for blind-deaf people as they have only sense as a way to understand any process with the help of vibration they can sense the obstacle. This system has one more feature i.e. A stick finder. This helps the blind person find the stick where they might have kept it with the help of a remote. Pressing the remote button sounds a buzzer on the stick which helps the person to find the stick. Thus, this system allows for obstacle detection as well as finding sticks misplaced by visually disabled people.

74. Impact of industrial democracy on job satisfaction, commitment and engagement of employees: A study of Visakhapatnam steel plant

The meaning of ‘Democracy’ resembles a social environment where Governments are of the People, run by the People and run for the People. Similarly, the term ‘Industrial Democracy’ can be understood as Management of Organization is of the employees, by the employees, and for the employees. Enough research has been undertaken in the field of Employee Involvement and its influence on Organizational performance. Many of the Management experts, Researches and Scholars have used the terms Employee Involvement and Industrial Democracy interchangeably. However, Employee involvement is a mere scheme adopted by the Organizations to make their employees take part in making decisions that affect their jobs, job conditions and job environment. The idea behind this scheme is to utilize their creative and innovative potential and also to ensure hassle-free implementation of decisions since they are generated by a team where the actual performers (employees) are also a part. Making employees take part in decision-making is proven to make them feel important, satisfied and committed to the Organizational goals. On the other hand, the concept of Industrial Democracy provides answers to the questions – Why should people involve? What makes them involve? What benefit they do anticipate? How they should involve? and so on. Thus, Industrial Democracy encompasses all aspects of HRM-related to employee welfare, Industrial relations, etc. The present study is aimed at examining the impact of Industrial Democracy on employees’ Job satisfaction, Commitment and Engagement as they are promoters of enhanced production and productivity of the organizations.

75. A critical review on performance of solar air heaters technologies and techniques

The use of flat solar air heaters is extensively worked out in low-temperature solar energy utilization. The efficiency of such heaters has to be low because of the low convective heat transfer coefficient between absorber plate and flowing air which increases the absorber plate temperature, leading to higher heat losses to the ambient. Several designs of solar air heaters having different roughness geometries have been done by a number of investigators. The present paper deals with a comprehensive review of different technologies and methodologies applied for different designs to attain an appropriate enhancement in heat flux. Analytical and experimental result as well as worked out values of result with respect to heat transfer data in terms of Nusselt number, utilizing the equations or correlations developed by various researchers and investigators have been represented with respect to the roughness and flow parameters (p/e, e/D and Re), for the comparison of the rate of heat transfer. The experimental values of the average Nusselt number for multi V roughness have been found to be the highest. However, the addition of a booster mirror to increase the rate of radiant energy and the use of computational methodology has been found even better as compared to the previous one.

79. A literature review on physio-chemical parameters of domestic grey water of residential building

One of the most persistent complications of today is water inadequacy. International Water Management Institute has been estimated that one in three persons will face water inadequacy by the year 2025 in India and as per the United Nations report 2016 around 2.7 billion people by the same time worldwide. Although India occupies only 3.29 million km2 geographical areas which form 2.4% of the world’s land area, it supports over 15% of the world's population with only 4% of the world's water resources. With augmented population progression and development, there is a need to critically look at alternative approaches to ensure water availability. These alternative resources include rainwater and bulk of water used in the household will emerge as greywater and contain some organic waste materials dissolved and suspended in it. When this is allowed to flow out this will join the sewage and bacteriologically contaminated, resulting in a sewage stream. It is possible to intercept this greywater, at the household level, treat it so that it can be recycled for use of other purposes.

81. Auto maintenance of poultry farm

The main idea of our project is to find the poultry farm parameters like Moisture, Temperature, water and feeding the chicks using temperature and humidity sensor, level sensor and timer. Moreover, we just update these values to the farmer using GSM, so that the users can get to know about the parameters of their farm from any distinct points away from their farm. The user can also manipulate and control the device which will be placed on the farm like turning OFF and ON through the mobile itself. Thus, the user can get details about their farm and also control the whole hardware device being in any part of the world away from their farm. Thus, our solution turns out to be a cost-effective one and also promotes healthy and efficient monitoring of poultry farms.

87. Transformation of number system

A number is just a combination of some symbols expressed as numerals or digits in any number system, the number of terms in the combination depends upon the base of a number system (or a number of digits/numerals in the number system). Any combination can be represented as (Q)m Where, Q → Combination (or integer) and m → base of a number system (or a number of digits in the system). (11000000)2 → (300)8 → (192)10 → (C0)16 As you can see that a combination 192 in base 10 system have a different number of terms, based on the number system it lies in and as we increase the digits in the number system, the number of terms in the combination decrease but its value remains same. The large combinations in our base 10 system, can be a small combination in a base m system having a very large value of m. In base 10 system a combination arrives know as infinity and this combination arrive because we have only 10 digits, if we convert this combination in base m system where m →∞, then this combination can become finite in that system.

91. SHARONLAY: A new approach for post endodontic restorations: A Case Report

Root canal treatment leads to a considerable loss of tooth structure so after completion of root canal treatment it should ideally be followed by a restoration that allows cuspal coverage. This is important as there is a direct relationship between the amount of remaining tooth structure and the ability to resist occlusal forces. The cuspal width to length ratio of 1:2 or more decides whether there is a requirement of a full crown or an onlay. SHARONLAY is a new onlay design providing the necessary reinforcement in a conservative manner and protecting endodontically treated teeth against both vertical and horizontal forces. This case report presents the use of SHARONLAY as a possible alternative for post endodontic restorations.

93. Review of heat transfer enhancement techniques

Heat transfer is a very important process used in the industries, especially in process industries where the raw material is subjected to various processes so as to convert it into finished products. To achieve better heat transfer efficiency of the heat exchanger, maximum heat transfer should take place within the operating temperature range of the fluids in the heat exchanger. The researcher has made an effort to improve the heat transfer rate between two fluids. They have been developed various heat transfer enhancement techniques to improve the heat transfer rate by considering various factors that affect the heat transfer rate such as temperature, the velocity of fluid, turbulence, surface area subjected to heat transfer, etc. These techniques can be classified as active techniques and passive techniques. Active techniques are those who require a power supply for the operation while passive techniques are those who do not require any external power supply for the operation. This paper presents a review of various heat transfer enhancement techniques so that they can be chosen into the industry as per the requirement and according to their relative merits.

95. Production and optimization of ethanol production from spent tea waste using Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Tea is an aromatic beverage prepared from the leaves of camellia sinesis. It is the most widely consumed drink in the world next to the water. Extracts of tea leaves contain polyphenols, amino acids, vitamins, polysaccharides and have a stimulatory effect due to its caffeine content. Consumption of tea in India remains modest and due to the presence of carbohydrates tea waste spent is used as a potential substrate for ethanol production. However worldwide demand for ethanol production has been increased in recent years so utilization of leftover tea spent for ethanol production may reduce the cost of the fermentation process. optimization conditions for high levels of ethanol production from leftover tea spent using saccharomyces cerevisiae were determined by alterations of temperature and pH and finally, comparative studies of ethanol production using natural tea spent media to that of commercial production medium leads to the conclusion that the activity of tea spent in ethanol production was slightly high to that of commercial production medium.

96. Automatic vehicle speed control

Internet of things technology enables all the physical devices to be connected through the network and exchange data among themselves over the internet. Road accidents are the most dangerous things to happen to a road user especially due to over-speeding. One of the possible ways of controlling speed to prevent accidents is by applying the applications of IoT. The objective of Automatic Vehicle Speed Control is to develop a system that automatically controls the speed of the vehicles at specific areas such as school zones, hospital zones, speed limited areas, etc. Encoders are mounted at the zones which continually transmit codes that are different in different zones. When the vehicle reaches the zone, the decoder present in the vehicle decodes the data transmitted by the encoder and sends the decoded data to the programmed micro-controller which in turn is responsible for decreasing the speed of the vehicle and keeping vehicle speed constant until it moves out of the zone. Later on, the vehicle can regain its original speed. Apart from speed detection this system also has an inbuilt object detector unit (with 555 IC, TSOP 1738, IR) i.e the vehicle comes to halt when it detects any object in front. Thereby avoiding most of the accidents. Automatic Vehicle Speed Control also consists of a unit (with LDR) that automatically illuminates the street lights in the absence of light.

100. Female foeticide perceptions and practices among women in Punjab

Female foeticide besides skewed sex ratio and its attendant social evils has grave ethical undertones, especially for medical professionals and our commitment to save lives. Randomly selected 100 women were interviewed using a semi-structured interview schedule to explore the female foeticide perceptions and practices among couples in district Muktsar city and district Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar of Punjab. Prenatal sex determination among their relatives and neighbors were reported by 80% respondent, though they themselves had never resorted to it. Could this figure influence the proxy rates for community behaviour, perhaps, this needs in-depth exploration. Supporting to this fact, 25.9% of respondents reported of ever been pressurized by their family members to undergo prenatal sex diagnosis of their foetus. Encouragingly 90% of respondents had opined that that repeated prenatal sex diagnosis and abortions are detrimental to the mental and physical health of a woman and are wholly preventable. Stricter laws and honest enforcement of these laws were the commonest suggestions by the respondent to prevent female foeticide in society.

101. Multiple space closure using thermoplastic tray- Create a beautiful smile – One shot away

To smile is easy to gift others a beautiful smile it’s a blessing. An important aspect of a beautiful smile is a dentition with no spaces. A diastema can be defined as space >0.5mm between the proximal surfaces of two adjacent teeth. Midline diastemata (or diastemas) occur in approximately 98% of 6 years old’s (maxillary growth and ugly duckling stage), 49% of 11 years old’s and 7% of 12– 18-year-old’s4. But mostly after the late transitional period, it regresses on its own. The continuing presence of a diastema between the maxillary central incisors in adults often is considered unesthetic or malocclusion problems. A multitude of techniques have been employed to improve the smile by closing Diastema. Orthodontic treatment is a good choice for space closure and alignment correction, but the duration of the treatment and the multiple visits often appears hectic. And let's not forget about the expenses in ortho treatment. On the other hand, recent studies also showed that direct composite resin restorations are considered functional, stable, aesthetical, and cheaper restorations completed in less chair time by using appropriate techniques for patients with appropriate occlusion. Closure of midline diastema using free handed composite restoration is helpful, but this is tedious when there are multiple diastemata. With the emergence of advanced and contemporary techniques, the time required for performing restorative procedures has drastically reduced2. Means like just in ‘ONE SHOT’. This is a case report presenting the closure of multiple diastemata using a thermoplastic bleaching tray that would make the closure of multiple spaces in the anterior region easier and esthetic.

104. Colorization of black and white images using generative adversarial networks

We present a generative adversarial network-based system that faithfully colorizes black and white images without human intervention. Recent methods for such problems typically use per-pixel loss between the output and ground-truth images and the images generated using such loss lacks details. where as in "Perceptual losses for real-time style transfer and super- resolution" [2] paper suggests the use of the perceptual loss function that generates high-quality images. We combine the benefits of both approaches. we have replaced pixel-loss function with perceptual loss function which gives visually pleasing results and used discriminative learning technique where we train first half of generator with lower learning rate as we are using pre-trained model and last half with higher learning rate which reduces the training time of generator. It’s easier and faster to train a large number of samples of smaller images initially and then scale up the network by improving images to 220px by 220px from 64px by 64px. This is called progressive resizing [6]. it also helps the model to generalize better as is sees many more images of different shapes and less likely to be overfitting.

107. Irrational Numbers in the Physical Universe, and its effects on length, time and mass: Introduction to Physical Irrational Numbers

If we want to extend the length of a body (without stretching it), what can we do? We can simply add an element of desired length and extend that body. Keeping this in mind that to extend the length of the body we can add elements. Now, let’s take a body of length pi, which is 3.1415 m (first 4 places). Now let’s write this distance as sum of elements: 3 m + 0.1 m + 0.04 m + 0.001 m + 0.0005 m . . So as we go ahead the decimal places, we can see that the length of the elements which we are adding are getting smaller and smaller, and as we know in our physical universe, the smallest particle to exist is a quark, hence it will be our smallest element which we can add. And as there are no particles beyond quark hence the number will end at moment the diameter of a quark is reached, as the diameter of a quark is 〖10〗^(-18) m, hence all irrational numbers will terminate at the eighteenth place. This is true only for the bodies in the physical world. These numbers behave like constants or rational numbers, but they are fundamentally irrational. Similarly we will find the termination of irrational numbers when they represent mass and time.

114. Multiple clustering solutions using FK-means Algorithm

Most of the clustering algorithms try to find a single efficient clustering solution. However, data can be grouped and interpreted in many different ways. Moreover, different efficient clustering solutions are interesting for different views. This is particularly true in the high dimensional, where different views reveal different possible groupings of the data. In this paper, we apply multivariate mutual information to find multiple views for the data by grouping features. Then we apply the Fast K-means (FK-means) algorithm to these different views to find multiple clustering solutions. Our experiments on synthetic and real data show that our method can discover multiple views of the data that correspond to different solutions

117. Precision farming using embedded systems and machine learning

Agriculture plays one of the major roles in the occupation of India and machine learning is a growing field in agricultural analysis. Choosing a particular crop is an extremely important issue during agriculture. Any farmer is curious about getting the recommendation of the crop he should grow. The common problem existing among Indian farmers is they don’t choose right crop supported their soil requirements. Because of this they face big set back in productivity and leads to a loss in income. Also monitoring weather is a crucial part of precision agriculture. A farmer cant fight with the weather. However, he can accept the given situation and take additional farm management practices to attenuate crop losses and take precautions beforehand. Therefore accurate information regarding weather is vital in order that farm activities are often planned without adverse events. Being conscious of real-time weather is best thanks to protecting crops and a secure high and healthy yield. In this paper, this problem is solved by proposing a crop recommendation system using a Machine learning algorithm and getting real-time data of weather using wireless sensors in one system will be really beneficial for the farmers.

120. An attempt of best scheduling approach for a construction project

The current study is an attempt made to decide the best scheduling approach to a construction project in order to deliver it on time, quality and cost. The major constraints typically observed in any construction project are time overruns, cost overruns. It is, therefore, necessary for a project manager to attempt the best scheduling approach based on the study of project ideals and project constraints. A Project ideal is a measure of success. Common project ideals identified are Highest client satisfaction, Highest quality for deliverables, shortest time possible and lowest cost possible. The typical project constraints are Knowledge, Time, cost, resource and risk constraints. After having a project PIC analysis, the best scheduling approach is decided like an Agile approach when knowledge is a constraint or when the ideal is the highest client satisfaction, Critical path method when time is dominant and time is ideal, Resource Critical Path ( RCP) approach in any resource-constrained project. A logical sequence of activities with assigned duration and resources is made and the schedule is prepared. The critical path method is the approach used widely in a construction project. Critical path and critical activities are studied in advance with the use of MSP 2016 or any other computer software and critically monitored so that these activities are completed on time and there should not be any delay in completing these activities.

121. A three-layer privacy scheme for storing data using fog computing along with cloud computing

Nowadays, we often listen to the word of cloud computing. In our technological world, we care a lot about our privacy, so we use cloud computing to achieve it. For the time being, there are many people who are interested in others life and are always try to get other data. Recently, We came to know that this cloud computing storage system also been crashed. In order to decrease the risk of losing data, we introduced a new technology called Fog computing. In this new storage system, we have used a theory of the Hash-Solomon code of algorithm which helps in dividing data into three parts. And fog computing we use is to store the three parts of data into cloud, fog and in secondary storage or main memory of the device/system. The composition of data that divided into is 95%, 4%, and 1% respectively. As it is dived into three parts it’ll be difficult for the hacker to crash into fog server and get the data stored in it. We all know about cloud storage is secured externally whereas fog server is secured both in and out of it. That means fog storage system is secured both internally and externally. Here Hash-Solomon ensures the data to be encoded first before dividing the data and even encodes each part after the division of data. For retrieving this data when the owner needed then it is decoded by Hash-Solomon itself, if we use another algorithm it will only do encode or decode but not both. So, we use this algorithm for flexibility, compatibility and also for better efficiency. So, we can say that this increases privacy protection.

MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc Network) could also be a self-configuring and infrastructure less network that consists of mobile nodes that communicate with each other through wireless links. This paper analyzes the Blackhole attack which is one of the possible attacks in ad-hoc networks. The intruder, once chosen as an intermediate node, drops the packets instead of forwarding or processing them, causing a neighborhood (BH) within the network. The goal is to develop an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) to secure routing in MANET. So on the beat this defect, we propose a cross-layer based IDS techniques. To use cross-layer techniques to detect and isolate malicious node in MANET then updating malicious node information within the routing table. For cross-layer, we use MAC and network layer. The medium access control (MAC) protocol allows mobile nodes to share a typical broadcast channel. The network-layer holds the multi-hop communication paths over the network. This paper gives the corresponding simulation results in NS2. With the help of performance metrics like packet delivery ratio, end-to-end delay, and throughput, it's shown that cross-layering between AODV and Modified DSR. This paper gives the result of AODV is best among the two protocols.

130. Invisible facial flushing in COVID-19 patient rapidly detected by smartphone application: Subclinical discovery with a novel method

No studies of COVID-19 patients mentioned that facial flushing was a clinical feature that could be found. The invisible facial flushing in COVID-19 patient, unrecognized clinical sign with the naked eye could be detected by the smartphone application and probably was the most common clinical features of Coronavirus disease 2019 as seen in dengue infection and influenza. We discovered the innovative method which can detect invisible facial flushing in dengue infection and influenza by using image enhancement with decorrelation combined image segmentation with K-means clustering. We expect to be able to apply to the COVID-19 patient too, because the clinical signs and symptoms, including the immunopathogenesis of dengue infection and influenza, are similar to COVID-19. This is the first case of the COVID-19 patient with the appearance of invisible facial flushing detected by the smartphone application. The innovative application may be useful as a rapid screening tool for the diagnosis of COVID-19 patients in the future. This novel screening tool for diagnosis of COVID-19 patients will help all medical service providers the effective screening tool for the recognition and early diagnosis before performing CT scans and real-time RT PCR (RRT-PCR) assays, especially in some health care facilities where could not be performed due to lack of laboratory support. Furthermore, application in active case finding for COVID-19, the key actions to stop transmission is challenging in countries with community transmission.

133. Planning, scheduling and allocation of resource for cost optimization of multi-storeyed structure

In every construction project, there are two most important factors to be considered in the planning of project i.e. time and cost. Time deals with speed, quality of work and availability of tools and materials whereas cost deals with optimization and availability of resource. The aim of this project is to complete the project within a given time and a budget, and also to achieve the other objectives. The constraints that are observed in every project is time overrun and cost overrun. As we can say it’s a most difficult task for a project managers to practice it, which includes fixed measuring progress, executions as per plan and corrective actions should be taken whenever required. Due to proper planning and scheduling, it gives us a knowledge of proper time and the process of cost mostly remains the same. Basically, cost optimization and allocation of resource directly deals with availability of tools and materials. With a proper sequence of activities with assigned durations and resource, scheduled is prepared. In this project critical path and critical activities are studied with the use of MS-Project 2016, so that activities should be properly observed while execution, so that there will be no delay of time in the project, and also, stay focused on the wastage of materials thus lead to the proper optimization of materials and reduction of cost.

134. Simulation and design of DC-DC boost converter

Within the photovoltaic (PV) power market, the ac PV module has shown significant growth. However, a high voltage gain converter is essential for the module grid connection through the dc-ac inverter. This thesis proposes a converter that uses a floating active switch to split the power on the PV panel when the ac module is closed; this design protects the input and users from electrical hazards. In addition to the limited amount of work and many measurements of the integrated inductor, this converter achieves a high degree of electrical conversion efficiency; the leakage inductor power of the integrated inductor is well used in the load. These features explain the efficiency of the module.

135. Combating money laundering using artificial intelligence

In today’s world, money laundering is a major issue, so there is a need to fight against money laundering. “Cleaning stolen money, making the source of money no longer exist, called Money Laundering” Financial transactions are huge so it is a challenging task to detect money laundering. As earlier AMLS ( Anti-Money Laundering Suite) was introduced to detect suspicious activities but it is applicable only on individual transactions not for a credit card transaction and other bank transactions. To Overcome these issues of AMLS we propose a Machine Learning method to identify common attributes and behavior with other bank account transactions and also identify suspicious transactions through credit cards. Detection of Money Laundering transaction from a large volume dataset is difficult, so we reduce the input dataset and then calculating the annual turnover of their credit card transfer set a max value which is to be transferred.  Also, find a pair of the transaction with another bank account with common attributes and behavior.

136. Development of AI-Alloy piston coating material for high specific power engine application

The depletion of conventional fuel sources at a tremendous rate and increasing environmental pollution has motivated extensive research and development in the combustion chamber of the engine. In the present study, multilayer ceramic coating on the piston crown was developed to improve thermal efficiency, combustion and exhaust emission, fuel consumption. Also, ceramic coating on crown withstands the elevated temperature and pressure and provides maximum working efficiency. The property advantages of Alumina and Yttria Stabilized Zirconia in combination were utilized to fabricate the Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) in this study. The multilayer coating of alumina and zirconia was fabricated using an air plasma spray method. For effective bonding, a Ni-based bond coat was applied on the substrate before TBC topcoat. A research piston similar to the actual piston was used to fabricate TBC coating. Microstructural characterization was carried out to check the coating uniformity using Optical and Scanning Electron Microscope. The defect-free uniform coating was formed with an average thickness of bond coat, alumina and YSZ was about 90 µm, 70 µm, and 180 µm respectively. The performance of the TBC coating on the crown of the research piston was assessed by subjecting to the thermal barrier and thermal shock tests. In the thermal barrier test, a maximum temperature drop of 265 °C was observed at 590 °C. Delamination of the bond coat was observed after 90 cycles. Microstructural analysis was also carried out to study the damage that occurred during thermal exposure. All the observation and the test results of this investigation are reported here.

146. Alternatives to mitigate Corona

Coronavirus is most pandemic virus and it is challenging too for the scholars and scientists to discover its vaccine. Like every organism in nature struggling for survival, they evolve or mutate. Similarly, the coronavirus has changed its genome sequence to adapt to the new species. In fact, research has shown COVID-19 has mutated repeatedly in ways to boost its survival which results in more difficulties to discover its vaccine. We can’t hit the coronavirus directly and neither our immune system is capable enough to fight with it, but by killing the infected cells, we can kill the corona virus too.

151. Numerical investigation of a modified NACA-0018 Airfoil using Bumpy Profile at Low Reynolds Number

Flow separation is one of the major problems affecting the performance of all airfoils under a high angle of attack. Several passive flow mechanisms have been investigated to limit this phenomenon and improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the airfoil by increasing the lift force while decreasing the drag force associated with it. This study investigates the application of surface bumps over both the suction and pressure sides of the NACA-0018 airfoil at low Reynolds number of 500,000. The bump shapes resemble the shape of the Hawk which does not show a smooth profile in nature. The bumps are introduced in the form of sine waves with different amplitudes and periods. Bumps on each side have been investigated separately, the optimum amplitude and period are determined, the two optimum parameters were joined together forming a new airfoil shape. It was found that this approach limits separation at the stall angle and reduces the drag force as a result of the bumps on the suction side. The bumps on the pressure side were found to enhance the lift force as high-pressure spots are formed, which increases the differential pressure. Glide ratio improvement of 17% was reached using the modified airfoil.

154. Application of the enhanced single face photo as a novel screening tool for diagnosis of dengue infection and influenza

The invisible facial flushing in dengue infection and influenza can be detected and visible by the Manote and Matinun (M&M) technique using PC program and smartphone app. The unique patterns of facial flushing provide a clue to the diagnosis of dengue infection and influenza. To analyze the facial flushing areas in dengue infection and influenza compared with other causes from the single face photo by smartphone camera app and apply the enhanced single face photo as a novel screening tool for diagnosis of dengue infection and influenza. The patients with acute febrile illness were classified into 4 groups of different underlying causes as other causes, dengue, influenza A and influenza B respectively. The single face photo was enhanced with the Rock Art Enhancer app using for Android smartphone in 3 steps modified from the Manote and Matinun technique and further analyzed with the ImageJ program with Color Inspector 3D plugin. The patterns of the facial flushing areas were differentiated into 3 categories, as no facial flushing, localized facial flushing and generalized facial flushing. The analysis of the facial flushing areas was calculated in percents of primary and secondary facial flushing areas (1 FFA and 2 FFA). The sensitivity or "true positive rate" of 3 steps modified Manote and Matinun technique for all tests in dengue, influenza A and influenza B group is 96.8% (94.2% for all patients). The 97.8% of dengue group tests (94.7% for of dengue patients) could be detected the facial flushing either localized or generalized pattern. The upper cut-off points that helps distinguish from neither dengue nor influenza to either dengue or influenza is approximately 20% and 9% in the primary facial flushing areas (1 FFA) and the secondary facial flushing areas (2 FFA) respectively. Although the generalized facial flushing patterns were found in dengue (66.7%) more than in influenza (50%), but we could not distinguish between dengue and influenza, depending on two different patterns of facial flushing (no statistically significant differences, P = 0.09). The enhanced single face photo with 3 steps modified Manote & Matinun technique is useful as a novel screening tool to distinguish other causes of acute febrile illness from both dengue infection and influenza. The upper cut-off points in both primary facial flushing areas (1 FFA) and the secondary facial flushing areas (2 FFA) help for the recognition and diagnosis either dengue infection or influenza. Because it is useful and effective as well as economical and available so it should be suitable for a novel screening tool in the diagnosis of dengue infection and influenza, including for the application of telemedicine in the future.

As a result requirement for more space for parking areas, lobbies are increasing day by day, hence nowadays the floating columns are introduced in the buildings, but providing floating column is not safe as per the design is concerned, hence to support the floating column an inclined member named as haunch is provided to support the floating column and make the building more stable. This project deals with the comparative study of the analysis of multi-storied buildings with and without haunch provided at different positions, thereby aims at providing a safe position of haunch in a building. The equivalent static analysis is carried out on the school building of G+4 stories using STAAD PRO V8i software and a comparison of these models is carried out.

158. Smart Classroom

Smart products have influenced the market to create our lives easier at home, within the workplace, and everywhere. Technology has benefited in each aspect of our life right from education to communication. It’s a fresh vision in education. The best usage of technology can bring an enormous change in education. The smart learning approach makes the learners of all age groups and walks of life with a framework and variety of smart tools that encourage higher levels of understanding. The education system of a nation like India has made students follow a stereotyped method of learning. Students are practiced to take notes on continuous lectures. This has eventually decreased the listening capability of students and also students who absent themselves to classes find it difficult to follow-up the portions. This system proposes to develop a method in which the lectures are taken as notes automatically; students just need to listen to classes. Teachers respective to all the departments will be identified using an RFID reader and notes are maintained as a database. At the end of the day, the notes are sent as mail to students who are absent from classes. Thereby by the concept of the smart classroom, we can emphasize learning the concepts which lead to innovative and interactive learning sessions ultimately enhancing the performance.

159. Proper balance of direct response marketing and brand marketing for product and brand dominance in current market

As the market place has emerged from small scale to a global scale it has also resulted in products and services of similar nature and requirements to come up in the same environment as geographical factors and economical factors had lesser impact on them as market kept developing. The concept of global village or globalization resulted in brands and companies to spread over the globe, as the factors like transporting the goods or providing services to far away destinations were not as big a concern for them anymore due to the advancements in technology in every aspect like that of transport and communication. This bridged the gap in the market which was observed in the early time. Products which were manufactured in one corner of the world were easily available in the other corner of the world alongside the products of the companies present there. This resulted in saturating the market environment and making it competitive. In such scenarios marketing tools become the important tools to distinguish and separate one product or service from other in the same market bubble. Direct Marketing and Brand Marketing emerged as the two big pillars of marketing campaigns. The objective of direct marketing was to establish direct channels of communication with the consumers and convince them of their supremacy in the market like Google, Apple, etc. Whereas the objective of Brand marketing was to establish the brand as a name for itself in the market which resonated the ideas of reliability and customer satisfaction for those who were related to the brand name or those who were customers for the same like PVR cinema, TATA, etc. This paper has two aspect to it, first is the understanding of Direct Response Marketing and Brand Marketing and the other aspect is the proper utilization of both the tools in the designing of a marketing campaign for a product or a service provided by a company.

161. Platform to improve the reachability of web based advertisement

Advertisements are the messages that are intended to inform or influence the people who receive them. It is a paid announcement in a newspaper or on a television or on a poster about a product, event, or a job. In olden day advertisement was carried out by printing messages in the bronze plate, and by painting in-wall or rock and by campaigning. After that, it was carried out in the billboards, flyers or pamphlets, television, newspaper, radio, etc. In recent years traditional advertisement is getting changed into a web-based advertisement. It is the type of advertisement that uses the internet to deliver promotional marketing messages to consumers. It is very important to get the attraction of the customer. This project focuses on improving the reachability of that advertisement in a cost-efficient manner. This platform allows the user to post their advertisement on a different website. In turn, it will generate the report through which the user can identify the best place to get a better response from the social media, e-commerce, etc.

162. Weather prediction using Machine Learning

The burgeoning research in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning has given rise to numerous weather prediction models. But the problem of accurately predicting or forecasting the weather persists. Numerical weather prediction is taking the existing numerical data on weather conditions and applying machine learning algorithms to forecast the weather. This paper is the application of machine learning algorithm-decision Tree to predict the weather based on a few parameters such as temperature, pressure, humidity. Using the stepwise regression process along with the decision tree, weather forecasting is achieved.

163. Design and fabrication of ceiling fan

The project runs on the concept that when electric generator rotates at some appropriate speed it produces electricity. So, here we proposed a device that can be assembled to a system which has rotary motion and produces electricity. The idea behind it was to give relief to farmers by using the same rotary motion of the water pump and generate the electricity by using the device and charge the battery so that during the cut-off of electricity we can run the pump using the same electricity. So to show the device will work, here we made the device which is fixed with the fan and due to the rotary motion of the fan, the device generates the electricity and charge the battery and can use that stored electricity again when required. So, this will give little bit relief to the farmers if more research is done on it, but this device can be very useful in homes as it connects to fan it can generate a sufficient amount of electricity on which one can use led light bulbs which will reduce the electricity consumption. This will help in completing the need of electricity of all. The fan rotates at 300 rpm at normal and when we attach our device it rotates at the speed of 275 rpm and simultaneously produces 9.87 volts which can be used to run other appliances which we need to run on electricity.
