- ItemDetection of Benign and Malignant Tumors in Skin Empowered with Transfer Learning(Hindawi Limited, 2022) Ghazal, Taher M.; Hussain, Sajid; Khan, Muhammad Farhan; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Said, Raed A. T.; Ahmad, MunirSkin cancer is a major type of cancer with rapidly increasing victims all over the world. It is very much important to detect skin cancer in the early stages. Computer-developed diagnosis systems helped the physicians to diagnose disease, which allows appropriate treatment and increases the survival ratio of patients. In the proposed system, the classification problem of skin disease is tackled. An automated and reliable system for the classification of malignant and benign tumors is developed. In this system, a customized pretrained Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) is implemented. The pretrained AlexNet model is customized by replacing the last layers according to the proposed system problem. The softmax layer is modified according to binary classification detection. The proposed system model is well trained on malignant and benign tumors skin cancer dataset of 1920 images, where each class contains 960 images. After good training, the proposed system model is validated on 480 images, where the size of images of each class is 240. The proposed system model is analyzed using the following parameters: accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, Positive Predicted Values (PPV), Negative Predicted Value (NPV), False Positive Ratio (FPR), False Negative Ratio (FNR), Likelihood Ratio Positive (LRP), and Likelihood Ratio Negative (LRN). The accuracy achieved through the proposed system model is 87.1%, which is higher than traditional methods of classification. © 2022 Taher M.

- ItemEdge AI-Based Automated Detection and Classification of Road Anomalies in VANET Using Deep Learning(Hindawi Limited, 2021) Bibi, Rozi; Saeed, Yousaf; Zeb, Asim; Ghazal, Taher M.; Rahman, Taj; Said, Raed A.; Abbas, Sagheer; Ahmad, Munir; Khan, Muhammad AdnanRoad surface defects are crucial problems for safe and smooth traffic flow. Due to climate changes, low quality of construction material, large flow of traffic, and heavy vehicles, road surface anomalies are increasing rapidly. Detection and repairing of these defects are necessary for the safety of drivers, passengers, and vehicles from mechanical faults. In this modern era, autonomous vehicles are an active research area that controls itself with the help of in-vehicle sensors without human commands, especially after the emergence of deep learning (DNN) techniques. A combination of sensors and DNN techniques can be useful for unmanned vehicles for the perception of their surroundings for the detection of tracks and obstacles for smooth traveling based on the deployment of artificial intelligence in vehicles. One of the biggest challenges for autonomous vehicles is to avoid the critical road defects that may lead to dangerous situations. To solve the accident issues and share emergency information, the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) introduced the concept of vehicular network termed as vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) for achieving security and safety in a traffic flow. A novel mechanism is proposed for the automatic detection of road anomalies by autonomous vehicles and providing road information to upcoming vehicles based on Edge AI and VANET. Road images captured via camera and deployment of the trained model for road anomaly detection in a vehicle could help to reduce the accident rate and risk of hazards on poor road conditions. The techniques Residual Convolutional Neural Network (ResNet-18) and Visual Geometry Group (VGG-11) are applied for the automatic detection and classification of the road with anomalies such as a pothole, bump, crack, and plain roads without anomalies using the dataset from different online sources. The results show that the applied models performed well than other techniques used for road anomalies identification. © 2021 Rozi Bibi et al.
- ItemEnergy demand forecasting using fused machine learning approaches(Tech Science Press, 2022) Ghazal, Taher M.; Noreen, Sajida; Said, Raed A.; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Siddiqui, Shahan Yamin; Abbas, Sagheer; Aftab, Shabib; Ahmad, MunirThe usage of IoT-based smart meter in electric power consumption shows a significant role in helping the users to manage and control their electric power consumption. It produces smooth communication to build equitable electric power distribution for users and improved management of the entire electric system for providers. Machine learning predicting algorithms have been worked to apply the electric efficiency and response of progressive energy creation, trans-mission, and consumption. In the proposed model, an IoT-based smart meter uses a support vector machine and deep extreme machine learning techniques for professional energy management. A deep extreme machine learning approach applied to feature-based data provided a better result. Lastly, decision-based fusion applied to both datasets to predict power consumption through smart meters and get better results than previous techniques. The established model smart meter with automatic load control increases the effectiveness of energy management. The proposed EDF-FMLA model achieved 90.70 accuracy for predicting energy consumption with a smart meter which is better than the existing approaches. © 2022, Tech Science Press. All rights reserved.
- ItemEnergy-efficiency model for residential buildings using supervised machine learning algorithm(Tech Science Press, 2021) Aslam, Muhammad Shoukat; Ghazal, Taher M.; Fatima, Areej; Said, Raed A.; Abbas, Sagheer; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Siddiqui, Shahan Yamin; Ahmad, MunirThe real-time management and control of heating-system networks in residential buildings has tremendous energy-saving potential, and accurate load prediction is the basis for system monitoring. In this regard, selecting the appro-priate input parameters is the key to accurate heating-load forecasting. In existing models for forecasting heating loads and selecting input parameters, with an increase in the length of the prediction cycle, the heating-load rate gradually decreases, and the influence of the outside temperature gradually increases. In view of different types of solutions for improving buildings’ energy efficiency, this study proposed a Energy-efficiency model for residential buildings based on gradient descent optimization (E2B-GDO). This model can predict a building’s heating-load conservation based on a building energy performance dataset. The input layer includes area (distribution of the glazing area, wall area, and surface area), relative density, and overall elevation. The proposed E2B-GDO model achieved an accuracy of 99.98% for training and 98.00% for validation. © 2021, Tech Science Press. All rights reserved.
- ItemFeature optimization and identification of ovarian cancer using internet of medical things(John Wiley and Sons Inc, 2022) Ghazal, Taher M.; Taleb, NasserOvarian cancer (OC) is one kind of tumour that impacts women's ovaries and is hard to diagnose in the initial phase as a primary cause of cancer death. The ovarian cancer information generated by the Clinical Network has been used, and the Self Organizing Map (SOM) and Optimized Neural Networks have suggested a new method for the distinction between ovarian cancer and remaining cancer. Feature optimization and identification of the ovarian cancer (FOI-OV) framework are proposed in this research. The SOM algorithm has also been used separately to improve the functional subset, with understandable and intriguing information from participants' health information steps. The SOM-based collection appears to be tolerable in guided learning strategies due to the lack of different classifiers, which would direct the quest for knowledge specific to the classification algorithm. The classification technique will classify data from ovarian cancer as benign/malignant. By optimizing Neural Network configuration, Advanced Harmony Searching Optimization (AHSO) can enhance the ovarian cancer detection method compared with other methods. This research's suggested model can also diagnose cancer with high precision, and low root means square error (RMSE) early. With 94% precision and 0.029%, RMSE, SOM, and NN techniques have shown identification and precision in ovarian cancer. Optimization (AHSO) has provided an efficient classification approach with a better failure rate. © 2022 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
- ItemAn iomt-enabled smart healthcare model to monitor elderly people using machine learning technique(Hindawi Limited, 2021) Khan, Muhammad Farrukh; Ghazal, Taher M.; Said, Raed A.; Fatima, Areej; Abbas, Sagheer; Khan, M.A.; Issa, Ghassan F.; Ahmad, Munir; Khan, Muhammad AdnanThe Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) enables digital devices to gather, infer, and broadcast health data via the cloud platform. The phenomenal growth of the IoMT is fueled by many factors, including the widespread and growing availability of wearables and the ever-decreasing cost of sensor-based technology. The cost of related healthcare will rise as the global population of elderly people grows in parallel with an overall life expectancy that demands affordable healthcare services, solutions, and developments. IoMT may bring revolution in the medical sciences in terms of the quality of healthcare of elderly people while entangled with machine learning (ML) algorithms. The effectiveness of the smart healthcare (SHC) model to monitor elderly people was observed by performing tests on IoMT datasets. For evaluation, the precision, recall, fscore, accuracy, and ROC values are computed. The authors also compare the results of the SHC model with different conventional popular ML techniques, e.g., support vector machine (SVM), K-nearest neighbor (KNN), and decision tree (DT), to analyze the effectiveness of the result. © 2021 Muhammad Farrukh Khan et al.
- ItemModeling habit patterns using conditional reflexes in agency(Tech Science Press, 2021) Khan, Qura-Tul-Ain; Ghazal, Taher M.; Abbas, Sagheer; Khan, Wasim Ahmad; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Said, Raed A.; Ahmad, Munir; Asif, MuhammadFor decision-making and behavior dynamics in humans, the principal focus is on cognition. Cognition can be described using cognitive behavior, which has multiple states. This cognitive behavior can be incorporated with one of the internal mental states’ help, which includes desires, beliefs, emotions, intentions, different levels of knowledge, goals, skills, etc. That leads to habit development. Habits are highly refined patterns formed in the unconscious that evolve from conscious skill patterns in the human, and the same process can be implemented in the agency. These habit patterns are the outcomes of many internal values that may vary due to variations in parameter values forming these patterns. Fluctuations in the individual agent’s conditional reflexes may subject to strong habit patterns and leads to rationality. This paper presents the modeling of habit patterns in agency using conditional reflexes. Learning patterns, limited reflex patterns, skill patterns are working as main parameters for generating habit patterns. These input and output parameters will be validated using a scenario by applying fuzzy logic cascade techniques in which validation occurs at two levels. At the first level, conditional reflexes and initial patterns are applied, which form the output’s skill patterns. Then these skill patterns are interconnected with each other to form habit patterns. © 2021, Tech Science Press. All rights reserved.
- ItemPerformances of k-means clustering algorithm with different distance metrics(Tech Science Press, 2021) Ghazal, Taher M.; Hussain, Muhammad Zahid; Said, Raed A.; Nadeem, Afrozah; Hasan, Mohammad Kamrul; Ahmad, Munir; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Naseem, Muhammad TahirClustering is the process of grouping the data based on their similar properties. Meanwhile, it is the categorization of a set of data into similar groups (clusters), and the elements in each cluster share similarities, where the similarity between elements in the same cluster must be smaller enough to the similarity between elements of different clusters. Hence, this similarity can be considered as a distance measure. One of the most popular clustering algorithms is K-means, where distance is measured between every point of the dataset and centroids of clusters to find similar data objects and assign them to the nearest cluster. Further, there are a series of distance metrics that can be applied to calculate point-to-point distances. In this research, the K-means clustering algorithm is evaluated with three different mathematical metrics in terms of execution time with different datasets and different numbers of clusters. The results indicate that the implementation of Manhattan distance measure metrics achieves the best results in most cases. These results also demonstrate that distance metrics can affect the execution time and the number of clusters created by the K-means algorithm. © 2021, Tech Science Press. All rights reserved.
- ItemPrediction of diabetes empowered with fused machine learning(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2022) Ahmed, Usama; Issa, Ghassan F.; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Aftab, Shabib; Khan, Muhammad Farhan; Said, Raed A. T.; Ghazal, Taher M.; Ahmad, MunirIn the medical field, it is essential to predict diseases early to prevent them. Diabetes is one of the most dangerous diseases all over the world. In modern lifestyles, sugar and fat are typically present in our dietary habits, which have increased the risk of diabetes. To predict the disease, it is extremely important to understand its symptoms. Currently, machine-learning (ML) algorithms are valuable for disease detection. This article presents a model using a fused machine learning approach for diabetes prediction. The conceptual framework consists of two types of models: Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN) models. These models analyze the dataset to determine whether a diabetes diagnosis is positive or negative. The dataset used in this research is divided into training data and testing data with a ratio of 70:30 respectively. The output of these models becomes the input membership function for the fuzzy model, whereas the fuzzy logic finally determines whether a diabetes diagnosis is positive or negative. A cloud storage system stores the fused models for future use. Based on the patient’s real-time medical record, the fused model predicts whether the patient is diabetic or not. The proposed fused ML model has a prediction accuracy of 94.87, which is higher than the previously published methods. Author
- ItemPrivacy-based framework for Cyber Resilience of Healthcare based data for use with Machine Learning algorithms(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2022) Sapra, Varun; Hasan, Mohammad Kamrul; Ghazal, Taher M.; Bhadrdwaj, Akashdeep; Bharany, Salil; Ahmad, Munir; Rehman, Ateeq Ur; Mohamed, Tamer
- ItemSingle and Mitochondrial Gene Inheritance Disorder Prediction Using Machine Learning(Tech Science Press, 2022) Nasir, Muhammad Umar; Khan, Muhammad Adnan; Zubair, Muhammad; Ghazal, Taher M.; Said, Raed A.; Hamadi, Hussam AlOne of the most difficult jobs in the post-genomic age is identifying a genetic disease from a massive amount of genetic data. Furthermore, the complicated genetic disease has a very diverse genotype, making it challenging to find genetic markers. This is a challenging process since it must be completed effectively and efficiently. This research article focuses largely on which patients are more likely to have a genetic disorder based on numerous medical parameters. Using the patient’s medical history, we used a genetic disease prediction algorithm that predicts if the patient is likely to be diagnosed with a genetic disorder. To predict and categorize the patient with a genetic disease, we utilize several deep and machine learning techniques such as Artificial neural network (ANN), K-nearest neighbors (KNN), and Support vector machine (SVM). To enhance the accuracy of predicting the genetic disease in any patient, a highly efficient approach was utilized to control how the model can be used. To predict genetic disease, deep and machine learning approaches are performed. The most productive tool model provides more precise efficiency. The simulation results demonstrate that by using the proposed model with the ANN, we achieve the highest model performance of 85.7%, 84.9%, 84.3% accuracy of training, testing and validation respectively. This approach will undoubtedly transform genetic disorder prediction and give a real competitive strategy to save patients’ lives. © 2022 Tech Science Press. All rights reserved.
- ItemSoftware defect prediction using ensemble learning: A systematic literature review(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2021) Matloob, Faseeha; Ghazal, Taher M.; Taleb, Nasser; Aftab, Shabib; Ahmad, Munir; Khan, Muhammad AdnanRecent advances in the domain of software defect prediction (SDP) include the integration of multiple classification techniques to create an ensemble or hybrid approach. This technique was introduced to improve the prediction performance by overcoming the limitations of any single classification technique. This research provides a systematic literature review on the use of the ensemble learning approach for software defect prediction. The review is conducted after critically analyzing research papers published since 2012 in four well-known online libraries: ACM, IEEE, Springer Link, and Science Direct. In this study, five research questions covering the different aspects of research progress on the use of ensemble learning for software defect prediction are addressed. To extract the answers to identified questions, 46 most relevant papers are shortlisted after a thorough systematic research process. This study will provide compact information regarding the latest trends and advances in ensemble learning for software defect prediction and provide a baseline for future innovations and further reviews. Through our study, we discovered that frequently employed ensemble methods by researchers are the random forest, boosting, and bagging. Less frequently employed methods include stacking, voting and Extra Trees. Researchers proposed many promising frameworks, such as EMKCA, SMOTE-Ensemble, MKEL, SDAEsTSE, TLEL, and LRCR, using ensemble learning methods. The AUC, accuracy, F-measure, Recall, Precision, and MCC were mostly utilized to measure the prediction performance of models. WEKA was widely adopted as a platform for machine learning. Many researchers showed through empirical analysis that features selection, and data sampling was necessary pre-processing steps that improve the performance of ensemble classifiers. © 2013 IEEE.
- ItemUnderstanding Dark Web: A Systematic Literature Review(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2022) Abdellatif, Tamer Mohamed; Said, Raed A.; Ghazal, Taher M.Web evolution and Web 2.0 social media tools facilitate communication and support the online economy. On the other hand, these tools are actively used by extremist, terrorist and criminal groups. These malicious groups use these new communication channels, such as forums, blogs and social networks, to spread their ideologies, recruit new members, market their malicious goods and raise their funds. They rely on anonymous communication methods that are provided by the new Web. This malicious part of the web is called the 'dark web'. Dark web analysis became an active research area in the last few decades, and multiple research studies were conducted in order to understand our enemy and plan for counteract. We have conducted a systematic literature review to identify the state-of-art and open research areas in dark web analysis. We have filtered the available research papers in order to obtain the most relevant work. This filtration yielded 28 studies out of 370. Our systematic review is based on four main factors: the research trends used to analyze dark web, the employed analysis techniques, the analyzed artifacts, and the accuracy and confidence of the available work. Our review results have shown that most of the dark web research relies on content analysis. Also, the results have shown that forum threads are the most analyzed artifacts. Also, the most significant observation is the lack of applying any accuracy metrics or validation techniques by most of the relevant studies. As a result, researchers are advised to consider using acceptance metrics and validation techniques in their future work in order to guarantee the confidence of their study results. In addition, our review has identified some open research areas in dark web analysis which can be considered for future research work. © 2022 IEEE.
- ItemUsing blockchain to ensure trust between donor agencies and ngos in under-developed countries(MDPI AG, 2021-08) Rehman, Ehsan; Khan, Muhammad Asghar; Soomro, Tariq Rahim; Taleb, Nasser; Afifi, Mohammad A.; Ghazal, Taher M.Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in under-developed countries are receiving funds from donor agencies for various purposes, including relief from natural disasters and other emergencies, promoting education, women empowerment, economic development, and many more. Some donor agencies have lost their trust in NGOs in under-developed countries, as some NGOs have been involved in the misuse of funds. This is evident from irregularities in the records. For instance, in education funds, on some occasions, the same student has appeared in the records of multiple NGOs as a beneficiary, when in fact, a maximum of one NGO could be paying for a particular beneficiary. Therefore, the number of actual beneficiaries would be smaller than the number of claimed beneficiaries. This research proposes a blockchain-based solution to ensure trust between donor agencies from all over the world, and NGOs in under-developed countries. The list of National IDs along with other keys would be available publicly on a blockchain. The distributed software would ensure that the same set of keys are not entered twice in this blockchain, preventing the problem highlighted above. The details of the fund provided to the student would also be available on the blockchain and would be encrypted and digitally signed by the NGOs. In the case that a record inserted into this blockchain is discovered to be fake, this research provides a way to cancel that record. A cancellation record is inserted, only if it is digitally signed by the relevant donor agency. © 2021 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.
