Mobile Phone Ranking by Analytical Hierarchical Process: A Case Study

By Kaustuv Deb Rudra Prasad Chatterjee Sonali Banerjee Rajib Bag Atanu Das

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2018

Mobile phones are one of the highly used gadgets now a day. These handheld devices serve multiple purposes through different available functionalities. Demand of services and functionalities vary with time and person concern. Before purchasing a new mobile phone, one has to judge specifications like functionalities, hardware capabilities and efficiencies available with the particular model of the device. We often find it difficult to identify or decide the best model among the available multiple alternatives by heuristics quick analysis of the specifications and prices.
This paper proposes a method for ranking mobile phone models based on Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP), one of the typically used mathematical models for Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) problems. The effectiveness of the proposed method is analyzed through a case study consisting of various sophisticated approaches based on AHP. A novice mobile phone buyer will be benefitted by the use of the proposed method incorporated through e-commerce sites.

An Efficient Embedding Technique in Image Steganography Using Lucas Sequence

By Prithwish Das Supriyo Ray Atanu Das

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Sep. 2017

Image steganography have been observed as one of the useful techniques to prevent unintended users to understand what information has been communicated over the network. Many crucial methods of image steganography include Discrete Cosine Transformation (DCT) based approaches. In this paper an efficient algorithm in image steganography is proposed extending DCT based approaches and incorporating number theory. The existing DCT algorithm is modified to increase randomness in the embedding technique with the help of Lucas sequence specifically. The effectiveness of the proposed method has been evaluated by computing Mean Square Error (MSE) and Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR). Results show that the proposed method has higher embedding capacity and increases a significant level of security by using Lucas sequence in addition to the advantages provided by existing DCT algorithm.

A Fuzzy Logic Approach to Assess Web Learner’s Joint Skills

By Mousumi Mitra Atanu Das

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Sep. 2015

Skill assessment is an important but complicated task in the entire web based teaching and learning process. The learner’s performance assessment has a strong influence on learners’ approaches to learn and their learning outcomes like professional acceptability on desired skills. Most educators focus either on assessing a learner’s technical skill set or non-technical skill set, individually, rather than focusing on both the aspects. This paper bridges the gap by applying fuzzy logic approach to analyze a learner’s joint skills incorporating both skills-set.
An already proven e-commerce website’s evaluation technique has been chosen and applied in two situations of learner’s skill assessment through case studies namely: technical skills evaluation, and non-technical skills evaluation. Experiments show that the learner’s success depends on both sets of skill attributes. This work then proposed a novel method for skill assessment considering two (instead of one) sets of skill attributes invoking parallel or joint application of the technique. This new technique has also been analysed through a case study.

A Relook and Renovation over State-of-Art Salt and Pepper Noise Removal Techniques

By Aritra Bandyopadhyay Shubhendu Banerjee Atanu Das Rajib Bag

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2015

Salt and pepper noise is a type of impulse noise, where certain amount of black and white dots appear in the image. The intensity is accumulated in 8 bit integer, giving 256 possible gray levels in the range (0 – 255).In this range salt and pepper noise takes either minimum or maximum intensity. Positive impulse appears as white (salt) points with intensity '255' and negative impulse appears as black (pepper) points with intensity '0' respectively. Salt and pepper noise removal is not an easy task mostly when noise density in the contaminated image is high and restoration of image quality is essential. Different filters like MF, SMF, AMF, PSMF, DBA, DBUTMF, and MDBUTMF and so on are noticed useful for taking away low, moderate and high density salt and pepper noise. The purpose of this paper is to present these filters first and then revise their art to enhance their performances and usefulness. The comparison shows that some of these filters are very fruitful in some particular noise density levels and hence classified applications on these situations are recommended based on the output of investigations.
