Problem of queue management has been a great barrier to the financial institutions. Another way of measuring efficiency in banking industries is how fast the service of saving and withdraw is been rendered. Imagine customers that spend the whole day in the banking hall for one service or the other, due to poor service delivery and long stay on the queue will not hesitate to change his bank. Data was collected by direct observation in two banks, one old generation bank and one new generation bank, queue model and other statistical tools were used to analyze the data. Result of the analysis shows that Guaranty Trust Bank is more efficient than First Bank in that the later has a prolonged service time attributed to the preference of it by a pool of customers for many reasons.[...] Read more.
In this paper, we have presented a new technique for solving scenario based multi-period stochastic programming problems and presented a case study for the business policy of a super shop market in Bangladesh. We have developed our technique based on decomposition based pricing method which is the latest and faster decomposition technique in use. To our knowledge, this is the first work in the field of stochastic programming for solving multi-period stochastic optimization problems by using decomposition based pricing method. We have also developed a model by collecting data of a year from a super shop market of Bangladesh and analyzed their profit by dividing the whole year into four periods for different scenarios of an uncertainty. We have developed a computer code by using mathematical programming language AMPL and analyzed the model by using our developed technique.[...] Read more.
Floating-point arithmetic operations on digital systems have become an important aspect of research in recent times. Many architecture have been proposed and implemented by various researchers and their merits and demerits are compared. Floating point numbers are first converted into the IEEE 754 single or double precision format in order to be used in the digital systems. The arithmetic operations require various steps to be followed for the correct and accurate steps. In the proposed approach a fast and area efficient Carry Select Adder are implemented along with the parallel processing of various units used in the architecture. The result also verifies the proposed approach that shows a decrement of 27 % in the combinational path delay with an increment of around 8% in the number of LUTs used.[...] Read more.
Computer security plays an important role in everybody's life. Therefore, to protect the computer and sensitive information from the untrusted parties have great significance. Intrusion detection system helps us to detect these malicious activities and sends the reports to the administration. But there is a problem of high false positive rate and low false negative rate. To eliminate these problems, hybrid system is proposed which is divided into two main parts. First, cluster the data using K-Mean algorithm and second, is to classify the train data using Adaptive-SVM algorithm. The experiments is carried out to evaluate the performance of proposed system is on NSL-KDD dataset. The results of proposed system clearly give better accuracy and low false positive rule and high false negative rate.[...] Read more.
In this paper, we propose an interaction based projection display system, which enables an infrared pen touch interaction on flat surface (e.g. walls, whiteboard, tables), with a webcam (with an infrared filter removed) and a projector. The challenge of infrared pen touch detection is to sense the touching and movement information of an infrared pen on the surface just from the 2-dimensional image captured by the webcam. In our method, the content of a computer is projected on the surface and the user interacts with the surface using an infrared pen, the movement of an infrared pen is captured by the webcam. Here, the infrared LED light act as a tracking point which helps in controlling the content projected on surface. The proposed method is performed in three stages: 1) the infrared pen LED image is captured and tracked using webcam 2) the calibration of webcam-projector setup is done by principle of Homography 3) the tracked coordinates or location of Infrared pen LED is mapped to computer cursor. By this way, movement of infrared pen allows user to control computer content projected on the surface.[...] Read more.
High costs of medical equipment and insufficient number of medical specialists have immensely contributed to the increment of death rate especially in rural areas of most developing countries. According to Roll Back Malaria there are 300 million acute cases of malaria per year worldwide, causing more than one million deaths. About 90% of these deaths happen in Africa, majorly in young children. Besides malaria when tested; a large number is coinfected with typhoid. Most often, symptoms of malaria and typhoid fevers do have common characteristics and clinicians do have difficulties in distinguishing them. For instance in Nigeria the existing diagnostic systems for malaria and typhoid in rural settlements are inefficient thereby making the result to be inaccurate and resulting to treatment of wrong ailments. Therefore in this paper, a predictive symptoms-based system for malaria and typhoid coinfection using Support Vector Machines (SVMs) is proposed for an improved classification results and the system is implemented using Microsoft Visual Basic 2013. Relatively high performance accuracy was achieved when tested on a reserved data set collected from a hospital. Hence the system will be of a great significant use in terms of affordable and quality health care services especially in rural settlement as an alternative and a reliable diagnostic system for the ailments.[...] Read more.
