To facilitate the accurate identification of cancerous cells within the brain using MRI, deep learning and image classification techniques have been deployed. These technologies have paved the way for the development of automated tumor detection methods, which not only save valuable time for radiologists but also consistently deliver proven levels of accuracy. In contrast, the conventional approach to defect detection in magnetic resonance brain images relies on manual human inspection, a method rendered impractical due to the sheer volume of data This paper outlines an approach aimed at detecting and classifying brain tumors within patient MRI images. Additionally, it conducts a performance comparison of Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) models in this context.</p> F. Paulin P. Lakshmi Copyright (c) 2023 F. Paulin, P.

The objective of these endeavors is to propose new methods for encoding information sources like audio, images, and video in a manner that reduces the number of bits needed to represent the source content without noticeably compromising the quality. There is a necessity of the new methods that works by reducing the source data without significantly limiting the quality . This is the main intension of these works. In the recent, there has been a significant increase in image compression research, which corresponds with a noteworthy rise in the generation of digital data in the form of images. The objective is to preserve the vital information contained in an image while representing&nbsp; in the fewest possible bits.&nbsp;</p> P R Rajesh Kumar M Prabhakar Copyright (c) 2023 P R RAJESH KUMAR, M Prabhakar https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-12-27 2023-12-27 22 Special Issue 2 15 36 10.12723/mjs/sp2.2 MedicHub – Disease Detection Using Deep Learning https://journals.christuniversity.in/index.php/mapana/article/view/5003 <p>The integration of technology in healthcare is rapidly revolutionizing the sector and transforming the traditional modus operandi that used to be followed into a more efficient and accurate automated system. Machine Learning is a sophisticated technology used to analyze clinical symptoms to predict diseases and deliver accurate diagnoses based on strong evidence. The major advantage of using technology to assist in diagnosis is to understand more about<br />underlying illnesses that are often overlooked while searching for a more severe disease, or when the patient is not in imminent danger. This offers patients a very reliable and accessible alternative for immediate results and also minimizes the risk of errors. Another extremely good utility of technology is withinside the discipline of medical image analysis. CNN are neural networks which are capable of recognizing patterns in pictures and hence must be included in the system to increase its accuracy and efficacy.</p> Nilesh Patil Aaditya Gadiyar Darshan Mehta Harsh Khatri Copyright (c) 2023 Nilesh Patil, Aaditya Gadiyar, Darshan Mehta, Harsh Khatri https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 2023-12-27 2023-12-27 22 Special Issue 2 37 61 10.12723/mjs.sp2.3 Fuzzy Based Sentiment Classification Using Fuzzy Linguistic Hedges for Decision Making https://journals.christuniversity.in/index.php/mapana/article/view/5045 <p>Sentiment analysis is used to identify the attitude, opinions, and emotions of people towards a certain topic or entity. The goal of this paper is to develop a model to do sentiment classification of online product reviews using fuzzy linguistic hedges. The proposed model will be trained on a corpus of reviews, and will be able to classify reviews into a number of sentiment categories, such as positive, neutral, and negative. The proposed model will use fuzzy linguistic hedges to improve the accuracy of the sentiment analysis. The fuzzy linguistic hedges will be used to add context and nuance to the sentiment analysis, and will enable the model to better distinguish between subtle differences in sentiment.

This study suggests an additional ensemble model serving to give effective and speedy predictions and recommendations for crops. During the study data from nearly 8 distinct features was collected from various databases and 2201 instances were finalised. The data focussed on climatic conditions such as temperature, rainfall, crop type and soil features, particularly the ratio of nitrogen, potassium and levels of phosphorous. Research indicates that algorithms such as Neural Networks and XGBoost share high effectiveness and accuracy in developing crop yield prediction models. Extensive research conducted shows that the ensemble of XGBoost and MLP Classifier algorithms provide an accuracy of 99.39%. By predicting crop yield based on historical data, the study aims to give sound recommendations on the crops to be cultivated under various weather and soil conditions.</em></p> B. Subbulakshmi M. N.

IoT is used in many different ways, including smart agriculture, smart healthcare, smart retail, smart homes, smart cities, energy commitment, poultry and farming, smart water management, and other contemporary purposes. In the agricultural industry, man-animal conflict poses a serious problem where a huge amount of resources are lost and human life is put in danger. Due to this, farmers lose their crops, livestock, property, and even their lives. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly monitor this area to prevent the introduction of wild animals. This initiative offered a framework to monitor the situation in this regard. This is done by locating the invader in the area of the field by using a sensor, a camera<br />will then identify the animal, and a text message will be delivered to the farmer through GSM.</p> Karthik M.

The foremost challenge in classifying is with imbalanced data&nbsp; &nbsp;that have large portion data known to be majority class, and small portion known as minority class that leads to poor understanding of samples and less accurate results. The existing works discussed Random Upsampling, Random Downsampling, SMOTE methods individually with FeedForward Neural Network and found Random Oversampling gave better results&nbsp; .However, it generates more duplicate data and has less accuracy. Hence , this research work put forward Combined Random Over-Under Sampling approach that was preprocessed prior with Replacing Missing value with mean, Feature selection, Noise Filtering. Meanwhile this work extends the existing FeedForward Neural Network to Deep Learning .

The primary purpose of a vehicle detection system is to identify one or multiple vehicles within the input images and live video feed. The dataset is used to train image processing algorithms for tasks like detection and tracking. To pinpoint the defects and strength of each image processing system, assessment criteria are used to develop, train, test, and compare them. To recognize, track, and count the vehicle in images and videos, the image processing algorithms such as CNN YOLOv3 and SVM are implemented. The main goal and intention of this work is to develop a system that can intelligently identify and track automobiles in still images and moving movies. The results demonstrated that CNN-based YOLOv3 does a&nbsp; good job of detecting and tracking vehicles.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Jayamalar T N.

The most prevalent diseases and signs of health problems have been covered. The public' perceptions of health concerns and their causes are also examined. The study takes a qualitative method. The research is based on real- time data gathered from a poll of Anaikatti Village inhabitants.&nbsp; To analyse primary data, statistical techniques such as percentage analysis, descriptive statistics, and ANOVA are applied. The findings show that some areas of the neighbourhood have inadequate drinking water and sanitary care. Legislators and health-care practitioners, with the help of non-governmental organisations, must take adequate actions to ensure safe drinking water and sanitary facilities. Frequent health camps, free distribution of medications for common symptoms, actions to increase the nutritional content of food consumed and frequent doctor visits may improve overall health.&nbsp;</p> G.

Though the application of internet in the areas of healthcare is intensifying and the online pharmacies serve a good cause, it has not been used as extensively in India. In this study we have focused in detail about the reasons why online pharmacy is not used - from a sample size of 100 respondents and have found that it was because of the high risk of misuse of drugs especially where there are no governing online pharmacy laws, lack of awareness and poor logistics, we have also analysed the other challenges that are faced by the society while using the existing e-pharm apps.
