An Expert System for Diabetes Diagnosis [Download Paper]

T. S Zeki, M. V Malakooti, Y. Ataeipoor and S.T Tabibi

Abstract— During the recent decades, expert systems has been developed in a vast level in all sectors of human life, in par- ticular the field of medicine. The main objective of this research was to design an expert system for diagnosis all types of diabe- tes. After data acquisition and designing a rule-based expert system, this system has been coded with VP_Expert Shell and tested in Shahid Hasheminezhad Teaching Hospital affiliated to Tehran University of Medical Sciences and final expert system has been presented. Findings of this research showed that in many parts of medical science and health care the expert systems have been used effectively. The acquisitive knowledge was represented in the diagrams, charts and tables. The related source code using of the expert system was given and after testing the system, finally its validation has been done. It has been con- cluded here the expert system can be used effectively in all areas of medical sciences. In particular, in terms of vast number di- abetics throughout the world, the expert system can be highly helpful for the patients. These patients in many cases are not aware of their disease and how to control it. In addition, some of these patients do not have access to the physicians during necessary times. Therefore, such a system can provide necessary information about the indications and diagnosis. Since this expert system gathers its knowledge from several medical specialists, the system has a broader scope and can be more helpful to the patients -- in comparison to just one physician.

Implementation of Graphical Equalizer using LabVIEW for DSP Kit DSK C6713 [Download Paper]

T Sreekanth Rao, B Prathyusha and P Nagarjuna Reddy 

Abstract— Digital signal processors plays an important role in fine tuning the sound system using Equalizers to overcome the acoustic problems. In digital communication, Graphical equalization techniques strengthen the successful provision of high speed and reliable data transmission over dispersive channels. The mentioned paper describes the development of equalizer for the digital signal processing (DSP) kit DSK C6713. Programming was done in ‘C’ language and compilation using code composer studio (CCS) integrated development environment using LabVIEW (Laboratory virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) as front end. Different Sliders are designed for different frequency bands, the performance of the Equalizer is observed by altering the gain of the frequencies in the specific bands while playing an audio signal.

Mobile Agent Model for Distributed Data Mining [Download Paper]

S.Kavitha, K.Senthil Kumar and Dr.KV. Arul Anandam

Abstract— This paper presents the managing of large-scale distributed system with the use of mobile agent concept in distributed environment. It is becoming an increasing challenging task. The primary goal is to ensure efficient use of resources, services of computer systems and networks and also provide timely services to the end-users. Mainly using mobile agent with decentralize processing and control in distributed resources is to minimize the network traffic related to management, provide more scalability, use of disconnected computing, speed up management tasks, provide more flexibility in the development and maintenance of the applications by distributing operations across resources. The problem is When the number of visited nodes grows, the mobile agent size also increases and making migration harder. One possible solution of this problem is to visit a fixed number of nodes, return to the agent home or send all data to it (reducing the mobile agent size), and start the task again on the remaining nodes. The initial size of a mobile agent also affects agent performance since the larger the size, the more difficult the migration.
