Constructing Efficient Regional Hazardous Weather Prediction Models through Big Data Analysis
Lee, Jaedong ; Lee, Jee-Hyong ;
International Journal of Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems, volume 16, issue 1, 2016, Pages 1~12
DOI : 10.5391/IJFIS.2016.16.1.1
In this paper, we propose an approach that efficiently builds regional hazardous weather prediction models based on past weather data. Doing so requires finding the proper weather attributes that strongly affect hazardous weather for each region, and that requires a large number of experiments to build and test models with different attribute combinations for each kind of hazardous weather in each region. Using our proposed method, we reduce the number of experiments needed to find the correct weather attributes. Compared to the traditional method, our method decreases the number of experiments by about 45%, and the average prediction accuracy for all hazardous weather conditions and regions is 79.61%, which can help forecasters predict hazardous weather. The Korea Meteorological Administration currently uses the prediction models given in this paper.

Kim, A-Ram ; Rhee, Sang-Yong ; Jang, Hyeon-Woong ;
International Journal of Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems, volume 16, issue 1, 2016, Pages 13~20
DOI : 10.5391/IJFIS.2016.16.1.13
In this study, we propose a method to regulate parking violations using computer vision technology. A still color image of the parked vehicle under question is obtained by a camera mounted on enforcement vehicles. The acquired image is preprocessed through a morphological algorithm and binarized. The vehicle`s shadows are detected from the binarized image, and lanes are identified using the information from the yellow parking lines that are drawn on the load. Whether parking is illegal is determined by the conformity of the lanes and the vehicle`s shadow.

Canine cataract is developed with aging and can cause the blindness or surgical treatment if not treated timely. The first observation must be made by pet owners but they do not have proper equipment and knowledge to see the abnormalities. In this paper, we propose an intelligent image processing method to extract canine cataract suspicious object from non-professional equipment such as ordinary digital camera and cellular phone photographs so that even casual owners of pet dog can make a pre-diagnosis of such a surgery-needed disease as soon as possible. The experiment shows that the proposed method is successful in most cases except the dog has similar colored hair to the color of cataract.

Lee, Hansoo ; Kim, Sungshin ;
International Journal of Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems, volume 16, issue 1, 2016, Pages 27~35

Black-box classifiers, such as artificial neural network and support vector machine, are a popular classifier because of its remarkable performance. They are applied in various fields such as inductive inferences, classifications, or regressions. However, by its characteristics, they cannot provide appropriate explanations how the classification results are derived. Therefore, there are plenty of actively discussed researches about interpreting trained black-box classifiers. In this paper, we propose a method to make a fuzzy logic-based classifier using extracted rules from the artificial neural network and support vector machine in order to interpret internal structures. As an object of classification, an anomalous propagation echo is selected which occurs frequently in radar data and becomes the problem in a precipitation estimation process. After applying a clustering method, learning dataset is generated from clusters. Using the learning dataset, artificial neural network and support vector machine are implemented. After that, decision trees for each classifier are generated. And they are used to implement simplified fuzzy logic-based classifiers by rule extraction and input selection. Finally, we can verify and compare performances. With actual occurrence cased of the anomalous propagation echo, we can determine the inner structures of the black-box classifiers.

The transformation time among queries in the database management system (DBMS) is responsible for the execution time of users` queries, because a conventional DBMS does not consider the transformation cost when queries are transformed for execution. To reduce the transformation time (cost reduction) during execution, we propose an optimal query transformation method by exploring queries from a cost-based point of view. This cost-based point of view means considering the cost whenever queries are transformed for execution. Toward that end, we explore and compare set off heuristic, linear, and exhaustive cost-based transformations. Further, we describe practical methods of cost-based transformation integration and some query transformation problems. Our results show that, some cost-based transformations significantly improve query execution time. For instance, linear and heuristic transformed queries work 43% and 74% better than exhaustive queries.

Recently, artificial intelligence has reached the level of top information technologies that will have significant influence over many aspects of our future lifestyles. In particular, in the fields of machine learning technologies for classification and decision-making, there have been a lot of research efforts for solving estimation and control problems that appear in the various kinds of portfolio management problems via data-driven approaches. Note that these modern data-driven approaches, which try to find solutions to the problems based on relevant empirical data rather than mathematical analyses, are useful particularly in practical application domains. In this paper, we consider some applications of modern data-driven machine learning methods for portfolio management problems. More precisely, we apply a simplified version of the sparse Gaussian process (GP) classification method for classifying users` sensitivity with respect to financial risk, and then present two portfolio management issues in which the GP application results can be useful. Experimental results show that the GP applications work well in handling simulated data sets.
Effects of Global Capabilities of Small and Medium Businesses on Their Competitive Advantage and Business Management Performances
Kim, Sang-Dae ; Jeon, In-Oh ;
International Journal of Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems, volume 16, issue 1, 2016, Pages 52~58
DOI : 10.5391/IJFIS.2016.16.1.52
This paper categorized Korean small and medium businesses` global capabilities based on the preceding studies about the global capabilities and then, examined how their global capabilities would affect their competitive advantages and business management performances. As a result of testing the research model, it was found that the small and medium businesses` global capabilities had some significant effects on their competitive advantage (p<.001). On the other hand, the global capabilities had some positive effects on the business management performances and the mediating effects were significant (p>.05), which means that the competitive advantage has some mediating effects on the correlation between the global capabilities and the business management performances. Accordingly it was possible to analyze the correlation between global capabilities of small and medium businesses and their competitive advantage and thereby, provide for an opportunity to shift the paradigm of the global competition strategies.
Development of Efficient Encryption Scheme on Brain-Waves Using Five Phase Chaos Maps
Kim, Jung-Sook ; Chung, Jang-Young ;

Secondary damage to the user is a problem in biometrics. A brain-wave has no shape and a malicious user may not cause secondary damage to a user. However, if user sends brain-wave signals to an authentication system using a network, a malicious user could easily capture the brain-wave signals. Then, the malicious user could access the authentication system using the captured brain-wave signals. In addition, the dataset containing the brain-wave signals is large and the transfer time is long. However, user authentication requires a real-time processing, and an encryption scheme on brain-wave signals is necessary. In this paper, we propose an efficient encryption scheme using a chaos map and adaptive junk data on the brain-wave signals for user authentication. As a result, the encrypted brain-wave signals are produced and the processing time for authentication is reasonable in real-time.

This paper proposes nonlinear behavior in a love model for Romeo and Juliet with an external force of discontinuous time. We investigated the periodic motion and chaotic behavior in the love model by using time series and phase portraits with respect to some variable and fixed parameters. The computer simulation results confirmed that the proposed love model with an external force of discontinuous time shows periodic motion and chaotic behavior with respect to parameter variation.

Re-auction happens when a bid winner defaults on the payment without making second in-line purchase declaration even after determining sales permission. This is a process of selling under the court`s authority. Re-auctioning contract price of real estate is largely influenced by the real estate business, real estate value, and the number of bidders. This paper is designed to establish a statistical model that deals with the number of bidders participating especially in apartment re-auctioning. For these, diverse factors are taken into consideration, including ratio of minimum sales value from the point of selling to re-auctioning, number of bidders at the time of selling, investment value of the real estate, and so forth. As an attempt to consider ambiguous and vague factors, this paper presents a comparatively vague concept of real estate and bidders as trapezoid fuzzy number. Two different methods based on the least squares estimation are applied to fuzzy regression model in this paper. The first method is the estimating method applying substitution after obtaining the estimators of regression coefficients, and the other method is to estimate directly from the estimating procedure without substitution. These methods are provided in application for re-auction data, and appropriate performance measure is also provided to compare the accuracies.
