1. Measuring Redundancy Score for Test Suite Evaluation by Using Test Cases Matching Approach

Mochamad Chandra Saputra, Tetsuro Katayama, Yoshihiro Kita, Hisaaki Yamaba, Kentaro Aburada, Naonobu Okazaki
Pages: 1 - 5
Evaluating a test suite that contains redundant test cases is necessary to reduce the cost of testing. The redundant test cases exist when both of the two test cases are executed the same lines of code. This research evaluates the test suite by identifying redundant test cases. Exact match approach is...

2. A Multi-agent Reinforcement Learning Method for Role Differentiation Using State Space Filters with Fluctuation Parameters

Masato Nagayoshi, Simon J. H. Elderton, Hisashi Tamaki
Pages: 6 - 9
Recently, there have been many studies on Multi-agent Reinforcement Learning (MARL) in which each autonomous agent obtains its own control rule by RL. Here, we hypothesize that different agents having individuality is more effective than uniform agents in terms of role differentiation in MARL. We have...

3. Human–Computer Communication Using Recognition and Synthesis of Facial Expression

Yasunari Yoshitomi
Pages: 10 - 13
To develop a complex computer system such as a robot that can communicate smoothly with humans, it is necessary to equip the system with a function for both understanding human emotions and expressing emotional signals. From both perspectives, facial expression is a promising research area. In our research,...

4. Generation of Cell-Like Images Using Euclidean Distance from Edge

Toru Hiraoka, Kohei Maeda
Pages: 14 - 17
A non-photorealistic rendering method has been proposed to generate cell-like images in which cell-like patterns are represented in photographic images. Cell-like patterns are automatically generated by the change of density of photographic images. However, cell-like patterns are irregularly arranged....

6. Measuring Test Suite Reusability Based on the Usage Frequency and Coverage of Reused Test Cases

Mochamad Chandra Saputra, Tetsuro Katayama, Yoshihiro Kita, Hisaaki Yamaba, Kentaro Aburada, Naonobu Okazaki
Pages: 24 - 28
Test suite reusability measurement is important to obtain the value of reusability as the degree of effectiveness of reused test suite. The measurement in this experiment considers not only the frequency of the successful test suite to examine different objects but also the code coverage as the criteria...

7. The Security Issue of ICS: The Use of IT Infrastructure

I-Hsien Liu, Kuan-Ming Su, Jung-Shian Li
Pages: 29 - 32
With the trend of Industry 4.0, the communication established by Ethernet is becoming more and more common in the Industrial Control System (ICS), and it brings not only pros but also cons like vulnerabilities from information technology. Furthermore, most devices in the ICS are not ready for cyberattacks,...

8. Decision System for Plural Production Lines Layout by Using GA

Hidehiko Yamamoto, Masato Noda, Hirohumi Tsuji, Yasuhisa Terawa, Yoshinori Nakamura, Masayuki Tsuchida, Katsuaki Yamada, Yukiyasu Kuriyama
Pages: 33 - 36
We develop the system to decide the efficient layout of assembly production line by using Genetic Algorithm (GA). We call the system as Decision System of Plural Production-lines-layout by GA (PPG). PPG decides the efficient layout of production line by using GA, work-flow-line acquired by Chameleon...

9. Design and Implementation of in-Home Real-Time Wireless Fever Monitoring in Pediatrics during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Ali S. Al-Mejrad
Pages: 37 - 40
Fever is one of the most common concern to be taken care by parents which sometimes force them to bring their children to the hospital emergency for continuous following up especially at night when sleeping. Fever is defined when the rectal temperature reaches over 38.0°C (100.4°F). Temperatures measured...

10. Anomaly Detection Using Support Vector Machines for Time Series Data

Umaporn Yokkampon, Sakmongkon Chumkamon, Abbe Mowshowitz, Ryusuke Fujisawa, Eiji Hayashi
Pages: 41 - 46
Analysis of large data sets is increasingly important in business and scientific research. One of the challenges in such analysis stems from uncertainty in data, which can produce anomalous results. This paper proposes a method for detecting an anomaly in time series data using a Support Vector Machine...

12. A Sub-Model Detachable Convolutional Neural Network

Ninnart Fuengfusin, Hakaru Tamukoh
Pages: 52 - 55
In this research, we propose a Convolutional Network with sub-Networks (CNSN), i.e., a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) or base-model that can be divided into sub-models on demand. The CNN architecture, entails that feature map shapes are varied throughout the model, therefore, the hidden layer within...
