TL;DR: The proposed hybrid security model for securing the diagnostic text data in medical images proved its ability to hide the confidential patient’s data into a transmitted cover image with high imperceptibility, capacity, and minimal deterioration in the received stego-image.
Abstract: Due to the significant advancement of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the healthcare sector, the security, and the integrity of the medical data became big challenges for healthcare services applications. This paper proposes a hybrid security model for securing the diagnostic text data in medical images. The proposed model is developed through integrating either 2-D discrete wavelet transform 1 level (2D-DWT-1L) or 2-D discrete wavelet transform 2 level (2D-DWT-2L) steganography technique with a proposed hybrid encryption scheme. The proposed hybrid encryption schema is built using a combination of Advanced Encryption Standard, and Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman algorithms. The proposed model starts by encrypting the secret data; then it hides the result in a cover image using 2D-DWT-1L or 2D-DWT-2L. Both color and gray-scale images are used as cover images to conceal different text sizes. The performance of the proposed system was evaluated based on six statistical parameters; the peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), mean square error (MSE), bit error rate (BER), structural similarity (SSIM), structural content (SC), and correlation. The PSNR values were relatively varied from 50.59 to 57.44 in case of color images and from 50.52 to 56.09 with the gray scale images. The MSE values varied from 0.12 to 0.57 for the color images and from 0.14 to 0.57 for the gray scale images. The BER values were zero for both images, while SSIM, SC, and correlation values were ones for both images. Compared with the state-of-the-art methods, the proposed model proved its ability to hide the confidential patient’s data into a transmitted cover image with high imperceptibility, capacity, and minimal deterioration in the received stego-image.

TL;DR: Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed feature selection method effectively reduces the dimensions of the dataset and achieves superior classification accuracy using the selected features.
Abstract: Data from many real-world applications can be high dimensional and features of such data are usually highly redundant. Identifying informative features has become an important step for data mining to not only circumvent the curse of dimensionality but to reduce the amount of data for processing. In this paper, we propose a novel feature selection method based on bee colony and gradient boosting decision tree aiming at addressing problems such as efficiency and informative quality of the selected features. Our method achieves global optimization of the inputs of the decision tree using the bee colony algorithm to identify the informative features. The method initializes the feature space spanned by the dataset. Less relevant features are suppressed according to the information they contribute to the decision making using an artificial bee colony algorithm. Experiments are conducted with two breast cancer datasets and six datasets from the public data repository. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method effectively reduces the dimensions of the dataset and achieves superior classification accuracy using the selected features.

TL;DR: A new model to optimize virtual machines selection in cloud-IoT health services applications to efficiently manage a big amount of data in integrated industry 4.0 applications is proposed and outperforms on the state-of-the-art models in total execution time and the system efficiency.
Abstract: Over the last decade, there has been an increasing interest in big data research, especially for health services applications. The adoption of the cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm in the healthcare field can bring several opportunities to medical IT, and experts believe that it can significantly improve healthcare services and contribute to its continuous and systematic innovation in a big data environment such as Industry 4.0 applications. However, the required resources to manage such data in a cloud-IoT environment are still a big challenge. Accordingly, this paper proposes a new model to optimize virtual machines selection (VMs) in cloud-IoT health services applications to efficiently manage a big amount of data in integrated industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 applications require to process and analyze big data, which come from different sources such as sensor data, without human intervention. The proposed model aims to enhance the performance of the healthcare systems by reducing the stakeholders’ request execution time, optimizing the required storage of patients’ big data and providing a real-time data retrieval mechanism for those applications. The architecture of the proposed hybrid cloud-IoT consists of four main components: stakeholders’ devices, stakeholders’ requests (tasks), cloud broker and network administrator. To optimize the VMs selection, three different well-known optimizers (Genetic Algorithm (GA), Particle swarm optimizer (PSO) and Parallel Particle swarm optimization (PPSO) are used to build the proposed model. To calculate the execution time of stakeholders’ requests, the proposed fitness function is a composition of three important criteria which are CPU utilization, turn-around time and waiting time. A set of experiments were conducted to provide a comparative study between those three optimizers regarding the execution time, the data processing speed, and the system efficiency. The proposed model is tested against the state-of-the-art method to evaluate its effectiveness. The results show that the proposed model outperforms on the state-of-the-art models in total execution time the rate of 50%. Also, the system efficiency regarding real-time data retrieve is significantly improved by 5.2%.
TL;DR: An intelligent model based on the Genetic Algorithm to organize bank lending decisions in a highly competitive environment with a credit crunch constraint (GAMCC), which provides a framework to optimize bank objectives when constructing the loan portfolio.
Abstract: The bank lending decisions in credit crunch environments are big challenge.This NP-hard optimization problem is solved using a proposed GA based model.The proposed model is tested using two scenarios with simulated and real data.The real data is collected from Southern Louisiana Credit Union.The proposed model increased the bank profit and improved the system performance. To avoid the complexity and time consumption of traditional statistical and mathematical programming, intelligent techniques have gained great attention in different financial research areas, especially in banking decisions optimization. However, choosing optimum bank lending decisions that maximize the bank profit in a credit crunch environment is still a big challenge. For that, this paper proposes an intelligent model based on the Genetic Algorithm (GA) to organize bank lending decisions in a highly competitive environment with a credit crunch constraint (GAMCC). GAMCC provides a framework to optimize bank objectives when constructing the loan portfolio, by maximizing the bank profit and minimizing the probability of bank default in a search for a dynamic lending decision. Compared to the state-of-the art methods, GAMCC is considered a better intelligent tool that enables banks to reduce the loan screening time by a range of 12%50%. Moreover, it greatly increases the bank profit by a range of 3.9%8.1%.
