Special Issue on Big Data Analytics in Intelligent Systems

The amount of information that is being created, every day, is growing rapidly. As such, it is now more common than ever to deal with extremely large datasets daily. As systems develop and become more intelligent and adaptive, analyzing their behaviour is more challenging as the heterogeneity, volume and speed of data generation is increased. This is further exacerbated with the use of wireless networks, sensors, smartphones and the Internet. Such systems are capable of generating a phenomenal amount of information and the need to analyze their behaviour, to detect security anomalies is becoming harder.

Furthermore, securing such systems is a challenge. As threats evolve, so should security measures develop and adopt increasingly innovative security techniques. The future lies with combating cyber-attacks in an innovative way, where adaptive systems are employed and existing methods are built upon to provide well-structured defence in depth. Despite the clear need to develop effective protection methods, the task is a difficult one, as there are significant weaknesses in the existing security currently in place.

This special issue of the Journal of Computer Sciences and Applications, invites authors to submit papers presenting their research on the area of Big Data Analytics in Intelligent Systems.

Special Issue on The Glory of Database, Data Warehouse and Data Mining

Database as repository always needed in every computer/mobile application to save transaction and data recording purposes. Database as data reorganizing should be treated in a good manner and in the right hand database should be able to win the competition and get excellent services. Meanwhile, data warehouse as a technology to denormalized normalized database for both structured and unstructured database, has best performance in term of SQL statement execution when access denormalized database. Moreover, Big Data as new coming term has similarities with Data Warehouse since both maintain huge data, used for reporting and to organize both structured and unstructured database with implementation Hadoop including Map Reduce framework. Furthermore, Data Mining as a technology to mine the pattern, should need data warehouse or Big Data in order for excellent performance mining pattern process. It is the glory of Database, Data Warehouse and Data Mining as frontier technology which serve the human civilization. The glory of Database, Data Warehouse and Data Mining should be sustained and endured as long as there is human civilization, no matter what the term changing in the future.

Special Issue on Computer, Brain and Consciousness

Penrose and Hameroff have proposed an idea that the brain can attain high efficient quantum computation by functioning of microtubular structure of neurons in the cytoskelton of biological cells, including neurons of the brain. They have considered that the human brain is superior to conventional silicon processors. From the standpoint of quantum physics, the latest researches have presented many theories which show the extraordinary capability of brain functions, that lead to the possibility to realize the hyper computational system beyond the Turing machine, the mind-brain interface and nano-size robots with nano-brain architecture. In this sense, the true understanding of brain function, from both a theoretical and experimental point of view, is a very important theme of computer science which might lead to the true understanding of the problems of human consciousness and long-range biological coherence between living systems observed in a natural world. Recent researches also show the fundamental role that quantum vacuum plays in the physiology of living organisms and transmission of information, in particular as regards as brain functions and consciousness. The aim of this special issue it to explore and discuss the most novel and recent theoretical and experimental development about the subject of hyper computation, brain mechanism and the problem of consciousness; to review, comparing and contrasting different points of view; to propose and develop new approaches of scientific research, rapidly and effectively exchanging perspectives and to encourage new lines of research, possibility stimulating the interest of the new generation of researchers in this field.

About the issue

The scope of topics covered in the this issue include:

  • Quantum computation in the brain
  • Possibility to achieve nano-brain architecture and brain-like computers

Special Issue on Applicability of Soft Computing in NP Hard Problems

The solution of NP hard/ NP Complete problems is one of the most contentious issues in Computer Science. The NP problems are of two types namely decision problems and optimization problems. The NP Hard optimization problems have traditionally been dealt with via techniques like Dynamic algorithms, which are computationally inefficient. The need of the hour is to solve the problems in requisite time and at the same time appropriately deal with the PSpace issues. The special issue intends to explore the use of techniques like Cellular Automata and Diploid Genetic Algorithms in the above. The papers presenting the use of Genetic Algorithms, Neural networks, Fuzzy Logic etc., to solve such problems, are also encouraged provided that they present credible data and experimental results.

The special issue intends to be a pioneer in the use of the above techniques. The issue would serve two purposes. First is the applicability of a technique in solution of a particular problem and the second would be the handling of theoretical issues in the yet unexplored Soft Computing techniques. The issue also welcomes the papers pertaining to the PSapce and time complexity issues in the above problems.

The issue welcomes research papers, reviews and reports pertaing to the above topics.
