Studies have shown that obstetrical complications during one's birth play significant roles in the development of schizophrenia in one's lifetime especially in males. Hence, schizophrenia needs careful management practice from one's birth. This paper argues that schizophrenia needs to be treated as a collaborative process and as a result, the 'awareness' and 'knowledge-sharing' capability of various roles involved in the management process need to be addressed explicitly. This paper proposes high-level specification of a novel methodology for identifying and evaluating the level of awareness required by these roles for 'at risk' schizophrenics throughout their lives. The authors have both applied and validated a collaborative management approach and an associated analytical tool called the Awareness Information Net (AIN) model to assist in maintaining awareness capabilities among various roles involved in the management of schizophrenics. The ultimate goal of the current study is to develop conceptual foundation for an automated workflow management system for a collaborative management process for schizophrenia.

The effects of different operating parameters such as initial pH, initial Pb(II) ion concentration, adsorbent dosages, and contact time are studied to optimize the conditions for maximum batch adsorptive removal of Pb(II) ions from aqueous solution using six different low cost natural bio-sorbents. Applicability of artificial neural network (ANN) analysis is investigated for the removal of Pb(II). Three standard training algorithms (Backpropagation, Levenberg-Marquardt and Scaled Conjugate Gradient) along with four different standard transfer functions in a hidden layer with a linear transfer function in the output layer are used for the analysis. Statistical analysis show that the ANN model with a BP algorithm, using transfer function 1 and 25 processing elements in a single hidden layer gives best predictability of the percentage removal of Pb(II) ions from aqueous solutions. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

This paper presents a novel optimization algorithm for environmentally constrained economic dispatch (ECED) problem using modified real coded genetic algorithm (MRCGA). The ECED problem is formulated as a non-linear constrained multi-objective optimization dilemma satisfying both equality and inequality constraints. The regenerating population procedure is added to the conventional RCGA in order to improve escaping the local minimum solution by a new combination of crossover and mutation technique. To solve ECED problem the predictable RCGA is customized specially by the concept of self adaptation of mutation distribution followed by polynomial mutation approach with arithmetic crossover. To test performance compatibility between them, a six units system is being considered and the better simulation results produce improved solution compare to different methods. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.

Optimal reactive power compensation is one of the fundamental issues in the operation of power systems. This paper presents a new improved particle swarm optimization technique called black-hole particle swarm optimization (BHPSO) for optimal reactive power compensation of distribution feeders to avoid premature convergence. The performance of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated on a sample test system. The results obtained by the proposed methods are compared with other methods. The results show that the proposed technique is capable of producing comparable results. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.

Accurate grading of depression is a research challenge. It is important to decide on the treatment plans. This paper proposes a depression classification model using Bayesian approach. In order to achieve this task, 302 real-world depression cases have been collected and used to develop the initial model where the number of symptoms equals to 15 for each case. The load of symptoms is quantified [0, 1] by specialist doctors (psychiatrists) to measure the cumulative grade of the illness, which is labeled as 'Mild/Low,' 'Moderate/Medium,' and 'Severe/High.' In order to reduce the data dimension and extracting significant factors, Paired t-test (PTT), Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Multiple Linear Regressions (MLR), Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Factor Analysis (FA) is performed. All these techniques are tried because we have no prior idea which would effectively serve the purpose. After rigorous experiments, it is noted that 4 symptoms are found significant (p value < 0.05) using PTT. It reduces the data matrix from 302 x 15 to 302 x 4. It helps reducing the complexity in the intended classifier design. At first a Naïve Baye's classifier is designed. It can only grade depression with 19% accuracy. Hence, it is further trained using Hill Climbing Search (HCS) algorithm to develop a Learned Bayesian Classifier. Throughout the design and developmental processes, 70% of the data has been used for training and the rest tests the classifier's performance. Experimental results show that the average accuracy achieved by the learned classifier is close to 80%. Copyright © 2013 American Scientific Publishers All rights reserved.

Diagnoses of psychiatric diseases are still a major issue. Two key reasons are-there are variations in the opinions of the medical doctors and the presentation of a disease among the subjects. Given this scenario, the focus of this paper is to develop a hybrid approach for diagnosing adult depression (302 × 16), where each case is represented with 15 symptoms [0, 1] and the corresponding target (that is, grade-probability as 'mild,' 'moderate,' and 'severe'). The proposed hybrid tool is consisted of (a) information gain measure of each symptom/attribute to find the dominant symptoms and (b) a multilayer feedforward-backpropagation neural network, which has been fed with the (i) dominant symptoms and (ii) all symptoms as the inputs to compare its performance. The study observes that with dominant symptoms, the tool is able to classify depression with 98.96% average accuracy, compared to all symptoms, where the average accuracy is 98.91%. The paper concludes that attribute selection procedure based on decision tree learning has increased the efficiency of the tool. © 2013 American Scientific Publishers.

This paper attempts to mine important predisposing risk factors of heart attack from a sample of 300 real-world cases, each having 12 predisposing factors. Initially ranking of the factors are made according to the medical doctors. According to the risk level (i.e. mild, moderate, and severe) the sample has been clustered using Divisive Hierarchical Clustering (DHC) techniques with 'single', 'average', and 'complete' linkages. It also observes that High Blood Cholesterol (HBC), Intake of Alcohol (IA), and Passive Smoking (PS) play the most crucial role on 'severe', 'moderate' and 'mild' cardiac risks, respectively, which matches the result of Andrews plot. The study also observes that 'males' with age group of 48-60 years (mean age 53.45 years) are more prone to suffer 'severe' and 'moderate' heart attack risk, while females over 50 years (mean 53.23 years) are affected mostly with 'mild' risk.

This paper is a novel attempt to model a perception process in the diagnosis of depression. In order to do so, two Fuzzy Clustering Techniques (FCT), such as Fuzzy C-means (FCM) and Fuzzy k-Nearest Neighbour (FkNN) are applied. Both the techniques have a special parameter called as 'cluster fuzzifier' (m), which determines the degree of fuzziness between any two clusters. Hence, by varying 'm', one can manipulate the partition between the clusters. Thus, appropriate tuning of 'm' is critical to obtain the desired number of good quality clusters. The paper proposes that 'm' mathematically mimics doctors' diagnostic perceptions, which needs to be tuned appropriately for making a correct diagnosis, i.e. assigning appropriate class labels of depression. Having proposed this, the paper examines how 'm' influences the clustering task, on a sample of real-world depression cases. © 2013 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
