An Accurate Design Method of Wideband BPF Considering Frequency Dependence of Inverters
This paper presents a design method for a wideband bandpass filter (BPF) which compensates for frequency dependency based on the image admittance and image phase. In the proposed method, new compensation methods for the admittance and phase are integrated with the conventional method. The proposed method improves the frequency shift and reduces the unwanted bandwidth when designing more than 20% of the Fractional Bandwidth (FBW), whereas the conventional method exhibits frequency degradation at only 10% FBW. The proposed design theory was verified by applying it to both lumped elements and dis...

Text Classification on Social Network Platforms Based on Deep Learning Models
The natural language on social network platforms has a certain front-to-back dependency in structure, and the direct conversion of Chinese text into a vector makes the dimensionality very high, thereby resulting in the low accuracy of existing text classification methods. To this end, this study establishes a deep learning model that combines a big data ultra-deep convolutional neural network (UDCNN) and long short-term memory network (LSTM). The deep structure of UDCNN is used to extract the features of text vector classification. The LSTM stores historical information to extract the context ...

Comparison of the Effect of Interpolation on the Mask R-CNN Model
Recently, several high-performance instance segmentation models have used the Mask R-CNN model as a baseline, which reached a historical peak in instance segmentation in 2017. There are numerous derived models using the Mask R-CNN model, and if the performance of Mask R-CNN is improved, the performance of the derived models is also anticipated to improve. The Mask R-CNN uses interpolation to adjust the image size, and the input differs depending on the interpolation method. Therefore, in this study, the performance change of Mask R-CNN was compared when various interpolation methods were appli...

SSD PCB Component Detection Using YOLOv5 Model
The solid-state drive (SSD) possesses higher input and output speeds, more resistance to physical shock, and lower latency compared with regular hard disks; hence, it is an increasingly popular storage device. However, tiny components on an internal printed circuit board (PCB) hinder the manual detection of malfunctioning components. With the rapid development of artificial intelligence technologies, automatic detection of components through convolutional neural networks (CNN) can provide a sound solution for this area. This study proposes applying the YOLOv5 model to SSD PCB component detecti...

Information Security on Learning Management System Platform from the Perspective of the User during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Information security breach is a major risk in e-learning. This study presents the potential information security disruptions in Learning Management Systems (LMS) from the perspective of users. We use the Technology Acceptance Model approach as a user perception model of information security, and the results of a questionnaire comprising 44 questions for instructors and students across Indonesia to verify the model. The results of the data analysis and model testing reveals that lecturers and students perceive the level of information security in the LMS differently. In general, the informatio...

Implementation of a Sightseeing Multi-function Controller Using Neural Networks
This study constructs various scenarios required for landscape lighting; furthermore, a large-capacity general-purpose multi-functional controller is designed and implemented to validate the operation of the various scenarios. The multi-functional controller is a large-capacity general-purpose controller composed of a drive and control unit that controls the scenarios and colors of LED modules and an LED display unit. In addition, we conduct a computer simulation by designing a control system to represent the most appropriate color according to the input values of the temperature, illuminance,...

Optimization for Large-Scale n-ary Family Tree Visualization
The family tree is one of the key elements of humanities classics research and is very important for accurately understanding people or families. In this paper, we introduce a method for automatically generating a family tree using information on interpersonal relationships (IIPR) from the Korean Classics Database (KCDB) and visualize interpersonal searches within a family tree using data-driven document JavaScript (d3.js). To date, researchers of humanities classics have wasted considerable time manually drawing family trees to understand people’s influence relationships. An automatic famil...

Imputation Method Using Local Linear Regression Based on Bidirectional k-nearest-components
This paper proposes an imputation method using a bidirectional k-nearest components search based local linear regression method. The bidirectional k-nearest-components search method selects components in the dynamic range from the missing points. Unlike the existing methods, which use a fixed-size window, the proposed method can flexibly select adjacent components in an imputation problem. The weight values assigned to the components around the missing points are calculated using local linear regression. The local linear regression method is free from the rank problem in a matrix of dependent ...

Emotional Correlation Test from Binary Gender Perspective using Kansei Engineering Approach on IVML Prototype
This study examines the response of users' feelings from a gender perspective toward interactive video mobile learning (IVML). An IVML prototype was developed for the Android platform allowing users to install and make use of the app for m-learning purposes. This study aims to measure the level of feelings toward the IVML prototype and examine the differences in gender perspectives, identify the most responsive feelings between male, and female users as prominent feelings and measure the correlation between user-friendly feeling traits as an independent variable in accordance with gender attri...

Implementation and Evaluation of Harmful-Media Filtering Techniques using Multimodal-Information Extraction
Video platforms, including YouTube, have a structure in which the number of video views is directly related to the publisher’s profits. Therefore, video publishers induce viewers by using provocative titles and thumbnails to garner more views. The conventional technique used to limit such harmful videos has low detection accuracy and relies on follow-up measures based on user reports. To address these problems, this study proposes a technique to improve the accuracy of filtering harmful media using thumbnails, titles, and audio data from videos. This study analyzed these three pieces of ...

Performance Evaluation of a Feature-Importance-based Feature Selection Method for Time Series Prediction
Various machine-learning models may yield high predictive power for massive time series for time series prediction. However, these models are prone to instability in terms of computational cost because of the high dimensionality of the feature space and nonoptimized hyperparameter settings. Considering the potential risk that model training with a high-dimensional feature set can be time-consuming, we evaluate a feature-importance-based feature selection method to derive a tradeoff between predictive power and computational cost for time series prediction. We used two machine learning techniqu...

Phase Differences Averaging (PDA) Method for Reducing the Phase Error in Digital Holographic Microscopy (DHM)
Digital holographic microscopy (DHM) is a three-dimensional (3D) imaging technique that uses the phase information of coherent light. In the reconstruction process of DHM, a narrow region around the positive or negative sideband from the Fourier domain is windowed to avoid noise due to the DC spectrum of the hologram spectrum. However, the limited size of the window also degrades the high-frequency information of the 3D object profile. Although a large window can have more detailed information of the 3D object shape, the noise is increased. To solve this trade-off, we propose phase difference ...

Human Detection using Real-virtual Augmented Dataset
This paper presents a study on how augmenting semi-synthetic image data improves the performance of human detection algorithms. In the field of object detection, securing a high-quality data set plays the most important role in training deep learning algorithms. Recently, the acquisition of real image data has become time consuming and expensive; therefore, research using synthesized data has been conducted. Synthetic data haves the advantage of being able to generate a vast amount of data and accurately label it. However, the utility of synthetic data in human detection has not yet been demon...
