Abstract: The identification of shrimp organs in biology using
histological images is a complex task. Shrimp histological images
poses a big challenge due to their texture and similarity among
classes. Image classification by using feature engineering and
convolutional neural networks (CNN) are suitable methods to
assist biologists when performing organ detection. This work
evaluates the Bag-of-Visual-Words (BOVW) and Pyramid-Bagof-
Words (PBOW) models for image classification leveraging big
data techniques; and transfer learning for the same classification
task by using a pre-trained CNN. A comparative analysis
of these two different techniques is performed, highlighting
the characteristics of both approaches on the shrimp organs

Abstract: This paper proposes a novel approach to remove haze
degradations in RGB images using a stacked conditional
Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). It employs a triplet
of GAN to remove the haze on each color channel independently.
A multiple loss functions scheme, applied over a
conditional probabilistic model, is proposed. The proposed
GAN architecture learns to remove the haze, using as conditioned
entrance, the images with haze from which the clear
images will be obtained. Such formulation ensures a fast
model training convergence and a homogeneous model generalization.
Experiments showed that the proposed method
generates high-quality clear images.

Abstract: This paper proposes a stacked conditional Generative
Adversarial Network-based method for Near InfraRed
(NIR) imagery colorization. We propose a variant architecture
of Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) that uses multiple
loss functions over a conditional probabilistic generative model.
We show that this new architecture/loss-function yields better
generalization and representation of the generated colored IR
images. The proposed approach is evaluated on a large test
dataset and compared to recent state of the art methods using
Index Terms—Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Generative
Adversarial Network (GAN), Infrared Imagery colorization.

Abstract: This work describes an approximate reasoning
technique to deal with the non-linearity that occurs in the
stabilization of the pressure of anodic and cathodic gases of a
proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEM). The implementation
of a supervisory element in the stabilization of the pressure of the
PEM cell is described. The fuzzy supervisor is a reference
control, it varies the value of the reference given to the classic
low-level controller, Proportional – Integral – Derivative (PID),
according to the speed of change of the measured pressure and
the change in the error of the pressure. The objective of the fuzzy
supervisor is to achieve a rapid response over time of the variable
pressure, avoiding unwanted overruns with respect to the
reference value. A comparative analysis is detailed with the
classic PID control to evaluate the operation of the "fuzzy
supervisor", with different flow values and different sizes of
active area of the PEM cell (electric power generated).

Abstract: Business process models can be useful for requirements elicitation, among other things. Software development depends on the quality of the requirements elicitation activities, and so adequately modeling business processes (BPs) is critical. A key factor in achieving this is the active participation of all the stakeholders in the development of a shared vision of BPs.
Unfortunately, organizations often find themselves left with inconsistent BPs that do not cover all the stakeholders’ needs
and constraints. However, consolidation of the various stakeholder requirements may be facilitated through the use of multiple levels of abstraction (MLA). This article contributes to the research into MLA use in business process modeling (BPM) for software requirements by reviewing the theoretical foundations of MLA and their use in various BP-oriented approaches.

Abstract: Business process models (BPM) can be useful for requirements elicitation, among other uses. Since the active participation of all stakeholders is a key factor for successful requirements engineering, it is important that BPM be shared by all stakeholders. Unfortunately, organizations may end up with inconsistent BPM not covering all stakeholders’ needs and constraints. The use of multiple levels of abstraction (MLA), such as at the strategic, tactical and operational levels, is often used in various process-oriented initiatives to facilitate the consolidation of various stakeholders’ needs and constraints. This article surveys the use of MLA in recent BPM research publications and reports on a BPM action-research case study conducted in a Canadian organization, with the aim of exploring the usefulness of the strategic level.
