Global Smartphone Ownership, Internet Usage and It's Impacts on Humans

ABSTRACTSmartphones are nowadays becoming more acceptable due to many features it offers as compared to traditional mobile phones due to the clamor for a portable and faster means of communication. The rate at which the device is being acquired has resulted in significant increase in the number of mobile phone subscribers globally. Therefore, there is a need to ascertain the rate of smartphone acquisition and its effect on the number of people accessing the internet and the resultant impa...

General Design Procedure for Free and Open-Source Hardware for Scientific Equipment

Distributed digital manufacturing of free and open-source scientific hardware (FOSH) used for scientific experiments has been shown to in general reduce the costs of scientific hardware by 90–99%. In part due to these cost savings, the manufacturing of scientific equipment is beginning to move away from a central paradigm of purchasing proprietary equipment to one in which scientists themselves download open-source designs, fabricate components with digital manufacturing technology, and the...

State-of-the-art in artificial neural network applications: A survey

This is a survey of neural network applications in the real-world scenario. It provides a taxonomy of artificial neural networks (ANNs) and furnish the reader with knowledge of current and emerging trends in ANN applications research and area of focus for researchers. Additionally, the study presents ANN application challenges, contributions, compare performances and critiques methods. The study covers many applications of ANN techniques in various disciplines which include computing, science...

A genetic model for Test Data Generation

The use of metaheuristic search technique for generation of test data has been a burgeoning interest for many researchers in recent times. There has been a previous attempt to automate the test data generation process has been limited, having been constrained by the size and complexity of software, and the fundamental facts that in totality test data generation is an undecideable problem. Metaheuristic search technique is high level frameworks, which utilizes heuristic to seek solution...
