Face Recognition Under Angular Constraint Using Discrete Wavelet Transform and Principal Component Analysis with Singular Value Decomposition

ABSTRACT The complexity of a face’s components originates from the incessant variations in the facial component that occur with respect to time. Notwithstanding of these variations, humans recognise a person very easily using physical characteristics such as faces, voice, gait, etc. In human interactions, the articulation and perception of constraints; like head-poses, facial expression form a communication channel that is additional to voice and that carries crucial information about ment...

Comparative Study of Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average and Artificial Neural Network Models in Forecasting Food Prices

ABSTRACT  Prices of food are known to be a good indicator of food security and knowledge of their future value cannot be overemphasized. Box-Jenkins ARIMA model is a frequently used approach in forecqsting time series. However, recent researches suggest that Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model can be a good alternative to the conventional use of ARIMA model. This study seeks to examine and compare the forecast efficiency of ARIMA and ANN models for data on food prices in Nigeria. The A...
