Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The latest advanced machine learning techniques have contributed to great developments in various areas of interest to the academic and engineering community. In terms of methodologies employed in this field, it has seen the rise of deep learning techniques and the novel methodologies such as generative adversarial networks and natural language generation (including deep learning, reinforcement learning, transfer, and extreme learning), but may also promote the development of deep learning algorithms or methods, optimization approaches, novel hardware, software, network, and communication architectures.

The purpose of the Special Issue “Advanced Machine Learning Techniques for Modeling, Signal Processing, and Intelligent Circuits and Biosensors” is to provide a forum for academic researcher, engineers, and nature and social scientists, and practitioners to present new academic research and industrial development on machine learning for modeling, signal processing, and intelligent circuits and biosensors. This Special Issue will publish original research papers in the machine learning field, covering new theories, algorithms, circuits, systems, and biosensors, as well as novel implementations and applications. The Special Issue invites papers on various disciplines of biosensor techniques and applications that address but are not limited to the following topics:

Cardiechema is a way to reflect cardiovascular disease where the doctor uses a stethoscope to help determine the heart condition with a sound map. In this paper, phonocardiogram (PCG) is used as a diagnostic signal, and a deep learning diagnostic framework is proposed. By improving the architecture and modules, a new transfer learning and boosting architecture is mainly employed. In addition, a segmentation method is designed to improve on the existing signal segmentation methods, such as R wave to R wave interval segmentation and fixed segmentation. For the evaluation, the final diagnostic architecture achieved a sustainable performance with a public PCG database. Full article

The risk of personal data exposure through unauthorized access has never been as imminent as today. To counter this, biometric authentication has been proposed: the use of distinctive physiological and behavioral characteristics as a form of identification and access control. One of the recent developments is electroencephalography (EEG)-based authentication. It builds on the subject-specific nature of brain responses which are difficult to recreate artificially. We propose an authentication system based on EEG signals recorded in response to a simple motor paradigm. Authentication is achieved with a novel two-stage decoder. In the first stage, EEG signal features are extracted using an inception- and a VGG-like deep learning neural network (NN) both of which we compare with principal component analysis (PCA). In the second stage, a support vector machine (SVM) is used for binary classification to authenticate the subject based on the extracted features. All decoders are trained on EEG motor-movement data recorded from 105 subjects. We achieved with the VGG-like NN-SVM decoder a false-acceptance rate (FAR) of 2.55% with an overall accuracy of 88.29%, a FAR of 3.33% with an accuracy of 87.47%, and a FAR of 2.89% with an accuracy of 90.68% for 8, 16, and 64 channels, respectively. With the Inception-like NN-SVM decoder we achieved a false-acceptance rate (FAR) of 4.08% with an overall accuracy of 87.29%, a FAR of 3.53% with an accuracy of 85.31%, and a FAR of 1.27% with an accuracy of 93.40% for 8, 16, and 64 channels, respectively. The PCA-SVM decoder achieved accuracies of 92.09%, 92.36%, and 95.64% with FARs of 2.19%, 2.17%, and 1.26% for 8, 16, and 64 channels, respectively. Full article
