1. Iris localization by means of adaptive thresholding and Circular Hough Transform

S. Memar Zadeh; A. Harimi

Volume 5, Issue 1 , Winter 2017, , Pages 21-28

Abstract
  In this paper, a new iris localization method for mobile devices is presented. Our system uses both intensity and saturation threshold on the captured eye images to determine iris boundary and sclera area, respectively. Estimated iris boundary pixels which have been placed outside the sclera will be ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter 2014, , Pages 53-61

Abstract
  Speech Emotion Recognition (SER) is a new and challenging research area with a wide range of applications in man-machine interactions. The aim of a SER system is to recognize human emotion by analyzing the acoustics of speech sound. In this study, we propose Spectral Pattern features (SPs) and Harmonic ...  Read More

3. Estimation of LPC coefficients using Evolutionary Algorithms

Hossein Marvi; Zeynab Esmaileyan; Ali Harimi

Volume 1, Issue 2 , Summer 2013, , Pages 111-118

Abstract
  The vast use of Linear Prediction Coefficients (LPC) in speech processing systems has intensified the importance of their accurate computation. This paper is concerned with computing LPC coefficients using evolutionary algorithms: Genetic Algorithm (GA), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Dif-ferential ...  Read More
