Paper Title : Predicting Cryptocurrency Returns Using Classification and Regression Machine Learning Models

Amal Saad Alshehri

aJazan University, Jazan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Abstract :

People are starting to see the cryptocurrency market as a viable source of income and investment, similar to the stock market, as the concept of cryp- top currencies continues to gain popularity. Predicting Bitcoin returns is related to financial machine learning, which uses time series to forecast price variance. This study starts with the daily close price of Bitcoin for its initial dataset. The price is transformed into percentages and binary classes, which categorize into “Up” and “Down”, after which a time series is applied to produce two datasets: a categorical dataset for classification and a numerical dataset for regression. For classification that represents a Binary classification in asset-price forecasting, k-fold cross-validation is applied to ensure that the best classifiers are selected for testing and analysis. Most of the regression analysis was based on visualization, which displayed the predicted prices by each regressor in front of the original values and helped analyze the models’ results more accurately. The outcomes of this study were achieved by anticipating bitcoin returns using classification and regression machine learning models, despite the approaches’ low accuracy and significant precision rate to the “Up” class. At this stage, with a significant limitation regarding the dataset and a lack of other indicators, a model capable of predicting future variations is considered a beneficial addition for many trading tools or even for crypto market analysts.

Typhoons are hazard that is threatening the Philippines every year. Design and construction of the houses and shelter in Catanduanes changes rapidly incorporating provision against wind speed. The effect of typhoon become the basis in the design of structures and the windows components. The study sought to answer what is the type of house built in Catanduanes, what is typical window system used for houses/building in Catanduanes, what are the protection and provision being implemented to withstand the effect of high winds pressure, and what are the safety practices to counter the effect of high winds of typhoon? Most designs and houses constructed in the late 80’s already introduced these provisions that make them easy to install the windows shutter locally termed as “typhoon guard”. This was also implemented by architects, engineers, and owners as a mandatory inclusion in the building construction and design. The selection criteria for designer and owner include the budget, structural integrity of the window, and aesthetical appearance. Respondents acknowledge that windows must be protected from the force of gusty winds and debris impact and this will also ensure that your entire house or building stays safe and intact. Many respondents agree that it is vital to protect the window from breakage by using materials that can withstand the full force of the wind pressure or employing protection components to keep the window intact and safe. However, most owners of nipa hut and a handful of owners of bungalow houses suffer minor and major damages during super typhoon Rolly, and they have common concerns about their safety and evacuation to safe buildings is the ultimate safety practice to mitigate the risk pose by the typhoon. It is recommended that typical windows systems to be used in homes and buildings must be rigid enough to withstand wind forces. Safety practices to counter the effect of high winds of typhoon includes removal of possible debris and projectile must be practiced. Also, Integrated windows protection design such as windbreaker must be re-integrated into the design of the building and adopt new window design to mitigate typhoon wind forces.

Abstract :

Educational Institutions continue to seek excellence in their hiring practices given the vast spectrum of applicants ready to pursue a profession. Considering the degree to which student achievement is impacted by teacher effectiveness, this is significant. This prime perception makes it clear that there is an increasing requirement to investigate and comprehend how we may enhance the hiring procedure at educational institutions. In this study, the researchers developed a system that utilizes the Naïve Bayes Algorithm to predict which of the applicants has a resume that qualifies as faculty in a few top private universities in the Philippines namely Centro Escolar University(CEU) and De La Salle College of Saint Benilde. This will significantly apply analytics in faculty hiring decision-making and help hasten the traditional process used by Human Resource Departments when determining whether or not applicants meet the requirements for open positions inside their institution, the list of qualified applicants will be integrated into the system with filtering and sorting feature to help the Human Resource Department of the educational institution locate applicants in particular categories or fields of specialization where they intend to hire. Utilizing the ISO 25010 evaluation, the web-based system shows excellent Functional Suitability, Performance Efficiency, Usability, and Reliability, with respective means of 3.41, 3.26, 3.42, and 3.42.

Paper Title : PAWrfect Match: A Web-Based Animal Adoption and Rescue System that uses Content Based Filtering Algorithm for Recommending Potential Adoptees

Lance Julian F. Torres,

Abstract :

The study involves an automated system where pets who are adoptable are advertised making it easier for potential adoptees to find the pet for them. Due to the rise of abandonment of pets in recent times, their need for a new home is also rising. The study focuses on streamlining the advertisement of adoptable pets from different shelters or rescuers to promote adoption instead of buying pets. Users will be recommended pets based on their interest from the pre survey in the sign-up page, this will make it easier for users to find the suitable pet for them. It also includes a notification feature to notify the users if there is a new adoptable pet with characteristics that align with their interests. Users can also file a request for rescue that will be reviewed by the shelter themselves. There is also a forum tab where users and professionals are able to add a new post, and this can be filtered based on their category; the post of the professionals always appears on top in order for users to see the most relevant posts first. The system proved that it was able to successfully serve as an advertising platform for shelters and their stray cats and dogs. The forum section is also a good addition as it serves as a platform for adopters and pet-owners to seek help and tips from fellow pet owners and professionals.

Abstract :

Nowadays, biobased polymers play a significant role in the global market. Their main advantage is their green origin and comparable properties with petrochemical polymer composites. Due to their high strength properties, they are not only used in the packaging industry, but increasingly in engineering applications. This paper presents the results of physical and mechanical properties and fatigue tests performed on 4 types of composites based on bio-based PET matrix (Ecozen) with 7.5 and 15% of two different lengths of basalt fibers produced by Basaltex. A greater increase in tensile and flexural strengths and higher moduli of elasticity were observed for the shorter fibers with a length of 150mm, with their greater ability to dissipate mechanical energy. SEM images were also taken, showing the interaction between matrix and fibres of different lengths, as well as fatigue failure mechanisms. The produced composites have great potential for use as eco-friendly materials in automotive, aerospace, interiors and agricultural applications.

Paper Title : A novel hybrid composites based on bio-polyethylene terephthalate with waste microparticles as mollusc shells or eggshells and short basalt fibers.

Abstract :

The aim of the work is to assess the influence of the addition of waste particles and basalt fibers on the mechanical properties of composites based on bioPET. Biocomposites were produced by injection molding using poly(ethylene terephthalate) from renewable sources (bioPET NP 002) by Nature Plast (France) as a matrix, 10% amount of fillers and 10% basalt fibers. The fillers were waste particles: egg shells, mollusk shells and coffee grounds. For this purpose, tests such as tensile, bending and impact tests were carried out. Optical and scanning microscopy were also performed to evaluate the morphology of particles and samples. The results showed that the addition of waste particles resulted in a slight decrease in tensile and bending strength, but a significant increase in the bending and tensile modulus (up to 133%). However, in the case of hybrid composites, an increase in both strength and modulus was observed. Waste particles and natural basalt fibers allow for the production of durable and stiff green composites with a reduced carbon footprint.

Abstract :

Timber, one of the oldest and most widely used building materials, is a fibrous building material obtained from natural and sustainable resources and has heterogeneous thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Timber is used in the construction of masonry, frames, and modular structural systems in architecture. In addition, it is widely used in the manufacturing of building elements and materials, as a coating, and in the production of molds and scaffolding. Engineered timber products, such as laminated timber materials and fiber boards, also have an important place in the field of construction. In this study, timber construction examples used in the built environment are examined specifically for covering long spans that are architecturally challenging. Thanks to the advanced timber joint techniques that enable wide spans to be covered, the development of laminated timber material, and progress in wood treatment, timber has regained importance in the construction industry as a building material. In addition to all these, timber, which is ecological, easily recyclable, long-lasting, treatable, and recyclable with low embodied energy, contributes greatly to achieving sustainability in architecture. As a result, timber construction material will be a prominent building material, as it was in the past.
