    In this paper, an enhanced binary version of the Rat Swarm Optimizer (RSO) is proposed to deal with Feature Selection (FS) problems. FS is an important data reduction step in data mining which finds the most representative features from the entire data. Many FS-based swarm intelligence algorithms have been used to tackle FS. However, the door is still open for further investigations since no FS method gives cutting-edge results for all cases. In this paper, a recent swarm intelligence metaheuristic method called RSO which is inspired by the social and hunting behavior of a group of rats is enhanced and explored for FS problems. The binary enhanced RSO is built based on three successive modifications: i) an S-shape transfer function is used to develop binary RSO algorithms; ii) the local search paradigm of particle swarm optimization is used with the iterative loop of RSO to boost its local exploitation; iii) three crossover mechanisms are used and controlled by a switch probability to improve the diversity. Based on these enhancements, three versions of RSO are produced, referred to as Binary RSO (BRSO), Binary Enhanced RSO (BERSO), and Binary Enhanced RSO with Crossover operators (BERSOC). To assess the performance of these versions, a benchmark of 24 datasets from various domains is used. The proposed methods are assessed concerning the fitness value, number of selected features, classification accuracy, specificity, sensitivity, and computational time. The best performance is achieved by BERSOC followed by BERSO and then BRSO. These proposed versions are comparatively assessed against 25 well-regarded metaheuristic methods and five filter-based approaches. The obtained results underline their superiority by producing new best results for some datasets.

    Review on COVID-19 diagnosis models based on machine learning and deep learning approaches
    COVID-19 is the disease evoked by a new breed of coronavirus called the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Recently, COVID-19 has become a pandemic by infecting more than 152 million people in over 216 countries and territories. The exponential increase in the number of infections has rendered traditional diagnosis techniques inefficient. Therefore, many researchers have developed several intelligent techniques, such as deep learning (DL) and machine learning (ML), which can assist the healthcare sector in providing quick and precise COVID-19 diagnosis. Therefore, this paper provides a comprehensive review of the most recent DL and ML techniques for COVID-19 diagnosis. The studies are published from December 2019 until April 2021. In general, this paper includes more than 200 studies that have been carefully selected from several publishers, such as IEEE, Springer and Elsevier. We classify the research tracks into two categories: DL and ML and present COVID-19 public datasets established and extracted from different countries. The measures used to evaluate diagnosis methods are comparatively analysed and proper discussion is provided. In conclusion, for COVID-19 diagnosing and outbreak prediction, SVM is the most widely used machine learning mechanism, and CNN is the most widely used deep learning mechanism. Accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity are the most widely used measurements in previous studies. Finally, this review paper will guide the research community on the upcoming development of machine learning for COVID-19 and inspire their works for future development. This review paper will guide the research community on the upcoming development of ML and DL for COVID-19 and inspire their works for future development.

    Nowadays, learning-based modeling methods are utilized to build a precise forecast model for renewable power sources. Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques have been recognized as effective methods in generating and optimizing renewable tools. The complexity of this variety of energy depends on its coverage of large sizes of data and parameters, which have to be investigated thoroughly. This paper covered the most resent and important researchers in the domain of renewable problems using the learning-based methods. Various types of Deep Learning (DL) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms employed in Solar and Wind energy supplies are given. The performance of the given methods in the literature is assessed by a new taxonomy. This paper focus on conducting comprehensive state-of-the-art methods heading to performance evaluation of the given techniques and discusses vital difficulties and possibilities for extensive research. Based on the results, variations in efficiency, robustness, accuracy values, and generalization capability are the most obvious difficulties for using the learning techniques. In the case of the big dataset, the effectiveness of the learning techniques is significantly better than the other computational methods. However, applying and producing hybrid learning techniques with other optimization methods to develop and optimize the construction of the techniques is optionally indicated. In all cases, hybrid learning methods have better achievement than a single method due to the fact that hybrid methods gain the benefit of two or more techniques for providing an accurate forecast. Therefore, it is suggested to utilize hybrid learning techniques in the future to deal with energy generation problems.

    A biomedical application of a novel metaheuristic optimizer is proposed in this paper by constructing an enhanced arithmetic optimization algorithm (AOA). The latter algorithm was constructed using the logarithmic spiral (Ls) search mechanism from the whale optimization algorithm and the greedy selection scheme from the differential evolution algorithm. The proposed algorithm (Ls-AOA) was tested against unimodal and multimodal benchmark functions and demonstrated better capability comparatively using other efficient metaheuristic algorithms reported in the literature. The constructed Ls-AOA algorithm was then proposed to design a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller employed in a functional electrical stimulation (FES) system for the first time. The initial statistical and convergence profile assessment showed better performance of the proposed algorithm. The comparative analyses for transient and frequency responses were performed for the PID-controlled FES system using the original AOA, sine–cosine and particle swarm optimization algorithms and the traditional Ziegler-Nichols tuning scheme. Similarly, the FES system tuned with the latter methods was also assessed for disturbance rejection and noise elimination. All the comparative analyses demonstrated that the proposed Ls-AOA has the greater capability for the challenging biomedical FES system.

    People worldwide suffer from fake news in many life aspects, healthcare, transportation, education, economics, and many others. Therefore, many researchers have considered seeking techniques for automatically detecting fake news in the last decade. The most popular news agencies use e-publishing on their websites; even websites can publish any news they want. However, thus before quotation any news from a website, there should be a close look at news resource ranking by using a trusted websites classifier, such as the website world rank, which reflects the repute of these websites. This paper uses the world rank of news websites as the main factor of news accuracy by using two widespread and trusted websites ranking. Moreover, a secondary factor is proposed to compute the news accuracy similarity by comparing the current news with fakes news and getting the possible news accuracy. Experiments results are conducted on several benchmark datasets. The results showed that the proposed method got promising results compared to other comparative methods in defining the news accuracy.

    Light and Secure Encryption Technique Based on Artificially Induced Chaos and Nature-Inspired Triggering Method
    ( 2022) ;
    Muhammed J. Al-Muhammed
    Encryption is the de facto method for protecting information, whether this information is locally stored or on transit. Although we have many encryption techniques, they have problems inherited from the computational models that they use. For instance, the standard encryption technique suffers from the substitution box syndrome—the substitution box does not provide enough confusion. This paper proffers a novel encryption method that is both highly secure and lightweight. The proposed technique performs an initial preprocessing on its input plaintext, using fuzzy substitutions and noising techniques to eliminate relationships to the input plaintext. The initially encrypted plaintext is next concealed in enormously complicated codes that are generated using a chaotic system, whose behavior is controlled by a set of operations and a nature-inspired triggering technique. The effectiveness of the security of the proposed technique is analyzed using rigorous randomness tests and entropy.

    Researchers have scrutinized data hiding schemes in recent years. Data hiding in standard images works well, but does not provide satisfactory results in distortion-sensitive medical, military, or forensic images. This is because placing data in an image can cause permanent distortion after data mining. Therefore, a reversible data hiding (RDH) technique is required. One of the well-known designs of RDH is the difference expansion (DE) method. In the DE-based RDH method, finding spaces that create less distortion in the marked image is a significant challenge, and has a high insertion capacity. Therefore, the smaller the difference between the selected pixels and the more correlation between two consecutive pixels, the less distortion can be achieved in the image after embedding the secret data. This paper proposes a multilayer RDH method using the multilevel thresholding technique to reduce the difference value in pixels and increase the visual quality and the embedding capacity. Optimization algorithms are one of the most popular methods for solving NP-hard problems. The slime mould algorithm (SMA) gives good results in finding the best solutions to optimization problems. In the proposed method, the SMA is applied to the host image for optimal multilevel thresholding of the image pixels. Moreover, the image pixels in different and more similar areas of the image are located next to one another in a group and classified using the specified thresholds. As a result, the embedding capacity in each class can increase by reducing the value of the difference between two consecutive pixels, and the distortion of the marked image can decrease after inserting the personal data using the DE method. Experimental results show that the proposed method is better than comparable methods regarding the degree of distortion, quality of the marked image, and insertion capacity.

    In this paper, the economic load dispatch (ELD) problem which is an important problem in electrical engineering is tackled using a hybrid sine cosine algorithm (SCA) in a form of memetic technique. ELD is tackled by assigning a set of generation units with a minimum fuel costs to generate predefined load demand with accordance to a set of equality and inequality constraints. SCA is a recent population based optimizer turned towards the optimal solution using a mathematical-based model based on sine and cosine trigonometric functions. As other optimization methods, SCA has main shortcoming in exploitation process when a non-linear constraints problem like ELD is tackled. Therefore, β-hill climbing optimizer, a recent local search algorithm, is hybridized as a new operator in SCA to empower its exploitation capability to tackle ELD. The proposed hybrid algorithm is abbreviated as SCA-βHC which is evaluated using two sets of real-world generation cases: (i) 3-units, two versions of 13-units, and 40-units, with neglected Ramp Rate Limits and Prohibited Operating Zones constraints. (ii) 6-units and 15-units with Ramp Rate Limits and Prohibited Operating Zones constraints. The sensitivity analysis of the control parameters for SCA-βHC is initially studied. The results show that the performance of the SCA-βHC algorithm is increased by tuning its parameters in proper value. The comparative evaluation against several state-of-the-art methods show that the proposed method is able to produce new best results for some tested cases as well as the second-best for others. In a nutshell, hybridizing βHC optimizer as a new operator for SCA is very powerful algorithm for tackling ELD problems.

    The Harris hawk optimizer is a recent population-based metaheuristics algorithm that simulates the hunting behavior of hawks. This swarm-based optimizer performs the optimization procedure using a novel way of exploration and exploitation and the multiphases of search. In this review research, we focused on the applications and developments of the recent well-established robust optimizer Harris hawk optimizer (HHO) as one of the most popular swarm-based techniques of 2020. Moreover, several experiments were carried out to prove the powerfulness and effectivness of HHO compared with nine other state-of-art algorithms using Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC2005) and CEC2017. The literature review paper includes deep insight about possible future directions and possible ideas worth investigations regarding the new variants of the HHO algorithm and its widespread applications.
