Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems: Proceedings of the 24th International Conference KES2020
This edition of Procedia Computer Science represents the proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Knowledge - Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2020), organised by KES International and held in virtual form on the KESonline virtual conference platform, 16-18 September 2020. This is the first time that this conference has been held virtually, and this has been made necessary because of the Covid-19 pandemic which has swept the world. Covid-19 has caused disruption, economic problems, and human tragedy in many countries. We offer condolences and sympathy to those who have sadly lost loved ones or colleagues in the pandemic. KES 2020 was the 24th event in a series of broad-spectrum intelligent systems conferences first held in Adelaide, Australia in 1997. The main aim of this KES conference series is to provide an internationally respected forum for the dissemination of research results and the discussion of issues relating to the theory, technologies and applications of intelligent engineering and information systems. This truly international conference attracted submissions from a substantial number of researchers and pra ctitioners from all over the world, who submitted their papers to four general tracks and 40 special sessions on specific topics. A large number of submissions was received and each paper was peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. From them, 401 high - quality papers were accepted for oral presentation and publication in Procedia Computer Science, submitted for indexing in Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), Scopus and INSPEC. The conference chairs would like to express their gratitude to the Keynote Speakers: Prof Yukio Ohsawa, University of Tokyo, Japan, title of talk: Beyond Explainable Learning to Explanatory Intelligence- A Systems Innovation Approach on Data Jackets -'; Dr Urszula Stańczyk, Silesian University of Technology, Poland, title of talk: On the uniqueness of writing styles- Problems and tasks of stylometry'; Dr. Ralf Christian Haerting, University of Aalen, Germany, ‘title of talk to follow.'; and Dr Guido Governatori, Data 61, Dutton Park, Australia, title of talk: ‘title of talk to follow'. We would like to acknowledge also the Programme Co-Chairs, the General Track Chairs, the International Programme Committee members and reviewers for their valuable efforts in the review process, helping us to guarantee the highest quality possible for the conference. We would also like to thank the organisers and chairs of the special sessions which make an essential contribution to the success of the conference. Lastly, we would like to thank all the authors, presenters and delegates for their valuable contribution in making this an extraordinary event. KES International hopes and intends that KES2020 will make a significant contribution to international research collaboration and understanding, an essential task for the promotion of scientific joint work and excellence.
According to the subjective opinions of many industry experts, object immutability is a virtue in object-oriented programming, since it leads to side-effect-free design, cleaner code, better concurrency, and many other factors. However, it has never been empirically demonstrated exactly how immutability affects quality metrics of object-oriented programs. In the following research, we analyzed 97508 classes from 240 public Java repositories to find out how immutability affects the size of the code.
The present work is devoted to the problems of Digital Twin development of industrial enterprises in the field of mining. The main goal of this article is to formulate the principles of designing platform solutions for the integration of the most important functional elements that ensure the implementation of technological processes of a full production cycle. Various classification schemes for heterogeneous, poorly structured information spaces that form the distributed digital environment of a mining enterprise are proposed. Based on the results of structural and functional modeling, a number of principles and requirements are formulated for the implementation of the Digital Twin technology of the transport and technological process in quarry. A conceptual diagram of the functional structure of the Digital Twin platform is proposed, taking into account the need to include Industry 4.0 technologies such as Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data (including Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning), Autonomous Haulage Systems and Dynamics 3D Optimization Modeling. Some aspects of the implementation and functioning of the prototype version of the Digital Twin platform are considered in terms of the use of instrumental solutions based on the Unity visual modeling environment.
The issue of accessibility of new drugs is always an acute one, as for patients and for doctors, as well as the healthcare system managers. The appropriateness of speeding up market approval for new drugs was assessed using the example of the markets of the Russian Federation and the USA. The nomenclature of available antitumor drugs was compared and comparison of data on mortality caused by malignant neoplasms was performed. The results showed that with the availability of new drugs for the treatment of cancer, mortality did not show the expected decline, but increases in the United States by an average of 2.51% per year for the period from 2013 to 2017. Moreover, in the absence of 74% of new antitumor drugs on the market of the Russian Federation, mortality decreases by an average of 0.74% per year over the same period. The results retain their orientation when individually considering different age groups and localization of neoplasms, which indicates the general nature of the described phenomenon.
