An Approach of Automated Testing on Web Based Platform Using Machine Learning and Selenium
IEEE Xplore
July 11, 2018
Testing is performed to detect or discover the errors and defects of a system. In automated testing, what test cases tester shown only will tested. It will not test new link or new thing but here what we are trying anything is new it can understand from previous experience and try to apply experience to get new results. This approach can be achieved by a three-layer structure: Web scraper, Machine Learning (ML) and Selenium. Web page would be tested and it would be trained to a system from a human perceptive in such a way that the system able to understand what are the test cases that need to be followed for each and every element on the web page and system next time on wards will do sanity and smoke test based on those inputs intelligently going to those elements on the website. System learns what actions to be done for a particular web element like button. The outputs that are able to get it is even classified the kind of output, for example, is error page or is the page is not intended. This approach helps the larger business organization to align themselves more with a creative task in testing rather than doing the human repeated activity.

Dynamic quality control in agile methodology for improving the quality
IEEE
April 11, 2016
The advantages of software development using Agile methodology is a well researched and documented topic. However, testing in agile software methodologies is not as well researched. The four values and twelve principles of the Agile Manifesto say nothing concrete about testing or quality assurance. An agile approach such as Scrum also doesn't talk much about Quality Assurance. It's already proven that agile processes produce software fast, but does the software produced adhere to quality? Can we, in some way, improve the quality in agile methodology by focusing on Dynamic Quality Control? There is no notable evidence in existing literature that testing in agile methodologies improve the quality of software compared to other methodologies. We chose a real world project and employed three teams to work on the same project following three different methodologies (Waterfall, Agile and Agile with Dynamic Quality Control) and collected data to compare the effectiveness of testing in each methodology in real world project scenario. We concentrated on five metrics (Defect count, Test coverage, Team maturity, Resource utilization and Lean) to study and compare the change in quality of software when using different methodologies.

Internet of Things (IoT) Expanding the Horizons of Mainframes
IEEE
October 08, 2015
Internet of Things(IoT) refers to a network of all physical objects which are interconnected via internet and the communication that takes place between them. It helps in transfer of large amount of data between devices without human intervention. These data has to be stored, processed and reused in an efficient way. Security associated with these data are also of paramount importance. Mainframe systems, provides an ideal platform for overcoming these challenges. The immediate objective of this research paper is to provide a lime light over the prototype that is developed combining the two aforementioned technologies. Here features of IoT and Mainframe computers are integrated to come up with a powerful tool, which can handle large amount sensor data of IoT applications and providing graphical analytics of the same in CICS. It also incorporates the feature of controlling devices through mainframe systems. The system also provides a facility to interact with an application on a different Operating System and also keep a track of live data feeds.

Test scenario modeling: Modeling test scenarios diagrammatically using specification based testing techniques
IEEE
March 16, 2015
Software testing is a challenging task involving evaluation of the software to demonstrate that it meets the requirements and also to provide stakeholders with information about the quality of the application under test. Scenario testing is done to make sure that the end to end functioning of software is working fine, or all the business process flows of the software are working fine. However exhaustive testing of any software application is not possible because of (a) large number of input data combinations or (b) large number of possible paths in software. The popular Model Based Testing approach uses a Unified Modeling Language (UML) model of the system under test to auto generate test cases with good coverage. However UML is a modeling language used in software development. This paper introduces an innovative idea of using test scenario modeling diagrams representing black box testing techniques for test scenario modeling to ensure better coverage and traceability to requirements. These test scenario modeling diagrams, presented as an alternative to UML, will help test executives interpret Quality Assurance (QA) mappings and Test Scenario overview capturing. Also the diagrams introduced help the test planning and control activities by providing more in-depth connectivity to the technical aspects and business risks.

An approach for fully automating perspective images based on symmetry and line intersection
IEEE
December 22, 2011
Images captured using the camera are perspective in nature and hence has to be converted to a parallel view before being used for any applications to get a photorealistic result. Correction of perspective images are very useful for image based rendering and view metrology. We present a very efficient and simple method for automatically correcting the perspective image based on the intensity variations of objects in the image. The algorithm automates the perspective correction for images and videos (both recorded and online). Here we do not make use of any calibration information or explicit knowledge of any imaging device for carrying out the perspective correction. The method is based on line intersections, Hough Transform and Plane Homography.

Multidimensional Multi Lingual Virtual Keyboard With Pattern
ACM
December 18, 2016
Today, it is uncommon that accidents related to the disclosure of personal information and hacking incidents of major portal sites and financial institutions occur. In the earlier years there were only physical keyboards available for data entry with no embedded security. Then came the more secured virtual keyboards. This research paper deals with the enhanced version of the virtual keyboard with additional security by implanting multilingual keys and dynamic and multi-dimensional shuffling. One of the main feature is that the keyboard layout and character set is dynamic. Based on the input of the user, the order completely changes (user specific character set). It is not only used for password entry; but also for generating pattern. The multi-dimensional keyboard contains number of characters in a multi-lingual manner; with symbols along with alphabets and numerals. The matrix of alpha numerals and special characters is generated dynamically and the size of the matrix depends on the language.

Intelligent and Adaptive Test System
Springer
February 16, 2016
With the advent of computer technology researchers had been trying to combine artificial intelligence with test systems to analyze the answering pattern of students and come up with an effective program to test their learning capabilities. But the conventional systems conduct exams based on a predefined set of questions and give a score without any analysis. This system does not efficiently capture the proficiency of the students. To tackle this problem an intelligent and adaptive test system to assess the knowledge level and proficiency of the students was introduced. Our system demonstrates how machine learning, the past test data and the answering pattern of the test taker can be used to analyze his proficiency and provide a detailed report about the test.

SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTHENTICATION BASED ON HUMAN TEETH PATTERN
United States
March 13, 2018
An automated system and method to authenticate one or more users based on capturing one or more images of a set of teeth, obtaining a selected image from the one or more captured images and extracting a portion of the selected image to obtain an extracted image. Each extracted image is converted into a grayscale image and stored in a database along with the username and the user keyword of the one or more users. A unique signature matrix and a pattern vector is generated by processing the grayscale image and stored in the database along with the username. One or more images comprising a set of teeth of at least one user is captured and a unique signature matrix obtained from the same is compared with a set of unique signature matrices previously stored in the database and at least one action is triggered based on the comparison.

Every once in a while, I find myself on a congested road in the coastal Indian city of Thiruvananthapuram, counting down the minutes (and sometimes, hours!) to the moment I will reach home. Commuting long hours to and from office is the one part of working weekdays that I have come to dread – it is tiring, monotonous and quite lonely. And it is after all human tendency to avoid things that are boring or tiring in nature.
