With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

Abstract

Full text preview
The main objective of our research is to introduce an approach that uses noninvasive MRI images to predict the conversion from mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer's disease at an early stage. It detects normal controls that are likely to develop Alzheimer's disease and mild cognitive impairment patients that are likely to establish Alzheimer's disease within two years or, contrarily, their stage remains same. The proposed approach uses two types of features i.e. volumetric features and textural features. Volumetric features consist of volume of grey matter, volume of white matter and volume of cerebrospinal fluid. A total of 364 textural features have been calculated. To avoid the curse of dimensionality, textural features are reduced to 15 features using gain ratio, a ranking based search algorithm. All features are tested against four classifiers i.e. AODEsr, VFI, RBF and LBR. Leave-One-Out cross validation strategy is used for the evaluation of proposed approach. Results show accuracy of 98.33% with volumetric features and 100% with textural features using VFI and LBR. Our approach is innovative because of its higher accuracy results as compared to existing approaches yet with a smaller feature set.
