This disease can cause long-term complications that develop gradually, such as heart attacks, strokes, and problems with the kidneys, eyes, skin, and blood vessels. Therefore, early diagnosis of diabetes is crucial for patients to know their diabetes status. In this study, we designed a web-based application for diabetes diagnosis using Learning Vector Quantization (LVQ). The dataset was collected from Kaggle's Diabetes Dataset which contains eight attributes, namely pregnancy, glucose, blood pressure, insulin, skin thickness, BMI, diabetes lineage function, and age, with two classes, namely negative diabetes (healthy) and positive diabetes. The results show that the best accuracy is 73.1% with a learning rate of 0.001. These findings can help patients detect diabetes problems early.</p> Juni Wijayanti Puspita, Kevin Jieventius Yanto, Andi Moh. Ridho Pettalolo, Moh. Ali Akbar Dg.

An example is the Hybrid model. This model can enhance the forecast accuracy compared to a single model. The Hybrid Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA)-Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model combines the concepts of decomposition and forecasting. The Hybrid SSA-ANN forecasting works through two stages. Firstly, SSA decomposes the data into trend, seasonal, noise, and residue components. Secondly, the decomposed data is predicted using the ANN model, specifically the LSTM and GRU models. The Hybrid SSA-ANN model has been proven to improve forecasting accuracy. The Hybrid SSA-LSTM model improves the forecast accuracy by 78% compared to the single LSTM forecasting model. This can be seen from the respective RMSE values of 4.36 changing to 0.97 and MAPE values of 5.2% changing to 1.16%. Similarly, the Hybrid SSA-GRU model improves the forecast accuracy by 79% compared to the single GRU forecasting model. This can be observed from the respective RMSE values of 4.86 changing to 1.01 and MAPE values of 6.33% changing to 1.36%. In a case study using weekly data of crude oil's opening prices, the application of SSA decomposition can enhance the forecast accuracy by 78-79% in ANN forecasting</p> Annisa Martina, Irwan Girana Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 24 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700 AgroSense: An IoT-Based Manual Crops Selection Farming <p>This capstone project introduces an Intelligent Irri-gation System leveraging IoT technology to enhance agriculture.

However, the presence of input errors in processed data presents considerable hurdles to programmers. The Snowfall Analysis program, which is well-known for its anomalous data that causes forecasting failures, serves as a key case study in this research. To solve this problem, this study leverages Titian, an extended library designed to speed debugging by methodically tracing the provenance of incorrect data back to its original source. Through thorough analysis, we analyzed Titian's accuracy using confusion matrix and compared its efficiency to standard manual debugging approaches, showing solid evidence of its utility in improving data provenance in DISC systems.</p> Agista Putri, Nungki Selviandro, Gia Septiana Wulandari Copyright (c) 2024 Wed, 03 Jul 2024 21:13:53 +0700 Analysis of Factors Affecting the Use of Digital Paylater Transactions Using the Hedonic-Motivation System Adoption Model (HMSAM) <p>The use of paylater digital transaction methods is a major trend in the current era of digitalization.

Based on type <br>classification, one of the well-known types of malware is ransomware. Usually, ransomware will <br>encrypt the files on a computer system and then demand a ransom from the owner of the computer <br>system so that the owner can regain access to the encrypted files. Sometimes in some cases, <br>ransomware is able to delete files without input from the computer system owner. This research <br>includes the analysis process of three ransomware samples that are known for successfully causing <br>losses to many computer systems throughout the world, namely WannaCry, Locky, and Jigsaw, <br>using a dynamic approach and the use of tools to track the processes carried out by the ransomware. <br>The purpose of this research is to determine which of the three samples has the highest to lowest <br>level of damage based on metrics based on file access capabilities and file modification capabilities <br>for various types of files such as system files, boot-related files, program files, etc. The findings of <br>this research indicate that WannaCry has the highest impact followed by Locky and then Jigsaw.</p> Christopher Arden Anugerah, Erwid Musthofa Jadied, Niken Cahyani Copyright (c) 2024 Wed, 03 Jul 2024 21:15:11 +0700 Optimizing Hyperparameters of CNN and DNN for Emotion Classification Based on EEG Signals <p>EEG emotion is a research topic that has gained significant attention in the development of emotion classification systems. This study focuses on optimizing the hyperparameters of CNN (Convolutional Neural Network) and DNN (Deep Neural Network) for classifying EEG emotion signals. The data is divided into three train-test data ratio scenarios: 80:20, 70:30, and 60:40. After modeling and the classification process, hyperparameter tuning was conducted on both models to achieve the best results. Experimental results showed the highest accuracy of 98.36% for CNN, while DNN reached 98.18% in the 80:20 data ratio scenario. Despite the high accuracy, the differences in the loss curves between CNN and DNN reflect the complexity of the performance of both models. The train-test data ratio was also found to significantly impact the performance of both models, with the 80:20 data split yielding the best results, while the 70:30 and 60:40 splits resulted in slightly lower accuracies.</p> Dian Palupi Rini, Winda Kurnia Sari Copyright (c) 2024 Mon, 24 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Sentiment Analysis on Social Media Using Word2Vec and Gated Recurrent Unit (GRU) with Genetic Algorithm Optimization <p>The evolution of information technology has changed the function of social media from a mere information repository to a platform for expressing opinions and aspirations.
