Project – an Automated Make-up color selection system.
Supervisor – Dr. H.L.Premarathne

Field(s) of concern – Artificial Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic, Image Processing, Data Classification, make-up

Background: Women typically like to be in the centre of attraction of other the people. In order to be elegant looking and to get the attention of others, ladies often use make-up. Make-up is a favorite topic of women, and is a primary concern, not only when attending functions such as weddings, parties, but in day-to-day life when going for work too. The success of make-up relies on how well one can select the colors that matches her skin color, eye color, shape of the face and other relevant features. Make-up is also an art; hence one should have a good artistic eye to select the make-up which suits her. Inappropriate applying of make-up will cause a person to be in the centre of sarcasm and annoyance, instead of being in the centre of attraction. This is why; ladies often take the service of a beautician. A beautician is a professional who’s trained and who has expertise knowledge on beauty therapy and make-up. With experience, a beautician can match the make-up colors to suit a person, according to her appearance and personality. However, one does not need the help of a beautician, if that person can choose the appropriate make-up colors for herself.

Introduction: Selection of colors for a make-up is vital for a Beautician as well as for any lady who rely on make-up to appear beautiful. This research based project explores the possibility of automating the process of make-up selection (color selection) according to the facial features of a given person (woman). In particular, the research is intended to look at a Neural Network and Fuzzy Logic based approach to the problem, because with careful selection of data, a Neural Network can be trained or Fuzzy…...

...Voters in the United States don’t seem to do such a great job of showing up to vote, which is especially true when it’s time for the presidential election. Hard to believe that only a little bit more than half of eligible voters in this country actually participate in voting in the presidential elections. This seems preposterous, especially when you consider that voting plays a major part in our government. I mean, what’s a democracy without the right to vote? But sadly, a plethora of Americans don’t take advantage of that right. In my opinion, at least two causes contribute to this dilemma: people feeling disconnected from a government that seems too impersonal to them, and/or people getting tired of the mudslinging in politics. As government has grown in size and complexity, many people see less need for their participation. “Why should I vote if I can’t affect the political process?” seems to be the view taken by many people who do not vote. They have heard again and again that every vote counts, that their vote counts, but they just don’t believe it. Human beings also have the capability of being just plain lazy. To those who use this as an excuse, it’s too much trouble to register to vote and then actually go to the polls on election day. The second cause of voter apathy in my opinion, is all the mudslinging present in politics today. When one candidate says something about their opponent’s personal life, it makes people wonder what kind of person would make such......

...Online Voting: Good or Bad? E-voting does exist in various forms throughout the world — from electronic vote-counting of paper ballots, to actual, digital-display ballot machines — but bona fide, entirely-digital systems are incredibly rare. A handful of countries have experimented with remote, internet-based voting for expatriates and armed forces, but the only country to ever hold a fully-digital election — where anyone in the country could vote via the internet — is Estonia, which started in 2007. In 2011, 15% of Estonia’s population voted via the internet. Why is internet voting so slow to take off? Security is one aspect — after 100 years of refining the paper-and-pen approach, it’s understandable that some states would be apprehensive about switching to that terrifying, publicly-owned entity that is the internet — but as Estonia has shown, with ID cards that also act as public key encryption smart cards, it’s possible to create a secure internet voting platform. There are also valid concerns about hardware and software tampering — a man-in-the-middle attack somewhere between the voting terminal (be it at home or at a polling station) and the end point where tabulation occurs — but these can be ameliorated by instigating a chain of custody and public, open inspection of the systems used. In short, it’s not like the US lack the ability or technology to run a secure, internet-based election. Just imagine what would happen if suddenly everyone with an internet connection...

Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?

...Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process? The electronic voting machine embraces an electronic means of efficiently casting a vote and electronic means of accurately counting votes. Electronic voting machines, can also display election results and because of controversies associated with their operation audit trail, information can also be obtained. There are many types of electronic voting systems: paper based electronic voting system; which provides a paper ballot to be marked by hand but counted electronically. Pressing buttons or using a touch screen can operate a direct recording electronic voting machine either mechanically or electrically. This machine stores the voting data in a memory bank as a printed copy, and can transmit results to a central location. A public network voting machine uses electronic ballots, which can be transmitted from the polling place to a central location as they are cast or as a batch throughout the election process. Electronic voting machines can be made fully accessible for persons with disabilities, allowing them the freedom to vote without experiencing any hardships. Because ballot tallies are done at the close of polling stations, many of the men and women are tired leaving much room for error. According to United States General Accounting Office (2004), testimony provided to various government agencies with a research report on electronic voting systems performance attributes. The report provides a......

This paper previously appeared as Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute Technical Report TR-2003-19, July 23, 2003. Analysis of an Electronic Voting System TADAYOSHI KOHNO∗ A DAM S TUBBLEFIELD† DAN S. WALLACH§ February 27, 2004 AVIEL D. RUBIN‡ Abstract With significant U.S. federal funds now available to replace outdated punch-card and mechanical voting systems, municipalities and states throughout the U.S. are adopting paperless electronic voting systems from a number of different vendors. We present a security analysis of the source code to one such machine used in a significant share of the market. Our analysis shows that this voting system is far below even the most minimal security standards applicable in other contexts. We identify several problems including unauthorized privilege escalation, incorrect use of cryptography, vulnerabilities to network threats, and poor software development processes. We show that voters, without any insider privileges, can cast unlimited votes without being detected by any mechanisms within the voting terminal software. Furthermore, we show that even the most serious of our outsider attacks could have been discovered and executed without access to the source code. In the face of such attacks, the usual worries about insider threats are not the only concerns; outsiders can do the damage.......

Mobile Voting

...1 Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE Introduction Now more than ever, technology is changing on how we vote. Voting schemes have evolved from counting hands on early days to systems that includes papers, punch cards, mechanical levers and optical machines. Electronic voting systems provide some characteristic different from the traditional voting technique. As an effect of vast change in modern technology, several techniques in voting arises in order to solve various drawbacks like time consuming and large volume of paper works can be consumed. So the solutions are televoting, android phone voting and web voting. Televoting was also known as voting via SMS text messages. Mobile phone connects through GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) in which it searches for cells in the immediate vicinity. Televoting uses a format in which the public viewer follows and replies error whenever they send an invalid format. Like in a real television shows, televoting was a very common method that opens the public to vote its favorite contestant to remain and not to be evicted. The outcome will be decided by the number of votes in which a contestant garners. On the other hand, android phone voting and web voting has this similarity. Both use an internet in order to gain access and make vote counts. In web voting, it uses a browser to view the page and users just simply browse, follow some steps and vote, and if successful, the vote is counted. The most common method before a user...

...make president too weak or to strong; everything depends on how the president uses his formal and informal powers. It could make him strong and powerful as it happened with President Reagan, or it could weaken president’s power and fail his goals. Voting and elections are important aspects of American democracy, but not everyone chooses to participate by voting. Why are some people more likely to vote than others? Once someone decides to vote, what factors are most likely to influence their vote choice? Voting and election are at the very core of democracy because it is an important form of direct participation by citizens in different aspects of national decisions. People vote for the decision-makers who they think will represent them and make changes that everybody is waiting for. However, today we can see the trend that not everyone chooses to vote. There are several reasons why some people more likely to vote than others and factors that influence their vote choice such as people’s preference and background, economic and political condition, and candidates’ value and goals. In my paper, I will talk about the reason why some people more likely to vote than others and factors, which influence their decisions. Voting is an optional political participation. Citizen can choose who will represent their value. However, studies show that even a strong preference between two candidates may not drive people to vote. The most citizen are uninterested in the details of......

Voting System

...CHAPTER 2 FOREIGN LITERATURE “Electronic Voting Literature” Voting on the internet using PC's everyday offers only weak security, but its main disadvantages are in the areas of anonymity and protection against coercion and/or vote selling. The Presidential elections of 2000 brought national attention to problems with current American methods of casting and counting votes in public elections. Most people believe that the current system should be changed; there is much disagreement on how such changes should be made. Dr. Michael Shamos of CMU provides a sharp counterpoint [6] to Neumann and Mercuri's views. While his “Six Commandments” summary of requirements for a voting system is very similar to others' requirements, he's less afraid of the catastrophic failures and sweeping fraud made possible by imperfections in electronic voting machines actually occurring in a real election. Shamos is also much less impressed with paper ballots than are Neumann and Mercuri. He places a great deal of faith in decentralization to make fraud difficult to commit and easy to detect. Dr. Shamos even likes DRE machines. (We must take into account the fact that this paper was written ten years ago, long before the 2000 elections and before more modern mathematical results like Chaum's; some of Dr. Shamos' opinions may have changed since then. While Dr. Neumann's talk cited here is of similar age, his pessimism with regard to machines has had little reason for change.) Rebecca Mercuri......

...should vote. Students don't realize how important their vote would be if they voted. This generation fails to realize the impact they would have on the world if they would take the time out to cast a ballot. College students should vote because we have the right to do so, our vote matters, and we should have input in our future. College students should vote because we have the right to do so. The importance of our future lies within voting. We should use this right to our full advantage. Not using this right shows disrespect to those who fought for us to have the right to vote. Without this right, college students wouldn't be where they are today. Another reason why college students should vote is because our vote matters. Politicians focus on college student numbers when we request any concern. If a low ratio of students cast a ballot , the lower the feedback will be for that concern. Politicians also focus on college student voting statistics because we are the ones who will be living amongst the changes that will be put in place. The voting age was lowered for a reason. That reason is to give the younger generations a chance for their voice to be heard. Last, but not least college students should vote because we should have input in our future. No one wants a future someone else has planned for them. To vote is to voice your opinion. Voicing your opinion will lead to the type of future you want. If a great number of college students put in a vote the leaders of this......

Electronic Voting System in Punp

...Original Question: What is the best way to manually count ballot papers in block vote (BV) systems? With first-past-the-post systems, one can easily pile the ballots for each candidate, and then tally the totals. Where there is more than one vote recorded on ballot papers, some kind of tallying system seems unavoidable. What techniques are used in counting block vote ballots elsewhere?  Introduction “Vote counting is one of the most crucial stages in the election process. Failure to complete the count and transmit results in a quick, transparent and accurate manner can jeopardize public confidence in the elections and will directly affect whether candidates and political parties accept the final results.” (The ACE Encyclopedia) Block Voting (BV) belongs to the “family” of plurality / majority Electoral Systems (The other two big “families” being proportional, or mixed Electoral Systems) and is in fact a first-past-the-post (FPTP) system with the difference that it occurs in multi-member districts with voters having as many votes as there are positions to be filled. In a five-member constituency for example, the five candidates with the largest number of votes are elected, regardless of the actual percentage level of votes they receive. In BV systems, voters are usually free to vote for individual candidates regardless of party affiliation, but they are not entitled to cast the same vote more than once. Voters are also most often free to not use all the votes they are......

...to be on the electoral roll and to vote at federal and state elections for all citizens over eighteen years of age. However, it has not always been the case. At the beginning of the 20th century most men and women were eligible to vote except for indigenous people who were excluded. Following poor voter turnout in a previous election, compulsory voting was introduced in 1924. In 1962 Indigenous people gained the right to vote and it was made compulsory for them in 1984. In 1973 the voting age was changed from twenty-one to eighteen (Skwirk , 2014). The following discussion will argue that the benefits of compulsory voting far outweigh the disadvantages. In our society we have certain obligations like paying taxes, compulsory education and jury duty. Compulsory voting is just another civic duty much less onerous than any of the above. Australia is one of only eleven countries to enforce participation in elections. A 94% voter turnout for the last federal election compared favourably to 65% in the 2010 United Kingdom election and 57% in the 2012 United States presidential election (Padmanabhan, 2015). The argument that compulsory voting is incompatible with democratic government obviously does not apply to Australia that is considered one of the most transparent, representative and least corrupt nations of the world (White, 2013). The whole point of freedom is that everyone has a say and a responsibility to voice their opinion. Fifty per cent or less voter turnout is not a......

Online Voting

...ABSTRACT This report presents a proposal for an Online voting system for Imo State University.”ONLINE VOTING SYSTEM” is a voting technique which contains rules for valid voting and how votes are counted and aggregated to yield a final result. Voting involves counting which means it’s algorithmic in nature. This is an important area for development because the opinions of the students are pivotal to the future of the university, and such a system can increase awareness of important matters. However, it is still questionable whether elections could be conducted online due to the high level of concern over security and even accessibility of internet and other IT infrastructures. The aim of this project is to develop an interactive voting system with which users can participate using internet enabled computers. Online voting would be more convenient, relatively secure and utilize fewer resources. This project will be useful in two ways. It will provide an easier system for the school Student Union Government (S.U.G) than the traditional voting system and it will also help me improve my experience and knowledge of web technologies. HTML, My SQL and Java Programming Language will be used to create the Online Voting System. Project Functions and Goals • User login system and secure administrator login system. • User registration system into the database. • The polling or voting interface proper. • Add/delete polls under administration privilege. • E-mail system may be......
