In the field of computer-aided diagnostics, the segmentation and classification of biomedical images play a pivotal role. This study introduces a novel approach employing a Self-Augmented Multistage Deep Learning Network (SAMNetwork) and Deep Belief Networks (DBNs) optimized by Coot Optimization Algorithms (COAs) for the analysis of dermoscopy images. The unique challenges posed by dermoscopy images, including complex detection backgrounds and lesion characteristics, necessitate advanced techniques for accurate lesion recognition. Traditional methods have predominantly focused on utilizing larger, more complex models to increase detection accuracy, yet have often neglected the significant intraclass variability and inter-class similarity of lesion traits. This oversight has led to challenges in algorithmic application to larger models. The current research addresses these limitations by leveraging SAM, which, although not yielding immediate high-quality segmentation for medical image data, provides valuable masks, features, and stability scores for developing and training enhanced medical images. Subsequently, DBNs, aided by COAs to fine-tune their hyper-parameters, perform the classification task. The effectiveness of this methodology was assessed through comprehensive experimental comparisons and feature visualization analyses. The results demonstrated the superiority of the proposed approach over the current state-of-the-art deep learning-based methods across three datasets: ISBI 2017, ISBI 2018, and the PH2 dataset. In the experimental evaluations, the Multi-class Dilated D-Net (MD2N) model achieved a Matthew’s Correlation Coefficient (MCC) of 0.86201, the Deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) model 0.84111, the standalone DBN 0.91157, the autoencoder (AE) model 0.88662, and the DBN-COA model 0.93291, respectively. These findings highlight the enhanced performance and potential of integrating SAM with optimized DBNs in the detection and classification of skin cancer in dermoscopy images, marking a significant advancement in the field of medical image analysis.

Epilepsy, the most prevalent neurological disorder, is marked by spontaneous, recurrent seizures due to widespread neuronal discharges in the brain. This condition afflicts approximately 1% of the global population, with only two-thirds responding to antiepileptic drugs and a smaller fraction benefiting from surgical interventions. The social stigma and emotional distress associated with epilepsy underscore the importance of timely and accurate seizure detection, which can significantly enhance patient outcomes and quality of life. This research introduces a novel convolutional neural network (CNN) architecture for epileptic seizure detection, leveraging electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. Contrasted with traditional machine-learning methodologies, this innovative approach demonstrates superior performance in seizure prediction. The accuracy of the proposed CNN model is established at 97.52%, outperforming the highest accuracy of 93.65% achieved by the Discriminant Analysis classifier among the various classifiers evaluated. The findings of this study not only present a groundbreaking method in the realm of epileptic seizure recognition but also reinforce the potential of deep learning techniques in medical diagnostics.

Twitter, a predominant platform for instantaneous communication and idea dissemination, is often exploited by cybercriminals for victim harassment through sexism, racism, hate speech, and trolling using pseudonymous accounts. The propagation of racially charged online discourse poses significant threats to the social, political, and cultural fabric of many societies. Monitoring and prompt eradication of such content from social media, a breeding ground for racist ideologies, are imperative. This study introduces an advanced hybrid forecasting model, utilizing convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and long-short-term memory (LSTM) neural networks, for the efficient and accurate detection of racist and hate speech in English on Twitter. Unlabelled tweets, collated via the Twitter API, formed the basis of the initial investigation. Feature vectors were extracted from these tweets using the TF-IDF (Term Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency) feature extraction technique. This research contrasts the proposed model with existing intelligent classification algorithms in supervised learning. The HateMotiv corpus, a publicly available dataset annotated with types of hate crimes and ideological motivations, was employed, emphasizing Twitter as the primary social media context. A novel aspect of this study is the introduction of a revised artificial hummingbird algorithm (AHA), supplemented by quantum-based optimization (QBO). This quantum-based artificial hummingbird algorithm (QAHA) aims to augment exploration capabilities and reveal potential solution spaces. Employing QAHA resulted in a detection accuracy of approximately 98%, compared to 95.97% without its application. The study's principal contribution lies in the significant advancements achieved in the field of racism and hate speech detection in English through the application of hybrid deep learning methodologies.
