  1. Abstract

    Current radio frequency (RF) classification techniques assume only one target in the field of view. Multi‐target recognition is challenging because conventional radar signal processing results in the superposition of target micro‐Doppler signatures, making it difficult to recognise multi‐target activity. This study proposes an angular subspace projection technique that generates multiple radar data cubes (RDC) conditioned on angle (RDC‐ω). This approach enables signal separation in the raw RDC, making possible the utilisation of deep neural networks taking the raw RF data as input or any other data representation in multi‐target scenarios. When targets are in closer proximity and cannot be separated by classical techniques, the proposed approach boosts the relative signal‐to‐noise ratio between targets, resulting in multi‐view spectrograms that boosts the classification accuracy when input to the proposed multi‐view DNN. Our results qualitatively and quantitatively characterise the similarity of multi‐view signatures to those acquired in a single‐target configuration. For a nine‐class activity recognition problem, 97.8% accuracy in a 3‐person scenario is achieved, while utilising DNN trained on single‐target data. We also present the results for two cases of close proximity (sign language recognition and side‐by‐side activities), where the proposed approach has boosted the performance.

  2. The concern regarding users’ data privacy has risen to its highest level due to the massive increase in communication platforms, social networking sites, and greater users’ participation in online public discourse. An increasing number of people exchange private information via emails, text messages, and social media without being aware of the risks and implications. Researchers in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) have concentrated on creating tools and strategies to identify, categorize, and sanitize private information in text data since a substantial amount of data is exchanged in textual form. However, most of the detection methods solely rely on the existence of pre-identified keywords in the text and disregard the inference of underlying meaning of the utterance in a specific context. Hence, in some situations these tools and algorithms fail to detect disclosure, or the produced results are miss classified. In this paper, we propose a multi-input, multi-output hybrid neural network which utilizes transfer-learning, linguistics, and metadata to learn the hidden patterns. Our goal is to better classify disclosure/non-disclosure content in terms of the context of situation. We trained and evaluated our model on a human-annotated ground truth dataset, containing a total of 5,400 tweets. The results show that the proposed model was able to identify privacy disclosure through tweets with an accuracy of 77.4% while classifying the information type of those tweets with an impressive accuracy of 99%, by jointly learning for two separate tasks.
