Li-Fi is a high-speed communication light source technology that is superior to Wi-Fi in terms of capacity, security, and accessibility. The paper focused on the usage of optical wireless communications (OWCs) in Li-Fi technology for transferring images of various sizes, formats, distances, and baud rates, with the results ranging from (25- 280 )cm, (1200- 96000 )bps, and (4.7- 116) kilobytes with a time of (2.7- 166) seconds.</p> Asmma H.

Route discovery and selection from device to device (D2D) that are randomly distributed came across services trade-offs. This paper presents an optimal routing technique for the MANET environment-based D2D network. The optimization method considers the Lagrange Multiplier approach to maximize bit rate along with constraints minimization of the latency and packet loss. This method is executed for D2D nodes by active route election for links. An intensive simulation is applied and the obtained simulation results manifest the effectiveness of the presented Lagrange Optimization of Rate, Delay, and Packet loss algorithm (LORDP) in the optimal routing as compared to the Particle Swarm Optimization&nbsp;(PSO) and Genetic Algorithm&nbsp;(GA).</p> Marwa K.

Surgery will offer the non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients the best hope of a cure if the cancer is diagnosed in the early stage. However, many patients eventually die of their disease due to relapse after surgery. Because of no symptoms of lung cancer in its early stage, many researchers try to improve methods to predict lung cancer relapse early. This study proposed a method to predict lung cancer relapse more accurately. This method has three stages; feature selection, parallel extreme gradient boost (XGBoost) classifications with different hyperparameters, and selection stage. It used two datasets of a gene expression microarray for different lung cancer types with its clinical information. The accuracy of the proposed model is excellent compared to other machine learning.</p> Rana D. Abdu-Aljabar, Osama A.

The science of human anatomy is the study of the body's structure and the human body's organs functions. The traditional learning method of human anatomy is based on textbooks and plastic models. The student still faces problems with understanding human anatomy based on these methods. This study aims to create an augmented reality application to address the challenge of seeing and imagining complicated human body's anatomy, and also help students to understand the procedure of Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery and to explore the medical devices used in this surgery. Through the use of an augmented reality-based application, learning human anatomy and the procedure of the surgery will be more enjoyable and interactive. In this AR application, the user performs THR surgery procedures and interactively explores human anatomy. Also, The user may test their knowledge with a quiz about the THR surgery procedure. The Research results show that the AR application received a System Usability Scale score of (82.125), indicating that it is user-friendly, recommended, and good according to the System Usability Scale range.</p> Saad B.
