It would be of great benefit to farmers to be able to utilize the current technology in order to leverage the challenges facing agricultural production and hence improve crop production and operation profitability. In this work, we designed and implemented a user-friendly smartphone-based plant disease detection and treatment recommendation system using machine learning (ML) techniques. CNN was used for feature extraction while the ANN and KNN were used to classify the plant diseases; a content-based filtering recommendation algorithm was used to suggest relevant treatments for the detected plant diseases after classification. The result of the implementation shows that the system correctly detected and recommended treatment for plant diseases</p> Folasade Isinkaye Copyright (c) 2022 Folasade Isinkaye Thu, 13 Jan 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Kullback-Leibler Divergence of Mixture Autoregressive Random Processes via Extreme-Value-Distributions (EVDs) Noise with Application of the Processes to Climate Change <p>This paper designs inter-switch autoregressive random processes in a mixture manner with Extreme-Value-Distributions (EVDs) random noises to give EVDs-MAR model. The EVDs-MAR model comprises of Fr├ęchet, Gumbel, and Weibull distributional error terms to form FMA, GMA, and WMA models with their embedded inter-switching transitional weights (w<sub>k</sub>) , distributional parameters, and autoregressive coefficients . The Kullback-Leibler divergence was used to measure the proximity (D) between finite/ delimited mixture density &nbsp;and infinite mixture density of the EVDs-MAR model with Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm adopted as the parameter estimation technique for the extreme mixture model. The FMA, GMA, and WMA models were subjected to monthly temperature in Celsius (<sup>o</sup>C) from 1900 to 2020 and annual rainfall in Millimeter (mm) from 1960 to 2020 datasets in Nigeria context.</p> Rasaki Olawale Olanrewaju, Anthony Gichuhi Waititu Copyright (c) 2022 Rasaki Olawale Olanrewaju, Anthony Gichuhi Waititu Fri, 21 Jan 2022 00:00:00 +0000
