Objective: Despite numerous studies proposed for audio restoration in the literature, most of them focus on an isolated restoration problem such as denoising or dereverberation, ignoring other artifacts. Moreover, assuming a noisy or reverberant environment with limited number of fixed signal-to-distortion ratio (SDR) levels is a common practice. H...

Continuous long-term monitoring of motor health is crucial for the early detection of abnormalities such as bearing faults (up to 51% of motor failures are attributed to bearing faults). Despite numerous methodologies proposed for bearing fault detection, most of them require normal (healthy) and abnormal (faulty) data for training. Even with the r...

As a natural extension of PSO, MD PSO may also have a serious drawback of premature convergence to a local optimum, due to the direct link of the information flow between particles and gbest, which “guides” the rest of the swarm resulting in possible loss of diversity. Hence, this phenomenon increases the probability of being trapped in local optim...
