Purpose: Chili is an agricultural product that has several varieties and is in great demand. It can be consumed directly or processed first. This study aims to classify the types of chili using color and shape features. The types of chili are divided into five classes: cayenne pepper, green chili, big green chili, big red chili, and curly chili. The chili classification method was evaluated using three parameters: precision, recall, and accuracy. Methods:This study applied the K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) method with the Euclidean and Manhattan distance calculation algorithm and used two feature types: color and shape. The color features were extracted based on RGB color space by obtaining the mean and standard deviation values. Meanwhile, the shape features used aspect ratio, area, and boundary.Result:The evaluation results of the classification method were able to achieve the precision, recall, and accuracy values of 1.0, which means that all test data were classified correctly. The evaluation was applied with 210 training images and 90 test images based on the test results.Novelty:This study extracted two types of features: color and shape. Those features fed the KNN method by applying the Euclidean and Manhattan distance calculation algorithm; hence, the optimal results were achieved.

Purpose: This study aims to build an effective user interface digital signature application for document legalization. Methods: The process of document publishing services and bureaucratic flows at universities affected by the pandemic can be simplified and accelerated with this application later. However, appropriate application design still needs to be done before application development. Therefore, application design is carried out on the User Interface (UI) to the prototype stage so that the application to be built can be more attractive, more effective, and efficient. In addition, to help the application succeed, it is also necessary to evaluate the design process.  Result: This testing process is carried out to prevent failures from later application development by implementing an easy and frequently used test, namely usability testing, namely the Usability Scale (SUS) System. The tests carried out have shown that the design proposed in this study gets a good score of 80.5, so it is effective and efficient to be implemented and implemented in the development of smart digital signature applications.Novelty: This study is to design and evaluate the UI of the smart digital signature application to provide participation for the success of the application that will be developed later. Therefore, the smart digital signature application can be used effectively and efficiently as a document validation process during this pandemic, which is needed, especially in universities, to improve staff performance and support academic activities. The number of digital documents signed and sent will be the same as the documents received. Furthermore, the validity and integrity of the document can be monitored using the developed application.

Purpose: This desire for high resolution stems from two main application areas, namely improving pictorial information for human interpretation and assisting automatic machine perception in representing images or videos. Image resolution describes the detail contained in an image, the higher the resolution, the more detail there is. The resolution of a digital image can be classified into various types, namely pixel resolution, spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and radiometric resolution. In this context, we are interested in spatial resolution. Methods: Elements of a digital image consist of a collection of small images called pixels. Spatial resolution refers to the pixel density of an image and is measured in pixels per unit area. A quality digital image is determined by the size of the resolution it has. A low resolution or low-resolution is a drawback of a digital image because the information contained in the image means little compared to a high-resolution image.Result: Therefore, in this study, a digital image processing program was created in the form of Image Super-Resolution with the Convolutional Neural Network method to utilize low-resolution images to produce high-resolution images. With a fairly short training process, namely 6050 datasets with 100 CNN epochs, the average PSNR image is 5% higher.Novelty: Image quality can be improved by changing the parameters in the CNN method so that image quality can be improved.

Purpose: Dengue Hemorrhagic and Malaria fevers are the most common arthropod-borne diseases caused by mosquito bites and they also have similar signs and symptoms. Based on the problems, the researcher makes an expert system that aims to help people early detect fever diseases. This system is expected to help and support the infectious disease prevention and control program by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia. Methods: This study uses an expert system with a combination of Forward Chaining and Certainty Factor to detect the symptoms of fever.Forward Chaining is a technique that begins with gathering information related to known facts, then combining rules to produce conclusions. The certainty Factor method is used to define a measure of certainty against a fact or rule and to describe the level of expert confidence in dealing with problems. There are 32 symptoms of the disease consisting of dengue fever, malaria and typhoid, it was obtained based on the literature and interviews with internal medicine specialist with 20 case datasets.Result: Based on 20 test data, obtained one data that does not match the test results and the desired target so that the system accuracy obtained is 95%. In addition, the combination of Forward Chaining and Certainty factor has better accuracy when compared to expert systems in previous studies.Novelty: Forward Chaining to find three rules and assigning weights to the Certainty Factor that has been set by the expert makes the combination of the two methods produce better accuracy.

Purpose: More and more data are stored in text form due to technological developments, making text data processing more difficult. It also causes problems in the text preprocessing algorithm, one of which is when two texts are identical, but are considered distinct by the algorithm. Therefore, it is necessary to normalize the text to get the standard form of words in a particular language. Spelling correction is often used to normalize text, but for Bahasa Indonesia, there has not been much research on the spell correction algorithm. Thus, there needs to be a comparison of the most appropriate spelling correction algorithms for the normalization process to be effective. Methods: In this study, we compared three algorithms, namely Levenshtein Distance, Jaro-Winkler Distance, and Smith-Waterman. These algorithms were evaluated using questionnaire data and tweet data, which both are in Bahasa Indonesia.Result: The fastest normalization time is obtained by the Jaro-Winkler, taking an average of 31.01 seconds for questionnaire data and 59.27 seconds for tweet data. The best accuracy is obtained by the Levenshtein Distance with a value of 44.90% for the questionnaire data and 60.04% for the tweet data. Novelty: The novelty of this research is to compare the similarity measure algorithm in Bahasa Indonesia. Therefore, the most suitable similarity measure algorithm for Bahasa Indonesia will be obtained.

Purpose: Topic modeling is a practical algorithm for identifying topics in text data. This study aims to find issues of WhatsApp user reviews using Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) and describe the characteristics of each case. Method: We used 1710 WhatsApp user reviews written 7-13 August 2020 on Google Play. This research was conducted with a qualitative method consisting of five stages: problem identification, data retrieval, preprocessing, modeling, and analysis. The modeling stage consists of making a Document-Term Matrix (DTM), determining the number of iterations and topics, and building a model. We use perplexity as to the indicator in determining the number of iterations and topics. A lower perplexity value indicates a better model performance. The analysis phase includes observations on the top terms and documents to label and describe the characteristics of each topic.Result: Topic modeling produces word-topic and document-topic assignments. The word-topic assignment contains words with high probability (top terms). Document-topic assignment reveals documents that have a high probability (top documents). The topics most frequently discussed were voice and video calls with 104 reviews, 86 reviews of call quality, photo and video quality with 100 reviews, and voice messages with 75 reviews. Novelty: In this research, a topic model has been generated for a user review of the WhatsApp application using Latent Dirichlet Allocation. The number of iterations in the modeling was determined based on the observation of the perplexity value, instead of randomly assigning iterations.

Purpose: As the population grows, the need for clean water also increases. Municipal Waterworks (PDAM) is an institution that regulates and manages the procurement of clean water for the community. So, the amount of water produced and distributed should be adjusted to the demand for water. Predictions on PDAM water production need to be done as planning and better preparation and facilitating and assisting in decision-making. Methods: The study used the Neural Network backpropagation algorithm combined with Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to predict the amount of water PDAM should produce. Backpropagation has a good ability to make predictions. But backpropagation has a weakness that causes it to get stuck at a local minimum. This is influenced by the determination of weights that are not optimal. In this study, PSO had a role in optimizing error values on the network to gain optimal weight.Result: This study obtained MSE values in the training and testing process of 0.00179 and 0.00081 from the combination model of backpropagation ANN and PSO. It is smaller than the ANN model without using an optimization algorithm.Novelty: The combination of JST backpropagation and PSO can improve predictions' accuracy and produce optimum weights.

Identification of learning difficulties is the most important process because it determines the next step in conducting an assessment especially for students with special needs. The first step that needs to be taken in determining the learning difficulties of children with special needs is through identification, where each student has a different character. The purpose of the research is to identfy learning difficulties faced by children with special needs by using backward chaining model and give solutions to learning difficulties. The study's findings indicate that the main factor causing learning challenges for children with special needs is an internal component coming from the students themselves, namely their motivation (75%). The second component is an external factor that has to do with how parents educate their special needs children (25%). To solve the problems, students should have a high motivation in studying and parents should change the way they educate their children. It is suggested that parents should give more attention on students’ academic progress
