    Geoinformation are changing fast, therefore a change detection of real estate must be processed in short time. The increasing resolution of sensed geospatial data creates critically important to develop high performance computing solutions to process geospatial information. The topic of scientific work is the real estate monitoring system based on image recognition and remote sensing technologies. System's practical application is automatic building recognition from LiDAR data using saliency based method, vector map generation and change detection in actual cadastral maps. The scientific work describes high performance computing solution and gives its performance comparison with traditional method.

    INFORMATIONAL WARFARE – INFLUENCE ON INFORMATIONAL STRUCTURES
    The concept of information warfare encompasses the use of information and communication technologies to gain an advantage over a potential opponent. The information warfare is the manipulation with the information that trusts the goal, so that the goal should make decisions about its interests in the interests of opponents. Information structures are treated as systems that process different types of information, provide storage and access to users. Such structures may enclose neural networks, self-learning systems etc. They need to be ready to learn, respond to threats and ensure their safety, which is topical in today's information warfare. This paper will address aspects related to the security of information systems from a system theory point of view. The knowledge base of information structures can be elements of artificial intelligence, which security must be protected against various threats. The authors considers artificial neural networks to be one of the potential threats in the context of information warfare.

    An important issue in horticulture is ensuring plant disease, such as scab, prevention and treatment. Apple and pear are among the most widely grown (approximately 43% of all fruit tree area [1]) and economically important fruit crops specified worldwide and in Latvia. Scab diseases caused by ascomycetous fungi Venturia inaequalis and V.pyrina are economically the most important diseases worldwide. Research projects have produced research data covering various aspects of plant-pathogen interactions, but there is no internal linkage analysis, as well as implementation of other types of data (such as environmental and meteorological data, etc.). Establishing such a data integration system would allow the identification of new regularities in plant-pathogen interactions, and provide mechanisms for disease control decisions. Semantic analysis is one of information technology approaches to finding relationships in data. The product of analysis is ontology. There are plant disease ontologies which provide classification of diseases and describe their reasons. However, there is no ontology which describes a specific plant and relations among its farming parameters and disease probability. Such an ontology for apple and pear scab is presented in this paper. The constructed ontology can be applied to develop guidelines or digital expert systems.

    E-LEARNING: DEVELOPING TOMORROW'S EDUCATION
    E-learning refers to the term to deliver education or training using digital resources. Computer-based learning, which is considered the keystone of today's E-learning concept, was born in the 80s. Earlier E-learning provides education using only text as with the development in technology it allows adding various forms, i.e., Graphical Text, Images, Video Conferencing etc. In today's time, the concept of is E-learning growing at a rapid pace. Improved bandwidth and growing technology helped in pushing the expansion of E-learning. Along with the university, large corporate companies are also resorting to E-learning. E-learning provides many advantages as compare to Instructor-led training (ILT). E-learning saves the times of travel as physical presence is not required. Education can be provided from anywhere at any time. E-learning is cost-effective also as the course, once developed, can be modified easily. There can some concern which can be faced by the trainer and leaners in future. Adopting E-learning will be a step towards saving the environment. It will be environmentally friendly as tablets will replace books; paper notes will be replaced with digital messages. Digital tools will help to reduce the burden of a student. Artificial Intelligence is a prevalent concept in computer science. A branch of AI, known as a Neural Network, is based on the human brain. The research's main aim is to review existing methods and analyse further possibilities of E-learning systems with neural networks.

    METHOD FOR COLOR LASER MARKING PROCESS OPTIMIZATION WITH THE USE OF GENETIC ALGORITHMS
    Optimization of color laser marking process mostly depends on effective identification of optimal values of laser marking parameters. This is a difficult combinatorial optimization problem, which is still essential for companies that use laser marking systems. The study proposes a new approach to the process optimization through the use of genetic algorithms, carrying out preliminary experimental investigation, analyzing the laser marking results, and presenting possible improvements to the current implementation of genetic algorithms.

    Abstract The purpose of this paper is to tackle semantic heterogeneity problem between land administration domain ontologies using name based ontology matching approach. The majority of ontology matching solutions use one or more string similarity measures to determine how similar two concepts are. Due to wide variety of available general purpose techniques it is not always clear which ones to use for a specific domain. The goal of this research is to evaluate several most applicable string similarity measures for use in land administration domain ontology matching. To support the research ontology matching tool prototype is developed, where the proposed algorithms are implemented. The practical results of ontology matching for State Land Service of Latvia are presented and analyzed. Matching of Land Administration Domain Model international standard, present Latvian Land Administration ontology is conducted.
