Software estimation models are vital in the software industry, given the fact that most sof tware development projects over-run the time and budget l imi s. Recently, data mining algorithms have been a pplied to further improve the prediction accuracy of the soft ware cost estimation models that are routinely used in industry. This paper introduces a novel Swarm Intelligence te chnique to fine-tune such models. It chooses the Fe atur Selection Method (FSS) to reduce the number of inpu t…

TLDR
The physical model designed by Umeda and Teranishi simulating an arbitrary shape of the human vocal tract was a straight tube with a set of plastic plates inserted from one side, but the weight of the plates enables them to return to resting position automatically.
