Abstract
In this paper we describe a comparative classification of Pneumonia using Convolution Neural Network. The database used was the dataset Labeled Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Chest X-Ray Images for Classification made available by (Kermany, 2018) with a total of 5863 images, with 2 classes: normal and pneumonia. To evaluate the generalization capacity of the models, cross-validation of k-fold was used. The classification models proved to be efficient compared to the work of (Kermany et al., 2018) which obtained 92.8 % and the present work had an average accuracy of 95.30 %.

Abstract
The lack of physical activity and poor nutrition triggers various diseases, among them is diabetes. In this context, several researches seek ways that can mitigate these diseases to provide a better quality of life for people. Therefore, the present work aims to analyze the possible inhibitors of the enzyme Dipeptidil Peptidase 4 that hypotheses will be stipulated for the creation of new drugs through molecular docking techniques, that is, a computational simulation of combinations of drugs of the family of gliptins with other antidiabetics (metformin, glyburide and cucurbitacin). Among the results, it was observed that the antidiabetic cucurbitacin combined with the gliptines obtained greater energy during the process.
