  • Williams, Quentin R (CSIR, 2017-10)
    This presentation briefly discusses problems/trends such as unemployment, lack of advanced skills, import-driven economy, and the nature of the South African ICT sector. Digital innovation is put forward as a disruptor of ...
  • Kunene, D; Vadapalli, H; Cronje, J (ACM Digital Library, 2016-09)
    Blind people face difficulties when navigating unfamiliar environments. The information displayed on indoor signs and notice boards is of no use to them. In order to assist them with this challenge, we propose a real time ...
  • Burke, Michael (ACM Digital Library, 2017-10)
    Machine learning models trained using images can be used to generate image overlays by investigating which image areas contribute the most towards model outputs. A common approach used to accomplish this relies on blanking ...
  • Gerber, MC; Gerber, AJ; Van der Merwe, A (Association of Information Systems (AIS), 2015-08)
    The Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting (CFfFR) was developed to provide guidance to users and preparers of financial reports and standards. However, general consensus within the accounting community is that the ...

  • Marivate, Vukosi; Moiloa, P (IEEE, 2016-11)
    The increasing prevalence of Social Media platform use has brought with it an explosion of new user generated public data. This data is centered around many, diverse topics. One theme of interest is how one can tap into ...
  • Botha, Heila-Marie; Tkachuk, O; Van der Merwe, B; Visser, W (ACM Digital Library, 2017-07)
    Current dynamic analysis tools for Android applications do not get good code coverage since they can only explore a subset of the behaviors of the applications and do not have full control over the environment in which ...
  • Van der Merwe, H; Thachuk, O; Nel, S; Van der Merwe, B; Visser, W (ACM, 2015-11)
    Software applications are developed to be executed in a specific environment. This environment includes external/ native libraries to add functionality to the application and drivers to fire the application execution. For ...
  • Hwabamungu, B; Brown, I; Williams, Q (Association for Information Systems Special Interest Group for ICT in Global Development (SIG GlobDev), 2015-05)
    Information Systems (IS) strategizing research conducted mostly in the private sector setting indicates that there are many challenges to the implementation of Information Systems strategy and that there is need for further ...
  • Giwa, O; Davel, MH (IEEE, 2015-11)
    Text-based language identification (T-LID) of isolated words has been shown to be useful for various speech processing tasks, including pronunciation modelling and data categorisation. When the words to be categorised are ...
  • De Vries, M; Gerber, A; Van der Merwe, A (SpringerLink, 2015-06)
    Enterprise engineering (EE) is emerging as a new discipline to address the design of the enterprise in a holistic way. Although existing knowledge on enterprise design is dispersed and fragmented across different disciplines ...
  • Greene, GJ; Fischer, B (IEEE, 2015-09)
    Version control repositories contain a wealth of implicit information that can be used to answer many questions about a project’s development process. However, this information is not directly accessible in the version ...
  • Featherstone, Coral; Van der Poel, E (2017-07)
    There are some aspects of visualisation that are uniquely human. This is because data visualisation is heavily influenced by the science of human visual perception, much of which emerged from the Gestalt School of Psychology. ...
  • Khutlang, Rethabile; Machaka, Pheeha; Singh, Ann; Nelwamondo, Fulufhelo V (Intech, 2017-08)
    Biometric fingerprint scanners scan the external skin's features onto a 2-D image. The performance of the automatic fingerprint identification system suffers first and foremost if the finger skin is wet, worn out or a fake ...
  • Mabuza-Hocquet, Gugulethu P; Nelwamondo, Fulufhelo V; Marwala, T (Springer, 2017-02)
    Research in iris biometrics has been focused on utilizing iris features as a means of identity verification and authentication. However, not enough research work has been done to explore iris textures to determine soft ...
  • Moodley, D; Rens, Gavin (Elsevier, 2016-12)
    This article presents an agent architecture for controlling an autonomous agent in stochastic, noisy environments. The architecture combines the partially observable Markov decision process (POMDP) model with the ...
  • Monamo, Patrick; Marivate, Vukosi; Twala, B (IEEE, 2016-08)
    The rampant absorption of Bitcoin as a cryptographic currency, along with rising cybercrime activities, warrants utilization of anomaly detection to identify potential fraud. Anomaly detection plays a pivotal role in data ...
  • Cooper, Antony K (2016-07)
    This thesis presents an analysis of the nature of volunteered geographical information (VGI) and on its applicability for use in a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) to supplement official and commercial sources, particularly ...
  • Kleynhans, N; Hartman, W; Van Niekerk, D; Van Heerden, C; Schwartz, R; Tsakalidis, S; Davel, M (Elsevier, online, 2016-05)
    We investigate modeling strategies for English code-switched words as found in a Swahili spoken term detection system. Code switching, where speakers switch language in a conversation, occurs frequently in multilingual ...
  • Wiehman, S; De Villiers, H (IEEE, 2016-07)
    Convolutional neural networks have shown great promise in both general image segmentation problems as well as bioimage segmentation. In this paper, the application of different convolutional network architectures is explored ...
