A little intelligence

Some years ago I worked on a little project based on AIML – the artificial intelligence modelling language. Primitive at best, it was an interesting piece of work that allows you to have a simple conversation with a computer. If anyone would like a copy of the code, do let me know. I programmed the little guy up based on AIML and a few bits of pieces from the web. A little conversation goes like this:   You asked: hello

Runningsheet -a brief hobby

A year ago I spend 6 months building an online running sheet – ideal for coordinating events with features like: 1. How ahead or behind in the event are we 2. What is the next task 3. What’s currently in progress 4. Emailing the next person or everyone to alert them to kick start their event 5. Ensuring tasks have dependencies and can’t be complete before the previous completes If anyone’s ever interested in resurrecting it do drop me a

Useful Research Software

Software I found extremely useful: 1. Mendeley.com – changed the way I organised my research papers. Integrates nicely into texnic 2. http://www.texniccenter.org/ – the only way to write research papers! The learning curve is a bit steep, but you’ll never regret it. I’m sure MS word can do this stuff nowadays, but I’ve learns the hard way and now it’s simple as pie 🙂

Real-time content translation framework for interactive public display systems

Abstract Traditional public display systems have yet to reach their full potential when providing content to a variety of users from a diverse backgrounds, most notably, those able to understand a language other than that of the public display system in front of them. In this paper we propose a framework for content translation on public display systems. This system allows users to request for an application using their mobile device, and subsequently be loaded on to a display with

Video Surrogate Browsing Interface for Public Display System

Abstract Surrogates are commonly used as a means to describe an object. Popular search engines generally present a title, URL and brief description such objects. Existing digital video libraries still require users to download or stream entire videos in order to understand contents in the video. As public displays become increasingly prevalent in public spaces, content providers must utilize convey information in a short period of time to passersby since the user can only grasp a small percentage of total

Enhancement of Computer Forensics assisted by Biometric Technology

Abstract Computers are widely used for many different purposes, ranging from normal daily tasks like word processing to browsing the internet. With the increase in computer usage, the inevitable happens – groups of people use these computers to perform unlawful tasks such as posting individual persons private information online, hacking into bank accounts, stealing internet user information and more. These actions are criminal and punishable in many countries. The rise in computer crime has led to the field of computer

Staff Outdoor Positioning in Large Area Campus using GPS Enabled Phone, Google Map and Mobile Network

Abstract This paper explores the feasibility of using GPS enabled phones to locate staff in a large campus area on a customized campus map.This system provides an alternative approach to locate staff compared to a static directory. GPS footprinting enables the system to determine which campus building that the staff is in. The map can be viewed on Internet connected browser via personal computer or mobile device. Authors: Daniel LeowVee Leon, Alan Lau, Terence Le Grange, Lyon Laxman, Dharmidran Anantharsekaran

Bus tracking using Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) and 3G networks

Abstract Indeterminate bus arrival times cause poor quality of service to public commuters in the Bandar Sunway area. An innovative solution to use real-time GPS data over broadband has been developed in order to solve this problem. Historical data is used to determine the estimated arrival time, taking into consideration traffic conditions based on the time of day, and weather conditions. These are taken into consideration due to the impact on road traffic and subsequently the arrival times of public

Controlling Large Screen Interaction via Bluetooth Enabled Phones

Abstract Bluetooth has become a pervasive technology among tertiary students, which affords developers a large range of possibilities in allowing them to interact with systems. The focus of this paper is on allowing users to define their Bluetooth friendly names in an attempt to send input into and get output from public displays. Users are able to drive applications onto the display and also send inputs to the application. This therefore reduces the need to install custom software on a
