Qualitative and structural analysis of video sequences.
This thesis analyses videos in two distinct ways so as to improve both human understanding and the computer description of events that unfold in video sequences. Qualitative analysis can be used to understand a scene in ...
The development of a swarm intelligent simulation tool for sugarcane transport logistics systems.
Transport logistics systems typically evolve as networks over time, which may result in system rigidity and cause changes to become expensive and time consuming. In this study a logistics model, named TranSwarm, was ...
Face recognition with Eigenfaces : a detailed study.
With human society becoming increasingly computerised, the use of biometrics to automatically establish the identity of an individual is of great interest in a wide variety of applications. Facial appearance is an appealing ...
Gabor filter parameter optimization for multi-textured images : a case study on water body extraction from satellite imagery.
The analysis and identification of texture is a key area in image processing and computer vision. One of the most prominent texture analysis algorithms is the Gabor Filter. These filters are used by convolving an image ...
Scenario testing using OWL.
Abstract available in PDF file.
Debugging and repair of description logic ontologies.
In logic-based Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR), ontologies are used to represent knowledge about a particular domain of interest in a precise way. The building blocks of ontologies include concepts, relations ...
Shot classification in broadcast soccer video.
Event understanding systems, responsible for automatically generating human relatable event descriptions from video sequences, is an open problem in computer vision research that has many applications in the sports domain, ...
An investigation of multi-label classification techniques for predicting HIV drug resistance in resource-limited settings.
South Africa has one of the highest HIV infection rates in the world with more than 5.6 million infected people and consequently has the largest antiretroviral treatment program with more than 1.5 million people on ...
Model and solutions to campus parking space allocation problem.
Parking is considered a major land use challenge in campus planning. The problem can be in terms of scarcity (few available spaces compared to demand) or management (ineffi cient usage of available facilities). Many ...
Studies of heuristics for hostel space allocation problem.
This research work focused on the performance of heuristics and metaheuristics for the recently defined Hostel Space Allocation Problem (HSAP), a new instance of the space allocation problem (SAP) in higher institutions ...
