  • Agbele, Kehinde K.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Nyongesa, Henry O.; Febba, Ronald (Medwell Journals, 2010)
    The significant roles play by ranking function in the performance and success of Information Retrieval (IR) systems and search engines cannot be underestimated. Diverse ranking functions are available in IR literature. ...
  • Agbele, Kehinde K.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Azeez, Nureni A.; Abidoye, Ademola P.; Febba, Ronald (Academic Journals Inc., 2011)
    This study presented DROPT; an acronym for Document ranking Optmization algorithm approach, a new idea for the effectiveness of meaningful retrieval results from the information source. Proposed method extracted the frequency ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H.; Marsden, Gary (Telkom, 2004)
    We looked for and found two situations within the South African Digital Divide where constant and severe macro-scale latencies would most likely interfere with the usage of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) ...
  • Rey-Moreno, Carlos; Tucker, William David; Simo-Reigadas, Javier (Telkom SA, 2014)
    This paper presents the business context and results of an optimisation exercise for a single-radio mid-range multi-hop wireless mesh network for the provision of VoIP services. This WiFi mesh network physically covers 30 ...
  • Ufitamahoro, Marie Josee; Venter, Isabella; Rey-Moreno, Carlos; Tucker, William David (ACM, 2014)
    This paper describes the role participatory design can play in developing and implementing an information and communication technology for development project in a rural area. It shows how the process of co-designing an ...
  • Azeez, Nureni A.; Abidoye, Ademola P.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Agbele, Kehinde K.; Iyamu, Tiko; Venter, Isabella M. (Akamai University, 2011)
    Currently, both Peer-to-Peer Computing (P2P) and Grid Computing have remained the most vibrant and useful forms of distributed computing all over the world. Their applications are such that they cut across both academia ...
  • Tiemeni, Ghislaine Livie Ngangom; Venter, Isabella; Tucker, William David (ACM, 2014)
    The problem of generating different patterns of traffic to emulate real user behaviour is receiving considerable attention with the construction of new and more complex network architectures. The theoretical modelling of ...
  • Bidwell, Nicola J.; Lalmas, Mounia; Marsden, Gary; Dlutu, Bongiwe; Ntlangano, Senzo; Manjingolo, Azola; Tucker, William D.; Jones, Matt; Robinson, Simon; Vartiainen, Elina; Klampanos, Iraklis (Product & Systems Internationalisation, Inc, 2011)
    Designers and developers are naïve about the ways impoverished people in rural Africa innovate new uses of mobile technology to circumvent access difficulties. Here, we report on the local appropriation of an USSD ‘Callback’ ...
  • Naidoo, Vaughn; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2001)
    Next Generation Networks use policy-based network management and QoS protocols to provide voice services on IP networks. Large numbers of older equipment still push IP packets. We present several solutions that include ...
  • Glaser, Meryl; Tucker, William D.; Mashao, Daniel (Telkom, 2004)
    Following on the development of several prototypes, we have built a semi-automated Deaf Telephony prototype on the SoftBridge platform. This prototype relays text and speech between Deaf users on the Internet and hearing ...
  • Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Agbele, Kehinde K.; Azeez, Nureni A.; Abidoye, Ademola P. (Blue Eyes Intelligence Engineering & Sciences Publication Pvt. Ltd., 2011)
    Mobile technology has contributed to the evolution of several media of communication such as chats, emails and short message service (SMS) text. This has significantly influenced the traditional standard way of expressing ...
  • Segers, Vaughn; Connan, James (2009)
    This paper discusses an implementation for gesture recognition using eigenvectors under controlled conditions. This application of eigenvector recognition is trained on a set of defined hand images. Training images are ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H.; Marsden, Gary; Pearson, Murray; Westerveld, Rudi (Telkom, 2007)
    This paper reports on three years of research and fieldwork with a rural wireless Internet Protocol communication project. We built a long-range WiFi network and custom communication software to support a rural telehealth ...
  • Rai, Idris; Rodrigues, Anthony; Venter, Isabella M.; Mills, Godfrey; Suleman, Hussein; Edumadze, John (2011)
    The principle objective of this research was to establish what computing curricula are required for the Sub-Saharan Africa region. Input from academics, businessmen and the analyses of curricula from several African ...
  • Daniels, Francois; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2008)
    This paper presents a fully decentralised peer-topeer voice communication tool intended for use across mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) by distributed groups who desired collaboration. We examined the synergy between MANETs ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H. (International Information Management Corporation, 2008)
    We describe the use of Outcome Mapping to guide the design of a rural telemedicine consultation system in South Africa. While Outcome Mapping was not primarily intended to guide design, we show that it tied in well with a ...
  • Tiemeni, Ghislaine Livie Ngangom; Venter, Isabella; Tucker, William (Telkom SA, 2014)
    The aim of this research effort is to build an efficient and accurate mobile traffic generator based on open source computer-based traffic generator software. A high performance mobile traffic generator would make the ...
  • Poroye, Adeola; Tucker, William D.; Norman, Michael (Telkom, 2009)
    This paper presents work in progress to explore the utility of Near Field Communication technology to secure mobile financial services. The objective is to evaluate the potential of this approach as an upcoming technology ...
  • Mauwa, H.; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2013)
    Wireless Mesh Networks can provide low cost and reliable community-owned connectivity in developing rural areas. A rural community can use mesh networks to access a wide range of modern information and communication ...
  • Motlhabi, Michael B.; Glaser, Meryl; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2013)
    This paper discusses a prototype for a communication aid on a mobile phone to support a Deaf1 person visiting a public hospital pharmacy. The aim is to prevent problems of non-compliance to treatment due to poor communication ...
