Lecturer Dr. Shibwabo Co-Authors three Publications with BBIT students
Most people often take a deserved break in December to enjoy the festive season, however, this was not the case for Dr. Bernard Shibwabo the Academic Director in the Faculty of Information Technology (FIT), who embarked on forming a team to kick start an array of research publications. Dr. Shibwabo has Co-Authored three journal papers that have been published in the International Journal of Research Studies in Science, Engineering and Technology [IJRSSET] at various dates of the year 2015.
The first research Publication was co-authored with Eric Mabusi, a 4th year student in Strathmore University undertaking a Bachelor of Business Information Technology (BBIT). The publication in Volume 2, Issue 1, January 2015, PP 1-14, investigates the personalization of health information on a mobile environment that is securely accessible by all stakeholders. Eric did an excellent work as part of his 2nd year studies under the supervision of Dr. Shibwabo. The paper is currently being used for teaching in the Faculty as it also continues bearing a global reach. The publication is accessible here:
The second publication is based on work that has been done together with Samuel Ngoda Kivisi and John Paul Kayima, recent graduates of BBIT degrees from Strathmore University. The research that has been published in Volume 2, Issue 7, July 2015, PP 147-158, includes the application of artificial intelligence to determine the career path and university of choice for individuals based on their preferences. The work consists of a set of algorithms that were formulated to crawl the web and determine the best fit university. The journal reviewers report indicate that the Research had been done rigorously, the Implementation and testing were perfectly carried out, and in overall, the article truly presented a job well done. The work is also earmarked to be presented in this years Strathmore Annual ICT conference. The publication is accessible here:
The third research paper was published by Kevin Omyonga who also recently graduated with a BBIT degree from Strathmore University. His publication is in Volume 2, Issue 7, July 2015, PP 174-184 in the area of voice recognition systems done. In the Voice Recognition for the Mobile Digital Assistant, the idea is to control your mobile phone purely via voice e.g. playing specific audio clip, call a contact, send texts, and set alarms among other operations. Kevin has been behind The Strathmore University Graduation App for the last two years. The research work resulted in the development of the Mobile Digital Assistant. The journal reviewers report indicate that the manuscript was a nicely written and well-aimed article. The work is also earmarked to be presented in this years Strathmore Annual ICT conference. The publication is accessible here:
Dr. Shibwabo indicates that there is more work that is expected this year.
