KernTune

Long Yi, James Connan
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 annual research conference of the South African institute of computer scientists and information technologists on IT research in developing countries - SAICSIT '07  
The idea of this loop is to continuously monitor certain performance metrics, and whenever these change, the system determines the new system class and dynamically adjusts tuning parameters for this new  ...  A key aspect of KernTune is the notion of Artificial Intelligence (AI) oriented performance tuning.  ...  Each optimisation improvement given in Table 4 are computed from the average of ten tests in Tables 5, 6 and 7. The time program is used to compute the CPU time.  ...

Design principles for contactile computing

Philip Machanick
2011 Proceedings of the South African Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists Conference on Knowledge, Innovation and Leadership in a Diverse, Multidisciplinary Environment - SAICSIT '11  
The motivation for the model is the growth of mobile devices with varying degrees of sensor capability and varying levels of processing power.  ...  Contactile computing is a proposed new paradigm in which sensors and communications are integrated into a system model that integrates real-time support with conventional application support.  ...  For example, telephony is a real-time application, but the most time-critical elements arise from delays on the network, and the occasional loss of information is tolerable, so adapting existing voice  ...

An exploratory survey of design science research amongst South African computing scholars

Rennie Naidoo, Aurona Gerber, Alta van der Merwe
2012 Proceedings of the South African Institute for Computer Scientists and Information Technologists Conference on - SAICSIT '12  
DSR is a relatively new paradigm in computing and little is known about its uptake in South Africa. In this paper, we investigate the opinions about DSR among South African computing scholars.  ...  The debate ensues as to whether the traditional focus of computing research on theory development and verification and therefore has adequate immediate practical relevance.  ...  to grow awareness of the suitability of DSR in computing in South Africa.  ...

ABox abduction inALCusing a DL tableau

Ken Halland, Katarina Britz
2012 Proceedings of the South African Institute for Computer Scientists and Information Technologists Conference on - SAICSIT '12  
The formal definition of abduction asks what needs to be added to a knowledge base to enable an observation to be entailed by the knowledge base.  ...  Klarman et al [8] have provided an algorithm for performing ABox abduction in the description logic ALC by converting the knowledge base and observation to first-order logic, using a connection tableau  ...  Thanks to Tommie Meyer of the CSIR Meraka Institute (in South Africa) and Enrico Franconi of the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano (in Italy) for infrastructure and support.  ...

Ontology goes postmodern in ICT

Jan H. Kroeze
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 Annual Research Conference of the South African Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists on - SAICSIT '10  
Yet, in the world of information systems, many practitioners use the plural as one of the most natural things to do.  ...  Indeed, one may also regard the creation of information systems ontologies in a positive way as the endeavours of academics to embrace the multifaceted nature of reality by representing subsets of it.  ...  CONCLUSION The paper investigated the move from philosophical ontology to information systems ontologies, referring to the computer-based representation of subsets of reality and knowledge.  ...

Assessing the design of web interoperability protocols

Jorgina Paihama, Kyle Williams, Hussein Suleman
2012 Proceedings of the South African Institute for Computer Scientists and Information Technologists Conference on - SAICSIT '12  
However, the majority of protocols are complex, making them relatively difficult for programmers to understand and implement and thus hampering communication between heterogeneous information systems.  ...  The High-level Interoperability Protocol -Common Framework (HIP-CF) was designed and evaluated as a proof of concept that, if interoperability is simplified and it is made easier for programmers to understand  ...  There was no mature OSI software available for the full range of computing environments in use at the implementing institutions; c.  ...
