A Generic/Natural Language Expert System
Department of Artificial Intelligence
Level 10, Wisma R&D
This proposal concerns 6 major fields of research concerning Artificial Intelligence: i) Turing Test ii) Semantics iii) Robotics iv) Search Engine v) Expert System vi) Cloud Computing We seek to address the shortcomings of the these fields with a “unified framework” based on graph theory, which can be outlined as follow: i) “Thinking” can be represented as “an infinite loop of questions and answers”. ii) Question as unconnected graph. iii) Answer as connected graph. iv) Program code (or equivalent) as low level graph. v)Relation / description, label as high level graph. We will use this framework to create a machine learning method that is similar to human learning i.e. Human babies learn by associating vision (representation of low level operations) with speech (labels or high level relations, which in turn is the basis of language). We will use the above framework to create Expert System architecture for “Program Modifier” (a program that modifies other programs.) We can also use the above framework to investigate the question “Is the Internet intelligent?” and provide a quantitative solution to the question of “Technological Singulartity” (the point in time when machine intelligence exceeds that of human).

Computer Architecture

The current processors are limited by the performance of their clock cycles. This is a fundamental disadvantage of synchronous circuits. As the development pushed the limits to work further increasing the processor speed according to Moore’s law will not be possible by synchronous techniques. An alternative is to devise asynchronous clock-less processors. In this research a consolidated approach will be taken to devise a fully functional asynchronous clock-less processor to overcome the challenges of synchronous processors

The assessment of research performance in the scientific disciplines has caught the attention of the university community for a long time. - It is important to study trends in research productivity because universities account for basic research which is one of the mainsprings of industrial innovations (Adams and Griliches 2000). - The Ninth Malaysia’s Plan (9MP), which runs from 2006 to 2010 calls for “producing more researchers, scientists and engineers (RSEs)” and the RM14.1b (USD4.2b) allocated to the Ministry of Higher Education in 2009 (Malaysia 2009) was a further indication of the importance that the government places on research.

Cloud computing (CC) is a future. As such, IBM, Amazon, HP and many more have invested in the infrastructure. Gartner Research estimates CC global market value could reach USD150 billion in 2014. The public as a user has responded positively to the services offered by CC due to a bunch of advantages. However, those services can only be enjoyed by powerful devices such as desktops, and laptops. Small portable devices such as smart phones, tablets with the limitation in processing power, storage capacity, and battery life are unable to tap the advantages rendered by CC. This research will find ways to narrow the gap between CC and smart phones by creating a smart phone-friendly architecture and optimize the capability of smart phones to suit the nature of CC.

Currently, the main requirement of the research is the space. Mainly, our research targeted to involves at least 6 researchers (postgraduate and postdoctorate) and the process of looking for candidates had already begun. Currently two RA’s have been identified and just beginning to work. The space in R&D building targeted as a research hub for multimedia signal processing. At the moment, all RA's are being allocated temporary workstations. It is more productive to assemble them into a single location where intellectual interactions among them can be investigated. In addition, the space can also be used a multi-function place for collaboration and demonstration. For instance, a temporary workstation can be allocated for international visiting researcher collaborating with the project. Indirectly, also serves as a place to demonstrate the potential findings of the project for interested stakeholders. Finally, the space also needed to put the expensive equipment (cameras, tabs).

Multimodal Interaction
Department of Software Engineering
Level 10, Wisma R&D
The term communication disabilities refer to speech impairments such as stuttering, impaired articulation or a voice impairment that adversely affects a child’s educational performance. This research focuses on two types of communication disabilities among children – speech disorders and autism. Speech disorders involve problems such as difficulties in making speech sounds. Autism on the other hand refers to neural development impairments characterized by damaged communication and social interaction. With the advancement in technology these children can improve their communication capability by using communication devices that enable vocal communication. These communication devices would potentially improve the communication ability of these children. However, the existing systems, software tools and devices are profoundly inadequate to meet these objectives [1]. The experiments with traditional speech recognition models show a word-level accuracy of less than 4.5 per cent on disordered speech compared with 84.8 per cent on non-disordered speech using a small vocabulary [2]. To improve the performance of existing software tools, we need to better understand the speech of these children in order to analyze and identify common speech errors (low volume, variable rate and rhythm, irregular pitch, clarity, voice quality, low intelligibility and fluency). The knowledge gained from this understanding can be applied for the development of better models that can accurately predict what these children are trying to say.
Natural Computing

1. As a research hub for natural computing work. At the moment, all my RA's (postgraduate candidates) are being allocated temporary workstations. It is more productive to assemble them into a single location where intellectual interactions among them can be instigated. 2. Acting as remote backup storage facility for clones generated by the project. The clones (RNA/DNA devices) are very sensitive to its environment, therefore multiple storage facilities are needed to ensure that the progress of the research will not be compromised. 3. Multi-function place for collaboration. For instance, a temporary workstation can be allocated for international visiting researcher collaborating with the project. Indirectly, also serves as a place to demonstrate the potential findings of the project for interested stakeholders.

Focus on developing an approach supported by Requirements Traceability and Clustering techniques to support software maintenance and quality assessment. Initial investigation on existing works on requirements traceability: Most works focus on functional requirements traceability using Information Retrieval (IR); IR approach does not have the capability to recover traceability links from software artifacts with high accuracy; Not much work on Non-functional requirements (NFRs) traceability NFRs traceability is more difficult, but more critical in determining a system’s success or failure. Information Extraction (IE) method is powerful for extracting semantic information from artifacts with high accuracy. Propose to develop a new IE-based traceability technique for NFRs. Initial investigation on existing works on requirements clustering: Most works focus on agglomerative clustering from software artifacts; An approach where abstractions of software design are recovered from existing artifacts in a bottom-up manner; used in maintenance of legacy and poorly documented software systems; Propose to develop a new adaptive clustering technique that can scale with the size of the software system
