Robotics, data mining, and machine learning: Honours students to showcase their research projects in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.

During this year’s Innovation Day, presented by the School of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics (CSAM) in the Faculty of Science, some 40 honours students will be demonstrating their research output covering diverse domains such as: robotics, computer vision, data mining, data science, reinforcement learning, and machine learning in general.

Innovation Day is an opportunity for the 2018 CSAM Honours students in Computer Science and Big Data Analytics to communicate their research work in a public expo format through posters and demonstrations to academics and fellow students; and is specifically open to various company, corporate and industry representatives to explore possible solutions and innovative advances in their sectors.

A notable feature for of this year’s Innovation Day is a prototype from the ScilinX Studio – an initiative in the School of CSAM with a strategic objective of advancing operational capabilities of organisations in various sectors. The ScilinX Studio team, led by associate lecturer Phumlani Nhlanganiso Khoza, will be demonstrating an operational data analytics solution aimed to produce insights in: operational risk management, operational and business intelligence, and marketing. The central theme is the extraction of customer and operational insights from unstructured text data.
