近年Linked Open Data (LOD) としてデータの公開が促進されつつあり，様々な主題領域のLOD データセットが多くの機関等から提供されている．それらの活用のためにはデータセット間のリンクが重要であり，同一あるいは関連のある事物について網羅的なリンクをいかに軽便に行うかが課題である．そこで，本研究では近年活用されつつあるマイクロタスク型クラウドソーシングをリンク付けに適用することを提案し，その適用手法の開発とサンプルデータを用いた実験結果について報告する．
The use of License Plate Recognition Systems (LPR) has proved to be important in the detection of many offences, including locating stolen vehicles, tackling uninsured vehicle use and solving cases of terrorism, major and organized crime. The current existing ALPR solutions in the market are very expensive and require a high level of connectivity which means many developing countries including Tanzania cannot deploy such systems to to limited funds and poor network communication infrastructure. In this paper, the portable LPR implemented on Android is presented as a means of reducing the total cost of acquiring such technology while still offering high standards of image recognition and processing.
Over the years, rural farmers depend on indigenous or local knowledge and information for their daily farming activities. This knowledge and information (indigenous or local) refers to the experience or skills gained through oral tradition and practices that have been passed from generation to generation. This knowledge and information needs ranges from animal and plant disease prevention, planting of treated seeds, fertilizer applications, farm machineries, proper storage of farm products, marketing techniques, co-operative and agro-cultural activities among others. This study attempts to investigate the problems rural farmers face accessing agricultural knowledge and information, it attempts to determine and evaluate the types of information available to farmers. For data collection a self-prepared questionnaire was used and the data analyzed. The findings of the study were used to design and develop an improved ICT solution that would provide farmers with agriculture related information, improve farmers knowledge on current agricultural practices, improve crop production and quality, make market decisions, get access to modern agriculture machines and limit the involvement of middlemen in agricultural trade activities.
This paper examines the major procurement problems Including lack of internal communication among procurement sections and languid procurement activities which hinders the implementation of procurement projects, as well as the agencies, cannot use the available annual budget completely, in this paper various methods have been used to better define the existing challenges of procurement, such as interviews, questionnaire, and literature review. This study introduces four applicatory goals in the area of electronic government procurement (e-GP). The main objectives of this study are: (i) To make the procurement process more efficient (ii) Optimal control and management of procurement activities, (iii) To actualized the transparency and accountability, and (iv) To change the conventional procurement to e-procurement system through a web-based application. And finally to find out the effectiveness of the system, it was shared with local procurement experts for test and validation.
