Abstract

This study investigates how the Web search engines handle Turkish words which are frequently being wrongly spelled and/or pronounced with their own particular wrong form(s). First of all, the three most popular international Web search engines Google, Bing, and Yahoo were selected, and a query list consisted of a set of such words with their incorrect forms was formed. All queries were run on the Web search engines separately and, at each run, every document retrieved in the first twenty was classified as “relevant” or “non-relevant …. ….

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 5 Issue 8 (2015) Pg. 08- 13
Abstract

The area of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is one of the most emerging and fast growing fields in the scientific world. It consists a collection of sensing devices and these sensing devices are known as sensor nodes. Each sensor nodes are deployed into the network to monitor the physical or environmental condition such as temperature, sound, vibration at different location. The data is transfer over the network and each sensor node consumes some energy in sending data and receiving data. In WSN, the lifetime of the network depend how much energy spent in each transmission. The efficient use of energy source in a sensor node is most desirable criteria for prolong the life time of wireless sensor network. So designing efficient routing protocol for reducing energy consumption is the important issue in the network. A large number of routing protocol has been proposed since few decades … .

Abstract

ABSTRACT This study illustrates the performance evaluation of the three international Web search engines Google, Bing, and Yahoo based on the three languages English, Arabic, and Turkish in six various categories, i.e., “business”, “culture”, “health”, “sports”, “technology”, and “travel”. A total of 30 categorised queries (five per category) were determined and each of them was run in English, in Arabic, and in Turkish languages separately on each of the three Web search engines. At each run, every document retrieved in the first 10 was classified as “relevant” or “non-relevant” and, in each category, precision ratios were calculated for each of the five queries at every Web search engine and language pair. Then, they were used in the evaluation.

ABSTRACT In order to benefit from eLearning, institutions should conduct considerable up-front analysis to assess their eLearning readiness. Studies show that there are numerous models that have been developed, however, they are used in developed counties whose eReadiness is high hence not applicable in developing countries. This paper includes a model that has been developed to assess eLearning readiness of lecturers from institutions of higher learning in Kenya. It investigates the eLearning readiness of lecturers from the University of Nairobi, and the objective was to carry out a diagnostic eLearning readiness assessment of lecturers and determine the factors that influence eLearning readiness.

Most, if not all, modern frequency modulation transmitters today implement the baseband processing using application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) or digital signal processors (DSPs). Although ASICs and DSPs present the most cost-effective and turnkey solutions, it is an intellectually stimulating and rewarding endeavor to generate the baseband signal using widely available, inexpensive, discrete components. Many available published discrete designs have been optimized for cost and low part count, condensing multiple steps into one processing stage

Abstract

ABSTRACT Photovoltaic’s deal with the conversion of sunlight into electrical energy. Classic photovoltaic solar cells based on inorganic semiconductors have developed considerably [1] since the first realization of a silicon solar cell in 1954 by Chapin, Fuller and Pearson in the Bell labs. [2] Today silicon is still the leading technology on the world market of photovoltaic solar cells, with power conversion efficiencies approaching 15 – 20% for mono-crystalline devices. Though the solar energy industry is heavily subsidized throughout many years, the prices of silicon solar cell based power plants or panels are still not competitive with other conventional combustion techniques – except for several niche products. An approach for lowering the manufacturing costs of solar cells is to use organic materials that can be processed under less demanding conditions.
