• 3-D face recognition 

      Eriksson, Anders (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1999-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In recent years face recognition has been a focus of intensive research but has still not achieved its full potential, mainly due to the limited abilities of existing systems to cope with varying pose ...
    • Merging deep neural networks and probabilistic models using Sum product networks 

      Smit, Andries Petrus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2020-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In recent years there has been renewed interest in machine learning algorithms that can explicitly model uncertainty. Machine learning has great potential to revolutionise almost every sector of our ...
    • Neural network models of slotted waveguide directional couplers 

      Muller, Martinette (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2001-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The application of artificial neural networks to microwave circuits is investigated. A neural network model is developed for two parallel waveguides coupled by a longitudinal slot in the common broad ...
    • Practical probabilistic systems for satellite image segmentation and classifcation 

      Mcgregor, Felix (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2020-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This thesis undertakes the task of satellite image classification from a probabilistic perspective. Our probabilistic approach is motivated by using uncertainty to address the lack of data and variability ...
    • The simulation and optimization of steady state process circuits by means of artificial neural networks 

      Aldrich, Christiaan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1993)
      ENGLISH ABASTRACT: Since the advent of modern process industries engineers engaged in the modelling and simulation of chemical and metallurgical processes have had to contend with two important dilemmas. The first concerns ...
