- ItemsignWithMe: Intelligent Learning System for Inclusive Learning of the Ghanaian Sign Language(Ashesi University, 2022) Abosi, Petra MensahThough Machine Learning has been around for a while, it is still considered a new tool for economists and in its application to predicting economic growth. Studies that apply machine learning to predicting economic growth have found that the Random Forest algorithm is currently the best performing machine learning algorithm for predicting economic recessions and economic growth. However, besides studies evaluating the various machine learning algorithms, there is limited literature on the application of these techniques to help economists and policymakers solve problems. Developing African countries, like Zimbabwe, with their unique economic growth challenges, can harness the predictive qualities of this technology in development planning, setting, and achieving growth targets. In this thesis, I apply the random forest algorithm to make income predictions for Zimbabwe, in the country's hopes to attain upper-middle-income status by 2030.
- ItemsignWithMe: Intelligent learning system for inclusive learning of the Ghanaian Sign Language(2022-05) Abosi, Petra MensahThere are many Deaf people in the world, and in Ghana, there are many Deaf persons. However, there is a huge communication gap between the Deaf and hearing in the Ghanaian society, as there is inadequate teaching and learning of the Ghanaian Sign Language. In this project, the signWithMe application system seeks to address this problem by providing a Sign Language application system that consists of a Sign Language dictionary, a translator, an eresource, an e-forum and an e-payment system. It would educate people about the Deaf community to ensure diversity and inclusion in our society. This system will use web features, a payment and a chatbot Application Programming Interface (API).
