  2. 2. WELCOMEfrom Dr. Pramod Pathak The annual School of Computing Project Showcase at National College of Ireland is a highlight of our year that recognises and celebrates the work of our final year computing students and marks the transition from their undergraduate degrees to their professional careers. This year we are delighted to announce European CTO Workday, Annrai O’Toole as our keynote speaker. As you will see, the student’s projects have been developed using various prevailing technologies and tools, specialising in different domains. We believe that a number of projects present not only commercial potential, but also the best calling card for our students. NCI has often encouraged commercially focused endeavours with the help of venture capitalists, industrial partners, and Enterprise Ireland. Such partnerships continue to provide invaluable, real-world learning experiences and enrich our curricula. To the students, congratulations and well done! It is a tough journey that you commenced four years ago, but you have shown commitment and persistence. With your success, you now have the opportunity to choose a number of paths – a career in the ICT industry, create your own product/company or continue with a postgraduate qualification. Whatever avenue you choose to take, one thing that will be common: you will always remember these years and the friendships you have made. We are delighted to invite guests from industry to come and meet our students on the 29th May, to view and discuss the various projects on display and to take the opportunity to scout out the talent that exists within the student body in NCI. The staff and students look forward to meeting you and sharing these projects with you. We look forward to welcoming you to National College of Ireland. Dr. Pramod Pathak Dean, School of Computing Dean of School of Computing 1
  3. 3. STUDENT Toscaire is a global employee monitoring product with a difference. Toscaire shows the employee what they are doing and how they are being perceived within an organization. The computer background screen displays the employee’s engagement and productivity statistics in real-time, highlighting the current activity against the organizations acceptable usage policy. Toscaire uses Systemic Functional Linguistics to evaluate and categorize communication according to the semantic undertone of the message, for example, bullying, aggression and harassment.

The program recognizes staff for identifying“good catches”and is designed to share key finding across the organization. The“Good Catch”program will: • Further strengthen the culture of quality and safety • Allow staff to be recognized for their contributions • Continue to build staff confidence in the quality improvement processes through a non-punitive environment, and taking action to address the issues and concerns Good Catch will be implemented in an effort to increase reporting, continue to enhance the culture of safety and provide the workplace with the opportunity to proactively identify and implement risk reduction strategies in areas that could cause harm to staff. The program endeavours to build an environment that fosters safety reporting with the intent to prevent system breakdowns before they occur - ultimately reducing the overall number of incidents, problems and adverse events.

  8. 8. PROFILE Project Description: The project revolves around the significance of brisk access using your technology gadgets. With advancements we are now using portable technology and gadgets like smartphones.

This mobile app will allow college students to access all the college notes, papers, important lectures, internship details, record lecturers, make new friends using the built in messaging system and much more anytime by just using their smartphone. The idea is to readily access everything and to have it in their hands by using their phones. At times students forget important dates such as exams or assignment submissions. This app can facilitate them by working as a reminder. The notifications will help them in getting all the relevant updates and they won’t miss any such dates. This app will be used by students of National College of Ireland and potential applicants. They can give their feedback and recommendations and moreover can improve this app in the testing phase.
