    Financial Obstacles Faced By Micro, Small And Medium Enterprises In The South Pacific

    Globally, there is an increased recognition of the important role played by Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the economic development of a country. Similarly, in the South Pacific region, MSMEs is the main engine behind the economic growth. In particular, MSMEs is one of the biggest contributors to...

    Fair Value Accounting In The Finance Sector: A Fiji Perspective

    In this paper the authors look at the applicability of fair value accounting in the finance sector of Fiji. They consider the perspectives of both the preparers and the users of fair value information from the finance sector. In looking at these perspectives, they took a sample of four banks...

    Evolutionary Training of Hybrid Systems of Recurrent Neural Networks and Hidden Markov Models

    The authors present hybrid architecture of Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) inspired by Hidden Markov Models (HMMs). They train the hybrid architecture using genetic algorithms to learn and represent dynamical systems. They train the hybrid architecture on a set of deterministic finite-state automata strings and observe the generalization performance of the...

    Determining Cluster Boundaries Using Particle Swarm Optimization

    Self-Organizing Map (SOM) is a well known data reduction technique used in data mining. Data visualization can reveal structure in data sets that is otherwise hard to detect from raw data alone. However, interpretation through visual inspection is prone to errors and can be very tedious. There are several techniques...
