Abstract:

Usually in field of technology there is a conflict between the interests of institutions and the ethical responsibilities to beneficiaries. Hence, many parties have made efforts to put some ethical standards and rules of conduct for the purpose of raising the human values within the institutions of Information Technology. In Islam morality is based primarily on the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Islam calls every person for self-reckoning, sincerity in work, honesty and sacrifice, in addition to many ethics that lead to prosperity in behaviour in various fields, including industrial and technical. The Islamic moral rules introduce full compatibility between what should the behaviour of industrial enterprises be and the personal opinions of individuals in those institutions because of the clarity of Islamic core values and principles. This research aims to develop standards and initial rules for workers in the field of information technology derived from the Islamic public rules. These standards can be divided into several topics: Islamic principles in Information technology, Islamic principles in software design, Islamic occupational principles for workers in information technology field, responsibilities towards beneficiaries and the employer, and responsibilities towards one’s self.

Abstract:

Some of the Islamic Fundamentals related to IT are presented here. Many of them agree with man-made ethical principles. However there are some which are more advanced to the latter. It is the duty of Muslim specialists to explain that, practice and to present these principles in a proper way.

This attempt is just to attract attention to those Islamic principles related to IT. More work need to be done in this direction. Joint efforts between professionals and Islamic scholars are necessary in this respect.

Abstract

Arabic character recognition of handwriting is addressed. A novel approach for the Arabic Character Recognition is presented based on statistical analysis of a typical Arabic text is presented. Results showed that the sub-word in Arabic language is the basic pictorial block rather than the word. The method of approximate stroke sequence is applied for the recognition of some Arabic characters in their stand-alone form. This method could be extended further for more accurate results. It is recommended that research in Arabic OCR systems in the future is based on the basis of the sub-word as the basic block rather than the word.

1.   Introduction :

It is my great pleasure to address this gathering of the researchers and scholars of the field of Information Technology  in relation to Islam.

It is only natural that this field receives a good attention with the challenges that the Muslims are facing the present unpleasant circumstances all over the world.. Specifically for this reason it is very important for Muslims to become interested in the field of IT and live in the age of IT in a positive way, i.e. to interact with it, rather than isolate themselves from the rest of the world they are sharing in living in.

1. Neural Networks for Syntax Analysis

Certainly one of the most important questions for the study of human language is: How do people unfailingly manage to acquire such a complex rule system? A system so complex that it has resisted the efforts of linguists to date to adequately describe in a formal system.
