Programme: PhD in Computer Science
Field of Study: Collective Intelligence, Natural Language Processing
Having received a BSc in Computing and IT from the University of Technology, Jamaica, Mr. Jones has sought to continue his academic pursuits with a PhD in Computer Science from the Department of Computing at the Faculty of Science and Technology, UWI Mona. His research focuses on the disciplines of Collective Intelligence (CI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP).Working under the supervision of Dr. Gunjan Mansingh, his research aims to artificially manufacture the phenomenon of CI over textual resources. This endeavour provides a novel way of leveraging knowledge embedded within big, textual data such as reports within organizations, blogs, social media posts and the wider internet. In addition to his primary research disciplines, his work draws on knowledge from other areas including Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, and Linguistics.
