BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: The fourth International Conference on Soft Computing and Pattern Recognition (SoCPaR 2012), as partial of UBD’s array of general stature, is a really poignant event, Borneo Bulletin reported.
The opening rite was officiated by a Minister of Communications, Pehin Orang Kaya Harnzah Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awg Hj Abdullah Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Hj Bakar yesterday during The Core, Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD).

The Sultanate’s impasse in this margin will really apportion to a far-reaching operation of high tech industries in a future, he added.
SoCPaR, organized as ad annual eventuality underneath a Machine Intelligence Research (MIR) Labs, is approaching to make a large impact in UBD by substantiating a MIR Lab nodes for Brunei to rivet in inhabitant priority and internationally manifest long-term projects.
MIR Labs is a centre for systematic network and investigate value by a IEEE Computer Society, IEEE System, Man and Cybernatics (SMC) Society, USA. IEEE is a largest veteran engineering physique in a universe with over 400,000 members.
Pehin Dato Seri Setia Awg Hj Abdullah said, “The approval accorded to UBD and Brunei is a covenant to a investigate thrusts that have been undertaken recently with a design of creation UBD one of a tip 50 universities in Asia by 2015.”
The apportion combined that a contention has also enabled researchers in a university, along with pivotal attention partners in Brunei, to rivet directly with their general collaborators. This is in sold with USA and EU industries and associated projects underneath MIR Labs, that has identified a needs of substantiating such partnership for this region, quite for a rising economy in a Asean region, so creation a large impact on investigate in UBD and associated industries worldwide.
In sequence for UBD to sojourn rival in a general locus and gripping a categorical inhabitant charge force to rise tellurian resources formed on inhabitant needs, a university is actively concerned in educational activities that go over bounds in preparation and research. Computing, along with a new growth of intelligent inclination for daily needs or “soft computing”, plays an essential purpose to uplift tellurian lifestyle and heighten a believe of a society.
