    For any search tools, the main objective is to improve the ratio of the number of hits to number of retrievals. The objective of this project is to develop an intelligent tool for determining the relevancy of the search result, with respect to users' keyword. Northern Light Power Search engine was used with specific keywords that are related to neural network. Hypertext and computer science domain was the focus of this study. An intelligent model that can categorize search result as relevant or irrelevant to the keyword specified was developed. This software development was divided into two parts, the first part concentrated on software development to count and categorized keyword in pre-defined format. The second part focus on software development for neural network model with autodetermining capability. Java programming language was used as the programming language to develop the software. Multilayer Perceptron was utilizes as the neural network model implemented in this study. Generic layer and notation of neural network formula were derived from classical model. Prior to the Multilayer Perceptron software development, the data from hypertext keyword counter software was used in "Neural Connection" to confirm the best result that could be acheved. The result from "Neural Connection" has achleved more than 96%. However, the results produced by the developed software decreased by 15%. This may due to the fact that the developed software used non-linear activation function at hidden as well as the output layer

    Get PDF
    The main objective of this research was to determine the relationship between corporate citizenship, organizational justice and work engagement mediated by organizational trust among the employees in commercial banks in Malaysia. This study was motivated by the increase in the number of employees being terminated by their employers in the Malaysian commercial banks due to absenteeism, lack of integrity, missing from the workplace, unpunctuality, failure to complete assignments, frequent medical leave and absent without leave which signal the lack of work engagement among the employees. In times of stiff competition, work engagement is vital for ensuring performance and profit for commercial banks. Seven main hypotheses and 14 sub-hypotheses were developed. Corporate citizenship had four dimensions: perceived economic, legal, ethical and discretionary. Organizational justice had three dimensions: distributional, procedural and interactional; and work engagement had three dimensions: vigor, absorption and dedication. The study’s sample comprised of commercial bank employees and out of the 411 responses received, only 396 were accepted and used for analysis. This study found that corporate citizenship and organizational justice have significant effects on work engagement, and organizational trust plays an important mediating role in the corporate citizenship-organizational justice-work engagement relationship. However, organizational trust has an insignificant effect on work engagement. It is suggested to the management of commercial banks to increase activities in corporate citizenship, and practice fairness, which can increase the level of organizational trust in enhancing work engagement. Future researchers can include a new variable such as job satisfaction, and expand the research area to other industries
