Being able to trust doctor ratings online based on people experience has long been argued but based on a user study we conducted people continue to search online to find more details about doctors before they book an appointment. We have designed a system that offers a doctor rating system that caters to the Kuwait population. The website system lists doctors based on area of expertese with full contact details and accumulated ratings and patient experience-based comments. We use Microsoft Visual Studio and SQL with elements of UI design and discuss accessibility options.

Dr.Loluwa Alsumait
Project Summary: Kuwait Book Fair is held annually in Kuwait by the National Council for Culture, Arts and letters (NCAL). Looking for books in the book fair is not easy because the fair is scattered in large exhibition halls and hundreds of publishers' display booths with no assistance in searching by topic, author, or keywords. So, having a tool that allows the visitors to search for books even before reaching in the exhibition using different criteria of preference is very appealing and helpful both to the visitors, the publishers, and the organizer (NCAL). This project aims to create a mobile app using mobile application development tools for Kuwait Book Fair K-Books that will allow the visitors to search and view the books offered by the participated publishers. The app will also allow the visitor to reserve the book and to give him/her the direction to reach the booth (publisher section) at which the requested book is displayed. From the publisher's side, the app allows them to upload their book titles and details to the system from text files, handles reservation requests, and send offers and notifications to the app users. The app can be easily extended to any other Fair which will provide a good place for the exhibitors to connect and allocate the customers and for the customers to find the products that they are targeting.

Bitcoin needs strong Internet connection to work efficiently, and its also needs a lot of plug-in software like, maven and javaFX. We keep searching in internet and asking the instructor to help us understanding the code and the way of using window builder. We add many features at our interface. For example, send coins, show wallet address, and logging view text box. In the future we hope to add more features in the interface such as; barcode, transaction history, and block chain download progress. We get new experience using bitcoin and window builder, and we are sure that we will use it in the future to do more useful application.

Project Summary: Smart Refrigerator is a system to help the user using the refrigerator in easy way. We had built a system for a touch screen that is on the refrigerator door and its show what is inserting and removed from it. And we had built Smart Phone application to know what is inside the refrigerator form anywhere. We expect to increase the size of the database to fit the requirements and needs. Also, we expect that the smart refrigerator designed with the display in an appropriate manner and streamlined. The RFID that we use has a certain distance which is 10 cm. We expect in the future that the distance will be up to infinite. We expected in the future the RFID will replace barcode. Because the barcode has many disadvantage its can be damaged easily and must show the barcode directly to the reader machine. But the RFID not easy to damage and it's against water and unbreakable. Also the tags can use it indirectly or around the RFID and can work perfectly and fixable. We had developed our self and we learn to use new programs such as visual basic and XDK Intel for Smart Phone application. And also we learn and enjoy doing the Application. I hope that our project it's useful for the user especially the parents and for companies.
