BRAIN: Social Media as Medical Validator

The electronic word of mouth (eWOM) is a communication form adapted to the digitalized world of today where persons that never met communicate in an impersonal manner. The paper Social Media as Medical Validator written by Laura Broasca, Versavia-Maria Ancusa and Horia Ciocarlie aims to explore the receptiveness towards a negative bias in health-related electronic Word of Mouth.

The researchers point out that when evaluating the credibility of the eWOM we should take into account that social factors play an unexpected role, as most people use personal details and peripheral cues, not a clear, logical, fact-based judgement to reach a conclusion. And yet, the credibility of the traditional information sources is surpassed by that of eWOM.

    Internet reviews can be seen as an efficient communication form, adapted to the digital world of today. However, researchers are, for the most part, oriented towards English based ones. The Romanian language reviews exhibit specific grammar rules and challenges that need customized methods to be dealt with. In their paper, Versavia-Maria Ancusa, Olimpia Ban, and Marian Cornea offer a method for aggregating heterogeneous Romanian language reviews into a homogenous corpus, fit for further analyse. Basically, their aim is to buil a eWOM data cleaning algorithm and apply it on the Romanian language. The algorithm will be based on a three-phase…

BRAIN: Artificial Intelligence as a Decision-making Tool in Planning the Research

Because of their ability to reproduce the biological neural networks, ANNs (Artificial neural networks) have found uncountable applications to a wide range of disciplines. Simina Maris, Titus Slavici, Petre Nenu and Liliana Baciu will present in the latest volume of BRAIN journal an article about the usage of artificial intelligence, especially artificial neural networks (ANNs), in the development of an efficient research plan for studying the quality of finite products, in particular wood briquettes obtained from various biomass mixtures.

Their work is a response to the needs expressed by a private company (SC Andrei Slavici SRL) searching for innovation in the production of wood pellets and briquettes on the market of nonconventional bio-fuels.

BRAIN: The Analysis of E-Commerce Sites with Eye-Tracking Technologies

In this era of technology, it cannot come as a surprise that E-Commerce sites have become a significant part of the user’s online activity. In order for these websites to remain relevant to the visitors over long periods of time, attention should be brought to their efficiency and effectiveness when it comes to their interactivity dimensions. The study The Analysis of E-Commerce Sites with Eye-Tracking Technologies – written by O. Dospinescu and A. E. Percă-Robu – is examining the effects of the interactivity dimensions on users’ content comprehension and their attitudes towards e-commerce websites by using eye-tracking technologies.

Various fields use the eye tracking technology to assess the visual attention, but when considering the decision-making process, the specialized literature acknowledge that the eye movements are directly linked to peoples’ cognitive goals. By investigating the website’s interactivity dimensions, the authors explore the visual process and drawing the time spent on the site or on various regions of it. Dospinescu and Percă-Robu assume that a high level of interactivity leads to a favourable attitude towards the website, therefore it is important for the content creators to pay attention to the ease of use and the visual elements of their E-Commerce bussiness.

BRAIN: A Robust Approach of Facial Orientation Recognition from Facial Features

In the field of computer vision and pattern recognition, face orientation recognition stands as a significant topic. In the paper A Robust Approach of Facial Orientation Recognition from Facial Features, the authors Stefan Andrei, Kishor Datta Gupta, Md Manjurul Ahsan and Kazi Md. Rokibul Alam introduce us to an image mapping technique for face analysis.

The methodology of the study consists of two main phases: Face Feature Extraction and creating the graph image, and Matching Graph image with stored images. The Face Feature Extraction presents four steps that include Face Detection, Feature Extraction, Obtaining Feature Data and Creating image with these data.

The first step in facial feature detection is detecting the face. This requires analyzing the entire image. The second step is using the isolated face(s) to detect each feature. The technique of this study relies on the four main features of the face: left eye, right eye, nose, and mouth. It is mandatory to obtain the positions, size, height, width, and angle of these features respective to each face. By acquiring the data from the features, a new picture including the model and shape of the face is created.

    In neurology and neuroscience research, Steady-State Visually Evoked Potential (SSVEP) are brain signals which occur in response to visual stimulation. The paper Novel Detection Features for SSVEP Based BCI: Coefficient of Variation and Variation Speed - written by Abdullah Talha Sözer and Can Bülent Fidan - aims to introduce novel detection features for the SSVEP based brain computer interfaces. Brain-computer interface (BCI) is a collaboration between a brain and a device that enables signals from the brain to direct some external activity, such as control of a cursor or a prosthetic limb. The interface enables direct communication between the brain and the object…

    The article written by Sarunya Kanjanawattana and Masaomi Kimura is a study about Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which represents a a typical tool used to transform image-based characters to computer editable characters. The two illustrate a novel method which is a combination of a graph componenet extraction and an OCR-error correction. In the last years, graphs became very important to researches, as they contain significant information which can be extracted and used. Graphs offer data summarization which presents essential information that is interpreted by acquiring small descriptive details. In order to succeed in obtaining a primary interpretation, OCR was created,…
