As years pass, the importance of Artificial Intelligence grows at a fast pace. The evolution of this concept is being presented to the readers in Ángel Garrido’s upcoming paper, titled Brain and AI. Starting with the historical origins of this scientific field at the Darmouth Conference in 1956, the famous Turing test, the Strong vs. Weak AI discussion, the Chinese Room argument etc., and proceeding with projects such as Blue Brain Project, the central purpose of AI has always been to create an admissible model for human knowledge.
The Blue Brain Project is being briefly described by Garrido as an initiative to build an artificial copy of the mammalian brain by using an IBM supercomputer with ten thousand processors. Just like in aeronautics, the tool will be able to understand what happens in the brain during dysfunctional situations, and may try different behaviors.
Speech recognition applications enable the recognition and translation of spoken languages into text by computers. Due to the fact that the traditional approaches are costly and time consuming, the worldwide industry adopted speech recognition systems.
Andrei Scutelnicu, Anca Diana Bibiri, Mihaela Onofrei, and Mircea Hulea will present in their paper “A speech to text transcription approach based on Romanian corpus” a simple and efficient method for speech to text recognition, based on a machine learning approach, using a Romanian speech corpus.
Organizational performance is given by the efficiency of the employees and how well they work as a team. The paper “Team Management Styles within the Present Social and Economic Context”, written by Costin Dămășaru, Colonescu Anca-Cristina, Ramona Leon, and Crăciun Andra, approaches aspects regarding styles of managing teams in the present social and economic conditions, highlighting that the most important component towards success is represented by the management of the human resources.
Modern universities rely increasingly on communication technologies for the educational processes and the management of academic databases. In the paper “Software Application for Disabled Students” the researchers Laszlo Csiki, Andrei Gabor, Marius Popescu, and Antoanela Naaji present the methodology of a software application for android users named “Virtual University”. This virtual platform allows each student to connect in real time with the secretariat of the university, pay their educational fees and dues online and also access online courses and grades.
