BRAIN: Ethnolinguistic Audio-visual Atlas of the Cultural Food Heritage of Bacău County – Elements of methodology

Cultural heritage consists not only of objects that we can see and touch, but also immaterial elements like social practices, knowledge, skills, and traditional food. The paper “Ethnolinguistic Audio-visual Atlas of the Cultural Food Heritage of Bacău County – Elements of methodology”, written by Petronela Savin, aims to present the methodology of the platform that contains results from field researches and scientific documentation on local cultural food traditions.The survey involves the older generation from the rural county of Bacӑu, Romania, and once transposed into electronic format it may become a resource for a larger spectrum of activities such as education, economy, and tourism.

BRAIN: The Impact of Infographics in Education

Information graphics (also called infographics) are graphic visual representations of information that aim to present information quickly and clearly. Their main purpose is improving cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends. The paper “The Impact of Infographics in Education”, written by Mobina Beheshti and Huseyin Bicen, investigates what are students’ thoughts on using infographics in the education system and whether they deliver satisfactory results in academic communication.

In academic communication infographics can be used to illustrate complex information in a compact form. It is a feature that enables teachers to prepare various learning activities that increase the collaboration, engagement and conceptual understanding of the learners.

BRAIN: Brain and AI

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.

    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…

    In order to avoid car accidents and ensure safer roads, Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have been created. These vehicles are capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input, which is indeed a great step towards more secure experiences for drivers. As a method of improvement for the AVs, agent-based collision avoidance components that represent human cognition and emotions have been designed. However, agent-based solutions have not been validated using any key validation technique. Considering this lack of validation practices, the authors F. Riaz and M. A. Niazi present in their upcoming paper state-of-the-art Emotion Enabled Cognitive Agent (EEC_Agent), which…
