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…

    Daniela Popescul and Mircea Georgescu present a new research indexed in BRAIN Journal on a very actual topic: Generation Y Students in Social Media. The purpose of this study is to estimate what it is known about Generation Y students’ behavior in Social Media (SM), especially in our country. The correct identification of their traits is crucial for the academic community, primarily from the perspective of understanding their authentic needs, as beneficiaries of edifying act, followed by an earnest and consistent adaptation of the offer proposed. In an elongated literature review, Daniela Popescul and Mircea Georgescu endeavor to determine the reasons…

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,…

    Technology has become more than a phenomenon used for innovation, it is now a science put in the service of making human life easier. If in the past, taking a picture of yourself required a voluminous camera with an obscure chamber, nowadays we have our cameras to ourselves for they are incorporated in our gadgets. Therefore, we take pictures of everything we see – recording reality is just one swipe away and ready in the blink of an eye. However, sometimes is difficult to skim through thousands of photos in order to find a specific one. Nabil M. Hewahi and…

BRAIN: Sentiment Analysis on Embedded Systems Blended Courses

The paper written by Răzvan Bogdan from the Department of Computers and Information Technology, Politehnica University of Timisoara, includes a presentation of a modality of integrating Embedded Systems Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) into blended courses. More than that, it also provides an evaluation of this approach: the sentiment analysis technique.

Starting with the explanation of MOOCs, the author insists on one type of courses which is still underrepresented in the field of blended courses – that of embedded systems. Consequently, we can understand that the aim of this paper is to understand, with the help of sentiment analysis, the way in which students react to blending embedded systems MOOCs into embedded system courses. We also find out that the blending variant is applied to Embedded Systems course at “Politehnica” University of Timisoara in Romania, third year of study.

    The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) phenomenon has been growing in popularity and importance in the last decade, receiving valuable recognition from renowned universities from all over the world. MOOC can be simply defined as an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. In the latest issue of the BRAIN Journal, Răzvan Bogdan’s paper approaches a modality of integrating MOOCs into embedded systems higher education. The academic field of Embedded Systems aims to enhance student’s understanding through various methods, however students find the concepts as being very monotonous and tend to avoid building practical solutions.…
