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…

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. In this paper, the author presents the introduction of MOOCs with no synchronization into the Embedded Systems courses at “Politehnica” University of Timișoara, Romania.

    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…

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 process. The first stage consists in data collection, it continues with the basic processing, and focuses, in the last stage, on analyzing.

    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…

BRAIN: Validation of Enhanced Emotion Enabled Cognitive Agent Using Virtual Overlay Multi-Agent System Approach

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 was proposed to avoid lateral collisions between semi-AVs. It is stated in the paper that the main drawback of EEC_Agent is that it is claiming utilization of emotions in making collision avoidance decisions, but no proper emotion generation mechanism has been proposed, which helps the cognitive agent to feel emotion according to the changing in the dynamic environment. In order to overcome this problem, they have redesigned the architecture of EEC_Agent using EABM (Exploratory Agent Based Modeling) and explored the role of OCC (Ortony, Clore & Collins) model in the fear generation of EEC_Agent.
