Two New Software Behavioral Design Patterns: Obligation Link and History Reminder

Finding proper design patterns has always been an important research topic in the software engineering community. One of the main responsibilities of the software developers is to determine which design pattern fits best to solve a particular problem. Design patterns support the effort of exploring the use of artificial intelligence

On the Relationship Between Brain Laterality and Language Proficiency in L2: A Replication Study

The present paper attempted to investigate whether there is any significant relationship between participants’ brain laterality and L2 proficiency level. To carry out the experiment, 30 participants administered in the present study. Fifteen of them did not have any English language learning experience and were at the start of language

The Effect of Caretakers’ Frequency and Positional Saliency on Noun Bias in Persian Children: a Study on Child Language Development

Noun bias in children’s early vocabulary development is a long-held belief. The present study intended to examine the correlation between the input features like frequency and positional saliency in infant-directed speech and the noun bias characteristic of infants in their early child lexical development. To this purpose, the utterances of

The Interplay Among Emotional Intelligence, Classroom Management, and Language Proficiency of Iranian EFL Teachers

The present study was an attempt to investigate the interplay among Iranian EFL teachers’ emotional intelligence, classroom management, and their general English language proficiency. The result of the data analysis showed that: 1) there was a statistically significant relationship between the emotional intelligence and the classroom management of Iranian EFL

The Presence and Activity on Facebook of the Informative Travel Organizations in Romania

In the context of a general increase in tourism activity and in the number of trips, and given that the consumption preferences of tourists are changing rapidly, the need for information becomes urgent and there is a concomitant development of public and private organizations involved in providing the necessary information

From OER to Open Education: Perceptions of Student Teachers After Creating Digital Stories with Creative Common Resources

The current study explores the perceptions of three groups of student teachers in Spain after having used open licensed resources to construct their storytelling artifacts as OER. The theoretical framework briefly reviews the concept of Open Education and OER and the affordance and drawbacks previously observed in research. Data is

Redesigning a Flexible Material Master Data Application with Language Dependency

Based on some inconveniences identified within a material master data application of the SAP MM module, the current paper proposes an alternative technical solution for designing the popup layout screen of the material master data application with respect to language dependency. The application should present the text of all tabs,

Computational Intelligence in a Human Brain Model

This paper focuses on the current trends in brain research domain and the current stage of development of research for software and hardware solutions, communication capabilities between: human beings and machines, new technologies, nano-science and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The proposed model for Human Brain assumes main similitude between human

Motor Imagery Signal Classification for Bci System Using Empirical Mode Decomposition and Bandpower Feature Extraction

The idea that brain activity could be used as a communication channel has rapidly developed. Indeed, Electroencephalography (EEG) is the most common technique to measure the brain activity on the scalp and in real-time. In this study we examine the use of EEG signals in Brain Computer Interface (BCI). This
