Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Smart Cities

Smart cities integrate a wide variety of technologies and support those innovations capable of delivering sustainable socio-economic development of cities. They are complex environments that are shaped by their innovation capacity, information and communication technologies (ICTs) development and adoption, living standards, residents’ readiness, and, last but not least, the willingness

To What Extent Is Free Will Actually Free? The Answer of Neurosciences

Even though at the beginning of the 1980s the results of the first neuroscience experiments made some researchers label free will as an “illusion”, researches of recent years have unexpectedly changed this perspective. It is raised the issue of post-classical, post-dualistic views in which free will can no longer be

A Factor Analysis Model for Dimension Reduction of Outcome Factors in Neonatal Seizure Context

There is a controversial concept among many studies whether neonatal seizures are risk factors for neonatal death and/or neurodevelopment impairments (in case of newborn survivors). Multiple factors have been analyzed in literature, including perinatal factors, etiology factors, seizures characteristics factors, investigations findings factors, therapy-related factors. This paper aims to review

Review of Recent Trends in Measuring the Computing Systems Intelligence

Many difficult problems, from the philosophy of computation point of view, could require computing systems that have some kind of intelligence in order to be solved. Recently, we have seen a large number of artificial intelligent systems used in a number of scientific, technical and social domains. Usage of such

Is the Gaze Behavior During Stair Walking Affected by Pregnancy?

During stair walking, there is an increased risk of falling among pregnant women. A substantial contribution for the foot placement and balance control during stair walking is provided by vision. The purpose of this study was to determine whether there are any pregnancy-related changes in gaze behavior during the stair

Phonological Awareness of Persian Monolingual Children and Kurdish-Persian Bilingual Children

Given the importance of phonological awareness in development of literacy skills, it is essential to consider the possible differences of phonological awareness (PA) among pre-school children to plan for training programs in these courses. For this purpose, two groups of pre-school children at the ages of 5- to 6- years

Stable Modeling on Resource Usage Parameters of MapReduce Application

Currently, Hadoop MapReduce framework has been applied to many productive fields to analyze big data. MapReduce applications based on the MapReduce programming model are used to generate and process such huge data. Due to various computational purpose, MapReduce applications have different resource requirements. For specific applications, the resource bottleneck of

A Genetic Algorithm Approach to Regenerate Image from a Reduce Scaled Image Using Bit Data Count

Small scaled image lost some important bits of information which cannot be recovered when scaled back. Using multi-objective genetic algorithm, we can recover these lost bits. In this paper, we described a genetic algorithm approach to recover lost bits while image resized to the smaller version using the original image

Classification of Phonocardiograms with Convolutional Neural Networks

The diagnosis of heart diseases from heart sounds is a matter of many years. This is the effect of having too many people with heart diseases in the world. Studies on heart sounds are usually based on classification for helping doctors. In other words, these studies are a substructure of
