Abstract

Le dossier présenté ici rassemble des communications prononcées lors du colloque de Nîmes en 2014 consacré au thème « Langages et communication ». Ici, il est essentiellement question de l’écriture à travers une approche phénoménologique, en tant que moyen de communication affiché, mais aussi comme marqueur de prestige, d’identité, comme moyen de communication dans le choix même de la forme, au-delà même du contenu du message. Une écriture s’affirme comme une simple retranscription visuelle d’un message oral, selon un code commun entre le locuteur et le destinataire, et qui permet au message de défier les barrières de l’espace et du temps. Définie comme cela, elle semble un outil parfaitement neutre. Les communications ici rassemblées montrent qu’il n’en est rien et que tout un message implicite est présent également dans le choix même d’écrire, dans la forme dans laquelle se coule le message écrit et que sont à l’œuvre ici des choix qui n’ont rien de neutre.

Abstract

This book examines the impact of the "Big Five" technology companies – Apple, Alphabet/Google, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft – on journalism and the media industries. It looks at the current role of algorithms and artificial intelligence in curating how we consume media and their increasing influence on the production of the news. Exploring the changes that the technology industry and automation have made in the past decade to the production, distribution and consumption of news globally, the book considers what happens to journalism once it is produced and enters the media ecosystems of the internet tech giants – and the impact of social media and AI on such things as fake news in the post-truth age.

Abstract

A detailed academic treatise of the history of nationality in Tatarstan. The book demonstrates how state collapse and national revival influenced the divergence of worldviews among ex-Soviet people in Tatarstan, where a political movement for sovereignty (1986-2000) had significant social effects, most saliently, by increasing the domains where people speak the Tatar language and circulating ideas associated with Tatar culture. Also addresses the question of how Russian Muslims experience quo...

Abstract

Visual sensors are able to capture a large quantity of information from the environment around them. A wide variety of visual systems can be found, from the classical monocular systems to omnidirectional, RGB-D, and more sophisticated 3D systems. Every configuration presents some specific characteristics that make them useful for solving different problems. Their range of applications is wide and varied, including robotics, industry, agriculture, quality control, visual inspection, surveillance, autonomous driving, and navigation aid systems. In this book, several problems that employ visual sensors are presented. Among them, we highlight visual SLAM, image retrieval, manipulation, calibration, object recognition, navigation, etc.
