Information technology has deeply modified the way people access and produce educational contents. Social media, more particularly, have enabled new possibilities by making it easy to create and share text, image, and video, possibly from a mobile equipment such as a Smartphone. Younger generation is especially fond of these new services. This paper thus aims at proposing a new approach to take advantage of this worldwide phenomenon for educational purpose. The idea is to rely on Social Media to...

This paper introduces the "Immex" program that experiences how to provide services through virtual immersive online real-time environments. The idea is to offer another way to share data and make it accessible within mirror-worlds. We try to gather the data disseminated in the information system of the university and present them at a relevant place and in a meaningful form to the user experiencing the simulation.

Information plays a key role in crisis management and relief efforts for natural disaster scenarios. Given their flight properties, UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) provide new and interesting perspectives on the data gathering for disaster management. A new generation of UAVs may help to improve situational awareness and information assessment. Among the advantages UAVs may bring to the disaster management field, we can highlight the gain in terms of time and human resources, as they can free re...

When using Artificial Intelligence techniques for Knowledge management in decision support systems, the enhancement of knowledge should be based both on artificial machine learning methods and a natural human learning approach. Indeed, knowledge representation with ontologies and Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) is not enough for gaining qualitative results in decision support systems. We need to manage know-how, i.e. living knowledge. For example, enhancing biodiversity and music means teaching and l...

When a crisis occurs, particular infrastructures that are specific to the emergency situation are deployed in order to support rescue operations. Indeed, those normally used may have suffered from the disaster resulting in an altered service or may not be available at all. This process concerns physical (logistics) as well as immaterial (information) items delivery. Nowadays, special emphasis has been put on the latter as it has been proven that it is a major requirement to ensure that the forme...

From a European technological and industrial perspective of the 20th century, Knowledge Management (KM) was viewed as the next step towards reaching a smart knowledge-based economy. But today, in the 21th century of big data and fast moving information, we argue that KM is not enough for reaching a qualitative human-based post-industrial society. We need a broader view in order to understand user needs and respond to their personal desires. In this endeavor, Living labs are a good way to reposit...

Information Technologies (IT) have largely contributed to improve disaster management by providing new means to acquire, process and broadcast information to the various actors. However, most of the work was targeted toward the risk experts: decision makers, rescue teams, firemen, etc. Nowadays, a new parallel trend seems to emerge: it consists in taking into account signal from consumer devices like cell phones (basic ones to smartphones), tablets, computers or other devices but light networks ...

In the context of sustainable development of insular tropical islands, and more specifically for sustainable education in the South West of Indian Ocean, data and knowledge management of specialists of natural or cultural diversity is at the heart of designing new ICT services. For example, the objectives of these e-services are to manage biodiversity and musical information on the Web, in order to preserve insular tropical islands common heritage. But the method of building data and knowledge b...

Nowadays, huge sheet music collections exist on the Web, allowing people to access public domain scores for free. However, beginners may be lost in finding a score appropriate to their instrument level, and should often re-ly on themselves to start out on the chosen piece. In this instrumental e-Learning context, we propose a Score Analyzer prototype in order to automatically extract the difficulty level of a MusicXML piece and suggest advice thanks to a Musical Sign Base (MSB). To do so, we fir...
