Science, Society and New Technologies

Information and the World Stage

From Philosophy to Science, the World of Forms and Communications

Bernard Dugué, École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne, France

Modern science is at a tipping point. A new page in the history of knowledge opens with the “information paradigm”, a notion which is gradually supplanting the old mechanistic vision inherited from Galileo and Newton.
The author presents an overview of the place of information and communications in our time, explaining some reasons for focusing on these two notions. All areas of knowledge are con...

Inside Anthropotechnology

User and Culture Centered Experience

Edited by Philippe Geslin, University of Applied Sciences, Western Switzerland

For the last 40 years, anthropotechnology has concentrated its efforts on the study and improvement of the working and living conditions of populations throughout the world. It guides the actors of the design processes by paying attention to the “human factor”: its social, cultural and environmental components. It therefore values a conception of techniques that respect people and their ways of th...

Reading and Writing Knowledge in Scientific Communities

Digital Humanities and Knowledge Construction

Edited by Gérald Kembellec, CNAM, France Evelyne Broudous, CNAM, France

Practices associated with the culture of “scholarly” reading have been developed over many centuries and annotations themselves have become the subject of study, either as additional elements in connection with the original texts or as documents in their own right.
The first “scholarly” reading techniques, seen historically from the 12th Century onwards, combine reading and writing in a process ...

Technicity vs Scientificity

Complementarities and Rivalries

Giulia Anichini, Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur la science et la technologie (CIRST), Canada Flavia Carraro, Research Institute for the History of Technology and Science, Germany Philippe Geslin, Neuchâtel University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland Georges Guille-Escuret, French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), France

The relationship between technicity and scientificity is often overlooked or avoided despite being a determining factor for establishing interdisciplinarity. By focusing on this relationship and highlighting a number of its ramifications, this book sheds light on the hidden or skewed stakes that condition a wide array of scientific projects.
The authors present different approaches based on t...

Methods and Tools for Creative Competitive Intelligence

Stéphane Goria, University of Lorraine, France

"Creative competitive intelligence" is an information-seeking and monitoring activity of an information environment for the purpose of creativity and innovation. It involves the process leading up to the development of an informational supply adapted to the inspiration of creative or innovative personnel.
This dynamic aims for the recognition of novelties (ideas, products, technologies, etc.),...

Sociobiology vs Socioecology

Consequences of an Unraveling Debate

Sejin Park, Seoul National University, South Korea Georges Guille-Escuret, CNRS, France

As a theory, sociobiology is opposed to socio-ecology, a discipline hampered since its birth. The indictment of the ideological intentions of the first has obscured the notion that the growing domination of the image of the “selfish gene” has obstructed the necessary rise of the second.
For 40 years, a terrible force of inertia has thus frozen the global analysis of socio-ecological interacti...

Enablers for Smart Cities

Edited by Amal El Fallah Seghrouchni, University of Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France Fuyuki Ishikawa, National Institute of Informatics (NII), Tokyo, Japan Laurent Hérault, CEA-LETI Hideyuki Tokuda, Keio University, Japan

Smart cities are a new vision for urban development. They integrate information and communication technology infrastructures – in the domains of artificial intelligence, distributed and cloud computing, and sensor networks – into a city, to facilitate quality of life for its citizens and sustainable growth. This book explores various concepts for the development of these new technologies (includ...

From Ethical Review to Responsible Research and Innovation

Responsible Research and Innovation Set - Volume 3

Sophie Pellé, Consultant Bernard Reber, CNRS, Paris, France

The scientific and technological upheavals of the 20th Century and the questions and difficulties that went along with them (climate change, nuclear energy, GMO, etc.) have increased the necessity of thinking about and formalizing technoscientific progress and its consequences. Expert evaluations and ethics committees today cannot be the only legitimate sources for understanding the social accepta...

Energy and Environment

Research for Innovative Transports Set - Volume 1

Edited by Michel André, IFSTTAR, France Zissis Samaras, Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece

Transport systems are facing an impossible dilemma: satisfy an increasing demand for mobility of people and goods, while decreasing their fossil-energy requirements and preserving the environment. Additionally, transport has an opportunity to evolve in a changing world, with new services, technologies but also new requirements (fast delivery, reliability, improved accessibility).
In this book, ...

Towards Innovative Freight and Logistics

Research for Innovative Transports Set - Volume 2

Edited by Corinne Blanquart, IFSTTAR, France Uwe Clausen, Dortmund University, Germany Bernard Jacob, Ecole Nationale des Travaux Publics de l’Etat, France

Freight transport faces a dual challenge: it must satisfy the demands of globalized trade and meet environmental requirements. In this context, innovation is a crucial topic to enable the transition from the current transportation and logistics system to a sustainable system.
This book provides an overview of the latest technological innovations in Europe and worldwide, based on ICT and new vehi...
