Example of approaches identified in the “açai” tag Paper

Tags Analysis on the sale of fruits from the…

Social indexing is the ability to represent information made by the users of a system to share and retrieve information. In an Online Social Network Service (OSNS) it is possible to perceive the intrinsic aspects of social indexing through the use of tags in the marketing of products.

The goal is to analyze tags to characterize social indexing in Amazon fruit sale ads within an On-line Social Networking Service. The methodological procedures were carried out through an exploratory analysis of an experimental nature with direct participation; the data collection selected the ads that deal individually about each fruit on the Facebook Marketplace.

From the analysis of the data sets, it was possible to verify the aspects of the use of tags in ads in terms of quantity and frequency. The tags were classified based on the role each one plays concerning the resource indexed by the user. In addition, aspects regarding geographic location and content representation in the ad title were observed.

It was possible to identify the social indexing in the use of tags in the OSNS Facebook Marketplace when it comes to Amazonian fruits, as the tags are made up of semantic value and not just decontextualized textual fragments: they have intrinsic aspects that depend on the user or user groups, which they use to attribute an interpretation that may vary according to the context.

Propensity to Use an Aerial Data Collection Device in Agricultural Research Book Chapter

Propensity to Use an Aerial Data Collection Device in…

The access to information as a success factor in areas of human activity gains relevance with the intensive adoption of ICT. An important sector such as agriculture cannot be left out of this phenomenon.

The results obtained in agricultural research show an increasing dependence on the intensive use of data, with a bigger volume and variety, origin in different environments, and through different technologies.

The objective of this study is to categorize the possibilities of using Aerial Data Collection Device described in agriculture academic studies, to understand how these devices are being used in research carried out by Brazilian universities.

The research is limited to the results of the thesis and dissertations between the years 2015 and 2017, considering the graduate programs of the USP, UNICAMP, and UNESP. Five categories were defined regarding the propensity for the use of Aerial Data Collection Devices: Soil Diagnosis, Plant Diagnosis, Management of Grazing Areas, Crop Management, and Hydrographic Monitoring.

It was identified that more research is needed to reflect on how science can help its application in this strategic productive sector.

Pandemic, Family Farming and Information and Communication Technologies: research…

This editorial reflects on an event that marked the year 2020. The moment is of a pandemic, which brought up challenges already faced in history, but with an extra spice – the interrelation of People, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Perhaps this milestone has driven or even consolidated, a trend that has already been penetrating the social fabric since the “universalization” of digital devices and the Internet, called by Castells (1999) as the Information Society.
