This volume contains the Proceedings of The Third International Conference on Software, Services & Semantic Technologies (S3T) held in Bourgas, Bulgaria on September 1-3, 2011. It is the third S3T conference in a series of annually organized events supported by the F7 EU SISTER Project and hosted by Sofia University. The conference is aimed at providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest developments in the area of Software, Services and Intelligent Content and Semantics. The conference sessions and the contents of this volume are structured according to the conference track themes: Intelligent Content and Semantics (10 papers), Knowledge Management, Business Intelligence and Innovation (4 papers), Software and Services (6 papers), and Technology Enhanced Learning (9 papers). The papers published in this volume cover a wide range of topics related to the track themes. Particular emphasis is placed on applying intelligent semantic technologies in educational and professional environments with papers in the areas of Ontologies and Semantic Web Technologies, Web Data and Knowledge, Social Networks Analysis, Information Extraction and Visualisation, Semantic Search and Retrieval, E-learning, and User Modelling and Personalization.

The 14th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications (AIMSA 2010) was held in Varna, Bulgaria, during September 8–10, 2010. The AIMSA conference series has provided a biennial forum for the presen- tion of artificial intelligence research and development since 1984. The conference covers the full range of topics in artificial intelligence (AI) and related disciplines and provides an ideal forum for international scientific exchange between Central/Eastern Europe and the rest of the world. The 2010 AIMSA edition continued this tradition. For AIMSA 2010, we decided to place special emphasis on the application and leverage of AI technologies in the context of knowledge societies where knowledge creation, accessing, acquiring, and sharing empower individuals and communities. A number of AI techniques play a key role in responding to these challenges. AI is - tensively used in the development of systems for effective management and flexible and personalized access to large knowledge bases, in the Semantic Web technologies that enable sharing and reuse of and reasoning over semantically annotated resources, in the emerging social Semantic Web applications that aid humans to collaboratively build semantics, in the construction of intelligent environments for supporting (human and agent) learning, etc. In building such intelligent applications, AI techniques are typically combined with results from other disciplines such as the social sciences, distributed systems, databases, digital libraries, information retrieval, service-oriented applications, etc.
The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation? To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence. This profoundly ambitious and original book picks its way carefully through a vast tract of forbiddingly difficult intellectual terrain. Yet the writing is so lucid that it somehow makes it all seem easy. After an utterly engrossing journey that takes us to the frontiers of thinking about the human condition and the future of intelligent life, we find in Nick Bostrom's work nothing less than a reconceptualization of the essential task of our time.
Man-machine interaction is the interdisciplinary field, focused on a human and a machine in conjunction. It is the intersection of computer science, behavioural sciences, social psychology, ergonomics, security. It encompasses study, design, implementation, and evaluation of small- and large-scale, interacting, computing, hardware and software systems dedicated for human use. Man-machine interaction builds on supportive knowledge from both sides, the machine side providing techniques, methods and technologies relevant for computer graphics, visualisation, programming environments, the human side bringing elements of communication theory, linguistics, social sciences, models of behaviour. The discipline aims to improve ways in which machines and their users interact, making hardware and software systems better adapted to user's needs, more usable, more receptive, and optimised for desired properties.

This monograph is the second edition in the series, providing the reader with a selection of high-quality papers dedicated to current progress, new developments and research trends in man-machine interactions area. In particular, the topical subdivisions of this volume include human-computer interfaces, robot control and navigation systems, bio-data analysis and mining, pattern recognition for medical applications, sound, text and image processing, design and decision support, rough and fuzzy systems, crisp and fuzzy clustering, prediction and regression, algorithms and optimisation, and data management systems.
