- ItemOptimization of the Critical Infrastructure Sector - Food Safety and Food Security Through Blockchain(ICI, 2020-06-30) Ciupercă, Ella Magdalena; Crăciun, Ioan; Vevera, Adrian VictorThe study of critical infrastructures in Romania is necessary to surpass the generalist approach, which has been preferred so far in the few specialized studies that have been carried out. Of course, a general view on the sectors, subsectors or criteria that qualify certain entities as critical infrastructure was extremely necessary in order to identify the effects of affecting the activities of these entities or to set up plans for crisis management or clear procedures for their routine operation. But for a country in order to become competitive and to succeed beyond the current level, it is necessary to approach the critical infrastructure subsectors in order to identify and propose new ways to optimize them, especially by incorporating the latest technologies. In this paper we aim to address the need to optimize the traceability of food products using blockchain technology, respectively a chain of blocks that stores information, which once received a timestamp can no longer be modified.
- ItemThe Great Reset – Education & Digital Literacy(ICI, 2020-12-20) Crăciun, IoanAs a consequence of the contemporary technological development, the use of digital technologies in education is constantly growing, with governments investing increasing amounts to digitize this field and education leaders finding ways to adapt their institutions to these realities. Schools, high schools and universities need to redesign their specific educational processes to include different approaches to teaching and learning, exploring the predictive value of data, and acquiring technological solutions. This approach not only raises huge practical and, especially, logistical problems, but it also opens up a wide range of opportunities to think about a 21st century education reset. Education must free itself from the old mindsets and meet the so-called 4th Idustrial Revolution requirements so, it must prepare young people for a world governed by scientific and technological progress and encourage them to think critically about how science, technology and innovation provide the necessary opportunities for social progress. This article has been inspired by the OECD report The Future of Education and Skills 2030, published in 2018, and uses the Great Reset term coined by the World Economic Forum specialists to explore the role of digital technologies in transforming education and more exactly the role of digital education, known as digital literacy, in preparing future generations as true agents of social transformation.
