Li, W., Yang, Q., & Du, W. (2022). Tourist Sentiment Mining Based on Deep Learning. In C. Thomas (Ed.), Artificial Intelligence (Vol. 8). IntechOpen. https://doi.org/10.5772/intechopen.98836
Mining the sentiment of the user on the internet via the context plays a significant role in uncovering the human emotion and in determining the exactness of the underlying emotion in the context. An increasingly enormous number of user-generated content (UGC) in social media and online travel platforms lead to development of data-driven sentiment analysis (SA), and most extant SA in the domain of tourism is conducted using document-based SA (DBSA). However, DBSA cannot be used to examine what specific aspects need to be improved or disclose the unknown dimensions that affect the overall sentiment like aspect-based SA (ABSA). ABSA requires accurate identification of the aspects and sentiment orientation in the UGC. In this book chapter, we illustrate the contribution of data mining based on deep learning in sentiment and emotion detection.
Hannam, K., Butler, G., Witte, A., & Zuev, D. (2021). Tourist’s mobilities: Walking, cycling, driving and waiting. Tourist Studies, 1–13. https://doi.org/https://doi.org/10.1177/1468797621992931
This commentary reviews recent research in terms of tourist’s mobilities in terms practices of walking, cycling and driving. It concludes by reflecting on the contemporary lock down of travel in terms of the global pandemic and its consequences for waiting, stillness and immobility – particularly in terms of flying.
Cai, Y. (2022). To follow or overcome our nature? GREGORIANUM, 103(4), 691–712. https://doi.org/10.32060/Gregorianum.103/4.2022.691-712
The doctrine of original sin gives people the impression that the goodness of human nature is under-evaluated in the Christian theological tradition. The Chinese philosopher Mencius is famous for his teaching on the goodness of human nature. Reading Mencius and Thomas Aquinas side by side, this article argues that the Mencian teaching on human nature brings us to affirm the goodness of human nature by recovering the significance of the image of God for the Christian doctrine of human nature. If we seek the goodness of human nature in the possibilities to become good, it is natural to see that even in the fallen state the possibilities of becoming like God remain in human nature imprinted with the image of God. It is open to the culmination of a gradual progression to its perfection.

Macau, Macau Business, MAG, MB, MB Featured, Opinion | New year; old problem. As the pandemic rolls on, so many calls for economic diversification in Macau as a survival strategy have been heard, loud and long, that, as the law of diminishing returns tells us, their effects recede.

Teixeira, V., & Lai, M. (2021). The use Robotics in the intervention with children with ASD in Macao: a pilot study with Milo. Revista Portuguesa de Investigação Educacional, 21, 1–26. https://doi.org/10.34632/investigacaoeducacional.2021.10041
Robotics are being used in the intervention with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in many places and already for many years. Many robots were developed and different studies are being made in order to evaluate its effectiveness. “Socially Assistive Robotics” is shown to be effective in different areas mainly in social and emotional development. Milo, a robot developed by a team led by Richard Margolin for the Robots4Autism program (RoboKind, 2020), is one of the robots whose use is reported to be successful. In Macao there is no report of studies or experiences on the use of robots in the intervention with children with ASD. In a collaboration between the Macao Science Centre, the Macao Autism Association (MAA) and the University of Saint Joseph, an exploratory study was developed to understand the applicability of Milo to the work with children with ASD in Macao. The study showed that the robot is able to facilitate social and emotional competences of children with ASD. However, several limitations including language, cultural differences, the inexperienced facilitators and the level of sessions are too simple for the participants to be aware of that may affect the effectiveness of the intervention. It is important to show that the adoption of Milo in Macao for intervening children with ASD can be further implemented, with better practical solutions.
Iong, K. Y., & Phillips, J. O. L. (2023). The transformation of government employees’ behavioural intention towards the adoption of E-government services: An empirical study. Social Sciences & Humanities Open, 7(1), 100485. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ssaho.2023.100485
Electronic government is increasingly dominant in the study of public administration. In analysing people's behavioural factors towards the adoption of e-services, most previous studies targeted the adult population, while those on government employees are minimal. Government employees have an essential function in the process of government operation; they can be regarded as the principal medium of communication between the service provider (government) and the end-users (citizens). This study was designed to understand the government employees' behavioural factors on their intentions towards adopting e-government services. A set of semi-structured interview questions was developed based on the prior literature on the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) and e-government studies. Ten in-depth interviews were conducted in Macao SAR (Special Administrative Region). In addition to analysing the three primary constructs of TPB, the factor of Trust and some enablers and hindrances were identified. Significant findings were yielded while investigating how the government employees perceived the e-services and how they regarded the general public's perception of this issue. This contextualisation would help policymakers look at this issue from different perspectives and design feasible interventions according to group alignment strategies.

Arraut, I. (2023). The solution to the Hardy’s paradox (arXiv:2106.06397). arXiv. https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.2106.06397
By using both, the weak-value formulation as well as the standard probabilistic approach, we analyze the Hardy's experiment introducing a complex and dimensionless parameter ($\epsilon$) which eliminates the assumption of complete annihilation when both, the electron and the positron departing from a common origin, cross the intersection point $P$. We then find that the paradox does not exist for all the possible values taken by the parameter. The apparent paradox only appears when $\epsilon=1$; however, even in this case we can interpret this result as a natural consequence of the fact that the particles can cross the point $P$, but at different times due to a natural consequence of the energy-time uncertainty principle.
