Social Informatics Journal <p><strong>Social informatics journal</strong> prati globalni proces informatizacije društva i njegov uticaj na društvenu strukturu i društvene promene, kao i ulogu i položaj pojedinca u informatičkom društvu. Koordinacija razvoja društva i njegove globalne informatizacije je danas posebno važna tema jer od nje direktno zavisi prevazilaženja krize moderne civilizacije i njenog prelaska na put održivog i zdravog razvoja zasnovanog na ovladavanju i upravljanju informacijama i širokoj upotrebi novih znanja i tehnologija u svim sferama života. Osnovni ciljevi pokretanja <strong>Social informatics journal</strong> su identifikacija i analiza novih mogućnosti za razvoj čoveka i društva u novoj informacionoj realnosti, kao i novih pretnji i rizika za njihov život, koje već postoje ili mogu nastati u budućnost.</p> <p><strong>The Social Informatics journal</strong> focuses on the global process of informatization of society and its impact on social structure and changes, as well as the role and position of individuals in the information society. The coordination of society's development and its global informatization is a particularly crucial topic today. Overcoming the crisis of modern civilization and transitioning towards sustainable and healthy development depends directly on mastering and managing information and embracing new knowledge and technologies in all aspects of life. The main goals of the <strong>Social Informatics journal</strong> are to identify and analyze new opportunities for individual and societal development in the new informational reality, as well as to recognize and address potential threats and risks to their lives, both existing and emerging.</p> <p> </p> en-US (Momčilo B.

Lifelong learning becomes a necessity in reality, and proposals in developed countries for returning to college after graduation open up new opportunities for acquiring new knowledge. Digital literacy, communication skills with both humans and robots, and understanding complex problems may become key skills for the 21st century. Jobs in the fields of medicine and technological innovation are expected to be in high demand. Furthermore, the digitization of society requires an increase in digital competences. These competences encompass not only computer literacy but also readiness for collaboration, quick problem-solving, and understanding of social relationships in a digital context. The paper “Lifelong Learning and Digital Competences in the Era of Industry 5.0: Keys to Success in the Future of Work” highlights the importance of continuous education and the development of skills necessary in the modern work environment, which is increasingly shifting towards Industry 5.0 and digital transformation.</p> Ana Nešić Tomašević Copyright (c) 2023 Ana Nešić Tomašević Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0200 AN ETHICS CRISIS IN VIRTUAL MEDIA SPACE <p>This paper will address basic ethical issues in virtual space determined by global multidirectional networking through different space and time. Numerous ethical issues will be stressed which, as a result of the complex reflections of ubiquitous media convergence, determine each individual topic, from issues of personal data protection and information security, to strengthening credibility and building trust in the virtual community. In relation to the objectives and established development guidelines, different ethical dimensions, in their complexity and multi-layeredness in a digitally empowered future, should not be viewed in isolation but exclusively through their complementarity and a quality foundation for further in-depth research.</p> Aleksandra PenjIšević, Branislav Sančanin, Margarita Bogdanova Copyright (c) 2023 Aleksandra PenjIšević, Branislav Sančanin, Margarita Bogdanova Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0200 APPLIED INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES IN AGRICULTURE <p>This paper examines the possibility of transitioning towards sustainable food production, considering the accelerated growth of the world population and increased demand for food on one hand, and the consequences that the previous approach has had on the biosphere and sociosphere at a global level on the other hand. The first part of the paper presents alarming and precise data and facts that require an ultimate paradigm shift, this time based on the most powerful technological and scientific methods and practices to date. The second part establishes the relationships between the concepts of Agricultural Social Network (ASN), Agricultural Value Chain (AVC), new digital technologies and approaches, with the need for transition towards Society 5.0, where a balance between economic progress and a society tailored to human needs is established. In the third part, the technologies on which the new concept of “precision agriculture - PA” relies are identified, and a case study of the Agrosens digital platform is provided as a good practice example to support agricultural producers. Finally, the last part demonstrates, through the concrete example of Project Provenance Ltd., how the application of new technologies can connect processes and actors in Supply Chain Management (SCM) to establish transparency, efficiency, traceability, and other performance measures necessary for effective and responsible SCM. This enables the implementation of corrective actions and measures to promote responsible production, distribution, and consumption of food or other widely used products.</p> Branimir M.

On the scene come ERP systems that represent a wide range of business software for business management, ranging from financial management to operations management. In this whole process, the challenges of legal protection of personal data also arise.</p> Lazar Stošić, Aleksandra V.

While nanomaterials offer the potential for developing new devices in various industrial and scientific fields, they also provide revolutionary perspectives in disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment in humans. This review paper analyzes different aspects of nanoinformatics with a special focus on nanomedicine. Another important aspect is the use of informatics in further advancing the biological and clinical applications of basic research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanoinformatics can accelerate the development of the emerging field of nanomedicine, similar to what happened with the Human Genome and other -omics projects, through the exchange of modeling and simulation methods and tools, linking toxicity information with clinical and personal databases, or developing new approaches for scientific studies.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Aleksandar Đorđević Copyright (c) 2023 Aleksandar Đorđević Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0200 IMPROVING CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AND REDUCING RISK BY USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE <p>Architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry has large amounts of data, the analysis of which can predict risks such as project delays, project budget overruns, low resource use efficiency, environmental damage, reduced safety, and the like. Research has shown that 98% of construction projects are realized with the contracted budget and deadline exceeded. This paper aims to show the significant potential and possibilities of applying artificial intelligence (AI) in the AEC industry, pointing out the benefits and obstacles faced by the AEC industry during the implementation of AI. The benefits of applying AI in the AEC industry relate to increasing efficiency, reducing costs, increasing productivity, increasing safety, better planning and providing timely and accurate information. The key obstacles that hinder the implementation of AI in practice are high implementation costs, incomplete data, job loss due to automation, mistrust of AI technology, cyber vulnerability, and lack of understanding field of AI.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Milena Senjak Pejić, Mirjana Terzić, Dragana Stanojević, Igor Peško, Vladimir Mučenski Copyright (c) 2023 Milena Senjak Pejić, Mirjana Terzić, Dragana Stanojević, Igor Peško, Vladimir Mučenski Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0200 INTEGER SINGLE-ERROR-CORRECTING CODES AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE INTERNET CHECKSUM <p>The paper considers the possibility of using integer single-error-correcting (SEC) codes instead of the Internet checksum (IC). It is shown that such a replacement can be easily carried out, since the integer SEC codes are a generalization of the IC.</p> Aleksandar Radonjić, Igor Ristić, Ivan Šćepanović Copyright (c) 2023 Aleksandar Radonjić, Igor Ristić, Ivan Šćepanović Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0200
