“The Cuban Scientist” (or TCS for short) is a free and open access online journal where scientists from all branches of science and technology can share their research results with the community in the form of two-page reports, summarizing works already published in peer-reviewed journals.
TCS’s mission is to establish and strengthen ties among Cuban scientists by contributing to their self-awareness as a community, fostering collaboration and facilitating knowledge-sharing. It aims to serve as a free information layer bypassing geographical and institutional barriers. Our goal is that TCS one day becomes the reference point for ‘science made by Cubans’.
Who can publish?
We interpret ‘Cuban’ in an inclusive way, i.e. comprising all scientists who identify themselves with this community, regardless of their place of birth or where they live.

“We have proposed a hybrid Fuzzy Cognitive Map-based model that incorporates static expert knowledge and information automatically inferred from the data. The paper introduces a fast and deterministic algorithm to construct such a model and a post-optimization procedure to fine-tune the resulting architecture. Simulations showed the superiority of our proposal in problems devoted to modeling complex systems.”

“We proposed definitions and theorems regarding Fuzzy Cognitive Maps (FCMs), which allow estimating bounds for the activation value of each neuron and analyzing the covering and proximity of feasible activation spaces. The main theoretical findings suggest that the state space of any FCM model equipped with transfer F-functions shrinks infinitely with no guarantee for the FCM to converge to a fixed point but to its limit state space. This result, in conjunction with the covering and proximity values of FCM-based models, helps to understand their poor performance when solving complex simulation problems.”

“This work introduces a new neural network architecture that uses bidirectional associations-based pooling to extract high-level features and labels from multi-label data. Unlike the pooling approaches reported in the literature, our proposal does not require input data to have any topological properties as typically occurs with images and videos. The numerical results show that our bidirectional pooling helps reduce the number of problem features and labels while preserving the discriminatory power of the network.”

“Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGID) are a frequent motive for health care needs in gastroenterology, thus causing serious problems socially and in family dynamics. We study the clinical characteristics and natural history of the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in children and adolescents attending our outpatients' practice of pediatric gastroenterology, according to the new Rome criteria. We found that IBS is relatively frequent as a cause for functional Chronic Abdominal Pain (CAP) and that an interrogatory following Rome criteria is useful for its diagnosis.”
