In an online survey with n = 130 participants potential factors influencing initial trust in AI were asked. These are (1) digital affinity of the respondent, (2) expert status in production management of the respondent, (3) perceived capabilities of the AI, (4) perceived explainablitiy of the AI, (5) predictability of the decision situation and (6) costs of a wrong decision in the present decision situation.
The factors (1) and (2) were measured as between subjects, whereas the factors (3) - (6) are within subject factors.
This dataset consists of raw sequencing data (fasta) and analysed relative abundance data (histograms of the dominant 10 species in respective taxonomic ranks ). This project shows the first bacterial diversity profiling of high-microbial-abundance wild tropical marine sponges of southern South China Sea, which are Aaptos aaptos and Xestospongia muta from Bidong and Redang islands, Malaysia. Marine sponges are acknowledged as a bacterial hotspot and resource of novel natural products or genetic material. However, sponge-associated bacteria are difficult to be cultivated and the production of their desirable metabolites are inadequate in terms of rate and quantity, yet bioinformatics and metagenomics tools are progressing. Therefore, the diversity profiling of bacterial communities in marine sponges reveals the approximate gene pool for the gene mining or isolation of bacteria that are potentially and commercially beneficial in manufacturing industry, medicine, or agriculture. The bacterial community data exploited from this project is useful for critical comparison through additional or integrated bioinformatics processing with other marine sponge-associated bacterial community profile data. The community data of this project also unveils some general physiological function of the sponge-associated bacterial assemblage in its local environment. In the data provided, the sponge-associated bacterial communities in A. aaptos of Pulau Bidong, A. aaptos of Pulau Redang, and X. muta of Pulau Bidong have been denoted by A, B, and M, respectively.

The Pan-African orogeny in Cameroon yielded two belts or domains: (i) the northern domain known as Poly-Kebbi group and (ii) the southern domain or Yaoundé group have sandwiched the central Adamawa-Yade Archaean block. North-south and south-north facing subductions have yielded many Pan-African calk-alkaline and High-K calk-alkaline intrusions in this Adamawa-Yade block. This study presents the petrography and geochemistry of the longest intrusive Bape massif (60 km-long) of the Adamawa-Yade block. The peculiar feature of the Bape granitoids is the occurrence of adakitic rocks in addition to classical High-K calc-akaline to shoshonitic series. These new results and the available data allow a conclusion that this intrusion and neighbouring ones are linked to a south-north facing subduction of a hot Yaoundé oceanic crust under the Archaean Adamawa-Yade block. The geochemical data, whole-rock analyses including major elements expressed in wt.% of oxides and trace elements expressed in terms of parts per million (ppm).
This dataset includes preprocessed SPM EEG data files (from MATLAB; .mat and .dat files) from 30 participants, 15 younger and 15 older adults. EEG was recorded using the BioSemi system (64 electrodes) while participants performed visually guided isotonic dorsiflexion (left leg, 2 min). Force recorded during the dorsiflexion task is also included. More details regarding data recording conditions can be found in Spedden et al 2020, NeuroImage: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroimage.2020.116982

Gambling Disorder (GD) is a behavioral addiction characterized by the persistence of recurrent gambling behaviors despite serious adverse consequences. One of the key features of GD is a marked inability to delay gratification and an overall impairment of decision-making mechanisms. Indeed, in intertemporal choice (ITC) tasks, GDs usually display a marked tendency to prefer smaller-sooner over larger-later rewards (temporal discounting, TD). However, ITC represents a highly declarative measure, and as such might not be sensitive to implicit decision biases. Here we sought to uncover the implicit mechanisms underlying the ITC impairment in GDs by employing the process tracing method of mouse kinematics. To this aim, we collected and analyzed ITCs and kinematics measures from 24 PGs and 23 matched healthy control participants (HCs). In line with the relevant literature, the results showed that PGs discounted future rewards more steeply compared to HCs. Additionally, the results of kinematics analyses showed that PGs were characterized by a strong bias toward the immediate option, which was associated with straight-line trajectories. Conversely, the delayed option was selected with edge-curved trajectories, indicating a bias toward the immediate option which was revised in later stages of processing. Interestingly, kinematics indices were also found to be predictive of individual discounting preferences (i.e., discount rates) across the two groups. Taken together, these results suggest that kinematics indices, by revealing hidden and implicit patterns of attraction toward the unselected choice option, may represent reliable behavioral markers of TD in gambling disorder.
The quantity of gaseous oxygen dissolved in water is generally known as Dissolved Oxygen. However, the oxygen may dissolve in other liquids too. To determine the concentration of Dissolved Oxygen in Gasoline a probe was used to estimate oxygen concentration at different experimental conditions. Comparing the experiments performed on Gasoline and Deionized Water it was found that for gasoline, the equilibrium point was reached earlier, while for the Deionized Water it took a long time for the initial reading to be attained after purging. In determining the mass transfer coefficients of Gasoline and Deionized Water it was found that Gasoline displayed a higher mass transfer coefficient value than Deionized Water. It is concluded that the increase in stirring speed, increases, the mass transfer coefficient and it is more prominent for gasoline. The aim of this work was to find the ability of the gasoline to dissolve oxygen. From the research it was reckoned that the Dissolved Oxygen and free water present in the tanked Gasoline, could result in electrochemical corrosion over a period of time.
