    The Road to Branding in the Digital Age: The Power and Challenges of New Media Influencers

    This study aims to provide insights into the impact of new media influencers on brand management in the digital age. With the rise of social media, the role of influencers in guiding consumer decision-making has become increasingly prominent. This paper systematically analyzes the role of new media influencers in arousing consumers' "awareness", "interest", "desire" and "action" and their contribution to the whole brand management process, combining the brand value chain model and the co-branding normalization strategies. By comprehensively analyzing indicators such as the number of observers, the degree of interaction and the quality of content, this study successfully quantified the degree of influence of new media influencers at different stages. It was found that when choosing partners, brands should focus on their fit with the brand's core values, as well as on whether the influencer's audience segment matches the target market. Meanwhile, recommendations are made for choosing authentic and trustworthy influencers and establishing transparent partnerships in order to cope with market saturation and trust crises. In the Future Challenges and Solutions Outlook, in the face of changes in social media algorithms, the paper suggests that brands adopt a multi-channel strategy while emphasizing the importance of establishing clear KPIs and a collaborative framework. Finally, an in-depth analysis of the opportunities and challenges of the co-branding normalization strategies is presented, highlighting the importance of trust building, collaboration costs, consistency and public relations risks. This research provides practical data support and strategic recommendations for brand managers to better address brand management challenges in the digital age.

    Research on Algorithmic Gender Bias under the Paradigm of Machine Behavior Studies

    In the field of communication studies, machine behavior specifically refers to information dissemination activities involving artificial intelligence technology. As algorithms increasingly become the primary force in information dissemination, their potential gender bias becomes increasingly apparent. This paper, based on three research scopes in machine behavior studies: individual behavior, collective behavior, and human-machine interaction behavior, examines the gender bias exhibited by artificial intelligence entities in algorithms at these three levels. At the individual behavior level, the tendency of algorithm development to simplify features overlooks the diversity present in female society. The inherited data bias and human bias make it difficult to avoid gender discrimination. At the collective behavior level, the creation of opinion leader-type social robots expands the subject of information fog, making the concealed “gender discrimination against women” more covert. The use of large-scale machine armies manipulates search engine results, leading to severe gender bias in search engine outputs. At the hybrid human-machine behavior level, artificial intelligence shapes female images to construct female cognitive thinking. Algorithms acquire human bias during interaction with users, and social robots amplify gender bias issues through mixed human-machine behavior.

    On the Scope of Liability for Negligence in Maritime Search and Rescue under the Background of the Amendment to the Maritime Code

    In the era of contract-based maritime rescue under the background of amendments to the Maritime Code, disputes arise regarding whether a rescuer who, due to negligence, causes harm to the assisted party should bear tort liability. When a rescuer negligently causes harm to the assisted party during maritime rescue operations, it constitutes concurrent liability for tort and breach of contract. The rescuer should bear the responsibility for compensating the damages. Specifically, in establishing liability, it is essential to adhere to the standards identical to those in the Tort Liability section of the Civil Code. However, in determining the scope of liability, the principle of full compensation should not be strictly applied and can be appropriately relaxed. First, after posing the question, this paper employs a legal normative analysis method to explore the applicable domestic and foreign laws as well as international treaties related to the issue. The current legal system’s stance on the matter is derived from legal norms. Analyzing the rights and obligations relationship between the rescuer and the assisted party from the perspective of balancing interests aims to achieve a new balance of interests between the two parties. Secondly, by comparing the Maritime Code with the Civil Code, the specific differences between the Maritime Code and the Civil Code provisions are identified. Additionally, considering the inherent characteristics of the Maritime Code, an analysis is conducted to differentiate the establishment and scope of liability for negligence-induced maritime rescue. Thirdly, through comparative analysis, it is determined that the rescuer should bear liability for damages resulting from negligent infringement, but the scope of liability can be appropriately limited. Moreover, a comparison between the maritime rescue system and relevant systems is made to clarify the relationship between the maritime rescue system and other relevant systems, providing theoretical support for the amendment of the Maritime Code. Finally, solutions and recommendations are proposed for the issues raised in the context of amendments to the Maritime Code.

    The Contemporary Value of the Development of Intangible Cultural Heritage Animation

    The protection and inheritance development of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) has seen the significant involvement of emerging media, playing a crucial role in promoting the widespread dissemination and fostering the protection and inheritance of ICH culture. Among various new media matrices, animated imagery has emerged as a formidable force in the past decade, playing a vital role in the protection and inheritance of ICH, showcasing the contemporary value of the development of ICH animation. Examining the current status of the development of ICH animation, there is a cultural, technological, and skillful integration between ICH and animation. This synergy generates a force for development, highlighting prominent characteristics in three aspects: content reconstruction, form reshaping, and the coexistence of values. However, after the processes of “reconstruction” and “reshaping,” a new issue arises in the rapid development of ICH animation—whether the original connotations of ICH culture can be accurately preserved.

    Exploring Online Chinese-English Bilingual Content and Language Integrated Learning Classrooms Through Moment Analysis

    Bilingual education studies consider the fluid and dynamic linguistic repetoire of teachers and students as helpful resources accomplishing communicative goals in real-life context. This study examines the translanguaging practices of Chinese-English bilingual Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) classrooms in an online environment. Data was collected through partiticpant classroom observation and interviews. Moment analysis is employed to analyze the creativity and costs of translanguaging moments of the stakeholders. The classroom observation demonstrated translanguaging, as a co-constructed communicative tool, was initiated both by the teacher and students as translanguaging agents. Specifically, peer interaction and question answering were two main contexts in which students initiated translanguaging. And the teacher initiated translanguging in three contexts, namely, acamedic content knowledge teaching, classroom feedback and classroom management. Results from interviews with the teacher and students revealed that English proficiency might be the primary factor spurring translanguaging practices. Weaker English proficiency would lead to more active translanguaging praxis. Besides, translanguaging forms might be mediated by socio- and cultural-linguistic factors. English is used to express compliment and approval while Chinese will be employed to offer constructive criticism. Lastly, the costs of translanguaging moments were furthure analyzed. It is concluded that students’ translanguaging in the context of peer discussion lowered their cost of communication. Through code-mixing students’ confidence in solving academic problems is boosted and their engagement in group project is promoted as well. Teacher’s translanguaging lowered teacher’s teaching cost and students’ learning cost whereby the teacher-student confidence was co-constructed in this specific context. Whilst translanguaging pedagogy is endorsed in terms of content knowledge teaching and learning, it remains unclear whether the English proficiency is facilitated. Current research indicates it is important to be critical of translanguaging costs in integrating content and language learning.

    Family Emotional Decorative Paintings: Interaction Design for Communication

    This paper describes an approach applied to decorative home paintings: an emotional interaction approach. The study utilizes the theory of constructed emotion and the Wizard of Oz research methodology to extend the user's emotional experience in home scenarios with emotional self-reflection and regulation. Family Emotion Decorative Painting uses the family-shared photo library as the image base data, obtains the emotion type through facial expression and voice emotion recognition, and correlates the moment's emotion with the emotion reacted in the picture. Through qualitative research, we found that family emotional decorative painting can bring emotional arousal and soothing to participants. Family Emotional Decorative Paintings also provoked reflection on technology in and around the home. These findings suggest several opportunities, such as designing for anticipation, better supporting reflection on the past. The study also allowed the team to question the traditional interaction design view that more frequent and prolonged human-computer interactions are a measure of good design. The team will next focus on ways for users to engage in novel and meaningful ways outside of the application.

    From Gaze to Rebel: A Study of Female Figures in Art History

    This paper discusses the evolution of women's portrayal in art, from objectified figures in early history to empowered subjects in modern times. Initially, women were depicted through the male gaze, embodying idealized beauty or fulfilling societal roles. During the Renaissance, this trend continued with artists like Raffaello Santi, who focused on physical beauty but often overlooked real-life women's experiences. The paper then highlights a shift to representing everyday women, as seen in works like Jean François Millet's "The Gleaners," yet these portrayals still echoed traditional gender norms. The narrative progresses with the emergence of female artists challenging these conventional depictions. Figures like Kathe Kollwitz and Sylvia Sleigh reversed the male gaze, empowering women as active subjects in art. The paper concludes by emphasizing the transformation in art from objectifying women to portraying them as autonomous and influential, mirroring societal shifts in gender roles and perceptions.
