21. TITLE: The educational inclusion of children with autism spectrum disorder in the Republic of Ecuador. AUTHOR:  Beatriz Maribel León Gavilanes. ABSTRACT: Educational inclusion is a process that allows students to access, participate and remain in the educational system, without exclusion, from the consideration and attention to their particular educational needs. This process must be given from ordinary education, since it should not distinguish between students with disabilities or not, or other conditions of development. From a universal environment, attention must be paid to everyone, to all of them. In Ecuador, several alternatives have been designed to contribute to educational inclusion. This work deals with the legal basis of this process, its status in Ecuador and the need to develop it from the attention to the educational needs of students with autism spectrum disorder. KEY WORDS: educational inclusion, autism spectrum disorder, Republic of Ecuador. ECUADOR.

Connectivism, technological instruments have facilitated access to large volumes of information, which are variously restricted. Nevertheless, the currents of open scientific work, oriented to software, have given rise to a more informed generation; the answer to which the teacher has a task of being in equal conditions, with respect to the new technological generations.  KEY WORDS: education, technology, software, decolonization, methodologies.

42. TITLE: Technology and public management. AUTHORS: Luís Alberto Cadena Hurtado, Félix Holger Filían Hurtado, Alejandra Teresa Maldonado Campi, Richard Javier Torres Vargas. ABSTRACT: In an extreme synthesis, the digital revolution and intelligent algorithms no longer places computers, machines and software in the role of mere instruments to improve our physical capabilities, since exponentially they will play a central role in the service public. The technologies transform the forms, the spaces, the times and the interaction modalities of those that participate in the social action, and for that reason, they require completely different organizational responses to those that demanded past technologies to incorporate situations where there was a spatio-temporal coincidence. The objective of this paper is to evaluate how technology is inserted as a management tool in public administration. KEY WORDS: Management, Public Administration, Electronic Government, technologies.

57. TITLE: Emotional interaction of blind people using artificial vision.  AUTHORS: Ángel Oswaldo Ocaña Guevara,  Oswaldo Geovanny Martinez Guashima,  Jorge Luis Paucar Samaniego, José Luis Pérez Rojas. ABSTRACT: The implementation of an electronic device of artificial vision was done that allows recognizing emotional features of the face and transforming them to vibration signals for people with visual disabilities, so they can interact in a real-time conversation facilitating non-verbal emotional expressions. The device consists of a computer vision cap that can detect a person's face, his neutral state, his smile expression and his expression of surprise; for this a collection of approximately 2600 images of 105 people was made for training their several expressions. The tests carried out on the device were aimed at measuring the recognition efficiency with respect to different variables.
