    Understanding Audience Participation in Interactive Theater Performances2014Ingår i: Proceeding NordiCHI '14 Proceedings of the 8th Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction: fun, Fast, Foundational, New York: ACM Press, 2014, 608-617 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents an empirical study investigating audience participation in an interactive theater performance. During the performance, audience members were enticed to act upon and contribute to the performance by sharing their opinions, emotions, values and other thoughts, by means of text messages that were integrated into the performance itself. The study aimed at understanding the main characteristics of audience participation in the interactive performance, as well as the role of communication technology as a medium enabling social participation. The results draw attention to the immediate and reflective facets of audience participation, both unfolding at two different but interrelated levels of interactions: an individual and collective one.

    Ethics, Logs and Videotape: Ethics in Large Scale User Trials and User Generated Content2011Ingår i: CHI '11 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems Vancouver, BC, Canada — May 07 - 12, 2011, Vancouver, Canada: ACM Press , 2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    As new technologies are appropriated by researchers, the community must come to terms with the evolving ethical responsibilities we have towards participants. This workshop brings together researchers to discuss the ethical issues of running large-scale user trials, and to provide guidance for future research. Trials of the scale of 10s or 100s of thousands of participants offer great potential benefits in terms of attracting users from vastly different geographical and social contexts, but raise significant ethical challenges. The inability to ensure user understanding of the information required to provide informed consent and problems involved in making users aware of the implications of the information being collected all beg the question: how can researchers ethically take advantage of the opportunities these new technologies afford?

    Current Safety Concerns with Human Papillomavirus Vaccine: A Cluster Analysis of Reports in VigiBase (R)2017Ingår i: Drug Safety, ISSN 0114-5916, E-ISSN 1179-1942, Vol. 40, nr 1, 81-90 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction A number of safety signals-complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)-have emerged with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines, which share a similar pattern of symptomatology. Previous signal evaluations and epidemiological studies have largely relied on traditional methodologies and signals have been considered individually. Objective The aim of this study was to explore global reporting patterns for HPV vaccine for subgroups of reports with similar adverse event (AE) profiles. Methods All individual case safety reports (reports) for HPV vaccines in VigiBase (R) until 1 January 2015 were identified. A statistical cluster analysis algorithm was used to identify natural groupings based on AE profiles in a data-driven exploratory analysis. Clinical assessment of the clusters was performed to identify clusters relevant to current safety concerns. Results Overall, 54 clusters containing at least five reports were identified. The four largest clusters included 71 % of the analysed HPV reports and described AEs included in the product label. Four smaller clusters were identified to include case reports relevant to ongoing safety concerns (total of 694 cases). In all four of these clusters, the most commonly reported AE terms were headache and dizziness and fatigue or syncope; three of these four AE terms were reported in >50 % of the reports included in the clusters. These clusters had a higher proportion of serious cases compared with HPV reports overall (44-89 % in the clusters compared with 24 %). Furthermore, only a minority of reports included in these clusters included AE terms of diagnoses to explain these symptoms. Using proportional reporting ratios, the combination of headache and dizziness with either fatigue or syncope was found to be more commonly reported in HPV vaccine reports compared with non-HPV vaccine reports for females aged 9-25 years. This disproportionality remained when results were stratified by age and when those countries reporting the signals of CRPS (Japan) and POTS (Denmark) were excluded. Conclusions Cluster analysis reveals additional reports of AEs following HPV vaccination that are serious in nature and describe symptoms that overlap those reported in cases from the recent safety signals (POTS, CRPS, and CFS), but which do not report explicit diagnoses. While the causal association between HPV vaccination and these AEs remains uncertain, more extensive analyses of spontaneous reports can better identify the relevant case series for thorough signal evaluation.

    Balancing Security and Energy Consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks2007Ingår i: Proceedings 3rd International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks (MSN 2007) / [ed] Hongke Zhang et al., Berlin/Heidelberg: Springer , 2007, 469-480 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Appling security to messages traveling over wireless links in sensor nodes requires additional energy. This paper describes our suggestions on balancing the level of security and energy consumption based on our measurements using CrossBow and Ember sensor nodes. It was found that the node microcontroller's CPU operates for substantially longer times for both hashing and encryption operations compared to the time for handling messages without any security. However, this has little overall impact on energy consumption. The longer high-power radio transmission times due to hashing were especially costly. For the full operational mode, with CPU processing and also radio transmission of messages, our results indicate that the lifetime of a transmitting node in a security regime is only about one-half of the lifetime without security. Hence, we provided design guidelines to apply security with energy consideration for WSN. They include 2 to 8 bytes MACs for integrity and authentication instead of SHA-1, and the size of messages should match the steps of encryption algorithms.

    Key Establishment Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks2007Ingår i: Global and Homeland Security (MASS-GHS 2007), IEE , 2007, 1-6 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the design, prototype implementation and deployment of a key management protocol for sensor networks. In order to exchange protected messages between sensor nodes in a wireless sensor network, secret shared cryptographic keys must be established between the nodes of the network. Several key management schemes have been proposed in the literature, but these schemes are not suitable for real-life deployment. In this paper, we approach the problems of key management protocol differently from other reported results. We first analyzed functionality, feasibility and flexibility of the current key management protocols. Then, we introduce the concept of the Trusted Base Station as the foundation of our new protocol. The results of our implementation and deployment in a real WSN environment show that our theoretical results and claims are supported by the results of practical tests and measurements of operational efficiency.

    Measurement of Energy Costs of Security in Wireless Sensor Nodes2007Ingår i: Proceedings - International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks, ICCCN, IEEE , 2007, 95-102 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Both correct transmission using hashing and protection of messages using encryption in sensor nodes require additional energy. This paper describes our measurement results for energy consumption in CrossBow and Ember sensor nodes for the process of exchanging data messages between nodes both in the clear and in a protected form. Full strength algorithms were loaded into and executed in nodes. It was found that the CPU operates for substantially longer times for both hashing and encryption operations compared to the time for handling messages without any security. The longer radio transmission times due to hashing were especially costly. Hence, security algorithms have great impacts on energy consumption in sensor nodes. For the full operational mode, with CPU processing and also radio transmission of messages, our results indicate that the lifetime of a transmitting node in a security regime is only about onehalf of the lifetime without security.

    Assessment of Energy Consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks: A Case Study for Security Algorithms2007Ingår i: Proceedings of IEEE International Workshop on Wireless and Sensor Networks Security (IEEE WSNS 2007), IEEE , 2007, 1-6 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    WSN nodes are usually powered by batteries. Energy consumption during node operation determines battery life. Power consumption depends on the different hardware and software components in a WSN node and their various activities. In order to determine the life of the battery, we must measure the energy consumption of a node that is active in a network. That is, we must know the power consumption and time duration for node activities including computations, and RF transmission and reception. In this paper, we introduce an easy and accurate method for dynamic energy measurements without disturbing the node or network. The method consists of an oscilloscope, which can stream digitized voltages into a PC, which calculates the profile of energy consumption. We employed this capability to determine energy consumption for different security algorithms in CrossBow MICA2 nodes.

    Extending the NegEx Lexicon for Multiple Languages2013Ingår i: Proceedings of the 14th World Congress on Medical and Health Informatics / [ed] Christoph Ulrich Lehmann, Elske Ammenwerth, Christian Nøhr, IOS Press, 2013, Vol. 192, 677-681 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We translated an existing English negation lexicon (NegEx) to Swedish, French, and German and compared the lexicon on corpora from each language. We observed Zipf’s law for all languages, i.e., a few phrases occur a large number of times, and a large number of phrases occur fewer times. Negation triggers “no” and “not” were common for all languages; however, other triggers varied considerably. The lexicon is available in OWL and RDF format and can be extended to other languages. We discuss the challenges in translating negation triggers to other languages and issues in representing multilingual lexical knowledge.

    Using parallel corpora to create a Greek-English dictionary with Uplug2007Ingår i: NODALIDA 2007 PROCEEDINGS / [ed] Joakim Nivre, Heiki-Jaan Kaalep, Kadri Muischnek and Mare Koit, 2007, 212-215 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the construction of a Greek-English bilingual dictionary from parallel corpora that were created manually by collected documents retrieved from the Internet. The parallel corpora processing was performed by the Uplug word alignment system without the use of language specific information. A sample was extracted from the population of suggested translations and was included in questionnaires that were sent out to Greek-English speakers who evaluated the sample based on the quality of the translation pairs. For the suggested translation pairs of the sample belonging to the stratum with the higher frequency of occurrence, 67.11% correct translations were achieved. With an overall 50.63% of correct translations of the sample, the results were promising considering the minimal optimisation of the corpus and the differences between the two lan- guages.

    A Socio-technical Analysis of Information Systems Security Assurance: A Case Study for Effective Assurance2006Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the concepts of Information System (IS) security assurance using a socio-technical framework. IS security assurance deals with the problem of estimating how well a particular security system will function efficiently and effectively in a specific operational environment. In such environments, the IS interact with other systems such as ethical, legal, operational and administrative. Security failure in any of these systems may result in security failure of the whole system.

    In this thesis a socio-technical framework is used to examine culture, usability problems, security internal controls, security requirements and re-use of security requirements of TANESCO information systems. TANESCO is the energy utility company in Tanzania where the case study was conducted. Results show that culture affects the way people approach IS security. Also results show that the socio-technical framework is effective in modeling systems security and its environment. The re-use of security requirements is also shown to significantly minimise the time taken when developing and improving security requirements for an IS.

    The overall purpose of this thesis has been to develop a framework for information systems security assurance. The resulting framework of thinking brings together numerous assurance concepts into a coherent explanation that should be useful for any organisation or evaluators seeking to understand the underlying principals of systems security assurance. It contains organisational, cultural, and technical issues that should be looked at when considering and applying systems security assurance methods and techniques.

    ICT Platform Integration - MCDM Based Framework for the Establishment of Value Network: Case Study: Mozambique Government Electronic Network (GovNet)2011Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The selection of ICT service providers are among many of the challenges in building networks (intranets and extensions to the Internet) due to the high investment on equipment (CAPEX) and on operational costs (OPEX). This thesis proposes a Multi-Criteria Decision Method based decision support framework via the deployment of the Analytical Hierarchy Process method that can be used to improve selection and evaluation practices. The work deals explicitly with the role of ICT in supporting the corporate mission, and goals, in building the organization value network. It helps also in planning and defining the access to the Internet and strategies for making critical ICT related decisions. A specific study, The Government Electronic Network Project in Mozambique, has been used as a use case for the developed model and for validating the framework. The thesis also covers aspects related to the broader eGovernment process in Mozambique, such as the architecture, the principles, and the associated IT protocols and standards required for the interoperability of the respective eGovernment systems.

    The framework and recommendations are expected to contribute in assisting organizations to increase the usage and improve the management of IT platforms and services. In addition, they should help in bettering the systematization of the input data in specifying the requirements for the services offered by Internet service providers. The model should bring to the attention of decision-makers many factors that are currently neither considered nor are central to the selection processes. Furthermore, the decision-makers can use the framework in explaining and describing the investment decisions behind ICT projects in the context of the organization value network.

    Government Network and Information Security MCDM Framework for the Selection of Security Mechanisms:  2005Ingår i: Proceedings of CNIS 2005 / [ed] M.H. Hamza, Phoenix, USA: Acta Press , 2005Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The establishment of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Intranets and Internet access channels by Governments raises the need of making sure that only authorized people access the Government VPN resources. The large base of network security mechanisms and VPN implementation alternatives available makes it difficult to select the “optimal” security mechanisms or controls to be used in order to ensure the required or defined level of security for a specific VPN. This paper addresses the security mechanisms selection problem by proposing a MCDM model for structuring the VPN selection decision problem. Data collected from the Government Network Project (GovNet) being implemented in Mozambique was used to support both the development and validation of the Model.

    Abstract [en]

    The development of Internet, networking and access technologies is providing a wide variety of Internet interconnection alternatives. The availability of several options in the Internet interconnection market makes it difficult to select the "optimal" alternative for a specific end-user in a specific context. A MCDM based model for structuring and solving the Internet access technologies selection decision problem is proposed. The applicability and validation of this approach is demonstrated in a case study in Mozambique

    GovNet e-Mail System Capacity Planning2007Ingår i: IST-Africa 2007 Conference Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham & Miriam Cunningham, 2007Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Electronic Government Network (GovNet) e-Mail System, one of the services offered as part of the GovNet Project in Mozambique is expanding. A significant growth in the number of users of the GovNet e-Mail system is expected in the next couple of months due to the addition of 63 new sites /institutions as part of the GovNet-Extension Project. To address the expected demand on the GovNet IT resources there are scientifically proven methods and processes that can aid the planning of the required networking and IT resources. This paper tries to propose an approach to be followed as part of the process of capacity planning for the GovNet e-Mail System storage and bandwidth capacity. All the data in support of the suggested method were collected during the pilot phase of the GovNet through automatic traffic collection application and through interviews of the IT managers of the government institutions benefiting from the GovNet services.

    Abstract [en]

    The Mozambique eGovernment Strategy has, as one of its objectives, the use of ICTs to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the public service delivery.  The achievement of this objective depends on the development and deployment of several information systems, such as the implementation of a centralized and government-wide e-mail system, instant messaging and other common communication services. In this paper we analyse the implications resulting from the current approach of using different Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and disaggregated e-mail systems for e-mail communications between public institutions in Mozambique and we propose another approach to the Government of Mozambique for e-mail communication. The information and data used for the analysis were collected through interviews, questionnaires and GovNet statistics and traffic measurements. The main contribution consisted in applying scientific approach for advising the most appropriate alternative of e-mail system for the Government of Mozambique.

    Tradable Performance-Based CO₂ Emissions Standards: Walking on Thin Ice?2016Ingår i: Energy: Expectations and Uncertainty: 39th International Conference Proceedings of the International Association for Energy Economics, International Association for Energy Economics , 2016, 1-28 s.Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate policy, like climate change itself, is subject to debate. Partially due to the political deadlock in Washington, DC, US climate policy, historically, has been driven mainly by state or regional effort until the recently introduced federal Clean Power Plan (CPP). Instead of a traditional mass-based standard, the US CPP stipulates a state-specific performance-based CO2 emission standard and delegates considerable flexibility to the states in achieving the standard. Typically, there are two sets of policy tools available: a tradable performance-based and a mass-based permit program. We analyze these two related but distinct standards when they are subject to imperfect competition in the product and/or permit markets. Stylized models are developed to produce general conclusions. Detailed models that account for heterogenous technologies and the transmission network are developed to evaluate policy efficiency. Depending on the scenarios under consideration, the resulting problem could be either a complementarity problem or a Stackelberg leaderfollower game, which is implemented as a mathematical program with equilibrium constraints (MPEC). We overcome the nonconvexity of MPECs by reformulating them as mixed integer problems. We show that while the cross-subsidy inherent in the performance-based standard that might effectively reduce power prices, it could inflate energy demand, thereby rendering permits scarce. When the leader in a Stackelberg formulation has a relatively clean endowment under the performancebased standard, its ability to manipulate the electricity market as well as to lower permit prices might worsen the market outcomes compared to its mass-based counterpart. On the other hand, when the leader has a relatively dirty endowment, the "cross-subsidy" could be the dominant force leading to a higher social welfare compared to the mass-based program. This paper contributes to the current policy debates in regulating emissions from the US power sector and highlights different incentives created by the mass- and performance-based standards.

    Normative Multi-Agent Systems: Report from Dagstuhl Seminar 151312015Proceedings (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 15131 “Normative Multi-Agent Systems”. Normative systems are systems in the behavior of which norms play a role and which need normative concepts in order to be described or specified. A normative multi-agent system combines models for normative systems (dealing for example with obligations, permissions and prohibitions) with models for multi-agent systems. Normative multi-agent systems provide a promising model for human and artificial agent coordination because they integrate norms and individual intelligence. They are a prime example of the use of sociological theories in multi- agent systems, and therefore of the relation between agent theory—both multi-agent systems and autonomous agents—and the social sciences—sociology, philosophy, economics, legal science, etc. The aim of this Dagstuhl Seminar was to feature two fresh themes in broader computing and software engineering: social computing and governance. These themes are highly interdis- ciplinary, bringing together research strands from computing, information sciences, economics, sociology, and psychology. Further there is considerable excitement about these areas in aca- demia, industry, and public policy organizations. Our third theme was agreement technologies, a more traditional topic but nonetheless relevant for the NorMAS community. A norm is a fun- damental social construct. Norms define the essential fabric of a society. Our purpose in this seminar was to explore the connections of norms to each of the themes, especially from a com- putational perspective. Moreover, the seminar has been conceived for the writing of a volume titled “Handbook of Normative Multi Agent Systems” aimed to become a standard reference in the field and to provide guidelines for future research in normative multi-agent systems.

    The value of capacity sizing under risk aversion and operational flexibility2013Ingår i: IEEE transactions on engineering management, ISSN 0018-9391, Vol. 60, nr 2, 272-288 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Risk aversion typically erodes the value of an investment opportunity, often increasing the incentive to delay investment. Although this may be true when the decision maker has discretion only over the timing of investment, any additional discretion over the capacity of a project may lead to different results. In this paper, we extend the traditional real options approach by allowing for discretion over capacity while incorporating risk aversion and operational flexibility in the form of suspension and resumption options. In contrast to a project without scalable capacity, we find that increased risk aversion may actually facilitate investment because it decreases the optimal capacity of the project. Finally, we illustrate how the relative loss in the value of the investment opportunity due to an incorrect capacity choice may become less pronounced with increasing risk aversion and uncertainty.

    Optionality and Policymaking in Re-Transforming the British Power Market2014Ingår i: Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy, ISSN 2160-5882, E-ISSN 2160-5890, Vol. 3, nr 2, 79-100 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Conventional models to support policymaking for the energy sector have been largely based on deterministic or static settings that focus on planning welfare-maximising investment pathways. But, in a liberalised market, since investments are made by competitive, profit-maximising companies, the increased intervention of government policy in the trading arrangements creates uncertain responses to incentives. Industry may perceive policy risks to be high, and major companies may choose to act more cautiously than governments expect. This presents a modelling challenge, and we propose an extension to the use of real options in this context. We model several features of the low-carbon investment context, viz., irreversibility, delay, and competition, which impinge upon the radical policy imperatives for structural change in electricity markets to meet ambitious sustainability targets.

    Duopolistic competition under risk aversion and uncertainty2014Ingår i: European Journal of Operational Research, ISSN 0377-2217, Vol. 236, nr 2, 643-656 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A monopolist typically defers entry into an industry as both price uncertainty and the level of risk aversion increase. By contrast, the presence of a rival typically hastens entry under risk neutrality. Here, we examine these two opposing effects in a duopoly setting. We demonstrate that the value of a firm and its entry decision behave differently with risk aversion and uncertainty depending on the type of competition. Interestingly, if the leader's role is defined endogenously, then higher uncertainty makes her relatively better off, whereas with the roles exogenously defined, the impact of uncertainty is ambiguous.

    Optimal investment under operational flexibility, risk aversion, and uncertainty2011Ingår i: European Journal of Operational Research, ISSN 0377-2217, Vol. 213, nr 1, 221-237 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Traditional real options analysis addresses the problem of investment under uncertainty assuming a risk-neutral decision maker and complete markets. In reality, however, decision makers are often risk averse and markets are incomplete. We confirm that risk aversion lowers the probability of investment and demonstrate how this effect can be mitigated by incorporating operational flexibility in the form of embedded suspension and resumption options. Although such options facilitate investment, we find that the likelihood of investing is still lower compared to the risk-neutral case. Risk aversion also increases the likelihood that the project will be abandoned, although this effect is less pronounced. Finally, we illustrate the impact of risk aversion on the optimal suspension and resumption thresholds and the interaction among risk aversion, volatility, and optimal decision thresholds under complete operational flexibility.

    When is it better to wait for a new version? Optimal replacement of an emerging technology under uncertainty2015Ingår i: Annals of Operations Research, ISSN 0254-5330, E-ISSN 1572-9338, Vol. 235, nr 1, 177-201 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Firms that use an emerging technology often face uncertainty in both the arrival of new versions and the revenue that may be earned from their deployment. Via a sequential decision-making framework, we determine the value of the investment opportunity and the optimal replacement rule under three different strategies: compulsive, laggard, and leapfrog. In the first one, a firm invests sequentially in every version that becomes available, whereas in the second and third ones, it first waits for a new version to arrive and then either invests in the older or the newer version, respectively. We show that, under a compulsive strategy, technological uncertainty has a non-monotonic impact on the optimal investment decision. In fact, uncertainty regarding the availability of future versions may actually hasten investment. By comparing the relative values of the three strategies, we find that, under a low output price the compulsive strategy always dominates, whereas, at a high output price, the incentive to wait for a new version and adopt either a leapfrog or a laggard strategy increases as the rate of innovation increases. By contrast, high price uncertainty mitigates this effect, thereby increasing the relative attraction of a compulsive strategy.

    Using hyperlinked video to increase motivation and learning: The HyperCaster approach2010Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a challenge to create video technology and didactics that encourage knowledge building, takes advantage of the possibilities of new media and on the same time is easy to use by teachers. HyperCaster is an open source hypervideo player developed for education and science communication that takes up this challenge. This paper summarize the thoughts and the decisions behind the design and gives suggestions on how teachers can use hypervideo to create learning material. Using video is a great way of escaping the classroom getting into action; to meet real people involved in the subject such as experts, people with personal experience and role models. Furthermore video is great for visualizing complex processes. Internet users can however be very impatient and it's hard to make them watch long video episodes. Teachers can use interactive objects and hyperlinks in video to prepare their material for this restless behavior. Links in video opens the possibility to integrate with all the already existing resources out on the net. It's easy for teachers to place links and graphics directly in the content management system with the built-in editor instead of using advanced editing software. Thus it's easy to update the links and the graphics when the Internet resources change. The HyperCaster player aims to solve important usability issues associated with interactive video due to the temporal linking and the browsing between web pages. The technical development and the didactics has since 2001 evolved hand-in-hand throughout a series of development and information projects in cooperation with Stockholm university, Forskning.se, Sida and Harvard university. A demonstration of the HyperCaster system and the hypervideo content will be held during the presentation.

    Live streaming of robotic surgery from leading educational centres enables a global approach to surgical teaching2016Ingår i: Journal of Urology, ISSN 0022-5347, E-ISSN 1527-3792, Vol. 195, nr 4, e116- s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Following recently published EAU Policy on Live Surgical Events (LSE's) it is assured that live surgery will be ongoing at conferences in the immediate future. However, the panel reached >80% consensus view that performing at a home institution may be safer. The committee also identified issues with a ‘travelling surgeon’ performing complex surgery in an unfamiliar environment with a surgical team that is not experienced with the intricacies of surgeons techniques. LSE's from home institutions remove or minimize these negative aspects.

    The effect of missing data on wind resource estimation2011Ingår i: Energy, ISSN 0360-5442, Vol. 36, nr 7, 4505-4517 s.Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Investment in renewable energy sources requires reliable data. However, meteorological datasets are often plagued by missing data, which can bias energy resource estimates if the missingness is systematic. We address this issue by considering the influence of missing data due to icing of equipment during the winter on the wind resource estimation for a potential wind turbine site in Norway. Using a mean-reverting jump-diffusion (MRJD) process to model electricity prices, we also account for the impact on the expected revenue from a wind turbine constructed at the site. While missing data due to icing significantly bias the wind resource estimate downwards, their impact on revenue estimates is dampened because of volatile electricity spot prices. By contrast, with low-volatility electricity prices, the effect of missing data on revenue estimates is highly significant. The seasonality-based method we develop removes most of the bias in wind resource and revenue estimation caused by missing data.

    This late breaking report describes two explorations of effects of using social media in human-robot interaction. The first is an exploration of how ‘autonomous creatures’ can use information shared via social awareness streams by implementing a Nabaztag to use information from its ‘friends’ on location-sharing service foursquare. The second is an informal analysis of tweets sent to an existing robot-associated twitter account as a case. We show parallels to prior research and discuss questions that these simple explorations pose for the future of robots and social media.

At the same time application distribution has become increasingly simple due to the proliferation of app stores and the like. Evaluation and research methods have to be adapted to this new context to get the best data and feedback from wide audiences. However, an overview of successful strategies to overcome research challenges inherent to wide deployment is not yet available. App store platform characteristics, devices, reaching target users, new types of evaluation data and dynamic, heterogeneous usage contexts have to be dealt with. This workshop provides a forum for researchers and developers to exchange experiences and strategies for wide distribution of applications. We aim at building an understanding of the opportunities of various distribution channels and obstacles involved in a research context

    Abstract [en]

    Distribution of mobile applications has been greatly simplified by mobile app stores and markets. Both lone developers and large research and development teams can now relatively easily reach wide audiences. In addition, people’s mobile phones can now run advanced applications and are equipped with sensors that used to be available only in custom research hardware. This provides researchers with a huge opportunity to gather research data from a large public. Evaluation and research methods have to be adapted to this new context. However, an overview of successful strategies and ways to overcome the methodological challenges inherent to wide deployment in a research context is not yet available. A workshop was organized on this topic and this special issue to help address these topics. This introduction provides an overview of strategies and opportunities in ‘research in the large’, while providing an introduction to challenges in ethics and validity as well.

    Performing a Check-in: Emerging Practices, Norms and ‘Conflicts’ in Location-Sharing Using Foursquare.2011Ingår i: Proceedings of the 13th Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services, Stockholm, Sweden: ACM , 2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Location-sharing services have a long history in research, but have only recently become available for consumers. Most popular commercial location-sharing services differ from previous research efforts in important ways: they use manual ‘check-ins’ to pair user location with semantically named venues rather than tracking; venues are visible to all users; location is shared with a potentially very large audience; and they employ incentives. By analysis of 20 in- depth interviews with foursquare users and 47 survey responses, we gained insight into emerging social practices surrounding location-sharing. We see a shift from privacy issues and data deluge, to more performative considerations in sharing one’s location. We discuss performance aspects enabled by check-ins to public venues, and show emergent, but sometimes conflicting norms (not) to check-in.

    Using existing services as development and research materials can greatly reduce development burdens. However, using mashups and existing services has consequences that go beyond the technical realm. We present our ongoing experience with developing and promoting a mobile mash-up implemented in the mobile web browser: Spotisquare. Spotisquare is a mash-up of the location-based service foursquare and music streaming service Spotify. We discuss advantages and tradeoffs of using existing services and the mobile mash-up process, including interaction model choices, as well as validity and representational issues.

    Abstract [en]

    The e-Government initiative in Mozambique is an ambitious and far-reaching movement with immense potential for positive impact on the Mozambican government and economy. Central to this initiative is the Government Portal—a portal dedicated to intuitively and helpfully disseminating government news, services, and information to citizens, the public sector, and the private sector. Such an important project of the e-Government initiative requires frequent evaluation of the project performance and ways in which it can improve. This document attempts to measure the performance of the Government Portal through visitor analysis. It discusses the limitations of analysis through this approach, what can be deduced from the visitor analysis, and possible ideas to improve the project in an attempt to help it reach its objectives.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses some of the findings of a study that bridges an existing knowledge gap by focusing on identifying influences on the wider adoption and uptake of TEL techniques by HEIs in Nairobi. In this context, TEL techniques can encompass e-learning, blended learning, using massive open online courses (MOOCs), or an entirely online course delivery. This study examines why HEIs are using TEL, perceived benefits and challenges of using TEL from an institutional and instructor perspective, and the impact of policies. The findings have important research, practical, societal, and policy making implications for educational delivery on a continent with a rapidly growing population. Findings will assist decision making, inform policy creation, and provide useful foundational reference material for further comparative research in Africa. The lessons learned will also assist tertiary level institutions across the African continent that wish to plan for wider TEL adoption, or to implement TEL in a more effective manner, by considering common challenges that could limit adoption.

    Baseline Analysis of 3 Innovation Ecosystems in East Africa2014Ingår i: 2014 International Conference on Advances in ICT for Emerging Regions (ICTer), 2014, 156-162 s.Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The potential impact of computing innovations supporting social and economic development (particularly in developing countries) is very dependent on the level of maturity of National Innovation Ecosystems (including policy environment, infrastructure and socio-economic diversification). East Africa has experienced significant growth in ICT-enabled Innovation (particularly mobile) in recent years. Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda have experienced considerable entrepreneurial growth, facilitated by Innovation friendly regulatory environments, evolution of National Research Education Networks (NReNs) and rollout of fibre optic backbones. While it is clear that ICT, Job Creation and developing a Knowledge Economy are common policy priorities, the Innovation Ecosystems in Nairobi, Dar es Salaam and Kampala are quite fragmented. While support for entrepreneurship is improving, Innovation Spaces have sustainability challenges with their business models and there is a limited availability of funding, and training and mentoring for entrepreneurs. Greater collaboration between different stakeholders and more efficient support systems are required to promote accelerated development. In this paper, we provide a survey of the key Innovation Stakeholders in Nairobi, Dar es Salaam and Kampala. This is based on semi-structured face to face interviews (November 2012 – February 2013), supplemented by IST-Africa Surveys, focus group engagement during Research and Innovation Stakeholder workshops, and supported by desk research, follow-up e-mails and telephone interviews to reflect developments up to July 2014.

    Factors Impacting on the Current Level of Open Innovation and ICT Entrepreneurship in Africa2016Ingår i: Electronic Journal of Information Systems in Developing Countries, ISSN 1681-4835, E-ISSN 1681-4835, Vol. 73Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Across Africa, Innovation and ICT entrepreneurship are increasingly recognised as important enablers of national and regional socio-economic growth. However, the level of skills capacity, indigenous entrepreneurial expertise and policy support varies considerably. This research study was informed by a semi-structured, moderated focus group involving five public and four education and research stakeholders from eight African Member States. It focused on identifying factors impacting on the current level of open innovation and ICT entrepreneurship in Africa. Organised in Lilongwe, Malawi on 08 May 2015 during IST-Africa Week 2015, a purposive approach was applied to identify the nine informants based on intensity sampling. The results highlighted six main factors: a) level of political will reflected by resource prioritisation; b) alignment with national development plans and associated funding priorities; c) level of understanding of strategic benefits by ministers and senior civil servants; d) level of awareness and sensitization of the general public, e) availability of national innovation and entrepreneurial expertise; and f) willingness and capacity to cooperate with other stakeholders to achieve common goals. Future research will capture perspectives from the private, societal and international donor sectors, and create and validate potential models/methodologies to address the challenges and opportunities identified in this study.

    Organisering och digitalisering: att skapa värde i det 21:a århundradet2017Bok (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Digitaliseringen gör att förändringar sker allt snabbare. Förändringarna innebär stora möjligheter men lika stora risker. För att kunna utnyttja möjligheterna måste vi anpassa oss. Och vi måste göra det medvetet. Förändringarna ger organisationer bättre förutsättningar än någonsin för att lyckas, men för att lyckas behöver man förstå och utnyttja dem. Vissa klarar det, andra inte. Att digitalisera framgångsrikt är inte enkelt. Den här boken visar hur organisationer skapar värde i en digitaliserad verklighet. Boken går igenom digitalisering med utgångspunkt i vad en organisation egentligen är och vad den behöver. Den spänner över mål, affärsmodeller, strategier, organisering, beslut och projekt. Tyngdpunkten ligger på hur man strukturerar för att få effektivare beslutshantering och mer framgångsrika projektgenomföranden. Eftersom beslut och project är grundpelare för att kunna använda digitaliseringen. Boken lämpar sig särskilt väl för kurser i företagsekonomi, industriell ekonomi och data- och systemvetenskap. Men den vänder sig till alla som vill förstå hur organisationer ska hantera och dra nytta av digitaliseringen.
