    Innovation inom outsourcing av IT: En kvalitativ studie utifrån leverantörens möjligheter att bidra2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    IT-branschen är en av de marknader som konstant växer och krav på nya uppfinningar och innovationer är höga. Outsourcing har under en längre tid används av IT-företag för att kunna reducera kostnader för produktion och utveckling. Outsourcing är även ett bra alternativ för att erhålla expertis inom ett visst område där företag saknar erfarenhet eller resurser. Innovation är en del av företags utveckling och när hela eller delar av företagens IT-avdelningar blir outsourcade är det naturligt att även tillhörande delar av innovationsprocessen har förflyttats. Leverantören är den part som i praktiken utvecklar innovationen i outsourcingavtalet. Leverantörerna får en strikt budget och tidsram från kunden att följa för varje projekt. Innovation är kreativt, föränderligt och levande. Dessutom är innovation dyrt. Helt motsägelsefullt mot outsourcing. Leverantörer har en svår uppgift i att arbeta utifrån kundens krav och samtidigt försöka realisera innovationer. Syftet med studien är att undersöka på vilket sätt leverantörer bidrar med innovation inom outsourcing av IT.Studien har utförts med en kvalitativ fallstudiemetod. Intervjuer har genomförts med fyra olika respondenter på ett stort IT-företag som nästan helt uteslutande arbetar med outsourcing. Den största nackdelen med outsourcing är de stora kraven på kostnadsbesparing, den har en negativ inverkan på innovationen. Alla respondenter har uttryckt att de som leverantör har möjlighet att bidra med innovation men att kostnadsbesparingarna kan göra utrymmet för innovation begränsat i vissa fall. Övergången till det agila arbetssättet har hjälpt till att främja innovationsförmågan hos leverantören.

    Impact of a Decision Support System on Obstetricians in the Pregnancy Nutrition Guidance2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Pregnancy Nutrition (PN) guidance is an issue of great concern worldwide because of its direct relevance to the maternal healthcare and the healthy prenatal development (Li et al., 2004, p. 11). Providing an effective guidance on PN is an onerous and time-consuming task. Extensive experience, knowledge, and continuous and actual calculations are required for the obstetricians. Consequently, the PN guidance is often faced with difficulties and hurdles. It is, however, dramatically changed with the emergence of a Decision Support System (DSS) for PN guidance based on the computer information management technique. This DSS has been applied for the clinic guidance of PN in obstetrics departments or hospitals in China. Its impacts on obstetricians are investigated in this thesis.

    Objectives: This thesis investigates the consequences and intrinsic correlations of relevant factors during the application of the DSS, so that its effects on obstetricians can be clearly identified and the usefulness of this system for pregnancy nutrition guidance can be effectively established. It also lays a foundation for an effective communication between system developers and the end users of this system. At the meantime, this work proposes the concepts and methods that allow proper utility of such an information management system.

    Methods: A number of research methods have been applied for data acquisitions and analyses, including direct observations of the obstetrics department in the hospital in study, conversational interviews with the participating obstetricians, and distance communications. These approaches enable us to prepare the resources to construct the model based on these case studies. As a parallel approach, quantitative methods based on questionnaires have been conducted which reach out a large number of obstetricians in different locations. This allows a statistical analysis that permits the impact analysis and correlation of the intrinsic factors, so that the conclusions of this study can be consolidated.

    Results: Positive impacts will be measured by five factors including convenience, acceptability, generality, concreteness, and effectiveness, while negative impacts by three factors including verbosity, rigidity, and expensiveness.

    Conclusions: The DSS has successfully enhanced the application of correct PN guidance. Both positive and negative impacts have been generated on obstetricians by the DSS. These impacts are mainly related to the seniority of obstetricians and their familiarity with the PN guidance and the DSS. The development, utilization, and operation management of the DSS in PN guidance has generated impacts and functions. This study might provide resources and foundation of the systematic management of the DSS together with its development. The DSS and the related Chief Information Officers and Specialists will benefit from this study and therefore provide improved support and assistance for the end users to complete information system management successfully.

    A block-diagonal growth curve model2006Inngår i: Digital signal processing (Print), ISSN 1051-2004, E-ISSN 1095-4333, Vol. 16, nr 6, 902-912 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider a variation of the growth curve (GC) model, referred to as the block-diagonal growth curve (BDGC) model, where the unknown regression coefficient matrix is constrained to be block-diagonal. A closed-form approximate maximum likelihood (AML) estimator for this model is derived based on the maximum likelihood principle. We analyze the statistical properties of this method theoretically and show that the AML estimate is unbiased and asymptotically statistically efficient for a large snapshot number. Via numerical examples in wireless communications, we also show that the proposed AML estimator can achieve excellent estimation accuracy.

    Human Computer Interaction Study: Designing a Mobile Web-based Vaccination Service System Interface for Uganda in Low Resource Settings2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Oppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, the coverage rating of child vaccination services in developing countries, like Uganda, is lower than developed countries. The low resource setting is the reason that causes the poor vaccination performance. Health workers suffer from the heavy workload, low budget supplement and bad traffic condition, etc. Which constrains the quality of vaccination services. In this thesis, the author designs a mobile web-based vaccination service system, to improve the quality of vaccination service, within the low resource setting. A study in HCI is carried out to design a vaccination service system in the low resource settings of Uganda. Through theoretical study, the author collects the knowledge about how to apply HCI theory to system interface design. A related work study is carried out to help the author to choose the design solution. Through comparing the design with related works, the strength of using the author’s design solution in low resource of Uganda is verified. A field study helps to collect information about the user’s characteristics, which is used for designing a user-friendly system interface. An internal focus group helps to improve the design quality. The author delivers a case study example which could be evaluated and borrowed by other researchers who design a similar system. Additionally, findings from the qualitative research could be used for further research.

    Fossil-free Public Transport: Prescriptive Policy Analysis for the Swedish Bus Fleets2016Inngår i: 2016 13th International Conference on the European Energy Market (EEM), IEEE Computer Society, 2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Elicitation and processing of the relevant information is the core of any policy decision-making process. This study presents a prescriptive policy analysis for the “fossil-free fuel deployment for public transport buses at the national level in Sweden”, using a policy-oriented modelling and simulation tool, Sense4us , that supports systems analysis for policy involving:: (i) Structuring of policy problems using the labelled causal mapping method [11], (ii) Ex ante Impact assessment using scenario-based dynamic simulation modelling and (iii) Ex-ante evaluation of the considered policy options based on the simulation results and using a set of standard criteria for evaluation of EU policy interventions. The results are most of all useful for designing a policy pathway for public bus transport that is both environmentally sustainable and economically feasible. Moreover, the process allows involvement of the key stakeholders to reflect various priorities and preferences.

    A graph-based comprehensive reputation model: exploiting the social context of opinions to enhance trust in social commerce2015Inngår i: Information Sciences, ISSN 0020-0255, E-ISSN 1872-6291, Vol. 318, 51-72 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Social commerce is a promising new paradigm of e-commerce. Given the open and dynamic nature of social media infrastructure, the governance structures of social commerce are usually realized through reputation mechanisms. However, the existing approaches to the prediction of trust in future interactions are based on personal observations and/or publicly shared information in social commerce application. As a result, the indications are unreliable and biased because of limited first-hand information and stake-holder manipulation for personal strategic interests. Methods that extract trust values from social links among users can improve the performance of reputation mechanisms. Nonetheless, these links may not always be available and are typically sparse in social commerce, especially for new users. Thus, this study proposes a new graph-based comprehensive reputation model to build trust by fully exploiting the social context of opinions based on the activities and relationship networks of opinion contributors. The proposed model incorporates the behavioral activities and social relationship reputations of users to combat the scarcity of first-hand information and identifies a set of critical trust factors to mitigate the subjectivity of opinions and the dynamics of behaviors. Furthermore, we enhance the model by developing a novel deception filtering approach to discard "bad-mouthing" opinions and by exploiting a personalized direct distrust (risk) metric to identify malicious providers. Experimental results show that the proposed reputation model can outperform other trust and reputation models in most cases. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Transmedia marketing: strengthening multiplatform user participation through storytelling2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The term transmedia storytelling describes an interactive narrative that exists in multiple platforms. This phenomenon allows active audience participation as a part of the narrative creation process. Part of the prior research on transmedia focuses on how to create a transmedia narrative. However there is a dearth of literature examining the merit that transmedia narratives create in Marketing. In order to answer the research question “How can transmedia storytelling be used to create value in marketing?” we conducted a multiple case study research in which we examined four marketing campaigns to reveal the transmedia elements in them. Using the approach of qualitative content analysis we applied a structured method according which we collected and ­­analysed the data from these campaigns. Our findings suggest that creating audience participation through transmedia storytelling in marketing campaigns for movies, products and services can be beneficial. By using different media, platforms and stimulating user participation, concepts such as brand extension and brand awareness are introduced to the audience with an alternative way. The aim of this thesis is to illustrate several ways of how transmedia can be a valuable asset to a marketing campaign through storytelling.

    The Network Lens2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    A complex network graphics may be composed of hundreds and thousands of objects, such as nodes and edges. Each object may hold a large number of attributes that might be difficult to explore in the network visualization. Therefore, many visualization tools and approaches have been developed to gain more information from the network graphics. In this paper, we introduce the concept of the Network Lens, a new widget that assists the users to deal with a complex network. The Network Lens is an interactive tool that combines data visualization to a magic lens. With the help of the Network Lens, users can display hidden information of the elements in the network graphics based on their interest. Moreover, the Network Lens supports a series of interactive functions that give the users flexible options to define their own lenses.

    Grading Countries/Territories Using DEA Frontiers2015Inngår i: PROCEEDINGS OF ISSI 2015 ISTANBUL: 15TH INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF SCIENTOMETRICS AND INFORMETRICS CONFERENCE, Leuven University Press, 2015, 436-447 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Several approaches exist related to categorizing academic journals/institutions/countries into different levels. Most existing grading methods use either a weighted sum of quantitative indicators (including the case of one properly defined quantitative indicator) or quantified peer review results. An important issue of concern for science and technology management is the efficiency of resource utilization. In this paper we deal with this issue and use multi-level frontiers of data envelopment analysis (DEA) models to grade countries/territories. Research funding and numbers of researchers as used as inputs, while papers and citations are output variables. The research results show that using DEA frontiers we can grade countries/territories on six levels. These levels reflect the corresponding countries' level of efficiency in S&T resource utilization. Furthermore, we use papers and citations as single outputs (with research funding and researchers as inputs) to show changes in country/territory level.

    Understanding the Values of Live Game Streaming: a Value-Focused Thinking Approach2017Inngår i: WHICEB 2017: Proceedings, Association for Information Systems, 2017, 394-401 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, along with the development of information communication technology, live streaming is getting more and more popular in China. It has established an integrated industrial chain. There are a large number of users watching different live streams (e.g., games. sports, live shows) through personal computers and mobile devices. In this paper, we aim to investigate the values of live game streaming using the Value-Focused Thinking (VFT) approach. We analyze the values of live game streaming from the perspectives of both streamers and spectators. The identified values are represented in the form of a means-ends objective network. The means-ends objective network derived from this research can serve as a conceptual foundation for future studies and provide useful guidelines for practitioners to better operate live game streaming applications.

    Transformation of administration into e-government: From municipality to e-municipality in İstanbul Metropolitan Municipality in Turkey2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Today, citizens are government-related jobs, more quickly and are being carried out in a systematic way of e-government, began to implement a rebuke to all the countries of the world. According to the level of development of countries, this transition moving forward fast or slow.

    To create the infrastructure of e-government, huge investments need to be made financially. For this reason, e-government applications in each country with the same speed and the same advanced infrastructure take place.

    E-government, E-municipality in itself e-finance and so on divided into subtypes. In this species, e-municipalities have an important place. Municipalities with the basic element of urban life, is extremely important to provide services in the form of e-government. Transparency is fundamental to increasing confidence in the local government and citizen-municipal applications, and the city moving forward on more regular jobs.

    Turkey is a country that has the category of developing countries. The transition to e-government applications is still in the country, are carried out for E-municipal applications. Country, city divided into units called local government services is realized. Municipalities and cities with population over a certain number of other provinces administered in the form of the Municipality. Municipalities depend on the central government.

    Istanbul is the most populous province in Turkey.  For this reason, many municipalities in the country to the other applications that are running in this city are a pioneer. E-municipality application is one of the applications of this type. Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, e-municipal applications continues to transition. It has continued to work on infrastructure and related units. A portion of the system works. E- Municipalities applications Istanbul's city hall, the municipal authorities, as well as their approach citizens wary of e-municipality system. However, many began to carry out transactions in the virtual environment.

    Utveckling av sökmotor med ranksystem2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a collaboration with the company Sverige-Norge. Their business concept is to connect Swedish manpower to Norwegian employers. The emphasis of this work is to enhance the existing system they use to find Swedish employees to Norwegian employers. The old system was based on manually selecting candidates for possible job-openings. This was done by handpicking the candidates from the database. However this was not efficient but time-consuming and thereby expensive.

    The solution to prevent inefficiency was to create a search-engine. A search-engine would allow employers to find their suitable candidates, without the intervenience of the administration. In order to give an accurate search result, a grading system was requested for each candidate. A grading system would give the employer the benefit to see how well each candidate is suitable for the job-offering. The result was a fully functional search engine with a grading system based on experiences of the candidates.

    Abstract [en]

    Systems development, in a strict sense, is a formalisation of the end-user' desires in the form of executable computer programs. In the last two decades a number of formal methods have been suggested to systemise this formalising process and make it more efficient, eventually to achieve an optimal automation of the process. This chapter addresses the following issues: Which are these formal methods, and what are their advantages and disadvantages, compared with traditional, informal methods? Do formal methods work only in theory, but not in practice? A study is presented as an illustration, showing how UML for object-oriented systems development can be formalised using a formal technique called FUML

    Systemutveckling är i strikt mening en formalisering av användarnas önskemål i form av exekverbara datorprogram. För att effektivisera, systematisera och till slut automatisera denna formaliseringsprocess maximalt har en mängd formella metoder föreslagits under de två senaste decennierna. I kapitlet diskuteras följande frågor: Vilka är dessa formella metoder och vilka för- och nackdelar har de jämfört med traditionella, informella metoder? Fungerar formella metoder bara i teorin men inte i praktiken? Som illustration presenteras en studie om hur UML för objekt-orienterad systemutveckling kan formaliseras med hjälp av en formell teknik kallad FUML

    Abstract [en]

    Enterprise Modeling (EM) methods and tools have been developed and successfully used for more than two decades yet their adoption in organizations is mostly ad hoc. Only a few EM methods and tools have become successful products despite being theoretically sound and having certain success in application in practice. This grounded theory inquiry ponders on what factors influence the successful productization of EM methods and tools. Among the factors discussed are EM maturity gap, method and tool development process, application context, marketing and sales aspects, as well as product aspects.

    Agila Business Intelligence System: Kritiska framgångsfaktorer2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Agila Business Intelligence System (ABIS) är en relativt ny och komplex typ av informationssystem, som kännetecknas av förkortade utvecklingstider, genom att exempelvis införa mer självbetjäning i de analytiska systemen, för att kunna möta ett behov av att analysera omvärldsfaktorer, som förändras i en allt snabbare takt. Eftersom ABIS är ett nytt och relativt outforskat område, finns ett behov av att utforska detta område. IT-investeringar är alltför ofta olönsamma och finns ett intresse av att visa på vad som bidrar till ett framgångsrikt införande av ett ABIS och på vilket sätt.

    Syftet med denna fallstudie var att identifiera högt rankade och gemensamma faktorer baserat på de kritiska framgångsfaktorer som belagts av tidigare forskning inom ABIS, beskriva hur dessa bidragit till ett framgångsrikt införande samt utröna skillnader och/eller likheter mellan hur dessa faktorer verkar ur kund- respektive leverantörsperspektiv.

    Som underlag för denna studie användes framför allt tidigare forskning kring kritiska framgångsfaktorer för Business Intelligence System. Speciellt en modell som utvecklades 2010 av Yeoh och Koronios användes som utgångspunkt för att lista de potentiella faktorer, som skulle beaktas av denna studie.

    Denna undersökning genomfördes som en fallstudie med hjälp av ett företag, som både levererar konsulttjänster och ABIS. En Delphipanel användes för att sortera fram framgångsfaktorer, som sedan studerades närmare genom semistrukturerade intervjuer för hur dessa kritiska framgångsfaktorer bidragit till ett framgångsrikt införande av ABIS från dels ett kundperspektiv, dels ett leverantörsperspektiv.

    De två faktorer som rankades högt och samtidigt delades av samtliga respondenter var:

    • affärsvision och planer
    • datakvalitet och dataintegritet

    Kundperspektivet var det styrande och leverantörens roll var ordentligt förstå kundens perspektiv, för att på så sätt framgångsrikt införa ABIS. Affärsvision och planer var av betydelse för att koppla införande till kundens målsättningar. Datakvalitet och dataintegritet var den mest betydelsefull faktorn utifrån den resursfördelningen skedde inom ett införandeprojekt för ABIS.

    A comparative analysis of Cisco Performance Routing (PfR) and other performance enhancing techniques - Cisco QoS and Path Control2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Eleven years ago Cisco introduced three types of applications on the same converged network and named it AVVID (Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data). In spite of the initial interest and hype surrounding AVVID, the feature was and still is unable to confront problems such as: data priority, load balancing and network congestion. The work in this report addressed these issues within the network. Different Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) methods: routing protocols, Cisco IOS QoS (including LLQ, LFI and Header Compression), Path Control and Cisco Performance Routing (PfR) were all tested to see which feature would work best at enhancing network performance.

    A practical network was created in which these features were carefully implemented one after another. In every step, the results were observed and recorded and if necessary repeated in order to check their validity. The results for RTT (Round Trip Time) and MOS (Mean Opinion Score) showed that in comparison to Path Control and Cisco IOS QoS (Quality of Service) mechanisms, Cisco PfR was able to generate routes on the fly during times of network congestion. This cannot be achieved with the use of Cisco QoS and Path Control which makes Cisco Performance Routing a far more superior feature. Although the focus of the work was VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) data, it is possible to construct a network with any application as Cisco PfR is able to reroute data. Cisco PfR is an easily accessible IOS feature which, once implemented, requires very little updating and maintenance.

    New Forms of Collaboration in Emergency Response Systems: A framework for participatory design of information systems2016Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    An emergency response systems (ERS) is usually responsible for delivering essential services to save lives and minimise environmental damage in case of small, frequent or large-scale emergencies. The ongoing global financial crisis, lack of professional resources, public sector cuts and rising public expectations are some of the challenges ERSs currently are facing. At the same time, societal trends in form of large-scale disasters such as tsunamis, storms, forest fires, terror attacks, and wars in the Middle East leading to mass migration have intensified recently and globally, increasing demand for these services in the public sector. As a result, emergency response actors are often under extreme pressure, and may need to seek assistance from and cooperate with other resources in society in order to become more effective. An emerging trend in ERSs in response to the challenges, in Sweden and internationally, is to create new forms of collaboration in emergency management (e.g., cross-sector collaboration, involving citizens in e-government, and involving volunteers). While research and practice have started to show the benefits of organising ERSs in new ways, the increasingly broad set of heterogeneous stakeholders involved in the collaborations introduce various challenges. Legal issues, unclear responsibilities of actors, difficulty in the categorisation of tasks, job insurance problems, diversity in education and background of actors, and difficulty determining actors’ specific needs for IS support are some examples. Analysis of collaborations thus becomes increasingly complex, and must incorporate many aspects. Rudimentary analyses may result in failure of related projects and IS development, and ultimately in less effective collaborations. New forms of collaboration must therefore be analysed and understood rigorously, generally and in each specific context in order to develop them for ERSs and the public sector and to support actors with effective IS tools.

    This thesis develops and presents a framework for analysing new forms of collaboration in ERSs. It also provides an initial suggestion on how to apply the framework with a specific focus on IS development. The study was carried out as a qualitative case study based on three kinds of collaboration in the Swedish ERS: co-operative, cross-sector use of resources, involving civil volunteers in response operations and co-location of actors. The framework has fifteen dimensions. They are: Type/Role, Attitude, Training, Background, Task and Responsibility, Availability/Accessibility, Incident Type, Communication Methods, Information Technology, Emergency Supplies, Organisational Structure, Leadership, Costs/Benefits, Environment, and Regulations and Legal Issues. Sociotechnical systems theory and participatory design principles were applied to make the framework usable in the IS field. The framework can be used generally to analyse new forms of collaboration in ERSs in order to understand its different aspects and emergent challenges, such as actors’ tasks, relevant laws, leadership and organisational factors, which may otherwise be overlooked, into the analysis process. As to IS development, the framework can contribute to organisational analysis and needs analysis in the participatory design of IS for ERSs, e.g. by helping to identify key stakeholders and involve them in the development process.

    The framework was initially tested at the co-location case and showed several promising benefits in terms of identifying and involving stakeholders in the development process. It was deemed helpful in determining and formulating interviews, observations, and future workshops in order to explore and study all relevant dimensions of the collaboration in the early phases of participatory design. It was also felt that the framework saved time and resources. It is argued that it may offer similar benefits in similar cases, although this will require further testing with more case studies. A standardised and developed version of the framework may also be adapted to be applicable to other public sector contexts such as e-government in which new forms of collaboration and governance are in focus. Such a framework may also help to address general challenges often associated with participatory design, add formalisation to it, and contribute to shift it from an academic to a practical approach in order to derive its benefits in complex environments. The next step will be to use the framework as a departure point for analysing the potential co-operative use of resources and cross-sector collaboration in the project ‘Efficient Communal Use of Municipal Resources for Increased Safety and Security’ (ESKORT) in the municipality of Norrköping.

    Actor-centred emergency response systems: a framework for needs analysis and information systems development2016Inngår i: International Journal of Emergency Management, ISSN 1471-4825, E-ISSN 1741-5071, Vol. 12, nr 4, 403-434 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

     A new trend in emergency response systems (ERS) is to create new forms of collaboration, for example, by involving new resources in response operations, in order to compensate for the limited number of professional resources. However, the fact that the new resources may come from different organisational contexts and social sectors creates new challenges which directly affect information systems development for these resources. This study presents a framework including 15 dimensions to analyse the new forms of collaboration. Socio-technical system theory and participatory design approaches are applied to make the framework applicable in the information systems field. The framework might also address general problems such as the lack of formalisation and difficulties in identifying relevant stakeholders in participatory design. A comparison with international research showed a potential to adapt the framework to ERSs in other countries or even to other parts of the public sector that are undergoing similar changes.

    A Recommender System Model Combining Trust with Topic Maps2013Inngår i: World Wide Web: Internet and Web Information Systems: APWeb 2013, 2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Recommender Systems (RS) aim to suggest users with items that they might like based on users' opinion on items. In practice, information about the users' opinion on items is usually sparse compared to the vast information about users and items. Therefore it is hard to analyze and justify users' favorites, particularly those of cold start users. In this paper, we propose a trust model based on the user trust network, which is composed of the trust relationships among users. We also introduce the widely used conceptual model Topic Map, with which we try to classify items into topics for Recommender analysis. We novelly combine trust relations among users with Topic Maps to resolve the sparsity problem and cold start problem. The evaluation shows our model and method can achieve a good recommendation effect.

    Abstract [en]

    Accurate prediction of malaria incidence is essentialfor the management of several activities in the ministry of health in Mozambique. This study investigates the comparison ofsupport vector machines (SVMs) and random forests (RFs) forthis purpose. A dataset with records of malaria cases covering theperiod 1999-2008 was used to evaluate predictive models on thelast year when developed from one up to nine years of historicaldata. Mean squared error (MSE) was used as performancemetric. The scheme for estimating variable importance commonlyemployed for RFs was also adopted for SVMs. SVMs developedfrom two year of historical data obtained the best predictionaccuracy. Hence, if we are interested in predicting the actualnumber of malaria cases the support vector machines modelshould be chosen. In the analysis of variable importance, IndoorResidual Spray (IRS), the districts of Manhiça and Matola andmonth of January turned out to be the most important predictorsin both the SVM and RF models.

    Generalization of Malaria Incidence Prediction Models by Correcting Sample Selection Bias2013Inngår i: Advanced Data Mining and Applications: Proceedings, Part II / [ed] Hiroshi Motoda et al., Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2013, 189-200 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Performance measurements obtained from dividing a single sample into training and test sets, e.g. by employing cross-validation, may not give an accurate picture of the performance of any model developed from the sample, on the set of examples to which the model will be applied. Such measurements, which are due to that training and test samples are drawn according to different distributions may hence be misleading. In this study, two support vector machine models for predicting malaria incidence developed from certain regions and time periods in Mozambique are evaluated on data from novel regions and time periods, and the use of selection bias correction is investigated. It is observed that significant reductions in the predicted error can be obtained using the latter approach, strongly suggesting that techniques of this kind should be employed if test data can be expected to be drawn from some other distribution than what is the origin of the training data.

    Abstract [en]

    Malaria remains a significant public health concern in Mozambique with disease cases reported in almost every province. This study investigates the prediction models of the number of malaria cases in districts of Maputo province. Used data include administrative districts, malaria cases, indoor residual spray and climatic variables temperature, rainfall and humidity. Regression trees and random forest models were developed using the statistical tool R, and applied to predict the number of malaria cases during one year, based on observations from preceding years. Models were compared with respect to the mean squared error (MSE) and correlation coefficient. Indoor Residual Spray (IRS), month of January, minimal temperature and rainfall variables were found to be the most important factors when predicting the number of malaria cases, with some districts showing high malaria incidence. Additionally, by reducing the time window for what historical data to take into account, predictive performance can be increased substantially.

    Strengthening the Health Information System in Mozambique through Malaria Incidence Prediction2013Inngår i: IST-Africa 2013 Conference Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham, Miriam Cunningham, IEEE Computer Society, 2013, 1-7 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Malaria is one of the principal health problems in Mozambique, affecting mostly children. The prediction of accurate future incidence cases is crucial for the implementation of appropriate policies of intervention and disease control in order to strengthen the health system. We propose a model based on support vector machines (SVM) for predicting yearly malaria incidence cases for children 0-4 years of age in the Maputo province, Mozambique. The predictive model is trained on two years of historical malaria data in combination with climatic and malaria control factors. A grid optimization parameter tuning procedure was firstly employed to detect the best parameters and select the kernel. In order to determine the most influential factors, variable importance was calculated through estimating the impact of permuting feature values on the predictive performance. The most important malaria incidence predictors turned out to be temperature variation, followed by Matutuine (district), April (month) and Namaacha (district).

    Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration Through Social Media: The Case of IBM2012Inngår i: Proceedings of the 7th Mediterranean Conference on Information Systems, MCIS 2012, Guimarães, Portugal: Association for Information Systems, 2012, Vol. Paper 28Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Intellectual capital is the single most important asset owned by any organization. Business continuity, innovation, and long-term sustainability of Small Medium Enterprises depend partly on accumulated organizational knowledge. Knowledge is hard to capture and manage due to its implicit nature. This paper seeks to investigate how Web 2.0 technologies are being used to overcome knowledge sharing and collaboration issues. The new web technologies, which are based on platforms, are referred to as emergent social software platforms (ESSP’s). The use of ESSP’s within a business enterprise to achieve business goals is known as enterprise 2.0 (E2.0). Central to this research is the proposed knowledge sharing cycle model, which has three main stages - internalization, externalization, and objectification. This model is adapted based on the findings of a case study of IBM Corporation. The findings indicate that ESSP’s can be used to support knowledge sharing practices and to help convert knowledge into its different forms.

    Just-In-Time: mänskliga och organisatoriska faktorer1997Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Oppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Produktionsstyrningen på företagen runt om i världen är i ständig förändring. Ett begrepp som ofta används för japanska logistiska idéer är Just-In-Time (JIT). Vad som egentligen innefattas i JIT beror på vilken författare man läser. För det mesta belyses de produktionstekniska delarna av JIT.

    En del av Just-In-Time som mer sällan tas upp i litteraturen är faktorer som ibland anses som grundläggande för att JIT ska fungera framgångsrikt på företagen. Många av dessa faktorer är något mjukare aspekter av Just-In-Time. Det är om dessa mjukare faktorer mitt arbete handlar.

    Jag ska i mitt examensarbete undersöka om ett antal faktorer som tillämpas på japanska företag även tillämpas på företag i Sverige. De olika faktorer mitt arbete kretsar kring är i korthet följande:

    - Jobbrotation

    - Gemensamt beslutsfattande

    - Självstyrande grupper

    - Teamwork och grupptillhörighet

    - Möjlighet till långsiktig personalpolitik

    - Omfattande utbildning

    - Gemensamt språk inom företaget

    - Aktiv förslagsverksamhet

    - Synbarhet för alla

    - Lönesystem

    Undersökningen går ut på att få reda på om dessa faktorer är något som tillämpas på företag i Sverige. Jag vill även undersöka i vilken utsträckning de olika faktorerna tillämpas.

    Jag har valt att använda mig av en enkätundersökning för att få reda på om de olika faktorerna tillämpas i Sverige. De företag som var aktuella för att passa in på min problemställning var tillverkande företag i Skaraborg med mellan 100 och 500 anställda. Jag ringde och talade med den produktionsansvarige på företagen och berättade om mitt examensarbete innan jag skickade ut enkäterna.

    Utifrån enkätsvaren kunde jag dra slutsatserna att samtliga faktorer tillämpas på företag i Sverige. Jag kunde även dra slutsatsen att det inte är ovanligt att faktorerna tillämpas. Det fanns ingen faktor som verkade helt främmande för företagen. Jag ansåg mig även kunna säga vilken faktor som tillämpas mest och vilken som tillämpas minst. Den faktor som verkar vara vanligast är ‘Möjlighet till långsiktig personalpolitik’ och den faktor som verkar vara ovanligast är ‘Gemensamt beslutsfattande’.

    Förslag till fortsatt forskning anser jag kunna vara att undersöka ytterligare mjuka faktorer, eventuellt med inriktning på attityder, trender och vilken kunskap som finns på svenska företag om dessa eller andra faktorer.

    How to Stay in the Emotional Rollercoaster: Lessons Learnt from Designing EmRoll2010Inngår i: NordiCHI, ACM Press , 2010Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]
    Bodily expressions can be used to involve players in intense experiences with games. By physically moving, breathing, or increasing your pulse, you may start emotional processes that help create for a stronger experience of the narrative in the game. We have designed a system named EmRoll that poses riddles to pairs of players. The riddles can only be solved if the players are, or at least pretend to be, moving according to different emotional states: dancing happily, relaxed breathing and being scared. The system measures movement, breathing and sweat reactions from the two players. Lessons learnt were: playing in pairs is an impor- tant aspect as the two players influenced one-another, pull- ing each other into stronger experiences; getting excited through intense movement when involving your whole body worked well, as did relaxing through deep breathing; using the sweat response as an input mechanism worked less well; and finally, putting a Wizard (a human operator) into the loop can help bootstrap difficulty balancing and thereby increase emotional involvement.

    Feasibility Study of a Plug-in Based Architecture for Mobile Blogging2007Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    There is no standard format for posting blog entries, which results in many different web feed formats and APIs being used. This thesis work addresses the problem by determining the feasibility of the development of a plug-in based architecture, used in a mobile blogging application compatible with multiple service providers.

    During the study, a definition of what a feasible architecture would be was made based on requirements set by the stakeholders. Six models that complied with this definition were designed and compared. One of them was selected for prototyping. The prototyping phase was intended to test if the architecture could be implemented in a mobile environment. The study revealed that it is feasible to develop a plug-in based architecture to solve the problem, although with some limitations due to the dependency of libraries for streaming XML transformations not yet implemented in J2ME.

    Alarm på bryggan: trygghet och irritation2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetet på fartygsbryggor består till en stor del av kontrolluppgifter. Operatörerna, bryggteamet, har därför kontroll-  och alarmsystem till förfogande. Samspelet mellan människa och system beror delvis på användarens kunskaper och erfarenheter och delvis på bryggdesign och teknikens användarvänlighet. Arbetets ämne är hanteringen av alarm och alarmsystem på fartygsbryggor.  Syftet  var att  undersöka om det finns strategier för detta och i så fall att belysa hur dessa strategier ser ut. Därför undersöktes sju styrmäns erfarenheter med kvalitativa metoder, med halvstrukturerade intervjuer och med innehållsanalys.   

    Undersökningen ledde bl. a. till följande slutsatser:

    Alarmhanteringen sker i stort sätt enligt oskrivna regler och överenskommelser. Det ses som en del av yrket och sker vid sidan om. 

    Styrmännen följer ett handlingsschema när ett alarm påkallar uppmärksamhet.

    Styrmännen konstruerar sina egna verktyg och metoder för att komma tillrätta med ergonomiska problem och med felfunktioner.

    Ambient Interactive Architecture: Enriching Urban Spaces with Low-cost, Lightweight Interactive Lighting2010Inngår i: Proceedings of Colour & Light in Architecture, An International Conference, (November 11-12, Venice, Italy), 2010, 296-301 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate how an existing urban space, a pedestrian tunnel under a busy road, can be enriched using low-cost, lightweight sensors, digital technology, and lighting equipment. Our installation utilizes bars of LED lights placed in a pedestrian tunnel and connected to and individually controlled by a microcontroller. When vehicles pass overhead, a laser sensor detects the movement and passes on this data to the microcontroller that processes the data and changes the lighting within the tunnel in various ways according to our custom-made algorithms. The purpose of the installation has been to convey meaning in an ambient, non-prescriptive way to the pedestrians, bicyclists, and others passing through the tunnel about the traffic situation on the busy roadway overhead. In carrying out this project in a public space not originally designed for installations and events of this kind, we have encountered a large number of practical concerns that need to be dealt with, including issues of access to the power grid, changing weather condition, stakeholders and gatekeepers with different perspectives, and issues of safety and vandalization.

    Using Stop Motion Animation to Sketch in Architecture: A Practical Approach2012Inngår i: Design and Technology Education: An International Journal, ISSN 1360-1431, E-ISSN 2040-8633, Vol. 7, nr 3, 78-86 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Widely acknowledged as an archetypal design activity,sketching is typically carried out using little more than penand paper. Today’s designed artifacts however, are oftengiven qualities that are hard to capture with traditionalmeans of sketching. While pen and paper sketchingcatches the character of a building, it may not equally wellcapture how that building changes with the seasons, howpeople pass through it, how the light moves in betweenits rooms from sunrise to dawn, and how its façade subtlydecays over centuries. Yet, it is often exactly these dynamicand interactive aspects that are emphasised incontemporary design work. So is there a way for designersto be able to sketch also these dynamic processes?Over several years and in different design disciplines, wehave been exploring the potential of stop motionanimation (SMA) to serve this purpose. SMA is a basicform of animation typically applied to make physicalobjects appear to be alive. The animator moves objects insmall increments between individually photographedframes. When the photographs are combined and playedback in continuous sequence, the illusion of movement iscreated. Although SMA has a long history in filmmaking,the animation technique has received scarce attention inmost design fields including product design, architecture,and interaction design. This paper brings SMA into thearea of sketching in architecture by reporting on theplanning, conduct, result, and evaluation of a workshopcourse carried out with a group of 50 students at UmeåSchool of Architecture, Umeå University, Sweden.

    Be Green: Implementing an Interactive, Cylindrical Display in the Real World2013Inngår i: In the Proceedings of PerDis '13, Proceedings of the 2nd ACM International Symposium on Pervasive Displays (4-5 June, Mountain View, California), New York, NY: ACM Press, 2013, 55-60 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Many studies in Human-Computer Interaction and related fields, such as pervasive displays, have historically centered around user evaluation and knowledge production, focusing on usability issues and on creating a more efficient user experience. As the trajectory of HCI moves toward the so-called ‘third wave’, new values are being emphasized and explored. These include concepts such as embodiment and engagement, complementing usability as the primary metric of evaluation. This paper explores the ideation, iteration, design, and real-world deployment of such a ‘third wave’ interactive pervasive installation in the form of an interactive, large cylindrical display. The purpose was to display the air quality data in a manner that would inspire elevated environmental consciousness and discussion among Umeå citizens, especially with regard to the environmental impact of different methods of transportation.

    The Woodbot Pilots: Exploring No-hands Interaction for Interactive Public Installations2011Inngår i: In the Proceedings of the 4th World Conference on Design Research, IASDR 2011 (Oct 31-Nov 4, Delft, Netherlands), 2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We present and discuss the Woodbot Pilots, an interactive experience in the form of a gesture-based game that runs on a large-scale interactive installation designed to be placed in an airport terminal and used by the general public. The background of the project is described, as well as the installation itself and a scenario of its use. To end the paper, we discuss some of the issues it raises in relation to public installations as well as some of the lessons we have learnt in conceiving, designing, implementing, and studying its use.
