User-defined semantics for the design of IoT systems enabling smart interactive experiences
Automation in computing systems has always been considered a valuable solution to unburden the user. Internet of Things (IoT) technology best suits automation in different domains, such as home automation, retail, industry, ...
Reducing Procrastination while Improving Performance: A Wiki-powered Experiment with Students
(ACM Press, 2019-08-22)
Students in higher education are traditionally requested to produce various pieces of written work during the courses they undertake. When students' work is submitted online as a whole, both the ethically questionable act ...
Investigation of the dependency of the drivers’ emotional experience on different road types and driving conditions
The growing sophistication of technologies and sociological advances are major causes for the dramatic change the automotive sector is currently undergoing. To address changes from a human-centered design perspective an ...
Evaluation of a Visual Tool for Early Patent Infringement Detection During Design
(Springer Verlag, 2019-07-12)
Patent infringement detection usually implies research among documents in different forms, in both natural and unstructured language, often involving a lot of human resources and time. In order to ease this patent check ...
Author-Driven Approaches to Computational Narrative Design for Games
(Springer Verlag, 2019-06-27)
Accessible Head Mounted Displays (HMD) have provided mass access to Extended Reality (XR) content as never before. One of the key complaints from HMD owners, however, is the lack of substantial high-quality content (Moore ...
Fostering computational thinking through collaborative game-based learning
Algorithms are more and more pervading our everyday life: from automatic checkouts in supermarkets and e-banking to booking a flight online. Understanding an algorithmic solution to a problem is a very relevant activity ...
Human and data-driven design fictions: : Entering the near-future zone
Design for invention : annotation of functional geometry interaction for representing novel working principles
In some mechanical engineering devices the novelty or inventive step of a patented design relies heavily upon how geometric features contribute to device functions. Communicating the functional interactions between geometric ...
An Exploratory Design Workshop to Elicit what Feels Natural when Interacting with an Automobile’s Secondary Controls
Exploratory design workshops were conducted using five participatory methods with 10 automobile drivers in order to understand what characterizes natural-feeling interaction with automobiles’ secondary, comfort, and ...
An ant-colony based approach for real-time implicit collaborative information seeking
We propose an approach based on Swarm Intelligence — more specifically on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) — to improve search engines’ performance and reduce information overload by exploiting collective users’ behavior. We ...
