  1. 1. Shadows of Cavernous Shades: Charting the Chiaroscuro of Realistic Computing

    University dissertation from Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Author : Erik Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; history of computing; philosophy of technology; philosophy of computing; realistic computing; virtual reality; object-orientation; business objects; software components; client server database access architectures; Computer science; numerical analysis; systems; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll;

    Abstract : During the early 1990s, a novel style of programming often referred to as component-oriented programming quickly grew popular as the state-of-the-art in graphical user interface and client/server development on Windows-based personal computers, largely in competition with object-oriented programming, a partly similar, partly different programming paradigm, with which component-orientation is often compared, combined, and confused. Also during the 1990s, the world-wide web spread its arachnoid gossamer over the globe with deep-ranging ramifications for software component technology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigations into Information Semantics and Ethics of Computing

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalens högskola

    Author : Gordana Dodig-Crnkovic; Mälardalens högskola.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; Computer Science; datavetenskap; Computing and Philosophy; Philosophy of Computing; Philosophy of Information; infocomputation; computing nature; computational cognition; ethics; values;

    Abstract : The recent development of the research field of Computing and Philosophy has triggered investigations into the theoretical foundations of computing and information.This thesis consists of two parts which are the result of studies in two areas of Philosophy of Computing (PC) and Philosophy of Information (PI) regarding the production of meaning (semantics) and the value system with applications (ethics).

  3. 3. Support for Ad-Hoc applications in ubiquitous computing

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : David Svensson Fors; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pervasive computing; Palpable computing;

    Abstract : This thesis presents work within the area of ubiquitous computing, an area based on a vision of computers blending into the background. The work has been done within the EU project PalCom that introduces palpable computing. Palpable computing puts a new perspective on ubiquitous computing, by focusing on human understandability.

  4. 4. A Design Toolkit for Emerging Learning Landscapes Supported by Ubiquitous Computing

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Daniel Spikol; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Technology-enhanced learning; mobile and ubiquitous computing; design-based research; interaction design; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : The widespread use of mobile devices and their integration in our everyday ac- tivities is changing the way we communicate, share information, and learn. The rapid adoption of powerful mobile devices also offers new opportunities to sup- port teaching and learning. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exploiting Fine-grain Parallelism in Concurrent Constraint Languages

    University dissertation from Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Johan Montelius; Uppsala universitet.; SICS.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datalogi; Computing Science; Implicit parallelism; Concurrent Constraint Programming; Cache performance; Logic programming; Abstract machine; Parallel execution; Scheduling; Multiprocessor; Shared memory;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents the design, implementation, and evaluation of a system that exploits fine-grain implicit parallelism in concurrent constraint programming language. The system is able to outperform a C implementation of an algorithm with complex dependencies without any user annotations. READ MORE
