  1. 1. Decisional-Emotional Support System for a Synthetic Agent Influence of Emotions in Decision-Making Toward the Participation of Automata in Society

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Javier Francisco Guerrero Razuri; Aron Larsson; David Sundgren; Rahim Rahmani; Alessandro Villa; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Affective Computing; Machine Learning; Adversarial Risk Analysis; Broaden and Build Theory; Facial Expression Recognition; Speech Emotion Recognition; Detection of Emotional Information; Emotional self-regulation; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : Emotion influences our actions, and this means that emotion has subjective decision value. Emotions, properly interpreted and understood, of those affected by decisions provide feedback to actions and, as such, serve as a basis for decisions. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Department of Cognitive Science, Lund University

    Author : David de Léon; [2003]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; pervasive computing; affective computing; persuasive computing; Psychology; Psykologi; computer-mediated extrospection; precommitment; self-control; situated cognition; distributed motivation; cognitive ethnography; distributed cognition; cognitive biographies; redesign; task–artefact cycle; artefact evolution; artefact design; task structure; cognitive task; cognitive congeniality; artefactual intelligence; cognitive artefacts; task environment; tools; Cognition; artefacts; ubiquitous computing;

    Abstract : How can tools help structure tasks to make them cognitively easier to perform? How do artefacts, and our strategies for using them, develop over time in cognitively beneficial ways? These are two of the main questions that are explored in the five papers collected in this thesis. The first paper details an ethnographic study conducted on people cooking in their homes. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Author : Erik Persson; [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
