  1. 1. Spatial positioning : method development for spatial analysis of interaction in buildings

    Author : Henrik Markhede; Jesper Steen; John Peponis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Abstract : In offices, knowledge sharing largely depends on everyday face-to-face interaction patterns. These interaction patterns may depend on how employees move through the office space. This thesis explores how these spatial relations influence individual choices with respect to employee movements or routes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vintage models of spatial structural change

    Author : Lars Westin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; adiabatic approximation; dynamics; input-output; interregional computable general equilibrium; slaving principle; spatial models; spatial linear expenditure system; spatial price equilibrium; transportation networks; vintage function;

    Abstract : In the study a class of multisector network models, suitable for simulation of the interaction between production, demand, trade, and infrastructure, is presented. A characteristic feature of the class is a vintage model of the production system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bringing the avatar to life : Studies and developments in facial communication for virtual agents and robots

    Author : Samer Al Moubayed; Jonas Beskow; Stefan Kopp; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Avatar; Speech Communication; Facial animation; Nonverbal; Social; Robot; Human-like; Face-to-face; Prosody; Pitch; Prominence; Furhat; Gaze; Head-pose; Dialogue; Interaction; Multimodal; Multiparty; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis comes in pursuit of the ultimate goal of building spoken and embodied human-like interfaces that are able to interact with humans under human terms. Such interfaces need to employ the subtle, rich and multidimensional signals of communicative and social value that complement the stream of words – signals humans typically use when interacting with each other.

  4. 4. Sound perception and design in multimodal environments

    Author : PerMagnus Lindborg; Anders K. Friberg; Daniel Västfjäll; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; sound; perception; design; multimodal; environment; soundscape; music; listening; crossmodal; psychoacoustics; psychophysiology; personality trait; emotion; appraisal; aesthetics; colour; correlation; regression; classification; sonification; Speech and Music Communication; Tal- och musikkommunikation;

    Abstract : This dissertation is about sound in context. Since sensory processing is inherently multimodal, research in sound is necessarily multidisciplinary. The present work has been guided by principles of systematicity, ecological validity, complementarity of  methods, and integration of science and art. READ MORE

  5. 5. Social Awareness Support for Cooperation : Design Experience and Theoretical Models

    Author : Ovidiu Sandor; Yngve Sundblad; Cristian Bogdan; Steven Benford; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HCI; CSCW; social awareness; user-centred design; Spatial Model; Aether Model; communities; knowledge; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the research question of how social awareness support in computer systems for groups and communities can be designed in a successful way. While the field of human-computer interaction has been working with similar questions for more than 20 years, many aspects of people’s cooperation and the way those should be considered in system design still need further consideration and research.
