    Abstract : A challenge for the clinical management of Parkinson's disease (PD) is the large within- and between-patient variability in symptom profiles as well as the emergence of motor complications which represent a significant source of disability in patients. This thesis deals with the development and evaluation of methods and systems for supporting the management of PD by using repeated measures, consisting of subjective assessments of symptoms and objective assessments of motor function through fine motor tests (spirography and tapping), collected by means of a telemetry touch screen device.

    Abstract : In the last ten years, limited clock frequency scaling and increasing power density has shifted IC design focus towards parallelism, heterogeneity and energy efficiency. Improving energy efficiency is by no means simple and it calls for a reevaluation of old design choices in processor architecture, and perhaps more importantly, development of new programming methodologies that exploit the features of modern architectures.

  3. 3. Evaluating credal set theory as a belief framework in high-level information fusion for automated decision-making

    Author : Alexander Karlsson; Sten F. Andler; Ronnie Johansson; Lars Karlsson; Galina Rogova; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; High-level information fusion; belief framework; credal set theory; Bayesian theory; Computer science; Datavetenskap; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Computer and Systems Science; Datalogi; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : High-level information fusion is a research field in which methods for achieving an overall understanding of the current situation in an environment of interest are studied. The ultimate goal of these methods is to provide effective decision-support for human or automated decision-making. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluating the performance of TEWA systems

    Author : Fredrik Johansson; Göran Falkman; Lars Karlsson; Lars Niklasson; Martin Holmberg; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; air defense; information fusion; performance evaluation; threat evaluation; TEWA; weapon allocation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Computer and Systems Science; Data- och systemvetenskap; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : It is in military engagements the task of the air defense to protect valuable assets such as air bases from being destroyed by hostile aircrafts and missiles. In order to fulfill this mission, the defenders are equipped with sensors and firing units. To infer whether a target is hostile and threatening or not is far from a trivial task. READ MORE

  5. 5. Visual analytics for maritime anomaly detection

    Author : María José Riveiro; Göran Falkman; Tom Ziemke; Dag Stranneby; Mikael Jern; Maria Riveiro; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; visual analytics; anomaly detection; maritime traffic monitoring; analytical reasoning; information fusion; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Information technology; Informationsteknik; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Computer and Systems Science; Data- och systemvetenskap; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : The surveillance of large sea areas typically involves  the analysis of huge quantities of heterogeneous data.  In order to support the operator while monitoring maritime traffic, the identification of anomalous behavior or situations that might need further investigation may reduce operators' cognitive load.
