  1. 1. Self-Knowledge/Self-Regulation/Self-Control: A Ubiquitous Computing Perspective

    Author : Lars Hall; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; pervasive computing; affective computing; persuasive computing; Psychology; Psykologi; ubiquitous computing; computer-mediated extrospection; precommitment; distributed motivation; distributed cognition; neurofeedback; biofeedback; metacognition; brain-imaging; learning strategies; emotion regulation; mental strategies; verbal report; implicit learning; consciousness; introspection; self-control; Self-knowledge; self-regulation;

    Abstract : This thesis is about self-knowledge, self-regulation and self-control. All three of these terms are easily understandable, and apply to situations in our daily lives (like misjudging one’s own competence at retiling the bathroom floor, or feeling the anxiety and thrill of doing unsupervised work, or guiltily hitting the snooze-button for the fifth time, and missing half a day of school).

  3. 3. Situation awareness in pervasive computing systems : reasoning, verification, prediction

    Author : Andrey Boytsov; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; situation awareness; context awareness; pervasive computing; ubiquitous computing; context prediction; Pervasive Mobile Computing; Distribuerade datorsystem;

    Abstract : The paradigm of pervasive computing aims to integrate the computing technologies in a graceful and transparent manner, and make computing solutions available anywhere and at any time. Different aspects of pervasive computing, like smart homes, smart offices, social networks, micromarketing applications, PDAs are becoming a part of everyday life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Methodology and Infrastructure for Statistical Computing in Genomics : Applications for Ancient DNA

    Author : Kristiina Ausmees; Carl Nettelblad; Mattias Jakobsson; Flora Jay; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; statistical computing; genotype imputation; ancient DNA; deep learning; dimensionality reduction; genetic clustering; distributed computing; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the development and evaluation of computational methods for analysis of genetic data. A particular focus is on ancient DNA recovered from archaeological finds, the analysis of which has contributed to novel insights into human evolutionary and demographic history, while also introducing new challenges and the demand for specialized methods.

  5. 5. Artefactual Intelligence: The Development and Use of Cognitively Congenial Artefacts

    Author : David de Léon; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; 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
