    Sammanfattning : The presence of computer technologies in our daily life is growing by leaps and bounds. One of the recent trends is the use of mobile technologies and cloud services for supporting everyday tasks and the sharing of information between users. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Pathways to future cropland : Assessing uncertainties in socio-economic processes by applying a global land-use model

    Författare :Kerstin Engstrom; Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; land-use and land cover change; socio-economic modelling; scenarios; uncertainties;

    Sammanfattning : Global agricultural production almost tripled within the last five decades. The production increase wasbased on expanding cropland and pastures, as well as the intensification of agriculture, including increased use ofhigh yielding crop varieties, machinery, irrigation, artificial fertilisers, and pesticides.

  3. 3. Are uncertain uncertainties useful? : towards improved quality assessment of spatial data

    Författare :Britt-Inger Rönnbäck; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : A decision is usually based on some kind of information. In the decision- taking phase it is important to know the extent to which the information about the different alternatives that are to be decided on is reliable. LÄS MER

  4. 4. INDIVIDUAL GENETIC RESEARCH RESULTS : Uncertainties, Conceptions, and Preferences

    Författare :Jennifer Viberg Johansson; M G Hansson; Pär Segerdahl; Sophie Langenskiöld; Marion McAllister; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis contributes to the ethical discussion on how to handle incidental findings in biomedical research using sequencing technologies from a theoretical and an empirical perspective. Study I and II are theoretical studies that used conceptual analysis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Managing uncertainties in geotechnical parameters : From the perspective of Eurocode 7

    Författare :Anders Prästings; Stefan Larsson; Johan Spross; Rasmus Müller; Kok-Kwang Phoon; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Eurocode 7; Characteristic value; Partial-factor method; Reliability-based design; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Geotechnical engineering is strongly associated with large uncertainties. Geotechnical site investigations are made only at discrete points and most of a soil volume is never tested. A major issue is therefore how to cost effectively reduce geotechnical uncertainties with respect to structural performance. LÄS MER
