  1. 1. Executions Power and Expression in Networked and Computational Media

    Detta är en avhandling från Malmö : Malmö University

    Författare :Eric Snodgrass; Malmö University.; Malmö University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Media Technology; Medieteknik; execution; media studies; software studies; history of technology; computation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Technology; media and communications;

    Sammanfattning : This research looks at questions of power and expression as they are composed in various ways within networked and computationally-informed situations of the present. Drawing from the term as it is originally invoked in practices of computing, the research puts forward execution as a central conceptual framework for its investigations. LÄS MER

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Författare :Erik Persson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :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;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Cognitive Science, Lund University

    Författare :David de Léon; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :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;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Situation awareness in pervasive computing systems reasoning, verification, prediction

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Författare :Andrey Boytsov; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; situation awareness; context awareness; pervasive computing; ubiquitous computing; context prediction; Information technology - Computer science; Informationsteknik - Datorvetenskap; Distribuerade datorsystem; Mobile and Pervasive Computing;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Smart, Fast and Beautiful On Rhetoric of Technology and Computing Discourse in Sweden 1955-1995

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Magnus Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1997]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; rhetoric of technology; computing history; technological discourse; technological frame; actor network; STS; social construction; computerisation; information technology; computer science; government policy; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Ever since the computer was introduced some 50 years ago, its role in society has been increasing. From being a tool for scientists and technicians, the computer has become a concern for everyone. Different actors engaged in introducing — or denouncing — this technology, have used many strong words for winning others to the cause. LÄS MER
