    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens skola har svårt att skapa miljöer där barn med olika förutsättningar kan mötas i gemenskap och på lika villkor. Trenden visar att elever med funktionsnedsättningar allt oftare särskiljs istället för att inkluderas i en skola för alla. Tekniken finns men svårigheten ligger i att implementera den i barns och ungas daliga liv.

    The application of Item Response Theory on a teaching strategy profile questionnaire2010In: BMC Medical Education, ISSN 1472-6920, E-ISSN 1472-6920, Vol. 10, no 14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    In medical education research, various questionnaires are often used to study possible relationships between strategies and approaches to teaching and learning and the outcome of these. However, judging the applicability of such questionnaires or the interpretation of the results is not trivial.

    Methods

    As a way to develop teacher thinking, teaching strategy profiles were calculated for teachers in a research intensive department at Karolinska Institutet. This study compares the sum score, that was inherent in the questionnaire used, with an Item Response Theory (IRT) approach. Three teaching dimensions were investigated and the intended sum scores were investigated by IRT analysis.

    Results

    Agreements as well as important differences were found. The use of the sum score seemed to agree reasonably with an IRT approach for two of the dimensions, while the third dimension could not be identified neither by a the sum score, nor by an IRT approach, as the items included showed conflicting messages.

    Conclusions

    This study emphasizes the possibilities to gain better insight and more relevant interpretation of a questionnaire by use of IRT. A sum score approach should not be taken for granted. Its use has to be thoroughly evaluated.

    Microsimulation Models for Disaster Policy Making2005Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Two executable simulation models for answering policy questions were designed and implemented. The first for a flood management case, and the second for a disease transmission case that is currently underway. The flood simulation model differs from earlier natural disaster simulation models in several respects. It represents explicitly the geographical location and the economic strength of each household. It is also equipped with a graphical user interface, making it possible to design policies interactively, and to test their outcomes. If policy options are compared, the simulation results can automatically be transformed into decision trees. The flood simulation model shows that a micro-level representation makes it possible to investigate the distributional effects of policy changes. Novel features of the disease transmission model include the use of (anonymized) data representing nine million individuals, the inclusion of important parts of the contact patterns, and the explicit representation of places. The disease transmission model shows that the incorporation of social structure allows for a more realistic representation of disease spread than do models that assume homogenous mixing. Using this model, it is possible to conduct experiments of significant policy relevance, such as investigating the initial growth of an epidemic on a real-world network. Together, the two cases demonstrate the usefulness of a spatially explicit micro-level representation for policy simulation models in the area of disaster management.

    Spatial and Dynamic Modelling of Flood Management Policies in the Upper Tisza2003Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Flood management policy has been the subject of an international joint research

    project with the Upper Tisza in Hungary as its pilot study area. Design specications

    for a geographically explicit simulation model are presented. Potential flood

    management policies, based on surveys and interviews with stakeholders, are presented.

    Some experiments on an executable prototype of the simulation model are

    also reported on, where the consequences of flood management policies are investigated.

    Focus has been on nancial policy measures, mainly insurance. Besides

    more traditional evaluation of policy scenarios, the model incorporates adaptive

    optimisation functionality. The report incorporates three contributions:

    1. the insurance policy issue in Hungary is framed in the broader context of flood

    management

    2. the structuring of a flood risk policy model, capable of simulating flood failures

    and estimating the economic consequences

    3. reports from policy experiments performed on the implemented prototype

    flood risk policy model

    Micro-simulation of a smallpox outbreak using official register data2010In: Euro surveillance, ISSN 1025-496X, Vol. 15, no 35, p. 17-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To explore the efficacy of four vaccine-based policy strategies (ring vaccination, targeted vaccination, mass vaccination, and pre-vaccination of healthcare personnel combined with ring vaccination) for controlling smallpox outbreaks in Sweden, disease transmission on a spatially explicit social network was simulated. The mixing network was formed from high-coverage official register data of the entire Swedish population, building on the Swedish Total Population Register, the Swedish Employment Register, and the Geographic Database of Sweden. The largest reduction measured in the number of infections was achieved when combining ring vaccination with a pre-vaccination of healthcare personnel. In terms of per dose effectiveness, ring vaccination was by far the most effective strategy. The results can to some extent be adapted to other diseases and environments, including other countries, and the methods used can be analysed in their own right.

    Multi-criteria decision-making of policy strategies with public-private re-insurance systems.2004In: Risk, Decision, and Policy, ISSN 1357-5309, E-ISSN 1466-4534, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 23-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes an integrated flood catastrophe model as well as some results of a case study made in the Upper Tisza region in north-eastern Hungary: the Palad-Csecsei basin. The background data was provided through the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and complemented by interviews with different stakeholders in the region. Based on these data, for which a large degree of uncertainty is prevailing, we demonstrate how an implementation of a simulation and decision analytical model can provide insights into the effects of imposing different policy options for a flood risk management program in the region. We focus herein primarily on general options for designing a public-private insurance and reinsurance system for Hungary. Obviously, this is a multi-criteria and multi-stakeholder problem and cannot be solved using standard approaches. It should, however, be emphasised that the main purpose of this article is not to provide any definite recommendations, but rather to explore a set of policy packages that could gain a consensus among the stakeholders.

    Den ljusnande framtid är vård: delresultat från LEV-projektet2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    År 2050 väntas andelen äldre i befolkningen öka från dagens 17 procent till 25 procent. Befolkningen åldras, hälsan förbättras och livslängden ökar. Det är en positiv utveckling som samhället måste anpassas till.

    Därför har en arbetsgrupp inom Socialdepartementet med en unik modell simulerat hur 300 000 individer åldras fram till 2050 och hur det väntas påverka hälsa, sjuklighet och dödlighet samt det framtida behovet av vård och omsorg. Simuleringarna visar att det är möjligt att kombinera åtgärder för att möta den åldrande befolkningens ökande behov av vård och omsorg om 10-15 år. Men det krävs ett målmedvetet arbete med att

    • förbättra hälsa och funktionsförmåga,
    • öka tillgängligheten,
    • få en effektiv vård och omsorg som tillämpar dagens kunskap och tänker nytt
    • forska och utveckla.

    MicroWorlds as a Tool for Policy Making2001Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Hungarian government is experiencing escalating costs for ood mitigation

    measures and for economical compensation to victims. In a joint

    research project between the International Institute of Applied System Analysis

    (IIASA) in Austria, Computer and System Science Department (DSV)

    in Sweden, and the Hungarian Academy of Science, the ooding problem of

    Upper Tisza in Hungary is investigated. A catastrophe simulation model has

    been implemented, where dierent policy options are tested and evaluated.

    We investigate how the willingness to buy insurance aects the results on

    the macro-level and on the micro-level.

    Applying the Consumat Model to Flood Management Policies2003In: Agent-based simulation, 2003Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The number and severity of weather related catastrophes is

    increasing. Economic losses from these catastrophes are

    escalating, mainly as a result of concentration of assets and

    population in high-risk areas. How to deal with these

    economic liabilities in a fair way at the level of the individual

    property owners is the focus of our research.

    As a case study we choose the Tisza, a river in Hungary that

    flows through one of the poorest agricultural regions of

    Europe that frequently floods. The use of a simulation model

    for evaluating alternative flood management policies is a

    natural choice, since it is impossible to predict the time,

    location and magnitude of a flood; historical data is of limited

    use when looking at the outcome of future policies. The

    behaviour of the river and the financial consequences are

    simulated on a year-by-year basis.

    Here we have extended the simulation model by using the

    Consumat approach to model the individual property owners.

    We compare the results with respect to wealth distribution in

    the case of Consumat agents and simple (non-Consumat)

    agents. In the Consumat case, the results show that system is

    more dynamic and more realistic.

    Abstract [en]

    Online review Web sites have enabled new interactions between companies and their customers. In this articlewe draw on interviews with users, reviewers, and establishments to explore how local review Web sitescan change interactions around local places. ReviewWeb sites such as Yelp and Tripadvisor allow customersto “previsit” establishments and areas of a city before an actual visit. The collection of a large numbers ofuser-generated reviews has also created a new genre of writing, with reviewers gaining considerable pleasurefrom passing on word of mouth and influencing others’ choices. Reviews also offer a new channel ofcommunication between establishments, customers, and competitors. We discuss how review Web sites canbe designed to cater for a broader range of interactions around reviews beyond a focus on recommendations

    Ephemeral Photowork: Understanding the Mobile Social Photography Ecosystem2016In: Proceedings of the Tenth International AAAI Conference onWeb and Social Media (ICWSM 2016), AAAI Press, 2016, p. 551-554Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For many years, researchers have explored digital support for photographs and various methods of interaction around those photos. Services like Instagram, Facebook, and Flickr have demonstrated the value of online photographs in social media. Yet we know relatively little about these new practices of mobile social photography and in-situ sharing. Drawing on screen and audio recordings of mobile photo app use, this paper documents the ephemeral practices of social photography with mobile devices. We uncover how photo use on mobile devices is centered around social interactions both through online services, but also face-to-face around the devices themselves. We argue for a new role for the mobile photograph, supporting networks of communication through instantaneous interactions, complemented with rich, in person discussions of captured images with family and friends; photography not for careful selection and archive, but as quick social play and talk. The paper concludes by discussing the design possibilities of ephemeral communication.

    Enjoying Machines2015Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The dominant feature of modern technology is not how productive it makes us, or how it has revolutionized the workplace, but how enjoyable it is. We take pleasure in our devices, from smartphones to personal computers to televisions. Whole classes of leisure activities rely on technology. How has technology become such an integral part of enjoyment? In this book, Barry Brown and Oskar Juhlin examine the relationship between pleasure and technology, investigating what pleasure and leisure are, how they have come to depend on the many forms of technology, and how we might design technology to support enjoyment. They do this by studying the experience of enjoyment, documenting such activities as computer gameplay, deer hunting, tourism, and television watching. They describe technologies that support these activities, including prototype systems that they themselves developed.

    Brown and Juhlin argue that pleasure is fundamentally social in nature. We learn how to enjoy ourselves from others, mastering it as a set of skills. Drawing on their own ethnographic studies and on research from economics, psychology, and philosophy, Brown and Juhlin argue that enjoyment is a key concept in understanding the social world. They propose a framework for the study of enjoyment: the empirical program of enjoyment.

    Abstract [en]

    In-car GPS based satellite navigation systems are now a common part of driving, providing turn-by-turn navigation instructions on smartphones, portable units or in-car dash- board navigation systems. This paper uses interactional analysis of video data from fifteen naturalistically recorded journeys with GPS to understand the navigational practices deployed by drivers and passengers. The paper documents five types of ‘trouble’ where GPS systems cause issues and confusion for drivers around: destinations, routes, maps & sensors, timing and relevance and legality. The paper argues that to design GPS systems better we need to move beyond the notion of a docile driver who follows GPS command blindly, to a better understanding of how drivers, passengers and GPS systems work together. We develop this in discuss- ing how technology might better support ‘instructed action’.

    The Trouble with Autopilots: Assisted and Autonomous Driving on the Social Road2017In: Proceedings of the 2017 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017, p. 416-429Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As self-driving cars have grown in sophistication and ability, they have been deployed on the road in both localised tests and as regular private vehicles. In this paper we draw upon publicly available videos of autonomous and assisted driving (specifically the Tesla autopilot and Google self-driving car) to explore how their drivers and the drivers of other cars interact with, and make sense of, the actions of these cars. Our findings provide an early perspective on human interaction with new forms of driving involving assisted-car drivers, autonomous vehicles and other road users. The focus is on social interaction on the road, and how drivers communicate through, and interpret, the movement of cars. We provide suggestions toward increasing the transparency of autopilots' actions for both their driver and other drivers.

    What it means to change lanes: actions, emotions and wayfinding in the family car2012In: Semiotica, ISSN 0037-1998, E-ISSN 1613-3692, ISSN 1613-3692, Vol. 191, p. 117-135Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we investigate how the sequential organization and settlement of disagreements comes to shape, and be shaped by, navigation. Using extracts of in-car interaction, we examine the gestalt of projectable aspects of road travel, car movements, and driver-navigator talk. Navigation when accomplished without maps relies on making sense of streets, landmarks, and signs, activities that are displayed through passengers and drivers giving directions to each other, alongside embodied references to passing roadside features and the movement of the vehicle. More broadly, “finding the way” is bound up with the social relationships between passengers — in particular families caring for one another and showing their epistemic and emotional stance on particular matters. To examine this we draw on existing conversation analytic work on epistemics, stance, and emotion to explore the potentially argumentative character of direction-giving and direction-receiving and how this comes to be combined with the task at hand.

    Word of mouth: products, conversations and consumption2014In: Consumption, markets & culture, ISSN 1025-3866, E-ISSN 1477-223X, Vol. 17, no 1, p. 29-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While there is a rich collection of studies of consumption and identity, the role of buying practices in ordinary conversations has been largely neglected. Minor items and major purchases regularly play a key role in furnishing our talk with topics, news, jokes and formulations of what kind of people we are. This paper unpacks the idea of post-purchase conversations contained within the common phrase “word of mouth.” What happens when products are examined in ordinary talk is pursued through the close analysis of a series of conversations around a significant purchase (a mountain bike). Drawing on the work of Harvey Sacks, and conversation analysis more broadly, this paper documents how products as a topic provide not only resources for small talk, but also an opportunity to consider our identity and its transformation. In conclusion, this paper argues that the knowledge and experience that circulate outside of the actual marketplace or point of purchase are part of a domain of economics as ordinary practice.

    iPhone in vivo: video analysis of mobile device use2013In: Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, New York: ACM Press, 2013, p. 1031-1040Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the widespread use of mobile devices, details of mobile technology use 'in the wild' have proven difficult to collect. This paper uses video data to gain new insight into the use of mobile computing devices. Our new method combines screen-capture of iPhone use with video recordings from wearable cameras. We use this data to analyse how mobile device use is threaded into other co-present activities, focusing on the use of maps and internet searches. Close analysis reveals novel aspects of gestures on touch screens, how they serve 'double duty' - both as interface gestures but as as resources for ongoing joint action. We go on to describe how users 'walk the blue dot' to orientate themselves, and how searches are occasioned by the local environment. In conclusion, we argue that mobile devices - rather than pushing us away from the world around us - are instead just another thread in the complex tapestry of everyday interaction.

    100 days of iPhone use: understanding the details of mobile device use2014In: Proceedings of the 16th international conference on Human-computer interaction with mobile devices & services, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014, p. 223-232Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Internet connected mobile devices are an increasingly ubiquitous part of our everyday lives and we present here the results from unobtrusive audio-video recordings of iPhone use -- over 100 days of device use collected from 15 users. The data reveals for analysis the everyday, moment-by-moment use of contemporary mobile phones. Through video analysis of usage we observed how messages, social media and internet use are integrated and threaded into daily life, interaction with others, and everyday events such as transport, delays, establishment choice and entertainment. We document various aspects of end-user mobile device usage, starting with understanding how it is occasioned by context. We then characterise the temporal and sequential nature of use. Lastly, we discuss the social nature of mobile phone usage. Beyond this analysis, we reflect on how to draw these points into ideas for design.

    Text in Talk: Lightweight Messages in Co- Present Interaction2018In: ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction, ISSN 1073-0516, E-ISSN 1557-7325, Vol. 24, no 6, article id 42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    While lightweight text messaging applications have been researched extensively, new messaging applications such as iMessage, WhatsApp, and Snapchat offer some new functionality and potential uses. Moreover, the role messaging plays in interaction and talk with those who are co-present has been neglected. In this article, we draw upon a corpus of naturalistic recordings of text message reading and composition to document the face-to-face life of text messages. Messages, both sent and received, share similarities with reported speech in conversation; they can become topical resource for local conversation-supporting verbatim reading aloud or adaptive summaries. Yet with text messages, their verifiability creates a distinctive resource. Similarly, in message composition, what to write may be discussed with collocated others. We conclude with discussion of designs for messaging in both face-to-face, and remote, communication.

    Five Provocations for Ethical HCI Research2016In: Proceedings of the 2016 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2016, p. 852-863Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present five provocations for ethics, and ethical research, in HCI. We discuss, in turn, informed consent, the researcher-participant power differential, presentation of data in publications, the role of ethical review boards, and, lastly, corporate-facilitated projects. By pointing to unintended consequences of regulation and oversimplifications of unresolvable moral conflicts, we propose these provocations not as guidelines or recommendations but as instruments for challenging our views on what it means to do ethical research in HCI. We then suggest an alternative grounded in the sensitivities of those being studied and based on everyday practice and judgement, rather than one driven by bureaucratic, legal, or philosophical concerns. In conclusion, we call for a wider and more practical discussion on ethics within the community, and suggest that we should be more supportive of low-risk ethical experimentation to further the field.

    Collecting and Associating Data2010Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The present invention relates to a method and system for collecting human migration data into a database, comprising the steps of receiving information regarding the spatial movement, here called a path, or stationary position, here called a station, of a mobile device in a communication network, from the same communication network, and associating information or a sequence of information that represents a path or a station, here called a signal, with previously collected specific information regarding an individual associated with the mobile device. The inventive method specifically comprises the steps of de-identifying the information by deleting all information that can uniquely identify the mobile device or the individual from the signal and from the specific information, and storing the signal together with the specific information in the database, the signal and personal information thus being associated with each other and stored without any information that can uniquely identify the mobile device or the individual.

    Abstract [en]

    With the emerging use of technological interventions in education systems, e-learning systems contribute immensely in education delivery. However, with substantial efforts from the Rwandan Government, there are still claims about the lack of online support systems especially for thesis process in Rwandan higher education. Furthermore, the experience has proved that some systems implemented at University of Rwanda have failed because the adoption is loath. Therefore, one of the reasons is that some innovative systems are fully diffused and deployed in the university without prior test to its future users to know the user behavioural intention from their perceptions in regard to a particular system. This study follows the introduction of one learning management system called “SciPro” and the aim of this study was to evaluate the future key users’ perceptions about the relevance of SciPro System in improving thesis process. Embedded Case study was used as a research strategy to collect data from 31 workshop participants using a questionnaire. Afterwards, convenient interviews were conducted at 5 colleges during and after testing some features and functionalities of SciPro System. Results show that future users express a reasonable level of intention and use of the system. They also appreciate the usefulness of SciPro resources at a higher level. Thus, on the other hand, one concludes that proposed customization of SciPro in accordance to Rwandan education system should be considered for some features such as peer review process and anti-plagiarism control functionalities. The study also reveals that there are other factors outside SciPro System, such as, management support, high-speed Internet access and motivation to innovators and early adopters that should be considered throughout the implementation process.

    ICT Capacity Building: A Critical Discourse Analysis of Rwandan Policies from Higher Education Perspective2016In: European Journal of Open, Distance and e-Learning, ISSN 1027-5207, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 46-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the development of technology in the 21st Century, education systems attempt to integrate technology-based tools to improve experiences in pedagogy and administration. It is becoming increasingly prominent to build human and ICT infrastructure capacities at universities from policy to implementation level. Using a critical discourse analysis, this study investigates the articulation of ICT capacity building strategies from both national and institutional ICT policies in Rwanda, focusing on the higher education. Eleven policy documents were collected and deeply analyzed to understand which claims of ICT capacity building are made. The analysis shows that strategies for building ICT capacities are evidently observed from national level policies and only in two institutional policies (KIST and NUR). Among 25 components of ICT capacity building used, the ones related to human capacity are not plainly described. Additionally, neither national nor institutional policy documents include the creation of financial schemes for students to acquire ICT tools whilst learners are key stakeholders. Although there is some translation of ICT capacity building strategies from national to some institutional policies, planning for motivation and provision of incentives to innovators is not stated in any of the institutional policies and this is a key to effective technology integration.

    Exploring Teacher Adoption and Use of an Upgraded eLearning Platform for ICT Capacity Building at University of Rwanda2016In: IST-Africa 2016 Conference: Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham, Miriam Cunningham, IEEE Computer Society, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Integrating technology in pedagogy is a step for ICT capacity building for higher education to meet its current demands. Therefore, the integration of eLearning systems has been problematic, albeit huge investments in ICT infrastructure. This study investigates teacher adoption of a new upgraded eLearning platform being integrated at University of Rwanda. A six-constructs model related to technology adoption was used to design questionnaire and interviews. Closed and open-ended questions seeking perceptions on the UR eLearning environment were used on 87 respondents who were purposively selected. Findings indicate that although participants find the system useful, easy and trustworthy, the intention for adopting and using it is very low due managerial support and technical support. Gaps in policy synergy, incentives, basic infrastructure, managerial and technical support were among the identified bottlenecks contributing negatively to the low degree of teacher intention. The study concludes by proposing some remedies to address the above challenges.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we describe a method for mapping the phonological feature location of Swedish Sign Language (SSL) signs to the meanings in the Swedish semantic dictionary SALDO. By doing so, we observe clear differences in the distribution of meanings associated with different locations on the body. The prominence of certain locations for specific meanings clearly point to iconic mappings between form and meaning in the lexicon of SSL, which pinpoints modalityspecific properties of the visual modality.

    Automatic Extraction and Classification of Patients’ Smoking Status from Free Text Using Natural Language Processing2016In: Value in Health, ISSN 1098-3015, E-ISSN 1524-4733, Vol. 19, no 7, article id A373Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives

    To develop a machine learning algorithm for automatic classification of smoking status (smoker, ex-smoker, non-smoker and unknown status) in EMRs, and validate the predictive accuracy compared to a rule-based method. Smoking is a leading cause of death worldwide and may introduce confounding in research based on real world data (RWD). Information on smoking is often documented in free text fields in Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), but structured RWD on smoking is sparse.

    Methods

    32 predictive models were trained with the Weka machine learning suite, tweaking sentence frequency, classifier type, tokenization and attribute selection using a database of 85,000 classified sentences. The models were evaluated using F-Score and Accuracy based on out-of-sample test data including 8,500 sentences. The error weight matrix was used to select the best model, assigning a weight to each type of misclassification and applying it to the models confusion matrices.

    Results

    The best performing model was based on the Support Vector Machine (SVM) Sequential Minimal Optimization (SMO) classifier using a polynomial kernel with parameter C equal to 6 and a combination of unigrams and bigrams as tokens. Sentence frequency and attributes selection did not improve model performance. SMO achieved 98.25% accuracy and 0.982 F-Score versus 79.32% and 0.756, respectively, for the rule-based model.

    Conclusions

    A model using machine learning algorithms to automatically classify patients smoking status was successfully developed. This algorithm would enable automatic assessment of smoking status directly from EMRs, obviating the need to extract complete case notes and manual classification.
