Fair Data: Responsible use of personal data

We generate more personal data than ever before. But because of privacy concerns, we only reluctantly share it. Companies and public organizations on the other hand are very interested in using this data to provide better services and products. This conflict between privacy and opportunity is what the Fair Data project investigates. Continue reading

Making IoT data actionable

IoT devices create and deliver massive amounts of data that humans are ill-equipped to deal with. What is needed is highly contextualized and personalized information. DocFactory IoT is a platform that makes the data from IoT devices actionable. Continue reading

Share data for the common good

The Citizen Science application from Sony Mobile enables the users to contribute to research projects, allowing them to act as remote sensors for all types of data as they go through their daily life. Together with researchers, users can share their data by participating in projects together with scientists and industry that can improve society. Continue reading

Context-aware gaming

Making public transport more attractive is an important step to reduce carbon emissions caused by travel. The smartphone game Bus Runner, which is based on beacon technology and open data, is an attempt to make riding the bus more attractive by turning it into a game. Continue reading

Rapid prototyping for the smart home

Smart home products and services are often developed using proprietary and closed platforms. This of course offers stable and secure environments, but can at the same time be a roadblock for rapid prototyping and collaborative creativity. One way of going around the issue is to develop on top of existing platforms and providing a secondary mechanism (based on open standards) for defining and executing services in the smart home. Continue reading

Smart learning analytics

Collaborative learning activities are an essential part of education and are part of many teaching approaches including problem-based learning and project-based learning. However, in open-ended collaborative small group work, evidence on the effectiveness of using these learning activities are hard to find. The PELARS project explores how multimodal learning analytics can generate information about what happens when students are engaged in collaborative, project-based learning activities. Continue reading

Dynamic ”best before” dates

It is estimated that a third of all food in the EU is discarded. A major reason for this is the static ”best before” date that both consumers and actors in the food supply chain use when accepting or rejecting a product. To address this, the DynahMat project has developed a concept that enables dynamic shelf-life prediction. Continue reading

IoT Conference in Lund Sep (7–8)

The Internet of Things conference in Lund, Sweden, aims to provide a clear picture of the Internet of Things (IoT) landscape—where we are now and where we are heading. IoT is a broad concept that includes everything from protocols, hardware and software to health, wearable devices and design. The conference tries to cover all aspects of IoT, not only focus on a single category. The conference is run as a nonprofit event aiming to increase the awareness of current trends and the future of the industry. Date and location: September 7–8, Lund, Sweden. Continue reading

What AI can do for video games (and vice versa) | Julian Togelius

Video games are great testbeds for developing artificial intelligence (AI), and AI could help game developers create new games. In this keynote presentation from the Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS) workshop at Malmö University, Julian Togelius talks about how developing AI and games should go hand in hand—for mutual benefit. Continue reading
