The Design, Development And Validation Of A Persuasive Content Generator, Sam Khataei, Michael J. Hine, Ali Arya 2021 Carleton University

The Design, Development And Validation Of A Persuasive Content Generator, Sam Khataei, Michael J. Hine, Ali Arya

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

This paper addresses the automatic generation of persuasive content to influence users’ attitude and behaviour. Our research extends current approaches by leveraging individuals’ social media profiles and activity to personalize the persuasive content. Unlike most other implemented persuasive technology, our system is generic and can be adapted to any domain where collections of electronic text are available. Using the Yale Attitude Change approach, we describe: the multi-layered Pyramid of Individualization model; the design, development, and validation of integrated software that can generate individualized persuasive content based on a user’s social media profile and activity. Results indicate the proposed system ...

Learning Adl Daily Routines With Spatiotemporal Neural Networks, Shan Gao, Ah-Hwee Tan, Rossi Setchi

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

The activities of daily living (ADLs) refer to the activities performed by individuals on a daily basis and are the indicators of a person’s habits, lifestyle, and wellbeing. Learning an individual’s ADL daily routines has significant value in the healthcare domain. Specifically, ADL recognition and inter-ADL pattern learning problems have been studied extensively in the past couple of decades. However, discovering the patterns performed in a day and clustering them into ADL daily routines has been a relatively unexplored research area. In this paper, a self-organizing neural network model, called the Spatiotemporal ADL Adaptive Resonance Theory (STADLART), is ...


A Supporting Tool For Requirements Prioritization Process In Agile Software Development, ramdan mowad, Khaled AbdElazim Muhammad, Essam Elfakharany 2020 Faculty of Computers and Information Technology, Future University in Egypt, Cairo, Egypt

A Supporting Tool For Requirements Prioritization Process In Agile Software Development, Ramdan Mowad, Khaled Abdelazim Muhammad, Essam Elfakharany

Future Computing and Informatics Journal

Requirements engineering is a crucial phase of software engineering, and requirements prioritization is an essential stage of requirements engineering particularly in agile software development. Requirements prioritization goals at eliciting which requirements of software need to be covered in a particular release. The key point is which requirement will be selected in the next iteration and which one will be delayed to other iterations for minimizing risk during development and meeting stakeholders’ needs. There are many existing techniques for requirement prioritization, but most of these techniques do not cover continuous growth, change of requirements, and requirements dependencies. The prioritization techniques need ...

With the advent of virtualization and artificial intelligence, research on networked systems has progressed substantially. As the technology progresses, we expect a boom in not only the systems research but also in the network of systems domain. It is paramount that we understand and develop methodologies to connect and communicate among the plethora of devices and systems that exist today. One such area is mobile ad-hoc and space communication, which further complicates the task of networking due to myriad of environmental and physical conditions. Developing and testing such systems is an important step considering the large investment required to build ...


Performance Evaluation Of Classical And Quantum Communication Systems, Gayane Vardoyan 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Performance Evaluation Of Classical And Quantum Communication Systems, Gayane Vardoyan

Doctoral Dissertations

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a robust and reliable method used to transport data across a network. Many variants of TCP exist, e.g., Scalable TCP, CUBIC, and H-TCP. While some of them have been studied from empirical and theoretical perspectives, others have been less amenable to a thorough mathematical analysis. Moreover, some of the more popular variants had not been analyzed in the context of the high-speed environments for which they were designed. To address this issue, we develop a generalized modeling technique for TCP congestion control under the assumption of high bandwidth-delay product. In a separate contribution ...


Monetary Impact Of National Exchange Carrier Association Tariffs On Internet Access Cost In Rural Areas, Tim Obermier, Angela K. Hollman 2020 University of Nebraska at Kearney

Monetary Impact Of National Exchange Carrier Association Tariffs On Internet Access Cost In Rural Areas, Tim Obermier, Angela K. Hollman

Mountain Plains Journal of Business and Technology

This study examines the monetary impact of tariffs on consumer internet access via a digital subscriber line (DSL). Historically, the Communications Act of 1934 mandated that telephony services be provided to everyone, without exclusion. With the rapid emergence of the internet, the Connect America Fund was recently implemented to ensure equal access to both voice and broadband services. Since many telephony companies have emerged as internet service providers, DSL internet service is often bundled together with a landline telephone, especially in rural areas. This study examines the total cost of such bundled DSL internet service across the classes of cities ...

English Language and Literature

COVID19 caught almost every higher education institution off guard. The pandemic interrupted the teaching and learning process and required immediate implementation of emergency remote learning strategies. Teaching pedagogy turned to new ways of thinking about learning. Consequently, both academic staff and students had to adapt without warning to the challenges of teaching with advanced technology from home which was taking the world by storm. Overcoming this challenge in Egypt has been much easier for private universities in comparison to state universities because of the availability of facilities, funding, smaller cohorts and validation by partner western universities. This paper shares reflections ...

Monitoring Of Remote Hydrocarbon Wells Using Azure Internet Of Things, Derek W. Staal 2020 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Monitoring Of Remote Hydrocarbon Wells Using Azure Internet Of Things, Derek W. Staal

LSU Master's Theses

Remote monitoring of hydrocarbon wells is a tedious and meticulously thought out task performed to create a cyber-physical bridge between the asset and the owner. There are many systems and techniques on the market that offer this solution but due to their lack of interoperability and/or decentralized architecture they begin to fall apart when remote assets become farther away from the client. This results in extreme latency and thus poor decision making. Microsoft's Azure IoT Edge was the focus of this writing. Coupled with off-the-shelf hardware, Azure's IoT Edge services were integrated with an existing unit simulating ...


Network Effects In Action, Christopher S. Yoo 2020 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Network Effects In Action, Christopher S. Yoo

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

This Chapter begins by examining and exploring the theoretical and empirical limits of the possible bases of network effects, paying particular attention to the most commonly cited framework known as Metcalfe’s Law. It continues by exploring the concept of network externalities, defined as the positive external consumption benefits that the decision to join a network creates for the other members of the network, which is more ambiguous than commonly realized. It then reviews the structural factors needed for models based on network effects to have anticompetitive effects and identifies other factors that can dissipate those effects. Finally, it identifies ...
