Gerontechnological paradigms and their ethical dimensions

R. Pieper
2002 Gerontechnology  
The initial study examined if older adults encounter difficulty using real world telephone menu systems and to gather data on menu usability. Six real world telephone menu systems were examined.  ...  Data from 196 subjects indicated age differences in performance, especially for complex problems. However, there was no effect of speech rate.  ...  The data collected are automatically translated into information and delivered via the web to one or more sites.  ...

Use of the Multi-Agent Paradigm in Sustainable Tourism

Martina Husáková
2018 Czech Journal of Tourism: Journal of Masaryk University  
Complex systems are characterised by a huge amount of components, which are highly linked with each other.  ...  The complex systems can be investigated with various bottom-up and top-down approaches.  ...  It can be said that this model is non-traditional, because it connects the multi-agent paradigm, the object oriented Petri nets and tourism.  ...

Programming iSpaces — A Tale of Two Paradigms [chapter]

V Callaghan, M Colley, H Hagras, J Chin, F Doctor, G Clarke
2006 Computer Communications and Networks  
The first approach is based on the use of embedded autonomous agents which discretely sense the user's actions in the environment and, in a life-long learning mode, autonomously "programs" the iSpace to  ...  The second approach is based on the application of programming-by-example techniques (PBE) in which the system enters a discrete teaching phase in which the user "programs" the iSpace by demonstrating  ...  Type of data: Are the data provided discrete-valued, real-valued, and complex-Another important distinction in learning agents is whether the learning is done online or offline.  ...

The Fog Computing Paradigm: Scenarios and Security Issues

Ivan Stojmenovic, Sheng Wen
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems  
Fog Computing is a paradigm that extends Cloud computing and services to the edge of the network. Similar to Cloud, Fog provides data, compute, storage, and application services to end-users.  ...  As an example, we study a typical attack, man-in-the-middle attack, for the discussion of security in Fog computing.  ...  The Fog paradigm is well positioned for real time big data analytics, supports densely distributed data collection points, and provides advantages in entertainment, advertising, personal computing and  ...

Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis Methods in the Mobile Cloud Offloading Paradigm

Hind Bangui, Mouzhi Ge, Barbora Buhnova, Said Rakrak, Said Raghay, Tomas Pitner
2017 Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks  
The offloading process is one of the techniques used in MCC to enhance the capabilities of mobile devices by moving mobile data and computation-intensive operations to cloud platforms.  ...  However, as there are a variety of platforms and technologies in mobile cloud computing, it is still challenging for the offloading process to reach a satisfactory quality of service from the perspective  ...  Yet, in the case of mobile clients without previous experience, MCDA methods (especially those focusing on studying uncertain and imprecise information in real systems) can hardly solve the studied problem  ...
