The Personification of Big Data

Phillip Douglas Stevenson, Christopher Andrew Mattson
2019 Proceedings of the International Conference on Engineering Design  
Realistic individual personas are filtered from this population for use in product development.  ...  A computational persona generator is introduced that creates a population of personas that mirrors a real population in terms of size and statistics.  ...  It shows that the large-group data is personified by first creating a persona population of sample size y, where y is sufficiently large to represent actual large-group data from real people.  ...

Personal Delegation by Persona Creation

Coimbatore S. Chandersekaran, William R. Simpson
2011 Computer Technology and Application  
A persona is a special category of user that embodies only delegated privileges, and which is explicitly assumed only after the "real" human user taking on that persona explicitly chooses it.  ...  This paper describes the persona delegation framework in the context of a large enclave-based architecture currently being implemented by a major enterprise.  ...  Finally, the delegate persona (user n) is populated with access groups from the delegation and the agent's attributes. The delegate persona is persistent and appears in the DIT as any other user.  ...

Creating Rich and Representative Personas by Discovering Affordances

Mostafa Mesgari, Chitu Okoli, Ana Ortiz de Guinea
2018 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
This study illustrates the practical value of the proposed methodology by empirically creating personas based on real user data.  ...  To gain the advantages of both approaches, this article suggests a mixed qualitative-quantitative approach to create user personas based on the patterns of the affordances they actualize rather than merely  ...  The main advantage of quantitative methods is to build personas based on information about large numbers of users believed to be representative of the user target population [2] .  ...

Collaboration personas

Tara Matthews, Steve Whittaker, Thomas Moran, Sandra Yuen
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 annual conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '11  
Collaboration personas differ from individual personas in having (1) multiple, inter-related individuals playing specific roles; (2) a focus on collective goals and elaboration of individual goals that  ...  We contrast collaboration personas with other design approaches and provide examples of how they can be used to design new collaborative tools that better meet the needs of typical groups.  ...  Briefly, personas are created from data collected among user populations relevant to the design problem [ 7, 8,  21] .  ...

User Profiles and Personas in Consumer Health Technologies

Cynthia LeRouge, Jiao Ma
2010 2010 43rd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
User profiles and personas can be used to help the development team to mentally visualize and communicate how intended users of CHT's will interact with the proposed design in a meaningful way.  ...  We use an action research approach to call attention to important health related characteristics for CHT user profiles and personas, provide persona and profile artifacts for chronic diabetics, and illustrate  ...  User personas draw from these characteristics to create a more fully developed characterization of the targeted user group(s).  ...

Collaborative design for young children with autism: Design tools and a user study

D. Scott McCrickard, Troy D. Abel, Angela Scarpa, Yao Wang, Shuo Niu
2015 2015 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS)  
Design activities leveraging scenarios and personas are suggested that leverage the card set in the creation of technology interfaces.  ...  The focus of this effort was in developing techniques to help novice designers create technology interfaces to support anger management in young people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  ...  Expanding the card set could draw from more proven anger management techniques from the Scarpa work, or from work by others in similar domains, or from hypothesized approaches that researchers surmise  ...
