  1. 1. DIFFERENTIAL OUTCOME TRAINING AND HUMANOID ROBOT FEEDBACK ON A VISUOSPATIAL GAMIFIED TASK: An experimental study investigating learning, affective social engagement cues and cognitive learning strategies

    University essay from Institutionen för tillämpad informationsteknologi

    Author : Alva Markelius; Sofia Sjöberg; [2023-02-01]
    Keywords : Human-robot interaction; gamified memory task; dementia; differential outcome theory; Furhat; engagement; digitalised treatments; robot assistance;

    Abstract : By combining Differential Outcome Training (DOT), the usage of unique stimulus-response pairings, and feedback from a humanoid simulated robot (SDK) this study aims to improve learning performance of subjects on a visuospatial gamified memory task. This is achieved by using the SDK as an interface for an algorithm that provides audiovisual, reinforcing feedback promoting engangement in a new dyadic setup for a gamified task. READ MORE

  2. 2. TRUST ONLINE: Visual Cues for Trustworthy News

  3. 3. OPTIMISATION AND UNDERSTANDING OF TECHNOLOGICAL ARTEFACTS An Experimental Study Investigating the Role of Causal Cognition and Social Learning in Micro-society Paradigms

    University essay from Institutionen för tillämpad informationsteknologi

    Author : Albin Högberg; Eva Iliefski-Janols; [2023-02-01]
    Keywords : Cumulative Technological Culture; Cognitive Niche Hypothesis; Cultural Niche Hypothesis; Social Learning; Causal Cognition; Micro-society Paradigms;

    Abstract : Cumulative technological culture - how humans can build upon and improve the technology and tools of earlier generations - has been regarded as a main contributing factor for Homo sapiens' success as a species. In this study we investigate the role of causal cognition and social learning in the optimisation of technological artefacts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Do Football Players Give Female Coaches the Red Card?

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : Erica Froste Myrin; Sigrid Holmgren; [2023]
    Keywords : gender bias; sport; leadership; football; evaluation;

    Abstract : In Swedish elite football, the skewed gender distribution between coaches is conspicuous, and this thesis aims to investigate one channel as to why there are so few female coaches in this environment. Previous research has found that students evaluate female teachers more critically than male teachers, even in components that they cannot control; might this be the case in Swedish elite football as well? We have conducted a framed field experiment on the teams in the highest football division for players 19 years or under in Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wrist Angle Estimation Using Two Wearable Inertial Measurement Units

    University essay from KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem

    Author : Arvin Razavi; [2023]
    Keywords : IMU wrist angle estimation; Wrist absolute angle; IMU-based human motion capture; orientation filter; Complementary filter; Kalman filter; IMU handledsvinkeluppskattning; handleds absolutvinkel; IMU-baserad mänsklig rörelsefångst; orienteringsfilter; komplementfilter; Kalman-filter;

    Abstract : Hand-intensive work is closely related to the prevalence of upper body and hand/wrist work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) in office work, manufacturing, service industries, as well as the healthcare industry. Some risk factors include vibrations, forceful exertions, heavy manual handling, repetitive motions, and prolonged nonneutral wrist postures. READ MORE
