Solid, 2006-2009

Project Manager

The goal of the Solid project was to create concrete mechanisms for making information and communication technology (ICT) more secure and robust. In particular, the project emphasized that neither security nor robustness is achieved as a result of single mechanisms. Rather, this is realized as a result of whole chains of mechanisms concerning everything from user experience to information handling algorithms. With as a backdrop, the project focused on improving weak links for creating secure and robust solutions for personal information- based ICT services.

Solid was awarded SEK 3.600.000 in funding from VINNOVA. TeliaSonera, Arenan for Digitala Tjanster i Stockholm, Kenet Works, Asimus, Superlocal, and Wyatt Media Group participated and co-financed the project.

ADAPT, 2001-2004

Project Manager, Technical work with programming and design

The ADAPT project investigated automatic adaptation of services in open systems (e.g. the World Wide Web) as a means to meeting the challenges that diverse user groups and sets of devices pose to service providers. The project treated general aspects of automatic adaptation in open systems to some degree, but the emphasis was placed on two areas: adapting towards preferences of users and adapting towards properties of devices.

SAITS, 2002-2005

Project Manager, Analysis and design

The SAITS project investigated the meaning and significance of the term privacy in emerging IT environments, how the technological development creates privacy risks as well as possibilities to protect and enhance privacy, and how regulations can control how different actors behaves in IT environments. The project involved three partners with expertise in computer science, law, and civil rights, as well as an active reference group consisting of over a dozen participants representing industry and government organizations. The direct results of the SAITS project were in the form of reports and public seminars and workshops that described privacy from a number of viewpoints. During its three years the project produced three workshops, 15 seminars, and more than 60 professional articles (two thirds in daily press).

AWARE, 2003-2004

Project Manager, Analysis and design

In collaboration with SUN Microsystems, we conducted two studies of the relationship between information and communication technology use and the user context. The studies revealed that users of information and communication technologies are very much aware of privacy issues related to these technologies. While this is well in line with literature on the topic, the results also indicate a width in interpreting privacy that is rarely acknowledged in the current discourse.

TAP, 2001-2004

Technical work with programming and design

The TAP project makes agent technology and other forms of autonomous software accessible to the public through live applications. The first live case is trading agents, which represents assistant software. The second live case is controlling the spread of communicable infectious diseases, which represents agent-based social simulation. In a similar manner, future live cases will capture portions of established technologies in this area of research, always with an eye on practical employment.

thinkWearable, 2002-2003

Analysis and design, Technical work with programming and design

The thinkWearable project served two purposes: first, it was a graduate course for graduate students at the Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. Second, it was a prototype for a bridge between the academic research world and industry. As such it sought to combine findings in wearable and ubiquitous computing with innovative industrial design and business models in order to face future challenges of mobile systems.

FEEL, 2001-2002

Technical work with programming and design

The main objective of the FEEL project is to deal with the problem of the intrusiveness of today's mobile technology and how work in local environments can be enhanced by introducing the idea of non-intrusive services realised partly by disappearing computer environments.

sView, 1999-2002

Supervising students, Technical work with programming and design of the sView framework

The sView project aims at providing a framework for service-user interaction. Compared to traditional techniques for mediation of service-user interaction (e.g. the WWW), sView brings support for continuous interaction sessions, use of multiple types of devices, network independence, and personalization.

FamilyLink, 2000

Technical work with programming and design

The HUMLE laboratory was engaged in a joint research project with Ericsson Research that focused on information technologies for the family. The project concerned communication, sharing of common information, and other family based services, on both a conceptual and a technical level.

KIMSAC, 1997-1998

Technical work with programming and design of an autonomous agent for automatic adaptation of web kiosk content

KIMSAC was a three year long EU ACTS sponsored project aiming at enhancing the usability of kiosk-based information services through the application of, among others, autonomous agent technologies.

ConCall, 1998

Technical work with programming and design of a framework for connecting a number of electronic services to a common user interface

ConCall is an agent-based system that implements a design for web-based, user adaptive information services supported by human expert editors.
