Data-Driven Systems: New graduate school strengthens cooperation between industry and Malmö University

The industrial graduate school Data-Driven Systems is awarded about SEK 11 million by the Knowledge Foundation. The aim is to increase the research competence in the companies that are involved, but also to strengthen cooperation between academia and industry.

“Rather than doing traditional contract research, this is about co-production in that academia and industry together create new knowledge,” says Paul Davidsson, professor of computer science and director of the Internet of Things and People research center at Malmö University.

Work and studies in parallel

The graduate school has an overall budget of about SEK 30 million, it runs for three […] Continue reading

Workshop invitation | A Smart Health Check Up: Current State and Potential Futures

Making IoT data actionable

IoT devices create and deliver massive amounts of data that humans are ill-equipped to deal with. What is needed is highly contextualized and personalized information. DocFactory IoT is a platform that makes the data from IoT devices actionable. Continue reading

Seminar invitation: Visions for Swedish Smart Cities

This is an invitation to participate in a seminar on smart cities. The seminar will focus on how Internet of Things-based technologies can play a role in sustainable urban development. The seminar starts with presentations by representatives from Digital Malmö and from the regional industry. The presentations are followed by discussions. Continue reading

Share data for the common good

The Citizen Science application from Sony Mobile enables the users to contribute to research projects, allowing them to act as remote sensors for all types of data as they go through their daily life. Together with researchers, users can share their data by participating in projects together with scientists and industry that can improve society. Continue reading

Context-aware gaming

Making public transport more attractive is an important step to reduce carbon emissions caused by travel. The smartphone game Bus Runner, which is based on beacon technology and open data, is an attempt to make riding the bus more attractive by turning it into a game. Continue reading

Rapid prototyping for the smart home

Smart home products and services are often developed using proprietary and closed platforms. This of course offers stable and secure environments, but can at the same time be a roadblock for rapid prototyping and collaborative creativity. One way of going around the issue is to develop on top of existing platforms and providing a secondary mechanism (based on open standards) for defining and executing services in the smart home. Continue reading

Smart learning analytics

Collaborative learning activities are an essential part of education and are part of many teaching approaches including problem-based learning and project-based learning. However, in open-ended collaborative small group work, evidence on the effectiveness of using these learning activities are hard to find. The PELARS project explores how multimodal learning analytics can generate information about what happens when students are engaged in collaborative, project-based learning activities.
