How technology can change humans’ experiences and perceptions is the main research challenge that engages Arezoo Sarkheyli-Hägele, assistant professor in Computer Science, Internet of Things, Malmö University. At IOTAP, Arezoo will focus on research related to situation recognition in dynamic environments (including people) such as smart offices or smart homes.
Arezoo, what is your research interest?
I am enjoying working on cognitive and intelligent systems to generate assistance systems for human users. This makes it possible to advance our situation awareness, improve our perception of the environment, and deal with inability like limited human skills or experiences. The focuses of my research are […] Continue reading
The IOTAP Research center was evaluated by external reviewers during spring 2018. The result from the reviewers showed that the research center received the rating Excellent or Very Good for the clear majority of the criteria that were evaluated. The reviewers’ concluded that “continued operations are recommended“. Following that, the vice-chancellor of MAU decided to grant the research center IOTAP for five more years. Moreover, the seven-year project IOTAP Research Profile has been half-time evaluated by the KK Foundation during spring 2018. The KK Foundation states that “… the research profile “Internet of Things and People” is very […] Continue reading

There is little doubt that the internet has changed the world. The next step in the revolution is that our things are connected with each other. In a couple of years, it’s expected that 100 billion devices will be connected to the internet, which can affect humanity more than the internet itself, says Paul Davidsson. His research team looks at the link between technology and human and how new technologies affect our behavior.
In the latest episode of the interview series Fjärde uppgiften, Paul Davidsson, director of the Internet of Things and People research center, is interviewed. In the […] Continue reading
Banafsheh Hajinasab defended successfully her PhD thesis: A Dynamic Approach to Multi Agent Based Simulation in Urban Transportation Planning (link to thesis page in MUEP) June 15 at Malmö University. Opponent was Professor Kay Axhausen, ETH Zürich.
In the dissertation, Banafsheh Hajinasab presented a simulation model that, with good accuracy, can predict our daily commuting and traveling.
“My model is based on open data which is available online and therefore can be automatically updated”, says Banafsheh Hajinasab.
Open data may in this case refer to changes in bus traffic or higher prices, […] Continue reading

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
In the latest episode of the podcast “Forskaren och jag”, Paul Davidsson, director of the Internet of Things and People research center, is interviewed.
Online gadgets, smart things or the Internet of Things. Dear child has many names. But are there only advantages that people are becoming increasingly dependent on gadgets that require connection? According to Professor Paul Davidsson, there are both disadvantages and opportunities with this development. Hear his thoughts about the future, which to some extent is already here.

The challenge of making sense of big data. That is one of the research challenges that engages Blerim Emruli, postdoc in computer science, Malmö University. At IOTAP, Emruli will focus on understanding how to explore and model the data but also investigate the flexibility and adaptability of the delivered solutions.
Blerim, which are your research interests?
My research interest is in the field of artificial intelligence that is a prominent branch of computer science, which enables devices, computers and machines to unleash intelligent behaviour.
Helene Hellmark Knutsson, Minister of Higher Education and Research, visited Malmö University together with the chairman of Malmö City Council, Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh and Vice Chancellor of Malmö University, Kerstin Tham. In the IOTAP research lab, they learned how researchers are working on Internet of Things. They also had an opportunity to learn more about the Pelars platform, which was demonstrated by PhD student David Cuartielles. The Pelars platform can be used to study how teachers understand how students learn math and technology.
