Speaker: Dr. Nelly Condori Fernandez, VU University Amsterdam
Titolo: Sustainability and service quality assurance in context-aware software systems
Quando: Lunedi 10 Ottobre ore 11,30
Dove: Sala Consiglio, VII Piano, Dipartimento di Informatica
Context-aware computing and associated technologies are becoming part of daily life. In fact, context-aware computing is considered to be a game-changing opportunity for enterprises to improve both productivity and profits. However, this positive economic growth will also bring a number of issues related to social sustainability (e.g. perceived enjoyment).
Given that evidence has corroborated that feelings and emotions dictate to a large extent our actions and decisions, sustainability of context aware systems is approached from the perspective of one of its ingredients, namely social acceptance. In this talk, first I will present a software sustainability model. Then I will introduce the idea of exploiting the emotional information as a key element in Quality of Service (QoS) assurance frameworks, by adjusting service quality levels that contribute to socio-technical sustainability at run-time. The idea builds on the strength of recent technological advances in emotion measurement tools, non-obtrusive and ubiquitous monitoring technology.
