Sensor-based recognition of engagement during work and learning activities

Di Lascio, Elena ; Santini, Silvia (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021INFO011.

Personal computing systems like e.g., laptop, smartphone, and smartwatches are nowadays ubiquitous in people's everyday life. People use such systems not only for communicating or searching for information, but also as digital companions, able to track and support their daily activities such as sleep, food intake, physical exercise and even work. Sensors embedded in personal computing systems...

Does being assigned to a low school track negatively affect psychological adjustment?

Müller, Christoph Michael ; Hofmann, Verena

In: School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2016, vol. 27, p. 95-115

Previous research suggests that the 1st year in secondary school for some students goes hand in hand with an increase in adjustment difficulties. One factor that might influence this process on an individual, compositional, and institutional level is the academic track a student attends. It was hypothesized that being assigned to a lowqualifying track predicts a stronger increase in...

Leukocyte tracking database, a collection of immune cell tracks from intravital 2-photon microscopy videos

Pizzagalli, Diego Ulisse ; Farsakoglu, Yagmur ; Palomino-Segura, Miguel ; Palladino, Elisa ; Sintes, Jordi ; Marangoni, Francesco ; Mempel, Thorsten R. ; Koh, Wan Hon ; Murooka, Thomas T. ; Thelen, Flavian ; Stein, Jens V. ; Pozzi, Giuseppe ; Marcus Thelen ; Krause, Rolf ; Gonzalez, Santiago Fernandez

Recent advances in intravital video microscopy have allowed the visualization of leukocyte behavior in vivo, revealing unprecedented spatiotemporal dynamics of immune cell interaction. However, state-of-the-art software and methods for automatically measuring cell migration exhibit limitations in tracking the position of leukocytes over time. Challenges arise both from the complex migration...

Routine workers in an increasingly automated world of work : Evidence from Switzerland

Kurer, Thomas

In:, 2019, vol. 1, no. 2, p. Article: 1.2

This paper explores the distributional consequences of technological change on midskilled routine workers in Switzerland in three steps: (1) The first part studies aggregate trends in the labor market and confirms the pattern of an eroding middle:The disadvantages of technological progress are concentrated on routine workers whose share in the labor force has drastically declined over time....

Introducing otree_tools : A powerful package to provide process data for attention, multitasking behavior and effort through tracking focus

Chapkovski, Philipp ; Zihlmann, Christian

In: Journal of behavioral and experimental finance, 2019, vol. 23, p. 75-83

With the advent of online subject pools, conducting experiments outside thelaboratory has become more popular among the scientific community. Unlike the lab, online and field environments tend to be accompanied by a loss of control. In this article we introduce otree_tools, a concise yet powerful add-on for oTree (Chen et al., 2016).otree_tools provides novel ways by which to measure...
