RESTalk : a visual and textual DSL for modelling RESTful conversations

Ivanchikj, Ana ; Pautasso, Cesare (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021INFO001.

Digitalization is all around us, even more so in pandemic times where substantial part of our lives has been moved online. One of the key enablers of digitalization are the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) which enable the communication and exchange of data between different systems. They abstract from the implementation details of the underlying systems and allow for the monetization...

A large scale, app-based behaviour change experiment persuading sustainable mobility patterns : methods, results and lessons learnt

Cellina, Francesca ; Bucher, Dominik ; Mangili, Francesca ; Veiga Simão, José ; Rudel, Roman ; Raubal, Martin

In: Sustainability, 2019, vol. 11, no. 9, p. 2674

The present urban transportation system, mostly tailored for cars, has long shown its limitations. In many urban areas, public transportation and soft mobility would be able to effectively satisfy many travel needs. However, they tend to be neglected, due to a deep-rooted car dependency. How can we encourage people to make sustainable mobility choices, reducing car use and the related CO 2...

Towards a removal of the rental value coupled with the abrogation of parallel tax deductions : what is at stake ?

Garcia Orgueira, Ivan ; Courbage, Christophe (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2019 ; TDIBM 58.

No one can question the critical role that the real estate market represents for its economy, either by its size or its particularities. In Switzerland, the current tax system requires all property owners to pay a tax on the rental value, a fictitious taxable income that is calculated according to the potential income that the landlord could have generated if he rented his property to a third...

Materiality and the construction of Intersubjectivity : human-robot interaction in typical development and the use of the Objects in ASD children

Manzi, Federico ; Iannaccone, Antonio (Dir.) ; Marchetti, Antonella (Codir.) ; Castelli, Ilaria (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

The aims of the present dissertation are to analyse, in children with typical and atypical development, the construction of the intersubjectivity through the use of objects in atypical development (ASD) and through the interaction with a humanoid robot in typical development. About the humanoid robots, the issue is to observe the possible attribution of human-like features to a robot that can...

An electroencephalographic approach to the processing of ambiguous stimuli under social influence : the role of perception, attention, emotion and metacognition

Zanesco, Julie ; Clément, Fabrice (Dir.) ; Pegna, Alan J. (Codir.) ; Maurer, Roland (Codir.) ; Krummenacher, Joseph (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Humans, as social beings, are susceptible to social influence in their judgements, beliefs and behaviours. Over the last 70 years, a great wealth of data from experimental social psychology has demonstrated that social knowledge affects the way humans perceive and interpret their environment, giving rise to cognitive, perceptual, attentional and motivational biases. Already in the 1950’s,...

Behaviour of exponential three-point coordinates at the vertices of convex polygons

Anisimov, Dmitry ; Hormann , Kai ; Schneider

In: Journal of computational and applied mathematics, 2019, vol. 350, p. 114-129

Barycentric coordinates provide a convenient way to represent a point inside a triangle as a convex combination of the triangle’s vertices and to linearly interpolate data given at these vertices. Due to their favourable properties, they are commonly applied in geometric modelling, finite element methods, computer graphics, and many other fields. In some of these applications, it is desirable...

Semantic content in titi monkey alarm call sequences

Berthet, Mélissa ; Zuberbühler, Klaus (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

The comparative approach aims to understand the uniqueness of human language and how it evolved from primitive communication systems. Black-fronted titi monkeys Callicebus nigrifrons possess two soft alarm calls: A-calls are specific to threats within the canopy while B-calls are general calls emitted to terrestrial predators but also in non-predatory contexts, while moving near the...

Hydrogeological and topographical controls on catchment dynamics and their implications for low flows

Carlier, Claire ; Brunner, Philip (Dir.) ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Periods with scarce precipitation will likely occur more frequently and last longer under changing climatic conditions, even in relatively humid regions like Switzerland. To assess the sensitivity of water resources to dry spells and to identify regions that might experience water scarcity issues, a thorough understanding of the mechanisms governing catchment dynamics in the absence of rain is...
