Designing Ubiquitous Information Environments: by Carsten Sørensen, Youngjin Yoo (auth.), Carsten Sørensen,

By Carsten Sørensen, Youngjin Yoo (auth.), Carsten Sørensen, Youngjin Yoo, Kalle Lyytinen, Janice I. DeGross (eds.)

The fast advancements in cellular and instant verbal exchange applied sciences and the continued miniaturization of computing units makes ubiquitous details environments extra of a technical fact than a far off imaginative and prescient. Ubiquituous computing because the subsequent wave of organizational computing bargains new chances and possibilities for firms to enhance their productiveness and effectiveness. notwithstanding, the emergence of ubiquitous info environments not just signs possibilities, but in addition essentially demanding situations some of the conventional assumptions approximately agencies, administration, computing, communique and work.

The ubiquitous info environments have an effect on all degrees of association actions. at present there are many actions in designing and enforcing ubiquitous info environments. The 7 elements of this ebook, and the 31 chapters, disguise a number of matters concerning the layout and implementation of ubiquitous info environments. The publication covers previous and conventional matters in mild of rising ubiquitous details environments in addition to novel social and technical problems.

The publication brings in diversified views on ubiquitous details environments, from computer-supported collaborative paintings, institutional viewpoint, diffusion of innovation, administration, sociology, person cognition, and software program engineering. It additionally covers a number of applied sciences that make up ubiquitous details environments together with RFID, instant grid, GPS, cell phones, and instant neighborhood zone community. The papers hide many contexts of ubiquitous computing together with own use, library, car, healthcare, police, expert wisdom paintings, distant diagnostics of machines, and advertising, testifying to the wide variety of strength of ubiquitous details environments.

This e-book constructed as a collective made from the foreign Federation for info Processing (IFIP) operating staff 8.2, a operating crew devoted to the examine of the interplay of knowledge platforms and the association. The e-book proceeds from the IFIP operating convention at the layout of Ubiquitous info Environments held in Cleveland, Ohio, in August 2005.

This definition includes mobile phones, portable digital assistants, and integrated wireless enterprise solutions like the popular handheld BlackBerry™. 3 RESEARCH RESULTS Among our focus group participants, voice communication clearly dominates the usage profile, followed by data services like e-mail, Web browsing, and text messaging. Other informational and transactional services were only moderately used on a regular basis. The process of experiencing mobile technology from a user's perspective is depicted in Figure 1, which shows the main themes and concepts that emerged from our data and the relationships that indicate significant interactions between them.

It allows them to do things they couldn't do before. It enables them to do things more efficiently and effectively than in the past. But as people are using their newly acquired, technology-enabled competencies to perform new tasks or try to perforai tasks better, they soon experience a new sense of incompetence. Seemingly simple services turn out to be hard to use and newly gained efficiencies tend to be limited in scope and actually cause inefficiency at some higher level. The idea that a newly obtained competence lowers another, directly related competence or makes users experience incompetence, whether real or just perceived, emerged from our data in several different contexts.

He has published numerous articles and case studies on a variety of design and identity topics. He has also taught design courses and lectured on design at Stanford University, Harvard, MIT, and RIT, and was recently named Rochester Institute of Technology 2004 Distinguished Alumni of the Year. He currently serves on the Board of Directors and Advisory Board for the Design Management Institute. html. A. Weiser's original discussion of the emerging age of ubiquitous computing was formulated largely in technological terms, as an extrapolation of continuing trends in the design and capabilities of computer hardware, software, and infrastructure.
