The emergence of new connected devices has opened up new opportunities and allowed to imagine concepts that bring computer sciences and social sciences closer together. In particular, today's increasingly sophisticated miniature sensors allow to track and understand human activities and behavior with a great precision. Taking different approaches and perspectives, we use in this paper smartwatches and smartglasses to explore these behaviors and show that these objects, considered by many as gadgets, have an important role to play in understanding the lives of individuals. The main objective of this work is to introduce two new scales of activity detection, which lacks a formal and consistent definition in the literature. First, we propose a model that precisely detects and interprets movements made by a person wearing smart devices. Then, we use this model to show different interactions between those micro-activities and bigger chunks of behaviors we call macro-activities. Using a new concept based on 3D visualization, we finally show that combining those two scales and using a limited dataset, it is possible to distinguish between different individuals when they are performing very similar activities. The findings of this study lead the way to enhanced user profiling. [less ▲]

Even though the benefits of usability have widely been proven, it seems that development-oriented companies face many difficulties to introduce usability practices into their defined development processes. This paper describes the overall methodology deployed as an attempt to achieve a closer integration of usability practices in the software development process. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) is used as a basis for this integration. Providing a precise framework composed of models and transformations, it allows to track usability problems and to highlight where exactly they occur in the development process. We will thus be able to link every step of the process to specific ergonomic inputs and to study their consequences on the usability of the generated system. Because MDE will only be used as a way among others to investigate some hypotheses on usability and User-Centered Design (UCD) in general, our results are expected to provide valuable and generic information on usability and UCD processes.

. A linguistic analysis of deontic paradoxes can be used to further develop deontic logic. In this paper we provide a Beth-Reichenbach semantics to analyze deontic paradoxes, and we illustrate it on the single agent decision problem of the miners scenario. We also introduce extensions with reactive arrows and actions, which can be used to give a linguistic interpretation of multi-agent dialogues. [less ▲]

Background and aims: Binge-watching (i.e., seeing multiple episodes of the same TV series in a row) now constitutes a widespread phenomenon. However, little is known about the psychological factors underlying this behavior, as reflected by the paucity of available studies, most merely focusing on its potential harmfulness by applying the classic criteria used for other addictive disorders without exploring the uniqueness of binge-watching. The present study thus aimed to take the opposite approach as a first step toward a genuine understanding of binge-watching behaviors through a qualitative analysis of the phenomenological characteristics of TV series watching. Methods: A focus group of regular TV series viewers (N=7) was established to explore a wide range of aspects related to TV series watching (e.g., motives, viewing practices, related behaviors). Results: A content analysis identified bingewatching features across three dimensions: TV series watching motivations, TV series watching engagement, and structural characteristics of TV shows. Most participants acknowledged that TV series watching can become addictive, but they all agreed having trouble recognizing themselves as truly being an “addict.” Although obvious connections could be established with substance addiction criteria and symptoms, such parallelism appeared to be insufficient, as several distinctive facets emerged (e.g., positive view, transient overinvolvement, context dependency, low everyday life impact). Discussion and conclusions: Research should go beyond the classic biomedical and psychological models of addictive behaviors to account for binge-watching in order to explore its specificities and generate first steps toward an adequate theoretical rationale for these emerging problematic behaviors.

This report presents the application of a new set of socioeconomic indexes (SEIs) of occupations developed using the American Community Survey (ACS). In these analyses, the new SEIs are used to characterize the socioeconomic standings of household heads and spouses associated with samples of children age 6-18 years. These children were extracted from two independent sources: the pooled 2000-2005 October Current Population Survey (CPS) and the 2005 ACS. We compared the new measures with the 1990-based measures from Hauser and Warren (1997) by performing correlation and regression analyses on the sample data to examine the relationships among three status-attainment variables -- education, occupation and income. Since the development of Duncan’s SEI (1961) for measuring the occupational attainment of individuals, subsequent measures have been updated not only to improve the validity of the measure but also to accommodate changes in the way occupation has been measured and classified. SEIs provide researchers with succinct and reliable measures for summarizing individuals’ or households’ positions in the socioeconomic hierarchy. With growing complexity and details in the new occupation classification system, many categories in the 2000 Census occupation codes, for example, cannot find their counterparts in the previous listings and thus the SEI is due for another update. The analyses presented in this report serve as a “test-drive” for the new SEIs. The results from our preliminary analyses indicate that despite the fact that the two pairs of occupational measures are not in the exact same metric, they behave very similarly in terms of their dependence on educational attainment, explanatory power on various earning and income measures and differentials across gender and race-ethnicity groups.
