Art and collectibles markets tend to involve lower liquidity and higher fees than public equity markets. Distributed ledger technology can tokenize artworks and collectibles, so that claims to these assets can be exchanged digitally without intermediaries. Tokenization offers investors access to a global market plus a digitized paper trail, as well as new options for the fractional ownership of artworks, art-collateralized loans, and yield-bearing art assets. The main challenge for tokenization researchers and platform developers is to simultaneously satisfy regulators’ demands for transparency and auditability as well as art investors’ demands for privacy. New technological solutions are required that enable market participants to disclose the absolute minimum amount of information that is required by regulators. We explore new concepts from distributed ledger technology, cryptography, and digital identity management that can help address this challenge. [less ▲]

Germany leads Europe in producing and publishing STEM scholarship. We consider how Germany’s higher education prepares its STEM workforce with a focus on ways gender inequality persists in undergraduate engineering education. In this chapter, we analyse panel data from the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW) to examine the interests, perceptions, and choices of women who ultimately decide not to study engineering. We identify reasons why women may choose not to pursue engineering education and offer implications for recruiting women into engineering. Finally, we highlight promising policies and practices to attract women into STEM. [less ▲]

Our research report employs the D4R data and combines it with several other sources to study one of the multiple aspects of integration of refugees, namely the mobility of refugees across provinces in Turkey. In particular, we employ a standard gravity model to empirically estimate a series of determinants of refugee movements. These include the standard determinants such as province characteristics, distances across provinces, levels of income, network effects as well as some refugee-specific determinants such as the presence of refugee camps and the intensity of phone call interaction among refugees. Importantly, we explore the effect of certain categories of news events, notably protests, violence, and asylum grants. Considering news as an indicator of policy implemented at the provincial level, we gain a better understanding as to how policy can facilitate refugee mobility and thus enhance integration. To benchmark our findings, we estimate the same model for the mobility of individuals with a non-refugee status. [less ▲]

Location-based gaming (LBG) apps present many challenges to the design process. They have very different requirements compared to games that are aspatial in nature. They take place in the wild and this brings unique challenges to the practicalities of their design. There is a need to balance the core game play with the spatial requirements of location-aware technologies as well as considering the overall theme and objectives of the game together with the motivations and behaviours of players. We reflect upon this balancing act and explore an approach to creative paper prototyping through the medium of board games to co-design LBG requirements. We examine two case studies of location-based games with different goals. The first case study discusses the CrossCult Pilot 4 app built to trigger reflection on historical stories through thoughtful play. Whilst the second case study uses the City Conquerer app designed and played in Suzhou, China with a view to exploring notions of territoriality. The paper considers how spatial, social and interaction metaphors are used to simulate location-based games in a board game and discusses the lessons learned when transforming the paper game into a digital prototype. It forms part of a thinking by doing approach. By comparing the board games to the technical counterparts, we consider how effective are the features and activities implemented in the technology prototypes. We propose a set of 11 design constraints that developers must be mindful of when transitioning from paper to digital prototypes. [less ▲]

With the 2002 introduction of the euro as a common currency in Europe,the possibility has emerged to assess international mobility using this new tracer, given that every coin bears a specific national side. Using a simple two-country framework, four dynamic modeling strategies were designed in order to simulate the diffusion of coins and to understand how this diffusion is affected by population size, mobility rates and coin exchange processes. Methodological implications are raised with respect to aggregation, synchronicity and stochasticity issues. Although each model converges to an equilibrium, the time to reach this end stage and the level of coin mixing in each country strongly varies with the modeling strategy. Calibration is undertaken with French data, using mobility rates as adjustment variables. The experiment shows that convergence to a perfect mix of coins can only be obtained if reciprocal exchanges are modeled, with a time horizon around 2064 - while non-reciprocal models indicate an imperfect mix converging in the year 2020 at the latest.

A major part of the commercial Internet is moving towards a cloud paradigm. This phenomenon has a drastic impact on the organizational structures of enterprises and introduces new challenges that must be properly addressed to avoid major setbacks. One such challenge is that of cloud provider viability, that is, the reasonable certainty that the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) will not go out of business, either by filing for bankruptcy or by simply shutting down operations, thus leaving its customers stranded without an infrastructure and, depending on the type of cloud service used, even without their applications or data. This article attempts to address the issue of cloud provider viability, proposing some ways of mitigating the problem both from a technical and from a legal perspective. [less ▲]

The focus of our research is to support designers in fostering a more sustainable behaviour of consumers by creating meaning in products and services. The paper describes the results of a literature study into the process of meaning making and the mechanisms through which meaning affects consumer behaviour. Meaning is defined as a mental representation of possible relationships. An initial model, the Meaning-Behaviour Model, is presented, integrating the mechanisms found in literature. Five possible interventions, derived from the model, show how designers can use meaning as a lever to foster enduring behavioural change. The paper contributes to the discussion of introducing meaning through design by exploring the link between meaning and behaviour. [less ▲]

Fluid-flow around mechanical structures can sometimes lead to catastrophic failures. Improved modelling of fluid/structure interaction is required for safety and mechanical considerations. In this contribution, concepts for modelling the interaction of structures and fluids are presented. Starting from excitation mechanisms and associated classifications, various model depth approaches are compared. Among them, the use of added coefficients for quasi-steady problems is discussed. On the basis of potential flow theory, different approaches for determining fluid-induced additional mass are established and illustrated using an analytical example. Given the limitations of simplifying the engineering models, the second part of the paper provides a brief overview on computational methods for fluid-structure interaction and presents a monolithic modelling approach using space-time finite elements for discretisation of both fluid and structure. Applications from aero- and hydro-elasticity show the applicability of computational methods for problems involving flow-induced added mass, damping, and stiffness. [less ▲]

The paper proposes a modular functional modeling framework, which aims at integrating the different functional modeling perspectives, relevant to different disciplines. The results of two extensive literature studies on diverse functional modeling approaches proposed in a variety of disciplines are consolidated. These studies identified specific needs for an integrated functional modeling approach to support interdisciplinary conceptual design. The presented framework aims at fulfilling these needs. It consists of a variety of associated views, represented through different matrices. This matrix-based representation facilitates the analysis of different functional modeling perspectives and their interdependencies. Finally, the implications of the presented approach are discussed.

We discuss a set of semi-pervasive games (the so-called “Twin Cities”games) which are designed to bring people together at remotely twinned locations through the use of video-to-video communication and multitouch interaction. We also present an early classification of video-to-video (v2v) interaction games that is designed to inform designers about the potential of such technologies. We classify them as: using video for awareness and communication, interacting with video and video as a game. [less ▲]

Many important problems involving a group of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) are closely related to the multi traviling salesman problem (m-TSP). This paper comprises a comparative study of a number of algorithms proposed in the litterature to solve m-TSPs occuring in robotics. The investigated algoritms include two mixed integer linear programming (MILP) formulations, a market based approach (MA), a Voronoi partition step (VP) combined with the local search used in MA, and a deterministic and a stocastic version of the granular tabu search (GTS). To evaluate the algoritms, an m-TSP is derived from a planar environment with polygonal obstacles and uniformly distributed targets and vehicle positions. The results of the comparison indicate that out of the decentralized approaches, the MA yield good solutions but requires long computation times, while VP is fast but not as good. The two MILP approaches suffer from long computation times, and poor results due to the decomposition of the assignment and path planning steps. Finally, the two GTS algorithms yield good results in short times with inputs from MA as well as the much faster VP. Thus the best performing centralized approach is the GTS in combination with the VP. [less ▲]

The style of the DTD was found to influence the length of the analysis phase and lead to differences in the course of the two idea generation meetings and to a higher idea generation rate. [less ▲]

Dynamic epistemic logic as viewed by Baltag, Moss and Solecki (BMS) and propositional dynamic logic (PDL) offer different semantics of events. On the one hand, BMS adds dynamics to epistemic logic by introducing so-called event models as syntactic objects into the language. On the other hand, PDL has instead transition relations between possible worlds. This last approach allows to easily introduce converse events. In this paper we add epistemics to this, and call the resulting logic epistemic dynamic logic (EDL). We show that BMS can be translated into EDL thanks to this use of the converse operator : it enables us to translate the structure of the event model directly within a particular axiomatization of EDL, without having to refer to a particular epistemic event model in the language (as done in BMS).We show that EDL is more expressive and general than BMS and we characterize semantically and syntactically in EDL this embedding of BMS.

Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) equipped with surveillance cameras present a flexible complement to the numerous stationary sensors being used in security applications today. However, to take full advantage of the flexibility and speed offered by a group of UGV platforms, a fast way to compute desired camera locations to cover an area or a set of buildings, e.g., in response to an alarm, is needed. Building upon earlier results in terrain guarding and sensor placement we propose a way to find candidate guard positions that satisfy a large set of view angle and range constraints simulataneously. Since the original problem is NP-complete, we do not seek to find the true optimal set of guard positions. Instead, a near optimal subset of the candidate points is chosen using a scheme with a known approximation ratio of O(log(n)). A number of examples are presented to illustrate the approach. [less ▲]

The theoretical basis underlying the construction of a CAT is summed up and the item response theory explained. In comparison with a classical paper-and-pencil test, the characteristics and the advantages of a CAT are exposed. After performing a thorough analysis of the data, we developed a CAT based on the responses of 3590 children to a standardized mathematical test. The software presents a great amount of flexibility and allows treating multiple-choice items, as well as items with free response options and graphical items. Some results of an empirical evaluating study are presented. We showed that qualities of power, flexibility and economy of time of the CAT do not imply the loss of the classical psychometric properties of a paper-and-pencil test; we analyze the carry-over effect between the computerized and the paper-and-pencil test situation and as well as the relations between mathematical skills and general cognitive abilities.

An increasing interest in the application of artificial intelligence tools and techniques can be observed in several fields, including engineering design. Due to their natures, engineering design and artificial intelligence, more than "conventional" programming paradigms, seem to be made for each other or at least seem to promise an important leap forwards in the development of computer tools for complex tasks. However, the same natures demand more research to be done not only in the field of artificial intelligence, but also in the field of engineering design. For a genuine integration of Artificial Intelligence with Engineering Design both research areas should go hand in hand. After a short history of the relation between artificial intelligence and engineering design and some of the typical characteristics of engineering design, an overview is given of the different aspects of the design process supported already by artificial intelligence. Finally research areas are described that emerge if the areas supported are projected in the design space. The point of view taken is engineering design with an emphasis on mechanical engineering design. [less ▲]
