  • Investigating the future of self-service technology 

    Robertson, Paul; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Johnson, Graham (BCS, 2010)
    In this paper we describe an ongoing research project between NCR Dundee and Abertay University to investigate the future of self-service technology for entertainment. The aim was to assess how future technologies may be ...
  • An investigation into gender role conformity in an online social networking environment 

    Fawzi, Alexander; Szymkowiak, Andrea (Springer, 2014)
    Social networking sites (SNS) offer a relatively novel arena in which to display and investigate social behavior. The study investigated consistency between social behaviors typical of traditional (offline) social interactions ...
  • Is visual search a high-level phenomenon? Evidence from structure perception in 3-D scatterplots 

    Shovman, Mark; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Bown, James L.; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C. (Pion, 2010)
    Increasing use of 3-D scatterplots for trend detection in visual analytics, raises the theoretical question: what constitutes an object in such a task? Previously (Shovman et al, 2008 Perception 37 79 ^ 80) we have shown ...
  • Joint attention for pointing but not grasping postures 

    Fischer, Martin H.; Szymkowiak, Andrea (Elsevier Masson, 2004)
    “Joint attention” refers to changes in one`s own action potentials after observing somebody else’s actions. For example, perceived gaze leads to corresponding attention shifts (Hood et al., 1998; Schuller and Rossion, ...
  • Keystroke dynamics in the pre-touchscreen era 

    Ahmad, Nasir; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Campbell, Paul A. (Frontiers, 2013-12-19)
    Biometric authentication seeks to measure an individual’s unique physiological attributes for the purpose of identity verification. Conventionally, this task has been realized via analyses of fingerprints or signature iris ...
  • Linking recorded data with emotive and adaptive computing in an eHealth environment 

    Ball, Leslie D.; Bradley, David A.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Brownsell, Simon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-29)
    Telecare, and particularly lifestyle monitoring, currently relies on the ability to detect and respond to changes in individual behaviour using data derived from sensors around the home. This means that a significant aspect ...
  • The meaning of graphs: scatterplots as a test-bed for theories of object-hood 

    Shovman, Mark; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Bown, James L. (Wolfgang Krammer, 2012)
    The burgeoning field of visual analytics offers a novel area for research in principles of Gestalt, specifically in the definitions of object-hood. Abstract visualisations are parsed into perceptual objects that are rich ...
  • A memory aid with remote communication using distributed technology 

    Szymkowiak, Andrea; Morrison, Kenny; Gregor, Peter; Shah, Prveen; Evans, Jonathan J.; Wilson, Barbara A. (Springer Verlag, 2005-01)
    Electronic memory aids have been used successfully to give reminders to individuals with memory problems. These aids usually present short action reminders that are acknowledged by the user. The recent enhancement of ...
  • A memory aid with remote communication: preliminary findings 

    Szymkowiak, Andrea; Morrison, Kenny; Gregor, Peter; Inglis, Elizabeth A.; Shah, Praveen; Evans, Jonathan J.; Wilson, Barbara A. (Elsevier, 2005)
    Memory problems are often associated with ageing and are among the most common effects of brain injury. Such problems can severely disrupt daily life and put huge strain on family members and carers. Electronic devices ...
  • Neuroscience perspectives on security 

    Rusconi, Elena; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Szymkowiak, Andrea (Frontiers, 2014-12-09)
  • Twist and learn: interface learning in 3DOF exploration of 3D scatterplots 

    Shovman, Mark; Bown, James L.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C. (ACM, 2015)
    The increasing availability of 3D interfaces brings promise of improved user experience in diverse areas. Our study focuses on visual analytics, testing whether 3D interactivity improves performance in a visual data ...
  • Usable technology? Challenges in designing a memory aid with current electronic devices 

    Inglis, E. A.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Gregor, P.; Newell, A. F.; Hine, N.; Wilson, B. A.; Evans, J.; Shah, P. (Taylor & Francis, 2004-03)
    Electronic devices such as personal digital assistants have been used successfully as aids for people with memory problems. However, limitations of currently available technology can create difficulties in the day-to-day ...
  • Use of 'pop-out' paradigm to test graph comprehension in a three-dimensional scatter plot 

    Shovman, Mark; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Bown, James L. (Pion, 2008)
    The emerging field of visual analytics applies abstract data visualisations to analyse complex, multivariate data. Data visualisations comprise a full spectrum of pictorial and symbolic elements; thus, juxtaposing theories ...
  • Using virtual agents to cue observer attention 

    Martinez, Santiago; Sloan, Robin J. S.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C. (IARIA, 2010-11-21)
    This paper describes an experiment developed to study the performance of virtual agent motion cues within digital interfaces. Increasingly, agents are used in virtual environments as part of the branding process and to ...
