Participants were alternately assigned to a group with or without being supported by MIA during a form filling task. Here participants were shown a scenario that asked them to plan a route on a webpage. An explorative evaluation of the task was emphasized. Next participants had to appreciate MIA’s visual appearance to figure out what kind of affective response the digital assistant evokes, along with participants assessment of MIA’s functions, age, trustworthiness and experience. Based on the Technology Acceptance Model of Davis (1987), it is find out, whether the use of MIA during the form filling task leads to an increased intention to use a digital assistant like MIA. Furthermore it is investigated whether the support of MIA influences people’s computer self-efficacy, their belief in their capacity to complete a task successfully; in this study to be able to fill in online forms. Afterwards participants had to install the plug-in needed to get support of MIA. At the end participant's intention to use a digital assistant like MIA was measured.

To study the effect of using conversation with a digital driving assistant as a countermeasure to passive task- related fatigue, it was important create a situation in which drivers would begin to exhibit fatigue-induced symptoms. Literature suggests that a combination of time-on-task, time- of-day and driving monotony are likely to induce such symptoms amongst drivers, with effects revealed in a driving simulator during relatively short (40 minute) drives  and afternoon testing , when circadian and homeostatic influences naturally reduce participants’ alertness . Adopting a similar approach for the current study, all testing was scheduled to occur in the afternoon (between 14:00 and 16:30), and drivers were asked to consume a normal lunch and refrain from consuming caffeine prior to attending. Drivers were required to drive for 1 hour. Thirty minutes accompanied by a digital assistant and thirty minutes driving alone (the order of drives was counterbalanced to avoid experience effects). In common with the aforementioned studies, a range of measures was captured to detect the onset and progression of driver fatigue.

A previous study conducted at our institution tested a new tool for assessment of educational workload by faculty members (S.T., L. Lingard, J. Hellmann, et al, unpublished data, 2004). The tool was designed to cap- ture all aspects of educational work to foster excellence in teaching, facilitate academic promotion and compen- sation, and guide distribution of educational resources. The workload tool had 4 templates: (1) clinical/bedside teaching, (2) teaching/educational activities, (3) men- torship; and (4) administrative/evaluative activities. The educational personal digital assistant (PDA) tool that was constructed was considered to be usable by faculty with minor modifications after a pilot study.

Besides, the costs of deploying WLAN are becoming low and continue to drop are encouraging the adoption of WLAN in healthcare services. The role of wireless WLAN in our daily activities is rapidly expanding. In addition, computers, PDA, digital information, communications and software are not only being used in routine and mundane, but have also enhanced our capability to bring distant points closer to each other. This telecommunications marvel has made it possible to access distributed resources for collecting information, processing information and dissemination of information in an efficient and cost-effective manner . The emergence of small, lightweight, lower-power and inexpensive wireless terminals such as PDA contribute widespread interest in the telemedicine. By supporting links to wireless networks, this versatile and affordable device eliminate unnecessary paperwork; optimize user productivity and bring products, services and transaction points directly to the user . Therefore, the advances in WLAN and PDA are shaping the adoption of both technologies in medicine.

Documentation of physician competence begins during post-graduate medical training. The U.S. Residency Review Committee (RRC) for Emergency Medicine (EM) requires that residency programs document house offic- ers' experience with invasive procedures and major resus- citations . Historically, documentation of procedures and major resuscitations was achieved with handwritten logbooks or index card systems. In the last several years, several residency programs have instituted web-based documentation programs, and more recently, programs have introduced personal digital assistants (PDA) to store procedural and other data, replacing traditional handwrit- ten index cards and logbooks [4-6]. PDAs are small hand- held computers whose portability and memory capacity have made them valuable in many aspects of health care, including research, education, documentation, drug pre- scriptions, patient tracking, online medical literature access, and daily reference [4,5,7-16].
Patients randomized to paper collection had their data recorded on standard forms. We recorded the time required for study investigators to prospectively collect data from the patient and the physician using a handheld stopwatch. The emergency physician was interviewed first, followed by the patient. Documentation times were reported as the combined times for the physician and patient interviews. Each investigator performed the timing for the patients they enrolled. Times were rounded to the nearest second. Each form was then transcribed by a research assistant onto an e-form located on the study website. A study investigator timed the transcription of each paper form.
Such undertakings, genuinely performed by an individual assistant or secretary, join taking translation, scrutinizing substance or email messages resoundingly, investigating phone numbers, arranging, putting phone calls and reminding the end-customer about plans. Surely understood menial helpers at present join Amazon Alexa, Apple's Siri, Google Now and Microsoft's Cortana - the advanced partner consolidated with Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10
By this implementation we can easily improve human machine communication and ass well as the digital personal assistant qualities can be improved effectively by employing sensor network elements. We can develop our own algorithms to develop prediction based applications by analysing the uploaded data to the AWS server.Video analysis can be done and live video analysis will be more useful for security applications.
formal knowledge from a professional relationship with technology such as web design. Informal experts here refer to people who have a good grasp of the range of functions on their mobile phone, probably use a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), BlackBerry, or similar, easily find their way around the Web, and participate in some online interest group or social networking site - people who tend to enjoy using technologies and have an interest in the emergence of new ICTs into the market. They were sought on the basis that they would have a richer engagement in comparison to the public at large with ICTs and in some senses be more likely to reflect early adopters (Rogers, 2003) of emerging trends in ICTs use.

If marketing creates and satisfies demand, digital marketing drives the creation of demand using the power of the Internet, and satisfies this demand in new and innovative ways. The Internet is an interactive medium. It allows for the exchange of currency, but more than that, it allows for the exchange of value. A business on the Internet can gain value in the form of time, attention and advocacy from the consumer. For the user, value can be added in the form of entertainment, enlightenment and utility; content marketing is one powerful way to create value. The reciprocity of the transaction is what’s important here – in other words, the exchange is a two-way street that provides benefit to both parties simultaneously.

The proposed wireless body area sensor network for health monitoring integrated into a broader multitier telemedicine system is illustrated in Figure 1. The tele medical system spans a network comprised of individual health monitoring systems that connect through the Internet to a medical server tier that resides at the top of this hierarchy. The top tier, centered on a medical server, is optimized to service hundreds or thousands of individual users, and encompasses a complex network of interconnected services, medical personnel, and healthcare professionals. Each user wears a number of sensor nodes that are strategically placed on her body. The primary functions of these sensor nodes are to unobtrusively sample vital signs and transfer the relevant data to a personal server through wireless personal network implemented using ZigBee (802.15.4) or Bluetooth (802.15.1). The personal server, implemented on a personal digital assistant (PDA), cell phone, or home personal computer, sets up and controls the WBAN, provides graphical or audio interface to the user, and transfers the information about health status to the medical server through the Internet or mobile telephone networks (e.g., GPRS, 3G). The medical server keeps electronic medical records of registered users and provides various services to the users, medical personnel, and informal caregivers. It is the responsibility of the medical server to authenticate users, accept health monitoring session uploads, format and insert this session data into corresponding medical records, analyze the data patterns, recognize serious health anomalies in order to contact emergency care givers, and forward new instructions to the users, such as physician prescribed exercises. The patient’s physician can access the data from his/her office via the Internet and examine it to ensure the patient is within expected health metrics (heart rate, blood pressure, activity), ensure that the patient is responding to a given treatment or that a patient has been performing the given exercises. A server agent may inspect the uploaded data and create an alert in the case of a potential medical condition. The large amount of data collected through these services can also be utilized for knowledge
Primary studies or systematic reviews of digital media use in a public health context targeting any population and reporting any outcome were included in the scoping review. One reviewer focussed on visual media (CC); two reviewers focussed on electronic and online media (KC, CD), this was supplemented by additional studies in this area identified by CC. Systematic reviews focussing on prevention, health promotion and service provision (i.e. public health interventions) were analysed in more detail by one reviewer (CC), while information from other study types was used to complement the scoping map.

Master Thesis: Drum Assistant Page 9 practice individually on a piece of music with the help of a metronome. Each group is also divided into three sub-groups who had to practice in different conditions, namely (1) at performance tempo, (2) a slow and then gradually increasing tempo, and (3) an alternating slow and fast tempo. The improvement of a student is measured by an investigator that did a comparison of the correctness in pitch, rhythm, and tempo between the first and last repetition of the music piece. The results showed that the group that used a model made significantly better improvements in performance tempo than in the other two conditions. The other two conditions were not significantly different from each other. The results also revealed that the modeling condition had a significant effect on the improvements in rhythm correctness. In our project we want to conduct an experiment that looks like the one being held in this project. The goal is to investigate which type of feedback provides the highest improvement in the performance of students. We will only use a fixed performance tempo during the practice, which is the one that resulted in the highest improvements in Henley’s experiment. We will not use a human investigator that judges that performance of the student, but we will measure the improvements mathematically which make the results more reliable.

The expansion of the cyberspace and the enormous process in computing and software applications enabled technology to cover every aspect of our life. Unfortunately, this caused people to be overwhelmed with technology, and they find difficulties in dealing with these different applications. Nevertheless, having a lot of aspects of people’s life driven by technology also means that the personal smart assistant has an opportunity to assist users in different aspects of their lives. The personal assistant can utilize technology on behalf of the user to assist him/her in accomplishing his/her desired goal. Research in personal assistant has been around for years; researchers always try to improve the personal assistant because it is being used in more domains each day. Whether it is in the medical field, the manufacturing field, the digital advertising field, or just to help users in their daily office work; personal assistant needs to be aware of the user’s goals, interests and behaviours and provide the necessary assistant accordingly. Therefore, it is necessary to design a general personal assistant framework that could be applied to any domain.

Muhammad Sheikh Sadi, Saifuddin Mahmud, Md. Mostafa Kamal, Abu Ibne have proposed a solution for blind individuals to navigate securely by identifying the barrier and producing the associated warning signal as per the range of the barrier. The approach is given by the development of a moving assistant integrated in a spectacle glass between a barrier detection unit and also an alarm generator. There will only be one ultrasonic sensor in the barrier detection unit that can reach a range of 3 meters as well as an angle of 60 degrees to spot barriers. The barrier detection unit produces a large-frequency signal across an ultrasonic sensor and evaluates the signal return back by the sensor. Therefore, the length of the barrier is evaluated and so this data about the barrier is transmitted to the blind through the use of an alert generator that produces an alarm equivalent to the range.
