Nurul Momen, doctoral student at the Department of Computer Science at Karlstad University, has investigated whether apps’ data access takes user integrity into account. Let’s say, purely hypothetically, that there is an app for washing your hands. You start it for the first time and an interface shows on the screen saying: “Permission required to access water”. You press “Allow” and use the app to wash your hands.

Digitalisation has proven to be an effective way to reduce the number of errors in the production stage. The new technology has mainly been used in, for example, the car manufacturing industry. In a new project, researchers at Karlstad University are looking at the really heavy metal industry where manual work is still common. Forging processes in the heavy metal industry consist of many manual processes where an error may result in costly stops in production.

When I came to Karlstad University in august 2019, I had no idea how dynamic my sabbatical year as a guest researcher at CTF, Service Research Center, would become. A sabbatical I am assistant professor of user-centered innovation at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of TU Delft, which started out as a traditional product design department, but by now conducts research and educates in design and innovation of products, services and systems.
