My 4-pages paper "ユビキタス社会における、快適かつ能率的な操作の為の個人プロファイルの設立:一般人の意見?" ("Creation of Personal Profiles for Comfortable and Efficient Interactions in U-Societies: Laymen’s Views?") written with HOAREAU Christian, AUSTERMANN Anja, and 橋爪宏達 (HASHIZUME Hiromichi) was published at the 日本バーチャルリアリティ学会第13回大会 (13th annual conference of the Virtual Reality Society of Japan) the 24 September 2008 (see post on VRSJ大会 2008).
Abstract: We introduce laymen's views on individual profiles to improve ubiquitous environments as well as interactions between humans and personal, shared or public systems. We evoke knowledge sufficient to create profiles based on physical and mental abilities. Using questionnaires and interviews, we highlight problems experienced by the general public then indicate its perception of usefulness and risks for oneself and one's family, as well as wishes for services and situations. We briefly discuss the creation, updates and exploitation of profiles, privacy and trust, and perspectives for future social investigations.
