Samskaping for fremtidens kunnskap / Co-creation for the knowledge of the future

Very proud to be part of a big team and to contribute to the vision of the University of Agder (UiA), Norway.

Values: Transparency. Trust. Professionalism. Respect.

Our academic culture
Academic freedom. We have a culture of scientific quality, creativity, boldness, critical thinking and ethical reflection. We stand up for the independence of universities and academics.

Sustainability. We contribute to achieving the UN's sustainability goals through relevant, interdisciplinary and inclusive research, education and innovation. We are open to the world and show solidarity.

Diversity. Our community of knowledge is characterised by equality and inclusion.

The social mission - this is how we work
Co-creation of knowledge takes place when students, employees and work and social life mutually challenges each other. We create and make knowledge available and contributes to innovation through close collaboration and critical reflection for the future society. Co-creation takes place regionally, nationally and internationally.

A Multi Modal Intervention Framework for Improving Situational Awareness in Autistic Individuals by Predicting Emotional Outbursts

Today is the World Autism Awareness Day. At the University of Agder, I am supervising our talented PhD Fellow Saishashank Balaji, who is working on a research project titled "A Multi Modal Intervention Framework for Improving Situational Awareness in Autistic Individuals by Predicting Emotional Outbursts". The objective of this work is threefold: i) to utilise commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sensor technology (i.e., personal sensors as well as environmental sensors) to collect different biosignals (i.e., electrodermal activity (EDA), heart rate variability (HRV), heart rate (HR)), design a multi-modal user-centred fusion model, and develop adaptive control algorithms for meltdowns mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery; ii) to design novel, minimally invasive, highly acceptable wearable devices to complement existing biometric sensors and to exploit the potential of tactile empathy applied to all stages of a meltdown; iii) to investigate the feasibility of adopting social robots (i.e., the EVE humanoid robot from Halodi Robotics) to establish a social empathic relation using an embodied companion.
