What can Smartphone Apps learn about their Users, using Big Data and Machine Learning?

Our vision is to create smartphone apps that know their users well and can therefore support them with their personal development goals or dealing with chronic illness. Are you interested in exploring how well exactly your smartphone could get to know you? Show details 

Simulating crime - Master Thesis

Creating and enhancing an agent-based model to simulate crime! Study one of many challenges related to simulating crime. Looking for: - a technical student with programing or statistics skills - or social scientists interested criminality of places and offender behavior Show details 

Bachelor/Master Thesis: Food AllergyChecker App

Together, we will build a mobile app that allows user to check food items (barcode scan products or assess machine-readable menu items) and validate them versus a new interoperable user-specific allergy profile. This research will help to create a new allergy standard for users world-wide. Show details 

Master Thesis: Creating Intention to Eat Healthier: Food Checklist based Avatar

In this thesis, you will use & improve an existing nutrition avatar that predicts a user's health in 10 years based on his/current nutrition. Your avatar will be tested under real-life conditions and validated by real users via the Swiss mobile app stores. Show details 

Master Thesis: BetterChoice: Purchase Feedback App

We will build a mobile application called BetterChoice. Our app aims to scan Swiss products and give nutritional feedback based on ingredient data. The app has 3 innovations: 1) evaluation purchase history long-term, 2) user-specific recommendations, 3) aggregating multiple product databases. Show details 

Master Thesis: Measuring Nutritional Literacy in USA/DE/CH (Online Survey or App)

This project aims to build the first cross-country online assessment of nutritional literacy (i.e. test of ability to identify and make health food choices). Your online survey or app will assess nutritional literacy in US/DE/CH and contribute towards future health app development. Show details 

Master thesis - Foraging behavior in Criminals: an agent-based model

Can offender behavior be represented in an agent-based model inspired by foraging theories? Can criminals learn where to offend by behaving as foragers and optimizing their search mechanisms? Show details 

Requirements for Crime Prediction Models

The aim of this master thesis is to outline the requirements of a crime prevention IS for the police. More specifically, what are the needs and expectations of the different roles within the police force (e.g. analyst and dispatcher) in respect to crime prediction models in production. Show details 

Machine Learning for Crime Prediction Models

The aim of this master thesis is to develop a crime prediction model based on a substantial set of socio-demographic, spatial and temporal features describing the structure and dynamics of Swiss/American cities. Show details 

Master thesis proposal: Predicting companies success with the help of online ratings

The brick-and-mortar financial industry is becoming under pressure from its e-commerce and increasingly non-financial competitors. Customers request an increasingly more extensive and better service. This project is about building the foundation of such a service. Show details 

Step Prediction

This master thesis aims at writing a smartphone application that can predict how many steps a smartphone user will do on the next day. Show details 

Right or Wrong? If I say I will use a technology, I will do so in the future.

Is there an intention-behavior gap in information systems research? A meta-analysis based on evidence from technology acceptance studies Show details
