Using multiple lenses of strategic choice theories (diffusion of innovation, organizational innovativeness) and institutional theory as the basis and reflecting data from semi-structured interviews and news reports, the study develops an integrative conceptual RFID adoption model and presents testable hypotheses at the construct and rationale levels. The(More)
This study addresses an IOS (interorganizational system) adoption literature gap by proposing an integrative model of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) adoption and incorporating the effect of perceived radicalness of technology in IOS adoption decisions. Three technological factors (perceived benefit, perceived costs and compatibility), four(More)
Children's difficulty in point-and-click tasks using indirect pointing devices such as the mouse has been documented in several studies. This difficulty is manifested in a lack of control near the target, which often results in children clicking inaccurately. This paper presents and evaluates <i>PointAssist</i>, a tool that helps children in pointing tasks(More)
While primary care, obstetrical, and surgical services have started to expand in the world's poorest regions, there is only sparse literature on the essential support systems that are required to make these operations function. Diagnostic imaging is critical to effective rural healthcare delivery, yet it has been severely neglected by the academic, public,(More)
Power utilities are increasingly rolling out “smart” grids with the ability to track consumer power usage in near real-time using smart meters that enable bidirectional communication. However, the true value of smart grids is unlocked only when the veritable explosion of data that will become available is ingested, processed, analyzed and translated into(More)
This study is among the first few empirical field studies that tests a proposed RFID adoption and implementation model based on strategic choice and institutional theories using survey data. We use a multi-stage model approach as suggested by Cooper and Zmud (1990) and test our proposed model by studying factors that are critical in the evaluation, adoption(More)
In this paper, we report our effort at the standardization, design and partial implementation of a multilingual dictionary in the context of three large scale projects, viz., (i) Cross Lingual Information Retrieval, (ii) English to Indian Language Machine Translation, and (iii) Indian Language to Indian Language Machine Translation. These projects are large(More)
We report here our work on Domain Specific Iterative Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) for nouns, adjectives and adverbs in the trilingual setting of English, Hindi 1 and Marathi 2 . The methodology proposed relies on dominant senses of words in specified domains. Starting from monosemous words we iteratively disambiguate bi, tri and polysemous words. We(More)
This paper addresses a gap in individual adoption literature by incorporating the effect of individual differences on IT adoption and use decisions. The research model builds on the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) (Venkatesh et al., 2003). The proposed model incorporates the five dimensions of personality (Extraversion,(More)
