Both scientific research and anecdotal evidence indicate that human-computer interaction may lead to notable stress perceptions in users. This type of stress is referred to as technostress. So far, most studies used questionnaires to investigate technostress. In this article, we draw upon a different conceptual perspective, namely neurobiology, thereby(More)
Assisted Living Systems with Ambient Intelligence technology raise new challenges to system and software engineering. The development of Assisted Living applications requires domain-oriented interdisciplinary research – it is essential to know both the domain and the context. It is also important that context-descriptive prototypes are: (1) an integrated(More)
Opinion mining deals with scientific methods in order to find, extract and systematically analyze subjective information. When performing opinion mining to analyze content on the Web, challenges arise that usually do not occur in laboratory environments where prepared and preprocessed texts are used. This paper discusses preprocessing approaches that help(More)
The field of opinion mining provides a multitude of methods and techniques to be utilized to find, extract and analyze subjective information, such as the one found on social media channels.
