Achieving hyper-performance is an essential aim not only for organizations and societies but also for individuals. Digital transformation is reshaping the workplace so fast that people start falling behind, with their poor attitudes remaining the ultimate obstacle. The alignment of human-machine co-evolution is the only sustainable strategy for the...

Habits are automatic actions in stable contexts and can help sustain behavior change. State-of-the-art context-aware habit-support interventions are, however, in predominantly non-visual contexts (time, geolocation, and physical activity), and not in egocentric visual contexts, e.g., eating, meeting people, etc. Using a survey, N = 51 participants,...

Questions (3)
Question
Does anyone know a software to visualize “citing structure”, i.e. that shows how papers in field are linked with one another through references?
I would expect that for a healthy field a tree-like structure would emerge with a clear stem, several strong branches, and twigs shooting off of these branches. If a field is all over the place, then the structure would be more like a shrub, without a stem and branches, but with a proliferation of twigs sprouting right out of the ground.
Any experience or ideas?
Question
Anyone uses or knows free word network visualization tool that could produce a net of words:
- their frequencies determining the size of each bobble and
- the thickness of each connecting determined by the frequency of links between the two connected words
Any experience with such things?
Your help is much appreciated !!
Question
Could anyone suggest any free online survey tool that you use or know (that allows at least up to 100 questions and 500 respondents)?
Survey Monkey has a limit of only 10 questions for free..

While technological innovations are invented and published in frequent constancy, human users tend to resist in adoption to these technologies on same speed. We aim on delivering a meta-model of various technology acceptance / intention to use / etc. / models, theorising a system of factors which determine the probability of technology usage.

Transforming Wellbeing Theory (TWT) is emerging as an inevitable response to the ever-growing imbalance in our lives across the globe. Over the decades, we have been advancing technologies to make our lives better. The fundamental question still remains: with all the evolving innovations, are we gaining decent success in achieving happier and more sustainable societies? Every crucial domain of our lives continuously provides evidence of how things are getting imbalanced despite us making huge progress in building increasingly capable technological innovations, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, and drones, just to name a few. The TWT advances scientific knowledge and its practical applications to transform lives. Due to its strong fundament that intertwines technological innovations with human nature, the theory is applicable in many essential life contexts, including health, education, sustainability, equality, governance, safety, emergency, management, marketing, ecology, economy, and dwelling.
