1. Neven, Louis. Representations of the Old and Ageing in the Design of the New and Emerging: Assessing the design of Ambient Intelligence technologies for older people.

Degree: Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social Sciences, 2011, University of Twente

This thesis analyses the way older people are conceived of, imagined, or, in the terms of this thesis, represented, as potential users of a new type of information technology (IT/ICT): ambient intelligence (AmI). These user representations matter as gerontechnological innovations are, in our ageing society, increasingly seen as a way of dealing with the social problems the growing number of “elderly” are said to pose. Based on theoretical insights from Social Gerontology, Science and Technology Studies (STS) and Gerontechnology, this thesis asks the question: What user representations of older users are created in design processes and scripted into technologies and how is the diversity of older people taken into account in these processes and scripts? Chapter two analyzes the way the user is represented in “visions”, documents outlining expectations of the future of AmI. Chapter three analyzes the user representations that emerged in laboratory tests with a human-interaction robot and older test users, focusing on the importance of the identity of older people for gerontechnological innovations (e.g. robotics). Chapter four focuses on a pre-market pilot test of an AmI monitoring system for older people and analyses how the user was represented, how this affected the design of this telecare system and how the older people responded to it. The build-up of these three chapters is such that user representations are studied from the conception of AmI till the use practices in the homes of older people. The fifth chapter subsequently reflects upon the way a particularly important issue – dealing with the diversity of older people – is addressed in the first three cases. The thesis concludes by giving four dominant overarching user representations to which the most relevant insights of this thesis are tied. Finally, these insights are translated into seven suggestions (tools) for the design of technologies for older people. Advisors/Committee Members: Oudshoorn, Nelly.

2. Ganzevles, Jurgen Henricus. Technologie voor mens en milieu: een actor-netwerk analyse van de ontwikkeling van energietechnologie voor woningen.

Degree: 2007, University of Twente

Over the past decades, reliance on technologies that can serve both consumers and the environment at the same time has become the dominant feature of Dutch sustainability policy. In documents specifying such policy, we identify a basic trust in the possibility of designing technologies that allow for consumer preferences to grow, whilst at the same time reducing environmental pollution. Technological innovation is put forward as a crucial ingredient for making this “uncoupling” of economic growth and environmental pollution come true. In other words, the idea is that technology should be dually effective, by both pleasing consumers and protecting the environment. This claim puts a large responsibility on the technologists themselves; they are expected to shape technologies in such a way that such dual effects are assured to occur as soon as the innovations in question are put to use. The aforementioned policy approach takes this crucial step for granted which according to the Science and Technology Studies (STS) literature, is shrouded with uncertainty. From the viewpoint of STS, it is therefore possible to criticize this claim as over-optimistic. STS literature shows that, in practices of designing and testing, it is very difficult to anticipate, in a productive way, future reactions of end users and other relevant actors in society. As a result, it is often the case that the effects of technology, once end users become involved, do not match earlier expectations. This critique leads us to the general research question for this thesis, which can be summed up as follows: how do technologists claim that the technology they design will serve both the environment and consumers at the same time, and how do they fulfill this promise in the practice of technological design and testing?

3. Verhaegh, Stefan Jeu Sjraar. How community innovation works: a material-semiotic analysis of the wireless Leiden Wi-Fi network.

Degree: 2010, University of Twente

Het doel van dit proefschrift is op basis van empirisch onderzoek op het terrein van informatie- en communicatietechnologie een bijdrage te leveren aan theorievorming over innovatiepraktijken door gebruikers. Dat doe ik door innovatie door gebruikers vanuit een materieel-semiotisch perspectief te analyseren als gemeenschapsinnovatie. In dit proefschrift staat de vraag centraal hoe gemeenschapsinnovatie in de praktijk werkt. Advisors/Committee Members: Oudshoorn, Nelly, van Oost, Ellen.
