Publication
MARKETING AND SMART TECHNOLOGIES, VOL 1

Abstract
Website is a bridge between users and online information. It is extremely important in terms of marketing and must be designed according to the rules of usability, especially in hotel industry. Websites with high usability value will be accessed by more users. Therefore, building a useful website is important. This study aims to evaluate, from the point of view of usability, the websites of hotel establishments in Terras de Tras-os-Montes, a region located in the north of Portugal.

A Highly Customizable Information Visualization Framework

Publication
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics)

Abstract
The human brain can quickly become overwhelmed by the amounts of data computers can process. Consequently, data abstraction is necessary for a user to grasp information and identify valuable patterns. Data is usually abstracted in a pictorial or graphical format. Nowadays, users demand more personalization from the systems they use. This work proposes a user-centered framework that aims to ease creating visualizations for the developers of a platform while offering the end-user a highly customizable experience. The conceptualized solution was prototyped and tested to ensure the information about the data is transmitted to the user in a quick and effective manner. The results of a user study showed that users are pleased with the usability of the prototype and prove that they desire control over the configuration of their visualizations. This work not only confirmed the usefulness of previously explored personalization options for visual representations, but also explored promising new personalization options. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Reinforcement Learning for Multi-Agent Competitive Scenarios

Coutinho M.; Reis L.P.;

Publication
2022 IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions, ICARSC 2022

Abstract
Reinforcement Learning techniques allow learning complex behaviors to deal with a variety of situations in a matter of hours. This complexity is even more prominent in multi-agent continuous 3D environments. This paper compares how the actions taken by two agents independently trained via a self-play approach differ from the ones taken when they are controlled by the same policy. It also explores the emergence of competitive or collaborative behaviors in a natural game setting. By implementing a 3D simulated version of the Dance Dance Revolution, the acquisition of more specific abilities like equilibrium, balance, and dexterity was tested. The approach achieved very good results learning a predefined sequence of buttons (7 arrows correctly pressed in 20M timesteps), revealing a similar learning behavior to human beings (improving with training and performing better in this kind of sequence than in random ones). The self-play approach also produced some interesting effects by developing cooperative behaviors in theoretically competitive scenarios.
