Medical Check-In Application for Volunteer Organizations

This work presents a client with a unique business problem with the creation of a user friendly check-in system and more specifically an application that would replace the current manual system that is in place. Two possibilities were analyzed and considered in order to reduce reliance on paper tracking. Initially a mobile application was considered where only users who have the QR code can access through PhoneGap with a barcode scanner. The second possibility was taking the initial plan and expanding it into a fully responsive website with strict user access control that could go from desktop, to laptop, to tablet, and to phones. This would allow users to access the application from something other than a mobile device.

The purpose of this experiment was to research using Virtual Reality (VR) as a way for a home builder to experience their unbuilt home, similarly to home shoppers experiencing built homes through open houses and tours. It discusses the ideas and technologies involved, the process for developing a home in VR, and the observations found from demoing it to people. The research was started based on the "presence" effect in VR. Presence describes the feeling when the user is convinced that they are truly in the virtual world. The research conducted found that the main immersion creator and breaker is the interactivity capable in the virtual home. Through demoing a virtual home, it was discovered that the user was less sensitive to the visual quality of the house, and more sensitive to any inconsistent interactions with the house. If the user could physically open a door, but then not a drawer, they were shaken out of their presence. The research conducted also found that VR can provide enough immersion to make the home owner feel "present" in their new home if the application is built with a focus on consistent interactions throughout the environment. This application is capable of severely disrupting the current market climate and reshaping the way home builders decide what house they want to build.

Comprehensive Insight into Website Design Principles

The purpose of this research paper is to address the gap between programmers' capability to develop well-designed websites and the shabby designs of the websites they actually produce. This paper will first address what constitutes a poor website design and what constitutes a good website design. I will research what academia and popular opinion state are taboo elements that condemn a website's design choices and what they extoll as good website design choices. This includes an objective evaluation of both poorly-designed websites and well-designed websites. Following that, this paper will observe the cases of acclaimed and basic programmers and developers who produce incredible technologies while their website development work remains shoddy. I hope to glean some insight into why this performance gap exists. Ultimately, I will create wireframe designs for my own website, demonstrating the elements of a well-designed website in order to address everything I have learned.

Algorithmic Trading in the Crypto-currency Financial Sector

This report is a summary of a long-term project completed by Ido Gilboa for his Honors Thesis. The purpose of this project is to determine if an arbitrage between different crypto-currency exchanges exists, and if it is possible to acts upon such triangular arbitrage. Bitcoin, the specific crypto-currency this report focuses on, has become a household name, yet most do not understand its origin and patterns. The report will detail the process of collecting data from different sources, manipulating it in order to run the algorithms, explain the meaning behind the algorithms, results and important statistics found, and conclusion of the project. In addition to that, the report will go into detail discussing financial terms such as triangular arbitrage as well as information system concepts such as sockets and server communication. The project was completed with the assistance of Dr. Sunil Wahal and Dr. Daniel Mazzola, professors in the W.P. Carey School of business. This project has been stretched over along period of time, spanning from early 2013 to fall of 2015.

Information is Power and Currency in the Virtual World We Inhabit: The Presence of Cybersecurity in Master's Programs

Description

This thesis explores cybersecurity as a profession and whether it belongs in academia. It also explores exactly how it should be implemented into universities. Whether in a bachelor's program or master's program, cybersecurity degree or cybersecurity concentration, engineering school or business school, cybersecurity has a place in higher education that plays an integral role in helping fix the issue of a lack of cybersecurity professionals. At Arizona State University, a cybersecurity concentration currently exists in the engineering school at both the bachelor's and master's level as well as the business school at the bachelor level. The one location it is missing from is the master's level of the business school. The goal of this report is to suggest a change to the specific curriculum in the Information Systems Department at the W.P. Carey School of Business. This thesis compares the curriculum of the Master of Science in Information Management (MSIM) program at Arizona State to eight other programs around the country that either offer a cybersecurity concentration option, offer cybersecurity degrees, or have highly ranked MSIM programs. A new curriculum is recommended that includes greater flexibility for students in customizing their education to specific career fields within information systems, offers multiple certificate options including cybersecurity, and better matches what the other highly ranked programs are offering to students. This curriculum is not only better for students attending or seeking Arizona State University but better for the University itself. It offers a more well-rounded scope of topics than the current program does while maintaining the identity and strengths of the current program.
