my research interests are mobile computing, embedded computing, and virtual universes. projects that i’ve worked on include the opencard framework, DEAPspace, the IBM mobile health toolkit aka IBM Personal Care Connect, CA-PK3, electronic ticketing, secured linux laptop, smart home, and, lately, IBM Secure trade lane.
blogs, publications, patents, presentations
if you search for “dirk husemann” in the patent databases, you’ll find a number of patents issued with me as one of the inventors — though, some of those listed having nothing to do with me (for example, i never invented that swivel chair thingy ;-)
as part of my job i occasionally do presentations on my research work; here’s a list of presentations i’ve done of the years:
- virtual worlds, security, & trust — an oxymoron?, initially presented at the future net event workshop in zurich, september 2007
- IBM mobile health toolkit, general ibm mobile health toolkit presentation
- Open Mobile Phone Hub: Gateway to the World, Bridging between Near and Far, presentation at Mobile Europe workshop, bremen, 2003.
- pervasive big blue, 2001
- DAB CA architecture, presentation to WorldDAB forum, technical committee, 2002
- disappearing computer???
you can get a complete list of publications from my online CV.
over the years i’ve been advisor for a couple of phd students — most of them survived the ordeal and live to tell the story ;-) in case you are interested in my “victims:”
