CISC 600 Scientific Computing I


Engineers and scientists continue to develop new methods for modeling the real world.

Look for a peer-reviewed article that covers the creation or testing of a computational model or mathematical model to describe a real world phenomenon.

In a brief summary, answer these questions:

What problem were they trying to solve

How was it built?

What were the parameters and limitations of the model?

How was the model tested?

What were the results?

What are the next steps in research?


Porzi and colleagues.

(2013), the author carefully studied the challenges faced by people with impaired eyesight.

He looked into the possibilities of the technology within the mobile phone to be made more accessible for those with impaired vision.

The screen readers and voice commands of low vision people are more important than the usual and traditional use for cellphones.

The author wanted people with less vision or visual impairments to be able use the technology of cell phones in a fresh and new way.

The mobile technology was combined with traditional wrist watches to create the model.

The concept was to combine the usage of smartphones with traditional watches. This was called smartwatches.

Mobile phones paired with smartwatches offered a new way to view the world.

The watches can be programmed to work with the same interfaces as the mobile phones. They can also be used via voice commands or hand gestures which is very helpful for those with disabilities (Gossweiler & Miller 2013).

It is a revolutionary technology that has been used by a minority of humans, but it also has its limitations. The watch requires a smartphone in order to be connected.

A few healthy and normal people were tested to see if the models of smartwatches would work well.

These watches were then put to market after thorough testing and receiving positive feedback.

Very few were donated to the poor and disabled.

It was tested using hand gestures for certain functions, voice clarity, and sensors such as heartbeat sensors and blood pressure measuring sensors.

It was also tested to see if the watches are resistant to drops and splashes of water.

Because of the inventions of new technology that can assist people in many aspects, the market response and results were extremely positive.

People loved the idea of the watch being able to monitor their health and provide medical care.

It is now possible to monitor heart rate and BP remotely without having to visit a doctor.

It has more features than traditional wrist watches, including the ability to call through bluetooth or wifi of a mobile device. The technology also received more attention due to its camera and testing through watches.

Komnino & Dunlop (2014) stated that the smartwatches also need to be updated in software and hardware.

It is important to continue research to identify more areas that are critical for the human race.

To detect illnesses in the body such as diabetes and monitor the functioning of different organs, more sensors will be needed.

Smartwatches must be able replace mobile phones completely, and can also perform basic functions like photography.

You also need to consider wireless charging and increasing the battery life.
