Seminar Meeting 2011.10.27

Today we have three students to continue the presentation and illustrate their main interest on their thesis.

1. Riyoung Chang

The main interest was on the regulation, marketing , expenditure of telecom business.

Chang discussed the necessity to regulate telecom industries by showing the MNP(mobile number portability) usage in Korea  during 2006-2010 which was gradually arising. Chang considered that  customers go back and forth among the operators due to companies’ price competition. This has become a vicious cycle that should be concerned. Whether adopt regulation on telecom industries was what Chang will focus on.

Chang will search for further data for statistic analysis of MNP and market share in Korea, actual proofs on the price gap also make comparison with other countries as his future work.

2. Wenji Li

3G, new type of advertising based on customers acceptance.

Despite the application of mobile phone in China is increasing, consumer beavior is not yet sufficient. Li decided to focus on consumer behavior  by investigating why, how, when and where people access mobile advertisement. She will find proper approaches and give a clue to mobile advertisement.

In her future work, Li will do more literature review, design questionnaires, conduct interview, and do case study in Japan.

3. Milliya Tsai

Location based Service and Regional Tourism Development.

According to Milliya’s explaination, LBS identify people’s geographical position, and people can use it as navigation, request the nearst business or service (e.g. ATM or restaurants.) or find whereabouts of friends, emploees…etc.

Milliya will focus on whether the LBS will facilitate the touring development of an area, and whether LBS provides useful information and change consumers’ consuming behavior.

Milliya also discussed the difficulties that companies will have to conquer while developing LBS. For example, How to make users provide more information? How to provide right information at right time? How to make interface intuitively? On customers’ side, what is the most concerned will be the privacy problem.

In her future work, she will try to understand consumers satisfaction and consumers behavior by interviewing /taking survey on both Japanese and foreign students.

Socializing QR

Socializing QR

Digital Society is now featuring QR code.
But what exactly is QR code?

A QR code (abbreviation for Quick Response code) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data.
Common in Japan, where it was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. The QR code was created to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.
The technology has seen frequent use in Japan, the Netherlands, and South Korea, while the West has been slower in the adoption of QR codes. (Wikipedia)

As of Digital Society’s QR Code, it links to http://digitalsociety.jp/like.html, which is a page written specifically for mobile devices. The purpose of this mobile page is to digitally socialize. Visitors can easily “Like” us on Facebook or “Follow” us via Twitter. Audiences can simply use their mobile devices to scan the (above) QR Code, and they should be automatically redirect to the designated page. Hey! Why don’t you give it a try ;)
