Just as story points are estimates of the cost of a piece of IT functionality, benefit points are estimates of the intended benefit (value for stakeholders) of that piece of functionality. It seems obvious that one should use benefit points in addition to story points, but benefit points (or similar metrics) are not in widespread use.
An IT system is meant for creating benefit for both service providers and service consumers. Often, disbenefit is created instead. You will study the phenomena of co-production of benefit and co-destruction into disbenefit in public service IT systems.

Over the recent years Generative Adversarial Models (GANs) have revolutionized the field of artificial intelligence (AI). Given a set of training data, the models can generate outcomes with striking similarities in properties to the training data. E.g. if the training data is a set of images, the models are able to generate new images with the same properties and look stunningly realistic. However the theoretical foundation of GANs is still immature and further understanding is needed. For example, GANs have been criticised to possibly only replicate a limited set of the properties in the training data.

For industries like healthcare and finance having the capacity to create high quality synthetic data that does not have the privacy constraints of normal data is extremely valuable. However, a key issue is to evaluate to what extent the synthetic data preserve privacy. For example, if a generated data point is identical to a normal data point, this obviously violates privacy.

Survey experiments in studies of political and electoral behavior using profiles of potential candidates are standard practice in political science. With this type of experiments, the researchers' goal is to test which characteristics voters value most in political candidates. One of the main challenges, however, is to generate realistic profiles to be tested. One of the important components of these profiles are the faces of candidates. A potential option is to use faces of real candidates, but this involves complex legal and ethical issues. Another option is to hire models to represent candidates, but this can be expensive and time-consuming.

The heart is the organ responsible for pumping blood around in your body. The heart consist of a tissue known as myocardium which is known to be a anisotropic, nonlinear, visco-elastic and nearly incompressible material. In order to create realistic models of the mechanics of the heart we would therefore need to incorporate these effects as well as appropriate boundary conditions.

Cardiac mechanics is traditionally modeled using partial differential equations (PDEs) which are solved with the finite element method. In this traditional approach one selects a discrete mesh that represents the geometry of the heart, and approximate the solution in the nodes of this mesh. Physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) is an alternative and relatively new method, which is based on deep learning and can be used as a surrogate to conventional finite element modeling. PINNs could be a promising technique to combine machine learning with traditional physics-based modeling.
