A Knowledge-Driven Approach to Activity Recognition in Smart Homes
This paper introduces a knowledge-driven approach to real-time, continuous activity recognition based on multisensor data streams in smart homes. The approach goes beyond the traditional data-centric methods for activity ...
User-based Collaborative Filtering: Sparsity and Performance
(IOS Press, 2010-12-14)
It is generally assumed that all users in a dataset are equally adversely affected by data sparsity and hence addressing this problem should result in improved performance. However, although all users may be members of a ...
