Time Handling for Real-time Progressive Activity Recognition
In a dense sensor-based smart home (SH), a significant challenge is to segment the sensor data stream in real-time to continuously support progressive activity recognition (AR). In this paper, we evaluate an approach that ...
Situation, Activity and Goal Awareness in Ubiquitous Computing
(Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2012-05)
The paper is a visionary essay that introduces the background, elaborates the basic concepts and presents the authors' views and insights into SAGAware research in pervasive computing based on the latest state of the art ...
A Novel Approach for the Population and Adaptation of Ontology-Based User Profiles
User personalisation within context-aware applications has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. The use of ontologies enriched with semantics has enabled the creation of highly relevant user profiles, which have ...
Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence. Context-Awareness and Context-Driven Interaction
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence, UCAmI 2013, held in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, in December 2013. The 46 research papers ...
Web service discovery based on user requirements.
Stopping Criterion impact on Pure Random Search Optimisation for Intelligent Device Distribution
The number of intelligent environment implementations such as smart homes is set to increase dramatically within the next 40 years. This is predicted using forecasts of demographic data which indicates an expansion of the ...
Proceedings of the 2011 international workshop on Situation Activity and Goal Awareness(SAGAware2011)
Ubiquitous computing aims to enable and support anywhere, anytime, context-aware applications. Sensing, interpretation and integration of events, behaviours and environmental states are key to the success of such ubiquitous ...
An Ontology Based Context Management System for Smart Environments
(XPS (Xpert Publishing Services), 2012-09)
This paper proposes an ontology-enabled system for context management for smart environments. Central to the system is ontological sensor modelling, which attaches metadata and meaning to sensor data, thus supporting data ...
Engineering Knowledge for Assistive Living
This paper introduces a knowledge based approach to assistive living in smart homes. It proposes a system architecture that makes use of knowledge in the lifecycle of assistive living. The paper describes ontology based ...
Does Age Make a Difference in the Behaviour of Online Social Network Users
The online interactions and behaviours of older and younger users have not yet been fully explored. The aim of this study is to present an analysis of the behavioural differences of younger (15-30) and older (50+) users ...
