Context-aware activity recognition through a combination of ontological and statistical reasoning

Riboni and Bettini have proposed a techinique for human activity recognition using ontologies and ontological reasoning combined with statistical inferencing [1]. The technique does not relies on large amount of training data which is difficult to obtain in applications such as rehabilitation systems, chronic disease management or monitoring of the elderly. [1] Riboni, Daniele, and […]

A Distributed Reasoning Engine Ecosystem for Semantic Context-Management in Smart Environments

Context information inference consumes a lot of time when dealing with large amount of data. This situation is common in modern ubiquitous computing when there are a lot of sensors and devices available. Therefore, Almeida and López-de-Ipiña have proposed an agent-based system architecture to distribute the context reasoning problem into smaller parts in order to […]
