Energy saving is one of the most challenging aspects of modern ambient intelligence technologies, for both domestic and business usages. In this paper we show how to combine Ambient Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence techniques to solve the problem of scheduling a set of devices under a given set of constraints, like limits to the maximal energy usage(More)
Nowadays the problem of energy consumption is becoming a pressing problem. We present an innovative system named Elettra able to allow people to monitor and control energy consumption in one or more buildings. For improving Elettra we introduce different methods taken from ambient intelligence. Through these methods we can infer energy consumption,(More)
Conflicting rules and rules with exceptions are very common in natural language specification to describe the behaviour of devices operating in a real-world context. This is common exactly because those specifications are processed by humans, and humans apply common sense and strategic reasoning about those rules. In this paper, we deal with the challenge(More)
Social Network Analysis is employed widely as a means to compute the probability that a given message flows through a social network. This approach is mainly grounded upon the correct usage of three basic graph-theoretic measures: degree centrality, closeness centrality and betweeness centrality. We show that, in general, those indices are not adapt to(More)
Hiding true personality behind a façade is one of the basic tricks adopted by humans who live double lives for illegal purposes. In particular terrorists have historically adopted the protocol of a façade behaviour coupled with a second life consisting mainly in illegal activities and their planning. Nowadays a few cases of behaviours that hide a dangerous(More)
