—Increasingly, experts and interested laypeople are turning to the explosion of online data to form and explore hypotheses about relationships between public health intervention strategies and their possible impacts. We have engaged in a multi-year collaboration to use and design semantic techniques and tools to support the current and next generation of(More)
This study aims to develop PicLight, a user-centered lighting control interface based on the behavior of photo editing as an analogy for controlling light. The PicLight application allows users to takes photos of a space, then uses those photos to display simulations of lighting scenarios through filter effects, providing users with guidance for easy(More)
We demonstrate an early version of a semantic web tool, Global Health Explorer (GHX), that can be used to conduct public health surveillance using Twitter. Our infrastructure can use any controlled vocabulary to extract term uses in Twitter and supports hypothesis formation and exploration of data sets using visual analysis. The resulting data, gathered in(More)
Preface Two major challenges to the use of digitally encoded biomedical data for improving health are its distributed nature and lack of harmonization [1]. Semantic technologies, including ontologies, terminologies, Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs), and the Resource Description Framework (RDF), are key to addressing these challenges. By enabling the(More)
This study aims to derive context-based lighting setup presets in residential space by exploring the multilateral relationships among household activities, affects, and lighting setups. Three procedures were involved: First, sixty affective words were evaluated through which seven affect factors were extracted to facilitate the evaluation of colored(More)
