24 computer Published by the IEEE Computer Society 0018-9162/13/$31.00 © 2013 IEEE creates challenges with enormous technical, societal, economic, and political consequences. Consequently, a wide range of researchers from academia and industry, as well as businesses, government agencies, and cities, are exploring this exciting technology from three main(More)
In an assistive environment (AE), where dependant users are living together, predicting future user activity is a challenging task and in the same time useful to anticipate critical situation and provide on time assistance. The present paper analyzes prerequisites for user-centred prediction of future activities and presents an algorithm for autonomous(More)
This paper outlines an approach that we are taking for elder-care applications in the smart home, involving cognitive errors and their compensation. Our approach involves high level modeling of daily activities of the elderly by breaking down these activities into smaller units, which can then be automatically recognized at a low level by collections of(More)
In this paper we propose an efficient and incremental plan recognition method for cognitive assistance. We design our unique method based on graph matching and heuristic chaining rules in order to deal with interleaved and sequential activities. The finding of this research work is to be applied to predict abnormal behavior of the users, and optimize(More)
This paper is an effort to electronically connect everyday physical objects so that communication to all devices can be centralized and handled without any hassles. A centralized control is setup which is not connected to any outside network thus, making it completely secure from intrusion. XMPP is Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol that will allow(More)
Context is considered by research community in pervasive computing, and particularly in context awareness, to be subject to the available environmental sensors to retrieve the suitable information to the user. For example, the users context is based on location information or even based on other deterministic information, such as time (morning, evening,(More)
