In this paper, we propose an intelligent method, named the Novelty Detection Power Meter (NodePM), to detect novelties in electronic equipment monitored by a smart grid. Considering the entropy of each device monitored, which is calculated based on a Markov chain model, the proposed method identifies novelties through a machine learning algorithm. To this(More)
Computer systems are a part of everyday life, since they influence human behavior and stimulate changes in the emotional states of the users. The assessment of users’ emotions during their interaction with computer systems can help to provide tailorable website interfaces and better recommendations systems. However, emotions are complex and difficult to(More)
