In this paper, we propose a prototype of smart furniture for the smart home—“a magic mirror table”. The proposed system has a camera to capture the viewer’s facial expression. By analyzing the expressions, the system is able to determine the emotion of the viewer. If the viewer is in a negative emotion, the system then speaks positive sentences and plays(More)
As the use of smartphones become popular, people heavily depend on smartphone applications to deal with their social activities. For this reason, traditional message texting between mobile applications does not fulfill the versatile requirements of social networking.

This paper describes a smart home system consisting of Smart Door Porch and a home portal. Smart Door Porch uses cameras, an RFID (radio-frequency identification) reader, and a touch panel for home security as well as the at-home awareness of each family member. The home portal uses Open Services Gateway initiative (OSGi) framework and Java EE as the(More)
The power of big data gives us an unprecedented chance to understand, analyze, and recreate the world, while open data ensures that power be shared and widely exploited. Open and big data has become the emerging topics for researchers and governments. Thus, the related privacy issues also become an emerging urgent problem. In this work, we propose a(More)
As the development for ubiquitous computing, services for smart home will not only be limited at the household space. The scope of services will stride beyond the geographical constraint, and the service will supports the activities of each home member even out of home. Services based on each home member's schedule will form a type of calendar centered(More)

Although smartphone provides many communicative applications for real-time voice or video telephony, it still faces the social behaviour missing problem. Without face to face interaction, people may fail to detect the(More)
Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) has been proposed as a technique for improving separation of concerns in software and becomes a popular research topic. The AOP language bindings with implementation framework are generally available which allow you to directly use AOP with several programming languages such as Ruby, Squeak, Smalltalk, C, C++,(More)
Nursing scheduling problem (NSP) has been verified NP-Complete. The Nursing scheduling is a dynamic process interacting with parties iteratively to reflect the revised expectations and constrained rules. It is an orchestrating process which needs not only the scheduling algorithms and shifting methodologies but also the interaction and coordination. Based(More)
