Human Activity Recognition Models in Ontology Networks

  title={Human Activity Recognition Models in Ontology Networks},
  author={Luca Buoncompagni and Syed Yusha Kareem and F. Mastrogiovanni},
  journal={IEEE transactions on cybernetics},
We present Arianna⁺, a framework to design networks of ontologies for representing knowledge enabling smart homes to perform human activity recognition online. In the network, nodes are ontologies allowing for various data contextualisation, while edges are general-purpose computational procedures elaborating data. Arianna⁺ provides a flexible interface between the inputs and outputs of procedures and statements, which are atomic representations of ontological knowledge. Arianna⁺ schedules… Expand

Reasoning with smart objects’ affordance for personalized behavior monitoring in pervasive information systems
A novel hybrid reasoning framework to capture fine-grained interaction with smart objects considering the specific features of individuals is proposed, tackling a particularly challenging issue: how to recognize early behavioral symptoms of mild cognitive impairment in subjects with physical disabilities.

Probabilistic ontology based activity recognition in smart homes using Markov Logic Network
The research presented in this paper introduces an innovative approach in AR system design that integrates probabilistic inference with the represented domain ontology through Markov Logic Network (MLN), which is a statistical relational learning approach. Expand
CRAFFT: an activity prediction model based on Bayesian networks
An activity prediction model using Bayesian networks together with a novel two-step inference process to predict both the next activity features and the nextactivity label is proposed and an approach to predict the start time of the nextActivity is proposed which is based on modeling the relative start times of the predicted activity using the continuous normal distribution and outlier detection.

SVM-Based Multimodal Classification of Activities of Daily Living in Health Smart Homes: Sensors, Algorithms, and First Experimental Results
The aim is to quantify criteria such as the international activities of daily living (ADL) or the French Autonomie Gerontologie Groupes Iso-Ressources (AGGIR) scales, by automatically classifying the different ADL performed by the subject during the day. Expand
Tracking Activities in Complex Settings Using Smart Environment Technologies.
This paper looks at approaches to perform real-time recognition of Activities of Daily Living, and enhances other related research efforts to develop approaches that are effective when activities are interrupted and interleaved. Expand
Pellet: A practical OWL-DL reasoner
Pellet is the first sound and complete OWL-DL reasoner with extensive support for reasoning with individuals, user-defined datatypes, and debugging support for ontologies. Expand
The Description Logic Handbook: Theory, Implementation, and Applications
This new edition of The Description Logic Handbook provides a thorough account of the subject, covering all aspects of research in this field, namely: theory, implementation, and applications. Expand
Ontology-Based Framework for the Automatic Recognition of Activities of Daily Living Using Class Expression Learning Techniques
This work proposes the use of class expression learning (CEL), an ontology-based data mining technique, for the recognition of ADL, a technique based on combining the entities in the ontology, trying to find the expressions that best describe those activities. Expand
newNECTAR: Collaborative active learning for knowledge-based probabilistic activity recognition
A collaborative active learning method exploiting users’ feedback to refine correlations among sensor events and activity types that are initially extracted from a high-level ontology, and mine temporal patterns of sensor events that are frequently generated by the execution of specific activities. Expand
Smart homes and home health monitoring technologies for older adults: A systematic review
The level of technology readiness for smart homes and home health monitoring technologies is still low and the highest level of evidence found was in a study that supported home health technologies for use in monitoring activities of daily living, cognitive decline, mental health, and heart conditions in older adults with complex needs.
