Modeling and Using Context

List of Articles

A Context-Driven Data Visualization Engine for Improved Citizen Service and Government Performance

Every day, the US government creates and consumes significant amounts of data. Federal agencies are finally riding the wave of Big Data Analytics for solving problems such as improving citizen service. Domestic tranquility, customer satisfaction, transparency, and providing (...)

From Usable to Incentive-Building Energy Management Systems

Reducing energy consumption is an individual and collective challenge that requires people to be proactive and fully involved. However, most approaches and solutions to this problem promote automated and autonomous systems that take full control of the decisions. Although (...)

Supporting context on software applications: a survey on context engineering

Engineering context-aware applications, i.e. applications that are able to adapt their behavior according to context information, is a complex task. Not only is context a large and complex notion, but its support on software applications involves tackling multiple challenges (...)

Epistemological Contextualism from a Logical Point of View

This paper aims at presenting a logical framework capable of expressing epistemological contextualism. Epistemological contextualism relies upon the possibility of an indexical interpretation of the knowledge operator, according to which the truth conditions of knowledge (...)

The Cooperating Context Method

This article presents and evaluates a novel contextual approach called the Cooperating Context Method that can serve to synthesize complete narratives that are interesting and make sense to the human reader/listener. Exis-ting context-driven approaches are generally designed (...)

CxG-based simulation of Group Activity

The Contextual-Graph (CxG) formalism allows the representation of a task realization by an actor. The objective is to provide decision makers with a clear panorama of the different ways to realize a task (i.e. the practices), and thus of the implications of choosing one (...)

The Linguistic Realization of Contrastive Discourse Relations in Context: Contextualization and discourse common ground

This paper compares the contextualization and linguistic realization of contrastive discourse relations in monadic and dyadic editing tasks produced in an experimental setting. Participants were asked to produce a well-formed argumentative text based on a skeleton text (...)

Contexts in philosophy: pragmatic competence as filter

This programmatic paper is an attempt to connect some worries in the philosophy of language with some traditional views in artificial intelligence. After a short introduction to the notion of context in philosophy (§1), starting from the inventor of mathematical logic, (...)

Discovering Context for Real-World Events

Specifying the search space is an important step in designing multimedia annotation systems. With the large amount of data available from sensors and web services, context-aware approaches for pruning search spaces are becoming increasingly common. In these approaches, the (...)

Human Activity Recognition Using Place-based Decision Fusion in a Smart Home Context Management System

This paper describes the results of experiments where information about places is used in the recognition of activities in the home. We explore the use of place-specific activity recognition trained with supervised learning, coupled with a decision fusion step, for (...)
