Reasoning about uncertain contexts in pervasive computing environments

A. Ranganathan, J. Al-Muhtadi, R.H. Campbell
2004 IEEE pervasive computing  
A prototype pervasive computing infrastructure, Gaia, allows applications and services to reason about uncertainty using mechanisms such as probabilistic logic, fuzzy logic, and Bayesian networks.  ...  Our model represents any piece of information whose truth value is potentially uncertain as a predicate.  ...  Reasoning about uncertainty has helped make components in our pervasive computing environment more robust and more capable of adapting to changing dynamics.  ...

A Unified Context Model: Bringing Probabilistic Models to Context Ontology [chapter]

Binh An Truong, YoungKoo Lee, Sung Young Lee
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Ontology is a promising tool to model and reason about context information in pervasive computing environment. However, ontology does not support representation and reasoning about uncertainty.  ...  In this paper, we present an ongoing research on context modeling which follows the ontology-based approach while supports representation and reasoning about uncertain context.  ...  as follows: o The generic ontology is a high level ontology which captures general context knowledge about physical world in pervasive computing environment. o The domain-specific ontologies are a collection  ...
