1 ORESTEIA IST 2000- 26091 Consortium King’s College National Technical University of Athens University of Milan ALTEC S.A. Imperial College London Queen’s University of Belfast Objectives (1) Enhanced decision-making by using: Attention (for filtering important information from background) ( … to allow for an awareness of their context … … to allow for adaptive behavior ….* ) Data Fusion (how to combine and interpret many pieces of information into a coherent picture) ( … to look how collections of artefacts can act together, so as to produce new behavior and new functionality* ) Adaptation to the User (System learns from user and behaves according to his/her needs) ( … to ensure that people’s experience in the DC environments is coherent and engaging*) (2) Power generation and communication for personal artefacts ( … to accommodate trade-offs between networking, computing and power consumption* ) *Copied from the Disappearing Computer Information. ftp://ftp.cordis.lu/pub/ist/docs/fetdc-4.pdf.
2 OUTPUTS Artefact INPUTS Attention Controller The input signals have irregular patterns… Data History Hey! You must work faster Self Evaluator Attention Signal I shouldn’t produce these outputs in this environment … Irregular inputs Hardware failure Context Switch Project Vision: Attention My battery is low! Load a different context profile Get samples of not important info less frequently
3 Project Vision: Data Fusion “Clever Space” Artefact data Which of these data shall I need? Intelligent Artefact You can make use of the two bottom Artefacts “WORLD MODEL” AGENT
4 Project Vision: Micropower Generation Why not creating your own micropower generation schemes? … or use alternative wireless communication protocols? Health care requires high sampling rates and many quantization levels Ubiquitous computing is based on low power consumption structures
5 Project Impact Steve, you must take your medicine! 24 o C 19 o C 25 o C I have fever 27 o C 26 o C 32 o C fatigue stress Hey, take a break! Priority Queue 27 o C
6 You are driving insecurely! Ice patches on the road! Good morning Steve! Would you like the usual breakfast for Friday? Project Larger Picture Attention Control based Sensor Signals Context Switch and Adaptation to User Preferences Visual Attention for locating Humans Someone enters the room! Is he an authorized person? Should I load his profile?
8 Project Results Feature Extraction from Biomedical Data / Health Status Estimation Physiological and Psychological Data Collection in Car driving Conditions Context Sensitive Decision Making Architecture
9 Project final Outcome Goal oriented computational model Context capture and User Profile Creation architectures Power generation prototypes and communication protocols Attention control sensor monitoring policies Visual Attention for Locating Humans
