Activity Context Representation: Techniques and Languages
Papers from the 2011 AAAI Workshop
Lokendra Shastri, Workshop Chair
Pervasive context-aware computing technologies are essential enablers for next-generation applications for the digital workplace, consumer electronics, research, education, government, and health-care. Context-aware cognitive support requires activity and context information to be captured and, ever more often, moved across devices — securely, efficiently, and with multidevice interoperability.
This workshop intends to lay the groundwork for techniques to represent context within activity models using a synthesis of HCI/CSCW and AI approaches to reduce demands on people, such as the cognitive load inherent in activity/context switching, and enhancing human and device performance.
