TWeD Talk: Context Modelling as a ServiceMarch 18, 2014
There's always something happening on Wednesday evenings in the Tetherless World!

TWeD Talk, Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 7pm ET, Winslow Building on the RPI Campus

Please join us as Tetherless Ph.D. student Yu "Momo" Chen leads us in a discussion of some of his current work investigating context modeling as a service.

ABSTRACT: In this talk Yu Chen will discuss some of his current research on context modeling as a service. As more and more portable devices, e.g. mobile phones, are equipped with sensors, there is a huge potential in understanding what can be revealed from patterns in the sensor data, as it is expected to be highly correlated to human activities and behaviors. However, this sensor data is not easy or intuitive to analyze, especially as the noisy time series data requires both intensive heuristics and mathematical analysis to reflect the real significance of the raw data. Based on his research, Yu argues that a web service that can be delegated by any application that interacts with sensors will be of great interest. In this talk, Yu will discuss work he has done that helps move this idea forward.
