Semantics-based platform for context-aware and personalized robot interaction in the internet of robotic things

Robots are moving from well-controlled lab environments to the real world, where an increasing number of environments has been transformed into smart sensorized IoT spaces. Users will expect these robots to adapt to their preferences and needs, and …

Subset reasoning for event-based systems

In highly dynamic domains such as the Internet of Things (IoT), smart industries, smart manufacturing, pervasive health or social media, data is being continuously generated. By combining this generated data with background knowledge and performing …

Towards optimizing hospital patient transports by automatically identifying interpretable causes of delays

The continuous financial pressure on hospitals forces them to rethink various workflows. We focus on optimizing hospital transports, within the hospital, as they count up to 30% of the overall hospital cost. In this paper, we discuss a self-learning …

Sharing health data in Belgium : a home care case study using the Vitalink platform

In 2013, the Flemish Government launched the Vitalink platform. This initiative focuses on the sharing of health and welfare data to support primary healthcare. In this paper, the objectives and mission of the Vitalink initiative are discussed. …

Streaming MASSIF : cascading reasoning for efficient processing of iot data streams

In the Internet of Things (IoT), multiple sensors and devices are generating heterogeneous streams of data. To perform meaningful analysis over multiple of these streams, stream processing needs to support expressive reasoning capabilities to infer …

Towards a cascading reasoning framework to support responsive ambient-intelligent healthcare interventions

In hospitals and smart nursing homes, ambient-intelligent care rooms are equipped with many sensors. They can monitor environmental and body parameters, and detect wearable devices of patients and nurses. Hence, they continuously produce data …

The MASSIF platform : a modular and semantic platform for the development of flexible IoT services

In the Internet of Things (IoT), data-producing entities sense their environment and transmit these observations to a data processing platform for further analysis. Applications can have a notion of context awareness by combining this sensed data, or …

The OCarePlatform : a context-aware system to support independent living

Background: Currently, healthcare services, such as institutional care facilities, are burdened with an increasing number of elderly people and individuals with chronic illnesses and a decreasing number of competent caregivers. Objectives: To relieve …
