1、Prof. Dr. Artur Lugmayr报告题目：Ubiquitous Media and Their Technologies
Ubiquitous media are new, and they require a re-thinking of the media landscape. Technology developed for taking moving pictures, enabled the media form ‘motion pictures’. In the case of ubiquitous media, ubiquitous technology lets a new media form ‘ubiquitous media’ emerge. Thus, as valid for any new form of media, ubiquitous technologies let many new types of services and content forms emerge. This talk especially focuses on the technology part, enabling ubimedia. Different technological solutions and systems are presented and analyzed.
Prof. Dr. Artur Lugmayr describes himself as a creative thinker and his scientific work is situated between art and science. Starting from July 2009 he is full-professor for entertainment and media production management at the Department of Business Information Management and Logistics at the Tampere University of Technology (TUT): EMMi — Entertainment and Media Production Management. His vision can be expressed as to create media experiences on future emerging media technology platforms. He is the head and founder of the New AMbient MUltimedia (NAMU) research group at the Tampere University of Technology (Finland) which is part of the Finnish Academy Centre of Excellence of Signal Processing from 2006 to 2011.
2、Doc.George Onyango Okeyo报告题目：Ontology-Based Activity Modelling, Recognition and Learning in Smart Homes
George is a second year PhD student and a member of the Smart Environments Research Group (SERG) in the School of Computing and Mathematics of the University of Ulster (UU) in the UK. He received his BSc. from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) in 2001, and his MSc from the University of Nairobi in 2007 respectively in Kenya. George is also a Lecturer of Computer Science. George worked as a Teaching Assistant in JKUAT IT Centre from 2001 to 2003, and as a Teaching Assistant at the Institute of Computer Science and Information Technology (ICSIT) in JKUAT from 2003 to 2007. Since then, he has been a Lecturer at the Department of Computing, in the Institute of Computer Science and Information Technology (ICSIT) in JKUAT. George’s research interests span a range of areas that include: agent based computing, knowledge representation and reasoning, decision support, semantic technologies and smart environments.
In this talk a brief introduction to the Smart Environment Research Group (SERG) in the School of Computing and Mathematics at the University of Ulster will be given. This will cover the major research topics and activities undertaken by the Group as well as the team and resources available.
Following this, the speech concentrates on emantic smart homes (SSH). George will describe the SSH rationale of applying semantic technologies to ambient assisted living (AAL), outline the overall framework and discuss key components and enabling technologies. Specifically, ontology-based activity modelling, recognition, and learning will be discussed in details.
