Hu, Beibei, Chibani, Abdelghani and Amirat, Yacine (2012): Semantic context relevance assessment in urban ubiquitous environments. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 639-640.

We present a rule-based architecture (CIDA) for the provision of relevant information tailored to the user's current context, which consists of an ontology-based context model (ConAD) and a rule engine (RARE). ConAD is extensible to characterize the contextual situations in urban environments, and RARE supports the reconfiguration of the behavior of systems in different situations. Our preliminary evaluation results based on emergency scenarios show that CIDA is feasible for providing context-aware urban information services.

Chibani, Abdelghani, Schlenoff, Craig, Prestes, Edson and Amirat, Yacine (2012): Smart gadgets meet ubiquitous and social robots on the web. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 806-809.

Ubiquitous robotics, ambient Intelligence and cloud robotics are new research topics that start to gain popularity among the robotics community. The overlap that exists now between ubirobots and AmI makes their integration together within cloud computing valuable to create a hybrid physical-digital space rich with myriad of proactive intelligent services that enhance the quality and the way of our living and working. Indeed, there is no visible cooperation or synergies between ubiquitous computing and robots communities. This paper presents a workshop that is intended to facilitate discussions and build a bridge between these communities. Moreover we hope that satellite topics such as affective computing, semantic reasoning, and human-computer interaction will enhance such discussions and foster the research in this area. We believe that both communities can learn and benefit from their mutual experiences.

Sebbak, Faouzi, Chibani, Abdelghani, Amirat, Yacine, Benhammadi, Farid and Mokhtari, Aicha (2012): An evidential fusion approach for activity recognition under uncertainty in ambient intelligence environments. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 834-840.

In ambient intelligence environments, the information provided by robot's embedded sensors and physical or logical entities may be inaccurate and uncertain. The Dempster-Shafer evidence Theory (DST) gives a mathematical convenient framework for the evidential fusion representation and inference of uncertain information. However, DST yields counterintuitive results in high conflicting ambient intelligence situations. This paper aims to provide a new strategy to manage conflict in activity recognition process in the ambient intelligence applications. It addresses the challenge of uncertainty and proposes an evidential fusion model based on the management of conflicting situation to optimize decision making in activity recognition. The proposed approach gives intuitive interpretation for combining multiple sources in conflicting situations and avoids the problems of using The Dempster-Shafer rule of combination.

Prestes, Edson, Chibani, Abdelghani, Saffiotti, Alessandro, Schlenoff, Craig, Grard, Sbastien, Sanz, Ricardo, Barreto, Marcos E., Madhavan, Raj and Amirat, Yacine (2012): Towards an upper ontology and methodology for robotics and automation. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 873-882.

In this article, we present the ongoing efforts within the newly formed IEEE-RAS Working Group named Ontologies for Robotics and Automation. We focus in particular on one of the four subgroups that compose this working group, called the Upper Ontology/Methodology (UpOM) subgroup. As the name indicates, the aim of this subgroup is to develop an upper ontology and a methodology for ontology building and evaluation. This methodology will be used to coordinate the distributed development of domain specific ontologies by the other three subgroups, and to generate a global ontology that we hope will contribute to the standardization process of robotics and automation. This paper presents the composition, the envisioned methodology, and the future work of the UpOM subgroup. It also discusses some general aspects related to ontologies for the robotics and automation field, and to the efforts in standardizing them.

Chibani, Abdelghani, Amirat, Yacine, Mohammed, Samer, Hagita, Norihiro and Matson, Eric T. (2012): Future research challenges and applications of ubiquitous robotics. In: Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Uniquitous Computing 2012. pp. 883-891.

Ambient intelligence, ubiquitous and networked robots, cloud robotics, are new research hot topics that start to gain popularity among the robotics community. They enable robots to acquire richer functionalities and open the way for the composition of a variety of robotic services with three functions: semantic perception, reasoning and actuation. This paper introduces the recent challenges and future trends of these topics.
