Context Context Context: How Our Blindness to Context Cripples Even the Smartest Organizations
Context plays an essential role in FIS-based CLP research, as it defines in which scenarios the findings of the FIS-based CLP models are applicable, which implies that, under changed contexts, existing models cannot be used without some adaptation.
Accordingly, projects having identical values to key context attributes were grouped together, and the project nature (building type) context variable was used to name the four unique contexts.
The already defined adaptation services and their required contexts (defined by the business expert of the enterprise) are presented in Figure (7).
Also, we will look to extend our approach in order to handle with the service composition issue in unknown contexts.
However, context-privacy preservation for smartphones is not an easy task because there exist high temporal correlations among human contexts and behaviors in daily life, and these temporal correlations can be used by adversaries to infer the hidden sensitive information.
To cope with the temporal correlations between contexts, Gotz et al.
The context data which is produced by the process of providing intelligence services by sensors and intelligent devices in the Internet of Things is massive and valuable, because the context data can be used to affect the human's service experience in many different ways.
Context fusion is a process to obtain the high-level context by dealing with the multidomain low-level context (which consists of monitoring, sensing data, and so on) based on some methods and prior knowledge.
In this investigation, a general architecture is designed to integrate the heterogeneous sensing techniques and handle the context information for computing service provisioning toward context-aware automation and decision optimisation in the mobile applications.
Section 3 and section 4 provide a general context-aware computing architecture and the technical solutions, including context modelling method and context-aware function customisation strategy.
