Ideas about context

July 29th, 2008 No comments

I’ve been reading lots of things recently about wearable computing, but previously I was reading around context and situation awareness, had a number of thoughts based on the ideas I read. Alot of my more recent reading has also referenced some of this material, so it seems  it may be useful, and I have written a short document about how I understand it at the moment.

Ideas About Context

Supervisor Meeting 17 July 2008

July 17th, 2008 No comments

Met with paddy this morning to talk about where to go from here.

I’ve been reading around Context, Privacy, Infrastructure, Management etc. in relation to wearable computing. There are a number of texts that mention it, but nothing (so far) that has dealt with it directly.

Paddy suggested reading and using the idea from http://infoblog.stanford.edu/ that you take the main assumptions about an area, list them out, then change one or two of them, and see what happens. (yet to read artical)

Also, paddy suggested to have a think about stream processing.

I should also look at the locations/conferences/groups that are doing these thing – i.e. find papers that are newer, and may not be highly cited.

Suggested conferences to look into:

MobHoc, MobiCom, Middleware, etc

Paddy also mentioned that reading can expand to fill all available time, so don’t let!
