SemaKoDE: Hybrid System for Knowledge Discovery in Sensor-Based Smart Environments

  • Stefan Negru
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7387)


This article describes a conceptual hybrid architecture for a knowledge discovery system, able to automatically annotate, reason, classify and operate with sensor data. The adoption of semantic web technologies to enrich sensor and link data represents an adequate methodology that facilitates the processes of reasoning, classification and other types of automation. We discussed a system deployment scenario in the context of e-health.
