Now these days, much research has been carried out on context-aware computing that is an important field in the area of ubiquitous computing, which offers a pervasive vision to implement a smart system by connecting computers, sensors and other peripherals in wired or unwired fashion. The main focus of this paper is on context modeling to design a real-time face recognition system for ubiquitous computing. In this research, a real-time framework with the combining concepts of context-awareness and genetic algorithm referred as real-time genetic algorithm (RGA) is proposed that meets the characteristics of context model and developments of a ubiquitous application. This framework is implemented on a real-time environment and a recognizable success is notified.
