Ubiquitous User Modeling for Situated Interaction

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2109)


The main contribution of my doctoral proposal will be the design of a standardized and expandable XML-based User Modeling Ontology Language, which enables ubiquitous systems to communicate about user models. The second contribution will be the investigation of combining simple partial user models from the point of view of the user modeling ontology language, as well as the specific example domain of speech and manual input, which will be realized by object-oriented dynamic Bayesian networks.
