Abstract

The development of ambient social applications brings challenges to aggregate information from heterogeneous sources, like users, physical environments, and available services. We propose a framework for aggregating information from different sources, and utilize a novel representation, Entity Notation (EN), as a starting point of connecting all information to knowledge-based systems, which offers good possibilities to support ambient social intelligence. In this paper, we present the framework, our EN representation, and an implementation of a map reminder service to demonstrate the usability of our framework.
