An Architecture for Context Prediction


Today’s information appliances are usually very powerful, featuringlocal storage and processing power, communication technology andsupporting many different applications. They are either mobile, likelaptop computers, handheld devices, mobile phones or wearables, orfixed, like TV set-top boxes, home entertainment centers or evenwhole rooms equipped with various interacting devices; but most ofthem have various hardware components that can be used as sensorsfor querying the environment. By exploiting these sensors, it ispossible to make devices context aware and thus adaptive to the currentuser’s situation. This paper presents the basic structure of a frameworkwhich eases the implementation of context aware applications by providingthe current and future, predicted context.
