  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Trinity College Dublin, Dept. of Computer Science, 1999)
    We are currently witnessing a convergence of several threads of technology and business imperatives. The idea of a virtual enterprise (VE) – a business built from both organizationally and geographically distributed units ...
  • Murdoch, Olga; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (19th Irish conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science (AICS) 2008, 27-28 August, 2008, Cork, 2008)
    Stock photo libraries are the most common means for publishers and advertisers to find images for their media. Searching for the perfect photo can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. This is because searching is often ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Stevenson, Graeme; Knox, Stephen; Nixon, Paddy (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Pervasive systems present the need to interpret large quantities of data from many sources. Context models support developers working with such data by providing a shared representation of the environment on which to base ...
  • Ye, Juan; Clear, Adrian K.; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (Springer-Verlag, 2009)
    Through advances in sensing technology, a huge amount of data is available to context-aware applications. A major challenge is extracting features of this data that correlate to high-level human activities. Time, while ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Treating autonomic systems as solving individual, isolated problems misses the opportunity to consider adaptation as an object of study in its own right. We propose a grand challenge of supporting adaptation in an open ...
  • Williamson, Graham; Cellai, Davide; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2009)
    Many modern network applications, including sensor networks and MANETs, have dynamic topologies that reflect processes occurring in the outside world. These dynamic processes are a challenge to traditional information ...
  • Coyle, Lorcan; Neely, Steve; Rey, Gaetan; Stevenson, Graeme; Sullivan, Mark; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Kaist Press, 2007)
    Systems for home automation can make a vital contribution to the wellbeing of individuals requiring moderate amounts of support for day-to-day living. Existing systems suffer both from competing and often closed standards ...
  • Clear, Adrian K.; Shannon, Ross; Holland, Thomas; Quigley, Aaron; Dobson, Simon; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2009)
    One of the key challenges faced when developing context- aware pervasive systems is to capture the set of inputs that we want a system to adapt to. Arbitrarily specifying ranges of sensor values to respond to will lead ...
  • Knox, Stephen; Clear, Adrian K.; Shannon, Ross; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon; Quigley, Aaron; Nixon, Paddy (2007)
    Context-aware systems that rely on mobile devices for user interaction must address the low bandwidth of both communications and more importantly the user’s limited attention, which will typically be split between several ...
  • Knox, Stephen; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligenc, 2010)
    Pervasive computing requires the ability to detect user activity in order to provide situation-specific services. Case-based reasoning can be used for activity recognition by using sensor data obtained from the environment. ...
  • Dobson, Simon (Springer-verlang, 2007)
    Ambient intelligence involves synthesising data from a range of sources in order to exhibit meaningful adaptive behaviour without explicit user direction, driven by inputs from largely independent devices and data sources. ...
