SEI-HCII Collaboration Explores Context-Aware Computing for Soldiers

Dr. Anind Dey

"About two years ago we got some funding to look at how can we more effectively share information in a group of soldiers. We developed a data model that would encapsulate the mission, role, and task of those soldiers. As we started sharing information, we started realizing that we can queue on the numerous sensors in mobile devices to do an even better job of delivering information.  "

An Introduction to Context-Aware Computing

"My take on context awareness is it is this ability to adapt how an application works with knowledge of what is going on around it. That is, who is using it, information about that individual, information about where they are, what they are doing, and what their preferences are. It is all this information about context of use, and then using that information to adapt how an application works."

Tactical Cloudlets

Grace Lewis

"We compared the five cloudlet provisioning mechanisms in terms of—from a quantitative prospective—payload size, energy consumption, and also application-ready-time, which we define as the moment from which I say I need this capability until when the cloudlet says the capability is ready. In addition to that, we did a qualitative comparison because, again it is not just about the numbers."

HTML5 for Mobile Apps at the Edge

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Grace Lewis

"HTML5 is receiving a lot of attention from developers these days because one of the promises of HTML5 is portability: the fact that you write the application once in HTML5, and all you really need to run it is a browser, right? You can run it on an Android device. You can run it on an iPhone device. "

"The capability itself just went live last April, and all of these alert originators are now adding this to their systems to try and understand what capability they need, and how they can integrate it with what they're already using. "
