Summary form only given. With the advance of sensor enabled smart phones simple context awareness has become a mainstream feature. Commercial apps routinely use location knowledge for the delivery of customized information or fostering social interaction. There are also scores of apps that analyse modes of locomotion for purposes such as calories calorie expenditure assessment or exercise support. On the other hand, more detailed recognition of human activities and complex situations has so far had very little impact on real-life applications. That talk will look at factors that prevent wide spread use of complex activity recognition and discuss research that works to mitigate those factors. Topics will include working with dynamic, opportunistic sensor configurations, collaborative recognition and new sensing modalities.
