    For many years, pervasive computing research has explored the potential benefits of creating a connection between the virtual world of the Internet, and the physical world we live in. The Near Field Communication (NFC) standard might, at last, be the technology that makes this vision-sometimes referred to as the Internet of things-a ubiquitous reality. View full abstract»

    Equipping a machine with emotional sensitivity is considered a major step toward more human-like man-machine interaction. Because emotions are subjective, designing experiments to acquire ground truth data for training and testing emotion-recognition components is challenging. This is all the more true for pervasive computing environments, where users are exposed to a more diverse of stimuli than ... View full abstract»
