    Since April 2008, a "digital inclusion" research cluster gathering researchers and professional practitioners from British universities and industry has focused on discussing and developing methodologies to increase the accessibility of digital systems to "digitally disenfranchised groups", including special needs and elderly users. We here report on the Ontologies and Interactive Systems internat... View full abstract»

    The World Wide Web (Web) is a visually complex, dynamic, multimedia system that can be inaccessible to people with visual impairments. SADIe uses semantic annotations of a Web site's Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) to drive a transformation process that can improve access to content for visually impaired users. The original process of annotating the CSS involved the use of an upper ontology, extended ... View full abstract»

    The mental health care sector has been slow to adopt technology. However pressure on services from worsening mental health trends and a pressing need to develop innovative approaches to improved services has led to increased activity in this area. This paper discusses potential uses of ontologies in the development of interactive systems to support mental health interventions. Different aspects of... View full abstract»

    In the last few years the use of medical and biomedical ontologies has increased considerably. It is very common to find applications and semantic webs using this kind of ontologies and a large number of papers have been written explaining why ontologies are useful in these fields. In this paper the use of ontologies for psychology and its benefits is discussed and a first ontology for obesity tre... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces AccessOnto, an ontology-based toolkit for accessibility requirements specification primarily designed to provide a repository of accessibility guidelines and plus a specification language intended to help software developers to incorporate accessibility requirements in their user requirements document. Currently specification of accessibility requirements is largely based on ... View full abstract»

    The ambient intelligence paradigm has evolved significantly during the last few years and aims at developing context-aware and adaptive systems that enable people to use personalized services. Context-awareness, semantics enriched services and adaptivity are among the features that characterize ambient intelligence systems. In this paper, we describe an ontology-based user model that captures and ... View full abstract»

  • Put the User in Control: Ontology-Driven Meta-level Interaction for Pervasive Environments

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):51 - 56
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (351 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Pervasive computing environments are complex to interact with due to the dynamic assembly of interaction resources and the need to adapt to sudden changes in the environment configuration. When the complexity of such an environment is masked by the underlying computing system, end-users are often left with limited or no control over their interactive space. This brings up the need to make users aw... View full abstract»

  • Ontologizing Metadata for Assistive Technologies - The OASIS Repository

    This paper discusses the design challenges encountered when building an ontology repository for an application framework devoted to assistive technologies that can be browsed and queried in a highly heterogeneous and expressive way. As a main vehicle to achieve this goal we propose to use metadata and meta-reasoning. We analyze how metadata can be used in the context of open repositories of ontolo... View full abstract»

  • Interacting with an Ontology to Explore Historical Domains

    The use of ontologies enables semantically driven access to a variety of digital resources. In this paper, we illustrate how an ontology can be exploited to provide structured access to Web-based resources. We present a case study in history of science that illustrates how to conceptualise and reason about a historical domain by taking a systematic approach to modelling time and events, based on e...

  • Ontology-Based Multidimensional Personalization Modeling for the Automatic Generation of Mashups in Next-Generation Portals

    Recently, the combination of portal and mashup technology has gained some attention. Portals were originally designed as single points of access to the information and applications distributed across the enterprise. However, due to the increasing number of resources available through portals, they have gained a new challenging goal: To provide users with the information tailored to their individua...

    Blogs have emerged as a powerful way to convey and spread any sort of ideas. Thousands of people write daily in these on-line diaries and hold a captive audience. Furthermore information spread in blogs provide an online laboratory to analyze how brands, trends, ideas and information spread through social communities in the Internet. To support this analysis, in this paper describes an ontology fo... View full abstract»

  • Ontological Dimensions Applied to Natural Interaction

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (279 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This work shows a conceptual model required for natural interaction, that is, imitating human behavior through interaction. This sort of Ontology is characterized by a set of services it should provide, for which both domain knowledge and reasoning mechanisms should be attained. However, special requirements and tasks for which this model is intended force a complete analysis and the design of an ... View full abstract»

    Several ontologies attempting to combine biomedical data using various strategies in order to overcome issues of scope and differing levels of granularity have emerged. However, these ontologies are little used in distributed applications. This is attributed to both the lack of knowledge about user needs for such systems and the absence of a general framework to assess their relative suitability f... View full abstract»
