ASTRA is a set of software tools for mediated interpersonal awareness, addressing the need to stay in touch with family and friends or the need to be reassured regarding their well-being. The software provides a service oriented architecture, user tools, and applications that support communities to appropriate Pervasive Awareness applications.
The ATRACO Project is a prototype implementation of a trusted ambient ecology system that runs and manages activity spheres in an Ambient Intelligence Space. Activity spheres are realized by automatically discovering, selecting, and adapting smart devices (artefacts) existing in the space, according to user's preferences, customs, and activities. OWL ontologies are used for modeling user profile, devices, activities, and goal descriptions. Abstract plans are bound to specific devices, methods, and values through semantic matching.
Wintermute is an intelligent framework of applications and libraries that uses neural networking to learn about its host. A pseudo-langauge engine that permits translations and grammar rulesets of any language to be incorporated into the system, and database downloads of different sets of data combine to provide a virtual self-thinking assistant that can be used to perform tasks like dictation to a text editor, and more complex tasks such as sorting of documents depending on the time of day, or automation of other routine tasks. It should be noted that Wintermute itself is a meta-project. It encompasses a large array of currently existing and potential produced projects.
myKnowledgeExplorer (mKE) is an intelligent knowledge base assistant. All communication is in a user-friendly, English-like language called mKR. mKR is designed to help human beings work more intelligently. mKE command line options include language definitions for RDF, OWL, CYC, and SUMO. mKR scripts may include embedded calls to the Unix shell. mKR gives special emphasis to context hierarchies, genus-differentia definitions, n-ary relations, questions, and action/methods.
