[In this chapter we clarify the motivations and purpose of this work. Initially, in the next section, in order to explain what instigated our research, we present a brief overview about Ambient Intelligence, the research area in which lies the object of this work. In Sect. 1.2 we discuss, in...
[In this chapter we present the main concepts necessary to comprehend this work. In the first section, we describe our motivating scenario, to which we will refer along this work, in order to exemplify and clarify our approach. In Sect. 2.2, we discuss commonly found characteristics of Ambient...
[In this chapter, we present several different approaches for distributed reasoning in AmI environments and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these systems.]
[This chapter presents our proposal of a process to perform decentralized reasoning. In the first section we explain the system model on which we base our proposal, which is formalized and explained in the following sections. Finally, we discuss design strategies to implement the service.]
[This chapter presents our proposal of an algorithm and protocol that implement the cooperative reasoning process, according with the design strategies discussed in the last chapter.]
[This chapter shows how the strategy proposed in the previous chapter works for a realistic scenario, such as the one described in Sect. 2.1. We present two different examples, a client query (synchronous interaction) and a client subscription (asynchronous interaction). For both cases we assume...
[In this chapter we describe the Decentralized Reasoning Service (DRS), a prototype service implementation that performs the cooperative reasoning process presented before. We present also the Context Model Service (CMS), another prototype service that had to be to implemented to support the DRS...
[In this chapter we describe how our implementation of the Decentralized Reasoning Service (DRS) was tested in respect to its functional behavior and its performance and discuss the results that were found.]
[In this chapter, we recollect the main aspects of our work and draw our final remarks. In the next section, we present a brief review about this work, summarizing the most important issues we tackled. In Sect. 9.2, we discuss the importance of the proposed approach. Finally, in Sect. 9.3, we...
