A Consolidated View of Context for Intelligent systems
Sprache des Titels:
This paper?s main objective is to consolidate the knowledge on context in the realm of intelligent systems, systems
that are aware of their context and can adapt their behavior accordingly. We provide an overview and analysis of 36 context
models that are heterogeneous and scattered throughout multiple fields of research. In our analysis, we identify five shared
context categories: social context, location, time, physical context, and user context. In addition, we compare the context
models with the context elements considered in the discourse on intelligent systems and find that the models do not properly
represent the identified set of 3,741 unique context elements. As a result, we propose a consolidation of the findings from the
36 context models and the 3,741 unique context elements. The analysis reveals that there is a long tail of context categories
that are considered only sporadically in context models. However, particularly these context elements in the long tail may be
necessary for improving intelligent systems? context awareness.
