The HBMS Story
Past and Future of an Active Assistance Approach
Keywords:Conceptual Modeling, Active Assistance, Human Behavior Monitoring and Support, Model Centered Architecture
The aim of the Human Behavior Monitoring and Support (HBMS) project has been to actively assist individuals in activities of daily living and other situations using users’ own episodic knowledge. This knowledge is represented and preserved in HBMS in the HCM, the Human Cognitive Model, expressed in the domain specific modelling language HCM-L. HCM also forms the base for reasoning, model matching and support state visualization. Moreover, in the HBMS-System conceptual models are also used to define interfaces to activity recognition systems, support clients and data available in the Semantic Web. Thus, we see HBMS-System as an application of the Model Centered Architecture (MCA) paradigm. This paper describes how the project evolved over time, its main challenges and milestones, its main processes and their dependencies, and what is going to happen in the next future.
