Face recognition has become an attractive field in computer-based application development in the last few decades. This is because of the wide range of areas in which it is used. In addition, because of the wide variations of faces, face recognition from database images, real data, capture images, and sensor images are a challenging problem and lim...
Thesis
Full-text available
Ageing is a natural evolution among all living things, part of the life cycle, well known by everyone. World-wide population is being older, as a result of all social-financial aspects, leaving modern societies with less active citizens and increasing older population, which demands more focus into welfare politics. Having this reality in mind, inf...

Cloud computing is envisioned a dominant role in the future. Extensive amount of data are stored, applications running in the cloud, and globally accessible. However, users neither cannot nor are interested in observing and processing those amounts of information. Thus, a mentalistic model that virtually represents the user’s goals could be integra...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present an agent based system for extracting live and historic position data on multiple persons in a real environment, using a commercial off the shelves Real Time Location System (RTLS).We present a context model for representing the location data which allows composition of location data with preexisting knowledge on the environ...

Current research work shows that progress on AI and wireless sensor networks, made it possible to improve the quality of life of the people with disabilities using recent technologies [1]. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is one of the well-known research areas that has a goal to use ambient intelligent technologies to support people with special dema...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Intelligent care for the future is the IntelliCare project's main priority. This paper describes the design of a generic multi-agent framework for coordination of intelligent assistive technologies. The paper overviews technologies and software systems suitable for context awareness and housekeeping tasks, especially for performing a multi-robot cl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents the development of a bivalve farmer agent interacting with a realistic ecological simulation system. The purpose of the farmer agent is to determine the best combinations of bivalve seeding areas in a large region, maximizing the production without exceeding the total allowed seeding area. A system based on simulated annealing,...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents an approach to the calibration of ecological models, using intelligent agents with learning skills and optimization techniques. Model calibration, in complex ecological simulations is tipically performed by comparing observed with predicted data and it reveals as a key phase in the modeling process. It is an interactive process,...
