Abstract

The study of ambient computing (AmI) environments and pervasive computing systems has introduced new research challenges in the field of KR. These are mainly caused by the imperfect nature of context information, and the need to provide distributed reasoning capabilities. [4] characterizes four types of imperfect context information: unknown, ambiguous (inconsistent), imprecise, and erroneous. These imperfections may be caused by hardware, communication and sensor failures, and the need to integrate information from various sources.
