Context-aware decision making under uncertainty for voice-based control of smart home

Abstract : This paper presents a framework to build home automation systems reactive to voice for improved comfort and autonomy at home. The focus of this paper is on the context-aware decision process which must reason from uncertain facts inferred from real sensor data. This framework for building context aware systems uses a hierarchical knowledge model so that different inference modules can communicate and reason with same concepts and relations. The context-aware decision module is based on a Markov Logic Network, a recent approach which make it possible to benefit from formal logical representation and to model uncertainty of this knowledge. In this work, uncertainty of the decision model has been learned from data. Although some expert systems are able to deal with uncertainty, the Markov Logic Network approach brings a unified theory for dealing with logical entailment, uncertainty and missing data. Moreover, the ability to use a priori knowledge and to learn weights and structure from data make this model appealing to address the challenge of adaptation of expert systems to new applications. Finally, the framework has been implemented in an on-line system which has been evaluated in a real smart home with real naive users. Results of the experiment show the interest of context-aware decision making and the advantages of a statistical relational model for the framework.
