Today’s vast use and frequent uploading of videos on the internet has created a need for a product that would search, select, and recommend videos that would be of interest to the user. Specifically, the video play list will be tailored to the user’s emoti...
Wearable Communities: Augmenting Social Networks with Wearable Computers
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Gerd Kortuem, Zary Segall
Issue Date:January 2003
pp. 71-78
<p>This article illustrates the social potentials of wearable computers by discussing wearable communities, social networks based on augmented face-to-face encounters. It discusses social and technical issues of building wearable communities and intr...
Multishelf: An Experiment in Peer-to-Peer Infomediation
Found in: Peer-to-Peer Computing, IEEE International Conference on
By Zary Segall, Andrew Fortier, Gerd Kortuem, Jay Schneider, Sean Workman
Issue Date:September 2002
pp. 120
This paper describes the architecture and the implementation of Multishelf - a decentralized Peer-to-Peer infomediator. Multishelf was designed and built during a ten-week senior software methodology course using the Proem Peer-to-Peer platform. We discuss...
When Cyborgs Meet: Building Communities of Cooperating Wearable Agents
Found in: Wearable Computers, IEEE International Symposium
By Gerd Kortuem, Jay Schneider, Jim Suruda, Steve Fickas, Zary Segall
Issue Date:October 1999
pp. 124
This paper introduces the notion of a Wearable Community as a group of wearable users who cooperate for their mutual benefit. In such a community, wearable computers act as personal agents on behalf of and in the interest of their 'owners'. These agents ar...
Energy Consumption Reduction via Context-Aware Mobile Video Pre-fetching
Found in: 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM)
By Alisa Devlic,Pietro Lungaro,Pavan Kamaraju,Zary Segall,Konrad Tollmar
Issue Date:December 2012
pp. 261-265
The arrival of smart phones and tablets, along with a flat rate mobile Internet pricing model have caused increasing adoption of mobile data services. According to recent studies, video has been the main driver of mobile data consumption, having a higher g...
Impact of semantic-aware radio resource management schemes on video streaming service
Found in: 2012 IEEE 8th International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob)
By Luis Guillermo Martinez Ballesteros,Pietro Lungaro,Zary Segall
Issue Date:October 2012
pp. 831-836
Current wireless networks have no knowledge on the type and characteristics of the specific mobile services and contents they are providing (they are agnostic). On the other hand, associated to richer content and more advanced devices, improvement of Quali...
A Collaborative Wearable System with Remote Sensing
Found in: Wearable Computers, IEEE International Symposium
By Martin Bauer, Timo Heiber, Gerd Kortuem, Zary Segall
Issue Date:October 1998
pp. 10
This paper presents a collaborative wearable system based on the notion of remote sensing. Remote sensing lets users of wearable or stationary computers perceive a remote environment through the sensors of a remote wearable computer. We describe a concrete...
