Considerable effort to manually set up the user’s context and too coarse-grained activity recognition results often make it difficult to set up active assisted living systems. In this paper we join our cognitive assistance system HBMS with the semantic web to (1) simplify the construction of user’s context model and to (2) improve the system’s activity recognition capability. We present how to describe non-smart resources like domestic appliances semantically to make their handling understandable for HBMS-System and interoperable with its environmental context model. Benefits of this semantic markup approach beyond the use for HBMS are discussed. Moreover, we show how personalized and adaptive HBMS user clients and the power of the HBMS environmental context model can be used to bridge an existing activity recognition gap.
