      Factors that influence the finding of objects can be numerous and complex. Ubiquitous computing solutions for this problem begin with underlying technologies (location-sensing and capture) as building blocks for real ...
    • A flexible security architecture for pervasive computing environments 

      Covington, Michael J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-06-07)
    • A framework for the design of systems with intelligent and interactive information flow 

      Singhee, Mukul (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-05-24)
      Potentially transformational ideas in several applications of human and computer interaction form the motivation for this work. It is targeted towards a systematic approach to the design of systems with complex, intelligent ...
    • Generalized Role-Based Access Control for Securing Future Applications 

      Covington, Michael J.; Moyer, Matthew James; Ahamad, Mustaque (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000)
      As computing technology becomes more pervasive and broadband services are deployed into residential communities, new applications will emerge for the home and community environment. These applications will assist people ...
    • INCA: An Infrastructure for Capture and Access Supporting the Generation, Preservation and Use of Memories from Everyday Life 

      Truong, Khai Nhut (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-07-13)
      Peoples daily lives and experiences often contain memories and information that they may want to recall again at a later time. Human memory, however, has its limitations and many times it alone may not be sufficient. People ...
    • Infrastructure mediated sensing 

      Patel, Shwetak Naran (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-07-08)
      Ubiquitous computing application developers have limited options for a practical activity and location sensing technology that is easy-to-deploy and cost-effective. In this dissertation, I have developed a class of activity ...
    • inSpace: Co-Designing the Physical and Digital Environment to Support Workplace Collaboration 

      Voida, Stephen; McKeon, Matt; Le Dantec, Christopher; Forslund, C.; Verma, Puja; McMillan, B.; Bunde-Pedersen, J.; Edwards, Keith; Mynatt, Elizabeth D.; Mazalek, Ali (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
      In this paper, we unpack three themes for the multidisciplinary codesign of a physical and digital meeting space environment in supporting collaboration: that social practices should dictate design, the importance ...
    • Integrating Meeting Capture within a Collaborative Team Environment 

      Richter, Heather Anne; Abowd, Gregory D.; Geyer, Werner; Daijavad, Shahrokh; Fuchs, Ludwin; Poltrock, Steven (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001)
      Meeting capture has been a common subject of research in the ubiquitous computing community for the past decade. However, the majority of the research has focused on technologies to support the capture and not enough on ...
