      The Software Architecture Analysis Method (SAAM) was developed at the Software Engineering Institute in the mid-90's and has been effective in helping industrial projects to uncover a shared understanding of the high- level ...
    • Automating the Capture of Design Knowledge: A Preliminary Study 

      Richter, Heather Anne; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999)
      A large amount of design information that is generated during design often does not get recorded, resulting in a potential loss of important design knowledge. The design rationale community has offered methods for capturing ...

      Kidd, Cory D.; O'Connell, Thomas; Nagel, Kristine Susanne; Patil, Sameer; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000)
      As we enable everyday environments with ubiquitous technology, there are many opportunities to support simple activities in useful ways. We are investigating how an environment made aware of the location and activities of ...
    • The buzz: supporting extensively customizable information awareness applications 

      Eagan, James R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-08-25)
      Increasingly abundant access to data and cheaper display technology costs are creating an exciting opportunity to create new information awareness tools that can present information calmly through peripheral and ambient ...
    • Can Electronic Notebooks Enhance the Classroom? 

      Sawhney, Nitin (Nick); Abowd, Gregory D.; Atkeson, Christopher G. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
      We are interested in prototyping future computing environments that will enhance the classroom experience and empower both teacher and student. In this paper, we describe the Classroom 2000 project at Georgia Tech which ...
    • A computational framework for unsupervised analysis of everyday human activities 

      Hamid, Muhammad Raffay (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-07-07)
      In order to make computers proactive and assistive, we must enable them to perceive, learn, and predict what is happening in their surroundings. This presents us with the challenge of formalizing computational models of ...
    • The Context Toolkit: Aiding the Development of Context-Enabled Applications 

      Salber, Daniel; Dey, Anind K.; Abowd, Gregory D. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998)
      Context-enabled applications are just emerging and promise richer interaction by taking environmental context into account. However, they are difficult to build due to their distributed nature and the use of unconventional ...
    • Context-Awareness in Wearable and Ubiquitous Computing 

      Abowd, Gregory D.; Dey, Anind K.; Orr, Robert J.; Brotherton, Jason Alan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997)
      A common focus shared by researchers in mobile, ubiquitous and wearable computing is the attempt to break away from the traditional desktop computing paradigm. Computational services need to become as mobile as their users. ...
    • D-Stampede: Distributed Programming System for Ubiquitous Computing 

      Adhikari, Sameer; Paul, Arnab; Ramachandran, Umakishore (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001)
      That the future of information technology will be dominated by invisible or pervasive computing is a belief that is being shared by several research groups. In a sense, this is the limit of the ubiquitous computing vision ...
    • Decision support for caregivers through embedded capture and access 

      Kientz, Julie A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-07-08)
      The care of individuals with concerns about development, health, and wellness is often a difficult, complicated task and may rely on a team of diverse caregivers. There are many decisions that caregivers must make to help ...
