Title
Designing Interactive Knowledge-supported Ubiquitous Information Systems


Description
The lesson consists of 1 lectures and 4 exercises. In the lecture, a methodology is presented for the design of interactive knowledge-supported Ubiquitous Information Systems (UIS). Each step of the method is exemplified by its application in the IKS AmI use case. In addition, students learn how to design UIS by 4 exercises. Within the formalization of system design, it is shown how IKS helps to develop the knowledge representation of the resulting UIS and to handle interactive knowledge.

Structure of Lecture
