English abstract:
Understanding the effect of pervasive services on user context is critical to many context-aware applications. Detailed descriptions of
context-altering services are necessary, and manually adapting them to
the local environment is a tedious and error-prone process. We present a method for automatically providing service descriptions by observing and learning from the behavior of a service with respect to its environment. By applying machine learning techniques on the observed behavior, our algorithms produce high quality localized service descriptions. In a series of experiments we show that our approach, which can be easily plugged into existing architectures, facilitates context-awareness without the need for manually added service descriptions
