An Extended Framework for Context Modeling
- 495 Downloads
This paper proposes an extended framework to describe a context for a human work environment. The framework consists of human and nonhuman elements, their inner states, and the interactions among them, with all these elements physically distributed in time and space. Moreover, it is noted that descriptive, normative, prescriptive, and formative representations of contexts should be distinguished. This enables us to use the proposed framework to describe past and future contexts in a standardized way so that we can share our contextual knowledge and design a context.
