Context Prediction in Pervasive Computing Systems: Achievements and Challenges
Context awareness is one of the core principles of pervasive computing. Context prediction is also recognised as a challenge
and an opportunity. Numerous approaches have been applied to resolve context prediction. This work develops and justifies
the principles of analysis and comparison of context-prediction methods, analyses the development in the area, compares different
context prediction techniques to identify their benefits and shortcomings, and, finally, identifies current challenges in
the area and proposes the solutions.
