MavHome: An Agent-based Smart Home

Diane J. Cook, Michael Youngblood, Edwing O. III Heierman, Karthik Gopalratnam, Sira Rao, Andrey Litvin, Farhan Khawaja
The goal of the MavHome (Managing An Intelligent Versatile Home) project is to create a home that acts as an intelligent agent. In this paper we introduce the MavHome architecture. The role of prediction algorithms within the architecture is discussed, and a meta-predictor is presented which combines the strengths of multiple approaches to inhabitant action prediction. We demonstrate the effectiveness of these algorithms on smart home data.
