Example text

In order to avoid a learning bias, half of the subjects were asked to execute first the three actions with NFC and the other half were asked to start with the touchscreen-based interface. Besides, we observed that the live demonstration of the application was not enough for all the subjects to get familiar with its functionality and some had doubts both with the graphical interface and the NFC tag reading. Therefore we extended the experiment with a second subject group which was requested to first execute some training actions in order to get comfortable with the application, enabling to research into the effect of this short training on task efficiency and the possible differences between both interaction approaches.

These services, which have been validated with a dataset collected in real homes, reside within the database and avoid exporting sensitive data to external data analysis tools. Such an approach leads to improved performance, security, and flexibility while benefiting from the management capabilities of DBMSs. Centralizing the domain logic into the DBMS reduces code duplication and facilitates the adaptability and scalability of the system as individual needs evolve. The database model is an ongoing work and aims to describe resources using semantic technologies to facilitate integration, adaptation, reasoning, and knowledge extraction.
