Context-Aware Resource Management in Multi-Inhabitant Smart Homes: A Nash H-Learning based Approach
A smart home aims at building intelligence automation with a goal to provide its inhabitants with maximum possible comfort, minimize the resource consumption and thus overall cost of maintaining the home. `Context Awareness' is perhaps the most salient feature of such an intelligent environment. Clearly, an inhabitant's mobility and activities play a significant role in defining his contexts in and around the home. Although there exists an optimal algorithm for location and activity tracking of a single inhabitant, the correlation and dependence between multiple inhabitants' contexts within the same environment make the location and activity tracking more challenging. In this paper, we first prove that the optimal location prediction across multiple inhabitants in smart homes is an NP-hard problem. Next, to capture the correlation and interactions of different inhabitants' movements (and hence activities), we develop a novel framework based on a game theoretic, Nas...
