As more users are joining these online consumer and entertainment sectors, the profile-based data for providing accurate just-intime recommendations is rising thanks to strategies based on collaborative filtering or content-based metrics. However, these systems merely focus on providing the right item for the users without taking into account what would be the best strategy to suggest the movie, the product or the song (i.e. the strategy to increase the success or impact of the recommendation). Taking this research gap into consideration, this paper proposes a profile-based recommendation system that outputs a set of potential persuasive strategies that can be used with users with similar characteristics. The case study presented provides tailored persuasive strategies to make office-based employees enhance the energy efficiency at work (the dataset used on this research is specific of this sector). Throughout the paper, shreds of evidence are reported assessing the validity of the proposed system. Specifically, two approaches are compared: a profile-based recommendation system (RS) vs. the same RS enriched by adding an ensemble with an active learning model. The results shed light on not only providing effective mechanisms to increase the success of the recommendations but also alleviating the cold start problem when newcomers arrive.}, language = {en}, urldate = {2020-03-24}, journal = {Personal and Ubiquitous Computing}, author = {S\xe1nchez-Corcuera, Rub\xe9n and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Borges, Cruz E. and L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego}, month = mar, year = {2020}, keywords = {IF1.735, Persuasive Technology, Q3, Recsys, cold-user problem, preference recommendation, user profiling} }']

This paper demonstrates that IEC 61850 can be fully mapped to the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) in combination with the Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) format while improving system performance compared to existing alternatives (e.g. WS-SOAP and HTTP).

To increase employees' motivation and prevent early drop-out, disengagement or high attrition rates, this work presents an intervention methodology based on the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm.

The included integrated hardware elements interact digitally and physically with users, sense environmental conditions and send the captured data to the cloud, where remote management tools allow to control and configure the whole setup.

Such necessities are becoming increasingly common due to the advent of the Industry 4.0 among other smart deployments. A recurring issue in this field is that existing and new projects are reinventing the wheel by starting the development and deployment of IoT devices from scratch. To overcome such loss of efficiency in development, we propose to use Software Product Line (SPL) and Model-Based Engineering (MBE) since they seem promising in the literature in order to accelerate and ease the development software while reducing bugs and errors, and hence, costs. Additionally, a personalized solution is needed since not all Industrial CPSs (ICPSs) are composed by the same devices or use the same IoT communication protocols. Thus, we realized that a Domain Specific Language (DSL) along with a standard, will allow the user to graphically model the ICPS for this to be monitored and controlled. Therefore, this work presents TRILATERAL, a SPL Model Based tool that uses a Domain Specific Language (DSL) to allow users to graphically model ICPSs with a IEC 61850 based metamodel, a standard originally designed for electrical substations but that has also been used in other domains. TRILATERAL automatically generates an artifact in order to create a middleware between the ICPS and the monitoring system to monitor and control all the devices within the ICPS.

The workplace is a challenging scenario since the economic incentives are not present to increase energy awareness. To tackle some of these issues we have augmented a shared coffee-maker with eco-feedback to turn it into a green ally of the workers. Its design rationale is twofold: Firstly, to make the coffee-maker able to learn its own usage pattern. Secondly, to communicate persuasively and in real-time to users whether it is more efficient to leave the appliance on or off during certain periods of time along the workday. The goal is to explore a human-machine team towards energy efficiency and awareness, i.e. whether giving the initiative to users to decide how to operate the common appliances, but being assisted by them, is a better choice than automation or mere informative eco-feedback.}, language = {en}, urldate = {2014-05-08TZ}, booktitle = {Extended {Abstracts} on {Human} {Factors} in {Computing} {Systems} ({CHI} 2014)}, publisher = {ACM New York, NY, USA \xa92014}, author = {Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Lopez-de-Armentia, Juan and Garaizar, Pablo and L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego}, year = {2014}, keywords = {Eco-aware Everyday Things, Energy-efficiency, Persuasive Technology, Sustainability, eco-feedback, linked-data-social-coffee-maker}, pages = {2425--2430} }']

These eco-appliances make people aware that they are not alone to save energy, but the everyday things can team up with them to achieve this task.

However, constrained devices still struggle embedding the computation that servers carry out in the Cloud. The case of load and devices usage forecasting is a particular example of this issue where efforts are being made to simplify the processing and device architecture towards reducing energy consumption in data flow and computation.
