Barsocchi et al. relies on a state-of-the-art middleware for sensor data gathering and the pursued perspective is the one of designing added value services based on such data. The paper presents the general project concept and its different ingredients then presents two different services: a reasoner for person tracking, and an interaction service that connects the human network involved in a given application environment.

The interested user can also access a specific environment, called “Context Reasoner”, that creates abstractions with respect to raw data in the attempt to infer additional context features by checking combination of raw sensor values over time (such capability is developed by our Swedish colleagues [13]).  4 Some screenshots of the @Office environment User-Oriented Services Based on Sensor Data 31 offering again a more abstract representation of the average activities in the house. The combination of the different capabilities is aims at giving the user a view of the person at home over time.

Despite the size of the overall deficit, there are encouraging signs of reduction thanks to more effective expenditure review. More concretely, in the shortest possible time the Italian health care system will face, therefore, the issue of sustainability, which remains strongly correlated to population dynamics. The aging of the population and the natural pressure that it exerts on the progress of expenditure requires that the policy makers to be able to use the innovation to bring out gaps and productive inefficiencies, especially in those systems where the public presence is relevant.
