Project Title

Pattern Mining for IoT Service Usage

Project Description

Internet of Things (IoT) is fast becoming a pervasive universal computing network where everything and everyone is connected to the Internet. IoT technology is the key ingredient for smart environments such as smart homes, smart campuses, and smart cities. The objective of a smart environment is to provide its users convenience and efficiency. In a smart environment, people interact with IoT devices for various purposes. Understanding their IoT usage behavior is an essential step for providing convenient and comfortable services. We will use smart plugs, motion sensors, and indoor environment sensors to record the service interactions of the people in a smart environment. The project aims to build a service usage pattern model that mines peoples’ service interaction records by applying data mining techniques. The proposed model will focus on discovering and structuring insightful patterns using association rule mining algorithms, clustering algorithms, and classification algorithms.
