able to judge even loneliness with more complex situation in the future by improving
modeling of situations in which the aged feel loneliness. In addition, by improving
ratiocination method and ratiocination shall become more sophisticated in connection
to RFID as well as other sensor data.
In this thesis, in order to alleviate loneliness of users, images in compliance to
situations of date and time were shown in ambient display. In the future, it is planned
to study methods to alleviate loneliness more effectively using preference of users.
This research was conducted with the support of 'Seoul R&BD Program(10581). And
this work was supported by the Korean Ministry of Information and Communication
