Abstract

Current research work shows that progress on AI
and wireless sensor networks, made it possible to improve the
quality of life of the people with disabilities using recent
technologies [1]. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is one of the
well-known research areas that has a goal to use ambient
intelligent technologies to support people with special demands to
live longer periods in their proffered environment [2]. The prime
challenges of the AAL are recognition of the assisted person’s
current activity and providing appropriate support to the person
[3]. But these systems need extensive studies on user modeling to
be more efficient to adapt the changes of user capabilities and
preferences which is strongly correlated with the prime
challenges of AAL. In this paper, a user model has been proposed
that tends to be used in the autonomous and reliable recognition.
