How About a MATe for Awareness in Teams

Lukas Ruge, Martin Christof Kindsmüller, Jörg Cassens, Michael Herczeg


While guests in the office or a phone call can be pleasant sur-
prises, in the wrong moment they may be disrupting a time of focused
work and concentration. A lack of coordination between colleagues at
the work place can lead to unwanted interruptions and result in an inef-
ficient and unpleasant workplace. MATe (Mate for Awareness in Teams)
is a pervasive, ambient intelligent computing framework charged with
the task of preventing unwanted interruptions and improving social in-
teraction at the workplace of knowledge workers. We present a survey of
employees at a university in order to identify the attitudes of knowledge
workers towards interruptions as well as their opinions on a pervasive
system surveying and analyzing their behavior. Based on the results of
this survey a prototype has been developed using an ontology written in
OWL as a knowledge representation and logic-based reasoning to infer
the users’ status and interruptibility.
