    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    In this paper we propose a novel intelligent processing approach based on hard and soft sensor fusion for obtaining better actionable intelligence from automatic computer based decision support systems. The proposed smart fusion framework with particular focus on combining heterogeneous, multimedia, multimodal real-time big data streams---from hard and soft smart phone sensors, allows synergistic fusion to be achieved, leading to better operational intelligence from the computer based decision support systems. The details of this framework implementation with a component based software platform---the msifStudio, and its evaluation for some of the use case application scenarios is presented here.
