Providing cognitive assistance in smart homes is a field of research that receives a lot of attention lately. In order to give adequate assistance at the opportune moment, we need to recognize the observed behavior when the patient carries out some activities in a smart home. To address this challenging issue, we present a formal activity recognition framework based on possibility theory. We present initial results from an implementation of this possibilistic recognition approach in a smart home laboratory.
