The internet of things (IoT) is quickly growing into a large industry with a huge economic impact expected in the near future. However, the users’ needs go beyond the existing web-like services, which do not provide satisfactory intelligence levels. Ambient intelligence services in IoT environments is an emerging research area that can change the way that technology and services are perceived by the users.

Ambient Intelligence Services in IoT Environments: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a unique source that systemizes recent trends and advances for service development with such key technological enablers of modern ICT as ambient intelligence, IoT, web of things, and cyber-physical systems. The considered concepts and models are presented using a smart spaces approach with a particular focus on the Smart-M3 platform, which is now shaping into an open source technology for creating ontology-based smart spaces and is shifting towards the development of web of things applications and socio-cyber-physical systems. Containing coverage on a broad range of topics such as fog computing, smart environments, and virtual reality, multitudes of researchers, students, academicians, and professionals will benefit from this timely reference.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Dmitry Korzun received his B.Sc. (1997) and M.Sc (1999) degrees in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from the Petrozavodsk State University (PetrSU, Russia). He received a Ph.D. degree in Physics and Mathematics from the St.-Petersburg State University (Russia) in 2002. He is an Associate Professor at Department of Computer Science of PetrSU (since 2003 and ongoing). He was Visiting Research Scientist at the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, Aalto University, Finland (2005-2014). In 2014-2016 he performed the duties of Vice-dean for Research at Faculty of Mathematics and Information Technology of PetrSU. Since 2014 he has acted as Leading Research Scientist at PetrSU, originating research and development activity within fundamental and applied research projects on emerging topics in ubiquitous computing, smart spaces, and Internet technology. Dmitry Korzun serves on technical program committees and editorial boards of a number of international conferences and journals. His research interests include modeling and evaluation of distributed systems, mathematical modeling and concept engineering of cyber-physical systems, ubiquitous computing and smart spaces, Internet of Things and its applications, software engineering and programming methods, algorithm design and complexity, linear Diophantine analysis and its applications, theory of formal languages and parsing. His educational activity started in 1997 at the Faculty of Mathematics of PetrSU (now Institute of Mathematics and Information Technology). Since that time he has taught more than 20 study courses on hot topics in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Information and Communication Technology, and Software Engineering. He is an author and co-author of more than 150 research and educational publications.
