Description & Coverage
Description:

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is an emerging paradigm for knowledge discovery, which originally emerged as a design language for invisible computing and smart environments. Since its introduction in the late 1990's, AmI has matured and evolved, having inspired fields including computer science, interaction design, mobile computing, and cognitive science.

Ubiquitous Developments in Ambient Computing and Intelligence: Human-Centered Applications provides a comprehensive collection of knowledge in cutting-edge research in fields as diverse as distributed computing, human computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, embedded systems, and other interdisciplinary areas which all contribute to AmI. Predicting the technologies that will shape our ever changing world is difficult however, in this book it is discussed that Ambient Intelligent technology will develop considerably in the future.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Agent-based approaches to ambient intelligence
  • Ambient intelligence for smart home environments
  • Applications and experience with deployed systems
  • Communication systems and infrastructure for ambient intelligence
  • Context awareness, sensing, and inference for ambient intelligence
  • Human interaction with autonomous systems
  • Innovative applications of AI to ambient intelligence
  • Interacting with ambient intelligence
  • Mobile Computing
  • Objects, devices, and environments that embody ambient intelligence
  • Security, privacy, and trust in ambient computing
  • Self-adaptive systems
