Book Description :

This book presents the workshop proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Intelligent Environments (IE 2011), held in Nottingham, United Kingdom, in July 2011. The workshops provide a forum for scientists, researchers and engineers from both industry and academia to engage in discussion on newly emerging or rapidly evolving topics which have yet to reach conferences or journals. The seven workshops included in the conference address a diverse set of topics. The formats are equally diverse, ranging from lectures to practical sessions, and comprising over 80 presentations in total. The workshops and the areas they address are as follows: AITAmI’11, the special relevance of AI technology to the goals of ambient intelligence and practical applications; CS’11, the use of science fiction stories grounded in current science and engineering research as a means to motivate and direct research into new technologies; HCIAmI’11, an exploration of multidisciplinary human centric interfaces for ambient intelligence applications; IC’11, the next-generation intelligent campus environment; SciT’11, establishing a multidisciplinary forum using the creative arts as a means of conveying scientific achievements to a wider audience; SOOW’11, smart offices and other intelligent workplaces and finally, WISHWell’11, an exploration of pervasive healthcare technology solutions within the hospital and home. Providing a picture of the latest ideas and innovations in the field, this book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the use or creation of intelligent environments.

Book Description :

Our homes anticipate when we want to wake up. Our computers predict what music we want to buy. Our cars adapt to the way we drive. In today’s world, even washing machines, rice cookers and toys have the capability of autonomous decision-making. As we grow accustomed to computing power embedded in our surroundings, it becomes clear that these ‘smart environments’, with a number of devices controlled by a coordinating system capable of ‘ambient intelligence’, will play an ever larger role in our lives. This handbook provides readers with comprehensive, up-to-date coverage in what is a key technological field. . Systematically dealing with each aspect of ambient intelligence and smart environments, the text covers everything, from visual information capture and human/computer interaction to multi-agent systems, network use of sensor data, and building more rationality into artificial systems. The book also details a wide range of applications, examines case studies of recent major projects from around the world, and analyzes both the likely impact of the technology on our lives, and its ethical implications. With a wide variety of separate disciplines all conducting research relevant to this field, this handbook encourages collaboration between disparate researchers by setting out the fundamental concepts from each area that are relevant to ambient intelligence and smart environments, providing a fertile soil in which ground-breaking new work candevelop.

Book Description :

The metaphor of Ambient Intelligence (AmI) tries to picture a vision of the future where all of us will be surrounded by 'intelligent' electronic environments, and this ambient has claims to being sensitive and responsive to our needs. Ambient Intelligence without invasion of privacy represents a long-term vision for the EU Information Society Technologies Research programme. A strong multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach is a key requirement for large-scale technology innovation and the development of effective applications. Up to now, most of the books and papers related to AmI focus their analysis on the technology potential only. An important feature of this volume is the link between the technology - through the concepts of ubiquitous computing and intelligent interface - and the human experience of interacting in the world - through a neuro-psychological vision centred on the concept of 'presence'. Presence - the sense of being there - is the experience of projecting one's mind through media to other places, people and designed environments. The combination of recent discoveries in cognitive neuroscience - which make it possible to acquire a better understanding of the human aspects of presence, and the breakthroughs at the level of the enabling technologies make it increasingly possible to build novel systems based on this understanding. The goal of this volume is to assess the technologies and processes that are behind the AmI vision, in order to help the development of state-of-the-art applications. More in detail, this volume aims at supporting researchers and scientists, interested in the understanding and exploiting the potential of AmI.

Book Description :

th Celebrating its 10 anniversary, the vision of Ambient Intelligence has been widely adopted as a human-centric approach to application and technology - velopment. While the Ambient Intelligence vision was initially conceptualized as a reply to technological developments that enabled the embedding of int- ligence in electronic environments with a focus on information, communication and entertainment applications, the vision has not been agnostic to the rising needs in society. Today,the Ambient Intelligence vision represents also a holistic approach to technology-supported health and wellbeing systems. Going back to 2003, the annual Ambient Intelligence conference has est- lished a well-recognized academic and industrial community. The ?rst Ambient Intelligenceconferencepresentedaprogrambuiltaroundfourthemes:ubiquitous computing,contextawareness,intelligence andnaturalinteraction.Re?ectingthe evolution of the Ambient Intelligence vision, this year's conference included - ditional themes such as assisted living, methods and tools,and applications and studies. These AmI 09 proceedings include the latest research into technologies and applications that enable and validate the deployment of the Ambient Intel- gence vision. With 21 full papers and 10 short papers, these proceedings provide a good insight into the state-of-the art of Ambient Intelligence research and development.

Book Description :

Ambient intelligence (AI) refers to a developing technology that will increasingly make our everyday environment sensitive and responsive to our presence. The AI vision requires technology invisibly embedded in our everyday surroundings, present whenever we need it that will lead to the seamless integration of lighting, sounds, vision, domestic appliances, and personal healthcare products to enhance our living experience. Written for the non-specialist seeking an authoritative but accessible overview of this interdisciplinary field, True Visions explains how the devices making up the AI world will operate collectively using information and intelligence hidden in the wireless network connecting them. Expert contributions address key AI components such as smart materials and textiles, system architecture, mobile computing, broadband communication, and underlying issues of human-environment interactions. It seeks to unify the perspectives of scientists from diverse backgrounds ranging from the physics of materials to the aesthetics of industrial design as it describes the emergence of ambient intelligence, one of today’s most compelling areas of innovation.

Book Description :

This book introduces the concept of the wise home. Whilst smart homes focus on automation technologies, forcing users to deal with complex and incomprehensible control and programming procedures, the wise home is different. By going beyond intelligence (or smartness) the wise home puts technology in the background and supports explicit (enhanced user-experience) as well as implicit (artificial intelligence) interaction adequate to the end-user’s needs. The theoretical basis of the wise home is explored and examples for its application for future living are presented based on empirical studies and field work carried out by the author. Principles of HCI and the meaning of the home from differing scientific perspective are discussed and a research model (based on the concept of user experience (UX)) and iterations is introduced. This has resulted in field deployment guides being produced through a systematic development process. The Future Home is Wise, not Smart will be essential reading to home system developers, designers and researchers, responsible for smart home deployment or Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) who will get insights on how to follow a novel approach in developing and adapting smart home systems to their users’ needs. Students with an interest in software design for pervasive systems will benefit by receiving information on how to develop and customise systems for the specific needs of living environments.
