Intelligence represents a long-term objective for European
to the EU IST Advisory Group (ISTAG) definition, it is characterized by
convergence of three key technologies, ubiquitous computing, ubiquitous
communication and intelligent user-friendly interfaces, which embodies
laid-back mode of dialogue with integrated
service infrastructures in which ones everyday surroundings become the interface’.
Then, Ambient Intelligence (AmI) has the main goal to embed computer technologies and sensors in architectural environments that use artificial intelligence methods and techniques for reasoning about human actions and behavior within the environment and responding accordingly.The challenges that we envisage are related to the organization of multiple elements:
Since these pervasive computing technologies become deeply intertwined in our lives, the interaction with a smart environment may involve an intimate dimension in which people experience is affected not only by the task they need to perform, but also by the emotional and social context in which interaction occurs. Obviously, since achieving this ambitious objective requires exploiting a certain amount of personal and private data, trustworthiness of environments seems to be a key factor for their acceptance.
Artificial Intelligence research should provide solutions to these challenging issues.
This workshop is an interdisciplinary meeting focused on artificial intelligence methods and techniques for integrating ambient intelligence. In particular, we solicit contributions for fostering the discussion about the following topics of interest:
