AmbientIntelligence(AmI)wasintroducedinthelate1990sasanovelparadigm for electronic environments for the years 2010–2020. The concept builds on the earlyideasofWeiser,whowasaimingatanovelmobilecomputinginfrastructure integrated into the networked environment of people. AmI takes the embedding of computing devices one step ahead by integrating computational intelligence into the entire surrounding of people, thus moving technology fully to the ba- ground and the user into the foreground by supporting him or her with intuitive and natural interaction concepts. According to the de?nition, AmI refers to smart electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people. Since its introduction the vision has grown mature, so as to become quite in?uential in the development of new concepts for information processing, combiningmulti-disciplinary?eldsincludingelectricalengineering,computers- ence, industrial design, user interfaces, and cognitive sciences. The AmI paradigm provides a basis for new models of technological inno- tion within a multi-dimensional society. The added value of the AmI vision lies inthefactthatthelarge-scaleintegration of electronics into the environment enables the actors, i.e., people and objects, to interact with their surrounding in a seamless, trustworthy, and natural manner. This is directly connected to the growing societal need for communication and the exchange of information.
