Identifying aspects of Ambient Intelligence through a review of recent developments
AbstractIt has already been realized by the scientific and technical community that a new form of technology is going to lead the future technological developments. This technology will be more human-centric and will be more and more hidden within everyday-life objects. It will be smarter, personalized, pervasive and ubiquitous. This technology includes what is called Ambient Intelligence (AmI). In this paper, we identify the main aspects of AmI through a review of the recent developments that have been achieved in these aspects of AmI and Ambient Intelligence Environments (AmIEs), as well as point out the problems yet to be solved and the visions of the future.
