Over the last decade a number of research areas have contributed to the concept of advanced intelligent environments, these include ubiquitous computing, pervasive computing, embedded intelligence, intelligent user interfaces, human factors, intelligent buildings, mobile communications, domestic robots, intelligent sensors, artistic and architectural design and ambient intelligence. Undeniably, multimodal spoken language dialogue interaction is a key factor in ensuring natural interaction and therefore of particular interest for advanced intelligent environments. It will therefore represent one focus of the proposed book. The book will cover all key topics in the field of intelligent environments from a variety of leading researchers. It will bring together several perspectives in research and development in the area.
Covers the interdisciplinary study of intelligent environments, including human-computer-interaction in addition to the artistic, architectural, design, and social aspects of intelligent environments
Brings together several perspectives in research and development in the area of intelligent environments
