Executive Summary  Title:
 Identity in the Ambient Intelligence Environment


Ambient Intelligence Environment

The Ambient Intelligence motivator is to enrich the quality of the everyday life. Indeed, AmI is a vision aiming at placing human beings at the centre of the future development of the knowledge-based society and information and communication technologies. 

AmI vision mainly encompasses three key technologies: 

  1. Ubiquitous Computing: the integration of microprocessors into everyday objects like furniture, clothes or toys.

  2. Ubiquitous communication: enabling communications between object-object and object-user. (An object is for example an electronic device such as a PDA, Personal Digital Assistant).

  3. Intelligent User Interface: enabling the user of the AmI space to control and interact with this environment in a natural and personalised way.


The purpose is to deliver seamless applications and services to citizens in order to support their everyday activity. Hence, AmI vision is based on a user-driven approach with the goal to foster the integration of the technology into our environment. This approach involves the understanding as to how people interact with the technology and the handling of an indispensable component, the user context. In order to fulfil theses objectives, the characteristics to be achieved are ubiquity, awareness, transparency, intelligent, sensitive, adaptive and responsive.
