    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Concepts, algorithms, paradigms, implementations, and existing systems of Ambient Intelligence (AmI), wireless networking, and ubiquitous computing are covered in 20 chapters by an international roster of contributors (most are European; some are from North America, the Middle East, and Asia). Editors Vasilakos (U. of Thessaly, Greece) and Pedrycz (U. of Alberta, Canada) open with discussion of the challenges at this frontier of computer research where smart dust and other technology will be enlisted to respond to, and even anticipate human needs and directives. Subsequent coverage includes technical and practical problems that must be addressed in order to make the environment seamlessly workable for its human inhabitants. Chapters are devoted to technical issues--such topics as fuzzy adaptive embedding agents, physical browsing, distributed workgroups, grids, peer-to-peer networks, routing protocols, human-machine interfaces, security--as well as issues of context and application in business (meetings), education (e.g. the MyCampus system), and wearable systems. The final chapter addresses intelligent automatic exploration of virtual worlds (and why it's important).

Synopsis:

Ambient Intelligence (AmI) is the next wave in computing and communications technology. Nano-sized sensors and computers, wireless networks, and intelligent software are being integrated to create AmI environments. One such AmI environment is an intelligent home that can sense changes in a house and its occupants to instantly track objects or call 911 in case of a fall or heart attack. Another AmI environment is an intelligent airport to effortlessly guide a traveler to a connecting flight, through customs, or to a waiting car service. This cutting-edge reference explains ways to plan for AmI service deployment, develop AmI software and networks, and further advance AmI capabilities. It looks at such nuts-and-bolts issues as security, architecture, systems integration, and quality of service. This forward-looking volume also covers such latest AmI developments as smart dust, smart personal object technology, and context-aware computing.
