ISTAG - Scenarios for Ambient Intelligence in 2010 - Final report

Funded under: FP6-IST


This report starts with four scenarios that illustrate how Ambient Intelligence might be experienced in daily life and work around 2010. The concept of Ambient Intelligence (AmI) provides a wide-ranging vision on how the Information Society will develop. The emphasis of AmI is on greater user-friendliness, more efficient services support, user-empowerment, and interfaces that are embedded in all kinds of objects. The AmI environment is capable of recognizing and responding to the presence of different individuals. And, most important, AmI works in a seamless, unobtrusive and often invisible way.

The particular aim of the work was to provide a focus point for discussion around the requirements for ICT research under the Sixth Framework Programme. The scenarios were commissioned by ISTAG (the Information Society Technologies Advisory Group) in May 2000.
