Thematic Issue on
Contribution of Artificial Intelligence to Ambient Intelligence
 
Ambient Intelligence (AmI) technology holds great promise in permeating everyday life by changing the nature of almost every human activity. Research in the past few years has indicated that the realization of AmI vision requires the development of systems that integrate sensing, computing and networking with advanced techniques for data and knowledge representation and management. AmI systems derive their power from the vast number of interactions among a large number of heterogeneous components with versatile properties and capabilities. Nevertheless, if this technology is to be accepted, intuitive and efficient human-system interaction must be provided.
The complexity of AmI applications that results from their dynamic and distributed nature and the need to provide a safe and controllable environment for people constitutes an opportunity for the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) research. In order to achieve the AmI concept, researchers and developers must employ modern, highly effective AI techniques. In the aims of AI, research envisages to include more intelligence in AmI environments, allowing for better support to human occupants and access to the essential knowledge to make better decisions when interacting with these environments.
 
In this special issue, we shall consider high quality papers reporting original research results on topics that include, but are not limited to:
           Context awareness, representation and management techniques
           AI based data/information processing and decision making techniques for AmI applications
           Knowledge representation and management in AmI environments
           Design of semantically rich AmI environments
           Agent based architectures for AmI applications
           Design of smart components and autonomous systems
           Intuitively interactive AmI applications, including speech recognition and natural language processing, computer vision, gesture recognition, activity recognition, emotion and mood recognition etc
           Machine learning techniques in AmI environments
           Planning decisions and actions in AmI environments
           AI tools applied to the design of AmI systems
