Intelligent Situation-Aware Media and Presentations
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Rainer Malaka and Antonio Krüger, Cochairs
The design of intelligent situation-aware media and presentations becomes increasingly important for software designers and also for the design of consumer electronic devices. This process is due to the fact that software becomes more complex and systems become integrated into a ubiquitous information infrastructure. The paradigm of "one device -- one functionality" is over and today we can access mutually any service through any device. A TV set for instance is nowadays a control center for various applications, e.g., video programming, e-commerce, webbrowsing and more. A mobile PDA can be used as a telephone, tourist guide, remote control, and calendar or web-access device. In these scenarios, new intelligent methods are necessary, that decouple the application logic from the actual device and that adapt the media and presentation to the actual situation, i.e., the user with her needs and preferences, the devices that are available, and the context.
