Abstract

This chapter describes a need for Smart Media to enhance the vision of the Smart Internet. Smart Media is introduced as a mechanism to bridge Smart Services and Smart Interactions. Smart Media extends the existing notions of Media in HCI such as Hypermedia, New Media, Adaptive Hypermedia, and Social Media. There are three main contributions from this paper: (1) A historical perspective of media in HCI and how media could benefit from smartness; (2) through some high level sample scenarios, a proposal for Smart Media to meet the vision of the Smart Internet; and (3) a detailed example of how Smart Media could play a role in software development. The paper concludes by outlining some of the key challenges that need to be faced in realizing and applying Smart Media objects.
