Intelligent space: Interaction and intelligence

Plenary Talk


Intelligent space is space where we can easily interact with computers and robots, and get useful services from them. In such space, life can be more comfortable and more satisfying. In this article, the technologies to achieve intelligent space are introduced, and problems in using these technologies are discussed. Existing research related to intelligent space is introduced and some arguments about the future of intelligent space are presented.
