Whitepaper introduces “ubiquitous computing” technologies

May 31, 2005 — by Henry Kingman — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Intel is conducting several research projects to enable “a future in which computing will be ubiquitous, woven seamlessly into the fabric of everyday life.” This Intel-authored whitepaper outlines four of the initiatives: a Personal Server; Precision Location Technology; Low-Cost Location Technology; and a System for Human Activity Recognition and Prediction.

“Today, people's experience of computer technology is, for the most part, time-consuming and frustrating,” the paper states. “Intel researchers are looking to address the increasing, sometimes overwhelming, complexity that comes with digital living and will explore ways to measurably simplify the digital experience.”
