Inhabitant Guidance of Smart Environments [chapter]

Parisa Rashidi, G. Michael Youngblood, Diane J. Cook, Sajal K. Das
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
While we all would like the benefits of an environment that automates many of our daily tasks, a smart environment that makes the wrong decisions can quickly becoming annoying.  ...  With the convergence of technologies in artificial intelligence, humancomputer interfaces, and pervasive computing, the idea of a "smart environment" is becoming a reality.  ...  We anticipate that user guidance of our smart environments will increase satisfaction with automation assistance and promote more wide-spread use of smart environment technologies.  ...
