A mbient intelligence is an exciting new information technology paradigm in which people are empowered through a digital environment that is aware of their presence and context and is sensitive, adaptive, and responsive to their needs. 1 Ambient-intelligence environments are characterized by their ubiquity, transparency, and intelligence. In these The Essex intelligent dormitory, iDorm, uses embedded agents to create an ambientintelligence environment. In a five-and-a-half-day experiment, a
