2013 2013 9th International Conference on Intelligent Environments  
One form of complexity in intelligent environments arises from their heterogeneous nature. The growing variety of environments and countless stereotypes of users operating Intelligent Environments will, theoretically, increase the complexity and resources needed to utilise them. However we argue that utilizing Crowd Intelligence techniques in Intelligent Environments offer several advantages for dealing with these complexities. A novel architecture called a Crowd Based Heterogeneous Ambient
