Computing as environmental process and environment as computing devices. Computational devices become ever smaller, distributed and increasingly integrated into the surroundings; they disappear into environment with only the user interface remaining perceivable for users. Ubicomp studies both intrinsic computing, as it appears in nature, and designed computing, that converges towards ambient intelligence. Research has human-centric focus with emphasis on interaction; user experience and cognitive support that alleviates users informational overload as well as extend cognition.
Ubiquitous computing (ambient computing) is an emerging research field based on a new concept of computing as a part of users environment. Unlike previous forms of computing: mainframes, PC s, and present day distributed computing, ubiquitous computing can be implemented using variety of devices and formats available throughout the physical environment, deeply embedding computation in the world thus making them effectively invisible to the user (Mark Weiser). Envisaged Ubicomp technologies supporting ambient intelligence are embedded, adaptive, anticipatory and context aware.
