Samenvatting:
Samenvatting:Within the next decade, as digital technologies become increasinglypervasive, we may find ourselves living with almost invisible,intelligent interactive systems. An 'Ambient Intelligence' that couldsoon form a natural part of our everyday existence. But what types oftechnology do we want around us, and what roles do we want thosetechnologies to play? How will we interact with them? What new businessopportunities and issues will they present? And how can we ensure thatthey improve the overall quality of our lives, rather than just improvingefficiency? In The New Everyday, experts in technology, design, socialscience and business come together to explore these questions, lookingahead to consider not only future benefits, but also potential dangersand social and ethical issues. This overview is richly illustrated withprojects conducted at Philips and elsewhere. In their dual introductionthe editors place the discussions in a broader context. This is a bookfor anyone being interested in how we can ensure that the technologies weuse are appropriate and meet our individual and social needs, or indeedfor anyone interested in what everyday life could be like in the nearfuture.
