Keynote Title: Intelligent Systems in an Increasingly Confusing World

Keynote Lecturer: Dr. Anind K. Dey

Keynote Chair: Dr. Lech Jozwiak

Presented on: 07-03-2011

Abstract: Today's world is exciting for researchers in mobile and pervasive computing. There are billions of users carrying the devices that they need to conduct their research. Vast amounts of data from sensors and users, along with labels provided by users and crowdsourcing services make it easier than ever to build intelligent systems.
Location-based services are commonplace, yet truly smart environments still elude us. There is still a gap between the intelligent systems we can build and our visions of the smart environments that can support our everyday lives.
In this talk, I will discuss the leaps that intelligent systems have to make, the changes and problems that users will have to endure, and the exciting future ahead of us in fulfilling these visions. The vision will include better and more personalized understanding of users, more sophisticated use of machine learning, and much, much better interfaces than today's mobile devices provide us. It's an exciting time to be a pervasive computing research: we have come so far, and we have so much further to go!
