The Association for the Advancement of Intelligent Environments (AAIE) is a non-profit scientific society devoted to advancing the understanding of, and commercialisation of, basic research relating to intelligent environments.
Intelligent Environments (IEs) use networked embedded-computing technology, augmented with artificial intelligence and pervasive computing architecture (both software and hardware), to create environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people. Such environments are as varied as the places people inhabit encompassing settings such as homes, classrooms, factories, transport, clothing and online virtual worlds, They are constructed using a mix of innovative software and hardware concepts and, as such, promote the efficiency of transactions and activities, facilitate presence and participation, improve user experience and enable better or new lifestyles or methods of production. Any aspect of science, engineering, architecture, sociology, government, education or business that touches on these ideas is relevant to the work of this association.
The association provides a multidisciplinary interactive forum for researchers and practitioners from the above disciplines to collaborate on the advancement of theoretical and practical research. To date, the major AAIE activities include organizing conferences, symposia, and workshops (see www.intenv.org), plus publishing books, journals and proceedings. In the longer term the association hopes to be able to award grants, scholarships, and other honours. The AAIE's membership has strong international representation making it a truly the global community.
