Special Issue on Computational Intelligence for Ambient Intelligence

Ambient Intelligence aims to creating a sensible and caring environment surrounding people so that they can live, operate and interact easier, supported by and immersed in invisible technological infrastructures, sensitive and responsive to people and their behaviors, and capable of delivering advanced functionalities, services and experiences. People will be the center of attention of these infrastructures so as to satisfy their needs and desires, by exploiting the growing opportunities offered, in particular, by modern pervasive and ubiquitous technologies, mobile environments, sensor technologies, multi-sensor analysis and fusion, feature extraction, adaptive and evolving paradigms, approximate reasoning, intelligent systems, knowledge extraction, data mining, knowledge-based services, autonomous mental development, machine learning, and advanced user interfaces. In environments based on ambient intelligence there is a growing need and interest for adaptivity and evovability in order to adjust the system behavior to the changing environment and user’s needs, as well as to learn them more in detail during the system operation when they cannot be a priori completely specified. On the other side, needs, features, and the environment may not be always characterized precisely, and accurately, thus demanding for the ability of fuzzy description. On-line and continuous learning and knowledge management become attractive to ensure the most appropriate configuration and operation of the system, tailored on the specific needs of each deployment. Cooperativeness, integration, scalability, and interoperability are also important features of ambient-intelligence systems to provide degree of growth to the applications and systems. Computational intelligence is a class of techniques which are inspired by nature for problem solving by specifically mimic the adaptivity and evolvability of nature. This special issue is focused on publishing original papers that address all aspects of the design, implementation and applications in the ambient intelligence domain by using Computational Intelligence (encompassing, e.g., neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence, hybrid computational intelligence systems, autonomous mental development, machine learning, intelligent multi-agent systems, organic computing, autonomic systems). Research areas exploiting Computational Intelligence with relevance to this special issue would therefore include, but are not limited to, the following fields:
