I saw an interesting review of the Intel Developers Forum that seemed to indicate Intel recognising the onset of ubiquitous sensor nets, event streams and clouds, and the need to derive situation awareness from these events. Although they use the term “context”, I’m pretty sure that is mostly synonymous with “complex event” …
Intel’s PR mentions:
- Intel CTO Justin Rattner named rich, context-driven user experience with technology as the future of computing.
- Rattner discussed a new generation of devices that are expected to shape the next era of personal technology.
- While developing new ways of sensing, gathering and sharing contextual data, Intel is even more focused on ensuring privacy and security.
