Abstract

Ambient intelligence is not only limited to rooms and buildings. In the future whole cities will become intelligent environments – with people networking with each other, dating, finding interesting places (e.g. restaurants, museums, meeting places), using public transportation or dealing with traffic and parking problems. In such a city, millions of inhabitants interact with each other and benefit from information other people or sensors provide. It feels just like a village where somebody always helps finding a restaurant, bar or theatre, were the citizen’s choices, moves and opinions influence urban planning and public intervention. Such a city and its applications can be realized by combining two major trends in mobile computing: Ambient Intelligence and Web 2.0. In this workshop we will be looking for technologies – present and upcoming – that can make Wiki-City real: Technologies interconnecting people, places, events, opinions and digital online content.
