A View on Co-existence of Various Entities in Intelligent Environments
There is a number of traditional points of view from which intelligent environments are usually investigated. The most frequent among them are technological, social, economical, ethical, or political point of view. However, up to now there were just a few papers devoted to a research focused on co-existence of various entities that share such an intelligent environment and have to interact there. If we are viewing an intelligent environment as a collection (if not a community) of intelligent entities, capable of communication and performing activities based on a kind of mutual co-operation, then a kind of a co-existential point of view could be useful for further contemplations about various issues arising from this co-existence. The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss important aspects of co-existence of intelligent entities of various types (including humans) in intelligent environments and to formulate some interesting and important problems related to such a co-existence.
