The first requirement for building an ambient society is a debate with all stakeholders; citizens, small and medium enterprises, multinationals, semi government and government institutionson the granularity of experience that counts as input for the hard wired sensors that are the first line of picking up signals that count as data for the datamining, data, and not noise.Therefore we feel that research into and quick and dirty applications of soft biometrics and innovative ways of gaining biofeedback in intuitive and non invasive ways is of paramount importance.
Taking into account as much of the granularity of experience as input into our systems, may lead to not only an acceptance of ambient intelligence, but an embracing of it by people who realize that this could actually help them gain more agency – individual and collective - through getting realtime feedback on real actions and real needs.
