Abstract: Smart offices and kinds of intelligent workplaces are one of the recent results of intensive research provided in the area of ambient intelligence (or its relating areas ubiquitous computing, etc.) Ambient intelligence approaches and technologies are more and more matured to be able of creating a really smart environment that is intelligently helpful to users surrounded by such an environment. There are well known applications of this concept in various areas, like smart home environment, or smart support to elderly or handicapped people, but in this talk we wish to concentrate on their suitability as a basis for intelligent workplaces. Such an intelligent workplace should be, among its other features, also helpful in managing knowledge that can be further on usefully exploited by the users working in the workplace. These environments inevitably need to be rich of knowledge; therefore a synergy of approaches and techniques from ambient intelligence as well as from knowledge management is necessary.
In our talk we wish to bring an overview of recent activities and research in the area of smart offices and other kinds of smart workplaces, including also smart classes at various types of educational institutions. We intend to present a number of recent approaches and a couple of recent interesting results in this challenging area.
