The IQ Exchange For Intelligence Systems, AI, Expert System, Virtual Reality

Ubiquitous Computing

Augmented Reality [AR] is closely aligned with the domains of ubiquitous computing [UC] and wearable computers.


Ubiquitous Computing

Ubiquitous computing, once known as "embodied virtuality", aims to express the exact opposite to the concept of virtual reality

The greatest difference between AR and UC is that UC does not focus on the disappearance of conscious and intentional interaction with an information system as much as AR does.

UC systems such as pervasive computing devices usually maintain the notion of explicit and intentional interaction which often blurs in typical AR work.

The theory of Humanistic Intelligence [HI], however, also challenges this semiotic notion of signifier and signified.

Humanistic Intelligence

HI is intelligence that arises from the human being in the feedback loop of a computational process in which the human is inextricably intertwined, and does not typically require conscious thought or effort. In this way, HI, which arises from wearable Computer Mediated Reality, shares a lot in common with AR.

Others define UC as a subset of AR's original goal, but as time has passed, it has come to be understood as representing the whole domain of AR.


Future Of Ubiquitous Computing

This video briefly explores the future of ubiquitous computing in terms of the Apple iPhone interface. The iPhone is said to be the first multimedia device to bring ubiquitous computing and multi-touch technology to the mass consumer market.
