Perceptually Enabled Software

A White Paper for the Workshop on New Visions for Software Design and Productivity

By Paul Robertson and Howie Shrobe



Our vision of ubiquitous computing is that our environment will be heavily populated by devices under computer control, and that these devices will be interconnected and interfaced with each other and with us. Many of the devices under computer control will be sensors that provide a window from the world of interconnected computation into the physical world around us. Our view of ubiquitous computing makes it clear that moving ahead in the sensor, effector arena is not sufficient, we also need our computers to be able to dialogue, and understand both command and context. We understand our world, and communicate with each other via seeing, hearing, speaking and gesturing. If we are not to become enslaved by our ubiquitous computing environments, they will need to communicate with us in the same manner, and understand the context in which such dialogues occur. We focus on what is required of software development tools and methods for building the comprehensive vision systems of the embedded computing future. In particular, we present an example of a self-adaptive software architecture for vision systems, developed by the first author while at Oxford...
