Abstract: Ever since Mark Weiser and Philips connected systems intelligence with cognitive intelligence and formed the basis for the development of the ‘internet of things’, much has been written about the coming of ambient intelligence (AmI). Twenty five years on from Weiser, the physical basis for AmI is being realised due to the emergence of materials which have the capability to be programmed for intelligent use and are capable of being product design friendly. Importantly, this outcome allows the acceleration of new product and system technologies using conformable transparent electronics and photonics i.e. from materials to physical AmI and is the critical driver for the future of organic CMOS and the printed electronics semiconductor industry. At the Royal College of Art, we think about AmI in terms of creative design through the concept of dots, lines, surfaces and 3D structures to enable and enhance ambient assisted living in applications from Health & Wellbeing to wearable technology and responsive lifestyles to portable power & printable light.
