NAVARRO, María G.. Environmental intelligence: intelligent environments and the challenge of inferential processes. Eidos [online]. 2011, n.15, pp. 184-205. ISSN 2011-7477.
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are intended to develop, maintain and administrate information using computer systems, communication networks, portable dispositives, etc. In addition to that, this paper deals with ICT's power to create new contexts: what is called digital ambiences. According to the author the design and even the concept of these intelligent ambiences has problems that have to do both with the use of reasoning and the display of inferential and interpretative processes to interact with the social context in an individual or a collective way. Solving these philosophical problems could guide the development and implantation of ubiquitous and embodied technologies that would be able to amplify the cognitive and motive capacity of people.
Keywords : Information and communication technologies; ambient intelligence; interpretation; argumentation theories; inferentialism.
