How can we reason about new and future pervasive technologies? With a potentially infinite number of combinations of such technology, is there a way to avoid pitfalls such as intrusion of privacy? At best, we currently have depictions in Sci-fi movies of instances of such technologies. But thinking through such examples one soon realizes that they just don’t work. Is that the best we can do?
We are currently lacking a framework for understanding and describing pervasive technologies. Much like the GUI and Windows framework helps us in thinking about the various software applications that exist, I have developed a model that can foster the growth of pervasive technologies and their acceptance by the general population.
