Abstract

In this paper, we propose a computing model named ”symbiotic computing” to bridge an e-Gap between the real space (RS) and the web space (WS). The symbiotic computing is a post ubiquitous computing model based on an agent-based model to bring in social heuristics and awareness of the RS into the WS. The symbiotic computing is defined as a space of computing model spanned by three axes of the Ubiquitous computing, the Web computing and P/S computing, which consists of Perceptualware and Socialware. The last section of this paper describes a prototypical system of a symbiotic computing-based application of uEyes, which is a gentle watch over system for elderly people in an ubiquitous computing environment.
