Abstract

Adapting the behavior of a smart environment means to tailor its functioning to both context situation and users’ needs and preferences. In this paper we propose an agent-based approach for controlling the behavior of a Smart Environment that, based on the recognized situation and user goal, selects a suitable workflow for combining services of the environment. We use the metaphor of a butler agent that employs user and context modeling to support proactive adaptation of the interaction with the environment. The interaction is adapted to every specific situation the user is in thanks to a class of agents called Interactor Agents.
