Researchers at Microsoft are developing intelligent radios that can sense their surroundings and adjust their mode of operation accordingly. Dubbed ?cognitive radios?, the technology is expected to reach the market within five years, finding uses in public safety devices and wireless networks.

?A cognitive radio is aware of its environment, its own capabilities, the rules within which it can operate, and its operator?s needs and privileges,? explained Charles W. Bostian, an Alumni Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech.

?It is capable of changing its operating modes in ways that maximise things that the user wants while staying within the rules ... is capable of learning in the process and of developing configurations that its designer never anticipated.?
