Context Aware Computing
Context Aware Computing is a form of AI driven computing, in which the computing device the user is interfacing with has a low-level intelligence on it, usually running just under the software layer the user is interfacing with. It is aware to some degree of what the user is attempting to do, and so provides options, or in some cases automatically performs support services based on its assessment of the task the user is carrying out. The goal being to make life easier for the user, or make a more automated task more efficient.
