Extract

ABSTRACT: Developments in human-computer interaction, sensor technology and artificial intelligence
when coupled with integrated indoor ecology control systems provide the basis for establishing
intelligent rooms, spaces where peripheral awareness of human activities and social context situates
the environment’s behaviour, reaction to and interaction with the human occupants. This article
describes the design of intelligent rooms from the perspective of these rooms as sentient agents. The
article presents the design and development of The Sentient in the Faculty of Architecture at the
University of Sydney. We present technologies to afford The Sentient with sensors, thinking and effector
faculties.
