Context aware computing sought to deal with linking changes in the environment with computer systems. In other words, computing systems become more intelligent through analyzing and reacting to the physical world surrounding them. The coming era of cloud computing brings new opportunities to this long studied research area. By accumulating and aggregating physical world contextual information from multiple users and multiple devices over a long period, we can obtain collective social intelligence from them. Based on this, more innovative Internet services can be developed to facilitate people’s everyday lives. At Microsoft Research Asia, we are working on various technologies with a view to managing physical world information and building intelligence from them. In this talk, I will present our recent work on this direction, as well as other related works in Microsoft and the industry.
