than teach your gadgets what to do, Intel researchers say that in the not-too-distant
future they will learn about you on their own. That means where you are, how you're
feeling, and what you want.
It's actually not as creepy as it sounds. Intel Chief Technology Officer and Director of
Intel Labs Justin Rattner took the stage Wednesday at the annual Intel Developer Forum here
to talk about the future of "context-aware computing," what Intel is doing about it, and
how gadgets can make life easier for their owners, but in a way that the owners can

computing is Intel's term for devices that anticipate what people need or want and guide
them accordingly. The context is gathered through a combination of "hard sensors"--cameras
that detect movement and GPS-based location information--and "soft sensors"--such as
calendar information or pieces of data you input into a device.
The most consumer-friendly example is something Intel Labs has been working on for a while
called the Personal Vacation Assistant. It's a mobile device (still in prototype phase)
that looks a lot like an oversized GPS. It uses what Intel is calling "context" to help
travelers make decisions about stuff to do while playing tourist. Your personal travel
preferences (where you like to stay, things you like to do), combined with data about stuff
you've already done, your location, and your calendar schedule will help the device make

recommendations for sights to see, places to eat, and more. At the end of a trip, the
device can auto-generate a travel blog too, including photos and videos.
