Cnet: At the Intel Developer Forum, Chief Technology Officer and Director of Intel Labs Justin Rattner introduced the idea of "context-aware computing." He foresees an era when smartphones and other devices will make recommendations based on their owners' daily habits, location and mood. For example, knowing what types of things a user likes, a device may recommend certain activities and hotels when the user is on vacation.
Already, Intel has a TV remote that engages in "unsupervised learning." It can figure out who is using the remote and make programming suggestions.
