Plenary discussions focused on agency from Smart Objects as well as this topic's relationship to Digital Object Memories. The discussions were backed up by presentations addressing various agency-related topics in the context of smart objects.
Topics encountered were collected and grouped in a mindmap. Top-level items include why agency is employed (application scenarions), contents used to describe agency, as well as definition and usage of agency-related information.
Complementary practical exercises provided an insight to the matter, e.g., how to administrate instructions concerning object behavior in Digital Object Memories,, and how instructions from smart objects actually may influence and guide human behavior. While interacting with objects, partipants experienced emerging relationships between objects and learned about potential applications of objects. For instance, tagged ingredients triggered participants to store them under appropriate conditions, and then suddenly issue new instructions that eventually match the recipe of a dish.
The participants summarized their experience as follows.
DOMe-IoT 2012 is held at Pittsburgh, PA, USA on September 8th, 2012 in conjunction with Ubicomp 2012.
