Abstract
The Internet of Things has been a success for enterprises and several industrial sectors, but not yet a success for end-users in home environments at the fringe of the cloud. Many studies revealed that, beyond the initial amazement, connected devices add little value over their unconnected siblings, focus on too narrow use-cases in mostly hypothetical scenarios, often fail to provide a good out-of-the-box experience, and not able to learn and adapt in a meaningful way to our complex contextualized realities. With interactive intentional programming, we aim to solve smart home automation issues in a new way. This talk will introduce the main challenges, principles and IIP concepts, and their dynamics in an end-user context.
