How to define goodness of smart environments?

Abstract

In this paper I tackle with issues related to the design of good future smart environments (i.e. ambient in-telligence, digital life, ubiquitous computing). One of the biggest questions in the design is that how we can assure that the designs we are creating will be good in all aspects and for everyone. How can we ad-just the human centered design process so that the outcome of the development is increasing our experi-enced quality of life? In this regard defining goodness shifts our view to the ethical analysis of goodness and to the normative analysis of good smart environments. The presumption is that the forthcoming smart environments can make this consideration designing for goodness even harder. This paper gives preliminary analysis of the concepts good and quality of life when designing future smart environments.
