Abstract:Context awareness is a design approach in computer science that creates computer applications that take the situation of its users into account. Smart applications learn from their environment by using for example cameras, they affect the people and objects that are around them, and, more generally, they use every modern means possible to pursue their user’s goals more effectively and efficiently than non-context-aware applications. This thesis re-assesses the role of human expertise in the creation of such applications, arguing that phenomenology itself offers better guidance than the guidance given by current phenomenological approaches to context awareness
