2 3 UbiComp in 1993 Very new to the field of CS Ubiquitous Computing was introduced by Weiser in 1991 Main goal was (and still is) to get the computers “out of the way of everyday activities” Technology finally caught up to the proposed ideas for “environmental computing” and “invisible computing” 4 UbiComp in 1993 (Cont.) Some thought Virtual Reality was the ideal UbiComp solution, but the technology was not advanced enough Ruled out GUIs as the complete solution Identified several key needs of a successful UbiComp device Still struggling with some of the same problems today

3 5 Phases of Development Researchers at Xerox PARC identified the initial set of ubiquitous computing “phases” Construct Deploy Evaluate Realized that Phase One would not achieve the “optimal invisibility” 6 Potential Platforms Devices of various sizes Enough diversity to give some sense of scope Must be found in everyday life and used frequently Above all, they must be unobtrusive

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
