The advent of the digital era, the Internet, and the development of fast com­ puting devices that can access mass storage servers at high communication bandwidths have brought within our reach the world of ambient intelligent systems. These systems provide users with information, communication, and entertainment at any desired place and time. Since its introduction in 1998, the vision of Ambient Intelligence has attracted much attention within the re­ search community. Especially, the need for intelligence generated by smart al­ gorithms, which run on digital platforms that are integrated into consumer elec­ tronics devices, has strengthened the interest in Computational Intelligence. This newly developing research field, which can be positioned at the inter­ section of computer science, discrete mathematics, and artificial intelligence, contains a large variety of interesting topics including machine learning, con­ tent management, vision, speech, data mining, content augmentation, profiling, contextual awareness, feature extraction, resource management, security, and privacy.
