Abstract

The paper approaches an emergent field of the information and communications technologies (ICT), the context-aware communications and information technology (CACIT). The way CACIT generates a new paradigm for the ICT development optimization, the driving force of the information society (IS) toward knowledge based society (KBS), due to CACIT features and influence factors, is analyzed. The analysis reveals that CACIT has a huge potential, as it is based on the incommensurable expansion force of digital space (DS), which is generated by the digital technologies (DT) associated mainly with ICT. In order to identify the development mechanisms of CACIT, the paper first identifies the DS features and driving factors, where human imagination plays a prominent role, as DS covers practically all humankind activity fields and this way the applications are limited only by the Earth resources and DT limits, which is not the case of imagination. An important result of the analysis is the identification of the CACIT main evolution steps, starting from the early human context-aware communications based on the five senses, which are still driving the actual principal development directions of the applications. On the other hand, although the paper space does not allow a detailed analysis of the CACIT main classes of applications and developing principles, some relevant examples of such CACIT classes are presented, where healthcare is a zero priority (largely analyzed) which turns back the benefit of CACIT to its main inspiration source represented by the people. Other analyzed relevant classes of CACIT include the GPS applications and the management of moving objects or living things (cars, trucks, cows etc.) based on GPS and wireless communications. The paper main conclusion is that CACIT will essential contribute on large scale to the optimization of IS/KBS by a multitude of criteria, including time, Earth resources, healthcare and ... the creative potential – which then will also leverage...human imagination.
