Abstract :
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are intended to develop, maintain and administrate information using computer systems, communication networks, portable devices, etc. In addition to this, the present paper deals with ICT’s power to create new contexts: the so-called digital ambiences. According to the authors, the design and even the concept of these intelligent ambiences has problems that have to do both with the use of reasoning and the display of inferential and interpretative processes to interact with the social context in an individual or a collective way. Solving these philosophical problems could guide the development and implantation of ubiquitous and embodied technologies that would be able to expand human cognitive and motor capacity.
