his chapter presents an analysis of the ambitions that lie behind the concept of Ambient Intelligence as it is presented by the advocates and researchers working in the field. In particular it looks at the ideas regarding the forms of natural and intuitive forms of interaction that are envisaged – including agents and robots – from a philosophical perspective. The views on interaction are analysed and framed in the conceptual framework of Don Idhe's phenomenological analysis that describes how we as humans relate to the world existentially, mediated through the technologies that we construct. We compare and contrast the ambient intelligent vision on technology with some other ones.
