The unprecedented adoption of pervasive computing, autonomic communication, mesh networking, and ubiquitous sensing technologies in sync up with a growing and gorgeous variety of highly miniaturized, multifaceted and smart devices, sensors, actuators, robots, displays, and controllers has set in a stimulating and sparkling stage for the fulfillment of the ambient intelligence 'AmI' vision. That is, intelligence everywhere all the time is the ultimate vision for the evolving and enabling IT. IT infrastructures are increasingly virtualized and autonomic, IT systems and networks are becoming contextaware and cognitive through selfidentification and environmental monitoring tags, stickers, sensors, system buildingblocks such as services are fully processcentric, modeldriven application components engineering is gaining more traction, etc. Interoperable and shared services and intelligent agents all collaboratively set to facilitate the realization of futuristic AmI applications. These have given the relevant and right confidence in the minds of many in order to establish and sustain a series of stunning smart environments such as smart homes, buildings, hospitals, hotels, stations, stadiums, etc. A bevy of realtime and realworld applications such as ambient assisted living 'AAI', smart energy management, etc. are being explored, experimented, and espoused. The industry is abuzz with a growing array of robust and resilient AmI technologies, frameworks, middleware, etc. Natural interfaces for machinetomachine 'M2M' communication are fast emerging and evolving. Smart healthcare is the first mover to the technologysponsored and splurged AmI space.
