Abstract
The incapability to foresee or react to all the events that take place in a specific environment supposes an important handicap for Ambient Intelligence systems, expected to be self-managed, proactive, and goal-driven. Endowing such systems with capabilities to understand and reason about context, seems like a promising solution to overcome this hitch. Supported on the service-oriented paradigm, composing rather than combining services provides a reasonable mean to implement versatile. This paper describes how systems for Ambient Intelligence can be improved by combining automatic service composition and reasoning capabilities upon a distributed middleware framework.
