  9. 9. Ambient Intelligence Informatics & Communications Ltd. … where Pervasive meets Social… The vision of SOCIETIES is to develop a complete integrated solution via a Pervasive Community and Cooperating Smart Space which extends pervasive systems beyond the individual to dynamic communities of users. Our research will embrace online community services , such as Social Networking, and thus offer new and powerful ways of working, communicating and socialising. … where Pervasive meets Social… Industry Research SME Academic
