Abstract : The plethora of interconnected devices that surrounds modern people has yet to work together as a whole. An intelligent environment must sense and react to the actions of people, but to that end a large quantity of information must be exchanged throughout the system. Under realistic conditions, it is impossible to control and coordinate the exchange of information in a centralised way. Solving this problem involves key concepts like self-organisation, emergent behaviour and context-awareness. Continuing previous work on self-organising cognitive multi-agent systems for the exchange and management of information, this paper introduces two aspects of context-awareness - pressure and interest - that make the system-s emergent behaviour more context-sensitive and, therefore, more adaptive to a changing environment.
