This work aims at a) identifying the forthcoming changes in our everyday life due to the ever-increasing level of complexity that inculcates our interactions with the devices surrounding us, b) introducing a bio-inspired world model (framework) that deals with different perspectives of the interrelations developed in symbiotic ecologies where people and artefacts coexist, and c) proposing a high level architectural scheme of an AmI space reflecting the basic ingredients of the future indoors/outdoors applications based on Swarm Intelligence and Complexity Science.
