An I-Room is an “intelligent room” which can act as a knowledge aid to support collaborative meetings and activities, especially when these involve sense-making about the current context, planning, considering options, and decision-making. The I-Room provides a generic technology basis for a wide range of potential collaborative applications and uses. It provides a conduit for accessing intelligent systems and knowledge bases from collaborative interaction spaces such as virtual worlds. Applications of the I-Room to date include emergency response operations centres used for experimentation and exercises, support to a geographically dispersed cross-disciplinary team engaged in the creation of a multi-media video game product and to mixedinitiative tutored whisky-tasting.
