Abstract of the Article
This paper starts with a short definition of the research field sustainable ambient computing
(SAC), which unites ambient intelligence, and ubiquitous computing. SAC takes into account not
only the ecological aspects of life cycle assessment and energy efficiency, but also includes HCI as
main pillar. Part of SAC is building management systems, which, in their current form, struggle
with lacking user integration and rebound effects. The prospect is to build, implement and test a
graphical user interface in a new energy efficient building at Leuphana University, which provides
a convenient surrounding and an user-friendly system at the same time. According to the
pragmaticist approach of C. S. Peirce’s sign theory, we propose abduction as a method of
inference and semeiosis as a triadic communication process. Regarding the spread of social media
usage, we suggest using elementary communication patterns taken from this field for building
management systems, because known communication patterns encourage the usage of uncommon
ambient computing systems. Hence, acceptance, a major challenge when trying to successfully
integrate users, is facilitated. Here fore we looked on typical communication patterns of the most
used social media platforms. A successful usage of these patterns in this specific context will raise
the perception und knowledge of energy consumption, and can be expected also to change habits
on the long run.
