*Definition:

Context aware systems leverage user information and environmental information to provide a more personal and tailored experience. Some examples of contextually aware applications include communication systems and health monitors. These systems use sensors and software to collect data to guide the user's responses.

Context is defined as "the situation in which an object or situation is located." It is used in context awareness to gather information about the environment, retrieve relevant information, and act on the environment. Context is also defined as "a complement to location awareness." It is a capability of computing systems to recognize situational context, which can be used to predict user needs and provide effective responses.

Context-aware systems are able to interpret low-level contextual data and deliver information without explicit request. The accuracy and precision of context-aware systems are largely determined by the quality of the algorithms used. The system's ability to provide accurate information increases with the number of contextual inputs. Users must understand the system's behavior in order to make effective decisions.
