One of the challenges for the fast advancing ambient intelligence vision is to maintain the perception of the future home being a safe place where the inhabitants relax, enjoy and feel comfortable. In a home environment, the role of technology is approached skeptically; hence, there is a need to provide highlevel communication between the users and the intelligent space so that the users get accustomed to what technology has to offer. In this paper, we introduce a Computing with Words (CWWs) framework which provides human-like reasoning via abstraction and high-level description of thoughts, feelings, etc. This framework can be considered as an exocortex as it aids the human thinking outside the bio-brain. The CWWs paradigm aims to establish high level home-human communication, which is necessary for people to perceive the technology as a cooperative guide and an improvement on their life styles. © 2013 IEEE.
