<p>The holy grail of search is intent; of browsing, scent; and of classification, meaning. Each of these pillar technologies of the information age therefore depends critically on extracting and mining human context. Context awareness is the discipline that brings together technologies for extracting data about the larger human context and reasoning with that data at scale. It seeks to make the benefits of contextualization as pervasive in our lives as technology itself.</p>
