This chapter provides an overview of the area of Behaviour Monitoring and Interpretation, BMI for short. It outlines this research direction and gives examples of current research. In a nutshell, BMI is about monitoring behaviour of humans or other entities and interpretation of the observed behaviour. Then, the chapter shortly discusses how BMI compares to related areas such as Ambient Intelligence and ubiquitous computing. Some details about future challenges are finally shown.
