Full interoperability of networked devices in the home has been kind of an elusive concept for quite some years. Amigo, an Integrated Project within the EU 6-th framework program, tries to make home networking a reality by addressing two key issues: First, it brings together many major players in the domestic appliances, communications, consumer electronics and computer industry to develop a common open source middleware platform. Second, emphasis is placed on the development of intelligent user services that make the benefit of a networked home environment tangible for the end user. This paper shows how speech processing can contribute to this second goal of user-friendly, personalized, context-aware services.
