Abstract

Cloud computing, which can provide ubiquitous services, is a nexus of hardware, software, data and people. Service model is an essential part of cloud computing. It is recognized that the service model should provide precise computing results with low costs. However, we think it is not adequate as a computing paradigm if no consideration is made on the human aspects, especially, the factors of end users. In this study, we propose a novel service model: Flowable Service Model (FSM),which aims to provide appropriate services (as a flow) for users in any time and any place, and let them to enjoy ambient life empowered by cloud computing. How to make the services flowing from the cyber world to the real world? Being inspired by James Williams' stream of consciousness theory, we conceive FSM to leverage a variety of personal information, such as users' behaviors and habits. The operational mechanism for FMS is described in this paper. We expect our proposed model can make every user to feel more ambient with available cloud services.
