TheWeb of Things (WoT) together with mashup-like applications is gaining popularity with the development of the Internet towards a network of interconnected objects, ranging from cars and transportation cargos to electrical appliances. In this chapter we provide a brief architectural overview of technologies which can be used in WoT mashups with emphasis on artificial intelligence technologies such as conceptualization and stream processing. We also look at data sources and existing WoT mashups. In the last part of the chapter we discuss the architecture and implementation of Videk, a prototype mashup for environmental intelligence.
