Nowadays, with the never unseen spreading of computer controlled applications, the usage of smart environment systems that aim to improve the living conditions and quality of everyday life are gaining more and more importance. Intelligent Space (iSpace) based systems are good examples: they strive to create an intelligent, comfortable environment for higher quality, natural and easy to follow lifestyle. The goal of this paper is to present a research that focuses on developing a new Intelligent Space application that is able to comprehend and execute commands given by human users. The presented solution is also able to learn commands that are given periodically under specific conditions and execute them if the conditions occur.
