An Actually Smart Smart Home
Just because home products are connected, doesn't make them smart. Mainstream consumer adoption of connected home products will only happen when we begin aggregating data from different manufacturers, then use deep learning and artificial intelligence to turn that data into something useful. In this talk, Sean will discuss what protocol, aggregation, time series-based predictive analytics, and user experience changes are necessary to make smart home features like “monitor my health” or “lower my energy bill” a reality.
