Anticipating the Future of Smart Homes: Functionality & UX
Live video is nearly everywhere today, including the smart home – and it’s not just about security. Use cases are limited only by the imagination. The challenge is that there are still a lot of old technologies in use for delivering live video but new and better ways exist. Join Jeff for a short overview of new technologies and best practices for providing the best live video experience in any smart home solution.
In order to provide users with intelligent interaction models throughout the home, it is essential to build smart home features that take advantage of ambient computing and contextual awareness. By leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence, we can rethink how users will interact with their homes in the future. Join to hear David Schairer share Google's philosophy and approach to integrating assistance in the smart home.
The smart home is the new battlefront in the war against cyber threats. The latest disclosures from WikiLeaks have revealed that intelligence agencies has been spying on users through home gateways for over a decade. That’s not to mention the threats coming from financially motivated cybercriminals. As the Mirai incident has shown us, consumer-grade devices are woefully exposed to hackers. And consumers seem to lack the will or knowledge to fight back. Or do they? What we know about the security threats facing the smart home and consumer attitudes is largely based on anecdotal and piece meal evidence. This presentation will aim to set the records straight, analyzing the results of the first global research on Smart Home Security commissioned by prpl Foundation. We can reveal that consumers actively avoid smart products which don’t offer enough in-built security – which should be a wake-up call to manufacturers everywhere. Attendees will leave taking away a list of best practice tips to help secure their smart homes. The findings will also be food for thought for IoT industry stakeholders looking for guidance in how best to approach security in the world of embedded computing.
