Tahl Milburn CEO and Founder at LifeState


Tahl has been involved in home automation (smart homes) for more
than 40 years! It was the 1970s and he was "automating" his room while still in high school with parts from Radio Shack. In the 1980s, he was automating factories for GM and Ford. And in each decade since, Tahl has continued to evolve his "life automation" system, Liam, into one of the most comprehensive systems in operation. Tahl is a popular speaker on IoT and automation, having presented at conferences as diverse as the IoT in Oil & Gas Conference in September to the ACM Multimedia conference last year to multiple Quantified Self conferences. He was interviewed by National Geographic in 2017. He has been featured in Electronic House magazine and Home Automation magazines. In 2015 he started a IoT healthcare company, LifeState, and this year took on a full-time Executive Advisor role at Appian Corporation as well.
